Hello! It’s time for my monthly Scrapping for LessFlavor of the Month five cards one kit video! Because of product issues this video is a bit late this month, so I tried to make up for it by creating some extra cards with the kit this month! Instead of my usual five cards I’m sharing EIGHT!
Fall is one of my favorite seasons – it comes in close behind winter – and the products in this kit were so inspiring that I couldn’t help but to create more and give you extra inspiration!
The papers in the first collection are ADORABLE! The pumpkin patch patterned paper is my FAVORITE! I created an easy framed scene with the cute kid cardstock pieces and a simple shaker card with the stamp set!
Sweater weather is the name of the game for the second collection! I used some of the stickers and patterned papers to create a simple banner card and I used repeat stamping to create an almost one layer stamped card.
Okay. Let’s be honest. THESE CARDS ARE MY FAVORITE!!! They scream fall and cool and comfy sweater weather! I die cut some of the patterned paper and pieced them onto ink blended backgrounds! So easy but really packs a punch!
The little moose in the fourth collection is the most adorable thing in the world! I sure wish we had moose where I live! I paired him with a die cut sentiment included in the Banana Split level kit!
To finish off the kit I used the stamp set in the Banana Split kit to create another almost one layer card! Watch the video at the beginning of this post to see how easy it was to create those clouds! And let me know in the comments which card is your favorite! See you soon!
Hi Everyone! Luci here with a few cards using the Picket Fence Studios “String of Lights” stamp set.
I love how simple yet lovely these cards were!
To start I picked out A2 size card bases from my stash, cut down white cardstock panels to 4 X 5 1/4 inches. Then I stamped the images and sentiment together using my Mini Misti and Brutus Monroe embossing ink. I picked red, silver, gold, and green embossing powders and heat embossed them. I adhered the card panels to the card bases. Then I simply added some embellishments for one I used sequins from an old SFL FOTM card kit and the rest I used Nuvo Crystal Nuvo Drops, the colors I used were Autumn Red and Silver Lining. Easy Peasy right!
Hi everyone! I’m a lover of classic Christmas colors – but every now and then I feel the urge to create with soft pastel colors!
This card is very easy to create and even to mass produce if you want! I started with a piece of light pink cardstock that I die cut with a stitched rectangle die. I sprayed the back of the Echo Park Magical Snowfall Stencil with some Pixie Spray and and pounced on some white pigment ink over the stencil. I love the look of the soft white on the pastel pink! If you wanted to have crisp white snowflakes you could use Versamark Ink and white embossing powder – but I like the look of the soft snowflakes.
I die cut a large snowflake from some gold foiled cardstock to use as my center piece and added some coiled silver thread for added interest. My sentiment is from the Avery Elle Christmas Magic stamp set and I heat embossed it with gold powder to match the snowflake die cut. And that’s it! See what I mean! Super easy! Thanks for joining me!
This is a 5 1/2 inch square card. I used a die to cut for squares to make the window from a piece of pattern paper from the Santa’s Workshop paper pad cut to 5 1/2 inches, then I made a template of curtains, traced it onto a different piece of pattern paper and cut it out. I adhered the curtains to the window frame.
I then used a solid blue piece from the paper to use as the background. I stamped all of the images for both cards from the “Merry and Bright” stamp set, colored them with alcohol markers, and cut them out with my Scan N Cut.
Next, I adhered the images to the blue panel and checked on placement every now and then by holding the window frame piece over it. Once I had everything in place I adhered the back panel to the card base and then adhered the front panel to that.
To finish it off I stamped the sentiment onto a white strip of paper and fishtailed the ends, then colored it in, popped it up with some fun foam and adhered it to the center of the card.
My second card is also a 5 1/2 inch square but I made a little differently, I used an SVG file and card out the card base and curtain, then I adhered a piece of acetate to the window frame, I ran the curtain through my Big Kick using the Carta Bella embossing folder “Ogee” to give it some dimension, and then adhered it to the window panel.
I glued a panel that I made by using a technique with Copic markers and rubbing alcohol, glued all the images down and then decided I didn’t like it. So I cut the front panel off and the back of the card with the panel down to about 5 1/4 inches and adhered both to the front of a 5 1/2 inch square card base.
Then I decided I didn’t like the white window frame so I colored it with Copic markers. To finish it off I stamped the sentiment onto a white strip of paper and fishtailed the ends, then colored it in, popped it up with some fun foam and adhered it to the center of the card.
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!
