Featured Crafty Sale - 20% off Standalone Dies at Pinkfresh Studio

December 13, 2019

Happy Friday, crafty friends! I wanted to pop in and share Pinkfresh Studio's weekend promo. We are offering 20% off select standalone dies with the code STANDALONE. This code is valid through Sunday night on in-stock items only. It is not valid on dies in the NEW or SALE category. Finally, you must use the code upon checkout in order to get the discount.

If you frequent my blog at all, you know that I LOVE dies. Like...LOVE. I love the nice finished edge that dies give, and just how much easier they make papercrafting for me. It's been so whirlwind busy over here, that I haven't really had a chance to pull out our holiday paper collection yet. It's called Home for the Holidays, and it is fantastic! The bundles on our site sold out super quickly, and we don't re-order seasonal paper or embellishments. However, it looks like you can still get most of it at Simon Says Stamp, and all of it at Scrapbook.com (including 12x12 paper options).

For my first card, I finally had a moment to use the Lovely Frames die that we released this year. I didn't get a chance to use it when it released, and I can't believe it's taken me so long to pull it out. I thought it was so fun to use for a scrapbooking style card! 

To start this card I did a lot of diecutting. I cut the Lovely Frame from 130 LB white cardstock three times, then adhered it together with spray adhesive. Then I mounted it to the front of a cashmere colored A2 card. Next I diecut it from six different 6x6 papers. I pulled two papers from our Office Hours 6x6 paper pad to add some additional pink into the mix, and the other 4 are from the Home for the Holidays 6x6 paper pad.

I mixed and matched the inside labels until it looked right, then adhered those down permanently. After that I just embellished the front with different stickers & such from the Home for the Holidays collection. I know someone will likely wonder about the leatherette bow - it is from the kit we offered with a gift wrap class two years ago. It is no longer available, but you can change it out for any type of bow, or use our amazing bow diecut! Finally, I added a few Essentials: Jewels in white & yellow.

One thing about me is that I don't like to waste paper strips, and you always end up with them when you are using 6x6 papers. So, this is a go to card design for me when I have thin strips that I need to use up. For this second card I've used up all the paper strips that the card above created, and diecut them with our Lacey Edgers 1 dies

The papers were wonky on the left side, so I covered up that far left edge with some ribbon, which was a nice touch. I kept trying other pieces of patterned papers at first, but I just wasn't feeling it. I am glad that I thought to look in my ribbon drawer, because it turned out much better this way!

I embellished the card with some more Home for the Holidays goodies. Then I finished by adding some Essentials: Jewels in pink as the berries.

Well friends, this weekend is a really great weekend to grab some of our fave standalone dies from Pinkfresh. There are 52 different dies eligible for the 20% off discount code, and I pretty much love every single one. Lol!

That is everything I have for you today! If you have any questions about my card, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.
