Pinkfresh Studio April 2023 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

Hi everyone! Welcome to your next stop on Pinkfresh Studio’s April 2023 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release blog hop! This release is loaded with celebratory designs, Ribbons, Balloons, Wrap Around Elements, and Rosettes! And a super useful, Basic Banners Celebrate sentiments stamp and die sets, and more. Not to mention the new elegant Dual Tip Embellishment Tool.

But the projects that I’m sharing today were made with the sweet With Love stamp, stencil, and die sets. I think this design is so darling, and I can’t wait to share a couple of ways it can be used. I reply to all comments, so if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them!

I started my first project by stamping all three images (one stamp to coordinate with the one die more easily) onto white cardstock with a light gray ink color. Then I used the accompanying four stencil-set to color everything in. I used Soft Lilac, Lavender, and Regal Kiss for the larger bloom and Emerald City and Evergreen inks for those leaves. For the small cluster of flowers, I used Peach Fuzz and Clementine. And the leafy stem was colored in with Grassy Knoll and Olive; then I dabbed at the leaves with my blending brush and Warm Buff ink (I placed my blender brush on part of the leaf, through the stencil, at an angle and held it there for a short count). It speckled the leaves, which I liked, but it’s hard to see in the photos, so next time, I’ll be adventurous and try it with a bolder ink color.

I put the colored image back into my stamping platform and used Detail Black to stamp over the flowers to bring out more detail, then I die-cut them out and set them aside.

I pulled out Pinkfresh’s Dainty Plaid (Again. Because I love it.), stamped onto a piece of cardstock, and stenciled it with gray ink. I cut it down a little bit, then adhered it to a panel of white cardstock to finish trimming it. Then I masked off the plaid to splatter black paint to back the flowers. I taped that panel to silver specialty paper and adhered them both to a pink cardbase.

I used the new Wrap Around Elements die on the topping panel. Then I popped up the flowers with some foam tape and finished with a sprinkle of matte silver Metallic Pearls.

I had to make notecards with this adorable stamp set; the flower elements and those dainty, sweet sentiments are perfect for notecard dimensions. Google says that notecards are typically 3 X 5 inches, but mine were 3 X 4 1/2 inches. If you’re willing to make the envelope, it can be any size you like.

Once again, I stamped, colored, and die-cut everything out. I chose the size I wanted my note cards to be based on the size of my die-cut flowers. Then I had some fun picking through my stash of specialty papers to mix and match them onto my notecard panels; they were either adhered on by tape, glue, or foam adhesive. I adore those dainty sentiments and ended up stamping them last. I decided not to add bling, and I was done.

Thank you so much for stopping by; I hope some of my design choices have inspired you to make something new today!
