Picket Fence Studios + Spectrum Noir = Beauty!

I had a lot of fun making this card last night. I have had the Picket Fence Studios Dany Girl Stamp set, set aside for a little while wanting to colour it!

Here is how I made it:

  • Cut a piece of Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock to 16cm x 12.5 cm
  • Using your Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool line up your Dany Girl Stamp to the lower right hand side of the card and stamp unto Spectrum Noir Finesse Alcohol Proof Ink.
  • Colour using Spectrum Noir Markers.
  • Using Masking Fluid, cover your coloured image and allow to dry.
  • Using your Picket Fence Life Changing Blending Brushes and Spectrum Noir Harmony Water Reactive Inkpads in the Verdant Green Trio Pack blend a mix of the 3 ink colours,
  • Choose a funky stencil and ink through the stencil using your brushes.
  • Stamp your sentiment in the darkest green then re-stamp using your Wow! Embossing pad and sprinkle on come clear embossing powder and heat set.
  • Rub off the masking fluid.
  • For the embossing powder around the edge I mixed my own colour using some Wow Embossing powders in: Champers, Metalline Green and Lime Rickey. Mix these in an empty Wow Embossing Powder jar.
  • Using your Wow Freestyle tool ink the edge of the card and sprinkle with your mix, heat set.
  • Apply some Spectrum Noir Metallic Wax through your Stencil.
  • Draw some swirls with your Art Glitter Glue and Sprinkle on some glitter, allow to dry.
  • Matt and Layer with Neenah heavyweight card and Gold Luxury cardstock.

So….Picket Fence Studios + Spectrum Noir = Beauty!

Magic Picture Changer Fun from Lawn Fawn!

I have been wanting to make some cards with this fabulous Interactive Die from Lawn Fawn since I attended the class at Creativation, so I finally managed to have a play last night. I made this sweet little Easter card and plan to do some more today.

For those that don’t normally make interactive cards, this may look complicated but it is actually very easy, and Lawn Fawn has a great video tutorial which I will link you to at the end.


Here are the supplies that I used:

A little more Tropical with Catherine Pooler!

I am so LOVING this release from Catherine Pooler and I have been working on more cards today so I thought I would pop a quick tutorial up for you 🙂

You’re so tweet – how cute is that?!

Here is how I made this sweet Tropical card:

  • Cut a piece of Catherine Pooler Stamping Cardstock to 16 cm x 9.5cm
  • Using The Toucan Do It Stamp Set from Catherine Pooler’s latest release stamp out the two birds in an alcohol proof inkpad.
  • Use the double flower from the same set and stamp along the edge of the lower half of the card with your alcohol proof ink pad.
  • Apply a thin layer of Nuvo Making Fluid using a fine tip brush, allow to air dry completely.
  • Once dry using your Picket Fence Life Changing Blender Brush, blend Shea Butter Ink along the top of the card, then Bellini, and Finally Party Dress along the bottom.
  • With your finger rub off the Nuvo Masking Fluid.
  • Colour the birds and flowers using your Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers.
  • Stamp some flowers on the card using Shea Butter and Bellini Ink, cut two flowers out using the Toucan Do It Coordinating Dies, adhere with foam squares.
  • Add Wow! Glass Slipper Sparkles to the centres of the flowers.
  • Stamp a Border using the Good Vibes Stamp Set along the top left hand side of the card with and embossing ink, sprinkle on Wow! Wanderlust Embossing Glitter and heat set.
  • Mat and layering using gold glitter yardstick and pastel card.
