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)!
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.
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.
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.
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:
- Use a die cut for the envelope flap;
- Use a strip of washi as an envelope liner; and
