Pinkfresh Studio + Altenew “Celebrate” Collaboration Blog Hop + Giveaway

June 26, 2020


Happy Friday, crafty friends! Pinkfresh Studio and Altenew have teamed up to bring you this very special collaboration collection called Celebrate, in honor of both companies celebrating our 6th year in business! Collaboratively and collectively designed, this collection was created to celebrate both milestones & everyday moments, and was designed with all papercrafters in mind. Celebrate includes a fresh & citrusy color palette perfect for summer time, and is full of gorgeous watercolor florals & elements.

We are so honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with our friends at Altenew on this beautiful collection, and we just know you will see both our design aesthetics throughout! The Celebrate collection includes 16 paper designs in both 12x12 and 6x6 size, along with a coordinating diecut ephemera pack. There are also (2) 4x6 stamp sets with coordinating dies. I am so excited to share all of my card samples with you, but first, here is at all the new products.

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?

This is my first card set using both stamp sets, plus a couple of the gorgeous papers from the Celebrate collection. Of course, I've also used a lot of our Essentials collection to help bring the designs together and give them those beautiful finishing touches.

"Celebrate every little thing" card supplies:
For this card I heat embossed the floral image in gold, then painted with Pinkfresh Studio liquid watercolors in Bubblegum, Clementine, Sunshine & Key Lime. I mixed some of those colors to create my own custom colors as well! I just loosely colored the image in.

I diecut the florals, then added white splatters to it. I chose a patterned paper background, and stamped & heat embossed the sentiment. After assembling the card, I accented with our crystals mix.

"Thankful for You" card supplies:
I went slimline with this card, and added snippets of the beautiful patterned paper peeking through the circles. I stamped the layered floral in 3 shades of our premium dye inks and diecut them. I splattered them with white paint as well.

I layered them to the card front, and added the sentiment to the lower right corner. I finished by accenting each circle with the coordinating color of crystals.

If you have any questions about these cards, leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.

I have another set of cards to share with you today, featuring this gorgeous collection of products!

"You are totally worth celebrating" card supplies:
On this card I attempted no line coloring for the first time with our liquid watercolors. I am pleased with how it turned out, even though it is not perfect. It's harder this way than using water based markers, but you mostly just have to be patient. I added both white & gold splatters to this floral piece after diecutting it.

I layered the card up with a patterned paper background and glittered frame. The sentiment is a mix of diecutting & stamping, and I accented with crystals to finish.

"Prayers for you" card supplies:
 For this card I stamped the layered floral in two different color families, then covered it completely in glitter after diecutting.

I layered the card up with a patterned paper background and glittered frame. The sentiment is a mix of diecutting & stamping, and I accented with crystals to finish.

 If you have any questions about these cards, leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.

    1. I mean, it's glitter. So it's messy. Lol! I'm pretty good about keeping the glittering process as clean as possible and then I put the card right into a clear envelope once I've photographed it. :)
