Picket Fence Brand of the Month Inspiration

Hello friends, it’s Nina-Marie Trapani here with you today and I’m bringing you a bit of colorful inspiration using a new (as well as super-cute!) Picket Fence Studios stamp set – Artist Dear!

I love the quirky style of this stamp set, as well as the fact that the illustration is the type that can be customized to look like the girlfriends or family in your life! With just a few color adjustments, I was able to create a Caucasian and African American girl extremely easily. Skin and hair Copic colors used are below for reference.

  • Caucasian skin: E40, E42, E43, with R00 and R21 for the cheeks
  • Caucasian hair: E25, E27, E29
  • African American skin: E43, E44, E47, with R00 and R21 for the cheeks
  • African American hair: C4, C6, C8

I’ve been trying really hard to use up my scraps of late (I have SO many and the pile seems to only grow!). So I cut up some pieces of colored cardstock to coordinate with the girls and adhered those along the bottom of the white card panel.

Above the cardstock stripes, I added some glittery polka dots with a Heffy Doodle stencil, Transparent Matte Texture Paste, Simon’s Unicorn Dust glitter and Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter. For sentiments, I used Simon’s Reverse Happy sentiment strip set.

Want to see how these colorful cards were created? Watch the video below for all the details!
