I do love a good mash-up card and this is one of them! I’ve combined loads of different brands to make this. Distress Oxide inks for the background before using an My Favorite Things background stamp for the text. I think sprinkled water on after to get it more uneven. After using a mini slimline die cut I used Picket Fence Studios paper glaze on a Pretty Pink Posh stencil for the banners. The cupcake is a digital stamp by Alex Syberia coloured in copics. It’s cut out and put on foam tape. An Altenew sentiment and die set is for the text stripe and the sequins are Little Things by Lucy.
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.
It is new release day at Picket Fence Studios (this and following links are affiliate links) and oh my is it a fun one! It has loads of fun drink dies to make shaker cards from and so many great sequin mixes! It was difficult to choose which ones to combine for sure! For my release day post I’m going to share my personal favourite of my cards for this release.
There is a new Picket Fence Studios (this and following links are all affiliate links) release out today and guess what?! I’ve been playing with stencils, inks and paper glaze. So yeah, this is going to be a long post. You might as well grab a cuppa before scrolling through.
First up I have a simple card where I started off by using masking tape to leave a stripe on the side. First I ink blended with various pink oxides to create a gradient effect, and then I used the Pathways 6×6 stencil together with the Paper Glaze Luxe Pink Magnolia. I applied it with one of the tools from the Mixed Media Spatulas tools package and I love the effect.
I coloured up one of the stamps from the Animal Crackers Caring Friends stamp set and because I had a cup of tea in a cup with blue flowers on at the time I simply add to add that to this cup as well. Before popping on the card with foam tape I used one of the bigger sentiments from the same set and added it towards the bottom of the card. A few pretty sequins from the Vintage Bulbs sequin mix finished off the look this time.
You can see how the glaze is raised off the card base and that it is quite glittery.
Here you can see the great sparkle and shine in the glaze. Isn’t it pretty? I love it and I don’t even normally like adding sparkles to my cards! You can also see how beautiful the sequins are!
