Hello Everyone! Christine with Pattercrafts here with a mostly 1 layer card. Today I wanted to build a scene with a lot of the stamps found in this set – Magical Mermaids by Sunny Studio. I first stamped all three mermaids from the stamp set on some Canson watercolor paper. I used Archival Jet Black Ink because it is waterproof. Today, I am using the Arteza Real Brush pens to color my scene.
I cut masks from Post It notes – the kind that are full adhesive – and covered the bottom 2 mermaids that I want to be sitting on the rock. After I masked the mermaids, I stamped the rocks. I also wanted the sea grass to be behind the rocks so I made a mask from the rock stamp and then covered the rock. Once done, I stamped the sea grass.
*When stamping a scene and you use masking, remember to stamp the image that will be in the “front” first.*
Once all the stamping was done, I used Arteza real brush pens to color the images and background. When I color with these brush pens, I use an acrylic block and a waterbrush. I usually lay the Arteza color down where I want the darkest areas, then color on the acrylic block and pick the color up with the waterbrush. Once all the images were colored, I added 3 different blue colors to an acrylic block and colored the entire back of the scene.
To finish the card, I cut the mermaid tails from Scrapberry’s Ocean Enchantment pattern paper. I added a little bit of highlight with a white gel pen and a little shimmer with the Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.
Thank you all for joining me today! I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
I stamped and colored some images from the Critters Ever After stamp set with my alcohol markers. One thing I’m trying to do lately is leave more neutral colored areas. I struggle with coloring because I use too many colors. I’ve been loving white lately, so I kept lots of white in my colored images. I thought the Pretty Little Rainbows papers from the May 2019 Flavor of the Month kit were so gorgeous that I bought extras! I used one of my favorites for my background.
I added some cloud die cuts and added my images to my card front. Simple – but I love how the rainbow background shines with the white colored images! Watch my process video below!
Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my final Scrapping For Less project for May 2019. I had so much fun making this, other than the video that I tried, and it stopped working half through.
How I made this fun Magic Color Slider Card… without the die…
Take an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet cardstock, score at 5.5″ on the short and 4.25″ on the long.
2. Cut away the top left panel as this will be used later for your slider.
3. If making your card portrait as I did, Cut .25″ off along the outside of the right panels.
4. With the remaining lower left panel score in .25″ and cut the top and bottom corners at an angle.
5. Decide if you want a Circle, Square, Rectangle or whatever hole for your window, I went with Rectangle using my stitched rectangle dies. I folded my panels so that the bottom left which is what would be the top panel would be cut with the die and ran it through my die cutter.
6. For me at this point I cut in .25 from each side on the top right so that it would say down easily.
7. I then folded the upper right down over the upper left, and folded the lower left over to cover the same, to put the panel that was upper right in between the two.
8. Using score tape on the little flap I closed it up by tucking it into the back panel. making a big pocket with a panel in the middle.
9. Cut a piece of acetate to be 5.25″ x 3.75″ and using a piece of score tape attach to the center top of the panel we had cut away in step 2 which I cut to the same measurements.
10. Stamp the image on the acetate using Staz-On ink in the same place it will be on the inner panel. For I stamped on the acetate, then positioned the piece I had already cut and colored in the same spot so they lined up.
11. Using pattern paper out of the “Believe” paper pack I used my stitched rectangle dies to make frames for the front of my card and panels for the slider part as well.
12. Using a tab die from a Lawn Fawn set I made a pull tab and attached with score tape to the top of the slider panel and attached some bakers twine to that for a pull string.
13. Putting the card together at this point was easy, I slid the panel with the pattern paper and colored image behind the white panel and the acetate panel in front. It is all hidden by the frames on the front of the card. After some stamp surgery I stamped the sentiment on the cloud and attached it to the top of the frame to complete my card.

Good Morning all my Crafty Friends! For our introductory paragraph how about a history lesson on the 4 elements of our kit? As we delve into Myths and Legends this month let’s take a closer look at these creatures.
According to Wikipedia on Nessie:
n Scottish folklore, the Loch Ness Monster or Nessie is a creature said to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is often described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. Popular interest and belief in the creature has varied since it was brought to worldwide attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with a few disputed photographs and sonar readings. The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a phenomenon without biological basis, explaining sightings as hoaxes, wishful thinking, and the misidentification of mundane objects.
According to the Ancient History Encyclopedia on the legendary Pegasus:
Pegasus (or Pegasos) is a winged-horse from Greek mythology which was fathered by Poseidon and was born from the severed neck of the gorgon Medusa, slain by Perseus.
Most of us can’t see fairies. They live in a parallel universe called the “realm of the fey.” According to legend, fairies went into hiding to avoid us because … well, we invaded their lands, so what else could they do?
As we modernized the world with electricity, built roads and cities, and cut down trees, the fairies were forced to “go underground” and hide in caves, burrows, underwater fortresses, and finally into the spirit world.
According to Wikipedia on Gnomes:
A gnome /noʊm/ is a diminutive spirit in Renaissance magic and alchemy, first introduced by Paracelsus in the 16th century and later adopted by more recent authors including those of modern fantasy literature. Its characteristics have been reinterpreted to suit the needs of various story tellers, but it is typically said to be a small humanoid that lives underground.

I did a little stamping on my pink card front using VersaMark watermark ink so the little butterflies are faint in the background. Love the subtle touch it gives! I added a strip of one of the gorgeous papers in the collection and then set the card aside. I stamped all of my images onto a small piece of white card stock measuring 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″. I stamped the images again on post it notes, fussy cut them out and the applied them to the stamped images. I then lightly blended my background… when done, I removed the masks and colored the sweet images with the following Copic markers:
Butterflies ~ BG000, BG01, BG53
Skin ~ E000, E00
Wings ~ RV0000, RV10
Hair ~ RV10, RV11, RV21
Dresses/Shoes ~ YG0000, YG23, YG25
I mat the focal image with the green card stock in the kit and popped it up on the card with foam tape from my stash. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white card stock and then partially popped it up (on the bottom) and adhered the top portion with liquid glue. To finish off the card, I added a few sequins in groups of two. So cute!!
Have you ever had a design in your head and you just could not get it to turn out? This is not exactly what I had in my mind but close so I went with it….after the 4th time I got it right…LOL!
This is my most favorite collection in this whole kit…I love, love the paper and love the stamp as well. Onto my card.
My vision included vellum, a fairy and glitter! So I actually was able to finally have that come together well. Here is my card…I am extremely pleased with how it came out.
Be sure to join us for the reveal…midnight Friday night. I am sure these kits are going to go fast. If you would like to subscribe you can go here and check out all the options….if you want your subscription to start with this kit make sure you subscribe prior to midnight Friday night.
Hello Everyone! Christine from Pattercrafts here with a Sneak Peek of the Flavor of the Month Card Kit!
Today I decided to make a circle card – which isn’t something I usually do but I had a lot of fun with this one! I cut a circle card base with the largest circle die I had – paying attention to move the die just above where the base is folded. I used a die cutting machine to create a 4 inch scallop circle from the Wisteria card stock from the kit.
I chose a few pieces of pattern paper from the collection and cut the pieces from different dies (1 circle for the main panel and 3 fishtail banner dies in different sizes). To make sure the banners were curved where the circle is on the main panel, I placed the pieces where I wanted them and used washi tape to hold them together. Keeping the pieces on the circle panel piece, I then lined the circle die back up over top and used more washi tape to hold it all together so I could run it through my die cutting machine.
I colored the Pegasus image from the stamp set in this collection with copic markers and added lots of Wink of Stella. I then added the image to the card with some foam tape.
On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment and the star images that comes with the stamp set.
I’m super excited about this month’s card kit. Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed and get inspired!
