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.

May’s Theme for the month is Myths and Legends
Inspiration from Teresa
I thought I would leave you today with a little bit of inspiration and a story. My absolute favorite flowers are tulips…unfortunately I live in Florida and tulips won’t grow here so I gravitate toward tulip stamps! I used the stamp set called “Timeless Tulips” from Sunny Studio Stamps to create this card. The tulips are as timeless as the myths and legends we will present this month through our card designs.
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!

Hi, friends! I’m here to share a little peek at the new February 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit from Scrapping for Less! Our theme this month is Whip it Up and it’s all about baking and all kinds of yummy goodies! This is one of my favorites! I love baking with my son and this kit gives me all the good feels!
This Whisky Business stamp set is included in the Banana Split level kit for February 2019. I love it so much! The font is gorgeous and I think it’s so punny! I wanted to have a simple background to really make the sentiment shine, so I watercolored some stripes with my Brea Reese watercolors and liquid glitter for a sparkly rainbow background. Then I stamped and heat embossed my image and sentiment with white embossing powder. This kit also comes with some loose glitter, so I used some liquid glue at the bottom of the whisk and added some of the glitter for an extra bit of shine!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at the February 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit from Scrapping for Less! The whole kit will be available on the 23rd! Be sure to come back then to see my unboxing video and more cards I’ve made with this kit! See you soon!
