Scrapping For Less: FOTM January 2019 Card Kit | Perk Up and Start the New Year | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: January Flavor of the Month Card Kit. The January kit is called “Perk Up and Start the New Year” and is all coffee themed. There are still some kits available for purchase here.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For my first card, I used the coffee cup and the humming bird from the collection one stamp set. I used my Copic markers to color up both of the images, leaving the cup image on the circle panel and fussy cutting the humming bird.

Color combinations: Cup B16, B14, B12, B00 and Coffee E00, E11, E13, E18

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 3

For the second card, I followed sketch three to create a paper layered designs for little Newton. This happens to be my most favorite card because I just adorable the color combination and of course the image of Newton.

Color combinations: Donut E49, E47, E44, RV34, RV11 Newton E44, E43, E42, E41

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 4

For this card, I tried my hand at creating double shaker elements and was besieged with a number of issues along the way, hence why shaker cards are not my strong suit. In the end, the card does look adorable with the shaker elements and I love it.

Color combination: Skin: E00, E11, E13, R20 Hair E47, E44, E43, E42 Clothes BG45, BG53, E53, E50, E13, E18 Coffee E50, E53, E18, E15

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 2

And finally, for the last card I used my Copic markers to color up Anya in semi neutral tones. I wanted her to stand out against some of the business of the patterned paper behind her.

Color combinations: Skin E04, E21, E13, E11, E00, E000, R22, R20 Hair E29, E18, E15, E13, E11 Clothes RV14, RV13, EV11, N5, N3, N1, N0 Purse G99, G94, G24 Coffee E13, E11, E00, E29, E27, E25, E21

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 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!

Lawn Fawn So Owlsome | Thanks Teacher Line Border Die | Copic Marker | Teacher Card

Hello everyone,

I had an opportunity to get into my craft room recently and play with some of the new Fall/Winter 2018 Lawn Fawn products to create an adorable owl teacher card.

Lawn Fawn So Owlsome Stamp set, Thanks Teacher Line border die and Knit Picky Fall Collection Paper pad teacher card.

I stamped the three owls, an apple, tree branch and the glasses onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo ink and colored them in with my Copic markers.

Color combination I used:
Owls: E37, E35, and E31 outer part of the body.
E53, E51 and R20 on the face and belly.
YR04 and YR02 on the feet and beak.
Apple: R27, R24 and R22
Tree Branch: E27, E25, E23 and E21

Lawn Fawn So Owlsome Stamp set, Thanks Teacher Line border die and Knit Picky Fall Collection Paper pad teacher card.

To assemble my card, I die cut a few different patterned papers from the new Knit Picky Fall Collection using a stitched rectangle die, a stitched hillside border die and outside in stitched scalloped rectangle die. I also used the new Thanks Teacher line border die which I die cut using black glittered cardstock and added as my sentiment across the center of the focal point panel.

Check out the link below for the full tutorial on how I created this sweet teacher card!

Thanks so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

I’ve been wanting to get a Doodlebug Collection and create a set of cards from one collection for a while now and I found the perfect opportunity with the So Much Pun Collection.

I used several items from this collection and I have not even made a dent in the things I purchased to create these cards. I can easily create at least a dozen more.

Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit | 4 cards from 1 kit

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing several techniques for the four cards I made using the contents of Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit.

Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring rainbow watercolored Modern Rose Blooms stamp background card.
Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring single layer card design with the fence stamp and hand drawn flowers.
Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring layered patterned paper with floral image.
Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring ink blended Modern Rose Blooms background card.

The first card I made incorporates a single image stamp with a patterned paper (happens to be my favorite) from the kit. I layered the patterned paper with a piece of craft cardstock in between to create a very vintage inspired look to this card. The stamped and colored image combined with a simple sentiment on top a piece of vellum completes this card.

Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring layered patterned paper with floral image.

The focus on the second card was a single layer card technique really to showcase the sentiment. I absolutely love the font of that sentiment. The card itself sort of has a watercolor picturesque feel with an inlay design of the card panel.

Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring single layer card design with the fence stamp and hand drawn flowers.

The third card I made incorporates a white heat embossed background of the Modern Rose Blooms stamp with a layer of Tattered Rose Distress Ink. The floral stamp with a sentiment are stamped and white heat embossed onto a piece of vellum which was fussy cut around the edge. Once I layered the focal point panel on top of the ink blended background, I felt as though it was blending in to the background. I never realized that you can color vellum. I only tried using my Copic Markers to go over the vellum but in the future I will use different mediums and see how it results.

For the fourth card and my favorite, I white heat embossed the background with the Modern Rose Blooms stamp this time onto a piece of watercolor cardstock. I wanted to create a rainbow card for some time and this was the perfect opportunity. Using my Prima Marketing Watercolors, I added all of the colors of the rainbow and finished the card off with a simple sentiment embossed onto a piece of black cardstock. I really wanted the focus to be on the rainbow background and I think I achieved that.

I had a lot of fun creating cards from this kit, I only wish I had more time to create but alas the day of a mom is never done and that’s all for me today! Check out the video link below to see how I created these cards. As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Scrapping For less June FOTM Card Kit At the Beach featuring LDRS Just Beachy stamp and You are my Sunshine Patterned Paper by LDRS, Copic colored, sending kisses handmade card.

After using my ScanNCut2 to die cut my images, I worked on creating the card layout with the patterned paper and the beach scene for my critters. I’ve created a process video of the card linked below.

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!

Simon Says Stamp July 2018 Card Kit | 10 Card 1 Kit | Cool Summer

 

Hello everyone,

Today I’m featuring the Simon Says Stamp July 2018 Card Kit called Cool Summer and the 10 cards I made using all of the goodies from this kit.

Simon Says Stamp July 2018 Card Kit called Cool Summer, 10 cards 1 Kit projects.

Simon Says Stamp July 2018 Card Kit called Cool Summer, 10 cards 1 Kit projects.

Although the kit is sold out,    You can still purchase the contents of the kit separately to create projects you see.

 

 

I combined the pink patterned paper with three pineapples to create this simple “You’re one cool Pineapple” card.  Copic color combinations I used on the pineapples are YR27, Y28, G29, YG67, G24 and W9

For the second card I used a stencil to create the sun background and simply popped on the image and the sentiment to complete this card.  Copic color combination I used on cactus is G02, G29, G19, and G16. The pot color combination is E29, E27, E19 and E15.

I wanted a beach scene for this little flamingo so I had to create a sand dune and an ocean background using texture paste, gold embossing powder and the wave patterned paper from the kit. I colored the flamingo using Copic markers RV13, RV11 and RV10.

This is my favorite card I made using the contents of this kit. After stamping the background of the sun, I colored each image using my Copic markers Y17 and Y15 and adhered the panel to the Island Blue cardstock from the kit.

For card five, I did a little mirror image stamping of the fish so that they are looking at each other. After coloring the fish with Harvest Moon Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, I added them to the waves pattern paper background on top of a white cardbase.

“Be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons” superbly highlights the pink glitter paper flamingo die cut with the less noticeable flamingos in the background.

Card 7 features the watermelons on a white panel die cut with 3 window cutouts on top of the green leaf cardstock from the kit. The watermelon Copic color combination is R35, R22, G19, G16, G14, YG11 and YG01 with a little glitter added on top of the center melon to complete this card.

I wanted a clean and simple design on this card and focus mainly on the two cacti in the heart. The color combination I used on these cacti is YG25, YG23 and YG21. The pots were colored same as before using E29, E27, E19, E15 and E13.

With the help of the stickers from the kit and the cloud stencil, I created this simple and adorable “Loved” card.

And for the last card I made using the kit, I focused on using one of the patterned papers as the focal image panel by popping it up on foam and adhering it to the Island Blue panel cut out with a scalloped stitched rectangle die.

So there are my ten cards in all, as well as the process video of each card I made!

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

Simon Says Stamp June 2018 Card Kit | Fly Me Away | 5 Cards 1 Kit

After what seems like an eternity waiting on my computer I finally got the word that it’s not fixable and am on my way to replacement. My computer had the unfortunate accident of meeting with two jumping kids, I suppose I share some of the blame for leaving it where I left it for the damage to occur.

In the meantime, to control my anxiety I sat down to create several cards using the contents of the June 2018 Simon Says Stamp card kit. It’s a beautiful kit featuring floral images and papers with a watercolor look.

I had a hard time cutting into the lovely patterned paper but I did manage to bring myself to use a few. For the first card, I made a no bulk shaker card using tulle and this beautiful feathers patterned paper that I die cut using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle frames.  This allowed me to create the frame which I tucked the tulle under after adding some coordinating sequence. To complete this card, I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and added it to the top of the card.

For the second card, I again used a piece of patterned paper that I cut slightly smaller using a stitched rectangle die from MFT. I wanted a slight border of the cardstock underneath. Then I stamped the floral images and embossed them with silver embossing powder onto a piece of watercolor paper. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color up the images and fussy cut them out. I popped up the floral images onto foam tape and arranged them to the center of the card. For the sentiment I used one of larger stamps and added it across the entire length of the card.

For the third card, I used the purple balloon paper, which happens to be my favorite from the collection. The original intent of this card was to be the shaker card but I inadvertently cut it incorrectly and I had to come up with a plan B.
Plan B was to cut the patterned paper down to 5 1/2” by 4” leaving a small space on the sides and adhering it on top of the black and white stripped paper from my stash. To finish this card, I added the sentiment and added small strips of black cardstock to the sides for a smoother transition.

I thought I would try using the embossing folder for card four and embossed a piece of white cardstock which was cut on an angle. I took an ink blending tool and Tonic Studios Mousse in Aquamarine and with a very light hand added the mousse to the embossed cardstock. Adding a strip of the gold cardstock and embossing the sentiment completed this card.

For the final card from the June 2018 Card kit, I decided to create a card with the entire large stamp image. First, I stamped with large floral image onto a piece of watercolor cardstock and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Using the Gansai Tambi Watercolors, I colored the image with pink and green. I then fussy cut the image and added a layer of foam tape to the back of the floral image to pop it up for a little dimension. To add a little elegance to this card, I inked up the edges with VersaMark and embossed the edges with gold embossing powder.

Spring + Summer 2018 Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop | Craftin’ Desert Diva Cactus Coffee | Copic markers

Hello everyone,

I have one last card that I made for the Spring+Summer 2018 Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop featuring a Craftin’ Desert Diva Digi Stamp of this adorable cactus with a coffee cut!

Craftin Desert Diva Cactus Coffee Digital stamp Copic colored and patterned paper Coffee card.

I printed my image onto Neenah Solar white 80lb. cardstock with a laser printer and colored my images using Copic markers.

Color combination I used:

Cactus: YG07, YG05, YG03 and YG01
Flower and cup: Y35 and Y32
Pot: RV34, RV11 and RV10

Craftin Desert Diva Cactus Coffee Digital stamp Copic colored and patterned paper Coffee card.

I used two patterned papers from two different collections for the base of the card and rectangle for the cactus to sit on.

I decided to create my own sentiment based on the discussion I had with my kids earlier about needs vs. wants. Any true coffee drinker knows that COFFEE is a NEED!

I kept this card pretty simple because of the busyness of the patterned paper and of course the star of the card, the little adorable cactus.

 

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