PFS Tropical Cocktails

There is a new Picket Fence Studios release tomorrow. Are you ready for it? Today I want to show you want of my favourite dies from the past release, the Tropical Cocktail Shaker die, so you know to grab this one as well tomorrow, together with the new stuff. I’ve made one card with it as a shaker cocktail, and one using just the plain die.

First off I’ve cut out the glass loads of times and glued them together to make the shaker card. The Cosmo sequin mix was perfect for it. I then coloured up the little pieces with my Copics. The background behind is just a fun play around with various glaze. For the bottom layer I ran this rich, deep coloured card stock together with the Tree Bark 6×8 stencil through my die cut machine to get a lovely embossed look. The sentiment has used the same coloured card stock to match in with the sequin mix I used.

Here is a fun card using just the plain outline die. I’ve cut it out in different colours and glued them partially on top of each other. I’ve kept the card mostly white to make the die cuts and embellishments stand out, so the sentiment is kept neutral to go with. View the list of all the products at the end of the post.

Mo’s Sofie

I love the little girls Mo of Mo’s Digital Pencil draws up and Sofie here is no exception! Isn’t she sweet where she’s holding her little doll? It seemed like the perfect stamp for a 2 year old, so I printed out a blue number who with the stamp. While colouring up the girl, I also gave the number a bit of shading.

Then I used a Papirdesign stamp saying Happy Birthday in Norwegian on top before die cutting the panel using a Mama Elephant die and some Altenew enamel dots.

POD Pop of colour

Spring is definitely here and both grass and trees are turning green. So how about a card to celebrate just that?

I have used the Woodland background stamp together with Marigold. One of the things I appreciate when it comes to these stamps are the names given to the different animals. I love that they all have their own names! Anyway, they are two of the great stamps over at Purple Onion Designs, both from the Stacey Yacula collection. The sentiment is from the Everyday Blurbs set.

Fun with Mintay papers

Guess what I’ve not made in forever? A layered card without any colouring! I saw these Mintay papers when visiting Rozzan’s shop when I was in Sweden last and I couldn’t walk away without a few different paper pads. As if I need anymore papers… But! This time I had a plan right away. I knew exactly what to make! Someone’s birthday was coming up and a sea themed card was perfect. For once I didn’t feel like colouring something as well, so it was perfect!

PFS More Watermelon

I’ve made another card with some of the watermelon themed stuff from the latest Picket Fence Studios release. This time I’ve used the Sweet Sweet Dear stamp set. The sweet girl seems to very much enjoy her watermelon. I used cardstock to match in colours before die cutting the watermelon in the A Rainbow Die for all Seasons die set. I coloured up each part individually and then put it on a black card stock to make the seeds visible. I used the same colours for the watermelon die as on the watermelon the girl is holding.

The fun embellishment are from the Watermelon Crush sequin mix and I’ve used a sentiment stamp from The Bakery stamp set.

Another photo. You can see both the coloured panel and the watermelon die have been raised from the rest. I’ve put foam tape under both.
