Pinkfresh Studio Celebrate Us



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 also decided to create two different sizes of cards to share the versatility of these stamps and the new SLIMLINE DIES.

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:

Pinkfresh Studio Celebrate Us

  • 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.

Do you love to do challenges?  I sure do, and today’s cards both qualify for the Monthly Challenge over at PINKFRESH

    I think it’s really cool be used to collaboration stamp set for this collaboration blog hop! Your colors are lush and stunning and I love seeing that stamps that used for both a Slimline and A2card. Beautiful!

    1. Thank you Helen, I like a stamp with multi uses and this is one of them, you can watercolor like I did, or use the fill in stamp.

  4. Both cards are just lovely, Sandi! I’ve yet to create a slimline card, but you’re inspiring me…once I get those Pinkfresh dies.
