Pinkfresh Studio January 2020 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop

by - January 24, 2020


Hello crafty friends! Welcome to my stop on the Pinkfresh January 2020 Release Blog Hop! We're so excited to share all of the new goodies with you so let's just jump right in! Before I share my first project I would just like to clarify that with Creativation I was unable to create as much as I normally do for the release, however, I will have more examples and a new video coming very soon to make up for some of that! Now let's jump right in!


My first project is featuring the new Just Because stamp and die set. It's an absolutely beautiful bloom of petals and leaves that run up the entirety of an A2 sized card front. I decided to watercolor mine with pretty pink and yellow tones and complete the esthetic with a light ink blending and splatter of green watercolor for the background. I decided to pair this card with the new "you" die because I love the lettering and the size of the die. It takes up a nice amount of the card front without overwhelming the design. 
Pinkfresh is giving away the full stamp and die release to a lucky commenter on the Pinkfresh blog. Each of us designers are giving away a $25 gift certificate to a lucky commenter on each stop along the hop. Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win! Winners will be announced on the Pinkfresh Giveaway Blog on January 31.


You may be able to tell that I'm obsessed with this "you" word die. I decided to pair it here with the new Frame Builder: Botanical Circle die set. Pinkfresh has come out with several shapes for this frame builder and they are all equally beautiful and add such interest to a design. I kept this one extremely simple, letting the geometric shape speak for itself but combined them in a different way, alone rather than forming a circle like intended.

I hope that you've enjoyed seeing how I used some of my favorite products from the newest Pinkfresh release! You can view the entire hop list at the link here >>> https://fresh.inlinkz.com/party/78fe6e090e1a48f9a7062a3fb8a9324c
