Pinkfresh Studio - Grateful for your Kindness

November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving, blog friends! I hope that you are having a lovely day whether you celebrate Thanksgiving today or not. I wanted to drop by and just tell you that I am super grateful for YOU, your comments and the support you give me here in my little crafty world. I truly appreciate it!

I'm taking a quick break from my day to pop in and share this Thanksgiving themed Thank You card with you featuring the lovely Bloom stamp set from Pinkfresh Studio. I adore this stamp set, with it's clean & graphic sentiments and daintily drawn's just plain lovely.

To start this card, I stamped & heat embossed the florals to heavyweight white cardstock in Gilded embossing powder. I watercolored them using Distress Inks in the following colors: wild honey, victorian velvet, spun sugar, peeled paint & crushed olive. Then I set the entire panel aside to let the watercolor dry.

Next I stamped & heat embossed the sentiment to the middle of a heavyweight white cardstock panel cut slightly smaller than A2 size, using the coordinating dies as a guide for the placement. I embossed the word GRATEFUL in matching Gilded embossing powder, and the second part of the sentiment is stamped in onyx black Versafine.

By then the watercolor was dry, so I cut the blooms out with their coordinating dies, then layered them to the top and the bottom of the sentiment using foam tape. Then I mounted the entire cardstock panel to the front of a dark pink A2 cardbase. This is an older sheet of Bazzill cardstock that I've had in my stash for awhile, so I don't know the exact shade. But you can substitute it for anything you might already have!

Next I added gold paint splatter to the front of the card. I forgot to cover the sides of my card, which I normally do. Thanfully, the cardstock color is dark enough that the little tiny splatters that did get on it aren't super noticeable. And hey - that just makes it look even more handmade. :)

Finally, I accented here & there with some Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles (these are SO fun, BTW. I have a feeling I will use these more in the near future!). And lastly, I added some glitter to the blooms using my Midas Touch Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen.

Here is an "extra" card for you! The only differences are that I did not heat emboss the blooms, and I colored them in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I also used black paint splatter in place of gold. Other than that - the steps are exactly the same!

That is all I have for you today, my friends! Before you move along with your day, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I hang out on Instagram a lot, and share my work in progress in my stories...along with REALLY cute photos of my dogs! :) And of course, I would love for you to subscribe to my YouTube Channel. I had to take a break from videos when getting sick, because I sounded TERRIBLE. Lol! But, now that my voice is mostly back to normal...I resuming video work again! :)

I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your Thursday & Thanksgiving!
