Greetings friends and fellow crafters. It’s LeeAnn and I am here today with my first post for Scrapping For Less in for June 2019. I had so much fun while making this card, using Avery Elle’s “Sea-Prise” stamp set and I hope you enjoy it.
To start off I used Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxides to make my cover layer. I used an MFT Stencil (Make Waves) to create the scene. Once dry, I spritzed on some water to help with the look.
I then stamped the schools of fish using the Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide. I stamped the Shark and Pufferfish using GinaK Amalgam Black Ink, and stamped the sentiment with the same. I cut out my images with the Scan N Cut and colored with Artist Loft Alcohol Markers.
My layers were put together using GinaK Connect Glue. I love the ease of use for this little bottle.

Good Morning all my Crafty Friends! For our introductory paragraph how about a history lesson on the 4 elements of our kit? As we delve into Myths and Legends this month let’s take a closer look at these creatures.
According to Wikipedia on Nessie:
n Scottish folklore, the Loch Ness Monster or Nessie is a creature said to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is often described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. Popular interest and belief in the creature has varied since it was brought to worldwide attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with a few disputed photographs and sonar readings. The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a phenomenon without biological basis, explaining sightings as hoaxes, wishful thinking, and the misidentification of mundane objects.
According to the Ancient History Encyclopedia on the legendary Pegasus:
Pegasus (or Pegasos) is a winged-horse from Greek mythology which was fathered by Poseidon and was born from the severed neck of the gorgon Medusa, slain by Perseus.
Most of us can’t see fairies. They live in a parallel universe called the “realm of the fey.” According to legend, fairies went into hiding to avoid us because … well, we invaded their lands, so what else could they do?
As we modernized the world with electricity, built roads and cities, and cut down trees, the fairies were forced to “go underground” and hide in caves, burrows, underwater fortresses, and finally into the spirit world.
According to Wikipedia on Gnomes:
A gnome /noʊm/ is a diminutive spirit in Renaissance magic and alchemy, first introduced by Paracelsus in the 16th century and later adopted by more recent authors including those of modern fantasy literature. Its characteristics have been reinterpreted to suit the needs of various story tellers, but it is typically said to be a small humanoid that lives underground.

Hi! It’s Lynnea Hollendonner and I have a project for the Scrapping for Less blog today using the Avery Elle Cool Beans stamp set and some colored pencils! And there’s a video at the end of this post!
I love the cute little coffee cup image in the Cool Beans stamp set and I toyed around with a bunch of ideas in my head before settling on this one! I used the Splatters stencil from Tim Holtz and some Ground Espresso Distress Ink to create my background. I taped down my stencil and then blended on the ink keeping it darker at the bottom and lighter at the top.
I stamped my coffee cup with some ink safe for colored pencils and grabbed a few colors of my Prismacolor pencils. I usually tend to stay away from colored pencils. I’m not good at coloring – especially with pencils. I can never get colors to blend and I always have streaky pencil marks. I usually use a blending stump and some gamsol to blend the colors together, but I can’t seem to keep a good point on the stumps and the gamsol almost shreds my paper. I watched Jennifer McGuire’s video where she showed how to put gamsol into an alcohol ink blending pen and use that to color with pencils and I was AMAZED! I had to try it for myself! Watch the video below to see exactly how I colored this cup!
I put down some quick color with my pencils and then used the blending pen filled with gamsol to blend the colors together. And look! No streaky pencil lines! I cut out the cup and popped it up with foam and added some colored hearts as accents to finish off the card!
Hi Crafters. Have you guys been working on Christmas cards as much as I have? Today I decided to switch it up a little bit and work on some gift tags.
I used the A Merry Little Christmas stamp set by Avery Elle to create 4 tags. I started by doing some ink bending on the background of each of my tags using Distress Inks.
I stamped my images onto a piece of Neenah Solar white and colored them with my Copic Markers then fussy cut them out.
Next, once the backgrounds were completely dry, I white heat embossed my sentiment onto the tags (with the exception of the bear. There just was not enough room) and popped up each of my images onto their tags.
I added a few details with a white gel pen and some shimmer (of course) and called them done. First set of tags for the year done!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a creative and crafty day!!
Hi Everyone, it’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma up on the Scrapping for Less blog. Today I have lots to share with you. In fact I have 30 cards to share with you. I was able to get back into my groove of obliterating the card kits to see how many cards I could get from it. I was “Up North” (northern Minnesota) on vacation when I had a chance to play with this kit. I was only able to bring a small amount of supplies so I was not able to use any of the dies or embossing folder as I didn’t want to lug my heavy big shot with me. I did bring my Brother Scan N Cut as I thought I would have more versatility with that.
So while my husband, my father in law and my nephew were out on the lake fishing every night, I sat at the table and crafted, making cards. I hope you like them and find inspiration.
