Pinkfresh Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop Celebration



Hello and welcome to the 5th birthday celebration for Pinkfresh Studio!!



Isn't it exciting?! 5 years!! I have been with Pinkfresh Studio for a bit and this is a "good people" company. I absolutely adore Kinnari (the owner) and the way she conducts things. You never feel like you are chatting with your "boss", she is so down to earth. If you don't know her, you should! Lea, our manager for everything, keeps us working smoothly. So I have to give them a huge standing ovation for all that they do and then some.

I have made three cards today using a panel that I stamped and watercoloured a while back.


For the panel, I used the Inked Floral Stamp Set to stamp and heat emboss several images.
Then I used the liquid watercolours in Aquamarine, Emerald City, and Sapphire to ink the panel.


For the first card, I cut a panel of the watercoloured paper (used Canson watercolour paper) and adhered gold foil die cuts from the Folk Elements Die Set.
Sentiment is from My Favourite Things to Say.


Onto my second card.


For this, I used the butterfly die from the Bloom and Grow Die Set. This is actually a coordinating die set to the Bloom and Grow Stamp Set but I used it to die cut my butterfly twice. Once from the watercolour paper and once in gold foil.


The sentiment is from My Favourite Things to Say.


For my third card, which was actually the first one I made, I drew a circle with a compass and fussy cut it. I adhered this onto my card front and then adhered a gold foil die cut of the Smile Die.


The sentiment is from My Favourite Things to Say.


I hope you liked my simple cards made out of one panel of watercolour goodness.
