Happy 4th of July and a SALE

I had some fun with the new chicken sets from Picket Fence Studios making this fun patriotic chicken coop.

The background was made with Color Burst to give the illusion of fireworks and then I added a swipe of green in along the bottom with an ink pad. I used a Life Changing Blender Brush to help blend the green ink for a grassy look. I colored the chicken coop (The Hen House & Coordinating dies) and cut it out. I cut the door out and placed a chicken from One Hot Chick behind the opening. The flag was something I had in the drawer of crazy stuffs forever It is a cupcake decoration (I removed the toothpick and made a flag pole from a piece of cardstock). See below for all the links and sale information!

Picket Fence Studios New Release!

There’s a new release at Picket Fence Studios today and I get to play along with the Design Team this month! Wheeeeeee! I’ll be sharing more projects with the new stamps so check back! 

I just had to use some chickens for my first project! This card uses One Hot Chick and the Seriously Word Die. I used my Life Changing Blender Brushes along with  Oxide inks (Twisted Citron & Salty Ocean) to create the background. Then I used my finger in a dab of white acrylic paint to make the clouds. I stamped the chickens and phrase on top with black ink an my Mini MISTI.  I stamped another set of chickens on watercolor paper and painted them with watercolors. When they were dry I cut out just the bodies and layered the on my card. I then added the Seriously Word Die.

This card makes me laugh… we have a bit of a stray cat issue that my neighbor and I have been tackling. So yeah, fitting. I started out with a kraft card that I stenciled with Picked Raspberry Oxide ink and Watercolor Brush Stroke Stencil and my Life Changing Blender Brushes.  I stamped Litter of Cats with my Mini MISTI and watercolored. Once dry I cut the cat panel out and attached it to my card and then added my sentiment.

…and last but not least is a card using that looks a whole lot like my friend Giovana’s dog Milo.  I made the background by adding tape and using Life Changing Blender Brushes along with  Oxide ink (Cracked Pistachio) to add the upper shadow and then repositioned the tape and used the Dandelion Stencil with  Salty Ocean in on the bottom section. Then I stamped the sentiment from State of Sarcasm with black ink and my Mini MISTI. I stamped the dog from Lucky Puppy watercolored him and then added him on top.

I stamped two flowers and leaves (Elegant Asters stamp set and Elegant Asters die set ) with Picket Fence Black Hybrid Ink on my Mini MISTI. I watercolored the background and flowers. I stamped the 3rd flower, watercolored and cut it out with scissors and applied it on top. The edges were distressed with a Life Changing Blender Brush and Peacock Feather ink. I added Nuvo Drops (Copper Penny) to the flower centers.

To create the background on my next card I used Life Changing Blender Brushes along with Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Oxide inks. I masked a pattern with Frog tape and blended color onto each section. I then took a little piece of sand paper and distressed the paper by rubbing bits of the inked paper here and there. Next I used my Mini MIST to stamp the butterfly with Picket Fence Black Hybrid Ink, watercoloring and then die cutting using the matching die (Elegant Asters stamp set and Elegant Asters die set)  and the Hello die.
