Gerda Steiner Designs | More Than Pie Valentine’s Day Card | Valentine’s Day 2019 Series

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing a quick Valentine’s Day inspired card for the Valentine’s Day Series on my YouTube Channel. This one features the adorable teddy bear from Gerda Steiner Designs’ More Than Pie Stamp Set.

Gerda Steiner Designs More Than Pie colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper layered sketch Valentine’s Day card.

I just adore how sweet he is and he is so perfect for a Valentine’s Day card. I started my card by stamping the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock so that I can use my Copic markers to color in the image. After coloring, I used my ScanNCut to cut the image out leaving a small border.

Copic color combination

Bear: E31, E33, E35, E37
Ears: RV00, RV11
Snout: E50, E53
Nose/paw pads: W7

I typically do not include the Copic coloring in my process videos but I decided to for this one which I’ve linked below to check out!

I used Valentine’s Day paper from a paper pad I had in my stash, this one happens to be last year’s Recollections Valentine’s Day collection. I followed a sketch design to arrange my die cut papers and adhered them onto a card base. For a little dimension I added fun foam to the last patterned paper layer then added my focal point image and finished off the card with a sentiment and a few pink hearts.

Take a look at the process video of this card and all of the details of the GIVEAWAY in the video description area!

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!

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 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!

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!
