To create this card I started with an A2 size cardbase or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I used Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. I stamped the images I wanted to use with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with copic markers. I used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out.
I cut the glitter paper for the front panel to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and cut out a 3 1/4 inch circle towards the top center of the card and then cut out another circle from white card stock with a 3 1/2 inch die.
I adhered all of the tree images to the 3 1/2 inch circle panel and popped the mouse images up with some foam dots. I adhered the 3 1/2 inch circle to the top of the card base and then adhered the glitter paper to the card base lining up the circles. I stamped the sentient “Cold Hands” from Hero Arts Ink in Moss on a white strip of card stock. I cut the banner down to 4 1/4 X 3/4 inches and adhered it towards the bottom of the card with some foam tape.
To finish it off I stamped on the inside of the card the sentiment “Warm Heart”, as well as, the image of the mittens with the string of them creating a heart. I colored in the mittens with copic markers.
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 Everyone! Today I am creating four cards using gift tags from the Kaisercraft Silver Bells tag pack. I thought it would be fun to create four cards that vary in time and/or skill and each one is still a fabulous looking card! In no particular order; I’ll describe how I created each card.
I love adding glitter paper to my Holiday cards. This Sticky Back Silver Glitter paper by Darice comes in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets and is perfect for adding to your cards as a panel. While, I love the glitter paper; I didn’t want it to be the only layer so I created this snowflake panel to play off the snowflakes on the tag. I used a Snowflake embossing folder and Bristol Smooth card stock to create the layer and then added some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to make the snowflakes pop! The Silver Bells tag packs contain 6 each of 2 designs (12 total) and do come with twine but I chose to dig into my stash and find this really sparkly silver ribbon to use instead. I added the tag with some foam adhesive and all done!
This card is a great layout for needing a card in a pinch. The main panel is pattern paper. I always want to add some sparkle so I trimmed down some Sticky Back Silver Glitter paper by Darice for the left edge. I added some ribbon to the tag and added it to the card using foam tape. Easy, peasy!
I had to add a shaker card to the mix! This tag has so much going on I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to use pattern paper or just use the Gold Glitter paper and….. the Sticky Gold Glitter paper by Darice won! I cut the Gold Glitter paper with a rectangle die and then temporarily adhered a tag where I wanted the shaker window to be. I used a craft knife to cut the Gold Glitter paper around the tag to create my window.
Before removing the backing on the glitter paper, I put the piece on my card base where I wanted it and added the tag to the cardbase through the opening. I then took the backing off the glitter paper – added the acetate and foam tape all around the window opening (which was tricky since now the adhesive on the back was completely exposed). I thought I would like to add a bow to the bottom of my card base so I added the white and gold twine on the back so all I had to do was tie a bow in the front. Next, I sprinkled a sequin pack from my stash all over the tag and carefully laid my panel down.
The twine ended up being too thick to create a nice looking bow – I tried a knot and that seemed too big as well. So I ended up cutting it down and tucking it in behind the panel.
The last card I made involves a stencil and some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse! I taped down the dots stencil and used a palette knife to spread the mousse over the stencil. Once done, I removed the stencil and left the card to dry overnight. To finish the card – I used the piece of Sticky Gold Glitter paper that I cut out of the panel from the previous card an used it as a mat for one of the Silver Bells tags. I added the piece directly to my card front and voila!

Hey, everyone! I love that “In the Wild” is August’s theme at Scrapping for Less! Get ready for lots of cute critter projects from myself and the rest of the design team! Today I used a set of dies to create a faux cover die look! Super easy and looks great! Find more on my blog!
Are you anything like me? – I have so much colored cardstock in my craft room! I’ve made a promise to myself to start using it! I decided to make a faux coverplate background using the Jungle Leaves dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I do this all the time – it’s super easy! I grabbed two colors of green cardstock – a light green for the background and a mid green for all of my die cutting. I used the curved vine from the Jungle Leaves die set and cut it multiple times from the mid green cardstock. Then I glued all the little vines onto the lighter green cardstock to create my leafy vine background.
The sloths in the LaLa Land Crafts Take it Sloth stamp set are just too cute! I stamped one hanging from a branch onto heavy weight cardstock and colored him with my alcohol markers. I used my scissors to trim around the image and added it to the right side of my background so it looks like the sloth is hanging off the side of my card.
I stamped a coordinating sentiment in green ink and trimmed the edges of the sentiment strip to banner ends and added it towards the center of my card. I have a video tutorial for this card below!
Katie here from 2CraftyKaties to share a sneak from the June 2019 Flavor of the Month kit!
I used the stamps and paper from collection 3.
When I saw the otters and then the sentiment I instantly thought of Yin and Yang! So, I VERY carefully stamped them together and used my scan and cut to get this image! I used the following copic markers on the otters and in the space between them (I didn’t want the white space to be a focal point); BG23, E11, E25, E33, E35.

Hi Everyone! It’s Luci from “My Crazy Craft Life” with Center Box Pop Out or Pop Up Card! I am so happy with how this turned out! Be sure to check out the video for all the details, dimensions, and tips I learned along the way HERE! For this project I used The Greeting Farm “Hands Down” and Sunny Studio “Magical Mermaids” stamp sets. I stamped the images with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and I used Tsukineko Jet Black to stamp the glasses from the Hands Down set on to Acetate, and Copic colored all of the images. The cardstock was from my stash.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a card made using a stamp set from Sunny Studios “Home Sweet Gnome”! I love gnomes so I was super excited to be able to make a card with this set! I also used the Knock on Wood Lawn Fawn paper pad. You can head over to Scrapping for Less to pick up yours at a great price. Be sure to check out my video for all the details HERE!
To make this card I did a lot of masking! A LOT!
I stamped and masked the images on the largest die cut circle I have about 4 inches. Next, I used distress oxides, a cloud and hillside stencils to add some color to the background. I colored the images with Copic markers and then used a smaller smaller circle die on the front panel. I popped the panel up with some foam tape and put it over the larger circle directly on to the card. I cut a 1/2 inch strip for the sentiment and then added sequins from a past SFL FOTM card kit and a purple bow from some ribbon.
