Pinkfresh Studios: Striped Backgrounds

Hi friends! I have two cards Pinkfresh cards to share today, featuring the Color Block Diagonal Stripes Die. I love black and white stripe pattern papers, so I thought I would just make my own.

I die-cut a panel of black card stock, and made two backgrounds with it. I used every other stripe for each card. I incorporated more stripes for each card, using watercolors, and dry embossing. Let’s start with the Hugs And Good Vibes card.

I made a watercolored stripe background using Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors. I used a wide flat paintbrush to make the stripes, drying the paper before moving onto the next color. Once I was done, I white heat-embossed the sentiment, and trimmed the panel with Essentials: Ornate Banner die. I also die-cut an Ornate Banner frame for the panel, and made a pretty pink Artistic Bow.

I made the second bow in the Artistic Bows Die set for my next card.

For a second element of stripes for this card, I dry-embossed white card stock, using the Color Block Diagonal Stripes die. I followed the directions on my die-cut machine to do this. I die-cut the embossed card stock with the Ornate Banner die, and made another white frame. I added a stamped Modern Layered Bouquet, and a die-cut Phrase Builder- Hello.

I hope I have helped with ideas on making striped backgrounds. That’s all that I have for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Love that black and white… really makes the focus pop. I think the artistic bows for this release are genius and look so amazing. Maybe on the list for my next order. Lovely job, hope all is well for you and yours!

  2. Love your designs using these very creative products…unfortunately they sold out really quickly but was still able to buy a few products from SSS so was able to buy a few of these amazing products but still hoping to win something so I can get more…I WANT THEM ALL LOL!

  3. Two lovely cards. Interesting using the black and white background. Loved how you got your water color stripes on the first card. They looked so even. Guess part of that was drying between each application. Just great and thanks for sharing your talents with us!
