Picket Fence Studios-Holiday Release

Oh my goodness! I am pretty excited about today's post. It's our first official release with Picket Fence Studios. We have a whole lot of holiday fun lined up for you today. The team has been busy creating. Thanks for joining me. All the release details are over on the Picket Fence Studios blog, so be sure to start over there.

So let's get to it! I'll start with a jolly ol' Ho Ho HO! It's glittery and awesome and I combined a few of the new stamp sets. Oh, and I pulled out some Heat 'n Stick powder to glitterfy (that's a word, right??) my card front. The new All That Glitters stamp is so so cool! It's stamps a fun textured outline with an open space to add whatever your heart desires. Today I stamped All That Glitters with versamark, added some Heat 'n Stick powder and then topped it with some Tim Holtz distress glitter. I love how it looks a little like snow! 

I then used the Santa Mischief stamp set to add the sentiment and the jolly ol' Santa. I colored up Santa with my copics and finished the card off with some sequins and bakers twine. 

I have a love for polar bears. Anytime we go to the zoo I have to see the giraffes AND polar bears. I was thrilled to see this next stamp set in the release line up. The set is called A Bear Kind of Winter. The images are just soooo sweet! I colored one up with copics, using grey tones and added some color with his hat and scarf. 

I created a wintry scene with another new product that I squealed over when I opened it....CIRCLE Stencils! Yes, I'm yelling! I love a great frame and not having to use masking paper with my dies makes me sooooo so happy! I laid down the outer frame of the middle sized stencil (there are three different sizes and all of them include the positive and negative of the circles) and I used the blending brushes to add Distress Oxide ink in Broken China and Peacock Feathers. 

I cut some glittery snowflakes and topped them with a sweet little pink heart in the centers from Reverse Confetti. The sentiment is from A Bear Kind of Winter. I stamped it onto Midnight card stock and versamark ink and used some white embossing powder to really make it pop. 

One last one from me for today. While I had my white embossing powder out and distress inks, I created this card with the String of Lights stamp set. Something about this card gives me  a little country Christmas feeling. 

I started with a bit of color smooshing in the background. I let the panel dry and then stamped the images and embossed them in white embossing powder. You can see that detail here. 

The sentiment is from the same set, String of Lights and I inked it up with some Midnight ink. I added a couple strips of festive paper and then tied it up in a twine bow. 

Thanks again for stopping by today. You will definitely see more of these sets soon. I have a cute reindeer card already in the hopper!
