I’m back with my final card for the Picket Fence Studios October release. As the whole family got sick for a couple of weeks, everything got put a bit on hold. But now I’m hopefully back around with loads of crafting time soon!
For my second new release card for Picket Fence Studios (this and the links below are all aff.links), I’ve made a vintage inspired card. I’ve coloured up the fab Jolly Christmas Gnome. For the background I’ve distressed the edge (oxides) and used the awesome Hark, the Angels Sing background stamp (I love a good background stamp!). I then tore the side of the coloured panel before gluing it onto a vintage looking background paper. The sentiment, from the Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree set, is stamped onto kraft card stock and put on foam pads.
There is a new Picket Fence Studios (aff.link) release out today and I’ve had the honour of playing with loads of the new product as their Guest Designer this month! Yay! I was a bit unsure of which project to show you first, but in the end I decided on this fun layered card completely without colouring which is very unusual for me.
I’ve used loads of products to create this Christmas card. I started out by using the Snowy Tree Scene A2 blending stencil and two different shades of green before using the Falling Snowflakes stencil to create the rest of the background. I wanted the snowflakes rather blurry and fading into the background, so I wasn’t very careful inking it up. The tree was going to be in the focus.
Next I grabbed the great background stamp, Hark, the Angels Sing stamp, and inked up parts of it to cover the majority of one half of the card. The Joy word die was cut out several times, in white, only to be glued together so the word would stand out. Then I used parts of one of the sentiments on the Angels Sing to Newborn King stamp set for an embossed text on top of the word die before finishing off the card with the lightest colouring in the Sequin mix Vintage Bulbs.
