Pinkfresh Studio Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio September Release bloghop. 


Love love love this release as it has stamps and dies to create for every occasion including Christmas. I am sure everyone has already going to start making Christmas cards soon :). You might have come here from the wonderfully talented Elena Roussakis's blog. 
It's gonna be a long post so please bear with me :)

Card 1
I used the "Houseplants" Die. This is such a pretty die, which cuts beautifully. I die-cut the plants using watercolor paper. Then I sponged some distress inks and flicked some gold ink. The result really gave me a smile, hence I stamped the sentiment from the "Playful Animal Friends 1" stamp set. Finally to ground the image I used a stripe of paper from the "Escape the Ordinary" paper pad.


Card 2: Since I really loved this "Houseplants"die, I created another card and instead of adding gold flick, I simply added a little bit of Clear Sparkle Embossing powder. Love love the result. It looks pretty and delicate.


Card 3: Since I took out the "Playful Animal Friends 1" stamp set, I looked at the "Playful Animal Friends 2" stamp set too AND I have to say these two are must have sets for all the fun, whimsical, cute cardlover's :) I was in the CAS cardmaking mode :) I made a few cards using these sets but those are for the next time lol


Card 4: Finally, I decided to do some no-line coloring and this Santa image from " Simple Joy" stamp set was just perfect. There is also a Coordinating "Simple Joy" die to make die-cutting so easy! I like how he is reading all the letters so seriously :) Maybe I will also get a gift or two from him...lol. I used some patterned papers from the "December Days" paper pad. I also cut out a few elements from the same paper pad to add to my scene.
