Picket Fence Release Day & a Giveaway!

It's release day at Picket Fence Studios and I can't wait to show you the new items in the store!  First up is the very chic Claire.  For the background, I inked the new diamond patterned stencil with distress inks, and spritzed with water then placed it on cardstock.  Lastly, I added a sentiment from a fun little set of six sentiments all with the word "because".  

I can't get enough of the coordinating dies.  The dies make it so easy to create cards with colorful backgrounds.  Create the background, color a BFF Girl and die cut, no tricky fussy cutting needed!




For my next card, I created a fun outdoor scene with a simple watercolor background.  

I colored the hen house then die cut it with the coordinating die.  I also colored one of the chickens and die cut it.  I took an Exacto knife and made a slice in the doorway just big enough to slide the chicken in so that it's peeping out the doorway.


(This card is for the F4A486 Challenge at SCS)

Not only does the June release have a cute chicken coop set but there is also this fun chicken set with eggs and coordinating dies too!


My last project is bright and cheerful.  First I used a stencil to add brushstrokes then I added the lovely two-piece word die cut.  Easy and fun!


You can check out the entire new release HERE!

  1. i love that background with the stencil. that turned out very cool. and the chicken peeking out, ha ha...that is so cute.

  2. All the cards are beautiful, but my fave is the first one, I love the cute Claire stamp and the BG you have created is awesome.
    My fave way to create background is using stencil and inking.

  3. All cards are lovely.. they look amazing..Another great release by PF.. I have to try your stencil and distress ink technique, it looks abstract. I love to paint, so I prefer to create background scene on my own using watercolor or copic if time permits.. Otherwise stencil is the easiest way..

  4. More lovely cards. Really like the first one you shared - she looks as though she is ready for a fun day.

  5. My favorite backgrounds are made with distress oxide inks and stencils:)

  6. I just love how you created the stencil background - and the colours are gorgeous! I've lately started using stencils again (they've come a long way!) plus I love watercoloured backgrounds.

  7. Awesome cards! I love Claire, and the fun chicken sets too! The diamond patterned stencil is fabulous, and I love that pretty background you created with it!

  8. Love you cards!!! The chicken sets may already be in my cart!! I love thr watercolor stripe stencil too. My favorite way to do a background is probably with blending brushes and stencils.

  9. Love your card! My favorite back ground lately have been with the stencils and life changing brushes w distressed oxide inks

  10. Beautiful cards Angie. My favourite backgrounds recently have been made using brushos.

  11. My favorite background to make is usually something watercolored. I also really enjoy making alcohol ink backgrounds.

  12. Love this super cute girl from PFS and love the way you have used the sentiment die


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
