Pinkfresh Studio | May 2023 Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

May 22, 2023

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Pinkfresh May 2023 Release Blog Hop! Come hop along with us for a chance to win 1 of 10 $25 Pinkfresh Gift Cards! Simply leave a comment to enter! Scroll down to the bottom of this post for the entire blog hop list.

I’ve created 3 cards to share with you today using items from this gorgeous new release. They are all super simple to recreate! For my first card, I used the new The Magic Is In You Stencil + Die Sets along with the fun Terrarium Die Set.

** All product links can be found at the bottom of this post. Affiliated links used where applicable at no extra cost to you. **

To create my scene above, I first used The Magic Is In You Stencil Set along with some Pinkfresh Inks to create my images. This is super easy to do! I added some areas of darker ink to easily add some depth and shading. Once I was finished with this, I used The Magic Is In You Die Set to cut them out. I then added them to my terrarium piece that I had first ink blended onto a piece of smooth white card stock with some Seaside and and Summer Shower Inks. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from the new Delicate Foliage Stamp Set and cut it out using the coordinating Delicate Foliage Die.

For my second card (below), I used the gorgeous foliage stamp from the Delicate Foliage Stamp Set and stamped it onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored the leaves with Copic Markers (G000, G00, BG34, BG18). Next, I used the coordinating Delicate Foliage Stencil Set to ink blend some extra foliage pieces. For this part, I used Aquamarine and Tidal Pool Pinkfresh Inks. Once I was finished inking my foliage, I then used the Delicate Foliage Die to easily cut this piece out.

For my card background, I trimmed a piece of light teal card stock to 4″ x 5.25″ and blended it with some Aquamarine and Ocean Breeze Pinkfresh Inks. I started with my darker color in the lower right hand corner and worked my way toward the top left hand corner with my lighter color.

Next, I trimmed off any harsh ink stains on the edges of my ink-blended panel by trimming this piece down to 3.75″ x 5″. I stamped my sentiment to this piece from the Delicate Foliage Stamp Set with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then added my foliage with some 3D foam adhesive tape for a pop of dimension. I trimmed off any pieces of the foliage that were overlapping the edges of my panel and then added this entire piece to my 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base.

For my last card, I combined a mushroom from The Magic Is In You Set along with the new Summer Blooms Stencil and Die Sets. Again, all of my images in this card are simply created by using ink blending along with the Summer Blooms Stencil Set. I placed my images onto an ink-blended background of Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink.

My sentiment came from the Delicate Foliage Stamp Set. Once again, I used some 3D foam adhesive tape to add my images to my card front with some extra dimension.
