Today’s card is pretty simple. It is a partially coloured panel, raised off the light grey card base with foam tape, then several layers of the sentiment raises that again off the panel. The stamp is a Rachelle Anne Miller illustrated one by My Favorite Things and is called Snow Sweet. The sentiment die is by Mama Elephant, and the snowflakes are by Picket Fence Studios.
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.
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.

I’m back with a new card. The whole family has been sick for about a month now, so surely this cold virus must be on its way out of our system shortly! Thank goodness I have a little pile of coloured images to use when colouring isn’t happening. Although for this one I did draw the present in for her to sit on!
The stamp is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and it’s called Little Fairy Mandi. I’ve used a birthday die by Papirdesign together with a Mathia Design text stamp for the sentiment. It says “Birthday hug for you”.
I’m a bit slow to post this up on the blog here, it’s been on my Instagram since it was made, though. This is from Day 4 of the Online Card Classes – a smaller card making course focusing on card stock which I took at the end of August. This card here is made after watching Debby’s video.
I’ve used a Snip Art stencil with acrylic paint for the background, the chipboard is also from there, I believe. Dies by Honey Bee, La-La Land Crafts and Precious Marieke as well as a sentiment stamp by Mathia Design and some enamel dots by Altenew.
It was quite a fun card to make, even if it was a bit challenging to try to layer up the dies for dimension and placing them in a way I thought would look nice. In the end I’m really pleased with the result, so don’t be surprised if you see more similar cards in the future!
