Pinkfresh Studio April Release Blog Hop

by - April 29, 2019


Hello everyone! I am incredibly thrilled to be joining Pinkfresh Studio today on their April 2019 release blog hop! There's tons of incredible inspiration during this hop so let's just get right into it! I'm playing favorites today and showing you lots of ideas on how to use the new Though The Trees background stamp set. Check out my video here!:


One of my favorite things about this stamp is that you can use it as intended, or you can rotate the card stock 180 degrees and re-stamp to make a fuller wooded scene. Be sure to check out my video for the double stamped technique, but here I'm showcasing this Distress Oxide stamped card. I've gotten some questions about specifically stamping with Distress Oxides, so I thought I'd feature this beautiful DO ombre stamping technique because I think this stamp set is just perfect for it!


Next I'm featuring the Just a Little Lovely stamp set. I'm so excited for this set because it's so much fun to color. I used Copic markers here with a bit of masking to cover the entire lower half of my card. I used Distress Oxides to create a beautiful, blended background that adds color and depth to the scene. The beautifully written sentiment "Everybody needs a friend, thank you for being mine" is from the Through The Tree's stamp set.


My next project features the Leafy Wreaths dies with, yet again, some Distress Oxide bending techniques. I used the center die to create a "true" wreath and included the "Simply enjoy it all" sentiment, from the Through the Trees stamp set. I love how delicate the die cut is and how you can add dimension by simply pulling the leaf cuts up from the card stock.


There's lots more to share, but I know you're anxious to get to hopping! Here's a fun gift for you!
