Pinkfresh Studio | Songbirds on Branches

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Pinkfresh Studio today for the February 2022 Release Instagram Hop. All of the fun, including giveaways, is happening over there, so please be sure to head over to my Instagram account and Pinkfresh Studio's as well. I wanted to post over here on my blog too though, so that I could share more information on my projects.

Today I am using the beautiful Songbirds on Branches collection. This collection features a cling stamp, hot foil plate, stencils and die. These can be purchased separately, so you can mix and match as you like. I love that the sets are a whole item - so for example, the die cuts out all of the images in one, so you only need to run it through your die cutting machine once. So cool! 


For the card, I started off by foiling the Pinkfresh Studio Songbirds on Branches Hot Foil Plate on to Simon Says Stamp 120lb White Cardstock with Spellbinders Silver Glimmer Hot Foil Roll. To add colour to the images, I placed the Pinkfresh Studio Songbirds on Branches Stencils on top. There are four stencils, enabling you to colour in all of the images with ink blending. I used Pinkfresh Studio Premium Dye Ink Cube Sets in Morning Sky for the birds and Over the Hills for the leaves. I also used Soul of Provence for the flowers, which are coming up a little later!


The images were then die cut out using the Pinkfresh Studio Songbirds on Branches Die. I cut it again another two times just as is, so that I could pop the images up (so that I didn't have to use foam tape!). I die cut the largest of the Pinkfresh Studio Essentials Shaker Tags Dies twice (doubled up again for dimension) and adhered the branches and birds on top, using Bearly Art Glue. 


The tag was adhered to an A2 white card base with tape runner adhesive. I then stamped the sentiment from the Pinkfresh Studio Just a Hello Floral Stamp Set on to white cardstock with black ink. It was die cut out using the Pinkfresh Studio Just a Hello Floral Die and again, I popped it up on more die cuts before adhering to the card. To finish off, I added Pinkfresh Studio Glacier Jewels


When creating the card, I had leftover pieces that would create a whole panel if you wanted to. I couldn't let these go to waste, so I had to create a little tag with them! I die cut the smaller of the tags from the Pinkfresh Studio Essentials Shaker Tags Dies from white cardstock. The floral branches were then adhered on top, again popping them up and cutting off the excess in places. 


I took the sentiment from the Pinkfresh Studio Lily Frame Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the tag with tape runner adhesive. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tag and more Pinkfresh Studio Glacier Jewels

  1. These are stunning Michelle! The birds on a branch products were my favourite from the release and I love how you have used both here - on the card and the tag. You are right you couldn't possible let those pretty flowers not be used! The silver foiling is so pretty and soft, along with the gorgeous ink colours. I love the pops of black with the sentiments and also all the bling with the jewels. As always, you make everything shine! Gorgeous creations!
