Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my project for the day 3 Sneak Peek of the May 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit. Get your order in now so you have it before it sells out. Be sure to head over to Scrapping for Less to grab yours!
This card was made using paper from one collection, stamps/twine from another, tag from another and sentiment from yet another. I had so fun putting this together and really hope you enjoy.
I stamped the open book image and cut using my Scan N Cut. I then stamped the lantern, fireflies and mushroom with GinaK Amalgam ink and colored with alcohol markers. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark and heat embossed using Gold embossing powder.
I took one sheet of 6″x6″ pattern paper and used both sides of it for this card. One side is my background and the other are the pretty flowers pocket along the bottom. I used Kraft colored cardstock from my stash for layers and my card base so that it was all brought together with the Kraft tag. The tag is a bookmark that can pull out of the pocket to use later.
The May Hop is this coming Saturday at 12:00 am. Be sure to check back and see what the team has in store for you. And Be sure to head over to Scrapping for Less to sign up for your kit today!
Hey everyone! It’s Lynnea! Have you ever tried coloring an image with Nuvo Dream Drops? I did and the results are fantastic! I have a video for you and you can find the products I’ve used in the Scrapping for Less store!
Then came the fun part! I squeezed out some of the Indigo Eclipse Nuvo Dream Drops onto my glass work surface and picked it up with my stylus and “colored” with the Dream Drops! How cool! I love that the Dream Drops allow the stamping to show through because they are translucent.
I added some stamping to the background of my cards for interest using a My Favorite Things background stripe stamp and the stars from the Critters Ever After stamp set. Then I added my images with foam squares! Check out the video below!
Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea! I know many of us find ourselves scrambling in November and December to create Christmas cards for friends and family. At Scrapping for Less we are celebrating Christmas all year long! Once a month we will be sharing inspiration for a Christmas card! I used the Photoplay Here Comes Santa paper pad and a sentiment from the Stocking Full of Joy stamp set from Your Next Stamp to create a set of 7 Christmas cards!
I used about 5 pieces of patterned paper to create these 7 cards! And in the end I only had 2 little strips left! And I created all 7 cards in about 20 minutes! Yay! I have a video tutorial at the end of this post so make sure you check it out!
I started by cutting up some pieces of patterned paper – some had little images (like pictured above) and some into strips of varying widths. I didn’t follow any sketches, but these are super basic layouts that can be easily replicated!
I needed a sentiment for some of the layouts and the “Happy Holidays” sentiment from the Stocking Full of Joy stamp set seemed perfect! I love the little script!
I had a bunch of strips of paper left over, so I decided to use them to create one more card! Plus I couldn’t let that little Santa image go unused!
Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a project I had a lot of fun creating.
This Picket Fence stamp set came in perfect timing. I had a coworker who has been down a bit lately, not like herself. While at work the day after this stamp set arrived I started thinking about what I could do, and I came up with this card. The next day it was on her desk when she arrived and now it hangs on her corkboard.
To make this cute card, I first stamped the Picket Fence Sympathetic Unicorn and Cloud out with Gina K Designs Black Amalgam Ink. I knew I would be using Alcohol Markers and this is a safe ink to use. I alternated colors with my markers to color the mane in a rainbow scheme.
The sentiment is stamped inside the card using the same Amalgam ink.
The background pattern paper sheet is from Bo Bunny “Believe” collection.
I stamped the sentiment on a sheet of vellum using the Amalgam ink and heat embossed using Nuvo Jet Black embossing powder. Using strategically placed liquid Multi-Medium Matte under the sentiment, cloud and unicorn
I was able to adhere the Vellum without it being seen. I finished the card off with some “Love Potion” Nuvo Dream Drops.

Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea and I’m so excited about the Scrapping for Less April 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit! The theme this month is Spring Critters and there are some SERIOUSLY cute products in this kit! Let’s see a little sneak peek into this kit!
I LOVE the Spring Critters theme in this kit – but I’m always a sucker for florals, so of course I was drawn to one stamp set in particular! I created a stamped patterned background to match one of the little empherma tags in the collection.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek! And I hope you’re excited for the full reveal of the April 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit! The full reveal happens Saturday, April 27th at midnight!
Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea and I created a set of one layer cards perfect for Spring using the Warm Spring Wishes stamp set from Gina K Designs!
I created my own stencil to use for these cards. It was so simple to do – I just took a piece of stencil plastic and die cut a circle from the center! I actually used the negative piece – the center circle – and adhered it to the center of my cards and used two colors of Distress Oxide Sprays over the top – Cracked Pistachio and Iced Spruce.
The basic layout of all four of my cards is the same. I stamped the leaf image from the Gina K Designs Warm Spring Wishes stamp set repeatedly around my masked circle and stamped a butterfly in the center. I used Distress Oxide Inks for all of my stamping except for the sentiment – I used Versafine Onyx Black ink for that.
I hope you’ll check out my video below for the tutorial! Thanks for stopping by!
I love to use small images in a stamp set to create a background, so I decided to create a wreath type background with the small floral stamps. I used heavy 110lb cardstock and alcohol marker safe ink to stamp my images. One tip to remember – in order for this process to work your cardstock needs to be square. I positioned the bouquet style stamp and stamped it and then turned my cardstock in my MISTI and stamped again. I repeated this twice more until I had stamped four times. I repeated with the other stamps.
I colored with my Spectrum Noir Triblend alcohol markers. I used Dull Green, Light Green, Ice Blue, Coral, Purple, and Citrus blends to color my flowers. I decided I wanted to add the fawn image, so I stamped her and colored her with the Earth Brown and Golden Brown blends with a bit of Light Pink for her eyelids and ears.
To finish off the card I stamped the banner image with gray ink and stamped my sentiment with Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink. I hope you’ll watch my video below to see just how I created this card!
