Pinkfresh Studio Joyful Bouquet

Good morning crafty friends!
I am here again today to share two more cards created using the beautiful washi tapes recently released by Pinkfresh Studios. 
This is card design #5. Today's spotlight is on the Joyful Bouquet washi tape and what a beauty this is. 
The washi has some sprigs of florals but it also has this main bouquet which I used as the focal image for my card. I added some gold thread to give the impression of a hand tied bouquet. 
when I created this card I had not received my new hot plate sentiments, so I used one from Spellbinders. 
Can I draw your attention to the background on this design. This was not achieved by an embossing folder, but by embossing the Simply Diamonds background die also by Pinkfresh Studios. 
Thats one thing I love about some die, you can achieve the embossed effect too!

Continuing my use of the Joyful Bouquet, my next card #6 uses other parts of the die cut washi tape. My design also uses the Frame Builder Botanical Circle Die also by Pinkfresh Studio.


For this background I found some paper from my stash and really build my colours and design around this. I die cut the circle die from white and complimentary cardstock to add some extra dimension.

 The sentiment is a simple one and die cut from shiny gold cardstock, which is ana alternative if you do not have a hot foil machine.

I hope I have inspired you again today....go ahead, give it a go and feel free to copy I don't mind!
Theres still 4 more cards to come with the washi tapes, so come back to see me very soon!

Pinkfresh Studio Anemone Magic

Good morning friends!

Let me share some Anemone Magic washi tape with you by Pinkfresh Studio!

So, I tried something a bit different with these two cards. Card # 3 (out of 10) above and below was created using navy cardstock as the backing for the washi tape instead of white cardstock. I wanted to see how bold it would be. I think it is really bold and quite striking actually

You will see the next card is on white cardstock, and I think there is quite a difference, don't you?

Card #4 below is another slimline card with some added gold accents. I used just one part of the washi tape here as I wanted to create a 'less busy' cleaner cut design.  

I hope as I present my designs to you, they inspire you to create something that makes you feel good. I love this incredible washi tape, and as I said in my last post, I really think it would be a great addition in your stash especially if you want to create something that doesn't need you to be great at colouring in images.

Well, whatever you do today I hope it brings you joy.

Take care!
