Justin Adkins Scene Building: Cookie Making Die Set Sprinkles 6x8 Layering Stencil Set

Before we jump into today’s project, I wanted to let you know that I sometimes use affiliate links to share my favorite products. Don’t worry, these links won’t cost you a dime – they’re just little crafty helpers behind the scenes that help support me if you use them to make a purchase! Let’s dive into today’s creative journey together!
Hello everyone! Justin Adkins here, and today I am baking up something sweet using some brand new products from the Picket Fence Studios January 2024 Release! This card features the new Scene Building: Cooking Making Die Set, along with the Sprinkles 6" x 8" Layering stencil and the new Mixed Media products!
Below is a list of Picket Fence Studio products I used to create this card:
To start this card, I took some white cardstock and applied thin, yet solid layers of the Purple Rain Paper Glaze Luxe, Chocolate Frosting Paper Glaze Luxe, Red Velvet Paper Glitz and Buttercream Paper Glitz. I let these panels dry out entirely. Once dry, I used the Scene Building: Cookie Making Die Set to cut out the various cookie toppings. I also cut out some additional topping die cuts from red cardstock from my stash.
I die cut a handful of cookie bases from kraft cardstock, distressed the edges with brown ink, and then decorated them with the various glitzy, glazed, and paper die cuts from my previous step using liquid adhesive. Using gray cardstock, I also die cut out the cookie tray from the die set, distressed the edge with a darker gray ink, and set this die cut aside along with all my decorated cookies.
To create my background, I grabbed a piece of light tan cardstock from my stash, cut it down to A2 size, and used the Sprinkles Layering stencil with Red, Purple, Dark Brown, and Light Brown ink to blend out 4 of the 5 sprinkle layers. For my final layer, I applied the Buttercream Paper Glitz over the stencil and set it aside to dry. What was nice about the sprinkles being smaller is that the Paper Glitz sprinkles dried up pretty quickly!
Once my background was dried out, I trimmed my panel down to about 4.125" x 5.375" and adhered it onto an A2-sized piece of Red Glitter Cardstock.
One tip that I like to share when you are using mixed media pastes is that if you are applying it so that it goes off the edge of the paper (like me using a stencil, in this instance), often times you will see where you can trim off the excess with scissors. I personally don't feel like you get a very clean cut from this. When I use these pastes, I like to make my panel slightly over-sized, like how I started my panel by being A2-size, and then trim it down to size with my guillotine trimmer after everything is dried. This gives me clean cut edges that are card ready!
Next, I heat embossed the sentiment "life is short, make it sweet" from the Lick the Bowl Sentiment Stamp set in white powder onto dark purple paper. I used foam tape and adhered my sentiment strip across the center of my cookie sheet. Once in place, I then adhered my cookies onto the pan.
I adhered my entire pan to my sprinkle background, adhered my panel to an A2-sized card base, and finished by adhering a few sequins from the Spring has Sprung Sequin Mix! My card was finished!
Thank you so much for stopping by the Picket Fence Studios blog today! I hope this card leaves you with some sweet inspiration for creating a project using some of our January 2024 release goodies!
