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

Hello and welcome everyone! I am super excited to join Pinkfresh Studio for their Holiday Stamp, Stencil, Die, and Hot Foil Release. You can check out the new release HERE!

My post today is part of a blog hop with giveaway - stay tuned for the details at the end of this post.



For the full supply list, scroll down to the thumbnails at the end of this post.

I have four cards to share with you. My first card is a shaker card featuring Happy Holidays Circle Frame stamp, dies and stencils. I really love the layering stencil as it makes it so easy to color in the images.


I started by taking a mint cardstock mat layer. I sponged the inks from Garden Stroll ink pads to create an ombre layer. Stamp the image using black ink. Add white ink through the stencil 1. add the Evergreen ink using the stencil 3. I then added white pigment ink, let it dry and add Candy Apple ink through the stencil 2. Die-cut the image. Adhere the negative part of the circle  and the edges to a white cardbase. 
Now die-cut white cardstock three times using the same die.
Adhere acetate behind the die-cut circle opening. Now adhere all the 3 white layers. This creates a well to add glitter and then close the well using another piece of acetate.
    Adhere this to the card. 
I then stamped the image once more, add color using stencil. Fussy cut top two twigs and adhere to the shaker on top right for added interest.


My second card features the Poinsettia stamp, dies. Sentiments from Thrill of Hope and  Happy Holidays Circle Frame stamp and Leafy Squares stencil. I went for a no-line coloring for this card so I stamped the image in Ballet Slipper ink. I colored it using daniel smith watercolors and die-cut using coordinating dies

I then took a deep red cardstock, stamped the Happy Holidays from Thrill of Hope stamp using black ink. Cut a mat layer, sponge red and pink inks lightly. Add texture paste through the leafy squares stencil. Adhere the image ,flick gold paint splatters. Adhere the sentiment and backed it with some gold floss.


The third card features the Poinsettia washi, dies. Sentiments from Thrill of Hope and the Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles.
I went for a soft look on this card so I adhered the washi to vellum and die-cut it using the co-ordinating dies. I really like this pretty washi with gold accents.

I stamped the sentiments onto white cardstock using versamark ink and heat embossed using WOW! metallic gold embossing powder. I sponged mix of pink and red inks lightly behind the floral cluster. To create the clusters, I simply played with all the washi die-cut images till I liked the result.


I kept my last card CAS to easily mass produce and have a bunch of last minute quick Christmas cards. It features the Thrill of Hope Wreath layering stencil. I sponged various inks through the stencils onto white mat layer, these make it so easy to create pretty wreaths. I then sponged Sky Blue ink to the edges and then sponged the same ink through the leafy squares stencils to add some more texture.

I heat embossed the sentiment using the Happy Holidays Circle Frame stamp. Die-cut and adhere to the mat layer.Flick gold splatters for more shine and texture.

Sunny Studio - Inside Tunnel Card

Hello everyone, I am on the Sunny Studio blog featuring the Stitched Rectangle dies with an inside tunnel card. This card went through a lot of changes and is very special to me because as soon as I started creating it, my daughter called and told me she got her first job as an assistant doctor as soon as she finishes her medicine next year. I feel so proud, thus this card is for her and Sunny Studio has perfect sentiments to express.

I started by stamping and embossing the florals onto watercolor paper from the Pink Peonies stamps. I colored them by sprinkling the nuvo shimmer powder shaded lilac. Die-cut using the coordinating dies.

Next, I die-cut the grey frame using two of the rectangle dies from the Stitched Rectangle dies.

Die-cut a cloud stencil by using the cloud from the Slimline Nature Border dies. Sponge onto the white layer for the card front and also on the inside panel.

For the inside cardbase I used the tutorial by Jennifer McGuire HERE. I stamped the word CONGRATS from the Everything's Rosy stamp and stamped it onto the banner from the Stitched Rectangle dies.

 

Die-cut the fence from the Picket Fence dies. Sponge a little mowed lawn distress oxide ink.

Stamp the sun from Balloon Rides stamp, color and die-cut using the coordinating dies.

Stamp the sentiment onto the front panel from the Inside Greetings - Birthday

Assemble everything together,

Stamp the balloon from the Floating By stamp, color and die-cut using the coordinating dies. Assemble everything together.

Thank you for dropping by! Have a nice day :)

Sunny Studio - Side Step Fold Card

Hello Everyone! Today I have a fun fold card featuring the Picket Fence die at Sunny Studio Blog. I felt this kind of card was perfect to showcase this beautiful die and how it matches perfectly with the previously released products.


To start, I made the base of my side step card. Take a 5.5 by 8.5 inch white cardstock. Mark 2.5 inch from the left edge, along the length. Now on the 3 inch side, score at 6.25, 4.25, 3.25, 2.25 and 1.25 inches. Cut vertically along the marked line from the 6.25 score point to 1.25 score point. Fold the card onto the score lines and the card base is ready.

Sponge the sky on the left longer panel using pinks and yellow inks. Die-cut the fence three times with white cardstock, using the Picket Fence die. Die-cut the grass from the Gingham Jewel Tone pattern paper using the same die.

Emboss a white scrap using the Woodgrain embossing folder. Sponge vintage photo, fossilized amber and ground espresso distress inks. Cut using a pair of scissors to create the tree trunk.

Stamp images, color using copics and die-cut using coordinating dies.

Fairies, Butterfly, Flowers, Mushroom House: Garden Fairy Stamp and coordinating dies

Gnome, Mushroom: Home Sweet Gnome stamp and dies

Tree Leaves: Outback Critters stamp and dies

Mountains: Country Scenes Stamp and dies

Adhere all the dies and images as per the card photo and the card is ready. To finish, add some sparkles to the fairy wings, dots to the gnome hat and some clear sparkle pen to some flowers, fairy dress.

Hope you enjoyed the card. If you get inspired, don't forget to tag us on instagram @sunnystudiostamps. We would love to see your beautiful creations. Thanks for dropping by!
