Welcome to the September Picket Fence Studios release. This is a release full of Christmas stamps, dies and more!!! Also we have 3 new foiling stamps!!!! I have used all 3 of them on my cards below and they come with coordinating dies 
For my First card i used the Christmas foliage bulb foiling stamp/ die along with the On a Christmas Walk stamp set and the coordinating dies. This is an adorable stamp set and the images are just precious. I fell in love with these two bears the second I saw this set!!!! 



Next up is the CHristmas Poinsettia Star stamp! It's a huge POINSETTIA and it's lovely. I stamped it with watermark ink and embossed in gold sparkle then watercolored with Daniel Smith Watercolors. I used the Falala stamp and foiling die for the sentiment and some gold foil.



Last but not the least is the Merry Christmas foiled impressions die. I love the size of this sentiment! I created a background using bunch of strips of card stock and then foiled the Merry Christmas. Added some gold confetti sequins and adhered to white card base. Simple but fun!

For my card today I used the set No Matter the Weather. I inked my stamps using waterbased markers, spritzed with water and stamped on watercolor paper to get watercolor look. for the background (sky and ground) I scribbled some watercolor marker onto palette and picked up with my waterbrush and carefully colored around the images. If you get some bleeds, that's ok, it just adds more to that watercolor look.
Once the panel was dry I stamped the sentiment in Raven black few times and embossed in clear embossing powder. 
Trimmed to 3 3/4" x 5" and adhered to 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Sweater Weather patterned paper then to cream note card (to match the off white watercolor paper).
