Picket Fence Studios

Fun Halloween Spirit

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches (which I rotated) as well as the current Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is ‘spooky’.

I fell for this little ghost from Picket Fence Studios when it was released last year, but I couldn’t find it in an UK stores. When I saw it in the Dies to Die For shop a few weeks ago, I had to snap it up, even though I try to ration myself when it comes to buying Halloween supplies!

I created a fun blended background using distress oxide inks and then embossed a sentiment from My Favorite Things. I coloured and fussy cut the ghost and then added a generous layer of Pixie Dust over him! Look at that shimmer!

Thank for stopping by!


Wicked together

Hi there!

Once again i’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using just one corner and we have a fabulous seasonal colour palette as our optional twist. Our sponsor is Stamplorations.

I kept it pretty simple again. I stamped and embossed an image from the Picket Fence Studios ‘Wicked Together’ set and then blended some Carved Pumpkin distress ink into the centre of the pumpkin. I masked off the centre of the pumpkin and blended Twisted Citron to create a vibrant background.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by the lovely Sandie – who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!


Beware of the Cat!

Happy Halloween friends!

You know, I have far too many Halloween supplies…. dies, stamps, embellishments…. and they are so much fun to play with! So, I banned myself from buying new Halloween supplies this year. Well, that came to an abrupt end when I saw Picket Fence Studio’s ‘Wicked Together’ set. Such fun images and sentiments… I HAD to have it!

For this CAS one layer card, I used my favourite two stamps from the set. I masked off a circle and blended some bright distress inks. I then fiddled with the sentiment FOR AGES until I got a positioning that I was vaguely happy with! Thank goodness for my MISTI, here!

Finally I stamped the fun cat in the circle and while I was tempted to add some glitter or bling, I decided that less could be more this time!

I’m entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge – take flight.

Have a great day all!
