Hey everyone. Today I’m participating in the My Sweet Petunia and Pink Fresh studio blog hop. There are amazingly talented people on this hop full of inspiration.
My cards today feature products from Pink Fresh Studio. Of course I would not have been able to create such beautiful cards without my handy Misti stamping tool. My first card I used the Take Pride stamp set and the Botanical Circle from Pink Fresh Studio. Using my Misti I double stamped the image to achieve a rich black image. Next I pulled out my Copics and colored pencils to fill in my flowers.
Once I was complete with the coloring I fussy cut out the image. I placed the Botanical Circle dies onto a piece of card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine to emboss the image onto to the card stock. Placing my floral image onto with foam dots for added dimension. Adhered this panel to a white card base ad added a few enamel dots using my nuvo drops.
My next card features the gorgeous Scripted Bold Sentiments 1 stamp set from Pink Fresh Studio. I pulled out my Misti to stamp the large hooray onto black card stock with versa mark ink. I sprinkled the sentiment with gold embossing powder and heat set it. Once completely heated, I fussy cut the sentiment out.
The background of my card was created using gold striped vellum paper. I think this makes a striking background for my sentiment. Die cutting the vellum and a black piece of cardstock with a stitched die finishes off the boarder of my panels. I popped up the sentiment and added a few nuvo drops to pull in the white from the card base.
My Sweet Petunia and Pink Fresh Studio are each giving away a $50 shopping spree. Make sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win. Winners will be announced on the My Sweet Petunia and Pink Fresh Studio blogs next Friday. Good luck everyone.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Beautiful cards, and fabulous sentiments. I’ve never seen either sentiment set, so thanks for highlighting them– gonna have to spend more time than I already do looking at PFS products. And I agree– the Misti has proven to be a worthwhile investment– couldn’t get even half the consistency or quality w/out it. Thanks so much for sharing your creative talents on the hop (and introducing me to some items I’ve clearly missed!). Take care and stay safe!

Okay.. at first glance I was so impressed with the precision of your gold embossing on the vellum. (Tee hee I understand). But the botanical emboss, that’s yours and terrific… I have those dies from PinkFresh and definately will be trying that! THANKS. This is the perfect stamp for the Misti… lots of bits that may need a second or more touch and done…perfection every time!
