pinkfresh studio blog hop


Hello!  If you've come from Isha's blog as part of the Pinkfresh Studio DT Intro Blog Hop, welcome!  I've seen all the girls' sneak peeks so I know you've seen some awesome projects already!  I'll have the full hop list at the end of this post for you.  This is a great chance to meet the entire Pinkfresh Design Team--there are lots of new faces for this term, and some familiar ones, too.


At the end of the post you can also leave me a comment to win an awesome prize pack of new Pinkfresh products!  You'll have a chance to win a stamp & die prize pack worth $100 OR the entire Escape the Ordinary paper/embellishment collection.




The two winners will be randomly selected.  To be eligible, you must leave a comment on ALL blogs in the hop.  Comments close at 11:59 PM CST on Friday, August 18th.  Winner will be announced on August 25th on the Pinkfresh Studio blog.

Onto the projects!


I'm sharing 2 cards, using a mix of elements from Escape the Ordinary and stamps.  I wanted to use some sentiment stamps in conjunction with the colorful elements of ETO.  My first card is an all occasion greeting against a piece of graphic coral paper from the 6x6 paper pad.  The butterfly die cut, with its gold foiled details looms large behind the stamped tag and floral puffy stickers.


I added some dotty fabric and a marigold fringe bow from my own stash to match the florals.  The 'Hello friend' stamped sentiment is simply stated and beautifully lettered by Inna Moreva.  You can find the stamp on the 'Forest Friends' set. 


My second card follows the same sketch, but is not quite as bright and bold, due to the fact that it's a sympathy card.  I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that these are my least favorite cards to make, due to the sad subject matter.  However, I also think that they are some of the most important and meaningful--and appreciated.



I kept the card subdued, with softer, neutral details like the leaves and branches, deep green patterned paper, and elegant black and white fabric.  I did add a peach bow, because I know my recipient is going to appreciate it when she receives it.  (She's a fellow crafter who adores all things feminine and recently suffered the loss of a close family member.)  Again, the gorgeous lettering by Inna conveys a heartfelt message; no other words are needed here.  (You can find this stamp as part of the 'Say It With Florals' set.)



Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Anna next!  Don't forget to leave a comment everywhere you go for the chance to win some awesome Pinkfresh Studio goodies!

  19. That is a beautifl sympathy card and I hopw the crafter who recieves it is comforted during the difficult time of a lost family member. I always wondered if cards by bloggers were made and sent out or just made for show. Now I know. Thanks for sharing great idea with the tassle bow! To keep it in place did you glue the back or you left it fluffy frilly?
