Hi Everyone! Luci here with a few cards using the Picket Fence Studios “String of Lights” stamp set.
I love how simple yet lovely these cards were!
To start I picked out A2 size card bases from my stash, cut down white cardstock panels to 4 X 5 1/4 inches. Then I stamped the images and sentiment together using my Mini Misti and Brutus Monroe embossing ink. I picked red, silver, gold, and green embossing powders and heat embossed them. I adhered the card panels to the card bases. Then I simply added some embellishments for one I used sequins from an old SFL FOTM card kit and the rest I used Nuvo Crystal Nuvo Drops, the colors I used were Autumn Red and Silver Lining. Easy Peasy right!
This is a 5 1/2 inch square card. I used a die to cut for squares to make the window from a piece of pattern paper from the Santa’s Workshop paper pad cut to 5 1/2 inches, then I made a template of curtains, traced it onto a different piece of pattern paper and cut it out. I adhered the curtains to the window frame.
I then used a solid blue piece from the paper to use as the background. I stamped all of the images for both cards from the “Merry and Bright” stamp set, colored them with alcohol markers, and cut them out with my Scan N Cut.
Next, I adhered the images to the blue panel and checked on placement every now and then by holding the window frame piece over it. Once I had everything in place I adhered the back panel to the card base and then adhered the front panel to that.
To finish it off I stamped the sentiment onto a white strip of paper and fishtailed the ends, then colored it in, popped it up with some fun foam and adhered it to the center of the card.
My second card is also a 5 1/2 inch square but I made a little differently, I used an SVG file and card out the card base and curtain, then I adhered a piece of acetate to the window frame, I ran the curtain through my Big Kick using the Carta Bella embossing folder “Ogee” to give it some dimension, and then adhered it to the window panel.
I glued a panel that I made by using a technique with Copic markers and rubbing alcohol, glued all the images down and then decided I didn’t like it. So I cut the front panel off and the back of the card with the panel down to about 5 1/4 inches and adhered both to the front of a 5 1/2 inch square card base.
Then I decided I didn’t like the white window frame so I colored it with Copic markers. To finish it off I stamped the sentiment onto a white strip of paper and fishtailed the ends, then colored it in, popped it up with some fun foam and adhered it to the center of the card.
I heat embossed with clear Embossing Powder the floral swag after stamping it with Clear Embossing Ink. I trimmed down the panels to 4 in. X 51/4 in. and used a pink card base and a yellow card base from my stash.
I used Distress Oxides and blended them over the card panels. Then sprayed them with some water and blotted them off.
This is an A2 or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch card. I used the Knit Picky Fall Paper Pad, found a piece I liked and cut it down to 4 X 5 1/4 inches for the front panel. I cut an oval out of the center with a die to create a frame.
I used Sticko “Autumn Pumpkin” and SandyLion “Tree With Leaves” stickers to create a scene. I popped up the images with foam tape to finish off the card.

Both of these are A2 size cards or 4 1/4 in. X 5 1/2 in. and both card bases are from my stash.
For the first card, I used the “Wild Animals Paper Pad” and used the sheet as a panel that was cut to 4 in. X 5 1/4 in. I colored the chameleon and flower with Studio 71 alcohol markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out. I cut out a circle with a stitched circle die and then put it on overlapping the panel and cut off the end. I used the same paper as the circle to heat emboss the sentiment, and I popped up both the chameleon and sentiment. On the inside of the card, I added another sentiment from the stamp set that said: “Don’t ever change”. I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on the chameleon image.
For the next card, I blended Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, and Peeled Paint, over the Palm Leaf stencil and a piece of the pattern paper from the “Wild Animals” paper pad. I love how it turned out! I cut it down to 4 in. X 5 1/4 in. I stamped the sentiments from the stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Popped on the Doodle Pop Koala and used a few sequins from a previous FOTM kit.
Both of these are A2 size cards or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. I blended Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet and for the white card, I used Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans for the body. After I blended the oxides over the stencil on the white card I cut out a mask so I could add the blues to the body. I used a couple different gel pen colors for the beak area but really didn’t like how that turned out, I finally went over it in black gel pen. I added a sentiment to a white strip that was the same width as the card. and I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on every feather and the body. For the black card after I blended the oxide inks over the stencil I used clear shimmer spray over the entire card and the added a fishtailed banner the same width as the card with a sentiment.
Not all of our cards need to take hours, sometimes you just need a quick card to say Hey! This card is a standard A2 size card or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch. I cut out a piece of the galaxy paper to 4 X 5 1/4 for the front panel, I used a circle die to cut out a piece of scrap patterned scrap paper, I did end up taking another scrap piece of cardstock die-cut it with the same circle just to give it some more stability. Then I added the lounge chair sticker to the die cut circle and a sentiment sticker that says “On Lake Time”. On the inside I used the sentiment stamp “is my favorite place to be from Critter Campout! And that’s it, easy peasy!
Can you guess what technique I used for part of this card? If you do you will have figured out something in the kit!
If not, don’t worry I will have the video up along with the blog hop on Saturday July 27th at 12:00am PST!
