Pinkfresh Studio August Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop

August 26, 2019

Happy Monday, friends! Today I am excited to share that our August stamp & die release is LIVE in the Pinkfresh Studio store. This release includes (3) 6x8 stamp sets and (3) 4x6 stamp sets, some with coordinating dies. It also includes (2) new alpha die sets, an uppercase & lowercase of the same style. And finally, there are (4) standalone dies.

I've got SO much to share with you in this post! We have an amazing blog hop line-up full of so much talent, it makes me smile! We've got GIVEAWAYS, 2 fantastic shopping promos and so much more!

Here is a look at all of the new products:


I will get to all the amazing things I mentioned at the end of my post, but how about we get to my cards first? I've used all the floral items in the new release to create my cards today, and focused on a really bright & cheery color palette. I imagine these in fall colors too, and will probably create them again!


For this card I used Inkon3 fadeout ink, and did some no line watercoloring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I am not a master at coloring, but I had SO much fun coloring this big image from the new Flower Garden stamp set. I don't really worry about realistic shading...I typically just chose three shades of the color I want - light, medium light & medium (because let's be real...I never pick the dark colors. Lol!), and then just color in an ombre fashion. Some of the discoloration was caused when I added shimmer with my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen....and I like the reaction! Once the coloring was finished, I also splattered the front with watered down titanium white acrylic paint.

I cut out the flower garden image with our Essentials: Stitched Rectangles, then mounted it to a coral colored A2 card base with foam adhesive. I diecut the Beautiful word (3) times: once from gold glitter paper and twice from heavyweight white cardstock, then stacked & adhered together. I stamped the first part of the sentiment in onyx black to white cardstock, then trimmed into a thin strip. I adhered the sentiment to the card front, then accented with the Essentials: Jewels Mix to finish.

I loved coloring the first image so much, that I did the same with the flowers from the Floral Vase stamp set. I stamped the vase with premium dye ink, but when I added some shimmer to it...it bled a little, giving it more of watercolor feel, which I am happy about!  When I was finished with both, I cut them out with the coordinating Floral Vase diecut set. This time the white cardstock panel was cut using the Essentials: Diagonal Stitched Rectangles and mounted to the front of a light blue A2 cardbase.

I painted a very faint shadow at the base of the vase, then layered the floral pieces to the front. I stamped the sentiment in onyx black ink to white cardstock, then trimmed into a thin strip with banner edges. I adhered it to the front, then accented with the Essentials: Jewels Mix.

I've been making square cards recently (I blame the features we have in Practical Publishing magazines, as they are always asking for different shapes of cards), and thought that a square shape would compliment this Leafy Envelope die perfectly. I used a sheet of Just A Little Lovely 6x6 patterned paper as the background, and trimmed it slightly smaller than my card base, then adhered it to the front with foam adhesive.

I diecut the envelope from white cardstock a couple times, then stamped the first part of the sentiment to the inside middle of the envelope. Then I glue just the lower have of the envelope down to the card front. I diecut the Beautiful word die three times from light pink cardstock, then stacked & adhered together. I covered it in chunky glitter, then adhered it underneath the stamped portion of the sentiment.

Next I diecut & stamped all the Lovely Blossoms in various premium dye inks. Then I tucked them into the envelope as shown, so it would look like an envelope full of wild flowers...so pretty! To finished I accented with some Essentials: Jewels Mix.  

For my final card, I paper pieced the Modern Blooms die, cutting it twice from white cardstock, then from two different sheets of patterned paper from our Just A Little Lovely 6x6 pad. It did take some time, but not as long as I thought it would...and I LOVE how it turned out. From my experience, the small pieces stayed in tact with the entire diecut piece when I removed it from my diecut machine. But they easily popped out when I needed them, and I used my Crystal Katana to pick them up and glue them on to the card front.

Once the paper piecing was done I layered two of the outline cuts to the top, making sure white was on top. Then I stamped & heat embossed the ribbon & first part of the sentiment from the Floral Vase stamp set to vellum & white cardstock in gold embossing powder, then diecut them. Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment in onyx black to white cardstock, and trimmed into to thin strips. I layered bow & sentiment to the lower right side of the card, then added some of the excess Lovely Blossoms I had stamped for the card above. Finally, I accented with our Essentials: Jewels Mix to finish.

Those are my cards for today! I hope that you loved all the florals, and happy colors. I certainly enjoyed creating them!
