There are a few big stamps in the latest Picket Fence Studios (this and all links in this post are affiliate links) release and the Mistletoe Kisses is one of them. I’ve chosen to stamp it in the top left corner so that I could fit a big sentiment as well. I opted for Joyeux Noel from the stamp set with the same name. A few sequins from the Christmas Flurries embellishment jar were placed around the sentiment, and I stuck with my top left positioning when putting the coloured panel onto the card base as well.
It is new release day at Picket Fence Studios (this and all links in this post are affiliate links)! I’ve had fun playing with it and opted for blues for my first card this time. I’ve coloured up the Merry Good Gnome and used the matching die to cut him out. Then I popped some foam tape on his pack and put him aside while I was playing.
First I inked up the background in two shades of blue. I stuck with the bottom right side of the card and deliberately made the edges look rough and bold before I used the Paper Glaze Snowdrop White on the snowflakes from the Fancy Christmas Tree blending stencil. While that was drying I cut out two of the Slim Line Giant Christmas Trees. I cut them to different heights and placed them onto the card before gluing the gnome on top. The Animal Crackers A Penguin Christmas has some nice and small sentiments so I used one of those, and the matching die, for a small sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. At the end I placed three shiny snowflakes from Santa’s Cookies sequins mix plus.
You can see that the snowflakes from the sequin mix have a completely different look when the light hits differently. Here they are much more subtle. Loving it!
And a little close-up! See the cool shiny snowflake?
There is something about rubber stamps and the amazingly clear stamp you get from it. There is no secret that I love Purple Onion Designs and their gorgeous stamps. I’m looking forward to making the blog more active and show you all the cards I’ve made the past couple of months. First off is this Gazing couple enjoying the Sunrise. And the Seaside sentiment set is perfect. I’ve used a matching dark brown ink for this one.
I’ve finally played around with alcohol inks for this card! There are two green colours included and I’ve added a dash of yellow to go with. I absolutely love the spooky butterflies, so had to use them right away!
Here is a side on view of the card as well.
Who doesn’t love a good sunflower stamp? Here is a new Lemon Queen Sunflower (this and all following links are affiliate links) from Picket Fence Studios. I’ve stamped it in pale ink and coloured it up in a no-line version. The lined version has very prominent lines and a dark centre, so it should be fairly easy to colour up. I’ve coloured it up with Copics and then used some coloured pencils of the top.
Once again I’ve played with inks. This time I did it on the card base with three different shades of yellow. I wanted it to be subtle, yet interesting, instead of having it in a plain yellow colour. To make it fairly visible I’ve used one of the rectangles in the Double Stitched Rectangle dies set to cut out the coloured panel. I wanted to show a fair bit of the background without cutting off too much of the flower at the same time.
I’ve stamped on a sentiment from the Fancy Congratulaions set and then put on some sequins from the Candy Corn sequin mix.
We’ll have a close-up look at it as well.
