Hi Pinkfresh Studio friends!

I am here today writing my final blog post of 2023 for Pinkfresh Studio.

What a year it has been!

December saw the release of the first ever Pinkfresh Studio Press Plates and it was so exciting. I hadn't used the BetterPress system until this release but it is so easy to use and you can get magnificent results. 

Today, I am sharing the Fairytale Frame Press Plate and as I write this, it is already sold out.  But, more are on the way so make sure you add your email to be notified as soon as it comes in stock. 

For my design, I used the Pinkfresh Studio Detail Black ink with the Fairytale Frame Press Plate. I wanted to colour with Copic markers and the PFS Detail Black ink does not bleed when colouring the images. As I had Valentine's Day inspiration in mind when designed this card, I opted for strong reds to contrast with the black. 

Once coloured, I die cut the frame and added some foam dots to the back. I then placed the frame over an A2 Dotted Scallop die cut panel. This added some interest to the background but allowed the red and black of the frame to pop.

Guess, what I did? Well, I heat embossed in champagne gold, one of the sentiments from the brand new Favorite Things Sentiment Press Plate!

It foiled beautifully.

To tie in the hot foiling with the bold black and reds, I added some Pinkfresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls. Voila.....Valentine's inspiration just for you!

I filmed my process and made a reel, so make sure you head over to Instagram  @pinkfreshstudio to check it out. 

Well friends, I will sign off......but before I do...

I want to wish each and every one of you a happy and fulfilling holiday season.

Big hugs

Cheryl
