Today I’m honored to join Pinkfresh Studio April Essentials Release Blog Hop!
This blog hop is celebrating the release of new essential dies. You can find the full list of participants below, along with another info about prizes and special promotions.
I made tree projects using some of the new dies and Pinkfresh Studio stamps.
FUN TRAIN RIDE
For my first card I used the Braided Ovals Die Set.
The set has two dies which cut fancy ovals. And which can be nested, so for the bigger one you can create both an oval and oval frame. I did the second for my card by die-cutting the bigger oval out of a white cardstock first and then die-cutting the smaller one out of it to make the frame.
I made a card base out of a Robin’s Egg Cardstock and adhered the frame onto it. Followed by foam mounting the elements on top.
Lastly I stamped the sentiment onto a white stripe and popped it onto the card.
FATHER’S DAY TAG
Me next project is Father’s Day Tag. To make it I used the new Classic Tags with Fillable Elements Die Set. This set is AMAZING! You can make almost an infinite amount of tags of different designs using this set.
I decided to make a masculine project using this set. First I die-cut a tag out of a kraft paper. Then I added white and blue splatters onto it.
I also die-cut the same tag out of a navy and white cardstock. I used one fillable element to die-cut a piece out of the nave tag. Which I then trim to make a stripe and adhered onto my tag. I trimmed to stripes out of the white tag, adhered one in the top part of and popped another in the bottom part.
To make the word DAD I used the Adore Alpha Die Set.
For my last card I used the new Inverted Stitched Scallop Circle Die Set to die-cut the black circle frame for my card.
I made a panel out of a white cardstock and blended Sapphire Distress Ink in the top part of it (using the mentioned die negative die-cut as a mask). I added water splatter onto the ink blending, blotted it and then added white paint splatters on top.
I stamped the rest of the background using stamps from the Birds and Bows Stamp Set using Navy Ink. Using the same set I stamped the birdie and branch and fussy cut them. I also colored the bird in yellow.
For other elements of the card I used the Escape The Ordinary Stamp Set. I stamped stars, clouds, moon and then fussy cut them. I colored the moon and adhered all the elements onto the panel.
Lastly I tied a black twine around the panel and foam mounted it onto a white card base.
