April 30, 2020


Happy Monday, crafty friends! It's release day at Pinkfresh Studio, and we are so excited to bring our our brand new stamp & die release from Pinkfresh Studio!

This release includes (5) 6x8 stamp sets, (4) 4x6 stamp sets, (2) red rubber background stamps, (3) Color Block die sets and (4) standalone die sets. This release is full of hopeful and encouraging stamp sets, which everyone could use right now! I am so excited to share all of my card samples with you, but first, here is at all the new products.

APRIL 2020 RELEASE
 
I've created an April 2020 stamp & die intro video for you today, with information on all the new stamps & Dies. You can watch it below, but be sure to click HERE and leave a comment for a chance to win the entire April 2020 release!

We've got a fantastic blog hop lineup and prizes at every stop! I'll get to all of that info at the end of my post, but how about we get to my cards first?

Color Block Stripes die + Hugs and Good Vibes stamp set
For my first card I created a shaker card using the Color Block Stripes die. This die is too DIE for! I cannot get over the perfectly straight lines, and clean edges. I create with strips of colored paper a lot, and I know by the end of adhering them down that my trimmer is not perfect. These strips are literally perfect - I think you are going to LOVE this new Color Block Series.

I stamped & heat embossed the sentiment from Hugs and Good Vibes to a block of heat resistant acetate, then created a shaker element to the front of my rainbow striped background.

I created a frame using the two largest dies from our Essentials: Stitched Rectangles, which is perfect for creating a shaker frame. I filled the shaker with a mixture of clear iridescent sequins and teeny, tiny jewels that I have on hand. It is a mixture from different brands.

Here is a peek at the second card I've made using the Color Block Stripes die.

If you frequent my blog at all, you know that I don't like to waste anything. When you diecut the stripes from all the different colors, you also get the dainty thin border cut as well. I decided to try and see if I could make a background out of these, even though the stripes are SO thin. It's not perfect, and next time I will use different adhesive that hopefully won't make the cardstock more malleable...but I am pretty thrilled with how it turned out!

I've also paired the Simply Sentiments: Hello stamp set with the previously released Sentiment Suite: You die set to create the sentiment.

I created a frame with the two edged dies from our Essentials: Diagonal Stitched Rectangles die set. I finished by accenting with our Essentials: Crystals Mix

Nested Diamond background stamp + Believe in Yourself stamp set
We are introducing two new red rubber cling background stamp sets to our collection, but these ones have an added detail that makes them extra amazing. Each piece in the designs are removable so that you can easily create multi-color or selective stamped backgrounds. This background was stamped in our premium dye inks with the Nested Diamond background stamp, then trimmed down with the largest Essentials: Stitched Rectangle die. Next I stamped & diecut the Believe in Yourself floral image in matching colors.

I layered them with the Ornate Oval Frame cut from glitter paper. Then I stamped the sentiment, and diecut it with one of the Essentials: Basic Label Frames. The heat embossed scripted word was also cut out using the Believe in Yourself coordinating dies. I accented the card with our Essentials: Jewels Mix to finish.

I also added some very light gold splatters to the background and floral piece with Gansai Tambi Starry Colors paints and a size 4 round watercolor brush.

Keep Going stamp & die set
Up next is the stamp set I am most enamored with in this release called Keep Going. I can relate with so many of the sentiments, but especially this one. If you are new to my blog, then you might not know that I lost two babies very tragically in 2015 and 2016. I did help a little with the sentiments in this set, realizing that we all go through darkness but that ,is also always light. I did the no-line coloring technique with my Zig markers on the main images in this set, then cut them out with the coordinating die set.

The background is stamped in Sky Blue using our Diamond Tiles background stamp, which is one of my very favorites! I stamped the first part of the sentiment to the top of the background in Detail Black, then diecut the panel with the largest Essentials: Stitched Rectangle die

I accented this card with our Essentials: Crystals Mix in blue, pink & yellow to finish.

I really love this stamp set so much, and I think you really will too!

Chevron Background + Modern Layered Floral stamp set
I stamped this background using the new red rubber cling Chevron background stamp, which also has the removable pieces like the one I shared earlier. I stamped it in Misty Coast & Rocky Slope. Then I stamped the Modern Layered Floral bouquet in those same colors, plus Ocean Breeze & Aquamarine.

I diecut the florals with the coordinating die, then diecut the background with the largest Essentials: Ornate Banner. I also diecut an aqua colored frame with the same banner die set, using the two largest dies. I added one of the bows from our new Artistic Bows die set, and it is such a fun added touch!

I stamped the sentiment in Detail Black, then finished by accenting this card with our Essentials; Crstyals Mix

Phrase Builder: Hello die set + Simply Sentiments: Hello stamp set
I've got one final bright and rainbow colored card to share with you today. This card features the Nested Diamond background, which I've trimmed into two pieces and rotated 180 degrees. I didn't want to trim too much of the background away, so I created a 5.25 inch square card base for this one.

I diecut the words hello friend using the new Phrase Builder: Hello die set, and finished it by stamping a sentiment from Simply Sentiments: Hello in Detail Black. I adhered them to the card front, then finished by accenting with our Essentials: Jewels Mix.

Those are all the cards I have for you today! If you have any questions at all, be sure to leave them in the comments.

How about we get to all the info you need for this new release!

And although, we got to see all your amazing cards, it so nice to also see them in the blog and get some more details on them!
    I am a hug fan of your style. Its a combination of your colour choice and layouts. You just know what needs to go where and what colours are going to really make things pop! I really like the one card with the frame. Those pretty pastels with the gold coloured frame is so pretty! And the chevron cards, from the bright colours to the soft grey and pastels. Amazing! Also, so many different ways and uses for this background stamp set!
    Pink fresh has once again put together an amazing release!
