Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde, I am so glad you could stop in for a quick peek at what is in store for this month’s Flavor of the Month card kit. The papers create a perfect starry night and this little snowman looks like he’s definitely making a wish.
After stamping the image out in Gina K. black amalgam ink I colored it in with Copic markers doing my best to create a night sky. I colored over the stars in the image because I knew I wanted to use the stars from the sequin collection I received in the collection to place where the stamped stars are. Finished the card off with one of the sentiments from the stamp set stamping it in VersaFine majestic blue ink.
I am so looking forward to seeing the rest of the cards/projects that the design team comes up with using this month’s card kit! Make sure to join us this weekend for the full hop and thanks again for stopping in.
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde bringing you a card made using one of the cutest encouraging stamp sets I’ve ever used! “Balloon Ride” from Paperie Ink has several critters to choose from and enough hot air balloons to do a little balloon like I did or to do an entire scene.
Here’s how this card came together:

I really enjoyed using this stamp set, I always know I have my hands on a good stamp set when as I am working with it for one card I already begin thinking of what I want to do with it for my next card.
Thank you for joining me today on the blog and taking a closer look at Paperie Ink’s “Balloon Ride.” I hope you get any encouragement you may be needing today and also take a minute to encourage another.
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde sharing a card I made using several goodies from SFL. This time of year I find myself wanting to make Fall, Halloween, and Christmas cards. What I don’t typically find is enough time, am I right? The card I am sharing with you today has the colors that make me think of Fall and the critters too.
Here is a rundown of what went into making this card:
This card came together very easily and would have been a quick card but I decided to fussy cut out the figures instead of using my Scan n Cut which I almost immediately regretted. Those moose antlers are no joke! I love the way it turned out and look forward to sending it on to some friends.
Thank you for stopping in today, I hope you will make some time for yourself and get creative.
Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde sharing with you one of my all time favorite SFL stamps “Teresa Talks Fall”. So many things to love about this time of year: pumpkin flavored everything, cooler air (in Florida we don’t get crisp air until at least January), & Fall decorations.
Kim here from @cardmakingblonde here today wishing you Fall Blessings!
Here in Florida we have seen temps dipping into the 80’s so Fall has officially arrived! We joke about it but if you are either from here or if you’ve lived here long enough there really is a change in the feel and smell of the air that tells you Fall is here. I still wish we had the changing leaves but alas, you can’t have it all right?
Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde. Today I am sharing a scene card that was made using SFL’s “Winter Fairies” stamp set AND “Fairy House” stamp set. For this card I started by stamping the string lights then decided what other elements worked best and the scene pretty much built itself. You may notice that beside the house is only one tree and that was intentional because space was certainly needed between the tree and the fairy.
The sky in the background is a blend of Copic Markers. Since the string lights were “on” I really wanted a dusk or early evening sky which also turned out to be a wintry sky as well so that was a nice unexpected bonus. If you look closely the paper trimming the scene is from SFL’s “Winter in Pink” paper pad. The fairy is colored in delicate pinks to go with that paper and it wasn’t until I went to adhere it all that I realized my scene just didn’t leave much space for the patterned paper but the snowflakes made a nice mat for it.
Thanks so much for stopping in today, I hope you are inspired to get crafty!
Kim from Cardmaking Blonde celebrating the end of Summer with a card featuring paper pad “Cool Treats” from SFL. The little bunny floating in the water on his watermelon floatie is from the “Hello Sunshine” stamp set from Paperie Ink.
Image is stamped in Amalgam ink from Gina K. then colored with Copic markers. Since the floatie is a watermelon I chose to use the watermelon and coordinating papers which was then run through a die cutting machine with a stitched rectangle die. Used a stitched flag die on the watermelon paper because I wanted the watermelon paper to be prominently featured. Cut the water piece of paper out with a 2.5 inch circle and nested it in a larger circle. The bigger circle actually has a double stitch but only one is showing which ended up working perfectly considering the other dies I used are single stitched. To finish it up I added glossy accents to the watermelon seeds.
Thanks for stopping in to check out the blog today. I hope you are at least a bit excited to head into this Labor day weekend!
Kim here @CardmakingBlonde bringing you a sneak peek for August’s Flavor of the Month card kit. One of the ingredients you will receive in this card kit is acetate sheets, so I used mine to create a shaker card. I’ll keep it simple because the big release is coming on August 29th at midnight and there will be a whole lot of hopping going on!
For the last several months the Flavor of the Month card kit has sold out. Don’t be left sad and empty handed! Make sure to sign up for your subscription (this way you also don’t have to try to stay up until midnight if you aren’t a night owl). Of course if you are a risk taker there will be the option to buy a one-time kit as well.
Hello my fellow crafters, I am so glad you are here today! I cannot believe we are so close to September and before we know it we’ll all be staring down Christmas wondering where the time went. Scrapping For Less has been creating beautiful paper pads and one of the newest ones is “A Red Christmas” and it’s a must have!
The card above shows off several of the sheets from the “A Red Christmas” paper pad. I just couldn’t bring myself to cover up the ornaments on that main middle panel which is why I went with die cutting the sentiment and letting that be the focal point. Originally cut out in kraft paper it wasn’t showing up enough for my taste so out came Nuvo drops in white to make sure the sentiment would stand out. Also added some dots to the little tab at the top right.
Below is a pic of all the recently released paper pads. Grab yours before they’re gone!
Thank you for stopping in today. I wish you time for yourself this week to do whatever makes your heart happy.
