Pinkfresh Studio April 2020 Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop

by - April 30, 2020


Hello Pinkfresh friends! Welcome to the April 2020 release Blog Hop! I know I say this every time, but I am SO excited to share this release with you. Extra excited, even. There's lots of inspiration to see and PRIZES to be won, so let's just get right into it!

My first project features the beautiful liquid watercolors by Pinkfresh paired with the brand new Keep Going Stamp set. This stamp set has a gorgeous duo of flowers, as well as a sketched rainbow and some really heart warming sentiments. I decided to use no-line watercoloring for the floral images and focused on two of my favorite colors, yellow and purple. 


The liquid watercolors give such an artsy look to card designs and are so fun to use. The colors are so pigmented but easily blended at the same time, which lend perfectly to the no-line technique. To add a little texture and fun to this simple card, I used the outline of the block rainbow die and include in in the design just behind my watercolored florals. 



Pinkfresh is giving away the full release on the Pinkfresh blog, our IG feed & YouTube channel..
Each stop on the hop is giving away a $25 gift card.The winners will be picked from the comments.


The winners will be announced on May 8, 2020 on our GIVEAWAY PAGE. You must check that page & claim their prize within 2 weeks. You may also post the winner from your blog if you’d like once I share them, but it isn’t a requirement.


There are so many amazing products included in this release and some of my favorites are the color block dies. I decided to use the Color Block Stripes die to create a colorful rainbow card, with a fun sentiment. Though this isn't my typical style, I always admire these types of cards and I am so grateful for Pinkfresh making these dies to simplify this design. 


I used some of my favorite Pinkfresh inks to create this modified rainbow. I love the way the colors pair with each other and even more so when the large sentiment from the Whole Lot Of Awesome stamp set. To add a little more fun to the card, I used the sub sentiment "we should do a podcast of us laughing and drinking" because who hasn't thought that with their friends before?! 


Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please remember to leave a quick comment before following along the hop for your chance to win a $25 gift card. I hope to see you again soon!
