Picket Fence Studios April Release! Rainbow Friendship Wreath cards.

Hi guys!

Today is the 14th, which means the April release from Picket Fence Studios is live! Yay! I’ve got a video up on my YouTube channel showing off the stamps and stencils, as well as some of the dies.

For the cards I am going to show you today, I have used the BFF My Tribe stamp. One on Copic Friendly paper and one on Bristol Vellum paper. Both are stamped up with the Black Hybrid ink, and the Bristol one was stamped again with the Embossing Pad from WOW! And heat embossed with clear embossing powder. In between stamping, I cleaned off the black ink with the Stamp Scrubber. Of course I used the Mini MISTI for the stamping.

I used Zig Clean Color markers on the Bristol Vellum panel. I did the sleeves in a rainbow colour, without adding any water to keep the colours vibrant.

On the second panel I used Copics and tried keeping the colours and shading as close to the Zig Coloring as possible. The hands are done in different shades of skin colours. All the nails got my usual signature nail polish colour of hot pink. The current state of my nails is atrocious though. Thanks Covid-19.

Once all the colouring was done, I trimmed down the panels a little so they’d measure 5.25”x4”. Both of these got the sentiment ‘Oh please, we knew you could do it’ from the I Freaking Love You stamp set. I used the Mini MISTI to make sure they stamped properly. The ink is again the Black Hybrid ink.

To finish off the cards I adhered the panels to white card bases. I considered adding some sequins as I’m back on my sequins craze, however I managed to restrain myself. They are lovely enough as they are and sometimes less is more. This BFF My Tribe stamp has been added to my ‘Love it’ list!

With that, I’m done for today. I have used compensated affiliate links in this post, as usual. They do not cost you anything at all, but if you use them I will get a small commission from the company directly at no extra cost to you whatsoever. When you use these, it helps strengthen my collaboration with the companies and that’s the most important part to me, so thank you in advance for the support and encouragement. I really appreciate it!

Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
