Hi and welcome to a super exciting blog post! Or rather, I’m super excited, as I’m guesting for Pinkfresh Studio this month for yet another FANTASTIC release!
There is, of course, an amazing lineup of crafters showcasing the new release, the full blog hop lineup can be found down below with the inlinkz link. You will no doubt be blown away, I always am!
There is a very generous giveaway, Pinkfresh is giving away the full release on the Pinkfresh Blog and their YouTube channel. There is also a $25 gift voucher up for grabs by leaving a comment on this post. Winners will be drawn randomly and announced on the Pinkfresh GIVEAWAY PAGE by May 6th. Make sure to check the page and claim your price within 2 weeks.
My package only arrived 26 hours ago, so I don’t have much to show, but I promise you I will have more posts and YouTube videos up as soon as I can. I have seen sneak peeks of the goodies and I can not wait to play with it all. I started with the Miss Your Smile and coordinating slim line stencil, because those big blooms were calling out to me.
I grabbed my Pinkfresh Inks and the swatches I had made, lots of Life Changing Blender Bushes and some panels of Bristol Smooth card stock, and went for it. The ink pads are 30% off until May 2nd, with the code INKPADS30 too!!
This one I finished off by stamping the Miss Your Smile outline in Black Hybrid ink, with the help of my MISTI, as well as a heat embossed sentiment from the Perfect Sentiment. I heat embossed it in gold rather than try my hand at the Hot Foil Plate, before using the coordinating die, seeing as I was under a bit of time pressure.
I tried another colour combination as I had a second panel ready, and why not, right? This one went in a much more coral, peachy colour combo. Like soft spring, sort of.
I had a bit of heat embossing hoopla, as I didn’t have time to let the panel dry properly. Even though I used my WOW! Heat Tool AND anti-static tool generously on it. The gold embossing powder I used ended up all over it, and at first I was mad about it, but then I decided to make it work for me.
I stamped up one of the sentiments from Miss Your Smile in Clementine (at least I think it was, could be Apricot) and I did add some gold splatters on both of the panels, as well as Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles on them. One in black card stock and one in a mint linen textured card stock I had in my stash.
I did make a rather jibber-jabber-happy YouTube Video for these too, and a third card!
Pinkfresh Studio is offering free US shipping on orders over $50 between April 29th until May 6th, so if you want to grab some of these goodies, now is the perfect time!
