Hi friends! Justin Adkins here, and today I am up on the Picket Fence Studios blog sharing an incredibly colorful card using some brand new products from the February 2024 Release, which dropped into the shop just 2 days ago! This card combines the new Two Big Beautiful Butterfly Die Set with the Black Mascara Paper Glaze Luxe applied over the Polka Dot Scarf Stencil! Let's get into the full details about how this card came together!
Here is a list of Picket Fence Studios products used to create this card:
I started off my card by die cutting the "straight-on" butterfly from the 2 Big Beautiful Butterflies Die Set from white cardstock. I also die cut the outline of this die from vellum. I splattered the new Kiwi Lime Paper Splatter Watercolor onto my white butterfly, let it dry, and then adhered it to the vellum outline piece. I set the butterfly aside for later.
Next, I grabbed a piece of watercolor cardstock, trimmed to A2-size, and sprayed it with a little water. Using a Pink, Yellow and Teal Spray Stain, I sprayed each color into a designated corner or side of the card (mentally, I divided my cards into equal thirds and tried to spray the colors as equally as I could). Because the paper was already wet, the colors bled together and began to form a rainbow of colors.
Once this panel was dry, I splattered some Black Magic Paper Splatter Watercolor and let it dry. Once fully dry, I placed the Polka Dot Scarf Stencil on top of the panel and unevenly spread some splotches of the new Black Eyeliner Paper Glaze Luxe. I removed my stencil and washed it immediately. Once my panel was entirely dry, I trimmed it down to 4" x 5.25" and adhered it to a 4.125" x 5.375" panel of black cardstock to give it a bit of a frame.
I wanted a simple sentiment, so I grabbed the new Bugs & Kisses Stamp Set and heat embossed the sentiment "hi", along with a couple of the provided heart images, in white embossing powder on black cardstock. I used the coordinating dies to cut the sentiment and hearts out. I was now ready to begin putting everything together.
I adhered my main panel to an A2-sized card base, which provided another frame of sorts, using liquid adhesive. I also used liquid adhesive to adhere my butterfly image and white hearts. I used foam tape to adhere my "hi" sentiment", which I tucked near one of the butterfly's wings. Finally, I reached for the Black Russian Sequin Mix and applied some of the white sequins to my card for a little extra glitz. My card was fully complete!
Thank you so very much for stopping by the Picket Fence Studios Blog today for some colorful inspiration using the brand new February Release! I hope this card inspires you to break into yours stash and get crafty with the new adorable critters from Picket Fence Studios!
