Picket Fence Studios April Release


It's the 14th of the month, which means it's time for a new release from Picket Fence Studios.  I have multiple cards to share with you today, so, let's take 
a quick peek of the entire release before we dive into the cards. This month there are some fun floral stamps, another sentiment set from the "fancy" line, slimline word dies, and Slimline Die Cutting System parts.  (All of the supplies used on the individual cards, will be listed at the bottom of the post, for reference.) If the list below is not visible in your browser, please click here to view it.  

Card #1 | Kindness Matters 

Starting with a very simple, but pretty card, this card began with a panel of Honeysuckle card stock.  I stamped the Beautiful Girls Wreath Stamp in Honeysuckle Ink  so that it was offset on the right side of the panel.  Then, I used a few different pink Prismacolor Pencils to shade in the image slightly.  

The sentiment is from the Fancy Daily Sentiments Stamp Set (this set does have a coordinating die that I did not use as part of this card).  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark Ink, and heat embossed in gold.  

Once finished, and trimmed to size, I added the card front to a card base made from heavyweight white card stock.  Then added a few scattered Moonshine Sequins.  

Card #2 | Dance On

I began this card with a panel of black card stock.  Using my Life Changing Blender Brushes, I applied Distress Oxide Inks (Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, Kitsch Flamingo, Antique Linen, and Chipped Sapphire) to the card front.  I splattered the panel with a bit of watered down white watercolor paint, then some Nuvo Shimmer ink.  I set that panel aside.  

On a piece of white card stock, I stamped the image from the Dance On Stamp Set, in Black Hybrid Ink.  I used a few light gray Prismacolor Pencils to shade the image, using the lines in the stamp as a guide.  Once shaded, I fussy cut out the image using shears and a craft knife.  I adhered the image to the panel with liquid glue, and trimmed the excess off of the edge.  

In the top corner, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set, in Versamark Ink, and white heat embossed it.  

Finally, I adhered the panel to a card base made from white heavyweight card stock.  

Card #3 | Finds a Good Friend

This card began by adhering the English Brick Wall Stencil to a white panel of card stock.  Using a Life Changing Blender Brush, I blended Crackling Campfire Distress Oxide Ink through the stencil.  Then, using a smaller brush, I added a bit of Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink to areas.  I used Painter's tape, to reveal a small "strip" of card stock above the stencil, and blended Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Inks to form the top of the wall.  Once I removed the stencil, I added a little Hickory Smoke Ink to the revealed grout lines to add some shading.  

I taped off the inked portion, and used the Slim Line Cloud Coverage Stencil, to create the clouds on the top of the card front.  I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink on with a Life Changing Blender Brush, and rotated the stencil on each level to change the pattern.  

On white card stock, I stamped two of the cat images from the Cats are Family Stamp Set, using Black Hybrid Ink.  I also stamped the sentiment onto the inked panel, with the same ink.  Using Prismacolor Pencils, I colored in the cat images, and added some detail to the brick wall created earlier.  Then, I used the Cats Are Family Coordinating Dies to cut the cat images out.  The cat images were adhered to the card front using foam tape, and then the card front was attached to a white card base made from heavyweight white card stock.  

Card #4 | A Nice Day 

For this card, I began by stamping the image from the Wild Daisies Stamp Set, in Black Hybrid Ink, onto Parsley Card Stock.   Using Prismacolor Pencils, I colore in the image.  

I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in Versamark Ink , and gold heat embossed it.  

The card front was then attached to a card base made from heavyweight white card stock.  

Card #5 | Happy Birthday

This card began by blending Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire, Distress Oxide Inks onto a panel of white card stock.  Once I was happy with the blend, I splattered a little Nuvo Shimmer ink over the ink blending, and set that panel aside.  

I die cut a piece of white card stock, using one of the frames from the Scallop Framed Slim Line Die Cutting System Set.  Then, I die cut the Happy Birthday Word Die from the center of that scalloped panel.  I used foam tape to adhere the panel, along with the negative bits from the word die over the ink blended panel.  Then I attached the panel to a white slimline card base, made from heavyweight card stock.  I adhered a scattering of sequins from the Shark Bite Sequin Mix to the card front.  

This card was finished on the inside.  For the upper panel, I adhered the Happy Birthday Word Die cut that I made from the card front.  Then, I stamped the lower panel with a sentiment from the Inside Quotes - Birthday Stamp Set, in Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. 

That's it for today's new Picket Fence Studios Release.  All of the supplies used in the cards today, are listed below.  I had a lot of fun making these this month, and used a lot more color than I usually do, but I think my favorite card is the Kindness Matters card.  I really adore that new Beautiful Girls Wreath Stamp, and love how pretty it is in the monochromatic color scheme.  Do you have a favorite of the cards shared, or a favorite from the new products?  

Thanks for stopping by!
