Hi card making friends and welcome back. I have a fun post for you today, Pinkfresh Studios Celebrate us. Today’s Blog Hop is a collaboration between two design teams, Pinkfresh Studios and My Sweet Petunia – Misti team.

There is a riot of color in my gardens right now with bright beautiful flowers blooming everywhere and it’s my inspiration for today’s cards.
I white heat embossed this beautiful floral image from the Altenew/Pinkfresh Collaboration stamp set “Celebrate Us” onto watercolor paper. Then got out my Gansai Tambi watercolors for some water coloring fun.
Details for the Pinkfresh Studio Celebrate Us Cards:
- I used my Misti to stamp each flower image twice in Versamark ink onto watercolor paper and then white heat embossed each one.
- TIP – when I’m stamping on the rough surface of watercolor paper I like to stamp a couple of times to ensure a good solid image.
- Next, using the wet on wet technique, I blended in pink 34, and yellow 33, with just a tip of 139 purple to the flowers.
- Once the flowers were dry, I went back in with green 53 and teal 57 for the leaves.
- The coordinating die make them a breeze to cut out.
- For the slimline card above I used the Pinkfresh Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles dies to cut the background. Using the large one first, I then blended Distress Oxide Inks Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade across the card front. When the ink was dry, I splattered it with white paint and let that dry also.
- Finally, I put it back into my die cutting machine and cut it with the smaller deco edge die for some added interest.
- Before attaching the flowers, I added 4 die cuts from the Leafy Branch Die in white for a little background noise.
Details for the Pinkfresh Studio Celebrate Us Card #2:
- Card #2 started off the same way this time using a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 panel to ink blend before overlaying it with this beautiful Geo Floral Background die piece.
- Adding a floral at the top and the bottom left the center open for the die cut sentiment that comes with the set.
- Finally, I added Pinkfresh Studios Essentials Jewels Mix in pink to both cards for a little bling.
