Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Cards Series - Day 2 + GIVEAWAY


Happy Tuesday, friends! Welcome to day 2 of my Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Card Series on my blog this week. I'm sorry if this post is a little late - I've come down with a really severe cold infection, and I had a last minute doctor's appointment to make sure it wasn't strep. Thankfully...it's not! So rest, fluids & cough medicine are in my future for the time being.

As I mentioned, I have one HUGE giveaway for the entire week. So, I will be giving you that info each day!

GIVEAWAY
This is over $300 in Pinkfresh Studio goodies - some that have been gently used, but all of it in perfect condition. The reason for so many items? I have a very small crafting area, and these have all recently retired from our stamp/die collection. My schedule doesn't really allow for using retired items, nor does my space allow for them. But these are all still really amazing items, and my need to save space is your gain!

How to win? All you have to do is leave a comment on my posts! Make sure you stop by each day this week after noon CST (that is when the posts will go live), and you will have more chances to win! Here are the links for previous days:


You can gain one extra entry by following me on Instagram, and/or subscribing to my YouTube channel. Leave one comment if you do either, or both. Please - only ONE extra comment. I will post the winner on my GIVEAWAY PAGE on Sunday, November 11th by 2pm CST.

This giveaway is open to all, BUT...if you are international I will ask that you pay for the additional shipping charges required. I will be sending this entire shipment in a flat rate Priority Mail box, and I am willing to pay what the shipping charge is in the US. By commenting as an Int'l friend, you are telling me that you are willing to pay for the extra shipping via PayPal. Thank you for understanding - Int'l shipping is very expensive, but I still wanted to keep this giveaway open to all. This is the only way I can make that happen. 

You might be asking - why not spread the wealth each day? Well, friends...shipping is expensive, even within the US. Plus my schedule is super busy, and it is just easier for me to pick one winner for it all. Feel free to share the love if you are the winner!

So how about we get to my card set today? Today I am using our Geo Leaf & Geo Floral background dies that aren't specifically meant for Christmas, but look a lot like snowflakes to me! I combined them with sentiments from the stamp set I used on my post yesterday, Squirrel Friends!

To start, I created an A2 card from white & black cardstocks. Then I mounted glittered paper blocks cut slightly smaller to the front of each card base using foam adhesive. Then I cut each background die from white cardstock three times, and layered together with a glue pen.

Then I stamped & heat embossed the sentiments to vellum in gold & silver glittered embossing powders. I trimmed them into strips, then added a banner edge to the right side of the silver embossed sentiment. I wrapped the gold embossed sentiment around the top of the Geo Leaf background, then adhered it to the black card front with mixed media adhesive. I wrapped the banner edged silver embossed sentiment to the left side of the Geo Floral background, and mounted it to the white card base. Finally, I accented with my signature jewels tucked here & there.

Here is a look at the card using the Geo Floral background die.

And here is the one using the Geo Leaf background die.
That is what I have for you today! You can shop for all of the Pinkfresh Studio Holidays Stamps & Dies here! But remember that much of our non-holiday product can be used for the holidays as well! Be sure to check back tomorrow at noon CST for day 3 of my Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Cards series! Have an awesome rest of your Tuesday!

Mine is full with stuff! LOL! I am so glad I checked out what you use for gem stones! I love using them, but I tend to use just silver or gold... yours are so pretty... and you get them at Michael's. That's where I get mine (most of the time), but I don't recall seeing the ones you use... now I have to go back and look more closely! :)
