CardMaynia, Challenges, Class projects

Day 31 of CardMaynia

My colour choices for one of the classes at Create and Connect by Pinkfresh Studio. This uses the Whimsical Blooms set, exclusive to the event. And that is the last day of my CardMaynia challenge completed – a new card every day in May! What a great card to finish with!

I’m also entering this card into the Just Us Girls challenge #634 for this week, the TGIF Challenge #370, and The Paper Players tic-tac-toe challenge PP593 (centre column using embossing, floral, and rhinestones, pearls or dots).

Crop & Create Delivered – Pinkfresh Studio

The third Sunday class was with Laura Bassen and Pinkfresh Studio – I was really looking forward to this class, as I’d totally fallen in love with the blue card we’d seen in the sneak peeks (I may or may not have since ordered more blue inks since the class). I wasn’t disappointed, these are stunners, and it was really fun seeing how one set of stencils can be used in multiple ways. This was the first time I’d used Pinkfresh products, and another one that’s now on my wishlist for more items in the future.

Some things I loved about this class:

  • The beautiful stamp set is gorgeous on its own but using stencils to colour the images is awesome fun.
  • I love the font style and versatile sentiments in the stencils along with the coordinating dies.
  • I really love he soft pastel look of the projects which is totally different to my usual style – and I ADORE the monochrome blue version, what a stunner!

    Altenew – Rose Quartz, Sea Breeze
    Gina K Designs – Sweet Mango, Lemon Drop, Sea Glass (shading on the sentiment)
