September release at Picket Fence Studios

Today is the day! There are some AMAZING stamps, dies and stencils being released this month at Picket Fence Studios - this one would have to be my favourite!

I white embossed the "Christmas poinsettia star" stamp onto watercolour cardstock. I then used the ink smooshing technique to add some colour using Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves, and then added some depth of colour to the poinsettia petals using more Distress Ink and my water brush. I then sprayed the whole panel in Perfect Pearls in water before drying it with my heat tool and adhering to a card front. The sentiment is from "The Season of Giving" stamp set, and I white embossed it onto a scrap of deep purple cardstock.  (BTW, I have a friend who is a French teacher, so I just had to add the accent tréma on top of the e in "Noël")

I love this Poinsettia so much, I couldn't stop and one card!

I used Zig clean color real brush markers to colour this one, and the sentiment is again from "The Season of Giving".

I have another Christmassy card to share!  I started by creating a diagonal background using the "Candy Cane Lane Stencil" and some red ink using my Life Changing Blender Brushes. I stamped the main image from "Straight from the North Pole" in Picket Fence Black hybrid ink, and then coloured him with Copic markers. I cut him out with the "Straight from the North Pole" coordinating die and stamped an image from the same stamp set.

Floral thanks

I tried something different with this card - I sprayed some water into a palette, and then sprinkled some Nuance pigment powders into the water to create watercolours. This wasn't exactly the look I was going for, but it's still OK, I think.

I used a floral stamp from Simon Says Stamp, and a sentiment die set from Create a Smile.

Rainbow floral birthday

Rainbows on Yupo. I think I have a problem.

I added an embossed floral image from Wplus9 on Vellum over the top of the rainbow of alcohol ink. I coloured the back of the vellum with copic markers to match the alcohol ink behind the vellum. I finished with a sentiment from Altenew.

Rainbow fairy

More fairy fun!

I used a fairy, toadstools, flowers and a sentiment from Lawn Fawn, grass dies from MFT, and cloud dies from Memory Box.

I'll be sharing this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme this week is "Stamp It".

Stamptember collaboration with Picket Fence Studio

I am very excited today to be sharing this new stamp set collaboration from Picket Fence Studios and Simon Says Stamp for Stamptember! 

I stamped the cute little snowman using Black hybrid ink from Picket Fence Studios and then masked him and the snowdrifts using Inkadinkado masking paper. I stamped and white embossed the snowflakes, then inked the background with Distress Oxide Inks and my Life Changing Blender Brushes. I removed the fist mask to add a little bit of blue to the snowdrift in the front, then removed all masks to colour in the snowman with Copic markers. I finished with some stardust Stickles in the centres of the snowflakes.

Make sure you visit the blogs of the Picket Fence Studios Design Team members -  there are so many awesome cards to see!

Stamptember blog party at Simon Says Stamp

It's Stamptember! YAY!! I am partying with Simon Says Stamp for the launch of Stamptember! There are heaps of collaborations and giveaways throughout September to celebrate, so let's get started! This post is part of the blog party being hosted by Simon Says Stamp - visit their blog to check out the rest of the blog party-goers!

I used the new "Handcrafted with Love" stamp set, along with the "Heart Mandala" Stencil.  This new stamp set is designed to be used on the backs of cards, on "happy mail" envelopes, on tags to attach to handmade items such as knitted, crocheted, sewn, quilted, baked or stitched items, or maybe on care tags to be attached to these items.  There are SO MANY stamps in this set, there's something for everything!

I used Distress Oxide inks over the heart mandala stencil, and then stamped the "hand crafted" stamp over the top. The distress oxide ink resisted the black ink a little bit, so you can still see the stenciled image within the black stamped image.

I wanted to make another card with this set, so I chose two stamps (coloured with care and the paintbrush image) and created the splashes of colour using Distress Oxide inks and a hand-cut mask. I added some party to the colour using a white gel pen.
