Picket Fence Studios December Release


It's the 14th of the month, which means it's time for a new release from Picket Fence Studios.  Once again, I have several cards to share with you featuring a variety of the new products. As always, I want to give you a quick peek of the entire release before we dive into the cards. (All of the supplies used on the individual cards, will be listed at the bottom of the post, for reference.)

Card #1 | Big Hugs

For this card, I began by using the Corner Sun Stencil, and blending some Antique Linen, and Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Inks onto a piece of White Card Stock using a Life Changing Blender Brush.  I did not blend all the way to the edges of the stencil, as I wanted the rays to soften and fade away.  Then I removed the stencil, and used the ink that was left on the brushes to blend away the harsh lines where I wanted the rays to end.  

I switched to the Slimline Cloud Coverage Stencil and began blending Carved Pumpkin, Abandoned Coral, Wilted Violet, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks in layers.  I used the ink left on the brush from the previous color right at the base of the next layer, to help keep the color changes cohesive.  Once the ink blending was done, I splattered the card front with some water droplets, along with some Nuvo Shimmer Pen

Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the More for A Walk in the Park Stamp Set, along with the grass image from the A2 Tall Grass and Waves with Tiles and Wood Floors Stamp Set, using my MISTI, and Black Hybrid Ink. The card front was trimmed to size, and adhered to a white card base.  

Card #2 | A Walk in the Park

I began this card with a panel of Tin Pail Card Stock.  I stamped several of the leaves images from the Leaves for Flowers Stamp Set, around the edge of the paper, using Tin Pail Ink, and River Stone Ink.  Then, on a scrap piece of the same card stock, I stamped and white heat embossed additional leaves, and then die cut them using the Coordinating Die Set.   The die cuts were adhered around the card front with foam tape, and then the excess was trimmed.

Using two of the circle dies from the Slimline Die Cutting System, I cut a circle from the card front, and then cut the picket fence circle from White Card Stock.  I trimmed the white piece around the edges, so that I could adhere it behind the gray panel.  

On a piece of white card stock, I stamped the image from the A Walk in the Park Stamp Set, and then colored it in using Prismacolor Pencils.  A sentiment from the same stamp set was added to the card front, and then all of the pieces were layered together and adhered to a white card base.  

Card #3 | HB2U

For this card, I started with a panel of white card stock.  I layered the Burst of Sun Stencil  over the top of that, and used a Life Changing Blender Brush  to blend Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink onto the card stock, then I splattered a little water on top.  On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped the image from the Do Good Recklessly Stamp Set, in Black Hybrid InkI colored in the image with a few Copic Markers

Once the card front was dry from the water splatter, I stamped the "HB2U" from the stamp set in Catalina Splash Ink, and stamped and white heat embossed the additional sentiment onto black card stock.  I layered the pieces together, and matted the card front with Catalina Splash Card Stock, before adhering it to a white card base.  

Card #4 | Do Good Recklessly

I began this card, by ink blending Bundled Sage, and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Inks onto a piece of white card stock, using a Life Changing Blender BrushOnce I was happy with the blend, I splattered some water, and a bit of gold shimmer from a Midas Touch Nuvo Shimmer Pen onto the background.  

Once the panel was dry, I stamped a few of the images from the Leaves for Flowers Stamp Set onto the bottom portion of the card - first in Denim Days Ink, and then again in Versamark Ink so that I could gold heat emboss them.  The sentiment from the Do Good Recklessly Stamp Set was also gold heat embossed.  

The completed card front was matted with Denim Days Card Stock,  and adhered to a white card base. 

Card #5 | Have Faith

This final card began with two pieces of white card stock.  One, was dry embossed using the Slimline Waves Stencil, and the other was ink blended using the same stencil.  The ink blending was done with a Life Changing Blender Brush, and Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks.  Once the blending was done, I sprinkled the panel with water and Nuvo Shimmer Pen.  While that dried, I also sprinkled the embossed panel with some Cool Pool Silk.  

On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped a couple of the images from the Swim in the Sea Stamp Set, and colored them in with Prismacolor Pencils.  I die cut the images with the Coordinating DieI also stamped and white heat embossed one of the sentiments from the set onto Black Card Stock.  While the die machine was out, I cut three circles from the ink blended panel using a die from the Slimline Die Cutting System.  

Finally, I layered up all of my pieces, and matted the panel with a piece of Denim Days Card Stock.  I attached the card front to a white card base, and then finished the card off with Moonshine Sequins, and Spiked Ocean Water Sequins.
