Conversation Hearts


Welcome to day 3 of my series, 14 days of valentine inspiration. 
Today's card uses the same set as yesterday, Heart Candy by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 



To create this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. I randomly stamped the heart along the side from top to bottom with colors to mimic the conversation hearts then stamped the greeting in each heart with the outline color.

New Product Alert



Hello and welcome to day 2 of my series 14 Days of Valentines inspiration. Todays card uses a new release set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and a new product by My Sweet Petunia. I have been at Creativation (cha) for the past week and have had so much fun seeing lots of my crafty friends and seeing all the new product.


To create my card I used a new product from My Sweet Petunia, the Cut-Align.
This product allowed me to cut out the window of this card with a breeze. I don't normally use a craft knife because of cutting my fingers. you can watch THIS VIDEO to see how it works, it's amazing! 

I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. I stamped the candy box from the Heart Candy set on the panel and then used the Cut-Align to cut out the window portion. I colored it using Copic Markers. I placed some heart sequins in a cellophane bag and added behind the window and adhered the panel to the card base

It's Release Day at Picket Fence Studios




It's release day at Picket Fence Studios and there are some amazing stamps, dies and stencils in this release. We are at Creativation this weekend showing all the new goodies.

My first sample uses the two of the new sets Boho Zebra and Wild Heart Gypsy Soul. To create this card I started with a top folding card base, I masked off the bottom halo and stamped the Wild Heart Gyspy Soul image and colored it using Copic markers. Next I stamped and colored the Boho Zebra and cut it out using the coordinating die and popped it up on the front of the card.



My second card uses the Boho Bull, to create this card I started with a white top folding card base, I stamped the image using our Black Intense ink and colore dit using Copic markers and cut it out using the coordinating die. To finish the card, I out a circle of faux wood paper and then popped the image on top and added the greeting.


For the third sample I used the set Vortex of Fish, I stamped them in versamark ink and embossed it with Seth Apter's Deep Sea embossing powder. I created the background by using the Life Changing blender brushes and distress oxide ink in Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Blueprint. To finish the card, I added the greeting and embossed it in white to contrast against the background
