Pinkfresh Studios: Slimline Release and Giveaway!

Hello everybody and happy Friday! Today I'm joining in the fun of Pinkfresh Studio's new slimline stamp, die and stencil release! There are so many amazing new products and we've got a blog hop to share crafty inspiration and we've got multiple giveaways and some other great perks too (so make sure you check out the end of my blog post).

One of the really cool things about this release is that some of the products were created in trios! You can buy a stamp, die and stencil that are all designed to work together as a product suite. My first card was made using products from one of these trios. I stamped the Incredibly Grateful stamp set in black ink onto watercolor paper. I watercolored it and then used the large coordinating die to cut the whole thing out (there is a die that cuts the inside out too but I didn't use it on this card). To add some depth to the inside of the frame I used some gray copic markers to added shadows.

After stamping a sentiment from the Incredibly Grateful set I put that piece aside for a minute. Next, I used the Slim Diagonal Stitched dies to cut a piece of white cardstock. I ink blended in a soft blue and then splattered it with a marker.

I used the Kelly Alpha lower case dies to cut "hey" out of some gold foil cardstock. This was such an easy and beautiful way to add to the sentiment and fill the space inside of the floral frame. I adhered the letters using glue dots. This gave them a little dimension and also made sure no foam tape would be visible through the cutouts in the letters. I layered the floral frame on top of the stitched die cut rectangle. All of that got glued to a slimline card base. The size I used for all of my cards today is 9" x 7.5" and scored at 3.25". This size works perfectly with many of the Pinkfresh Slimline Dies.

For my second card I used a different product suite. The stencil and die I used match the Floral Notes stamp set. I don't have the stamp set though and I was thrilled to see how well these stencils work on their own. The Floral Notes Stencils come in a three pack of layering stencils. I started with the largest images and ink blended using pink and purple. Next, I blended the leaves using two tones of green. It was so easy! I just used the lighter color of green first and then went over just part of the leaves with the darker green after that.

When I got to the third layer it was time to do the centers of the large flowers. Originally I had planned to use yellow embossing powder but when I opened up my drawer and saw this pink, sparkly glacier paste I had to use it. The pictures don't do it justice but this card sparkles like something else! I die cut the flowers  and set them aside.

I used the Slim Ornate Banner Die set to cut two pieces from white cardstock. The larger one I ink blended to match the pink from my flowers. The smaller one I ink blended in a blue green. When it was dry I stamped the sentiment which is from the You Are My Favorite stamp set, and then splattered the background first with water and then with my Glitter Gloss sparkle pen.

I adhered all of my layers together using lots of adhesive tape. The final touch was to add some gems and rhinestones in different colors and sizes.

For my last card I went really simple and I've gotta say that I love when making a simple card still yields a beautiful card! I used the new Argyle layering stencils (set of 2) to create this card. I started out with a piece of white cardstock cut out using the Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Dies. I ink blended the background in yellow and red which yielded and orangey/coral color on the darker side. Then I used the stencil with the large diamond cut outs to ink blend using Unicorn white pigment ink from Hero Arts. I started on the darker side and since my ink was still a little bit wet my sponge blender lifted some of the colored ink and transferred just the right amount to the yellow side. I love how the light diamonds look against a darker background.

The second stencil in this set has lines to complete the argyle look. I lined the "x" of the lines up with the centers of my diamonds and am happy with how that placement looks. I decided to heat emboss in gold so I pressed my Versamark ink pad repeatedly over the stencil to ink my background. Then I removed the stencil, poured on my embossing powder and heated it to melt it.

To finish my card off I added a "Hello" sentiment from the Essentials: Classic Word Die Set. The rest of the sentiment is from the You Are My Favorite stamp set. The final touch was adding a few gems.
