Hello Love


Hello crafty friends,


I am over on the Pinkfresh Studio card blog today sharing this beauty.


For my card design I wanted to do a blending technique but wanted to demonstrate that you can ink blending any colours you wish, and stamp over the top to get amazing results!

I chose a soft palette for my base colours using Pinkfresh Studio's Peach Fuzz, Coral Reef and Aquamarine. It really is just a case of randomly having a piece of quality cover white cardstock and then blend randomly between the colours chosen. If it looks a bit patchy, do not worry as the Pinkfresh Studio ink settles into the cardstock and smooths out.

When you have finished ink blending, make sure all the ink is dry.

For this to look really effective behind a stamp you want to choose a stamp that has some detail to it. For my card I chose the beautiful Floral Border that was released in December 2022. It has larger and smaller flowers which would bring out all the different colour tones behind it.

When the ink blending is fully dry, I used Pinkfresh Studio's Detail Black Ink and clear embossing powder to stamp on top of the blended cardstock. Then, heat dried it.

When done, I used the co-ordinating die to cut it out. It looked fabulous even if I do say so myself!

I decided on bringing out the Coral Reef colour for my background and die cut some co-ordinating cardstock using the ever faithful, Sparkling Diamonds Stand Alone Cut.

That wonderful long sentiment is from the Charming Floral Border Stamp set which I heat embossed on some of the left over ink blended cardstock.

To finish, I added the cute die cut Hello and some Pinkfresh Studio Iridescent Drops. I did try some of the coloured glitter drops, but they just didn't seems to work. In these cases I find the Iridescent Drops are perfect!


As always with my blog posts, I have a reel that will get shared over on the Pinkfresh Studio Instagram account, so keep and eye out for that.


Until next time friends....
