Pinkfresh Studio Essentials 3 Release Blog Hop


Hello Friends and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Release Hop! 
Today we're sharing the Essentials 3 collection, which is packed with super versatile dies that work year-round.


But seeing as we're just mere weeks away from the Holidays, I couldn't resist!


For my tags today, I've used the beautiful new Teardrop Tags dies.
They are such a unique shape, and they come with fillable elements which can be used to cut out intricate designs (see below). To decorate the tags, I've used a mix of stamps from the previous release, which I'm still very much crushing on. I'll link them up below!


For my card, I used the same tags, cut with one of the leafy accents that comes in the set. Aren't they so pretty and delicate?! I layered up the white tag with a kraft one underneath, and stamped it up with merry touches. Just below that, I used the insert cut from the Fancy Oval die, which I added at the very bottom of the card. For the card base, I used the Ornate Banner die, which is probably my favorite from the release! It's such a fun way too add a little shape to a card base.


Which is your favorite?!
