pinkfresh studio january release blog hop


Happy Monday and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio January Release Blog Hop! I'm so thrilled to be joining in the fun!!!

This release has really cute stuff and I wasn't sure where to start! SO MANY IDEAS!!! But since I know you have a whole hop to do and can't spend your whole day with me, I decided to start with the Spring Floral die!



This is actually a two piece set, a delicate top layer and a background. So far I've only gotten around to using the top layer, LOL!

For all three cards, I die cut the top layer and colored it with Copic markers. My top tip for working with intricate and delicate dies like this is to apply a thin, double-sided adhesive like Stick It to your cardstock before die cutting.

I trimmed the edges off this die cut and added it to a white glitter paper panel with a sentiment strip underneath. And of course, rhinestones!



I used the extra pieces trimmed from the first card and adhered them over a shaker window.


And for this card, I used the delicate Spring Floral die behind a panel with "love" cut using the Adore Alpha dies.



Ok, now before you go on to the next hop stop! Let's talk about all the cool GIVEAWAYS!
