Today's post is extra exciting as today is the day the Picket Fence Studio's STAMPtember collaboration set will be revealed!
It's full of sassy and fun sentiments, as well as a thirst quenching lineup of cocktails image to colour in!
Due to Covid and slower post, I did not actually get my set at the time of writing this so I have used a digital download. I do apologise if they sizes are a little off, I'm quite severely technologically challenged and my printer is a piece of crap, but I have done my best.
The fun thing about printing the stamps off, instead of stamping them traditionally, is that I was able to foil some of them. For instance, this card is very CAS but with the foil, it really sparkles!
All it needed were a few sequins from The Pink Lady Sequin Mix, and ta-da, done!
I used an ombré pink and gold foil on this one, and on another one I used Hot Pink. For this card I coloured the images in with Copics before foiling the outlines, as I wasn't sure if the markers might scratch off the foil.
This one I trimmed down with a stitched rectangular diecut, and added it to a card base with a gold leopard patterned paper. To bring in the colour of the patterned paper, I used sequins from the Irish coffee Sequin Mix.
As I printed off the entire set each time, I had a lot of sentiments. A few of these I foiled in Turquoise foil, and I ended up using one of these on my third card. These cocktails are not foiled, just coloured in, and then that was trimmed down. This strip I wrapped around an already made background.
Foil is really hard to photograph well, but I have tried showing off both that and the Glimmer Paste. I do wish I could show you this in real life though! It's so sparkly!
My final card is also a pre-made background, where I ink blended some Distress Oxide colours on a panel and then made gold water colour by mixing some Golden Rose Paper Glaze with water. With this, I then drew fat lines of gold across it to add some fabulous shimmer.
The sentiment 'Wine is to women as duct tape is to men. It fixes everything' cracks me up. I'm not a wine drinker but I have many, many friends who swear it is the only thing keeping them sane in these weird times we live in now.
Well, with that, I am all done for today! Thank you so much for stopping by, I really hope you found some inspiration here with me. If you want this set, make sure to hop on over to Simon Says Stamp and nab it right away, as once it's sold out, it will not be restocked.
