Alcohol inks with cover die for Picket Fence Studios

 One of my favourite techniques is to add white die cuts over an alcohol ink on yupo background - this technique came to mind as soon as I locked eyes on this gorgeous Lavender Frame Coverplate die.


For a bit more interest, I added some pink foil over the alcohol ink. 

Also, do you see? We now have dies to match the More Fancy Sentiments stamp set! Woo hoo!

Patterned paper piecing

 I discovered a couple of weeks ago that my stash of birthday cards was particularly depleted, so I used a technique shown in an Online Card Class last year by Kristina Werner to make a bunch of cards super quickly! I pulled out patterned papers from some 6x6 packs in my stash (all now discontinued), making sure that I chose papers from the same pad for each card so that I knew they would match (I'm not good at putting patterned papers together!)

Using this technique, you get 3 cards from the 3 patterned papers - you just mix them up to get 3 layouts - so I made 24 cards in total!

Wildflowers for Paper Rose Studio

 I have a simple thank you card to share today for Paper Rose Studios.

 I stamped the wildflowers along the bottom edge of my card with Versamark, and then white embossed them. I used blending brushes to add Distress Oxide inks over the embossed flowers, and then sprayed and splattered some Perfect Pearls powder mixed in water over the ink. I finished with a printed sentiment on some foam adhesive.

Always roses

 The seamless repeating stamps from Picket Fence Studios are just so clever - you can stamp them over and over, left to right, top to bottom, and get a seamless image! Genius!

Caseing a favourite for A Blog Named Hero

 I have a card for the A Blog Named Hero Facebook page today, Caseing this card by Seeka.

I ink blended a rainbow on a white card base, sprayed and splattered some Perfect PEarls in water over the rainbow, and then adhered the cover die from Hero Arts over the top. I finished with a white embossed sentiment from Hero Greetings Cheeky Birthday.

Release day at Picket Fence Studios

 It's release day at Picket Fence Studios, and this release is a DOOZY! It is HUGE, and there are some AMAZING stamps and dies! 

In today's post, I am showcasing some of the amazing stencils in this release. All of the products in the release are listed below.

For this rainbow card, I used the Coloring Book Stencil along with the Big Hugs die.

For this next card, I made a slimline card using the Cloud Coverage stencil and the Happy Birthday word die. 

This slimline card was made using alcohol inks on Yupo with the Slimline Rising Sun Stencil.

And finally, I used the Wave Sun Stencil on this card, using three new Paper Glaze colours - Yellow Primrose, Pink Carnation and Mint Hydrangea. The sentiment is from Wild Peonies.

Moving gears

 I'm in the middle of a huge clean up and destash, but I've found a few things that were just screaming to be put onto a card. An envelope that some advertising material came in was made of this plastic stuff, so I cut it up and put it on a card. I added a die cut and stamped sentiment and I was done!


So far, so boring. But this is what this plastic looks like when you tilt it back an forth!

Foiled background

I've recently been trying to chip away at my pile of UFOs (UnFinished Objects). I found this printed sheet from Minc that I'd foiled in rose gold ages ago. I added some Distress Oxide ink with a life changing blender brush, and added a sentiment from Taylored Expressions.

On this card, the sentiment is from Ink to Paper, white embossed onto black cardstock.
