Pinkfresh Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop Celebration


Today is a very special day...Pinkfresh Studio is celebrating its 5th Birthday!!
We have so much in store for you for today's hop (spoiler alert: there are many prizes, heaps of inspiration, and fun shopping deals), but I also want to share my own little birthday salutation before we get going.

I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to create with these beautiful products everyday and work with such an inspiring bunch of gals. It has been a really fun few months!

Thank you Pinkfresh Studio for five years of creativity, inspiration, support and friendship. Thank you for arming us with beautiful things to create our art with. I wish you many more years of creative bliss! 


So without further ado, let's get hopping! If you're joining along, you should have arrived here from the super, duper talented Nathalie's blog, but if you've lost your way or are just starting, you can see the full hop list here.


For my project today, I decided to use an older set, Fleur 1 stamp set. It is still one of my favorite florals. 
Actually, I think it may be the most-reached-for floral in my stamp bunch! Seeing how much I love florals, and that it's a predominant theme in my stash, that is saying a lot :) You can see other cards I've created with this set here, here and here.


Today, I decided to pair it with some vellum, gold embossing powder, and another favorite, versatile product, Wonder Stix. If you don't know about these incredible crayons, I've shared a three-part series which you can read here. But for now, let's chat more about these pretty petals. 


I added a dash of shimmer to my florals with the beautiful Nuvo shimmer pen, and some iridescent rhinestones all around the card.


For my sentiment, I used a gold ink, and a phrase from the Heart and Soul stamp set.


I added a couple of  little hearts, and my simple card is all complete.


Now before you head on to your next stop, we have  LOTS of fun things in store!
