Thanks for lifting my spirits

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful week! Life is pretty darn good here in southwestern Colorado! We are having some gorgeous weather, our feline rescues are all healthy, and we are able to enjoy our hobbies. I’ve popped in this morning to share a pretty thank you card that I created to enter into the Pinkfresh Studio May 2022 Challenge – Anything Spring! I started this card with a different background a couple weeks ago and just wasn’t happy with it, so it sat on my desk until yesterday afternoon when the lightbulb came on and I ran with a totally different idea. I used a variety of Pinkfresh Studio products – the Painted Peony Mix Washi Tape and Die for the focal image, the Fancy Script Words Hot Foil Plate and Die for the front sentiment, and the Hibiscus stamp set for the inside sentiment! I think this captures the Spring theme pretty well, and I used four of the five gorgeous colors in the inspiration photo.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop Tone Cotton Candy cardstock and 80# Solar White cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner of each. I die cut a rope background from 110# Solar White cardstock and adhered it to the lighter weight white cardstock panel with Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive, using a brayer to get good adhesion, and trimming the excess around all four edges. I sprayed Tattered Angels Gold Glimmer Mist on the background panel, and adhered it to the Cotton Candy panel and then to the card base.

I had previously created the flower cluster using the Pinkfresh Studio Painted Peony Mix Washi Tape and Die with 110# Solar White cardstock, so I adhered that to the background. Using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, a scrap of 110# Solar White cardstock and a roll of gold foil, I created the front sentiment using the Pinkfresh Studio Fancy Script Words Hot Foil Plate and Die (three layers thick) and adhered it to the card front. The finishing touch was adding several Kat Scrappiness gold pearls.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Cotton Candy cardstock and a die cut flower from the Pinkfresh Studio Painted Peony Mix Washi Tape. I stamped the sentiment in Catherine Pooler Pink Champagne ink and layered the panel on Cotton Candy cardstock.

And one more look… so loving how this turned out! I’m totally in love with all of the Pinkfresh Studio Washi Tape and Die bundles! The gold is such an elegant touch and you just can’t go wrong!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  2. Glad all is well with you! Life’s good here too, my results were all ok – yay! Now the only problem I have is with the internet going off which is not the end of the world all things considered (smile!). Those flowers look so pretty and I love the touches of gold 😀. Happy wishes! Hugs Jo x
