More Picket Fence Studios Release Day Goodness

 Hello crafty friends!  Yesterday was the Picket Fence Studios January Release Day and today I am over at the Picket Fence Studios Blog sharing a couple of new Release cards so I thought I would share them here too!   This release is so huge that you are going to have to check it all out HERE at the store!  But before you go, I have a few samples to share with you!

 First, up Picket Fence Studios has three new Paper Glazes.  They are soft and sweet.  For this card, I used Mint Hydrangea Paper Glaze with the Coloring Book Stencil. I created a Diamond Cut-out top layer with the Slimline Die Cutting System.  I added the Welcome Die and the new Spring Fling Sequins Mix. Lastly, beneath the card are two of the beautiful Slim Line Rainbow Envelopes.

Up Next, I have another slimline to share only this time I have switched the orientation.  For the background, I have stamped the 4x4 Falling hearts and then I added a top layer using circles from the Slim Line Die Cutting System. I made a faux shaker by simply adding a sprinkle of Green Fairy Sequins to each circle.  I die cut the new Always sentiment out three times and stamped LOVE from Wild Peonies.  Wild Peonies only a beautiful floral set but it also has wonderful sentiments too.   Lastly, I have my card resting on the new Slim Line Neutral envelopes!

There is so much more to see!  I haven't even touched on the new Gem Mixes, the 1 oz jars  or half the new stamps and dies so for a look at the entire January Release stop by HERE. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look today!

January Picket Fence Release

 Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Picket Fence Studios January Release Day!  There are new stencils, sequin mixes, stamps, dies, and a brand new line of gems and slimline envelopes! Oh, my goodness, this release is so huge that you are going to have to check it all out HERE on the website!  But before you go, I hope you will check out a few samples I created for you!    So let's jump to it!

First up, I created a Slimline card with the Slim Line Die Cutting System and the Slim Line Dashes Stencil.  The sentiment and envelope image is from Crafty Lifestyle.  We all know that to craft or not to craft is never the question!  :)  The pens and marker are from a little set called Color Like a Bird Sings.  The staging behind the card is from the NEW Slim Line Rainbow Envelope line and for fun, I added a dash of the new Green Fairy Sequins.  

When the card is flipped around it has a fun surprise!  I added the lovely poem describing why we make cards and a few images from the Oh, So Many Cards set.  The set includes several watermarks to place on the back of the card that will go with your signature!  I staged this card with more Slim Line Rainbow Envelopes

Next up is one of my favorites from the January Release.  My love for clouds goes back to my 7 year-old-self, lying on the grass watching the clouds fly across the sky.  My much older self still loves watching clouds and I love putting them on cards.  Picket Fence Studios is releasing two new stencils for cloud making.  On this card I am featuring the 52 Layers of Clouds Stencil and the Slim Line Rising Sun Stencil.  The Slim Line Short Grass Die is fabulous and extends the full length of a slimline card!  I added "thinking of you" from the More Fancy Sentiments set and now you can purchase the Coordinating Die for exquisite sentiment styling!  I couldn't resist adding the bird silhouettes from the Sleeping Tree Set. Lastly, in the background of the card, I show two of the beautiful envelopes from the Slim Line Rainbow Envelopes.  

I have so much to share so I hope you will join me tomorrow either on the PFS Blog or here for a look at more NEW Release samples!  For a look at ALL of the new items right now click  HERE.

January IO Favorites Hop & Giveaway

Hello!  Welcome to the new Impression Obsession Favorites Hop!   I think it's going to be a blast seeing what the team favorites are for January! Not only is it going to be fun to check out the favorites but there will be prizes given away too!  Check out all the details listed below! 

It's always hard to choose a favorite but the next two cards are among my favorites.  The first is the fun Crayon Element and the Sit in Silence sentiment.  There are a lot of different ways to use the Crayon Element stamp but I think it's fun to use it as a rainbow.  I added a cat from the Cat Set because there is nothing sweeter than having my cat on my lap while I am playing on my phone.  :)  By the way in our house having a cat on the lap gets you service!  "can you please get me a drink? I have the cat on my lap."  Doesn't matter who you are, one of us will serve the other when the elderly cat is on a lap!  :)  Of course, this sentiment could also be used for a significant other!  It's nice to hang out with my husband in silence and play on the phone!  Today we celebrate 31 years.  It's pretty cool after a year like we just had, that we can say, we would still rather be with one another than anyone else!

Next up, I stamped this lovely Together in Love sentiment on a Postage Stamp Cuts.  I added the sweet flower from the versatile Ribbon Box set.  I think the Ribbon Box is such a great value because there are so many ways to create with it!

Both of my favorites cards were inspired by this week's Art Nudge #43.
My colors are a little different but both cards are descriptive of the photo.  Togetherness, closeness, just plain hanging out together.

Now for the fun Hop Details: We will be giving away THREE Impression Obsession Grab Bags - so the more you comment through our Favorites Hop the more chances to win! Comments will be open until Monday, January 18th at midnight CT. All winners will be announced on Tuesday, January 19th on the Impression Obsession Blog.

The new stamps are available now! You can find them all HERE.

Next up is the super talented Anna Wight.  If you started the hop at my place, make sure that one of your stops is the Impression Obsession Blog!  :)  Good luck and thanks so much for stopping by!

My Sweet Petunia/The Rabbit Hole Designs Birthday Collaboration!


Today is a fun day as I get to create along with the MISTI team and celebrate a birthday with The Rabbit Hole Designs team!  I remember how I used my birthday money for my very first MISTI and how it changed my stamping life!  I use the MISTI every time I stamp.  As a matter of fact, I usually have two going at the same time.  I place my image in one MISTI and then I use another for the sentiment.  Or sometimes I work on several different cards at once!  

Today we are celebrating The Rabbit Hole Designs Birthday Bash!  The Rabbit Hole has the cutest line of caffeinated stamps and dies, and much much more!  They have soft blending brushes, stencils, dies, everything you might need to make a pretty project. I have had an absolute blast celebrating The Rabbit Hole Designs 2nd Birthday!  A birthday bash needs gifts, don't you think?  Well, we have them!  Both My Sweet Petunia and The Rabbit Hole Designs are giving away a $50.00 Gift Voucher each!  Head on over to My Sweet Petunia and The Rabbit Hole Designs Blog for more details!

You can find all of the fabulous new items at the Rabbit Hole Designs store

So how about a birthday card to start us off?  I used the new Party Time Stencil for the background.  Next, I colored the super yummy Just Cake in a way that I would love IRL!  I can't stand fussy cutting so I used the handy Just Cake Die to cut out the cake and the little candles!  

Here is one of the things I love about the MISTI.  I placed the two candles on the platform lid and then I quickly repeat stamped them by moving the paper.  I don't use an acrylic block even for small things anymore because it's just easier to use the MISTI.

My second card is this darling bunny couple Je t'amie!  Aren't they adorable!  Cute animal images get me every time!  This is a fun set with the added hearts so they can be placed anywhere in the scene. The background was created with the lovely Open Heart Stencil.  

To keep things nice and straight I use the Cut-Align for almost every card.  I love this set of rulers!  I love the weight, all of the markings, and best of all that one side is a 0 center!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today and celebrating with me!
