Happy Mail Has Arrived, Y’all!

Hi and welcome back to another day of revelling in the January release from Picket Fence Studios!

Today’s cards are made with the same products, only different colours and the final layout is slightly different. If you are familiar with my work, you know this is something I like doing. I’ve also made a video for my YouTube channel if you’d rather watch that, over reading a blog post.

To start with, I stamped up the Lots Of Mail stamp over a 4.25″x5.5″ panel of Neenah. I used the MISTI to begin with but for some reason, that was more troublesome than it was worth and I couldn’t even get the whole panel covered. The puzzling part of my brain was not connected and I had to use an acrylic stamping block to finish stamping, which was a bit nerve wracking! It worked out pretty good though so the second panel I did using the acrylic block.

As I wanted to do Copic colouring I used the Hybrid Black ink and then used my heat tool on the panels to set it properly.

One is done in blue/turquoise and one is done in red/pinks. Both are done in ombré. Or well, the blue one started out as ombré but then it’s an ombré up-side-down to finish it off as I ran out of blues, lol!

For a big splashy sentiment, I grabbed the Y’All word die, it has such a fab font! The Y’all word diecut shadow part has been cut out of black card stock, and then the actual words three times out of white card stock. These have all been layered up using the glue tube from Lawn Fawn.

Of course I needed a fun snappy sentiment to finish off the cards, and I heat embossed ‘happy mail has arrived’ in Opaque Bright White embossing powder on black card stock. This is from Peach And Piper Checking The Post.

These I trimmed down to slim strips and added to the card bases, then the Y’all were added on top, again using the glue tube.

With that the cards were done! I hope you have enjoyed this post and the cards. If you get a chance, hop on over to my YouTube and check out the video too. This design is one of the Make And Takes at Creativation so if you can’t be there in person, you can at least sort of get the experience by making this card.
