It's the 14th of the month, which means that there is a new release from Picket Fence Studios.  As always, I have the entire release listed below, so that you can peek at all the new offerings, and then I have a couple of cards to share with you showcasing some of the new products.

Specific products used in the cards below will be listed separately at the bottom of the post.

I have two cards to share with you below, along with tips on how the card was created.  All of the supplies used in the cards are listed at the bottom of the post.  For additional samples throughout the month, please follow my Instagram.  

  • I began by stamping the image from We Are a Fishy Lot onto Bristol Paper and coloring it in with Copic Markers.  I set the colored image aside to work on the background.
  • I ripped a piece of painters tape to lay over the background.  Then I blended in the ground area of the background.  
  • Using the other half of the tape, I blocked off the ground area, and blended the water area. Once I had the colors where I wanted them, I removed the tape, and did a final blend with the ink that was left on the brush over the very top of the ground area to "sit" it in the scene.  
  • I laid the Sun with Rays 6x6 Stencil over the top, and used a wide brush to brush a bit of water over the top of the ink blended scene.  
  • I went back to the colored image, and matched Copic markers to the blended background as closely as I could.  I colored in the image, then die cut it with the coordinating die.  
  • I adhered the die cut image to the background where I wanted it, then laid the Sun with Rays stencil back over the card front - matching up the previously added lines.  I used the Colorless Blender Copic marker to add the rays to the background of the stamped image, so that they light rays were continuous through the background of the scene.  
  • Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the O-Fish-Ally Stamp Set onto the background with Black Hybrid Ink.  

  • I started this card, by stamping and coloring in the whale image from the Even More of a Fishy Lot stamp set.  I colored it in using Copic Markers, and added a little colored pencil over the top to add a bit more dimension.  
  • I heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set onto black card stock.  
  • On an A2 panel of white card stock, I blended pink and purple inks (similar to colors used on the whale) through the A Whole Lot of Polka Dots 6x6 Stencil
  • I die cut both the colored image, and the sentiment using the coordinating dies.  I also die cut some Extra Wide Foam Tape with the Whale die.   Then I die cut the heart from the ink blended panel using a heart frame die from the Scallop Frames Slim Line Die Cutting System Set.  I also cut the same heart frame from a pink card stock.  
  • I then layered everything on a white card base.  The polka dot panel was backed with a piece of purple card stock.
