I have long admired Pink Fresh Studio and their gorgeous images, fabulous layering stencils, hot foil plates and dies and have been following them on Instagram. I particularly enjoy Yasmin Diaz and Yana Smakula for their beautiful clean and fresh cards with pops of colourful blooms and images.
Now that I have finally purchased some Pink Fresh Products I am participating in the January 2022 Challenge at Pink Fresh Studio. I really love my flowers so I am using the flower prompt from March last year. My favourite flowers are roses and I just had to purchase this Garden Roses set including the stamp, die and stencils. The Perfect Sentiments hot foil plate and coordinating die is just amazing and I have already foiled sentiments in lots of different colours!
For my slimline card I have used Amazing Paper Grace Slimline Fluted Classics By Becca Feeken as a base for the card. I have used the Spellbinders Diagonal Stripe Slimline Embossing Folder on a smaller piece of card and adhered to the centre of the card for a clean and classic base.
I have heat embossed the images with gold embossing powder and added the colour with stencils. I have created multi-coloured roses using the three lightest colours from the Indian Summer and Fairy Dust collections and the leaves have been coloured with the three lightest colours from the Garden Stroll Set.
I have trimmed the flowers and added a small spray at the top of the card and the rest of the flowers at the base of the card with foam tape.
To finish I have hot foiled the Happy Birthday sentiment using Spellbinders gold foil and stacked the sentiment with three plain sentiments and added it to the centre of the card. Finally I have added some gold pearls from Spellbinders.
I think it is so important to keep exploring different products and techniques to improve your crafting skills and grow as an artist!
