Hello friends! Thanks for stopping in today and checking out the SFL blog. Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with a few more cards from the Easy Peasy collection. May’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit is all about encouragement. This collection is a sweet way to say Hello, Hang in There, Thinking of
Here’s what I have come up with AND I still have enough papers and goodies to make a few more cards that I will share on Instagram:
The papers in this kit are just beautiful and I had a hard time choosing which side of the paper I wanted to use! Don’t forget that the best way to ensure you will get your card kit is to subscribe but if you want to see what you are getting the release is the last Saturday of the month. So if you make sure to come to take a peek as soon as it reveals you’ll probably be okay to order a one-time kit…probably 😉 .
Thanks again for spending a bit of time with me today and I hope you get to do some crafting of your own!
Benny the Bigfoot is just adorable! I have been having fun making cards with him and his footprint. Here are a couple that I have come up with so far and I’m not even finished with all the goodies from this collection:
Totally digging the color scheme of this card, using an inside scalloped die gave me this almost bottle cap looking circle which was a perfect place to put Benny. Used an embossing magic powder bag then VersaMark ink to stamp him down and white detail embossing powder to heat emboss this image. Stamped the sentiment out in Versafine black onyx ink then heat embossed that with clear embossing powder so it would be super shiny.
Using MFT sweet tooth ink to stamp the image onto the heart sticker (sticker is included in this collection) it left a perfect chalk-like look to the sentiment. Stamped footprint in VersaClair black ink because I knew I wouldn’t be coloring it in. Finished off this card by adding some enamel dots (okay, hearts) from my stash.
I am still playing with this collection so I’ll share the rest of the cards made with it on SFL’s Show and Share FaceBook Group. It’s a great place for inspiration and sharing what we’ve all been working on with our SFL purchased goodies.
Thank you so much for spending some time with me today here on the blog and I hope you’ll come back next Thursday and take a gander at more cards from another collection in the “Let’s Encourage One Another” Flavor of the Month card kit. If you haven’t already gotten your kit grab one here (ONLY 4 LEFT!!!), and if you want to be sure not to miss out on upcoming kits subscribe here.
May’s Flavor of the Month card kit is just beautiful. From the paper to the extras in the Banana Split card kit so many items perfect for creating encouragement cards. I chose to feature the Weather Together collection because I LOVE rainbows! The paper speaks to my childhood memories and the sentiments are just what I am wanting to say to my friends and family at this time.
Starting out with Bristol Smooth cardstock and using Distress Oxide Inks in Weathered Wood & Stormy Sky to create the clouds with the stencil included in May’s Banana Split card kit. I created the image in the center of the card in the following order. (I have to talk myself through this every time I do it.) Because I wanted the cloud to show completely it was stamped first, then masked off, next the rainbow was stamped then masked off. The last step was to stamp the sun. Using Zig Clean Color Markers I colored in all the images. I then almost ruined this one layer card by deciding to add Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker and forgetting that the Zig markers are activated by water. Thankfully I realized it early on and avoiding some strong language in the craft room, ha ha ha! The sentiment was embossed with Navy embossing powder. Cut out the main scene with a stitched rectangle die and placed on a card front size patterned paper from the Weather Together patterned paper.
We have one more sneak peek before the release of the entire card kit so don’t miss out and if you want to ensure getting your hands on May’s Flavor of the card kit sign up here for a subscription. (Last month’s kits sold out.) Thanks so much for visiting us today on the blog. We look forward to seeing you for the hop this weekend. The blog hop goes live Saturday, May 30th at Midnight EST.
Hello! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde joining you today with some more inspiration from April’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I am in awe of just how much I was able to get out of this collection!
I typically only make cards but this time I wanted to branch out and do a little something different…bookmarks! As a kid and even into adulthood I love bookmarks although I don’t have as much of a need for them with my Kindle and Kindle App on my phone but the need is still there (mostly to save my place in a book of card sketches!).
This was the last thing I created from this collection because I was down to scraps. As I was looking at the pieces I had left and thought about how to use them I spotted the Lawn Fawn die and knew this would be perfect.
There are quite a few elements here from a few different stamp sets. All the images are from Sunny Studio Stamps. The cowgirl and cowboy of course are from April’s kit. The cow peeking his head out and the horse are from Barnyard Buddies and were the perfect additions to this card. I wanted the background papers to really pop which is why I chose black as the cover and finally I embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder.
Here are the bookmarks! The dies are from MFT and I have had them for over a year, this was the first time I used them. They came out so cute that I am itching to make more.
I could NOT get enough of the paper from this collection! (I immediately got my hand on a full paper pad because so many ideas hit me when I saw it.)
The card on the left gave me a chance to do something new to me. The large doily type circle was in my scrap folder (thank you past self) but needed something more. I was crafting with my gal pals virtually (like we do now) and someone said it needs ribbon, well I had twine so I “sewed” it through the holes and voila!
April’s Flavor of the Month card kit is sold out but do not be discouraged! We are about to enter a week of sneak peeks for May’s Flavor of the Month kit and you don’t want to miss it!!! Keep in mind if you want to ensure that you will get your own kit sign up for a subscription. If you want to wait and see what is coming I totally get that just make sure to be quick about buying your one time kit when it releases which will be May 30th at midnight EST. (Which most of us think of being Friday night, I do anyway.)
Thank you for taking a gander at my creations from the Howdy Partner collection! I’m much obliged.
I realize that we have all been grounded as of late but that hasn’t stopped me from dreaming. I have a few cards here that I created using the Best Life collection from April’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Come along with me for a quick rundown of my cards.
If you’ve seen the stamp set you’ll notice someone is missing, for this card I just wanted the scooter so after coloring it, I cut it out went around the edges with a memento marker and adhered it in the oval.
This card came together because I didn’t want to cover up too much of the background paper. I love all the mail images and was having a hard time choosing just one square that I wanted to use. In this collection photo corners were one of the embellishments and every time I see them I see arrows so after trimming off the edges I thought they made pretty convincing arrows.
I pulled in a stamp set from my stash that I thought would be perfect to send to my friend living over seas.
If you’ve had a chance to do the challenge on the SFL Show and Share group on FaceBook this may look familiar. I used the sketch challenge for this card.
I loosely followed the same sketch for this one but had some leftover pieces that I wanted to use. Once I put the sentiment on the tag it looked a little lonely all by itself so I cut out a few of the icons and added them to the tag.
Thanks so much for joining me today and taking a look at what I came up with using this collection from our April Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Don’t forget to sign up for a subscription if you want to be sure to get your hands on May’s kit. April’s sold out!
The cloud background was created using Salty Ocean Distress Oxides ink and LF’s cloud stencil. The background was created using all my scraps left from making cards.
Thank you so much for stopping in to see what’s on the blog today. I’ll be back next Thursday with more cards from another collection out of the April Flavor of the Month kit. I am using a different collection each week, I hope you will join me then for some more inspiration.
Thanks for visiting us today here at SFL. If you aren’t already signed up to get your own Flavor of the Month Card Kit you can take care of that right here. Also take a look at the A La Carte category for great add ons to go with your kit.
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde coming to you today with a lil’ sneak peek from April’s Flavor of the Month card kit! These little buckaroos are from Sunny Studio Stamps, they are so much fun to color. I had so many ideas it was hard to settle on just one.
I used copic markers to create the sky and grass. Not sure it will show up well in the pic but I added some shine to his hat and both of their buckles. For the denim tag I added “pardner” with a white Signo pen. The patterns you see in the background behind the card are pages from the kit. I can’t wait to make more cards!
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde sharing with you more cards I was able to make from March’s Flavor of the Month card kit. Today I am showing off the cards from the Bloom Wildly collection. I am going by the name of the paper pad collection because that is what I’m using even though I used stamps from the other collections in the kit as well. I had to jump onto scrappingforless.com and order more of this paper because I had such a hard time choosing which side to use because I love it all!
Another collection OBLITERATED! It was so much fun and I may have a bit of a hard time parting with these cards. It’s okay though I have more paper pads coming and I will be able to make more. As always I so appreciate you coming to read the blog. Please take care of each other and get your craft on!
Kim from Cardmaking Blonde joining you, I hope today finds you well. Playing with March’s Flavor of the Month Card kit has been so much fun! The ingredients that I received in the Farmhouse Floral collection have been OBLITERATED! The only thing left is the stamp.
Here is what I came up with…
You may notice that I also used the banana split ingredients. My kit had the leaf vine die which I used to cut out of vellum and then colored that vellum with Copic Marker to go with the paper I used. Also used some sequins and enamel dots. The tag above is actually an entire card (didn’t occur to me until right now to take a pic of it opened so you could see it better).
If I could I would turn this paper into bed sheets I think it is so beautiful, I just don’t get tired of looking at it! Thank you for taking the time to visit the blog today. I hope you are getting to craft, read or something that makes you happy. Also try to get outside for a bit as well if you can.
