Hello crafty friends! Today the Picket Fence Studios Design Team is so excited because the October release is here! We have lots of inspiration and great ideas for you! I also have a video tutorial at Picket Fence Studios YouTube channel featuring the new Honey Dear Stamp, I Bee Fierce Stamp and Honeycomb Stencil. Let’s start!
For my first card I created a background using Distress Oxide inks: Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserve and Wilted Violet. Once it was dry I placed the Honeycomb Stencil on top and applied Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste using one of the new Mixed Media Spatula from Picket Fence Studios and let it dry overnight.
Once it was dry I trimmed down a little bit the edges and then I adhered a white notecard at the back of the panel using liquid glue.
I stamped the sentiment from Honey Dear on vellum and heat embossed it using WOW! Metalline Perfect Plum Embossing Powder. I adhered this piece of vellum to my background using double sided tape. Finally, I stamped the image from the same stamp Honey Dear using Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid Ink, I colored it using Copic markers and die cut using the matching die. Next, I added foam tape at the back and added to my card and this card was finished.
For my second card I created a shaker card, the process is bit difficult for me to explain so I recommend you to watch the video at Picket Fence Studios YouTube channel for all details. Let’s continue, I started by placing the Honeycomb Stencil on top of a white Strathmore panel and applied Golden Rose and Daffodil Yellow Paper Glaze on top using one of the new Mixed Media Spatulas from Picket Fence Studios and an stencil pad. I let it dry for 20 minutes and then applied heat using a heat gun to speed up the drying process.
To create the shaker window opening I used one border die. I placed this border die on top of my panel and run it through my die cutting machine then I repeated the same step, but this time I placed the border die a little bit below the first cut.
I put double sided tape around the opening of the shaker window at the back of this panel and also a piece of any plastic packaging big enough to cover the opening. I left some space to fill it with Black Russian Sequin Mix. Next, I closed this space and added foam tape around the back of this panel to adhered it to a white notecard.
I stamped one of the sentiments from I Bee Fierce Stamp Set on black cardstock and white heat embossed it using WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder and placed it at the bottom of the shaker window using double sided tape. Finally, I stamped the bees with more Black Hybrid ink, Copic colores them and die cut each of them using the coordinating dies and this card was done! Remember to head over to YouTube channel to watch a full tutorial from these two cards.
This is another card I created featuring the new Sponsored by Coffee Stamp Set and Die. My background was creating using paper glaze over Down to the Last Drop Stencil.
For this set I used the new Ash, Maple and Oak Leaves Dies. You have three different designs and two sizes. These dies are gorgeous!
On this card I’m featuring the new Slim Line Rainbow Stencil.
Here I have the new Coffee Cup Stencil. I applied WOW! Embossing Pad through the stencil and then heat embossed it using WOW! Embossing Glitters.
