Pinkfresh Studio design team line-up and Escape the Ordinary blog hop

Hi there!



I'm so happy to be able to announce that I will be joining the Pinkfresh Studio team. I love their designs, especially how innovative and whimsical they are.

I created 2 cards to show you today. The first one uses my favorite set of their current release, Forest Friends. This set alone convinced me to say yes when Kinnari asked me to join their team!

I used the matching die to create the layered scene, and stamped each image into its pre-designed spot.  I also stamped the images separately, and used scissors to cut them out, to give even more dimension.

To finish off, I used copic markers to add greenery and tree branch definition. The little mushrooms that I added beside the sentiment come from another set, called Unicorn Dreams.

I used Unicorn Dreams to create my 2nd card:

I love how big this unicorn is! She covers the entire card-front, making figuring out a design so much easier.

For a different look, I wiped off the ink on all of the florals inside the unicorn's body and kept her simpler. That allowed me to add the sentiment medallion right on top of the unicorn without it looking too busy.

I stamped and die-cut all kinds of florals included in the set and set them at her feet.

Now, onto the fun part! There is a huge GIVEAWAY happening!  Leave a comment on each of blogs along the hop for a chance to win the entire Escape the Ordinary collection:


and another winner will claim the entire set of stamps and dies, valued at over 100$:
