Pinkfresh Studio Spring Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Spring Release Blog Hop. You are going to love the new release. It has GORGEOUS stamps and dies with a fresh and innovative look.


You must have come here from the sweet and talented Amy Tsuruta's blog. Sorry for a long post, get some coffee/tea...sit back and enjoy :)

For today, I decided to highlight the Floral Frame with a Swan stand alone die. It's such a detailed, versatile die. 

Card 1: Here, I went with exactly how the Floral Frame with a Swan stand alone die looks. I simply die-cut the floral panel, colored using some watercolors. I then added color to the swan (love the details on this) and assembled it onto the panel.The flowers are cut partially, which really give so much detail, dimension to this die. I then added some nuvo jewel drops to the flower center. I used the sentiment from another new set stamp set "Let's Flamingle". To finish the card, I used the pattern paper from the Be You 6 by 6 paper pad.


Look at all the dimension and subtle shine :)


Card 2:  This is another variation to the die. And I just want to share how easy it can be used with the elements from the older products. Here I used the same Floral Frame with a Swan die. I cut it once using black cardstock and once using watercolor paper. I then fussy cut the flowers from the watercolor paper, added watercolor and some gold flicks. I then adhered the flowers to the black panel. I then heat embossed the sentiment from another new stamp set "Aviary" using gold embossing powder. I then embossed a butterfly from one of the old release "Bloom & Grow" and adhered it to the panel. For the cardbase, I used pattern paper from A Case of Blahs paper pad.


Love the dimension and detail of this die.


For my 3rd and last card, I took a different way. I used the flowers from the Floral Frame with a Swan die and combined it with another new stand alone dies "Smile with Botanicals and Hello with Botanicals". The sentiment is again from "Let's Flamingle" stamp set.
