Monday Favorites - Birthday Stamps with Pinkfresh, Neat and Tangled, and Altenew

Hey friends! Double the fun today! It's my birthday, and it's also time for another installment of 

MONDAY FAVORITES

 So excited to share because for my bday, I received a shower of stamps from my sweet hunny! 


I've played with a few of these already so they've been on my list for a while, and I was sooo excited to open my bday gift and see these! I tell ya - feeling pretty spoiled. I don't even know how he pulled this off - because I was tracking these goodies in my cart. No note, no dropping hints...nada! Ok maybe just on the blog..but I don't think he frequents that often! Sneaky, sneaky, he is. But oh-so-incredibly-thoughtful! 

Obvs these are current favorites so I'm sharing them with you all!  Here they are.






And dies.
You can see a card made with this set here and here.


I am itching to ink these up and play with a bit of watercolor.







I can't wait to share sooo many cards in the weeks to come with these beauties, so stay tuned! Here is  just one for now.



For this card, I used the gorgeous Fleur 1 stamps from Pinkfresh Studio. I am sooo happy to have this stamp set in my collection finally! Love it to bits.

I used a combination of colors and papers for this card for a multi-layered effect and to show off how fun these pretty florals can be when stamped in different ways!


To start, I stamped a flower on each corner of the cardstock base, and embossed it in white.
I used a soft pink watercolor wash to add some color around the flowers, and a bit more concentrated color to the petals themselves.
I used a scalloped oval die to cut out the center of the card base.
At the top of the card, I added a metallic rose gold ribbon, and a sequin flower, as well as a few Nuvo Crystal Drops in white.

To back the card, I used a striped pink pattern, which I overlayed with a heart printed vellum. I really wanted to use the pretty florals with a heap of color but without all the florals being watercolored, so I stamped an oval floral design onto the vellum, in two different shades of embossing powder - Ranger Leaf Green and  Ranger Pink. I used a white pen to color alternating bits of leaves and petals with an opaque fill. I ran out of my favorite white pen, so I used an alternative, and it's just a wee tad more scratchy. So I'll be going back to my Signo pen! It's a lot more dramatic in person and I love the way it looks!


To the center of the card, I added a die-cut heart, cut using PTI's Limitless Layers: Stitched Hearts, speckled with Stampendous Rose Gold Embossing Enamel - which is soooo pretty and fun to use! I also added another vellum stitched heart frame, cut using the same die.

I added a stamped and embossed sentiment using an older PTI wedding set as well as the Pinkfresh
Sweet Treats stamp set.

I also added another sequin flower as well as a few Queen and Co posies.


So much fun playing with these! I'll also be featuring more cards with these gorgeous stamps in the weeks to come.

Thanks for visiting!
