Pinkfresh and Imagine Dragons!

Hi Folks! I am so very honored to be a guest designer for the Pinkfresh blog!! Kinnari, the amazingly kind, funny and generous owner of Pinkfresh, messaged me late one night after I had just returned from the Imagine Dragons concert. I had just been a few feet from Dan Reynolds for the past 3 hours, and I was probably pretty incoherent as I replied to her wonderful offer to guest design.

That was one of the best nights of the summer ... Imagine Dragons front center, and Kinnari asking me to be a guest designer : )

Anyway, I went nutty over the Pinkfresh Studio Fancy Floral 1 and Fancy Floral 2 dies. Once I sat down to craft, I couldn't get up, and before I knew it I had NINE cards in the process of being made.

This card has the background colored differently, with a white layer on top. I also left a strip of the paper uncut for the sentiment.

Here I just snipped away the middle of the die and added a gold sentiment.

This is perhaps my very favorite card of the bunch! Both layers are multicolored on a black background, with the smallest sentiment. 

Up close : )

More dissecting the die ... this time to remove all the individual flowers and leaves!

They are just loosely gathered, like they would be in a bouquet, under the sentiment.

These cards simply have two different solid colored die cuts layers on the card. So many different possibilities!

How about purple vellum over a blended ink background?

You can cut the die down to use it as a layering piece behind a smaller panel.

Or use the dies as a stencil to spray ink on?

So many different ways to use the Fancy Florals 1 and Fancy Florals 2 dies! Check them out at Pinkfresh Studio and my full blog post at the Pinkfresh blog!

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I saw all these on IG and drooled, Kelly. You have such a great imagination when it comes to using stamps and dies in innovative ways. It's always fun to see what you create and these beauties are no exception.
