December Release Day at Picket Fence Studios!

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

Today I am sharing one of the new stencils: Quatrefoil Bouquet. It is such a beautiful stencil that could be used for so many occasions. My card today is a wedding card.



I used my Life Changing Brushes with Bundled Sage Distress Oxide ink. Isn't is a lovely design? My Always Word Die is cut from Curious Metallic Cardstock (CutCardStock), and the card base is the same. I added a crocheted butterfly (Martha Stewart) and a few rhinestones for bling.


It's a fabulous release, so head over to Picket Fence Studios to see it all! There is so MUCH MORE to check out! And I will see you back tomorrow for more of the new release!


    

Freshly Made Sketches #415

It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is Narelle! 


I have had this delightful patterned paper from Harmonie in my stash for at least four years. It's so cute I didn't want to cut into it. But today's sketch gave the perfect opportunity to show off these adorable polar bears and their sweet faces. I added a sentiment from Taylored Expressions, and some of my favorite Krenik silver thread for the second side element. A little sparkle from some silver glitter cardstock, and it's a perfect little greeting to mail! As you can see, I turned the sketch on its side.



I hope you will join us with your take on the sketch this week! Our challenge is open until 3 PM EDT on Monday. Click on the links on the FMS blog by each photo to see what my teammates have created on their blogs!








    

Freshly Made Sketches #414

It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is Karren, and she has designed a fun, contemporary sketch that leaves a lot of room for your creative designing!


I am using some new Paper Smooches dies for today's card and also entering this in the November "Anything Goes" Challenge on their blog. The Lovely Snowflakes and hearts were cut from a brayer cleaning sheet I had for cleaning acrylic paint off of my brayer. The Let It Snow sentiment fit perfectly with the sketch! For background texture, I added a dry embossed background of snow. A little sparkle from some silver glitter cardstock, and it's a perfect little greeting to mail!

Freshly Made Sketches #413

It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is Cécile, and she has designed a sketch that is open to your interpretation!



I am using one of my favorite fall sets with colors for a winter feel. We had a lovely fall day of 54 degrees on Tuesday and yesterday my entire town was shut down due to the snow that started about 7 AM and didn't quit until late last night. So I was inspired by frosty colors, but am so grateful for all the blessings in my life. 

I chose Concord and 9th's Lace Leaf and the coordinating dies, along with CutCardStock's Curious Metallic CS and SU!'s Going Gray for a card base. I love how it turned out!

I hope you will join us with your take on the sketch this week! Our challenge is open until 3 PM EDT on Monday. Click on the links on the FMS blog by each photo to see what my teammates have created on their blogs!

I adore this bee! Doesn't he have the cutest expression? He obviously hasn't had his coffee yet! This is Caffeinated Bee and the matching die from The Rabbit Hole Designs. The sentiment is perfect for both coffee and the bee!
