Pinkfresh Studio - Words with Botanicals


Happy Saturday, blog friends! I hope that you are having a lovely weekend so far! I've got a somewhat long post for you featuring some cards using the words with Botanicals dies from Pinkfresh Studio.

All stand alone dies (with the exception of anything release in July 2018) are 25% off this weekend using the code SA25OFFDIES. The code is valid through Sunday, August 5th at 11:59pm CST. I'm a HUGE fan of stand alone dies, so I wanted to share the savings with you. Here are links to all of the dies that are 25% off this weekend:

I created these cards for the Pinkfresh Studio website back when these dies released, but realized that I never blogged them. So, I thought I would share them today!

 I am going to go in alphabetical order, so up first is my card using the Hello with Botanicals diecuts. I channeled my past scrapbooking style, and combined this awesome die set with the Pinkfresh Studio Let Your Heart Decide paper collection.

To start, I mounted a block of pink patterned paper cut slightly smaller to a white A2 card base. I diecut the word hello from a patterned paper block that was cut slightly smaller than an A2 card. I also diecut the botanicals from matching patterned papers. Then I adhered the diecut paper block to the card front with foam adhesive.

I used a cardstock sticker for the second part of the sentiment, and adhered it to the front with foam dots. Then I adhered the diecut botanicals around it, and finished accenting the card with a tassel bow, wood button and enamel dots!
 
Up next is my card using the Love with Botanicals diecut set. I went back to my stamp style for this one, and blended a background with some of my fave oxide inks! Initially this was going to be a rainbow, but I ran out of room for the purple...but I actually think it looks better this way!

 To start I blended the background with oxide inks in the following colors: Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron & Peacock Feathers. Then I spritzed it down with some shimmer spray, and flicked gold paint splatters to it. While it dried, I diecut the word LOVE from a block of white cardstock. Then I diecut the botanicals from the ink blended background, keeping in mind where it would peek through under the word love.

Then I layered both blocks to an aqua A2 card base with foam adhesive. I stamped & heat embossed the rest of the sentiment in gold to a strip of vellum, and adhered it across the middle. Then I layered the botanical diecuts to it, and accented with my signature jewels tucked here & there!

And finally I created this one using the Smile with Botanicals diecut set, and paired it with a sentiment from the Let's Flamingle stamp set.

To start, I diecut the word smile from a white cardstock block cut slighty smaller than an A2 card. Then I adhered it over top of a rainbow bling sticker sheet to the front of a black A2 card base. And because I always get asked - no, I did not arrange all of the jewels. This is one big sheet of rhinestones arranged in rainbow order. I just love the look of the jewels peeking out from behind the letters, and I do this technique a lot with word dies!

Next I diecut the botanicals from gold glitter paper. Then I stamped the sentiment to a white cardstock strip in black & gold inks, then cut a banner edge to the left side. I adhered it to the card front with some foam dots, then tucked the botanicals in here & there. Finally, I added a small strip of rainbow jewels tucked under the bottom of the sentiment strip.

I hope you liked those three cards using the words with botanicals dies from Pinkfresh Studio! Be sure to head on over & shop the Weekend Promo section before it ends!

I hang out on Instagram a lot, and share my work in progress in my stories...along with REALLY cute photos of my dogs! :) Plus, I just started a YouTube channel, and while there are only a few videos right now...I will be adding new content consistently!
 
Have a wonderful rest of your Saturday!

  10. What a really cool way to use the negative space from your letter dies. I like the placement of the letters and how the patterned paper pops up under that white.

    Thank you for joining us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week!
