Hi everyone! As a creative ambassador for Pinkfresh Studio, I look forward to sharing inspiration with all of you! Today is a new release day and they have a bunch of fabulous new products that you can see here!
I have 3 fun cards to share with you using some of the new products that have just been released. I love how easily the washi makes a beautiful card, but I also love playing with the stencils and stamps too! I hope you find these fun and inspiring! Be sure to read to the end of this post where you will find giveaway details, and where to hop next to be inspired!

For this Congratulation card, I used the new Celebrate Washi and coordinating die to cut out the cake and balloons. It is so beautifully watercolored with a touch of gold foil!
I then gold embossed the sentiment “Congrats” from the new Celebrate Washi stamp set, and die cut it. Whenever I do ANY embossing, I prep the surface using the Cottontail Embossing Powder Tool so I don’t get any stray bits anywhere and I get a nice smooth emboss.
For the background I die cut the Hearts and Stars Coverplate out of white cardstock, and overlayed it onto some gold metallic cardstock.
For this next set of cards, I used the Celebrate Washi stamp set, and then the Celebrate Washi Stencils to ink blend the colors with Pinkfresh Inks onto Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I have all the Pinkfresh mini ink cubes, and the mini Ink Stand for those makes it so easy and holds them in place to inkblend with the little cubes.
Anytime I am using stencils, I use the Wendy Vecchi Stay-tion to hold my stencils in place, and simply move them when needed. When ink blending I love the Simon Says Stamp blending brushes, which I store in a Layer Cake Brush Caddie.
The reason why I did this on Distress Watercolor Cardstock is so that I could then go in with Distress Watercolor Pencils, and add more shadow on the balloons. I did this by scribbling on some of the pencils, and then brushing it, and blending it out with a wet paintbrush. I love how this turned out, the water-based inks also reacted a bit to the water, and it is so pretty!
If you would like to see some more projects I have created with Distress Watercolor Pencils, you can here. I have an online class all about Distress Watercolor Pencils – see more details here.
I then added a touch of Prisma glitter with a Quickie Glue pen, and die-cut them out. For the background on both cards, I used the Floral Tiles coverplate cut out of white cardstock. I then added a sprinkle of jewels in a variety of colors that mimic the balloons.
Hope these cards have inspired you with some of the new Pinkfresh Studio release!
