Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a pretty little card to share and a few little step by step tips on simple colouring technique. The stamps and coordinating dies are from Picket Fence Studios. The Que Sera, Sera collection.  Here are all of the details. Step one is to stamp the images you would like to use onto white cardstock using Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. Now I gathered the colours that I wanted to use on my images. A little trick of mine, is that I keeping the backing from my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares. They can be used as blending surfaces. I always have a little pile of them at my desk for just this purpose. Often when I am colouring I like to add colour straight to cardstock in the areas where I want the colour the darkest. Here is…

Creating cards with background dies is my latest obsession. Speaking of OBSESSION – Impression Obsession has a variety of MUST HAVE background dies that are absolutely perfect for jazzing up your cards or being the star of the show! Here is the latest card I put together. First I cut out several of the Sunburst Background die from Impression Obsession using black cardstock. I adhered three of them together and let the third one peek slightly from behind so that it is blacker around the sun circle. I pulled out my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes – these are a serious blending game changer.  I used them to blend THREE of my favourite colours of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink onto a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. These three colours look like a beautiful sunset! Using Art Glitter glue with a fine metal tip I adhered the…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a couple of cards I created with the Ruffled Peony Bouquet stamp set from Picket Fence Studios.  Picket Fence Studios is a family run business out of Louisiana and they manufacture some simply stunning stamps and stencils.  Use the entire peony bouquet on the card, or snip out one or two flowers and some extra leaves.  Ah, peonies.  Makes me think of spring. I stamped onto watercolour paper using Ranger embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.   I coloured the image with  Nuvo watercolor pencils from Tonic Studios..I then added a touch of glitter and more intense colour with Kirarich glitter highlighters from Zebra Pen.  These highlighter pens were just the perfect shade for my peony flowers and leaves. I used Tonic Studios Craft Perfect mirror and glitter cardstock from this mixed cardstock pack for my card base.  I have a weakness…

I can’t stop playing with this A Tree Die from Picket Fence Studios. Here is a quick little card I put together using it. I started by die cutting out 3 trees from Ranger Simon Hurley Create cardstock. I adhered two of the trees together and coloured the third with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink. I then adhered the coloured tree on top of the two trees with some of the white showing behind. Next, I blended three shades of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink onto a piece of cardstock. I used my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes for a perfect blend. Next, I layed the Funky Leaves stencil from Picket Fence Studios on the background and added some white Distress ink. The look is very soft and subtle. I spritzed with water cause I LOVE those white water dots! With my Ranger Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint…

This card by Connie Nichol is not only a GIGGLE maker – it might just be the “sunniest” card EVER!!!!  To create this card Connie laid her Picket Fence Studios stencil down on a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Super Stock. She then applied Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink to create the sunburst. Using Therm O Web icraft Mixed Media Adhesive she adhered the sequins over the inked design. She then stamped the Picket Fence Studios sentiment and adhered it to the card. Easy Peasy! Connie, you can mail me this card ANYTIME! Happy Sunday everyone!

Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I have such a fun little card to share featuring a cute little stamp set from Picket Fence Studios and coordinating dies. I also used some of my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products and Ranger inks. I started by creating a simple blended background for my card using white cardstock, a Ranger blending tool & mat, and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I was going for a moody sunset kind of backdrop. To add a slightly distressed border I stamped the Ranger Tim Holtz Early Espresso Distress Oxide ink onto my mat, misted it with water, and then drug the edges of the blended background through it. Let dry. This is also when I stamped the card sentiment in the bottom left-hand corner of the card using Ranger Archival ink. I stamped the super cute…

Hello everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog! I’ve been looking at stamps differently lately. I like to see if there are ways that I can deconstruct the different design elements so that I can cut it apart and create layers.  The Beauty and Song stamp by Picket Fence Studios is a stamp that has a lot of opportunities to go a bit crazy with layers. Here’s how I put this one together.  Step 1. Stamp the image on cardstock and use the Brother ScanNCut to precisely cut the stamped image from the cardstock. TIP: This stamp has some open ends. The Brother ScanNCut scans the outside edge and requires a black edge.  The opened-ended leaves on this stamp needed to be closed in. The Brother ScanNCut did an amazing job of cutting out this complex stamp. I was suitably impressed with how it cut perfectly…
