Picket Fence Studios Release Day!

 Hello!  Guess what...it's Release Day!!!!!  This month is packed with so many must-have products; you do not want to miss it!  Best of all, everything is AVAILABLE in The Shop NOW!  Be sure to head over there to check it out!  

Today, I'm sharing several Halloween cards made with just a hand-full of all the new goodies!  All Hallow's Eve is just around the corner and this release is sure to scare up some fun!  


For my first card, I created a quick and easy shaker using acetate and my sewing machine.  I stamped out this ghost image from the Not Scared You Should Be Stamp set and fussy cut it out.  Then I adhered it on top of some clear acetate.  I sewed that to the top of some orange patterned paper in my stash and before closing it up completely I filled it with some of the new Midnight Tales Sequins Mix. Then I added my sentiment and that's it.  Such a quick and easy way to create a shaker, but still makes a big impact!  

This next card features the new Spider Web Cover Plate Die.  This die is so intricate and creates a total wow factor on your projects.  To create my card, I started with a piece of black card stock.  I die cut the spider web from white glitter paper and adhered it the black.  Then I stamped out and colored up Lexi Girl.  I used the coordinating die to cut her out and then I layered her on top of my web.  Across the bottom of the card I added some strips of patterned paper and layered my sentiment on top.  To finish the card off, I added a fun sentiment from the Not Scared You Should Be Clear Stamp Set.  I just love how this turned out!  


My final card features the cutest little monsters.  These not-so-scary guys are part of the new You Creep Me Out Clear Stamp Set.  To create my card, I used the Scallop Frames Slim Line Die Cutting System.  After cutting the layered out of patterned paper and card stock.  I layered it all together, creating three shaker windows down the center of the card.  I used the NEW Trick Or Treaters Sequin Mix Plus.  It is a Must Have!  Then I stamped out my images, colored them up with Copics, and cut them out using the coordinating dies.  Using foam tape, I popped them onto my card and added a few of the bat die cut from the Slim Line Die Cutting System Witch Insert.  Finally, I added my sentiment across the middle and there you have it.

For my card, I decided to create a bright floral card with lots of summer vibes.  To start, I layered up some patterned paper on top of my card base.  Then I stamped out my image, masked her off, and added some flower stamps behind her.  Then I colored the scene with Copic markers and die cut it into a square.  I layered that on top of an intricate frame that die cut from pink card stock.  With foam tape, I adhered that to the left corner of the card.  I stamped my sentiment onto some white card stock and die cut that into a circle.  After adding that to the right hand corner of the card, I added a couple of die cut clouds to my scene.

 Hello!  It's that time again!  Sneak Peeks for the NEW July Release at The Greeting Farm!  Today, we're featuring Animal Pots.  This sweet little set includes 3 adorable images and a bunch of coordinating sentiments.  



For my cards, I decided to create shaker windows for my little pots to sit on!  First, I started with some patterned paper and trimmed it to fit the front of my card base.  Then I created my window shakers using some dies in my stash.  I adhered them to the center of my cards and stamped my sentiments just above or below.  I added some gingham ribbon to the bottom of each card.  Then I stamped out my images, colored them up, and fussy cut them out.  Using foam tape, I popped them in the front of each window.  Such a sweet and easy way to brighten someone's day!

CC Designs Gnome Friends

Hello, hello!  I'm back today sharing another card from the new release at CC Designs!  This little set is called Gnome Friends!  It features the cutest little gnomes and some sweet little coordinating sentiments.  



To create my card, I started with some woodgrain patterned paper in my stash.  I trimmed that to fit my card base and adhered it to the top.  Then I die cut the film strip from some white card stock and added that to the left hand side of the card.  I inlayed some patterned paper in each of the 3 open spots.  Then I stamped out my images, colored them up, and cut them out using the coordinating dies.  I added them to the front of the card using foam tape.  For a few added details, I used the filmstrip die set to create a little mushroom at the bottom.  Then I added a couple of die cut clouds and the card is finished!
