Hi everyone! It is the most wonderful day of the month here at Picket Fence Studios. Release day! Jen Timko here with today’s post and I get to share two card using some of the new products. The whole team has lots to share so make sure you go visit and see all the inspiration.
To start, I have a card using the new BFF Claire. Isn’t she fabulous?! I colored her using Copic Markers on XPressIt Blending Card paper then cut her out using her coordinating die. She seemed like one for a bright and happy background so I found some coordinating papers in my stash that were perfect. The sentiment comes from Forgot to Say Thank You. Like all the “Girls”, Claire is such a joy to color and I’m sure you will all fall in love with her just like the team has!
For my next card, I needed something that was a little more masculine. So I decided to use the new Polka Dot Grunge stamp. You see, I wanted to make an anniversary card for my DH. I thought this would be the right way to start. I stamped the image using a pretty lime green ink and then used a turquoise card stock to accent. Using the same card stock, I used the new Seriously word die and used the coordinating backing die to cut out some vellum. I like how the vellum helps the word pop off the background. I used a circle die on the blue card stock and popped that layer up on foam squared to add dimension. Some fun coordinating sequins are a good touch (and not too girly).
For the inside of the card, I had a happy discovery. The style of one of the stamps from Ways to Say Happy Anniversary matches the die on the front. Needless to say, that was an easy choice for the inside of my card.
I hope that you will enjoy the entire June Release as much as I have! So much to love! Thanks for stopping in today. Have a great weekend.
