Don’t you just love the colors of Autumn?! I do! And I love coloring floral images with yellow and orange to make a fall bouquet!
I stamped out one of the bouquets from the Pinkfresh Studio Fancy Blooms stamp set and used Copic markers to color in the image. I used R08, YR09, and YR07 for the orange flower. The yellow flower I used YR04, Y17, and Y15. The leaves are BG78 and BG75 and the brown sprigs are E79 and E74.
I cut out a few of my favorite patterns from the Lawn Fawn Fall Knit Picky paper pad with stitched dies and adhered them to a card front. I trimmed out my colored bouquet and added it to the stitched oval with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Studio Stamps Beautiful Autumn stamp set onto a strip of patterned paper with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink and added it on top of my bouquet.
I added a bit of shimmer to my bouquet with Liquid Pixie Dust to finish the card! Thanks for stopping by today!

I’ve never used a Doodlepop from Doodlebug Designs before – but seriously it made this card so easy! No coloring or fussy cutting required! And there’s even dimension built in! How fabulous! I had an idea to pair the koala with a sunrise backdrop and sandy foreground.
I started by using a ray stencil to add some quick yellow sun rays to the bottom of my card. I looked through the Find it Trading Wild Animals paper pad and found a brown tone on tone paper and when I turned it on the side it looked like sand. Perfect for my simple scene! I cut a strip about an inch and a quarter wide and added it to the bottom of my card. Then I added my Koala Doodlepop right on top! So effortless!
I needed the perfect sentiment to finish my card, so I used some brown ink to stamp a sentiment from the Hero Arts Color Layering Red Panda stamp set. More of these Doodlepops are definitely on my wish list! They make cardmaking a breeze! Watch my video below to see just how easy this card is to make!
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!
Hey, everyone – it’s Lynnea! Today I created an outdoor masculine card using just papers and cardstock stickers! … and a bit of die cutting! Head over to the Scrapping for Less store to grab these papers and stickers! They’re perfect for quick and easy guy cards!
The papers in the Campfire & Lakeside 6 x 6 paper pad from Photoplay are so fabulous! I love the color scheme! Blues, reds, and greens! Perfect for outdoor cards! I grabbed one of my favorite patterns – the fish pattern – and built my card around it! I die cut a plaid piece to be my background and trimmed down the fish piece to fit inside of the die cut background.
The At the Lake cardstock stickers from Paper House are so realistic! I knew I wanted to use the canoe and some accessories on my card, but they were getting lost. I used one of my favorite “sticker tricks”! I put the stickers down onto white cardstock and trimmed around the edge to leave a white border. This helps them stand out! I added the canoe, some plants, and the duck as well as the sentiment.
This card came together so easily! I love when products coordinate together! Thanks for joining me! See you soon!
Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Kaisercraft “Wood Camping” Icons and Scrapping for Less Paper pack in collection #2 of this month’s FOTM kit!
Here is what I created:
First, I need to apologize.
Teresa and Kim have this AMAZING card kit and
they pack in a TON of goodies and I have been playing safe. I have not been using all the embellishment’s
in the kit. So, for my sneak I stepped
out of my comfort zone and used the Kaisercraft “Wood Camping” Icon pieces. I will admit that I scrap lifted the
idea/layout from Stacy (here). I also
used a die that did NOT come in the kit.
Hurry and grab this kit because it’s ADORABLE!
Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Sunny Studio Stamps “Summer Picnic” and Echo Park’s 6x6 “Good Day Sunshine” paper pad!

Here is what I created:
I love sketches! I have a few favorites that I check out every week. As I was getting ready to create this card, I had no idea what I was going to make. Sketches to the rescue! I started (and finished) with Sketch Saturday #572!
