Picket Fence Studios May Release


It's the 14th, which means it's time for a new release from Picket Fence Studios.  If you like to color, there are so many fun new stamp sets this month  I'm excited to share my samples with you.  But, first, here is a quick peek of the entire release.


As always, I have several cards to share with you, today, using these new products.  All of the products used in these cards will be listed at the bottom of this post, for reference. 

Card #1 | The Cheese to my Burger

I began this card, by stamping the hamburger from the Dad's Day Stamp Set, in Barely There Amalgam Ink, onto Sweet Sentiment Coloring Paper.  I colored in the image using Prismacolor pencils and a white gel pen.  Once finished, I trimmed the panel down, and set it aside.

I stamped, and white heat embossed, the sentiment from the stamp set, onto a strip of Pitch Black card stock.  I also stamped a panel of white card stock with the Gingham Stamp, in Rich Coral Ink.  Everything was layered together, and I tied a bit of Candy Apple Twine around the Gingham Panel, before adhering the card front to a white card base, using foam tape.

Card #2 | Paradise Created

For this card, I stamped one of the flower images from the Bird of Paradise Flowers Stamp Set, Black Hybrid Ink, onto the Sweet Sentiment Coloring Paper.   I colored the image in with my Prismacolor pencils, and then fussy cut the image out.  I then, stamped a panel of Fresh Forest card stock, with the Exotic Leaves Stamp, using Fresh Forest Ink.  I die cut that panel using a circle die.

To create the card background, I first lined everything up on a top folding white card base, in my MISTI.  I stamped the sentiment, from the Birds of Paradise Flowers Stamp Set, in the black ink, and then sprinkled a little Gold Silk over the white card front.  I layered on the leaves background, and floral image using foam tape.

Card #3 | Gold & Gray Roses

I began this card, by repeatedly stamping the A Rose Stamp onto River Stone card stock in Versamark Ink.  Then I heat embossed the roses in gold.  I also stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Fancy Sentiments Stamp Set, onto Pitch Black card stock.

I fussy cut out the embossed roses, and laid them out on a card front cut from Pale Rose card stock.  When I found the arrangement I liked, I adhered the roses down using a bit of liquid glue.  Then I trimmed the overhanging pieces away.  I used just a couple of gray Prismacolor pencils to add shading to the roses, before adhering the sentiment strip with foam tape.  I matted the card front onto another piece of the Pitch Black card stock, before adding that to a white card base..  A few scattered Fashion Gold pieces finished the card.

Card #4 | Seriously, No

This card began by stamping the Lexi Girl Stamp, in Barely There Amalgam Ink, onto coloring paper.  I colored the image in using colored pencils, and used a white gel pen and black pen to add the final details.  I cut the image out using the coordinating die, then set this aside.

The sentiment is from the Seriously, Literally Stamp Set.  I stamped the "omg. no." in Black Hybrid Ink, by masking off the rest of the sentiment while inking my stamp.  I then removed the mask to stamp onto white card stock.  I cleaned the stamp, then masked off that portion, to stamp the rest of the sentiments in Candy Apple ink.  Then I die cut the oval shape.  I added my sentiment panel, and colored image to a Blue Lagoon card front, that I had embossed lines into for some detail.  Then I attached the card front to a white card base.

Card #5 | Shell in Your Pocket

This card is very quick.  I stamped the image and sentiment from the Nautilus Shell Scene Stamp Set, in Black Hybrid Ink, onto a card front.  Then, I colored in the image with Prismacolor pencils.

I matted the colored panel onto a piece of Oatmeal Cookie card stock, before adding the card front to a white card base.

Card #6 | Wedding Cake

For this final card, I stamped the cake image from the To the Lovely Couple, onto Tin Pail card stock, using Black Hybrid Ink.  I, again, used Prismacolor pencils to color in the image, then stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink, and gold heat embossed it.

I felt as if the card panel needed a little something more, so I added some Whip Cream Ink through the Floral Damask Stencil, using a foam dauber.  This allowed me to be more precise in working around the areas that were already stamped.  Once the ink had dried, I added a small strip of gold foiled card stock to the right edge of the card front, before adhering it to a white card base.

These new stamps are quite fun - and really gave my colored pencils a workout this month!  I hope you've found some inspiration, and perhaps a few new stamps to add to your stash.
