Pinkfresh Studio June Challenge



Good Day!! Today I have a card for the Pinkfresh Studio August Monthly challenge. 




I finally had a chance to play along!! This month's challenge was to create a background. I used the Ornate Medallions coverplate for my background and backing it with purple cardstock. Next, I stenciled the Folk Floral Stem and then stamped over it with the Folk Floral Stem stamp to get the black outline. I die cut the Folk Floral Stem with the matching die and adhered to the card front with foam dots for a little dimension. The sentiment is from the Heart Smiles stamp set and was die cut with the matching die

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

 It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge.

This week the colors were chosen by Amy Rohl!!

Pinkfresh Studio Challenge




Good Day!! Today I have a card for the Pinkfresh Studio February Monthly challenge. This is the second time I have made a card for the challenge.... but, the first time getting it entered in time :-)

I fell in love with the colors and that was the inspiration for my card. 


I played with old and new products. The background was created with the fairly new coverplate die Sparkling Diamonds. Then I hot foiled the Folk Garden foil plate in gold... gorgeous!! I am definitely loving hot foiling. Once it was hot foiled I used the coordinating stencils to add the colors from the inspiration photo... Coral Reef, Candy Apple, Mermaid Cove, and Aquamarine. Next, I die cut the image with the coordinating die and adhered to the Sparkling Diamonds cover plate. The sentiment is from the Fancy Scripts hot foil plate and coordinating die. I am fairly new to Pinkfresh Studio and I love the coordinating products. 

Here's a pic so you can see the gorgeous gold foiling....


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
