Pinkfresh Studio July 2023 Stamp, Die, and Stencil Release

Hi guys! Welcome to your next stop on the Pinkfresh Studio July 2023 Stamp, Die, and Stencil Release blog hop! I’ve got a fun summery card to share, made with Pinkfresh’s new Thanks for Being There stamp, stencil, and die. Not only does this stamp set have a lovely floral image (I can think of so many fun ways to color that in!), but it also has beautiful script-y sentiments, with three coordinating sentiment dies included in the die set.

I started with my blue and white checkered panel first. I white heat embossed with the previously released Dainty Plaid stamp for the crisis crossing lines then used the Dainty Plaid stencil and Summer Shower for my topping panel. I rounded the corners with a Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper and set it aside.

For that pretty flower cluster, I stamped the image on some white heavyweight cardstock using a light gray ink. Then I used the Thanks for Being There stencil set to color everything in. I used Metropolis ink in the center for the big bloom, then went over some circles with a black Sharpie. I used Sweet Mustard on the petals in the middle of the bloom, and then I used Coral Reef at the ends of the petals blending it towards the center with a light hand, then with a more concentrated application at the scalloped tips of the petals. For the smaller bloom, I tried to keep the yellow and green inks, Lemon Whip and Grassy Knoll, light in the center, then I applied Ballet Slipper on the petals, again keeping it very light the closer my brush got to the center, where it would meet up with the yellow/green. Then I added a bit of Sparkling Rose at the very tips. I used a colored pencil to add just a little additional detail, some shadowing for the petals. When I was done coloring everything in, I stamped over it again with Detail Black, then die-cut it out and set it aside.

I used the Folk Edge Circles die set with white and silver cardstock. I layered them together using fun foam because I like the drop shadows that adding dimension brings to a project. They were centered on the blue and white plaid panel. I used foam tape to adhere the flower cluster to the circle. And the sentiment was popped up with foam tape too. I used another new release to add some interest behind the sentiment and flowers, the Fall Leaf die.

I added some matte silver pearls and was done. I hope some of these design choices have inspired you to make something new today. Thanks so much for coming by!
