Freshly Made Sketches #393

It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Lee Ann is our hostess for this week's sketch. 

 
I am sending this card to my son. He preached an amazing sermon on heaven a couple of Sundays ago ("Good Heavens"), and I loved his points about "wonder" (the series' title). You can find his sermon video HERE. Definitely worth a listen.

I made my card using a watercolor piece I had "doodled" in a sunny yellow. I used gold washi tape and black cardstock for the under layers. The stamp is from Unity Stamp Co. I thought it was a perfect fit to reiterate what he was saying in his sermon, and to thank him for his message! He mentions some answers to prayer for our family, and for me personally, and I am so thankful for the power of prayer.

June Release for Picket Fence Studios!

It's an exciting day for Picket Fence Studios - the June Release! There are so MANY amazing products in this release - new stencils, stamps, and coordinating dies!

Today I am sharing four cards that I made for the release. But I'm sure you want to see the ENTIRE release, so I am going to just highlight the cards and sets I made, and then later this week, post each individually with the details! I know you'll want to head over to the site and see it all!

First up is the adorable ONE HOT CHICK. This set is going to go fast (because there's another to complement)! I love these gal chicks and their sassy little bodies. The chicken feed is made with the new WATERCOLOR BRUSH STROKES STENCIL (a must have!).
They are so much fun to color! And you can save 20% with the Bundle!

Next is one of the new Word Dies: SERIOUSLY. I can think of so many times you can use this die, and for many different occasions! I paired it with the previously released DANDELION WISHES:

One of the new stamps that is perfect for backgrounds and texture is POLKA DOT GRUNGE. I paired it with one of the sentiments from the new NATURAL STATE OF SARCASM and one of the previously released Beautiful Girls - MARTI.

Finally, another new Word Die: LOVELY, along with previously released RUFFLED PEONY BOUQUET:

It's a fabulous release, so head over to Picket Fence Studios to see it all! There is MUCH MORE to check out! Be sure to stop back this week for details on my cards, and a PFS Giveaway from ME!

Mermaid Escape!

I absolutely love this June Paper Door Kit from Whimsy Stamps: MERMAIDS!

There are only a handful of kits left - everyone else loves it too, and they are almost SOLD OUT! So grab yours before it's too late!

Here are two cards I have made. The first uses the amazing papers that come with the kit:
Aren't those jellies the cutest? I did stamp the sentiment and the bubbles in the circle - and those come with the kit too!

My second card for today is made using the bonus stamp set: Dreamy Mermaid. If I were a mermaid, I would be a pink one! I wanted this to be all sparkly, so added Nuvo Glitter Pen to her tail, and made a panel of glitter cardstock.

The background is a smooshed watercolor panel. I colored the mermaid tail with Copic markers. Find all the details of the Paper Door Kit HERE! And be sure to grab one of the last kits before they disappear!

Freshly Made Sketches #392

It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Jacquie is our hostess for this week's sketch, which had me stumped for awhile! I wanted a one layer card, and in the end, it almost turned out that way! Take a peek:



I made my background for another project using Distress Inks and smooshing, but it didn't turn out like I wanted. So into the "envelope" it went. Today when I looked, I thought it made the perfect background for this bird I have been wanting to use. Grass and sky and a little abstract - which matches the art style of the bird.  Don't miss that little heart1 See it?

I added the chipboard flowers from my stash (that was the challenging part for me - to find the right thing), and it's ready to mail!
