Picket Fence April Release

It’s a new release over at Picket Fence Studios and I am so excited to be guest designing this month using some of the fabulous crafty items from this release.

I’m sharing two cards today using the graceful Koi stamp set with matching die and some of the fun new embellishment/shakers from the release.


Using wild honey oxide ink and the new Slimline Randomness Hexagon Stencil on a trimmed down sheet of white card stock, ink up and add to a white slimline card base.

Create a shaker frame using acetate and fill with the new Sequin Mix Plus Honey Bears and attach on top.

Stamp sentiment in black versa fine onyx black ink, heat emboss in clear and add dimensional tape and attach to shaker frame.

Stamp and die cut graceful Koi and glue in place.


Start with a white card stock panel trimmed down to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stencil the new Slimline Hexagon Randomness Stencil with patina oxide ink. Stamp the bubbles from the Graceful Koi fish in a soft turquoise on the panel as well.

Stamp and die cut Graceful Koi fish in orange and turquoise and glue on panel. Trim off fish that over hang the panel. Using dimensional tape add another layer of fish and trim off any parts that overhang.

Add sentiment stamped in black and heat embossed in clear on white cardstock and attach to center of card with dimensional tape.

Finish with a few clear gems from the new Wishes embellishments.

Crafty Hugs,
