Hello there, crafty friends! It’s Alicia a.k.a Crafty Al and I’m so excited to be back to share some more Fall inspiration using some Scrapping for Less products!
For my card today I used the Neutrals Vol. 1 paper pack, along with the Give a Hoot? stamp set to create a cute, quick and easy card. The sentiment I chose was “Owl always look out for you!” and could be sent out for many occasions/situations.
To color my images today I used my homemade gamsol marker along with some colored pencils. This is a great way to smooth out those colored pencil lines without paper stumps.
I decided my owl looked like it was hanging in space, so I brought in the tree from the stamp set and turned it into a branch. To do this I had to do some masking – I just love the reveal.
To finis the card off I stamped my sentiment onto a fishtail strip and added some yellow gems to match the beak and feet. If you would like to see how I made today’s card, please click on the image below…
I’ve used the cute Cut-Aparts from the Apple Orchard Pickin’ paper pad to create these sweet Fall inspired cards. I had to get creative with my layers as I was running out of card stock from my card kit leftovers. I share a trick for when that happens in my process video… you can check that out below.
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.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life and today I have a Never-Ending Fun Fold Card I used the “Give A Hoot?” and “Teresa Talks Fall” stamp sets available at the store and Cozy Fall paper pad.
Be sure to check out the video HERE for the details!
Happy Fall! It’s a beautiful warm and breezy day here in Minnesota. The leaves are turning beautiful colors of orange, yellow and dark reds. And all I can think about is making Christmas cards!! Go figure!
Hello Everyone and Happy Monday – fall is in full swing and that means Pumpkin Spice everything!
Today I grabbed the “Teresa Talks Fall” stamp set and the SFL “Neutrals Vol. 1” paper pad for a quick Autumn card! I stamped with image with Copic friendly ink and colored with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment out and cut out with an oval die. I used Wild Honey Distress Ink to add color around the sentiment. The sentiment and image were popped up on foam adhesive.
I used the Wild Honey Distress Ink to stamp the coffee/pumpkin image on the inside of the card.
I used the envelopes as the base of my album, adhering the flap of one envelope into another envelope to make a set of pages. I used Art Glitter Glue for this step. You just repeat the process until you have the amount of pages you want. Once you get your last envelope added on, you take the flap from the very first envelope and adhere it down to the very last envelope you added. You can see the full process in the video.
Once my album was put together, I trimmed the patterned paper down to 5 3/8 square for both the covers and inner pages. This allowed a small Kraft border to be visible around my patterned paper. I decorated the pages with the scrap strips I had left from cutting down the 6×6 paper, along with the stamped sentiments and images.
I adhered my decorated pages to the album with Scor-tape. I finished the album off with some sequins throughout, just to add a little pop of bling.
Once I finished the album, I realized I had a bunch of scrap strips leftover, so I decided to make a card to use those pieces up.
I cut down a piece of cardstock to 3 3/4 by 5 inches. I added some adhesive across the whole front of this panel and then started laying the strips down diagonally across my panel. I added a piece of cardstock behind this panel as a card mat. I used one of the At the Beach sentiments that I had stamped but not used for the album as the sentiment for this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed seeing the Golden Beach paper as well as my quick little mini album! Have a great day!

You may remember seeing a sneak peek or two of this sketch during our reveal and hop for the new September 2020 FOTM Card Kit – Orchards & Patches… if you haven’t hopped with us yet , you can start hopping —> here. Now, let’s check out the card I created as inspiration for the sketch…
A cute slimline featuring the adorable gnome from Collection Two: Apple Orchard Pickin’… isn’t he just the cutest?! I used the sweet Harvest Time Stencil included in the Banana Split subscription… blending some Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks over the sunflower one at a time. I cut my slimline card front measuring 3-1/2 x 8-1/2″ from Speckled Orange card stock and adhered it to a white slimline card base measuring 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″. I trimmed down my sunflower background to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″ and used a corner rounder punch on all four corners. I adhered the background to my card base and cut a 3/4″ strip of Jellybean Green card stock and stamped the Happy Fall sentiment masking each of the words separately so I could stamp the sentiments next to each other. I stamped them with Clear Embossing ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. I adhered the green sentiment strip to the card base and set it aside.
I stamped the adorable Apple Gnome stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with the following Copic Markers:
Skin ~ E000, E00, E11
Beard ~ C00, C1
Hat ~ E51, E55
I stamped the hat of the Apple Gnome onto a couple scrap pieces of patterned paper from the collection and fussy cut them out and adhered them to the hat. I then fussy cut the gnome… also cutting off portion of the apple on his hat… and adhered him to a white die cut circle. I fussy cut the cute little sunflower and leaf from a piece of the patterned paper and adhered them to the gnome’s hat. I adhered the circle to a scalloped circle that I die cut from the Speckled Orange card stock. I popped up the focal image on the card with foam squares. To finish off the card, I added a few of the tiny sequins from the Banana Split subscription all around the card. I think it turned out pretty cute!

Hello Crafty Friends – It’s Alicia from @callmecraftyal – thanks so much for stopping by! I am here today to share a trio of cards using some Fall goodies from Scrapping for Less
I put out a request for help on my YouTube channel over the weekend. I shared with viewers my new Scrapping for Less goodies and asked them which paper pad and stamp set they would like to see me use for my video today.
It was a close race, but the winners were the Cozy Fall Paper Pad and Teresa Talks Fall stamp set. I have to say I was very pleased with the winner. I just love that main focal image in the stamp set and the texture on those Fall papers is gorgeous! Because the SFL papers are 6×6 I decided to use the August 2020 SheetLoad of Cards sketch for my layout.
Once I had all of my papers cut per the instructions I stamped and colored up 3 of the girl images from the stamp set. For coloring today I used colored pencils and my homemade gamsol blender pen. I just like the way the Gamsol removes the colored pencil lines.
Once the images were colored and fussy-cut I adhered them to the sentiment block with art glitter glue and popped them up on the card front with foam tape.
If you would like to see how I made these cards, you can check out my YouTube video by clicking on the image below.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Alicia / Call Me Crafty Al
