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!
Crystal here with a couple super fun cards to share today using the fabulous Be a Unicorn of the Sea stamp set by Picket Fence. Oh my goodness… this is an adorable set!!
I paired this fabulous set with the beautiful Watercolor Wishes paper by Lawn Fawn. I stamped the schools of fish and bubbles directly on the Watercolor Wishes paper using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and Powder Blue ink by Gina K. Designs. I adhered that to another layer from the paper pad and then I set it aside.
I stamped several of the narwhals and started coloring… I wanted my narwhals to have some pink-purple so I started by coloring them with the V000 Copic marker. I then added some grays to the narwhals using C00, C2, and C3.
I fussy cut the narwhals and adhered them to my panels… popping up one of the narwhals for dimension. Once I had my panels done, I set them on the white card base so I could decide where to put the sentiment. Using my stamp platform I positioned the sentiment just so and was able to remove the panel and then stamp without worrying about getting extra ink on my panel. For my first card, I stamped the sentiment with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and then just barely inked up the bottom portion of the sentiment with the Powder Blue ink and stamped it again.
I love the effect it gives to the sentiment!
For my second card, I did all the same steps except I turned my card base and made my panel slightly larger to fit the card. For the sentiment on this one, I just used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.
To finish off both of my cards I added drops of the gorgeous Nuvo Dream Drops Fairy Wings. Oh my goodness the color of these drops is seriously dreamy! Love them!!

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my final Scrapping For Less project for May 2019. I had so much fun making this, other than the video that I tried, and it stopped working half through.
How I made this fun Magic Color Slider Card… without the die…
Take an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet cardstock, score at 5.5″ on the short and 4.25″ on the long.
2. Cut away the top left panel as this will be used later for your slider.
3. If making your card portrait as I did, Cut .25″ off along the outside of the right panels.
4. With the remaining lower left panel score in .25″ and cut the top and bottom corners at an angle.
5. Decide if you want a Circle, Square, Rectangle or whatever hole for your window, I went with Rectangle using my stitched rectangle dies. I folded my panels so that the bottom left which is what would be the top panel would be cut with the die and ran it through my die cutter.
6. For me at this point I cut in .25 from each side on the top right so that it would say down easily.
7. I then folded the upper right down over the upper left, and folded the lower left over to cover the same, to put the panel that was upper right in between the two.
8. Using score tape on the little flap I closed it up by tucking it into the back panel. making a big pocket with a panel in the middle.
9. Cut a piece of acetate to be 5.25″ x 3.75″ and using a piece of score tape attach to the center top of the panel we had cut away in step 2 which I cut to the same measurements.
10. Stamp the image on the acetate using Staz-On ink in the same place it will be on the inner panel. For I stamped on the acetate, then positioned the piece I had already cut and colored in the same spot so they lined up.
11. Using pattern paper out of the “Believe” paper pack I used my stitched rectangle dies to make frames for the front of my card and panels for the slider part as well.
12. Using a tab die from a Lawn Fawn set I made a pull tab and attached with score tape to the top of the slider panel and attached some bakers twine to that for a pull string.
13. Putting the card together at this point was easy, I slid the panel with the pattern paper and colored image behind the white panel and the acetate panel in front. It is all hidden by the frames on the front of the card. After some stamp surgery I stamped the sentiment on the cloud and attached it to the top of the frame to complete my card.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a project I had a lot of fun creating.
This Picket Fence stamp set came in perfect timing. I had a coworker who has been down a bit lately, not like herself. While at work the day after this stamp set arrived I started thinking about what I could do, and I came up with this card. The next day it was on her desk when she arrived and now it hangs on her corkboard.
To make this cute card, I first stamped the Picket Fence Sympathetic Unicorn and Cloud out with Gina K Designs Black Amalgam Ink. I knew I would be using Alcohol Markers and this is a safe ink to use. I alternated colors with my markers to color the mane in a rainbow scheme.
The sentiment is stamped inside the card using the same Amalgam ink.
The background pattern paper sheet is from Bo Bunny “Believe” collection.
I stamped the sentiment on a sheet of vellum using the Amalgam ink and heat embossed using Nuvo Jet Black embossing powder. Using strategically placed liquid Multi-Medium Matte under the sentiment, cloud and unicorn
I was able to adhere the Vellum without it being seen. I finished the card off with some “Love Potion” Nuvo Dream Drops.

Happy Friday Everyone!! Today I made a Birthday Card featuring “Kylee Boo” from Picket Fence Studios. She is super sweet blowing her bubbles. This stamp set has many sentiments to choose from but I chose “Happy Birthday” since it is a month of celebrations here at Scrapping for Less!
I stamped out the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers. I used some “White Blizzard” Glitter Nuvo drops in the bubble images for a little sparkle and dimension. On the inside of the card, I masked off Kylee and used just the bubbles for decoration!
Thank you all for stopping by today!
I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
