Fall Slimline Card | My Sweet Petunia

Hello friends! Today I’m over My Sweet Petunia Blog sharing this slimline card featuring the original MISTI and Pinkfresh Studios products.

Let’s begin! I started by die cutting the Slim Scallop Circle die out of gray cardstock and then I adhered a white folded slim notecard at the back using glue. Next, I die cut the Curvy Floral Vine Stamp die out of white cardstock. I placed the negative part inside my MISTI and the die cut in the negative space. I lined up and inked up my stamp using Altenew inks and pressed firmly the stamp into the cardstock.

I repeated these steps until I finished with all the florals and arranged them around the scallop circles in my background. Additionally, I die cut three times the Leafy Branch die out of orange cardstock and added them next to each floral using glue.

I also die cut the word FALL using Lea’s Ornate Lowercase die set out of orange. The outline part of each letter was die cut out of white cardstock for more contrast.

Finally, each letter were added to my background using double sided foam tape and I put some iridescent jewels around.

I really hope you like this card and get some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Your friend, Karen

Happy Ho Ho to you | Picket Fence Studios

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m over Picket Fence Studios blog sharing these two Christmas cards. I’m featuring Baker’s Twine and HO HO HO Stamp set. Also Gin & Tonic and Moonshine Sequin Mixes.

Let’s begin! For the first card I started by applying distress oxide inks with the Life Changing Blender Brushes to a panel. I used Aged Mahogany, Festive Berries and Abandoned Coral.

Once my panel was dry, I trimmed down the edges and adhered a white folded note card at the back.

Then, I stamped this large sentiment from Ho Ho Ho Stamp and I heat embossed it with WOW! Red Glitz Embossing Glitter. I repeated this step three times to get a bit more of dimension on my sentiment.

Finally, I stamped the images from the Baker’s Twine Stamp and heat embossed them with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. With a red gel pen I filled in the empty spaces of the twine and lastly, I added a few sequins from Gin & Tonic Sequin Mix.

For the second card I also applied distress oxide inks with the Life Changing Blender Brushes to another panel. I used Black Soot, Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio.

When my panel was dry, I trimmed down the edges and adhered a white folded note card at the back using glue.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from Ho Ho Ho Stamp and I heat embossed it with WOW! Red Glitz Embossing Glitter. I repeated this step three times to get a bit more of dimension on my sentiment.

Last, I stamped the images from the Baker’s Twine Stamp and heat embossed them with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. I filled in the empty spaces of the twine with a red gel pen and finally, I added a few sequins from Gin & Tonic Sequin Mix and this card was finished.

Thank you so much crafty friends for stopping by and I hope you like these cards and get some inspiration. Please have a wonderful rest of the week.

Blessings, Karen

Picket Fence Studios November Release is here!

Hello my darling friends! Today I’m super excited to be sharing with you all the November Release from Picket Fence Studios. I have 5 slimline cards using the new Slimline Die Cutting System. I will describe how I made my first card and then I will show you some pictures of my other creations. I hope you like them. Let’s begin!

For my first card I have a slimline Christmas card and I’m featuring the new Winter Snowflakes Dies and Snowflake Lawanda. These dies are perfect for layering and I die cut them out of cardstock, vellum and others were heat embossed. You will see in the next pictures how gorgeous they look.

I started by die cutting a base card and a layering base using the Slimline Die Cutting System from Picket Fence Studios. Then, on my layering base I applied Distress Oxide inks using a Life Changing Blender Brush. The colors I applied are the following: Aged Mahogany, Victorian Velvet and Milled Lavender.

Next, I sprayed water using a Distress Sprayer and removed the excess with a paper towel. Additionally, I added splatters of white ink and let my panel dry.

Once my panel was dry, I die cut a bunch of snowflakes using the Winter Snowflakes. Then, I created clusters of three layers with the snowflakes as you can see in the pictures.

I glued each cluster of snowflakes to my panel using liquid glue. I trimmed down some of the snowflakes that were hanging out of the panel.

My sentiment is from Fancy Christmas Sentiments Stamp set and I used Hybrid Black ink to stamp “Merry Christmas” with the help of my MISTI. I also, added WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder on top and heat embossed the sentiment.

I die cut the Lawanda Snowflake out of white cardstock and then I heat embossed it using WOW! Be Mine Embossing Glitter. Additionally, I die cut another snowflake but this time out of a laminated sheet that has glitter in it. I adhered both snowflakes to my panel and also a card base at the back. Finally, I added drops of Tiding Stickles, White Nuvo drops and Moonshine Sequin Mix from Picket Fence Studios around the background and this card was ready.

My next card features the Lydia Snowflake Die and it’s definitely my favorite design. I created an ornament with this snowflake.

I also added the Winter Snowflakes to the background and heat embossed the sentiment “peace on earth”. I simply adore how this card turned out.

My ornaments has a belly band that can be detached.

Next card! This one features the Slimline Daisy Burst Stencil, Drink Your Green Stamp set and dies and Margarita and Creme de Menthe Sequin Mixes.

What a sweet stamp! This one is Pet all the Dogs Stamp and dies.

And for my last card I have a watercolor slimline featuring Bugville Stamp set. This stamp has the coordinating dies.

I hope you get some inspiration and like the cards I made. If you want to head over Picket Fence Studios store click here.

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for stopping by.

Glitter Awesomeness with WOW! Embossing Powder

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a very fun and easy technique with Glitter and Stencil. I made two cards out of one and the stencil is from Picket Fence Studios Brocade, the Waterbrush Hello Die is from Altenew and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Friendship Stamp and Die. Also, for these two cards I’m featuring WOW! Girls Best Friend Sparkles Glitter and WOW! Jade Sparkles Glitter. The results from this technique are absolutely gorgeous so you can’t go wrong with this! 

Let’s shine! To create the background of my first card I added double sided tape to an A2 panel. I removed the release paper and saved it for later. I took the Brocade Stencil from Picket Fence Studios and applied Pixie Spray to it, then I placed it on top of the panel. 

I laid down the release paper on top of the panel and rubbed on the stencil using a bone folder to make sure it is very well stuck to the panel, that way the glitter won’t get behind the stencil. Then, I added the WOW! Girls Best Friend Sparkles Glitter on top. I tap to shake off the excess of glitter and placed again the release paper on top and using the bone folder I pressed the glitter into the adhesive.    

Next, I carefully removed the stencil and applied WOW! Jade Sparkles Glitter on top. I shook off the excess and again the release paper was placed on top to rub on the stencil, making sure the glitters is held by the adhesive. As my following step I die cut the center of this panel using the Altenew Nesting Labels Die Set. I reserved this part for my next card.  

I adhered a white folded note card at the back of the panel using glue. Additionally, I die cut the Waterbrush Hello Die out of glitter paper and two more times out of white cardstock. I glued all pieces one on top of each other and added this stack of hellos at the center of the panel. 

Finally, I stamped the sentiment using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it with WOW! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder. I added this strip to my panel and this first card is finished.

For the second card, I started by die cutting a piece of white glitter paper using one of the Altenew Nesting Labels Die Set. I adhered this die cut to a white folded note card using glue. 

Next, using double sided foam tape I added on top of the white glitter die cut, the piece that I was saving from my first card. 

Here you can take a look at all the glitter awesomeness. And it’s even more gorgeous in person. 

The strip sentiment was added on top and it was heat embossed using WOW! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder. And for the last touch of shine and to finish this card, a few sequins were added. 

Capturing glitter on pictures is hard, so these pics don’t make justice but honestly the glitter looks amazing! Please give this technique a try, you are going to love it! Thank you so much for stopping by and have an amazing week!

Your friend,

Karen

Let’s start! I have created two cards for this blog hop, one slimline and one A2 panel. The stamps and dies are Honey Bear and Buzzy Beez. You can combine these two stamps because they match perfectly.

I placed all stamps inside the MISTI and stamped them using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and I colored them with Copic markers. Before die cutting, I placed my sheet inside the MISTI again to stamp one more time and get those black outlines more define. Next, I proceeded to die cut all images using the coordinating dies.

I die cut the slimline panel and additionally I die cut a circle right in the center of it. I applied Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink in two ends of the panel using a Life Changing Blender Brush. Then I adhered a black slimline notecard at the back of this panel using foam tape.

The circle I die cut from the center of the slimline panel was colored with Speckled Egg and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks using Life Changing Blender Brushes. Then, I inserted this die cut in the center of the panel using glue.

I die cut the honeycomb out of orange cardstock four times and arranged them along with all the other images at the top, middle and bottom part of the panel using glue and foam tape.

I also, placed another piece of cardstock inside the MISTI and stamped all the sentiments, then I adhered them to the background with foam tape and this card is done.

Someone Said Glitter?

Hello friends! Today I’m so happy to be sharing this card full of glitter and it’s literally full of glitter! This technique combines stencil and glitter and it is super fun and it doesn’t take too much time. For this card I’m using the Floral Stencil and Thank You for a being You Stamp Set.

Let’s begin! I started by creating the background and I added double sided taped to panel that is 3 1/4 x 4 1/2. Then I removed and saved the release paper. Next, I applied Pixie Spray to my Floral Stencil and placed it on top of my panel.

To make sure the stencil is pretty well stuck to my panel and the glitter doesn’t get behind it, I laid down the release paper on top and rubbed the stencil on with a bone folder. Then, I poured some purple glitter on top and I let it go like waterfall over the stencil so all the adhesive showing through the stencil will hold the glitter. You need to tap a little bit the panel the get off the excess and then you placed the release paper on top again and press the glitter into the adhesive using a bone folder.

My next step is to carefully remove the stencil and applied the second color of glitter. This time is a bright yellow to make all the flowers pop up from the background. I just poured the glitter on top, shake off the excess and placed the release paper on top again to make sure the adhesive holds the glitter.

Finally, I adhered a white folded card note at the back using foam tape for more dimension. I also heat embossed with silver embossing powder the sentiment and placed it at the bottom of my panel and this card is done! I really hope you try this technique is very easy and the results are so amazing! You can’t image how gorgeous this card shines in person. Have a phenomenal rest of the week!

Your friend Karen

TIP: use super fine glitter for better results.
