Teresa here today sharing with some inspiration in case you missed it on Saturday. We revealed our first two Create-a-Dex dies. These dies were designed by Stacy Tiedemann (our design team co-ordinator). We are so thrilled that so many of our customers ordered these new dies.
We wanted to bring this extra inspiration and the links to these products cause they are going quickly.
All of the inspiration came from the lives that both Stacy and I did on our lives over on YouTube on Saturday.
Products Used in Creating these Create-a-Dex cards.
We are featuring Sunny Studio Stamp’s most recent release this month.
Kari VanNoy has been crafting for as long as she can remember, but it has only been the last 10 years that she absolutely fell in love with card making. She crafts and teaches others card making skills in sunny Arizona. She loves to see the look of wonder on others faces when they finally “get” heat embossing or ink blending or a new skill. Kari has been a guest designer for multiple companies. She is married with 3 kids and 5 granddaughters! She lives in Mesa, Arizona with her supportive husband and her sweet dog. After her oldest son moved out, she converted the large bedroom into her DREAM CRAFT ROOM, where she continues to create and be inspired every day! Her blog is www.SunshineInMyPocket.com. Follow her on Instagram at @kariavan or YouTube at https://www.YouTube.com/user/Sunshineinmypocket1
Hello! It’s Kari from Sunshine In My Pocket.com and I’m so excited to be a guest on the Scrapping For Less blog! Today I have some cards made with the Prancing Pegasus stamp set and beautiful Fairy’s Garden paper pad.
For my first card, I inked up the background with some Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold. Then I splattered on some white pearl watercolor to give it more of a magical feel.
I stamped some of the stars from the same stamp set on the background using the same colors of Distress Oxide inks. They are a little difficult to see in the photos, but it adds a subtle detail.
I colored up the Pegasus with Copic markers and added some sparkly stickles to the wing. I die cut some clouds from my stash and added WOW! Sparkle glitter to the smaller ones.
That frame is from the diagonal paper in the paper pack and it adds just the right touch! I simply used 2 nesting rectangle dies to cut out that frame. I stamped the sentiment on strips of teal paper and popped it up with foam tape. This is for sure a “magical” birthday card that is fit for a princess!
For my second card I knew I wanted that Pegasus to be running on top of a rainbow. So I glittered up a rainbow and added it to a pink polka dot background from the Fairy’s Garden paper.
I colored the Pegasus’ mane, tail, and wing in the same rainbow colors with Copic markers. Those butterflies and leaves are cut from the paper pad as well! I was so excited to see those butterflies in there and they were so perfect for this rainbow card!
I added some clouds to the card and stamped the sentiment “For My Princess” with pink ink.
I added the Pegasus with foam tape to give it more dimension. I also folded up the butterfly wings just a little to so they look like they are flying!
I hope you enjoyed these projects today! I really loved making them. I’ll see you real soon with some more inspiration.

I am a work at home mom of two girls and two dogs. I own a craft business with my husband and we make paper and wood home décor. It’s a combination of my love of paper and his love of woodworking! I love to paper craft and have made it a goal to start using up my giant paper stash! I have been paper crafting for almost 20 years and my true loves are scrapbooking and cardmaking.

Hi everybody I’m Courtney. I’m so thrilled to be guest designing for the month of December. Scrapping for Less was my very first design team so it’s so nice to be back. I live in upstate New York with my 2 cats, Macey and Franky, who loves to help me color. I’ve been cardmaking for about 9 years now, and coloring for 2. I can’t wait to share some inspiration with you this month!
I am a wife, a mom to two fabulous kids, a librarian, and a card-crafting addict living in Chicagoland. When I’m not taking care of my family or working at the library, you can find me at my craft table playing with stamps and paper and all sorts of art mediums and crafty supplies. I love sharing what I create and love seeing what others create in this wonderful card-crafting community.
