Hero Arts My Monthly Hero | June 2019 Card Kit | Part Two

For the second set of four cards I made using the My Monthly Hero for June 2019, I focused on ink blending in most of the cards.
This time, I brought in the stencil for one of the cards and used the add-on products as well.

For the fifth card, I used the Leaves and Vines Fancy Die add-on to create a perfect backdrop against the green
cardstock for the focal image of the elephant to stand out on.

For the next card, I inked up the background first using Twisted Citron. Then I overlayed the stencil from the main kit and
inked the background with several shades of Distress Oxide inks. After all that inking, I felt that the only thing this
card needed was the sentiment.

For the seventh card, I used the little flamingo image set against a dry embossed background with
the Leaves and Vines Fancy die. For some reason, this card totally gave me a 50’s vibe.
Maybe because of the frame, I’m not sure!

For the last card, I made using the Hero Arts June 2019 kit, I used the Jungle Frames Fancy die to die cut a piece of
Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blend it with several shades of green Distress Oxides inks. I then created a
little scene with several images and a sentiment.

Hero Arts My Monthly Hero | June 2019 Card Kit | Part One | 4 Cards

Hello everyone,

I’m so excited to share the four cards I made using the Hero Arts June 2019 Card Kit. It’s been a little while since I got the Hero Arts Card Kit but when I saw this theme, I had to get it and make some cards. This is part one with four cards that I made, all featuring water-colored backgrounds.

Hero Arts June 2019 Card 4

For the first card, I created a night-time sky background using a rich purple and black watercolor ink. This was the perfect backdrop for the Elephant from the main kit with his friend the Monkey.

Hero Arts June 2019 Card Kit

For the second card, I created a day-time sky background, this time using only one shade of blue. I wanted to create an ombre wash of color with this card, so I worked on creating a gradient of the same shade of blue.

Hero Arts June 2019 Card Kit

For this card, I wanted to beautiful jungle sunset with rich yellow, orange and reds. I think that the Cheetah was a perfect addition to this background with a few jungle vines for a little interest.

Hero Arts June 2019 Card Kit

And finally, for the last card, I did a little ink smooshing to create a very bright background. Again, using the Gansai Tambi Watercolors, I added several shades of blue to a scrap piece of acetate and smooshed it onto a piece of watercolor cardstock. For the border, I used the add-on Jungle Frame Fancy Die. After I die cut it, I added several shades of green to color in the border.

Scrapping For Less: FOTM March 2019 Card Kit | Let’s Celebrate | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: March Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I really enjoyed the versatility of this kit and the contents it provided to make four very different celebratory cards.

Scrapping For Less: Flavor of the Month March Card Kit

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 3

For my first card, I used the ice cream image by Scrapping For Less. I used my Copic markers to color the image and my Scan N Cut Machine to cut the image out leaving a small white border.

Scrapping For Less March 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Let’s Celebrate. Collection one: Ice Cream Stamp and Ice Cream Celebrations patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 2

For the second card, I decided to make a shaker card. Now shaker cards are not my strong suit but I think I managed to make a decent shaker using the papers and ephemera by Scrapping For Less.

Scrapping For Less March 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Let’s Celebrate. Collection two: Happy Birthday Ephemera and Happy Birthday patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 4

This was a very special card to make for it has an intended recipient. I loosely followed sketch number 4 for this card and created half ovals instead of diamond-shaped elements. I colored the baby images by Your Next Stamp with Copic markers and cut them out using my Scan N Cut machine.

Scrapping For Less March 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Let’s Celebrate. Collection three: Baby Stamp and Sweet Baby Paper by Your Next Stamp.

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 2

And finally, for the last card, I used the gold speckled acetate on top of the cut apart provided in my collection to create an elegant and sweet card.

Scrapping For Less March 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Let’s Celebrate. Collection four: Everyday Musings Journaling Cards and patterned paper by Pink Fresh Studios.

Scrapping For Less: FOTM February 2019 Card Kit | Whip it Up | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: February Flavor of the Month Card Kit. This kit was all about baking sweets and love.

Scrapping For Less February 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Whip it Up. Collection four: Cookie Mouse stamp by Scrapping For Less and Cookies and Milk patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For my first card, I used the adorable Baking Marci stamp from La La Land Crafts as the main focal point image. After stamping her on Neenah 80lb. with Memento Tuxedo ink, I used my Copic markers to color up the image and a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel.

Scrapping For Less February 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Whip it Up. Collection one: Baking Marci stamp by La La Land Crafts and Cupcake Cuties patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Color combinations:

Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Hair: E13, E15, E08, E09, E18
Lips: R20, R22
Dress: BG49, BG57, BG53, BG10
Apron: RV32, RV91, RV93
Shoes: E30, E31, E33, E35
Bowl: C7, C5, C3, C1

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 2

For the second card, I followed sketch two and used Baking Luka stamp from La La Land Crafts. After coloring the image with my Copic markers, I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die. I decided to give the Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence a try and was so amazingly impressed at the way they add ink onto cardstock. This cardstock is not the most ideal paper for ink blending but the brush blended the ink so smoothly, it literally went on like butter.

Color combinations:

Apron: R02, R05, R08
Tray: C7, C5, C3
Cookies: E31, E33

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 3

For this card, I wanted to create a single layer stamped image of three pies with the stamp in this collection. I made a quick mask using post-it full adhesive notes and added it over the stamped pie in the foreground to create the illusion of 3-dimensional pies.

Scrapping For Less February 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Whip it Up. Collection three: Cutie Pie stamp by Lawn Fawn and Let’s Bake a Pie patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Color combination:

Pies: E35, E34, E33, E31
Tin: C5, C3, C1

 

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 4

And finally, for the last card I pulled out my Faber-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils to color up the cute mouse from the stamp set by Scrapping For Less.

Scrapping For Less: FOTM December 2018 Card Kit | Arctic Animals | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: December 2018 Flavor of the Month Card Kit called Animals in the Arctic. This has to be my most favorite kit thus far. It features all of my most favorite animals in the Arctic and as a bonus, the color of the kit is predominantly purple in color. Which is definitely my favorite! And now onto the cards.

Each card is created with the contents of one of the collections and follows the suggested sketch provided on the Scrapping For Less website here.

Sadly, the kit is sold out for the banana split level but there seems to be an option for the double dip kit or the Ala Carte products.

Scrapping For Less December 2018 FOTM Card Animals in the Arctic featuring from collection one: Bear Hugs by Sunny Studios and Winter Skies by Scrapping For Less patterned paper.
Scrapping For Less December 2018 FOTM Card Animals in the Arctic featuring from collection two: Penguin with a mug by Stamping Bella and Chill by Scrapping For Less patterned paper.
Scrapping For Less December 2018 FOTM Card Animals in the Arctic featuring from collection three: Winter Pals by Pink and Main and Frosty by Pink and Main patterned paper.
Scrapping For Less December 2018 FOTM Card Animals in the Arctic featuring from collection four: Arctic Animals by LDRS and Arctic Snowfall by LDRS patterned paper.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch # 4

For my first card, I used the super adorable polar bear (happens to be my most favorite Arctic animal) and followed sketch number four. I combined the collection one stamp with the Christmas Tree stencil to create a nighttime winter inspired scene.

I colored the bear using Copic markers, white heat embossed the sentiment and added the beautiful patterned paper to complete this card.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch # 2

For the second card, I followed sketch two and decided to try my hand at monochromatic coloring of the super sweet penguin by Stamping Bella.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch #3

For this and the last card of the kit, I created one-layer mini scenes, which happens to be one of my most favorite techniques in creating cards. The third card features two of the most adorable Arctic animals floating on an iceberg. I used my Copic markers to  color the entire scene including the water and the sky. As a final touch I added snow with a white gel pen because it would snow in the Arctic!

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch #1

And finally for the last card for this kit, I stamped the sweet momma and baby fox from the Arctic Animals stamp by LDRS on Grapesicle  cardstock and used my Fabre-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencil that I got from my beautiful sister for Christmas. This is my favorite card I made from this kit!

Scrapping For Less | FOTM May 2018 Card Kit 4 Cards

Hey everyone,

Today I’m sharing several cards I made using the Scrapping for Less FOTM May 2018 Card Kit called In the Country. Whew! Say that three times fast!

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side

I’m a huge fan of cards kits because I think you get the most bang for your buck and it’s an opportunity to build your stash of goodies.

I’m following the suggested sketch guidelines available at the Scrapping For Less website to create these 4 cards using the 4 collections from the kit.

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side featuring Country Kitchen by Carta Bella papers and ephemera.

For card one, I’m using collection #1 and following sketch #1 to create this very country vintage card. I am only using the patterned papers and the ephemera from the collection to create this card.

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side featuring Down on the Farm by Doodlebug papers and ephemera.

I love to create scenes on my cards and the stickers in the kit were an excellent opportunity to do just that. It’s a mini farm inspired scene following sketch # 2 and using the papers from collection # 2.

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side featuring Scrapping For Less Piggy Picnic stamp set and Tiny Checks by MFT paper pad.

For this card, I used the piggy picnic stamp set from collection # 3 to stamp and Copic color the images to create those adorable piggy’s having a picnic.

Copic color combinations:

Piggy’s: R32, R30, W7 and W5
Basket: E27, E23, YG13, YG11, Y15, R27
Sun: Y19 and Y15

I used the tiny checks patterned papers from collection #3 and followed sketch # 4 to complete this piggy picnic card.

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side featuring Barnyard by Avery Elle Stamp set and Farm House by American Crafts paper pad.

For my last card, I used collection # 4 and followed sketch # 3 very loosely. I used some dies from my stash to die cut the windows in the patterned paper and add those adorable little chicks in.

Copic color combinations:

Chicks: Y17, Y15, Y11, YR18, YR14, C1 and 0
Grassy hill: G99 and G94
butterfly: R85 and R83

I have created a process video of each card I created and I will have links to all the products I used at the bottom of this post.

On a side note, I am NOT sponsored for this post/video, I have been a subscribing member for almost a year and clearly love the kit enough to share.

Well that’s all for this project, I hope you found it inspiring and as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

P.S. I edit all my projects using Pic Monkey, which allows me to crop my images, add effects, adjust exposures, sharpen colors, minor touch up and add my watermark. Click here for more information

Scrapping For Less | March FOTM Card Kit Featuring 4 cards 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I created using the March Flavor of the Month Card Kit by Scrapping for Less following the March Sketch Sheet provided by Scrapping for Less.

Scrapping for Less March FOTM Card Kit

The first card features the stamp and papers from collection # 4 and I am using sketch #1 for the layout. To start, I stamped the adorable Ice Cream Chicks by Stamping Bella onto a piece of Copic friendly cardstock. I learned how to color on Neenah Solar White 80 lb. and that is the paper I always use for Copic coloring.

Copic color combination
Chicks: Y17, Y15, Y13
Beaks and feet: YR04
Ice Cream: R85, R83, R81
E27, E25, E23
W1, W00, 0
Ice Cream Cone: E43, E42, E40
Shading: W03, W01, W00
YG13, YG11, YG01

All of the papers for this card are from the Happy Hooray Collection by Pebbles except for the green panel which is from My Favorite Things.

For the second card, I am using the stamp and papers from collection #1 and sketch #2. I stamped the ice cream from Lawn Fawn Treat Yourself Stamp onto a piece of Copic friendly cardstock and colored my image using Copic Markers. I did a little masking so that my spoon is inside the ice cream container.

Copic color combinations:
Ice Cream container: YR23, YR21, YR20
Ice Cream: YG6, YG5, YG01
Spoon: C9, C5

Of all the sketches for this card kit, this one gave me the most trouble. I’ve never utilized tags on a card before and I was second guessing myself until almost the end when it started coming together. And although this is not a typical card for my style or the color combinations but I really love the end result.

For the third card, I am using the Ice Cream Buttons by Buttons Galore from collection #2. First, I cut the tabs off with my wire snips so that I could adhere the buttons flat with adhesive. Then, following sketch #3, I added the paper layers with liquid glue or with fun foam for some dimension.

This card was definitely my most favorite card design and I think the buttons were a perfect addition for this card layout.
For my final card, I am using collection #3 featuring Ice Cream Marci by La La Land and papers from the Beach Babe Collection by Pink and Main. This very bright and cheery patterned paper collection has become one of my favorites. I will definitely be order the entire paper pad.

After stamping and coloring the image using my Copic Markers, I used a stitched oval die to cut out the main focal point image. Putting this card together I followed sketch # and finished it off with a sentiment from the Year 1 Sentiment Stamp by Scrapping For Less.

Copic Color Combination
Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20
Hair: E29, E25, E21

Ice Cream Cone: E43, E41
Ice Cream: R85, R81
Shoes: C9, C7, C5
