Pinkfresh Studio - His Promises are Yes & Amen

March 31, 2018

Happy Saturday, blog friends! I hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend so far. I've got a pretty little card to share with you today, using some Pinkfresh Studio stamps & dies that happen we to have an amazing promotion on this weekend!
Through tomorrow night (11:59pm CST), you can get 25% off Bloom & Grow stamps and dies when you purchase both! Just add both to your cart, and use the promo code BLOOM25OFF upon checkout. This is such a lovely stamp set, and while faith based, it includes many sentiments that could be used for other purposes.

Speaking of sales, I wanted to also mention that Simon Says Stamp is having a weekend sale on all Ranger branded products! {What?!!  My faves!!}
Now is a great time to pick up the Distress Oxide inks you might be coveting, add some Alcohol Ink colors to your collection, or some new Embossing Powder colors! I've used quite a few Ranger products on my card for today, and they will all be linked below if you are looking to recreate it.

Alright - done with the sale info, and now let's get to my card! With Easter being tomorrow, I really wanted to focus on the sentiment from the stamp set that says, "His Promises are Yes & Amen". Isn't that just beautiful? It truly ministers to my heart & soul.

Concord & 9th - Rainbow Birthday

March 20, 2018

Happy Tuesday, blog friends! I hope the start of your week has been fabulous! I've been super busy behind the scenes at Pinkfresh Studio lately, and we have so much coming up in the near future that you are going to LOVE! But, I've also been trying to maintain some balance, and keep creating with all of my other products as well.

That is where today's card comes in. There is an awesome sketch challenge going on at Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog - check it out!

It prompted me to break out some of my favorite C9 stamps & dies, and create this lovely rainbow themed birthday card for today's post!

So Lucky - Love Cards

March 17, 2018

Happy St. Patty's Day, blog friends! Are you having a fun weekend so far? We had some friends over last night, but not for anything Irish themed - just for fun! :) Tonight Josh is making bangers & mash with onion gravy - so there is our holiday spirit!

There are also a lot of crafty sales this weekend in celebration of the holiday! First up, at Pinkfresh Studio we are offering 17% off the Word Series collection - just use the code STPATTY17OFF. I used a couple of sentiments from this series on my cards today - and I just LOVE this stamp series. The greatest thing about Pinkfresh are all the amazing heartfelt sentiments that are included in all of our stamp sets. This is a GREAT time to add these stamps to your collection!

Inspired By - Easter Wishes

March 15, 2018

Hey there, blog friends! I hope that you've had a great week so far! Today my crafting friend, Laurel, asked me to be a guest at the Inspired By Challenge blog! I had the day available on my schedule, so I was able to say yes. I think you are going to love this week's inspiration photo!

I just love the soft colors, and that while Easter themed with a bunny, it isn't overly cutesy.

I broke out some older WPlus9 stamps & dies for my card today, which has been one of my favorite things to do lately. There are so many releases every single month, and while I love working with all the new products...sometimes it is really nice to use items that haven't seen a lot of love lately! Here is what I created using the Inspired By #11 challenge, and WPlus9 goodies.

MFT Stamps - You're Like a Sister to Me

March 12, 2018

Happy Monday, blog friends! I hope the start to your week has been a good one! My hubby has been on a business trip for a few days, so today he caught an early flight so he could get home sooner. Such a nice treat, considering I didn't think I'd be picking him up until this evening!

Now on to some crafty stuff - did you know that MFT Stamps is having a 2 day sale on their clear stamps?
 It's a great time to grab some sets that you've had your eye on at a great deal! 

I actually took advantage of a sale like this from MFT right before Layton was born, and needless to say...I never ended up getting to use those stamp sets. So today, I broke one of them out for my card. It is a sentiment set called "True Friends", which has already been discontinued from MFT, but I paired it with the newer "Painted Flowers" to freshen it up! {Seriously - one of my favorite things to do. I think it stems from the fact that I didn't have a chance to use my products during my pregnancies & subsequent losses.} I combined the most current MFT sketch & color challenges to create my card (linked below) - check it out!

It works perfectly with many of the new scrapbooking collections we've recently released, plus many of our newest stamps & dies!

The challenge is open to all paper crafters, including scrapbookers & cardmakers. The only rules are to use the color inspiration & at least one Pinkfresh Studio product - old & new! If you don't have any Pinkfresh Studio products, I suggest picking up some of our newest stamps & dies, or take a look at the deeply discounted Sale items!
