Hi friends! Sophie here and I am SO excited to share with you my first project as part of the ScrapbookPal design team! To say that I am both honored and humbled to be here is an understatement for sure... What a dream come true to be on a team with such talented ladies! :) So without further delay let's take a look at my project, plus a bonus tag!
To create this mini slimline card I used the Floral Bauble suite of products from Pinkfresh Studio (Stamps, Dies, & Stencils). I love the variety included in the Pinkfresh Mini Slimline Bundle. I used two of the dies in this set to create the delicate ivory frame for the card.
I also used the Pinkfresh Large Snowflake dies cut out of some vellum to add interest/texture in the background. I also sprinkled some of the Pinkfresh Champagne Jewels around - these are my absolute FAVORITE. So sparkly and fun!
To create my little floral cluster I used the stencils along with some of the new Pinkfresh Studio inks with these Pinkfresh Blending Brushes. The greens are from the Green Gables collection and the pinks/reds are from the Rose Garden collection. I love how the Pinkfresh blending brushes are small and I can control the shading on various parts of the image. It's fun to create gradients of color to add interest to stenciled images!
For the sentiment at the bottom of the card I used Pinkfresh Basic Banners Christmas stamps along with their coordinating die. I LOVE the versatility and value of having one die for multiple sets. I hope Pinkfresh adds more stamps to this line up!
Prior to assembling my project I used the final stencil (#5 in the set) to add some of the new Tim Holtz Sparkle Texture Paste to add a tiny bit of shine and interest. I love the Tim Holtz Palette Knives because of the unique shape, it allows for you to be very precise when applying the paste.
I thought it might be fun to do a little bonus project and thought that this set would make the cutest little tag. I created the floral cluster in much of the same way as I did above, however, I used lighter colors from the ink pad sets listed above. I punched a hole in the top of the bow and threaded some twine through. This would be so cute strung on a package! I used the Pinkfresh Scallop Circle die set to create the border on the back. I plan on writing "To and From" on the pack and attaching to a Christmas gift in December! The sentiment banner is again from the Pinkfresh Basic Banners Christmas Stamps (coordinating die here).
I hope that these projects inspired you. I'm looking forward to a year of creating with ScrapbookPal! If you were inspired by these projects I would love for you to post them and tag me on instagram @ThePeppermintPost. Be back soon with more to share!
