SCT Magazine Guest Blog Post

May 19, 2020

Hi crafty friends! I'm excited to be a guest today over on the SCT Magazine blog! I am sharing a pretty pastel card to share with you that features many of the latest stamps & dies from Pinkfresh Studio, along with our premium dye inks which come in 48 delicious colors.

I tend to work in sections when I create cards, and I typically start with the stamping. I started by stamping the Nested Diamond background with premium dye inks in ballet slipper, lemon whip, peach fuzz and mint. This cling rubber background stamp has an exciting feature to it - each layer is a separate piece to make stamping in multiple colors a cinch! When the background was finished, I moved on to stamp layering the bouquet from the Modern Layered Floral stamp set. I find that it is easier to line up the stamp layers if you diecut this one first, then do the stamping in your MISTI - just use the negative cut as a jig. Finally, I stamped & heat embossed the sentiment from Layered Bouquet in Gilded embossing powder to white cardstock.

The next step is diecutting all the layers. I started by diecutting the background with the largest Diagonal Stitched Rectangle. Then I diecut a frame from champagne glitter cardstock using the Pretty Frames 2 die. Finally, I diecut the sentiment layers with our Fancy Label Frames die set.

I decided that I wanted a little extra shimmer, so I covered the Modern Layered Floral bouquet in a glitter mix of prisma & chunky glitters. I love mixing these two types of glitter together because they add an attention grabbing factor to any project!

At this point I put my card together. I mounted everything to a pink A2 top folding card base using foam adhesive. To make this card more mail friendly, you can use less dimensional adhesive if you'd like! I finished by accenting each corner with the Essentials: Crystals Mix in pink & clear.

Thank you so much to SCT Magazine for having me as a guest today! I was so happy to be asked!  That is all 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.

I've also started updating my CRAFTY SALE page more lately, so feel free to see what great deals there are out in the papercrafting world right now. It's a great time to support these small businesses if you are able!
