Wreath Cards Using Pinkfresh Studio Stamps, Stencils & Dies


Hi crafty friends!
I felt in the mood for pretty when I created these cards! Well, I feel in the mood for pretty most days when I create except when I am going through a cutsie phase :) 
These beauties were created using a wonderful stamps set by Pinkfresh Studio called Known & Loved. I was fortunate enough to pick up the stamp set, matching wreath die and the stencils. Im thrilled stencils are getting popular. I really think it helps especially if you are not so confident with your colouring skills.
I wanted to show a couple of colour combos to show just how different the same wreath can look. 

The above card design is with a soft pink, taupe and green. The sentiment is from my other lovely stamp set also by Pinkfresh Studio called Floral Notes

The card below uses the same Known & Loved stamp set but in navy, pink and blue. I have a shirt that was just this colour, so it inspired me for this one. 

I case you were wondering the large sentiments on both cards were die cut out of glossy gold cardstock.

Well, whatever you are doing this week I hope it is a good one for you!

Gina K Designs Forever Flowers Card Kit


Hi crafty friends!
So in order to obtain the latest Forever Flowers card kit by Gina K,  I stalked her website and put a reminder in my calendar to watch her release video. Apart from the fact, she is a joy to watch, I think Gina's kits are incredible value and the quality is amazing!
Todays slimline cards were created using the kit. The first colour combo is pink and lemon. As it's near Easter I thought these were spring like colours. One of the stamps sets in the kit is a layered floral set, and it really wasn't difficult to layer up. I know some crafters struggle with layering for one reason or another, and I know some stamp sets out there can be difficult. This one certainly isn't complicated, so please try it. I was sure to stamp a few times on each layer with my Gina K inks, and then you get this amazing solid look with no white areas.

The second card below was created using a second stamp set from the kit, which, as a friend suggested, looks like henna designs. Because of the beautiful artwork on this set, I really didn't want to colour it. I wanted the boldness to stand out. I accented the black with gold, and a very subtle background stamping so I did not detract from the main focal image.

I am still learning good photography, so I apologize for the shine reflection on the gold sentiment in the pictures with this card.

Easter is upon us and I hope you guys have a chance to connect with your loved ones.

Take care!
