Fun with Pinkfresh Acetates #1 - EXTRA SPECIAL

It can be tough for a cat person to find that special someone who is compatible!!!  lol....

Hi, Friends.......

What's more fun for us cardmakers than playing with some items from a company you've never tried out before??? Today it is Pinkfresh Studio for me. About a year ago, the sweet and generous Heather Hoffman sent me several packages of super-cute Pinkfresh items in a prize. (THANKS, Heather!!)  I had admired their products for some time and finally got them out when I saw a fun challenge on their blog where you can choose from any of their previous challenges to play! Well....I couldn't stop once I started and ended up with THREE cards!! 😎

I also still had in my stash a stack of these leftover fun watercolor bubble wrap backgrounds on photo paper from a long ago challenge by the lovely Darnell Knauss. Do any of the rest of you still have some of these hibernating in your stash??? I have them in my active box, but hadn't found just the right use for them yet. They are PERFECT for combining with the acetates which let the bright colors show through! LOVE!!!

For this card I snagged some colors from the December 2018 Pinkfresh Challenge:

Supplies used include:
Pinkfresh Studio - The Mix No. 1 Acetate Tags (retired)
Pinkfresh Studio - Life Noted Acetate Die Cut Words (retired)
Studio Katia - Clear Round Drops Mix
Tombow - Mono Aqua Liquid Glue for attaching those transparent acetates!
Background: glossy photo paper and distress inks

Hope you liked this bright and cheery card! I had so much fun making it. Be sure to be watching soon for the other two cards I made with these supplies. That's all for now.

Hope everyone is staying safe in the winter storms that are blanketing much of the country lately. We are slipping and sliding around here....but mostly in our own driveway and lane!! The roads (so far) are fine. It's just a matter of getting up TO the roads!! lol...

  12. Oooh, how fun! I think I need to get some of that Mono Aqua liquid glue to adhere acetate because I do have some acetate embellishments but never know how to attach them without the glue showing. This is like a party in a card!
