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

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.

The Greeting Farm A Lil’ Magic ~ colored with Copic Markers ~Shaker Birthday Card

Hey everyone,

This week I’m playing along with The Greeting Farm challenge and made my very first shaker card as a challenge entry.
Ever since I started card making, I’ve been completely intimidated by shaker cards, probably because the two times I’ve tried to make one was a complete fail, but I was determined to try one more time before completely forgoing the entire idea of ever making a shaker card. And here is the final result!

I’m also SUPER excited to share that this image is colored with Copic Markers. I was super blessed to find a very kind lady that sold me her many Copic Markers at a yard sale.
So onto the card.
I honestly had zero ideas of how this card would turn out in the end and it was sort of a hodge podge of attempts at this or that. But I think in the end, it came together and it’s a super cute card.
To start, I stamped the unicorn from The Greeting Farm’s A Lil’ Magic stamp set onto a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and colored the image with Copic Markers. (Excited squeal!)

Colors I used:
Hair: BV0000, BG02, RV02 and RV04 and then added Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen
Body: V01 as shading and colorless blender to blend

After watching a couple of YouTube videos as a refresher, on how to create a simple shaker card, I was finally ready to give it a go again. To start, I cut a lilac polka dot patterned paper from American Crafts’ Dots and Stripes collection as the background for the shaker and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set.
I die cut a frame from lilac cardstock using Gina Marie Designs’ Scalloped Stitched Rectangle die and cut an opening inside using an x-acto knife to create a frame.
I adhered the acetate using a strong adhesive to the back and added the strong foam strip to the back of the frame. Taking some sequins from my stash I added the colors I thought went well with the base of the card, which is very sparkly and glittery teal.
After I adhered the window of the card, I gave it a good shake and crossed my fingers that no sequins flies out.  YAY, all went well!

To finish the card, I die cut my unicorn image and adhered her to the bottom of the card using some foam tape for added dimension.
And that completes my very first SUCCESSFUL shaker card. It’s silly but it’s a proud moment for me! As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
