Tip + Card Showcase: Pinkfresh Studio + GIVEAWAY

Hello! I am trying out a new type of video today. I call it a “Card + Tip Showcase Video“… where I share lots of cards and random tips while showcasing a new product release. Today’s release is the new Pinkfresh Studio – – it is great!

[All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. Multiple stores are also linked in the parentheses following the product name. Compensated affiliate links may be used at no cost to you.]

Here are the cards I showed in the video… all featuring the new Pinkfresh Studio Products (SSS | PF)…

My first card shares a couple helpful tips. First, I silver heat embossed lots of of floral images from Pinkfresh Inked Florals Stamp Set (SSS | PF) and then stamped the solid layering images with soft ink. I really appreciate the artsy look of this set – so pretty!

One of my tips is to add shadows/dimension very quickly by using a slightly darker marker over the stamping. It takes such little time but adds so much. My second tip is for adding heat embossed dots. I use a quickie glue pen to do this! It works great.

I added a white heat embossed sentiment from the Pinkfresh My Favorite Things To Say Stamp Set (SSS | PF). This set is full of encouraging messages.

My second card shows how to create a unique gatefold card with stamping and partial die cutting. Watch the video for the complete how-to… it is easy! I used leaf images from the Pinkfresh Lush Greenery Stamp Set (SSS | PF) and a sentiment from the Pinkfresh My Favorite Things To Say Stamp Set (SSS | PF).

Here you can see the fun fold design of this card…

My next card shares tips on creating see-through cards with background dies. I used the new Pinkfresh Geo Star 1 (SSS | PF) and Star 2 (SSS | PF) to form the card… along with images from the cutie Pinkfresh Happy Hugs Stamp Set (SSS | PF) on the front.

This next card features the oh-so-awesome Pinkfresh Mandala Stamp Set (SSS |PF). This set makes it easy to create a card quickly! In the video I share an important tip: When layering dye inks, heat set between the colors. It allows for crisper results.

I also added touches of darker colors with a Copic Marker and bits of shine with Glossy Accents.

In my video I show how to do a quick die-cut-inlay-look with the new Pinkfresh Hello With a Bouquet Die (SSS | PF). I really like how this die cut fills the card!

The top layer of the “HELLO” is Tonic Gold Mirror Cardstock. The gold shines perfectly.

This next card features the new Pinkfresh Folklore Die (SSS | PF)… it is a beauty! I colored the die cut with Copic Markers before adding it to a notecard.

In the video I show a trick for adding die cut letters to a card with perfect placement. The “just a note” is part of the Pinkfresh Folk Mandala Dies (SSS | PF).

These last four cards feature two great die sets – the Pinkfresh Dainty Blossoms Dies (SSS | PF) and Noteworthy Frames Dies (SSS | PF). I also show how to use the Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes to add soft color to white die cuts.

I also added shimmer to the die cuts with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen.

  9. Thank you for the terrific video. I just settled in with a cup of coffee and enjoyed watching it. There are so many good tips here that I can use them with some of the supplies I already have. I love so many of the supplies you featured, but the Noteworthy Frames is now on my Must-Have List. Thank you.

  17. My fav. from this release is “My favorite things to say”, and I already placed it in my wish list in my next order!
    Yes, it becomes a long video clip but I love how you changed the format. I’ve been watching you forever, since, so sometimes the change is nice, and I love this change 🙂

  18. Wow Jennifer, this is a great video! Love the new release with your card examples. Beautiful job. Love this whole release, especially the Mandela stamp with the birds. But it’s hard to claim a favorite, all the flowers are great too, especially the inked floral set. Love that they all have the matching dies. Great job.

  19. First of all I like this video style. It shows me companies I didn’t even know about.
    My favorite item is the “things I like to say” sentiments stamps set. Thanks for the opportunity.

  20. OMGoodness. Everything in this release is lovely – especially love the inked floral die. And I love all your creations!
