Pinkfresh Studio August Release Blog Hop


Hello friends! Today I have the pleasure of joining the Pinkfresh Studio team and guests for a blog hop celebrating their August release.  I received some pretty stamps and dies to create with and have made two cards to share with you, but first let's take care of some blog hop business.  

You should be arriving from Lea Lawson's blog and your next stop will be Norine Borys' blog

Giveaways
Pinkfresh Studio will be giving away the full 2019 August release on the Pinkfresh Studio blog and their Instagram feed.  In addition, you can win a $25 gift card to the Pinkfresh Studio shop by leaving a comment below.  Winners will be posted to this GIVEAWAY PAGE on Monday, September 2nd. 

Now on to the cards I've made :)


This first card features a large die cut greeting that I've framed and placed over a collage of beautiful stamped floral images.  To create the letters that spell the word hello I used the lower case Kelly Alpha die set. I then used a die from Pretty Frames to cut out a decorative label shape for the greeting. 


I stamped out a bunch of flowers and foliage from the Lovely Blossoms stamp set and then die cut with the coordinating dies. I arranged the flowers and foliage around the outer area of my card front. I then adhered the greeting panel overtop with dimensional foam tape and added a sprinkling of Nuvo Dream Drops amongst the flowers. 


For the second card I used the Modern Blooms die to create a pretty backdrop for the inspiring sentiment.  I die cut the Modern Blooms design twice from heavy weight white card stock and then adhered them together.  I adhered this thick die cut to a panel of card stock and used Nuvo Jewel Drops (Keylime & Honeysuckle) to fill in the spaces of the roses and foliage. This created a stained glass look.  


I love the unique sentiments in the new No One Compares To You stamp set.  I chose my favorite and heat embossed it onto some vellum.  I used Rose Gold embossing powder from WOW.  I then adhered the vellum overtop the Modern Blooms piece by using tiny glue dots. To embellish the card, I tied a piece of bakers twine around the left side of the card front and added just a few Nuvo Crystal Pure Sheen Gemstones.
