Pinkfresh Essentials Release and Giveaways!

Hi everybody! I hope your day is going well. Today I've got a couple of fun projects to share with you using the new Essentials Dies released today from Pinkfresh Studios. The release is amazing and I'm so excited I get to join in the fun!

For my first card I used the new Slim Stitches die (check out the stitched pattern-it's so beautiful!) for the background of my card. Just FYI, there is also a Stitches die for A2 sized cards so if slimline cards aren't your thing, Pinkfresh has you covered! I also used the new Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles Dies to create a fun stitched border out of holographic paper for my card.

Next, I watercolored the image from the Take Pride stamp set and used that as the focal point for my card.

I finished my card off with a sentiment from the Just Because stamp set and a few gems for some glitz.

For my second card I used the new Nested Chevron Die. I started my card off by using the die to cut some white cardstock. Then, I ink blended the chunky pieces (there are slim pieces too which I didn't use) in 80's colors. I added foam adhesive to the backs and put the pieces back into the die so that they would be perfectly spaced.

Then, I laid a piece of black cardstock on top of the foam adhesive (chevron pieces still placed face down in die) to stick all of the pieces to my black background. After that I splattered my whole card with sparkle and white metallic paint to give it a sparkly, splattered, grungy look. I stamped a sentiment from the Simply Sentiments-Hello stamp set onto gray cardstock, cut it into a strip and added it with foam adhesive. The final touch was to add some bubbles, gems, rhintestones and stars.
