Hi and welcome back to my blog!
Today’s post is an ode to one of my favorite companies: Pinkfresh Studio. Not only are they a fabulous company to work with, the people behind it are truly kind and have big hearts.
Pinkfresh is known for their innovative washi tapes with coordinating diecuts, layering stencils and stamps. Check out the WASHI COLLECTION here if you are not familiar with it yet. Later this month, the Sunflower Washi set, complete with washi, stamps, diecuts and layering stencils, were going to be released, but the release date has been moved forward and these are now available. For a good cause too!
Here is the message from Pinkfresh Studio: We are gravely concerned for children in Ukraine, who might be caught in the middle of armed conflict, forced to flee their homes and exposed to injury, hunger and sub-zero temperatures. 100% net profits from this product (from the month of March) will be donated to Save The Children organization. We hope that you help us support this cause.
All affiliate earnings have been suspended on this set for the month of March so that ALL net profits go to charity, and to be honest, none of us mind. It’s heartwarming knowing that your purchase will support a wonderful cause AND support your creativity.
I have made a few cards with this gorgeous set, illustrated by the talented Emily Midgett, and I have a couple of reels too, but in this post I’m only going to share the one you can see above.
To add a Ukrainian element to the card I used Storm ink to ink blend over the Geo Tiles background, I did leave the bottom white, but the foiling is gold. I have used the same Storm ink and also Sweet Mustard to stamp up ‘Never Stop’ from the Chrysanthemum Slimline set in those colours. This was then cut out with the coordinating diecut, and also another two, to make sturdy pieces.
I did add some bling in Sunshine and Sapphire, on the matching side on the card. I might have gone a bit over the top, and I have a great tool from Studio Katia, called a Embellishment Wand that makes picking up those jewels. These are added with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive, and I used this on the leaves and the sentiment too. The big flower piece was adhered with foam tape, to add some dimension.
That’s it from me for today, thank you so much for stopping by!
There are some affiliate links in this post, but the links to the Sunflower Washi set are not affiliate, they are just direct links. Thank you so much for supporting both myself, Pinkfresh, Save The Children and the people affected by this war.
Lots of love, and big hugs, from Erica
