Little Lovelies and Tiny Tags

All my favorite things in this card...tiny images, tags, plaid, blush pink...yep, I used them all!
Plus a new leaf set and I'm all about this color palette for fall.

Let's start from the bottom up.  I used the Plaid Stencil on the cardbase with Blush ink.  
The big tag is the Jumbo Tag Die you see here so often.  
The itty bitty tags are brand new set of three and are called Tiny Tags dies set.  
The mini embroidery hoops ARE ADORABLE, and are the smaller of two sizes in the Embroidery Hoops die set.  
The stamping is from Little Lovelies stamp set and the leaves are the new Mini Autumn Leaves die set.

I have so many ideas for these little tags and man, these mini embroidery hoops are SO cute!  
What do you think of these colors together

Picket Fence Studios September Release

Hello Stampers and welcome to the Picket Fence Studios September Release and Blog Hop.  
This one is a little different that usual as many of the items for this month have been delayed due to the COVID-19 issues.
We do have fun new stencils and a really cool repeating pattern sweater stamp that I love and a several other things.  
Like all releases, I have a few things to show you, but please check the website for the full release.  Also, unlike other releases, I have combined the new with existing products to show them off.
I am in love with the Sweater Pattern Maker because it is SO EASY to line up in all directions.  Whether you want to go wide or go long, it matches every time!  I've embossed it here in white for a wintery sweater look and have added the new Fancy Christmas Sentiments. The gnome is not new this release...but he sure is cute!




A Gnome Winter Stamp Set and Die 

Craftiness is Happiness, don't you think?  I do!  This sentiment is not new but the beautiful stencil behind it is!  This is a really pretty one for adding several colors or all one color.  Make sure you have several sizes of the Life Changing Blender Brushes for all the areas!





I used the Sweater Pattern Maker here again with fall colored strips of cardstock.  I stamped over the stripes with Versamark and embossed in clear embossing powder.  Again lining it up to stamp twice on the card was a breeze!
The pumpkin and sentiment are from the World of Octobers stamp set that was released last month.




This stamp set is simple called Dragon Fruit....and it has lots of dragon fruits for ya!  I did an ink blended background on this card and stamped the dragon fruit in black.  The hello in the stamp set matches the font of the stand alone Hello die, one of my favorites!  






This stencil background is the same floral pattern as above, but is a slimline stencil for the new slimline cards.  Same pattern, different shape but as you can see here, it works on regular size cards too.  I used the tiny hello from the Dragon Fruit set and paired it with the stand along Hello die.
We have a blog hop this month!  Your next stop is the amazing and colorful Karen ReĆ”tegui.
