4 Easy Slimline Cards for Mother’s Day + Video Tutorial

Hello crafty friends! Mother’s Day is right around the corner and today I have 4 easy slimline cards that you can mass produce and give them to the most important women in your life. I also have a video tutorial on my YouTube channel and you can take a look at it for all details on how I made these cards, click here.

So for these slimline cards I have used the Nested Rectangle Dies from Picket Fence Studios, the Slimline Floral set from Simon Says Stamp, Hey Mama dies and Mother’s Day Sentiment Strips also from Simon Says Stamp. The embossing powder used is WOW! Metallic Gold Super Fine, my favorite! And I colored the flowers and leaves with Copic markers.

My first card has a choice of pink cardstock for my card base, along with iridescent sequins and the hey mama die cuts.

The sentiment strips from Simon Says Stamp are really helpful, they came in handy for me and saved me some time.

For the second card I have Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with two floral frames and I love how all the flowers leaves look on top of this color of cardstock. The pearls gave this card a very warm touch too.

Here’s a closer look.

On my third slimline card the floral frames literally jump up from the background with this dark pink cardstock.

The use of these embellishments on this card also helped to create a more dramatic contrast.

You could’ve also had your sentiment gold heat embossed on this panel and it would’ve have looked wonderful too.

On the last card I had this dark teal cardstock that also helped to create contrast on this panel.

This floral frame is not just beautiful but it helps to create a focal point on your card.

The contrast of colors here is also beautiful and strong.

Making these slimline cards were very easy and fast. Once you have all floral frames colored and your die cuts ready then you just need glue and start putting together all pieces.

I wish all moms to have a marvelous Mother’s Day, please feel blessed for being the most strong and courageous people in this world. Hugs and kisses to all of you!

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

25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020 Hop

Hello friends! Today Picket Fence Studio is participating in this awesome blog hop with Tracey Mehak and 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020. You can find her blog post to this hop here.

I have created three tags using the new Winter Snowflake die and Snowflake Alice Die. I decided to go with plaid backgrounds. I love plaids so much!

I also added splatters of white ink to the background for a snowy look.

I placed one of the Winter Snowflakes on top of Snowflake Alice.

The sentiment is from Fancy Christmas Sentiments stamp and it was heat embossed using WOW! Red Glitz Embossing Glitter. Also, some sequins from Picket Fence Studios were added.

For the next tag I have a red plaid and festive background.

I added several Winter Snowflakes, some made out of vellum, white cardstock and others heat embossed.

I layered some snowflakes die cuts to create more dimension and contrast. The background also have some splatters of white ink.

The sentiment is also from Fancy Christmas Sentiments stamp set.

For the last tag I have this beautiful green plaid background.

Winter Snowflakes die cuts are also added, some of them were layered.

I chose Red Glitz Embossing Glitter on the snowflakes to make them pop up.

I hope you like these Christmas tags and get some ideas for this coming Christmas. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

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.

Karen
