Hot Foil Plate by Pinkfresh Studio


Hi crafty friends!

Heather Hoffman who works with Pinkfresh Studio tells a story of how she thought it was such a waste when she did hot foiling and had the negative space left over. That thought sent her and Pinkfresh Studio on a journey to create a hot foil plate that could be used with these negative foil remnants. 

I have released a short video today, showing what the negative foil remnants can turn into when you use this fabulous new flat hot foil plate!

Check out Pinkfresh Studio videos on You Tube because Heather has an incredible one that help you with the sandwich for each machine, because as you probably know by now, all machines can require their own adjustments to the basic sandwich formula. 

I hope you enjoy the video and you feel inspired! Check out my link below...

Spellbinders Cardmaker II Release - Jump For Joy

Hi crafty friends!

On November 9th, Spellbinders launched a new collection called Cardmaker ll Stamp Collection. It’s a versatile release of stamps with a bit of something for everyone. I was invited by the talented Yana Smakula to participate in the release, so of course I was thrilled!
I was quite adventurous and actually made six cards in total, two with each stamp set that I received. I am sharing all six cards over a period of a couple of weeks between Instagram and my blog to hopefully get you inspired and give you some ideas on how you can use the sets.

Today’s post showcases the first two cards using the fun stamp set called Jump For Joy
I absolutely love this set, it makes me smile. I loved colouring the little guys in with my Copic markers too!
This first card is a regular slimline card and I cut three circle windows out of the front panel. I stamped some unicorn white inky leaf images on some kraft cardstock to formulate a backdrop. I used kraft cardstock because I knew it would work well with the colour for the little frogs.

The second acrd below is a regular A2 size. I ink blending the background and did a bit of splattering. I wanted it to look a bit messy as though the little guys were jumping around in water if that makes sense?

I can honestly say I love to make fun and cute cards sometimes even though I am primarily a flowers girl. 

Well, I hope these fun cards give you a little inspiration and gets you wanting to get crafting today!
Keep an eye out as I will be posting the last two cards later this week, where I am back to more pretty and elegant themes and some hot foiling!

Bye for now
