Pinkfresh Studio August 2023 Holiday Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

Hello, and welcome to the Pinkfresh winter 2023 release! My husband came in my craft room and said, "woah, you're working on Christmas projects already?" Yes, yes I am, and it's been so much fun! I didn't even need to mentally escape the sweltering heat like my friends in Texas, these holiday products are just so inspiring!

You may have come from the delightful blog of Kathleen, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with Pinkfresh.

First up is the Floral Bauble Stamp Set which of course has a coordinating die and stencil set as well. So beautiful, and for all you floral lovers, it's a great and logical way to design a floral holiday card.  

The main floral bauble image comes with a vertical ribbon to hang the ball from, but I thought it would be fun to cut that off and substitute a real ribbon. 

Very appropriate to throw a few gems on here.

This set comes with two smaller floral clusters to tuck behind the hanging ribbon, which I've used in conjunction with some smaller foliage as well. I love the lush look of the florals with the ribbon for the holiday.

The next set is perhaps my favorite, the Festive Ticket Stamp Set. The stamp has six small holiday images, and the die cuts them all out at the same time, so efficient! 

For this card I stamped the cluster of holiday images 4-5 times to cover the card front, and the coordinating stencils made short work of coloring them all. 

To make the sentiment stand out I wrapped some vellum around the card front and then adhered both sentiments on top.

The prior card just used the 
Festive Ticket Stamp Set, but the coordinating die set allows you to easily add the small images to a really cool die-cut ticket. 

These little tickets are PERFECT for gift tags, but if you gather a few of them together they pull double duty for a card as well. 

You can add flourishes to the top or bottom of the ticket, add your sentiment directly, and of course add the holiday images.

I liked attaching these tickets on the top section only, so then I can lift them up for extra dimension.

Here's a card with the little images from the Festive Ticket Stamp Set clustered around the sentiment.  

The base of the card is decorated with the stamp and coloring stencil from the 
Winter Berries Frame Stamp Set 

As I was photographing the cards, I decided I didn't like the dark windows on the car, so I got out the exacto knife and cut them out. 

I think these small images give an eclectic, collected look to the card. 

My final card is another mash up between the Festive Ticket Stamp Set and the Winter Berries Frame Stamp Set. I just used the small Christmas tree and mounted it on several layers (star, ticket, panel) for a luxe look.

I accented the Winter Berries Frame Stamp Set background with the 3D Nuvo Crystal Drops in a red and a pink color. 

These two sets don't initially seem to go together, but I enjoyed pairing them a few different ways. 

Well there you have it, five different cards with three of the new holiday sets from this new Pinkfresh release! Are you ready to dive into holiday crafting?!
