Hi friends! Today I’ve got a card to share that I’ve created as part of the Pinkfresh Studio “Inspired By” Challenge for February. This is my first time playing along, and if it’s yours too, I’ll give you the gist…
Each month, Pinkfresh shares one card and one scrapbook layout designed by team members. The challenge is to use those as inspiration to make your own. That could be using the same colours, products, the general layout, or however else the card/layout inspires you. Participants add up to 3 creations to the challenge album (here’s the one for February) and in doing so, are entered to win a $25 Pinkfresh Studio gift card.
Here’s the inspo for this month from my fellow Pinkfresh Studio teammates:
The flowers featured in Dilay’s card are from the Floral Notes layering stencil set, which I used in combination with the Floral Notes stamp set on this card a while back. Both products are sized for slimline cards, but I loved how she let the flowers flow off the edges of a regular A2 card – as well as those beautiful purples!
For my design, I started out by stenciling the flowers on some smooth white cardstock. I chose Pinkfresh inks in Candy Violet and Royal Kiss, then chose Meadow and Emerald City for the leaves. Once the ink had completely dried, I swiped the surface with my anti-static powder bag, stamped the floral image with clear embossing ink, poured on some gold embossing powder and set it with my heat gun. The lines of the embossing don’t match up exactly with the edges of the stenciled images, but I was going for a more artsy look so that’s a-ok by me! While I was at it, I also embossed a ‘miss you so much’ from the Seamless Starburst Circles stamp set.
I die cut the floral image with the coordinating Floral Notes die, then used the Essentials Diagonal Stitched Plaid Die to create a white background with a bit of texture. I backed this with foam tape and mounted it on my card base, then adhered the flowers on top, tucking a few little leaves that I fussy cut behind the sentiment.
