Pinkfresh Studio September Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

Hi everyone! Welcome to your next stop on the Pinkfresh Studio September Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release blog hop.

Flowers, flowers and more flowers! This release is all about beautiful florals. I’ve got just one project today so I won’t keep you too long, you’ve got more inspirational posts to get to. Let’s get started.

I began with two new beautiful stencil sets, Garden Roses and Lush Peonies on Neenah solar white 110 lb. cardstock. I used Pinkfresh oranges for the roses: Peach Fuzz and Apricot. For the peonies I used: Ocean Breeze and Aquamarine. I doubled up Peach Fuzz and Ocean Breeze and used it on two layers because I didn’t want the bordering blooms to be too dynamic. For the leafy branches for both of the designs I used Fresh Pear and Grassy Knoll. When I was done ink blending I used the Garden Roses and Lush Peonies stamps and Detail Black ink, to stamp the outline of the images. I prefer to stamp over ink blended images rather than before inking them up, it’s a really subtle difference but I like the look of it better. Then I die cut them out with the accompanying dies and set them aside.

Time to play with that beautiful Inna’s Alpha design! Soooo pretty, right?! I used the 6-piece stencil first on more white cardstock. The letters were blended on with Soft Lilac and for the flowers I used Ocean Breeze, Aquamarine, Mermaid Cove and Fresh Pear and Grassy Knoll were used for those little leaves. Again, I used the Inna’s Alpha stamp set to lightly stamp over the blended image. Then I die cut them out with the accompanying die and started arranging my letters and the flowers around them.

I had to do a little fussy cutting, (I don’t think I’m very good at it, so I really tried to do as little as possible) but once I decided on the arrangement I used a big section of Press-n-Seal laid down over it all to pick it up, flip it over and put foam tape (2 layers) on the back of the pieces that were close to the center of the card. That way after they were glued down (yes I also used glue on the foam tape to wiggle it a little bit), and it was time to use my scissors to cut off the parts of the blooms that extended past the boundaries of the card, I wouldn’t have to cut through foam tape too.

Oh! I almost forgot! Before I started gluing everything down I ink blended a little Soft Lilac around the edges of the base piece then used Pinkfresh’s Argyle stencil to put some of my favorite glitter gel (Ranger’s Stickles Moon Dust) down. The Let’s Get Together Soon sentiment came from the equally beautiful Dahlia Bunch stamp set. With that glitter in the background and all of the colorful flowers I decided bling would have just been too much. So, I was done.

I hope that some of these design choices have inspired you to make something new today. Thanks so much for coming by!
