Hello Friends, today marks my last post here on the Pinkfresh Studio blog. It has been a wonderful 1.5 years...Many dear friendships, an opportunity to be part of a very special team, and heaps of lasting memories later, my heart is full.
It brings me great joy to share these colorful projects with you as my sendoff. The most fun part? These cards contain NO stamping! (Ok, just a tiny bit of embossing, but who's counting ;)
I really wanted to challenge myself to use dies and other accents in place of stamps. Stripes, lacy details, and lots of lucious color, make it super easy to pack your projects with lots of interesting details.
In addition to striped die-cuts, and lacy card fronts, I've also added some puffy alphas and a die-cut sentiment.
And finished things off with sparkly jewels. It turned out not to be such a hard challenge after all! These beautiful dies make it so fun :)
For my next card, I've accented the Simply Diamond die, with strips of colorful cardstock instead of the coordinating stamps.
I've turned the diamonds into mini shakers, filling each little cubbi with colorful sequins.
You could just as easily leave the partitions open, for a single shaker window.
At the bottom, I added a vellum sentiment and some gems...So much sparkly fun!
This is such a fun way to infuse a lot of color, without breaking out any ink pads. I hope you'll give these a try!
As I sign off, I want to take a minute to thank Pinkfresh Studio for having me on this special team. And thank YOU, sweet Friends, for all of your support and for loving on my projects all this time.
Stay crafty and beautiful!
