Welcome friends! I’m thrilled to be joining Pinkfresh Studio in a blog hop celebrating their December 2021 release. It’s always a pleasure to create with their products. They make it so effortless to create beautiful cards!
I have lots of cards and pictures to share so I hope you’ll stick around with me to the end where I’ll be talking about a GIVEAWAY!!
I’m starting with this unique design which was honestly way out of my comfort zone but I was so intrigued by it. This is the Built On Dreams stamp, stencil and die.
The stencil creates a design in the shape of a house! There is an outline of a house you can stamp but I opted to just use the die to cut out the image.
I mean, seriously, how adorable!
I layered up the heat embossing of the large sentiment and die cut out as well. Layering up your heat embossing looks amazing! Before adding the die cut sentiment, I am stamping a smaller sentiment right onto the front of the card with black ink.
To turn this into a card, I trimmed down a piece of white cardstock measuring 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ and folded in half. Then I added the top flap to the back of my house. It’s just the cutest little notecard!
Stands up great too! I finished it off with a few of the Metallic Gold Pearls.
Next we have the Citrus Bloom stencil and die set. For this one, I opted to just use the layering stencil with some vibrant colors.
Some of the colors I used include Lemon Whip, Marigold, Apricot, Persimmon, Aquamarine, Tidal Pond, Candy Violet, Regal Kiss and Black.
I added a panel with a bit of stitching using the Blanket Stitched Rectangles.
I pulled out a sentiment that I had previously foiled and keep in a drawer using the Perfect Sentiments Hot Foil Plate in black foil.
This next one I was really excited to try! This is the In The Meadow Washi tape and coordinating die. You attach the washi strip onto white cardstock and then line up the coordinating die. So quick and easy!
Actually, so easy that I quickly foiled the Heart Grid Hot Foil Plate in Blush foil to add my flowers to.
Once again, I paired it with a sentiment from the Perfect Sentiments hot foil plate and a Blanket Stitched Circle.
This next card using the same design, In The Meadow, but in stamp and stencil format.
I stenciled the images on Lemon Whip, Sweet Mustard, Sky Blue and Summer Shower.
I lined up the stamp image over my stenciled background and stamped in black ink.
Now, I’m not sure if this was completely my error or the image isn’t supposed to stamp exactly but my lines ended up skewed a little and you know what ….? I loved it!!
I didn’t even die cut the panel out. I left it all as-is and just trimmed the panel down with a Mini Slimline die.
One more card to share and it is using this gorgeous Lush Vines hot foil plate. Gosh , the possibilities with this one! Took me a while to settle on an idea.
I first started by foiling it on white cardstock with Champagne glimmer foil.
Next, I ink blended a rainbow of colors including Coral Reef, Lemon Whip, Apricot, Fresh Pear, Sky Blue and Soft Lilac. I went very light handed so I’m getting the lightest application of color with my blending brushes.
I finished it off with this large Thank You So Much hot foil plate. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and also cute 3 more to layer together for dimension.
Whew! Thanks for sticking with me. As you can see, I absolutely love hot foiling!
