Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a card featuring some pretty cute critters.
It’s a pretty simple layout because I wanted the focus to be on the adorable critters. The Sweater Weather on the Safari is one of my favorite stamp sets by My Favorite Things. I paired the stamp set with the Scrapping for Less Holiday Flowers 6×6 paper collection from the October Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
The images were simply colored using alcohol markers.
Hi Everyone, this is Renee’ with Delaney Jane Cards and I’m so excited to be on the Scrapping for Less blog today. I am one of two guest designers this month and I cannot wait to share some fun things with everyone.
I had some trouble with my colorless blender while coloring this image and wasn’t sure I could salvage it so I had to find a solution. I colored the sky and used that same troublesome 0 Copic to add swirls to the color to camouflage my error.
Sometimes a simple creative solution can keep your project from getting tossed in the trash.
I really loved the color pallet this paper pad offered. It gave me a set of colors to use on this adorable melting snowman. I even got to use my favorite Copic YG17.
Your Next Stamp has some of the cutest sets and most include fun sentiments like this one. Life is too short for bad coffee. It makes me giggle as this snowman melts for his love of the wonderful caffeinated goodness. I figured the mug was supposed to be a snowman, but I wanted to spread the green color around a bit more and made it green… another opportunity to use YG17. I have no clue why I like that color as much as I do, but I try to incorporate it in all my green combos.
Thank you for stopping by & remember to GIVE CARDS GENEROUSLY!
Hello hello! Kim here bringing you a card I made with an elegant die from Find It Trading, Christmas Baubles. This delicate die cuts out very nicely, a little tip though if you do like I did and use glitter paper also use a shim it’ll give you a smoother cut. The glitter paper I used is self adhesive which makes it even more user friendly in my opinion. I used silver glitter paper and gold glitter paper because I thought they would really stand out against the red and I was very pleased with how it turned out.
Now I like the baubles a whole lot but I definitely agree that they are not able to carry the whole card but I also wanted them to really stand out. I decided to use MFT’s Merry Christmas Greeting stamp and embossed it in white embossing powder. With this large sentiment offset it left a good amount of space for the Christmas Baubles to fit right in beside it. I adhered it all down to a card front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and with all the glitteriness (not a real word I know) of the baubles I felt it was finished. Yay! One card down and oh so many more to go, good thing I love making Christmas cards right?
Thanks so much for stopping in and checking out the blog today. I hope you get to do something for yourself.
This is an A2 size card or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I used a dark brown card base from my stash. I stamped the leaves on the back of the glitter paper and scanned through my Scan N Cut, then I flipped the glitter paper over so the glitter side was facing up and let the machine cut out the images. I stamped the images of the fox and acorn from the stamp set and colored them with Copic markers (colors in the photo below). I didn’t color the leaf of the acorn because I stamped that on the back of the Glitter paper and cut it too.
Once I finished up the images I used the Lawn Fawn Knock on Wood Paper Pad and cut the back panel in orange to 4 X 5 1.4 inches. The turquoise colored piece was 4 X 3/4 inches. The used dies from a Karen Burniston set to cut the yellow background piece and the light brown scalloped edge piece of pattern paper and layered all the pieces onto the card.
I stamped the sentiment on the top of the top panel of the card, adhered the acorn and used foam tape on the fox and placed it on the card.
Hello! Alicia (Crazy Paper Chick) here and I am so excited to be a guest designer for the month of November for Scrapping for Less.
For my card today, I used the beautiful pattern paper from Carta Bella called Christmas. If you love a rustic theme for your Christmas cards, you will love this paper! For my stamp set I used LDRS Creative’s Arctic Animals. The sweet fox paired perfectly with the rustic theme of the pattern paper. I chose to color the fox gray to give it a soft look against the “wood” background of the pattern paper. For the sentiment I used a piece of pattern paper from the same paper pack.
I added some ribbon from my stash and adhered everything down to my vanilla card base measuring A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ once scored and folded). I topped the card off with some Nuvo Drops in Honey Gold to add some sparkle.
I was an elementary school teacher for many years. During Christmas time for Social Studies we studied Christmas traditions around the world. This was my absolute favorite time of the year with my students. So, for our Christmas Around the World card kit I have chosen my most favorite countries we studied to feature.
Mexico: Great food and wonderful traditions centered around Papa Noel.
Sweden: St. Lucia was my favorite tradition in Sweden we studied.
Australia: My students got the biggest kick out of the fact that it was hot and summer there during Christmas.
Germany: Of course what would a study be without studying the origin of the Christmas tree.
Please sit back and enjoy the elements we put together for our Christmas Around the World Flavor of the Month Card Kit.

I used Copic Markers to color all of the images.
The card is a Slimline card measuring 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. The die is from my stash (Whimsy Stamps).
Even though they are very simple cards using stickers I think they came out very nice.
For a bonus project I wanted to make a couple of gift card holders using up some of the paper scraps. I recently watched Angie Juda’s YouTube tutorial showing this idea. Click on the link to her information HERE.

Hello everyone, it’s Stacy here from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a sweet card featuring the Hero Arts stamp set called Home for the Holidays.
I hand cut some snowdrifts with my scissors and attached them flat and layered onto my card base that was inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I ran a bead of Nuvo Glitter drops in White Blizzard along the edges to give them some interest and sparkle.
I stamped the images on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock in Momento Tuxedo Black in and colored them in with Copic Markers. After that I fussy cut the images and adhered them to my card with adhesive foam.
Adding a little bit more White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops finishes off the card nicely.
I hope you enjoyed my card and it inspires you to make some winter cards.
