Pinkfresh Studio October Release Blog Hop

You’ve all waited so incredibly patiently for 3 months, and it’s finally here, the Pinkfresh Studio October Release!! This release is packed with all sorts of yummy florals and beautiful dies, that you’re heart will feel pitter patter! Today, I’ll be showcasing the Folk Mandala stamp and die set in card.

As clean and simple as this card may appear, it was a coloring intensive card as I got quite ambitious! I stamped the folk mandala in each corner of the card in a dark brown hybrid ink, then colored it with copic markers. It may have taken awhile, but the result were beautiful.

I can see this working out to be a great one layer card, but I am addicted to dimension, so I had to add just a little bit with the sentiment. The folk mandala dies include this beautiful ‘just a note’ sentiment die. I die cut and added 4 layers of it, with the top layer being an ink blended piece with Worn Lipstick and Antique Linen distress oxide inks. I also used the Worn Lipstick ink to add a touch of splatter to the card.

This is just perfect for an every day kind of card to send!
