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 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 | 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
Dress: R85, R81
Jeans: B97, B95, B93
Ice Cream Cone: E43, E41
Ice Cream: R85, R81
Shoes: C9, C7, C5

I created a process video of the cards I made using the March Flavor of the Month Card Kit by Scrapping for Less.
