I created a card for both today’s Picket Fence Studios blog and for a product review for Splitcoaststampers on a new ink from Clearsnap.  The inks are called Colorbox Dyestress Inks and they are really beautiful!  I had such fun blending these colors together and creating a cool background using a new to me technique that is perfect for distress inks.

Smile by Jen Timko | Rose Bouquet Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Colorbox Dyestress Inks, Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence Studios, Flower Burst Trio Die by Gina Marie DesignsI’m going to send you to the Picket Fence Studios blog for the how-to but suffice it to say that you NEED these Life Changing Blender Brushes.  I put off some backgrounds that required blending because I was forever getting streaks or edges or something that seemed to ruin what I was working on.  Not with these brushes!

 

The other product I want to share directly here are the dies I used for this card.  They come from Gina Marie Designs and they are wonderful.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and the Flower Burst Trio.  I love this site (and I have no affiliate there….simply loving her dies and her pricing!).

Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you like this card and this technique.  See you soon!

I’m thrilled to be sharing one more card as the Guest Designer for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers today.  I’m back using Picket Fence Studios products and I hope you enjoy this.

Cool Beans by Jen Timko | BFF Owl Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Ways to Say Congrats Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence StudiosI’m pretty much in love with the sweet owls and this BFF Owl is super fun to color. I went a little out of the box on her palette and used the new Color Box Dyestress Inks by Clearsnap. They have some beautiful shades and they are great for easy watercoloring and blending. I stamped the owl in Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Once she was colored I used the new Circle Stencil from Picket Fence Studios and the Life Changing Blender Brushes to create her spotlight.

Cool Beans by Jen Timko | BFF Owl Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Ways to Say Congrats Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence StudiosYou can see that there are seriously no lines from the blending. And the brushes come in big and little sizes so you can use them for all your stencils. The really are life changing when it comes to simplifying your blending. For the sentiment, I used another set from Picket Fence Studios (soon to arrive in the store) called Ways to Say Congrats. This one is perfect for all us coffee fans, don’t you think?

I had so much fun joining in on the Coffee Loving fun this month that I’ll be a part of  their hop celebrating National Coffee Day!!!  A whole day to celebrate coffee…I’m all in!!  And I’m lucky enough to be one of the hop participants with a sponsored prize.  You won’t want to miss it!!  Come back tomorrow for all the fun.  Until then, thanks for stopping in today.
