Pinkfresh Studio January 2019 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the the Pinkfresh Studio January 2019 Release Blog Hop!  There are so many products to introduce to you from this release. This is my first blog hop with Pinkfresh studio, I made two cards to celebrate this event.

<Card 1>

I started by stamping all images from Sweet Lemonade Stamp set on to  a piece of 80lbs white card stock. I stamped them extra in a few colors  just in case I need to make more cards later. That is my way to save my time and it works like a charm every time. I cut them all with Sweet Lemonade Coordinating dies and set aside.

I wanted to keep the background simple but with textures, so I grabbed a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper and cut the sides slight narrow. I attached it onto a A2 sized card base. There are so many trendy water-colored lemonade images out there, so I quickly recreated it by adding some blue watercolor paints on the top of background.

Once the background dried, I adhered selected images using liquid glue or foam tapes. At last, I added some clear sparkling sequins to give the card a little shin!


<Card 2>

Next up is a Floral card using Spring Floral Stand Along Cuts. When you have such a gorgeous die, it is so easy to make a great card.

To start my card, I ink blended Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tattered Rose, Worn lipstick and Seedless preserve onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper. Then I splattered water over the background and blotted it with paper towel to create the special effect.

Then I cut two sets of border die cuts from Spring Floral Stand Along Cuts out of 80lbs white card stock. I attached them around the card base using Multi Medium Matte. I pulled out the sentiment “thinking of you”  from Scripted Bold Sentiment 2 Stamp set, stamp it with versamark clear ink and embossed with metallic gold embossing powder. At last, I added some clear drops to the background as embellishments.
