Hello, friends! Justin here from Just a Note by Justin, and today I am stopping by to share a card that I created using some new products from the Picket Fence Studios May Release!  I love the new Baby Critters stamp set because it gives you so many fun possible ways to come up with fun projects to integrate these cuties! PLUS, they work perfectly with the new Critter Den Scene Building Die as well!
Here is a list of Picket Fence Studios products that I used to create this card:
Now, let's get into the details for how I put this card together!
I always like to start my projects by coloring up my images, so I stamped out my Baby Critters and colored them up with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out, and I set them aside from later.

I took a piece of blending cardstock and began blending it up with Distress Oxide Inks. I blended Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot to make a blue-ombré night sky. Once my panel was blended, I splattered it with some water, placed the You Make the World Shimmer A2 Stencil over the panel, and applied a solid layer of Silver Twinkly Lights Paper Glaze Luxe. I removed the stencil, set my panel aside to dry, and cleaned off my stencil immediately.
Using a piece of blue cardstock, I die cut the Scene Building: Critter Den from the paper and then ink blended the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink.
I then took a piece of navy cardstock, ink blended the bottom ledge with Black Soot ink and die cut the panel with the Slimline Tall Grass Die. I also took a piece of scrap gray cardstock, blended the bottom of the panel with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.
The last element worked on was my sentiment "thinking of you", which I stamped from the Swanky Sentiments: Sympathy stamp set, heat embossed with white embossing powder, and die cut with the coordinating die set.
I then began to build my scene. I took my ink-blended panel and trimmed it down to 4.125"  x 5.375". I adhered my grass piece to the bottom of the panel, and the ground piece directly on top of it. I trimmed off the excess from the edge of the card. I adhered my critter den onto the panel, and then used foam tape to adhere my critters and sentiment. I finished the panel by adhering a few embellishments from the Gem Mix: Starry Skies, and adhering the whole panel to an A2-size panel of dark blue cardstock. I adhered the panel to an A2-card base and was completed!
Thank you so much for stopping by the Picket Fence Studios blog today to check out this sweet little critter creation! I hope this card inspires you to make something adorable with the May Release!
