Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop
Season's Greetings! There's a new Pinkfresh Studio stamp and die release today and it's all about the holidays! That means we're having a festive blog hop to go along with it, and as always, you have a chance to be inspired and to win some great prizes--like the entire release. I've provided some links and info here in my post, but the whole list of participating blogs, as well as all the new product details can be found on the Pinkfresh blog HERE. You may have arrived here from Rachel's blog, in which case you've no doubt seen something gorgeous! You're probably in the mood for more pretty things, so let's not waste any time--I have 3 projects to get to and you've got a lot of hopping to do.
I've concentrated my projects on the Layered Wreath dies, creating a set of tags with that wreath, and I've got 3 different examples. I paired my dies with the Home For the Holidays paper collection for some extra fun! My first tag uses all the dies that come in the set. I cut 2 wreaths from different papers and then used the smaller branch dies to fill out the top layer and add some differentiation. I used the same paper for those as the bottom layer of the wreath, and then cut some little flowers from a pinkish-reddish paper, arranging them around the wreath at even intervals.
The next tag is a bit different. I cut 2 of the wreaths from plain white cardstock and then took some small branch stamps to fill in for a classic-looking evergreen wreath. The branches can be found in the new Sparkle With Magic and Cozy Christmas Wishes stamp sets.
For berries this time, I used deep red crystals, and I've cut a circle tag from silver paper. For my sentiment, I chose a ribbon swath piece from the Home For the Holidays ephemera pack.
On my last tag, I capitalized on matching a cute stamped sentiment with the beautiful village paper featuring snow-covered houses. There's a stamp in the Merry Days set that says, 'From our home to yours' and it was too perfect not to use, especially on a gift tag.
The top wreath is a snowy dark blue pattern over a white cardstock wreath that's been softly inked up with a coral-colored ink and blending brush. The interior of this tag with all the detailed houses on it is a busy pattern so I chose simple designs for the wreaths, and then added some of the tiny dots in silvery glitter.
You can use the layered wreath in so many ways--and I know it will be an adorable addition to cards, too. These were a few packaging-centric ideas and I'm looking forward to trying more!
You'll be moving onto TaeEun's blog next, and she never disappoints with her beautiful work! Before you leave, though, I've just got a couple more things to tell you about the release and the prizes...
*Winners will be picked and posted on Monday, October 7th, on the Pinkfresh Studio GIVEAWAY PAGE. You must check that page & claim your prize within 2 weeks.
Enjoy the rest of the hop and I hope you get inspired to get a head start on some holiday crafting!
