Product Spotlight: Picket Fence Studios Paper Pouncers

Hello again, crafty friends. Today’s post is all about the new Paper Pouncers from Picket Fence Studios. I’m really loving them and wanted to give you an introduction to them.

I created a video all about these pouncers. You can watch it HERE or click on the video below…

 So there is a bright rainbow pack is a pack of 9. There is also a Neutrals pack of paper pounces available in black, brown, and gray. The cap twists off to reveal the paper pouncer. They are very lightweight and the foam is very soft.

Before I share more information, let’s start creating. I die cut the largest feather from the Fanciful Feathers dies from white cardstock several times. I want to create an ombre look on each one feather, so I will be blending with three colors of ink in each color family. I removed the pouncer from the case and dabbed up and down on to the die cut. I started with the lightest color, then applied the medium shade towards the bottom and middle of the die, and finally the darkest shade along the bottom. I repeated this process with each of the colors.

So this is what the paper pouncers are meant for. They are a tool for direct ink application on intricate die cuts and stencils. Are these intended to replace blending brushes? No. This is a high-quality sponge and ink applicator, not a blending tool.They are a quick and easy way to apply ink, including embossing ink. You pounce the ink directly onto your surface, rather than blend. This is a high-quality sponge will not tear or snag delicate die cuts or stencils. I really like how light weight they are and would be ideal for someone with hand issues like arthritis. I also like they come in a case to keep the ink color contained. I find them very easy to use and they give great coverage.
To clean them, you can pounce them on a scratch piece of paper or wipe them on a dry cloth. I wouldn’t recommend submerging them in water as the sponge may expand.
Also, I did all of my pouncing on a piece of white cardstock. I cut it with a basic rectangle die and now I have a fun background panel or a piece that I can die cut from. I chose to die cut from it and add quick coloring to some more feather dies.

I created the background on this slimline card by applying gray ink through the new Flower Burst stencil, adhered the ombre feathers down, and finished it off with the Slimline Happy Birthday Word Die.
So there you have it…a look at the new Paper Pounces from Picket Fence Studios. Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Have a great day and happy crafting!
