Picket Fence Studios November Release


It's the 14th of the month, and that means it is time for another new release from Picket Fence Studios!  This month, 

Find the full release in the shop now.  

As always, I have multiple cards to share with you today, so lets get right on into it!  

Card #1 | Aquarius Girl

For today's first card, I stamped the image from the Aquarius Girl Stamp Set, onto white card stock, using a light ink for no-line coloring.  I then colored in the image, using my Polychromos pencils.  Once colored, I used the coordinating die to cut the image.  

I cut a piece of navy card stock to a card front size, and then used Slimline Cloud Coverage Stencil, and my Life Changing Blender Brushes to ink in some clouds - using Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks.  Once the clouds were added, I heavily powdered the panel, and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set, before heat embossing it in Metallic Platinum.  Then, I splattered a little Sparkle Paper Glitz - mixed with alcohol - over the top of the panel, and allowed it to dry.  The image was adhered to the card front, then added to a white card base.

Card #2 | Iconic

I began this card by stamping the Iconic Beauty Kiara Stamp in Black Hybrid Ink.  I quickly coated the ink in clear embossing powder, so that I could do an emboss resist technique over the top.  Using a Life Changing Blender Brush, I inked the panel in Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Ink, keeping the ink darkest on the outer edges of the panel.  Then, I laid the Fancy Flourish Stencil over the top of the panel, and inked over that with Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Ink - again, keeping the ink along the edges of the panel and away from the image.  Once the panel was inked, I was able to go in with my Polychromos pencils, and add some color to the image.  

To complete the card front, I die cut two sets of letters from the Slim Line Stitched and Scalloped Rectangle & Alpha Die Cutting System Die Set. I adhered the second set of letters on the back side of the first. I lined the letters up on my work surface, and applied painters tape to hold them in a straight line while I glued them to the card front.    I positioned the sentiments from the stamp set, in my MISTI, and then removed the center sentiment, so that I could stamp and heat embossed the two gold sentiments.   I, then, repositioned the other sentiment, to stamp and white heat emboss it.  I matted the card front with a piece of black card stock, then attached it to a white card base.

Card #3 | Hello Wreath

This third card was super quick to make.  I stamped and gold heat embossed the A Wreath for All Seasons stamp image onto kraft card stock.  I then used just three Polychromos pencils to add a bit of shading.  

I die cut the sentiment from the Mini Slimline Double Stitched Rectangles Die Cutting System Die Set, out of green card stock, and adhered that to the card front.  Then a added a little highlight to the die cut using the white pencil.  A few gems from the Sands of Time Gem Mix finished the card front, and it was adhered to a white card base.

Card #4 | Hello Plumeria

Another super easy card!  I layered the Slim Line Plumeria Flowers Stencil over a panel of white card stock.  Using the Life Changing Blender Brushes, I inked the flowers with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink, and the leaves with Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink.  Then, I removed the stencil, and die cut the panel with one of the rectangle dies from the Mini Slimline Double Stitched Rectangles Die Cutting System Die Set.  I also die cut the sentiment from the set, out of gold card stock.  

I layered the inked panel and sentiment together, and added them to a white card base.  Then, to finish the card, I added a few of the Iridescent Moonshine Sequins.

Card #5 | A Paper Hello

The final project is actually two in one!  I pulled out the Peach and Piper Checking the Post Stamp Set, and stamped an A2 sized envelope, along with stamping one of the images onto a piece of white card stock.  Then I colored in both images with Polychromos pencils.  I die cut the image from the card stock, using the coordinating die.  

To finish the envelope, I  stamped a sentiment from the Hugs Enclosed Stamp Set in Black Hybrid Ink.  

Going back to work on the card, I wanted to create a stitched frame for my shaker element.  So, I partially die cut a rectangle from the Mini Slim Line Double Stitched Rectangles Die Cutting System Die Set, out of teal card stock. To do this, lay your top plate of your die cutting sandwich, only over the portion you want cut.  Then, I lined the die up with the stitch marks at the length I wanted the frame - you will feel the die "settle" into place once the stiches line up in the grooves  - and die cut the remaining portion.  Once the rectangle was cut, I used the same technique, with the cloud die from the same set, to cut out the inside of the frame.  I then added a sheet of acetate for the window.  The backing piece of the shaker was stamped and white heat embossed with the A Friendly Paper Hello Stamp. Before adhering the shaker element together, I added a generous amount of the Snail Mail Sequin Mix Plus.  

Before assembling the card, I randomly stamped a panel of white card stock with the envelopes image from the Peach & Piper stamps set, in aqua ink.  Then I layered my elements together, and adhered the card front to a white card base.

That's it for today's cards.  As always, there are several other fun new things in the release, and I did not have time to play with them all.  Be sure to stop over to Picket Fence Studios and take a look at the entire release.
