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!
Hello card makers and crafters alike, so glad you are here!
Today I (Kim) am sharing this cute little bunny “Sprinkles” from Your Next Stamp. She is desperate need of caffeine and speaks to my spirit as a coffee lover for sure. The patterned paper is a blast from the past by SFL. I got so excited when I found it in my stash!
I really wanted the cute bunny butt to take center stage because the above image and the sentiment just make me laugh and that is what I wanted for the recipient of this card. I hope it brings them a chuckle.
The two images I used and all the sentiments are part of this one stamp set by Your Next Stamp “Sprinkles Coffee and Tea”. The sentiment on the inside of the card completely pulls at my heart strings and I cannot wait to give this card to a friend.
I colored the images with Copic Markers and when finished I just HAD to add some sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker. The finishing touch was to add some sequins from a previous Flavor of the Month Card Kit and voila, it was complete.
Thanks so much for joining me here on the blog today, I hope you have any easy time finding your favorite go to pick me up!
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde bringing you some more inspiration using Collection One: Hello Spring from March’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
The collection of cards is up above but I am also going to include individual pics of each card so you can get up close if you so choose. I am having so much fun with this kit! A Farmhouse Spring has beautiful patterned paper and some of the prettiest stamps I have now! I cannot stop embossing with these stamps! They look fantastic whether you stamp them in ink or emboss them.
There are a few kits left so grab yours before they are gone! Click here!Also if you would like to be a winner don’t forget there is still time to enter into the Rafflecopter for a chance to win. Click here for details.
The purple card base is from my stash, matted the patterned paper a couple of times using a light gray and light purple cardstock. For the bunny and the sentiment I used the same color pigment ink from Lawn Fawn, Peachy Keen. It came out pinker in the picture than it is in real life, in real life it is closer to that soft peachy color in the paper.
I loved the slim card from the sketches in the kit so much that I wanted to do another one and this little rabbit up on his hind legs was a perfect fit. Working with this kit I have ended up using my pigment inks quite often for sentiments and they are working perfectly. I wanted to stamp the sentiment out in brown rather than black because I thought it would go nicely with the wood plank patterned paper.
Really wanted to show off that fence ephemera and didn’t want to disturb the scene it creates all on its own so I kept it simple with the sentiment .
As I mentioned earlier I cannot stop embossing! This image is stunning in the embossing glitter used here and I didn’t want the sentiment to appear to be competing with it so I stamped it in Manatee from Lawn Fawn ink cubes and it was the perfect shade!
While working with this kit I constantly find myself debating which sides of the patterned paper to use and wanting to use both! If you are anything like me you may be doing the same…well not to worry there are some full paper pads available in the store. Click here to be taken right to them! (You’re welcome!)
Thank you so much for stopping by and if you can come back next Thursday as I continue on with each collection from the kit making more and more cards! I hope you are getting to craft more even if you are working from home or having to stay put. I have gotten so much more crafting done lately and I’m realizing it’s more my mind set than actually have any more or less free time so give yourself permission to play!
Kim here with Cardmaking Blonde and I am sharing a little sneak peek with you before the card kit goes live Saturday at midnight. If you are already subscribed…get excited…I think you are going to LOVE this kit! If you are not yet excited I will include the link right here so you don’t miss out.
Stamped the image in Lawn Fawn pigment ink (2x), stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Black Onyx ink.

So glad you stopped in for a glimpse at Sunny Studio Stamps “A Good Egg” stamp set. This stamp set packs a punch! There are just so many great images to be used to make cards. Great stamp set for Easter but also friendship cards or just telling someone you love what a good egg they are.
Thank you for stopping by to check out the blog. I hope you have some time to take a look around at previous posts as well there are some beautiful cards and projects on the blog.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out what’s up today on The Blog! I have loved Easter since I was little, I can remember digging into my Easter basket as a little one and then having to put it all down to get dressed up to go to the Easter Service and looking at my mom in disbelief that I was going to have leave all of the goodies I JUST found out about!
The love of Easter and bunnies has stuck with me through the years leaving me with a soft spot for cute bunnies and Sunny Studio’s Clear Stamp “Chubby Bunny” have some of the cutest bunnies I think I’ve ever seen!
So here is the journey of the card I made from stamping out the images to having to do a little card surgery but in the end I still arrived with a cute little Easter card I can’t wait to give to somebunny special. (I know, it’s just too precious, I almost can’t stand myself either, lol!)
I stamped out all the images, colored them with Copic Markers and then cut them out using my Scan n’ Cut.
I got out one of my sets of square dies, these happen to be from Gina Marie and I thought it looked like a picture frame and I liked the idea of being able to stamp my sentiment across the top since it looks like a banner. Once I got everything cut out I glued it down using Lawn Fawn’s adhesive which has quickly become one of my faves. I stamped my sentiment using VersaFine in Black Onyx and also blinged up a few things using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker. Once I got my sentiment in place I added a few silver glossy dots from Pink & Main.
I used a white pen to hit the bunnies’ teeth and then a black gel pen to do their eyes and though I would do one little guys mouth. Then things went awry! My black gel pen just put out much more ink than I was expecting or maybe I pressed too hard and that’s why the calamity began I am still not sure. I just know that I panicked and tried to fix it with my finger and the more I touched things the more things just went worse! That’s when I knew it was time to call up another bunny and put this little guy out of his misery.
The surgery went a lot easier than I expected and I was even able to cover up any paper tears with my new little candidate. I wanted to include this part of the journey and a pic to go with it because I don’t know about y’all but rarely do I make a card without having something that needs to be fixed. I will say I don’t typically lose an entire character but hey, it happens.
In the end it all came together and at least I got to use my favorite little bunny which is the one in the center. The little brown bunny eating a chocolate bunny, this image cracks me up!!! In my head when I see this little guy chowing down on that chocolate bunny all I hear is “Nom, nom, nom, nom!”
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you will get the chance to create today or at least do something that you’ve been wanting to do! Take care and I hope to see you back here soon.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Today I am sharing with you what I made with the Some Bunny stamp set from Lawn Fawn. This type of stamp set is my favorite! It can be used for friendship, thank you, love and of course Easter. I wanted to make a card for a friend who went above and beyond for me and the sentiment on this card is just perfect.
cut out the little characters by fussy cutting them then went around the edges with a black marker to give a more finished look
using a 6x6 paper pad from my stash I used a green sheet that could work for the ground and a blue sheet that could work for the sky even though they have patterns on them
in order to give this card a bit of dimension I put pop dots on the back of the planter and tucked the carrots in behind it
after stamping the sentiment in Versafine Ink black onyx I covered it with clear embossing powder and hit it with a heat tool to get that shiny look (I hope it comes through in the picture)
I had stamped out the images a couple of times in case I messed one up and had a little bunny that didn’t make it in the scene on the front of the card so I decided to add him to the inside (when I can I like to do something to the inside). This card was fun to make and while making this one I came up with a few more idea for other cards, hence the reason I LOVE this stamp set, there are just so many different scenes to create with it!
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you are having a great Friday and are headed into a fabulous weekend!
Hello! Crystal here with a fall themed baby card… actually, I had so much fun making the first card, I decided to make two cards to share with you! Let’s get to it!
My first card has layers using the Lawn Fawn Knit Picky Fall paper pack on a dark brown card base. I stamped the sweet bunnies from the Brutus/Monroe Bunny Kisses stamp set on a piece of white card stock and then stamped them again on a post-it note. I masked the bunnies with the fussy cut post-it note and then blended Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Vintage Photo distress inks. I took the mask off and colored the bunnies using the following Copic markers ~ E30, E31, E35, E53, E55, E57, YR24, R20. I die cut the piece using the large cross stitch rectangle die that I mat on the same dark brown card stock. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark watermark ink and then heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. I popped up the panel usingfoam squaresand called this one done!
I used similar items for my second card. I stamped the bunnies again on white card stock and used the same mask to protect the image while I blended Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, and Scattered Straw distress ink. I then removed the mask and this time I used Copic markers to color my ground for the bunnies. I used E53, E55, and E57 with a touch of 0 around the edges to softened it up. I die cut the piece using a wonky stitched square die and then mat it on dark brown card stock. I then popped up the piece on a kraft card base. I did debate coloring the bunnies… but I really like how they are the focal point on the card here. The white pops! And because I had so much white popping on the card, I also decided to keep the sentiment white so I stamped it in VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. To finish the card I wrapped some natural twine around the card a few times and made a little bow. There you have my two Fall themed baby cards.
You can get this sweet Brutus Monroe Bunny Kisses set here.
Thanks for stopping by!
See ya next time.
