Picket Fence January Release Part Two

Today I am showing you part two of the Picket Fence Studios January Release!  
I'm starting with the beautiful A Bride's Bouquet stamp set.  I love the cotton in this bouquet!  


 The card has the bouquet colored with Copic markers and a vellum strip with the sentiment embossed on it.

A Bride's Bouquet stamp set


This is one of the purses in my Fashionable Favorites tutorial available HERE.  I used the bouquet as a 'fabric' background and a few of the flowers for a tag.


I used my envelope punch board to create an envelope.  The flowers pull out and it is a congratulations card.  
I colored the flowers with Copic markers and then hand cut out a few extra to make it more dimensional. The sentiment is embossed with black embossing powder.


These guys were fun to work with - BFF Maggie Mae stamp set and die, and Paul James Guy stamp set and die.  
What I love most is the awesome sentiment set I used on both these cards called Seriously, Absolutely, Always.

The background is a stencil called Scrolls and the characters are colored with Copic markers.

Bawahaaa!  How many times have you said this?  I love these sentiments!!!
Seriously, Absolutely, Always Stamp Set

The background on this one used the Pretty Flowers in a Heart stencil.  The sentiment is embossed in white and she is colored with Copic markers.
As always these are just a few of the new release for Picket Fence Studios.  Please visit their website for all the new things!

Tall Type Tagalong Dies - Friday Feature For Concord & 9th

The Friday Feature for Concord & 9th this week is  Tall Type Tagalong Dies.  
This set is designed to be used with the Tall Type Alphabet Dies. 
I love the Rae Dunn look of these alphabets and adding the characters instead of a letter is fun.  I've done this with so many alphabets!  


We all need happy mail, right?  Nothing happier than rainbows!


I put three of these balloons together instead of just one.  I wanted to use three different blue cardstocks to match the background.


I think I might add a little leaf to this flower but it's still cute as is.  The cat, Cheeto the brat, had a little munch on the corner of this card...sigh! 











I know we're a long way away from Halloween, but look how fun this pumpkin is.  

Don't shoot me...yes it is a Christmas card.  Just think, you could make all your cards now and be ready when it rolls around again!

Be sure to check out the Tall Type Tagalong Dies and the rest of he January release at Concord and 9th...ya know, there is a cute purse die released this month too and it is back in stock today (Friday).

A Stamping Challenge Among Friends

Today I have something that was super fun and slightly terrifying to show you.  I teamed up with a couple friends to do a challenge in card making.  
Jammie, of Sweet Sentiment, supplied the image and colored it in Copic Markers.  
Sara, of Much Love Sara, designed and completed the background.

  They passed the two pieces on to me and it was my job to turn them into a finished card ... AND, we will be giving it away to one lucky reader on Instagram! 



I used Honey Bee Stamps Bold Alphabet, Concord & 9th Monster Love Stamp Set and Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Border Frames to complete the card.  
I was terrified to cut into a background that I could not replace, but I did it! *Ü*




 Jammie used the new Paper Next Dolls Raccoon Smootch Digi Stamp and Copic Markers: 110


How did it turn out?  Would you like to win this card?  All you have to do is follow all three of us on Instagram and leave a comment.  The winner will be drawn Sunday the 26th of January and announced on Instagram.
