Hi there! Pinkfresh Studio’s October Release is now available, and it’s full of absolutely stunning new washi tape designs! I absolutely adore the versatility of the Pinkfresh Washi Tape product suites, because you can do as much or as little work as you want with each of the different components… the possibilities are endless! Don’t feel like watercoloring? Use the stencils to add lots of vibrant color to your stamped images! Don’t feel like stamping at all? Use the washi tape! And the best part is… one die set coordinates with all of the products, so die cutting is super quick and simple with one pass through your die cut machine! I have a slimline card with some wildflowers exploding out from behind the greeting, so let’s get started with the details!
Today’s project features the stunning new Chrysanthemum Washi Tape and Coordinating Dies. The beautiful watercoloring in the Chrysanthemum Washi Tape is a beautiful, loose style, one that I have not been able to achieve in my own watercoloring, so being able to have such lovely images at my finger tips is such fun! I first adhered a couple of the full image sets onto some white cardstock, using an old gift card to make sure that it was adhered snugly and that there were no air bubbles, then used the Coordinating Dies to die cut all of the images lickety split.
I wanted to create a fun textured background for one of the greetings included in the stamp set (for which there are also coordinating dies!), so I die cut one of the Nested Hexagons from some bright white cardstock, then ran the die cut hexagon through my die cut machine once again with the Floral Tiles Cover Plate die. This adds some subtle texture to the background of my sentiment die cut very quickly and easily! I also die cut a white frame using the same size and slightly smaller Nested Hexagons dies, which I popped up using foam adhesive to add extra dimension and texture. I heat embossed a greeting from the Chrysanthemum Stamp Set onto some white cardstock, then cut it with the coordinating die. I popped it up in the center of my textured hexagon die cut using some more foam adhesive.
To assemble the card, I used some slightly thinner foam adhesive (I’ll link the specific adhesive below) to pop up the die cut frame in the center of a slimline card base, then arranged my die cut washi tape chrysanthemum flowers so that they were popping out from behind the framed greeting. I adhered them using some more of the thinner foam tape and liquid adhesive. The thinner foam tape for the frame provided just enough height that I could easily slip the die cuts beneath for a quick arrangement. The final touch was to add a few Butterscotch Glitter Drops to coordinate with my metallic embossing powder on the greeting!
Well, that’s all for my project today!
