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.

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.

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.

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.

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star ~ Zig Clean Color Real Brush ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

It’s been a hectic two weeks around here, hence the lack of posts and participation in the card challenges that I love so much.
But I’m finally finished with the project that took me away from my craft time and now I can get back in to my happy place to create some cards.
This card was inspired by Your Next Stamps’ Sketch or Color Challenge # 76. This week I choose to do the color challenge with this one layer card.

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress ink background handmade Christmas card.

I did not intentionally set out to make a one layer card (originally, I wanted to use an evergreen trees die in the background) but the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry, so they say!
I started by stamping the images onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Versafine Onyx black ink and masking it using Molotow art masking liquid.
I have to say that I was not a 100% happy with this product when I removed it as it left some of the blue residue onto the image. Perhaps it’s a user error and I will try another time before I make up my mind.
I wanted to create a wintery scene background and used my favorite distress inks for the night time sky and added a spritz or two of the Shimmer Sparkle spritz for an all over sparkle. I finished the background with splatter of diluted white paint to mimic snow.
I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color my images and very little water as I had to cover up some of the blue residue left by the masking pen.

Colors I used:
Bear: 068 Deep Brown, 065 Mid Brown and 072 Beige
Scarf: 029 Geranium Red and 022 Carmine Red
Gingerbread man: 072 Beige
Shoes/bow 032 Persian Blue
Hat: 022 Carmine Red
Star: 051 Lemon Yellow

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress ink background handmade Christmas card.

To put this card together, I cut the main panel using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a white A2 sized card base.
The sentiment I used is from the same stamp set and I die cut it with a banner die after stamping it with Versafine Onyx black ink. And that will complete this simple yet I think stunning Christmas card!
I followed the Color Challenge on this card and hope that I made a card that inspired you.

As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Your Next Stamp Woodland Cuties~Copic Colored~Sketch Challenge #74

Hey everyone,

It’s been an interesting month or so around here, with a hurricane threat, evacuation, power outage for almost a week and two weeks of steady cleaning up after the storm. But we are super blessed that we were together as a family and endured very little damage.

This week I’ve created a card inspired by the fall season for a very special cousin for her upcoming birthday.

Your Next Stamp Woodland Cuties stamp colored with Copic Marker patterned paper handmade card.

To start, I cut a panel of a 4.25” by 5.5” bright orange cardstock and adhered it to a standard A2 sized card base. Next, I cut a panel of a 4” by 5.25” piece of patterned paper from Heidi Grace Designs and added some foam tape for dimension.

For the background piece, I used Distress Oxide Ink in Twisted Citron for the grass, Salty Ocean for the sky and ink blended the areas onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. To finish off the background piece, I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn.

Working on the focal point image, I stamped the adorable little fox from Your Next Stamp Woodland Cuties onto a piece of Spectrum Noir ultra-smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink.
I used Copic markers to color the fox and add some shading to the grass on the background piece.

Fox: YR65, YR18 and E19
Blender 0, W1 and W3 added Wink of Stella Glitter Brush marker
Grass: YG01, YG03 and YG05

I fussy cut the image and adhered it to the background piece using some foam squares for dimension. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment and used a ornate square frame die to cut it out. And that completes my card.  I am entering this card into the YNS Sketch and Color challenge # 74. More details are available on their blog.

As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
