Picket Fences Birthday Celebration + Giveaway...

I am so excited to be celebrating with Picket Fences today for their first birthday party!  What makes this day even better is because it's my birthday too!!  Happy birthday to us!  :)

Picket Fences has some amazing stamps, dies and stencils over in their shop and today I am sharing a few projects made using a few of my favorites.  

First up, the Magical Unicorn....

Picket Fences

To create this card, I used my tomboy markers to add color to her horn and then stamped the rest in black ink.  I added the white panel to a teal panel that I stamped with the sentiment, I believe in you.  I added some stars and shimmer....well...because unicorns need some sparkle!


This next stamp is called Let's Shaker Our Tail Feathers....

Picket Fences

I stamped this gorgeous image in Versamark and then heat embossed the large panel.  I used those Life Changing Brushes to add in color to the feathers.  I cut the panel down at an angle, added another white layer and then heat embossed the sentiment onto another layer of vellum.


This last card uses the most fun stamp set called Vortex of Fish....

Picket Fences

I heat embossed the sentiment and used the brushes again to add in the color.  Those brushes are amazing and lay down the color like no other tool.  I stamped the sentiment and added in some tiny hearts for a fun pop of color.
