Pinkfresh Studio June Washi, Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

Hello Friends! What an exciting new release from Pinkfresh Studio this month ... I've been dying to share many of the new goodies, including the best butterfly stamp/die/stencil set ever (imho)!

You may have arrived from Keia, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with Pinkfresh Studio



Oh these butterflies! You will NOT BELIEVE how quickly and easily they are to make! Let me show you ...


The key to this collection of Small Butterflies is that there is just one giant stamp, one giant die, and a coordinated set of giant stencils. Once you stamp the butterflies, you put a stencil over them and now you're coloring all the yellow parts of the nine butterflies at the same time. Then you grab the next stencil and color all the orange parts of the butterflies, etc.

After the butterflies are colored, line the die up over them, and you instantly get 9 beautiful creatures ready to add to any and all of your projects.

You can add a butterfly as an accessory to a floral wreath, like this gorgeous arrangement. You might recognize it as the Daisy Wreath stencil set from a few releases ago, which we're featuring because now there's a Hot Foil Plate available for it!



Oh the shine on this hot foil! 

TIP: To give the wreath a little more dimension, I die cut an additional wreath from white cardstock, flipped it over, and layered it underneath the colored wreath. You can do this with any coordinating floral die. It will have the same general feeling as the top layer (i.e., all curvy edges, all sharp edges). And you don't have to buy another die!


You will also see this
Sweet Die and Sweet Hot Foil Plate on several cards because it's so cute. And sweet : ) I love how closely the die cuts to the hot foil, and how thin and delicate it is.


Here's where you get to reap the benefits of diecutting so many butterflies at once - you are free to load them up on your cards! No need to save these for a rainy day, you can always make more in a few minutes. I've made another mini-slim and added a trail of butterflies up the card.


I should note that it's always fun to bend the wings of the butterflies and just glue them to your card down the middle of their body. 

Here's another used of the Sweet die!


Also, on the bottom of the Diagonal Stitched Slimline Card panel is another new hot foil plate ... the Thankful for Friends Hot Foil Plate. I'm guessing you may have also seen some new gold goodies ... those glorious gold domes?! Welcome Metallic Pearls Gold to the Pinkfresh shop!
 

The other set I played with for this hop is the Lemons and Blueberries stamp, die and washi tape set. No coloring here, I just put the washi tape on cardstock and then used the die to cut out all seven pieces. 


This sentiment is part of the set, along with several other citrus-y sayings. Gotta love that blanket stitch on the oval and rectangular panels. And the leafy branch die leaves in gold and white work well to layer behind the lemon.


But I only used two of the Lemon and Blueberry pieces on the card, so what to do with the other five? Save them for a rainy day? NO! Let's use all of those beauties and make this into a custom coordinated set!

First use for our extras is inside the card! Tuck a few dies and some extra leaves behind a die cut oval (or any fun shape) and write your message on the die. 


Clockwise from top left:
- Put a strip of the washi tape across the front of the envelope, with an oval on top for the address;
- Use a die cut for the envelope flap;
- Use a strip of washi as an envelope liner; and
- Add a die cut to the back of your card where the hallmark would be. I always like to add my name and date here as well. 

You may just want to use one or two of these ideas. But when it's so easy to get all these die cuts, it's quite a luxury to be able to use then all!

  43. All projects were beautiful and fun to eyeball. But I was smitten with your use of the Washi tape. (I hate to admit this; but I have only used it to hold my dies to the card stock, until now.) Your use on the inside of the envelope flap and all the other applications was so thoughtful and inventive! You have made a Washi user of me - and Kudos to Pinkfresh for having such love Washi tape and dies to make it even more serviceable.
