It might nearly be May, but we can’t end April without another gorgeous new release from Pinkfresh Studio! I’m excited to be part of the blog hop celebrating all of the beautiful product that’s available as of today, and as always, I’ve got a project to share featuring some of them.
This release has a little of everything – hot foil, stamps, layering stencils, and dies, PLUS more gorgeous cover plates. There have been several cover plates released this year and I truly can’t get enough of them because they make such quick yet elegant textured backgrounds. If you, like me, enjoy a clean and simple design style, these are a must!
For today’s card, I’ve focused on the new Magnolias suite, which includes a stamp set, die and layering stencil set. To get started, I stamped the flowers in black ink, then colored them in with my blending brushes and Pinkfresh inks in Regal Kiss, Olive and Evergreen. (I couldn’t decide between the two greens so ended up using a little of each!) After using the coordinating die to cut them out, I foiled two circles using the new-ish Nested Circles hot foil plate set.
Luckily for me, there was a ‘have a wonderful day’ sentiment in the Rainbow Sentiments pack that coordinated perfectly with the purple in the magnolias. (A wonderful day indeed – I love these happy coincidences!)
All of these elements needed a background to sit on top of, so I used the new Floral and Diamond Tiles Cover Die to make this with a panel of white cardstock. After fiddling around with it for a while, choosing some Pinkfresh crystals, and finally committing with my glue pen, the card you see here was complete!
