Welcome everyone! I’m excited to be joining in the Pink Fresh Studio April Release Blog Hop. I have tons of inspiration to share with you today so be sure to stick around.
I also have a video featuring the Beautiful Blooms die and Abstract Builder stamp set. I’ll be creating a background using Distress Oxide Sprays. You can view that video down below or HERE on my Youtube Channel.
For my first card, I featuring the Beautiful Bloom die. This is a beautiful intricate die that is taking center stage on my card. I created a background using Distress Oxide Sprays in Mermaid Lagoon and Picked Raspberry on Canson Watercolor card stock.
I also sprayed the background with Glimmer Dust Iridescent spray for some sparkle.
My die cut is layered 3 times from white card stock for dimension. I used a little tip from Cathy Zielske and attached my die cut layers with E6000 liquid adhesive spray. This stuff is working great!
The sentiment is from the Abstract Builder stamp set which is also a part of the new release. I stamped it onto Black card stock with Gina K Designs Embossing Ink and applied Alabaster embossing powder. Once trimmed down I added to the front of my card with foam tape.
My next card is very clean and simple and would be great for mass producing. For this card , I used the paint swipes from the Abstract Builder. I stamped them in Passionate Pink, Tangerine Twist and Wild Dandelion.
Next we have the Partial Cut Bouquet & Bow. I die cut this onto Neenah White card stock 80lb and the bow I die cut from Lovely Lavender card stock. To add a little more color, I used a green copic markers and colored in my stems.
The card below is featuring the gorgeous set Just A Little Lovely. This has an amazing floral image on it with some beautiful sentiments. I stamped my image onto Neenah Solar White card stock with copic friendly ink. Then colored with copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut it out.
For my panel, I used Bristol Smooth card stock and ink blended Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide inks. Then mixed Perfect Pearls with some water and flicked onto my background.
Once my panel was dry, I attached to a white panel and adhered to an A2 size notecard made from Fog card stock. I popped up my floral image with foam tape and add the sentiment which was heat embossed in white onto Black card stock.
Next I’m featuring the Lovely Frames die. I used the same Distress Oxide Inks for my background as I did in the previous card which was Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserves.
I die cut the Lovely Frames from white card stock and attached to my card front. I think it makes such an amazing background!
This next card is using Lacey Floral Border. I die cut it six times from white card stock and layered each one 3 times for dimension. Then added to an alcohol ink background.
Here’s a look at all of my cards I created for the release. Thank you to Pink Fresh Studio for inviting me to join this month. Truly amazing products!

Oh wow, what a fabulous collection of cards! I’m a little surprised at the depth of color you got with the oxide sprays, but it’s nice to know that one can achieve that. You do lots of beautiful work with the white die cuts, too. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas!
So so many cards! Where to start! It always amazes me when I see such a vast style and techniques in a single post! Such diverse and great talent you have, Mandy! My favourite is the simple hello card, I don’t know what it is, but it just stands out to me. I also really like how you used all those frames to create such a cool background!
So many great cards!
Awesome, all the cards look great.
