Picket Fence Studios February Release

Hello & Happy ♥ Day!

Today is super exciting for me.  It's release day for Picket Fence Studios, and my first release as an official member of their design team!  I have SIX cards to share with you today, featuring these new products, so lets jump right into this fun release!

Picket Fence Studios, Watercolor Trees and Bushes, Ink Blending, Distress Oxide Inks, life Changing Blending Brush, Sunset card

The first card I'm sharing today was created with the Watercolor Trees and Bushes Stamp Set.   I used Distress Oxides to blend together a background image, and then stamped my trees and shrubs with Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid Ink Pad.  The top portion of the background was splattered with some sparkle, before the sentiment was heat embossed.

Picket Fence Studios, Ink Blending, Distress Ink, Stenciling, Life Changing Blending Brush, Heat Embossing, Funky Leaves Stencil, Favorite Notification Stamps

The second card today, was created by ink blending Distress Inks through the Funky Leaves Stencil.  I faded the inks towards the bottom of the card front, so that the very bottom had no ink.  Then I heat embossed a sentiment from the Favorite Notification stamp set.

Picket Fence Studios, dry embossing, embossing technique, stencil, heat embossing, wedding card, handmade card, hand stamped card

Using another stencil, I created the third card.  This time, I dry embossed the Fancy Flourishes Stencil  onto white card stock.  Then I stamped, and heat embossed, a sentiment from the Fancy Sentiments Stamp Set onto a piece of vellum to overlay the background.  A few Fashion Gold pieces were added to finish off this quick and easy wedding card.

Picket Fence Studios, Rainbow Stamping, Sentiments as Background, Repeat Stamping, Hello Card, Any Occasion

This colorful hello card, also features the Fancy Sentiments Stamp Set.  I stamped the hello in different colors of True Color Fusion Ink, and then stamped a small sentiment from the Tightening Her Bra Strap Stamp Set (this set has a coordinating set of dies), in black ink onto River Stone card stock - which was also used to mat the card front.  A few rhinestones finished this card.

Picket Fence Studios, Work Card, Career Card, Retirement Card, Blueprint Sketch, Office

This card was inspired by the fact that, when I received these stamps, the first thing I thought - before I even actually processed that the image was an office sketch - was that it was a blueprint.  So the image in the Here is Where I Work Stamp Set, was stamped and white heat embossed onto a piece of Huckleberry Fusion card stock.  Then, I took a white pencil and my T-square ruler, and drew lines every half inch to create the grid look.  It took a bit to choose a sentiment, because I really wanted to use one of the snarky ones from the Work Sucks Stamp Set, but in the end I chose one from the initial set.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto Black Licorice card stock.

Picket Fence Studios, Coffee, Valentine, Love, Handstamped card, diy card, coffee sleeve, corrugated stock, coffee rings, Paper Glaze

The final card, gets a portion of it's sentiment from the Favorite Notification Stamp Set, previously mentioned.  When I saw the Coffee Word Die (Shown below is also the Hello Word Die which is also new this month) I knew I had to combine these sentiments.  I have an arrhythmia, which sometimes doesn't like it when I am over-caffienated.  Me and my weird humor just HAD to use that!  The background was created by first dipping the rim of a shot glass into the Brown Dahlia Paper Glaze, and placing it onto the paper with a slight twist of the wrist to smudge it.   Then I put a small amount of paper glaze into a pallet, and mixed it with water so that I could splatter it across the card front, and create some "puddles".  I die cut the sentiment from Dark Roast card stock, and Corrugated Stock.  I also die cut a heart from Rich Coral card stock.  The smaller sentiment was white heat embossed on the same Dark Roast card stock.

I hope you enjoyed the cards I shared with you today.  This release was fun to work with, my brain was spinning with ideas.

Thanks for stopping by!
