Howdy Sugah!

Hello!  Hope you are having a fabulous Monday!  Larisa here and today I'm sharing a fun country card using Cheeky Howdy 2.  This sweet little stamp is so much fun to color and create with!  As a Texas girl, I'm always partial to western themed stamps and this might just be the cutest one I've ever seen!  

To create my card, I started with some patterned paper and trimmed it to fit the front of my A2 sized card.  Then I die cut some dessert themed images using dies in my stash and layered them up top of my patterned paper.  I stamped out my image, colored her up with Copics, and fussy cut her out.  Then I popped her on top of the scene using some foam tape.  A cute little stamped sentiment and a couple of page flags finish it off!  
Copic Colors:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E04, R20
Hair: C5,C7,C9
Brown: E35, E37, E29

Picket Fence Studios Beautiful Girl Sierra

Hello!  Today, I'm sharing a vibrant, floral card using Beautiful Girl Sierra!  This stamp is gorgeous and I had so much fun coloring her up!  To begin, I stamped her out in tan ink and colored her up using the no-line coloring technique.  Then I die cut her out using the coordinating die.  For the background, I used the NEW Beautiful Girls Flower Wreath.  I stamped it out, colored it up with Copics, and trimmed it to fit my A2 sized card.  Then I added my Sierra image to the center of the wreath using some foam tape.  For the flowers in her hair, I wanted them to pop.  So I added some of the roses from the Beautiful Girls Flower set.  Then I stamped out my sentiment, cut it out with the coordinating die, and popped it across the bottom of my card using foam tape.  Some Stickles glitter over the flower images finishes this card off.

Picket Fence Stamps April 2021 Release Day!

 Hello!  It's release day at Picket Fence Stamps!  Today, I have a trio of  Slim Line cards to share with you featuring some of the new stamps and dies from this month's release!  

My first card features the New Scallop Framed Slim Line Die Cutting System.  This set is an ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE.  It has so many elements; the possibilities are endless!  I used the NEW Cats are Family Stamp set and Coordinating Dies to create clean and simple card.  I just love how the colors pop!

My next card features one of the NEW Slim Line Die Cutting System Inserts!  This beauty is called Monarch Butterfly.  I die cut the butterfly out of my card panel and then cut it again using vellum.  I fussy cut the vellum butterfly from the circle frame and stitched it on top of my card panel.  I just love this effect.  So pretty!  I also used the Big Happy Hugs Word Die.  I love that this set can be used as a part or a whole.  

My last card is probably my favorite from this release!  This is Dance Mode On!  How fun is this!  This card was so much fun and very easy to make.  I used some galaxy patterned paper in my stash, stamped out my image, colored it up, and fussy cut it out.  Then I used foam tape to add it on my card panel and stamped my sentiments below.  That's it!  Super quick and fun card!
