Pinkfresh Studio Design Team Line Up & Escape the Ordinary Blog Hop!




Hello and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Design Team Line Up & Escape the Ordinary Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the very awesome Amanda-Jayne Baldwin's blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Pinkfresh Studio Blog!

Leave a comment as you hop along for a chance to win!  One winner will receive the Escape the Ordinary Collection:



and another winner will receive a Stamp & Die Prize Package worth over $100.00!


The winners will be randomly selected and the requirement is that you leave a comment on each Blog in the Hop!

I'm so excited to be a part of this team and am thoroughly grateful for the experience.  Let's get started, shall we?  I have two projects to share today, first up is a card that uses the Unicorn Dreams stamp set:


I wanted to give the card a 'dreamy look' so for the background I used the smooshing technique with a couple of the Distress Oxide inks.  To help ground the Unicorn, I did use just the Twisted Citron on a separate panel for her to stand on.


I also tried to coordinate the colors that were already on the Felicity Phrase Sticker that I used.

Next up is a card that I designed using the Escape the Ordinary stamp set + coordinating die:


I gotta tell you, the way that Pinkfresh Studio coordinates their stamps + dies is truly genius.  I started off with an oxide ink galaxy panel that I pre-designed and dried thoroughly.  I stamped some of the images on the panel and heat embossed them in gold.  I tucked in that awesome circle die cut from the Ephemera Pack with Foil Accents.


It was perfect since it has a matte black background just like my galaxy panel!

That's it for me, up next is the wonderful Beata Valint!

In case you get lost along the way, the hop listing is below!

Happy Hopping!
