The One with the Pink Fresh Studio February Release Blog Hop




Hello everyone.

BLOG HOP:

Here is a list of all of the blog hop participants.






To create this card, I started with a piece of heavy weight white cardstock cut to 5 x 6 1/4 to match the size of the stencils in the NEW Spark of Goodness Floral Frame Bundle. This makes it easier for me to line up the stencils.



Before using the stencils I wanted to stamp the red rubber stamp offered in the bundle. This is the lined image of the design. I used one of the stencils to help myself line up the stamp to the best of my ability making the stencil process easier as well. I stamped the image using a medium gray ink making a subtle design on the paper.


Once the image was stamped, I lined up each of the four stencils in the bundle using Pink Fresh Studio inks to create the pink or orange flowers respectively. I also used some green inks to create the greenery design.


I used the coordinating die to cut out the center of the design. This left me still with an oversized card front. I cut it down using a die that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 which is the same size as an A2 card front.



I stamped the smaller red rubber stamp from the Spark of Goodness stamp set directly onto my light gray card base. I stamped it multiple times to create a design in the background.


As for the sentiment, I used the "never stop" stamp and coordinating die from the NEW Chrysanthemum Slimline Bundle. I used white embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment and I used it's coordinating die to cut it out. I also cut it an additional three times so that I could adhere some extra layers of cardstock to the sentiment to pop it up and give it a dimensional look.


The card panel was popped up using adhesive foam squares directly onto the stamped card base. I then used liquid adhesive to stick on my sentiment in the center of the cut out.



This black and white beauty was so easy to put together. I stamped bottom of the NEW Chrysanthemum stamp onto another piece of heavy weight white cardstock cut to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. I then stamped it again an another piece, only this time I stamp only the top of the design. I used the coordinating die to cut out the top portion and popped it up onto the uncut panel using foam squares.


The sentiment is from the same Chrysanthemum Slimline bundle. I stamped it onto a piece of black cardstock and cut it out using the coordinating die. I then also cut it from black craft foam and adhered them together to give it a dimensional look. I also added some shiny black enamel dots from my stash.



This card was assembled in a similar manner only I used black ink to stamp the background onto the same white cardstock. I then used the coordinating stencils and Pink Fresh inks to ink blend the chrysanthemum and I used the coordinating die to cut it out. This time I cut down the panel to 4 3/4 by 3 1/2.


I don't think it matters what color you used to ink blend this flower, it will pop on the black and white background.


I hope that I've inspired you to create something today. Thank you for visiting my blog.
