You Make Me Smile by Jen Timko | Rustic Florals by Picket Fence Studios, Daniel Smith Watercolors, Wonky Stitched Circle Dies by Gina Marie DesignsI thoughts I’d share a sweet little Monday card with you.  I created this just for fun using the new Rustic Floral set from Picket Fence Studios.  I love this darling little image and the sentiments in the set are perfect for note cards for many occasions.  I stamped this in the new Black Hybrid Ink from Picket Fence and wow!  Hybrid it is!  I tested it with Copics and this was my watercolor test.  PERFECT!  I love a one stop black ink!  It doesn’t budge or smear with either.  Not sure how that is possible but some things just don’t require an explanation.  I’ll accept that it is crafting magic!

I love it so much that I’m going to gift it and the Crafty Friends stamp set to one lucky person.  I’m going to make this an Instagram drawing so hop over and follow me there and enter for your chance to win.  You can find the details HERE.

After coloring the image and the background of this with Daniel Smith watercolors (just some quick and easy coloring) I cut it out using the Wonky Circle Dies by Gina Marie Designs.  The stitched background is made with the same set…it cuts the stitches separately from the circle cutting die.  So clever!

That’s it for today. I hope you hop over and find me on Instagram to enter.  Back on Wednesday with an awesome announcement from Freshly Made Sketches!  You will not want to miss it!  Until then, have a happy start to your week.


 

 

Picket Fence Studios November Release – Jill Girl

Picket Fence Studios November Release – Jill Girl published on 2 Comments on Picket Fence Studios November Release – Jill Girl

I was having so much designing with the new stamps from Picket Fence Studios that I wanted to share another card with you right away.  If you were anywhere near the design team’s posts yesterday, I’m sure you have already seen and fallen in love with this wonderful Jill Girl stamp.  I’ll admit that she intimidated me a bit but I decided just to jump in and see what happened.  I started with her hair to see how that would go.  All in all, I kind of liked it so I continued on and eventually found that I liked the coloring enough to turn it into a card.

A Call Away by Jen Timko | Jill Girl Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Rustic Floral Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Copic ColoringSometimes it is nice just to color and not be sure that it will “be” something.  If you need an excuse, the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge is currently running and there are tons of people coloring just for fun.  It is awesome!!  But Jill wanted to become a card so I added her onto a background that is really a Christmas print pack (SU).  The striped are neutral enough to be anything though.  Love prints like that.  The sentiment is from another of the new sets called Rustic Floral and it seemed right for her (I also found that another DT member, Jana Millen, used the same one….isn’t it funny when that happens in the big craft world???  I kind of like to imagine it was like we were crafting together instead of all being miles apart.)

A Call Away by Jen Timko | Jill Girl Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Rustic Floral Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios, Copic ColoringI think this image is going to be wildly popular (based on the reaction by the DT alone).  Something about her is really special!  I am going to be on the Picket Fence Studios blog tomorrow morning with a card I think you will love.  More coloring and a new to me technique that I have been wanting to try for a while.  So glad you stopped in today.  See you tomorrow!
