Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde sharing with you what just may be one of the most elegant Christmas cards I have made this year! Now I love heat embossing and the SFL “Ornamental Christmas” stamp set perfectly lends itself to be heat embossed. Once I got the ornament and the sentiment embossed onto the card I pierced the paper inside the bulb’s hook and strung some gold thread through it. Layered the card with gold glitter paper then the last touch was adding glitter gold Nuvo drops in random dots around the card.
I am so happy with how this card turned out! It’s sparkly and elegant, I am so looking forward to giving this card away! Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today. I hope you are getting into the Holiday Spirit we could all use a little more happy this year! Tis’ the Season!!!
I am so grateful that you have stopped by today. Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde sharing a little more inspiration from November’s Flavor of the Month card kit.
I adore this image and the paper included in this collection! At this point this collection has produced two cards and there is enough material left over to produce probably three more. (I liked to use at least three patterns typically so I tend to go through paper quickly.)
Happiness truly is a warm puppy! We added a new addition to our family about 8 weeks ago and she has made us incredibly happy. Our cat has also warmed up to her too. 🙂
Thank you so much for being such a supportive group of crafters, it is always so nice to be able to share a craft you love with others who love it as well. One of my favorite things, especially with cardmaking with the kit, is that we all start with the same ingredients but create such different yet lovely things.
I hope you take some time for yourself and get to create something that will bring you joy.
Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde I have been looking forward to sharing this card with you all! This kit is filled with gorgeous patterned paper, cute images and sweet sentiments.
Here’s how this card came together:
used watercolor paper, the embossing folder that’s in the Banana Split card kit & distress oxide inks to create the heart paper
embossed the sentiment in sparkle embossing powder then cut it out with a sentiment strip die
popped up the sentiment on the edges to keep it level since this card has three layers

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.

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!
