I stamped and colored the little yeti holding the string of lights from the Beast Friends stamp set with my Copics. My favorite way to color these guys is with light Neutral Gray Copic markers and skin tones for his face and ears. I grabbed some Distress Inks and started blending ink onto a background panel. I only used Crushed Olive, but because I didn’t clean off my blender brush the inside blending is a different shade of green. I quite like it when I stumble upon happy accidents!
Once the ink blended background was completely dry I white heat embossed the three trees from the Beast Friends stamp set repeatedly across my card. I was going to leave it this way, but I decided to add a bit of shine with a gold ink from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolor palette. I’m so glad I did! To match the gold watercoloring I heat embossed a gold sentiment onto a strip, popped up my sentiment and yeti, and added some gold glittery enamel dots around the card.
I love how the gold and green play off each other, don’t you?! Thanks for joining me! I hope you’re inspired to break out your Christmas supplies and get crafty!
Christmas is in full swing at Scrapping for Less! And it truly will be here before you know it!
I’m a lover of classic Christmas colors! – red, green, gold! Gorgeous! I ink blended some Candied Apple Distress Ink onto a piece of cardstock keeping the ink darker towards the center and lighter towards the outside. I used a slightly darker color of ink – Fired Brick – and stenciled the Echo Park Magical Snowfall Stencil over the ink blending and die cut the panel with a stitched circle die. I thought the background needed something more, so I flicked on some metallic gold watercolor.
I super love the Bundled Up stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps because you can build your own penguin! I stamped the penguin and a bunch of accessories and colored them with classic Christmas colored Copic markers and trimmed them out with my scissors and added them to my die cut circle and stamped a sentiment under the penguin. I wanted to add a little more gold to my card, so I die cut a foiled piece of cardstock with a slightly larger die cut circle and added it to a circle card base. Check out the video above to see how I made that!
This card has so much shine! And I love the subtle snowflakes in the background! Thanks for stopping by!
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!
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! My family spent this past week at the lake, so it’s super fitting that this month’s theme from Scrapping for Less is camping and outdoors!
The Winston’s Lake House stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs is SO cute! There are so many cute scene building stamps! I almost went with a lake scene – but the little bear and cabin images just spoke to me!
This card came together super quickly with just a bit of masking! I stamped my sentiment first and then the bear image. When masking it’s important to remember to stamp whatever image you want to be in front first! I stamped the bear image onto masking paper and cut it out with scissors and placed it over my original stamped image and stamped my lake house. When I removed the masking paper it looks like the lake house is set behind the little bear! I used my Spectrum Noir Triblend markers to color them in.
I didn’t to much to embellish the card – just some gems and clear glitter! Check out my video below!
Hey, there! It’s Lynnea! I’m so excited about this month’s theme from Scrapping for Less – Under the Stars! I created a cute little critter campfire scene! And scroll down to see the video!
I this this little scene is super cute, don’t you?! I started by cutting down some patterned papers from the Photoplay Campfire & Lakeside 6 x 6 patterned paper pad for my background. I fell in LOVE with the star background paper as soon as I saw it! And I love using patterns as grass. I think it makes things super fun! I stamped and colored the critters from the Lawn Fawn Love You S’more stamp set. I also stamped a bunch of trees for my background!
Once I had everything cut out I started assembling my card. I tucked the trees behind the patterned paper foreground and popped up my campfire and critters. I stamped my sentiment with brown ink and trimmed the ends to banner edges.
A bit of glitter over my critters and randomly in the starry background finished off my card! I hope you enjoy the video!
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a few cards using the Pink & Main “Turtley Amazing” stamp set. Be sure to check out the video for all the details HERE!
I colored the images on the last two cards with Studio 71 by Darice alcohol markers. I had heard good reviews on them and decided to pick up a set with 48 markers. Check out the video for my thoughts.
The first card is an A2 size 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 and I used “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink to create the background on a 4 in. square piece of white cardstock. For the stamping I used Hero Arts Charcoal ink and the Gina K “Wreath Builder“. I stamped the sentiment with Brutus Monroe embossing ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I placed the panel on a black card base and finished it off with a few sequins, clear enamel dots, Ranger “Glossy Accents” on the turtle shells, and a Sakura “Black Glaze Pen” on the turtles eyes.
My second card is a 4 1/2 square card. I used all of the small images with the wreath builder to create the background on a 4 in piece of white cardstock. The inks I used were Hero Arts Mulled Wine, Moss, Soft Cantaloupe, and Lawn Fawn Merman. I added two of the turtles I colored. For the card base and sentiment strip I used a burnt orange piece of card stock from my stash. I stamped the sentiment with VeraFine Onyx Black ink and I finished the card by adding glossy accents to the turtle shells and for the eyes the glaze pen.
My final card I used the Scrapping for Less “Water Patterns” 6X6 paper pad to create a background along with a piece of kraft cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and I heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I placed the colored images around the background and finished it with glossy accents to the turtle shells, a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on the small images and for the eyes the glaze pen.
I stamped and colored some images from the Critters Ever After stamp set with my alcohol markers. One thing I’m trying to do lately is leave more neutral colored areas. I struggle with coloring because I use too many colors. I’ve been loving white lately, so I kept lots of white in my colored images. I thought the Pretty Little Rainbows papers from the May 2019 Flavor of the Month kit were so gorgeous that I bought extras! I used one of my favorites for my background.
I added some cloud die cuts and added my images to my card front. Simple – but I love how the rainbow background shines with the white colored images! Watch my process video below!
