Pinkfresh Studio December 2021 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

 

Hello and welcome to the Pinkfresh December new release! There's a fun mix of florals, unique images, thoughtful sentiments, essential dies, and new bling!

You may have come from the lovely Keia, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Pinkfresh Blog

Let's start with the florals, thoughtful sentiments and essential dies ...

 

This adorable mini slim features a panel cut with Blanket Stitch Slimline and Mini Slimline Rectangle Dies to give it that wonderful texture around the entire edge.

The florals are from the Citrus Bloom Stamp family of products (die and stencils are also offered, thank goodness). The other day I was looking thru my cards and realized I like to stick with lighter colors, so I mentally made a note to push myself to use some of the neglected darker colors now and then. The dark Stargazer navy/purple surprisingly turned out to be a perfect grounding element for the stem and base of the flowers. 

The nice thing about the Citrus Bloom Stamp is that it features citrus fruit in addition to the flowers, which allows you to introduce different color palettes like the yellow/green for the lemons and limes.  

If you're looking for a good set of unique and meaningful sentiments, I think you're going to like the Always Uplifting stamp set. Aside from artfully arranging the text and font, the content of the phrases is quite engaging. 

One tip in using these and other sentiments with a mix of typeface and script font is to stamp the fonts in different colors. In this case, the typeface font is stamped in black, and the script is embossed in gold. I don't cut the stamp apart to do this, just carefully ink up each section.

Here's a unique focal point image, a house (from the Built on Dreams Stamp)! The outline is simply rendered, but the inside of the house is filled with beautifully scrolling flowers and vines. And thanks to the Built on Dreams Layering Stencil they are easy to color! 



I added some hand-cut clouds that I used as a mask and stenciled over, and then included another set of sentiments from
Always Uplifting on the top and bottom of the card. Love how easy they are to integrate with your existing sentiments, like this "thank you."

Did you notice the new bling on both cards? That would be the Metallic Pearls: Sparkling Champagne! They have a darker base than the gold, and give off several different colors in the reflections. It's good to step outside my gold comfort zone now and then!
