Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition Valentines 2019 Kit | Stamping on Candles | Giveaway Winner

Hello everyone,

Here is one last Valentine’s Day inspired project for the Valentine’s Day Series of this year and this one is a special gift that you can create and give to someone special.

Simon Says Stamp Special Edition Valentine’s 2019 Kit featuring the adorable sloth and fox family, colored with Copic markers and heat set on a candle.

For this project I’m using two of the stamps from the Simons Says Stamp Special Edition Valentine’s Day Kit for 2019. The kit is sold out, but the stamps are available for purchase separately from the kit.

This project was inspired by the wonderfully talented Alyce Keegan from Kit and Clowder. This was a special free class that she offers to her current class subscribers each month that you stay on.

She provides a free markers 101 class on her website for everyone to checkout. I can tell you that I’ve been a subscriber for some time and the techniques and tips she has taught me are invaluable to developing my coloring skills.

For more information feel free to check out her website at https://www.kitandclowder.com/

For my candle projects, I created a template to help me color by stamping the image and the sentiment exactly as I would want the completed project to look.

I used my Copic markers to color in both of the images by working on a small area at a time. As tissue paper is not the most ideal paper for Copics, I took care to work in small areas to ensure that I get a nice blend between the colors.

There was a winner announced in the video from the giveaway held on my channel and the winner is Sarah Gibbs. Please contact me with your address so that I can send the package out.

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

 

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!

Valentine’s Day Series 2019 | SFL Arctic Sentiment Stamp | Lawn Fawn Polk Heart Backdrop

Hello everyone,

The first Valentine’s Day card of this year, based on the current Scrapping For Less Facebook Group Sketch Challenge turned out pretty adorable.

Scrapping For Less Arctic Sentiments Stamp combined with Lawn Fawn Polka Heart Backdrop die colored with Copic Markers and ink blended background with Distress Oxide inks, Valentine’s Day Card.

I combined the moose stamp from Scrapping for Less and the polka heart backdrop from Lawn Fawn to create this not-so-traditional Valentine’s Day card.

First, I began by working on the background by ink blending Fired Brick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide inks on to a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. I then die cut the heart backdrop and set the panel aside to work on the focal images.

Scrapping For Less Arctic Sentiments Stamp combined with Lawn Fawn Polka Heart Backdrop die colored with Copic Markers and ink blended background with Distress Oxide inks, Valentine’s Day Card.

For my little moose to look a vee bit more festive, I hand drew in hearts hanging from his antlers and used my Copic markers to color him in.

Color Combination

Antlers: E55, E57, E59
Head/body: E33, E35, E37, E39
Nose/beard/belly: E35, E33, E31, E30
Hooves: W7, W5, W3

To assemble the card, I adhered the hearts panel to a white A2 sized card base, added a strip of patterned paper across the bottom and added my sentiment on top of two hearts.

Here is the entire process of the card I made!

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
