Scrapping For Less May 2019 Card Kit | Myths and Legends | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

I’m so excited to be a guest designer for this month’s kit for Scrapping For Less. Today, I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Flavor of the Month May Card Kit. This month’s kit is all about Myths and Legends.

I’ve been a long-time fan of the Scrapping For Less Card Kits because the value of their kits far supersedes their price and you always get enough of a variety within each collection but still within the theme.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For the first card, I colored the adorable Nessie from Kindred Stamps with Copic markers and added the image to the patterned paper with waves. The only thing left to do to complete this card was to add the sentiment and a few sequences from the collection.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 3

I simply adore this image of the Pegasus by Sunny Studio Stamps. I used the patterned paper from this collection and followed sketch three to create the background. After Copic coloring the image, I added it to a stenciled sky background to complete this card.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 2

The feel of this collection reminded me of garden fairies and I colored the images of the two fairies to reflect the softness of the patterned paper.  Next, I chose several pieces of patterned paper from this collection and added a little bit of the Sour Apple cardstock for contrast.

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 4

And finally, for the last card which happens to be my favorite from the kit, I colored the adorable gnomes with Copic markers to reflect the bold patterned paper. I added a piece of vellum to the background to soften the brightness so that my little gnomes are still at the center of the card.

Kindred Stamps Polynesian Adventures, Glass Slipper Princess and Building Blocks Thank You Cards

Hey everyone,

I hope you’re still enjoying the holiday season with your family and friends! As a preschool teacher, I am taking some much needed time to rest, relax and play in my craft room. I needed to make a ton of thank you cards since I have the most generous students and each one gave me a Christmas gift.  And since my students are 3 years old, the pop culture stamps from Kindred Stamps are perfect for them.

I decided to use three different characters, just to mix it up a little bit. I stamped all of my images onto a piece of Neenah solar white 80 lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and used my Scan N Cut 2 to cut all of the images with a slight border.
I have to say that I LOVE my Scan N Cut 2, it has more than paid for itself, and made this project in particular easy to complete.

After coloring the images, which took a little time since I had 20 to color, the only thing left to do is assemble my die cut pieces onto a piece of white card stock, add some little touches of embellishments and write my thank you messages for my students.

I absolutely adore the end result of these thank you cards. I may create some more to have on hand for the next round of gifts! As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
