Happy May, loves! Today is an exciting one because it marks Pigment Craft Co’s May release.. There’s a fun Instagram hop to celebrate as well, but let’s take a peek at some of the goodies, shall we!?
Both of these feature the new Blossoming Stamp set and dies, as well as the Best Ever stamp set and dies. When I first got these products, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted my cards to look like but was very much in the mood for stamping! I sat down to stamp and die cut a whole bunch of little blossoms and leaves, and when it came time to put my cards together, having all the pieces ready to go made assembling very easy.
For the first card, I used a simple nested die to cut an oblong white hexagon that I then arranged the blossoms around. I backed it with foam tape for some dimension, and tucked a few extra leaves underneath before fully securing it to my trimmed white card panel. Next, I used the Best Ever stamp set and its coordinating dies to create my sentiment, which I embossed in white on deep green cardstock. I backed the letters with skinny foam strips, then secured it in the center of the hexagon.
For the second card, I used the negative of that white panel that I cut the first oblong hexagon from as a frame around my sentiment. (Gotta love when nothing goes to waste, right?!) I embossed the sentiment ‘how lucky I am to have you’ on a plain white card panel, then backed hexagon piece with foam tape, placing it directly over top.
Before pressing the foam tape down firmly, I tucked a few blossoms and leaves inside. I added two larger blossom clusters on the top left and bottom right sides, then backed that panel with foam tape and centered it on my card base. Finally, I finished both cards with a few matte gold sequins.
As I mentioned, there’s an Instagram hop happening today where you’ll find a few more gorgeous ideas for putting the items in the new release to use. Pigment is also giving away some GREAT prizes, including the full release valued at over $550! You’ll find all the details in my Instagram feed here – just look for the image of the cards above. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck!
