Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a sweet card using the July 2020 FOTM Card Kit… this time I have one card using the In the Tropics Collection. I absolutely love this palm tree silhouette!! It really makes for great scene cards!
I used some Copic markers to create a light scene around the black palm tree silhouette. I went a little heavy on the oranges in the copic coloring because I knew I was using the yellow and orange papers from the collection and card kit. And I threw in a little purple-pink to work with the flower accent!
I used the following Copic markers for this card ~ B0000, B000, RV10, RV21, Y11, Y15, Y35, YR15.
I finished off the card with a few of the shell sequins. A simple design, but pretty!
There are times that life just gets in the way…recently my hubby and I bought a house and moved. Three weeks ago to be exact and as it so often does, my craft room was the last room in the house to get any attention. Not for lack of love, that’s for sure but no matter what is going on in life we all have to eat, bathe (hopefully frequently, ha!) and sleep so my craft room is still in disarray.
I tell you all of this to make a point…I was able to grab my kit and a few minimal supplies: stamp tool, trimmer, liquid glue and scissors and still come up with a super cute card to give a friend in need of encouragement. Hopefully this little story will encourage you to make some time for yourself even if your supplies are minimal and life is taking over your space and your time.

Thanks so much for coming to the blog today, I hope you find some time for yourself and get to do that thing you love doing!

Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie sharing the August challenge for the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share Facebook group! This month’s challenge is another sketch challenge. We had a great turn out for our July sketch challenge and I’m really hoping that this fun slimline sketch will also make for lots of entries in our August challenge!

Unfortunately, I hurt my back the other day and I am having a slow go at creating right now so I’m sharing the card that I created for the hop. I do hope to share another card at a later time though.
I had a lot of fun blending the skies for this card. I may do a video and share some tips in how I kept the scenes in place throughout each circle. But that will be later in the month. Anywho, this challenge will run from today, August 1st and will end August 31st at 11:59pm EDT. The winner will be announced in the comments of the Challenge album on Tuesday, September 1st.

Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with one last look at the June 2020 Flavor of the Month Card Kit called A Walk in the Park. Today I have a couple cards to share to wrap up my inspiration for the June 2020 card kit.
My first card using the adorable ephemera from the Picnic Time collection and the fun papers. This was such a quick card once I decided on which papers to use together.
My second card for today uses a few different papers from the cute On the Playground collection. I had some longer scraps of the On the Playground papers and thought they would be fun together. I adhered all of them to a lightweight white card stock that measures 4 x 5-1/4″. I actually stamped the slide twice… once on the ombre blue patterned paper and again on a scrap piece of white card stock. After I colored the slide, I fussy cut it and cleaned up the edges with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker. I didn’t fussy cut in between the steps on the slide… I actually just colored that space with a copic marker. I popped up the focal piece with foam squares and tied the green twine around the panel. I then adhered the panel to the white card base with Tombow Mono Multipurpose liquid glue. I added a few sequins to finish off this second card.
I used the following Copic markers to color this card ~ R000, R14, R27, Y000, Y06, Y15, B000.
I hope that you’ve liked my last share for the June 2020 FOTM card kit!! I’ll be back tomorrow with inspiration for the new August 2020 Sketch Challenge for the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share Facebook group.
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma ￼ up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with two inspiration cards featuring the new Mod Dies that are in the July Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
This die set is a staple in your craft room. I designed the die set to work with both the June FOTM Card Kit and the July FOTM Card Kit. The wonky shaped oval is perfect as a lily pad for the frogs in the Pond Life Collection in the June kit.
It is also perfect to use as an island for the palm tree beach stamp from the In the Tropics Collection in the July kit.
Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with one last look at the beautiful new July 2020 Flavor of the Month card kit called In the Tropics!! This kit is full of all things summer… it’s absolutely beautiful!!
I used Collection Four for my sneak peek for today! This silhouette palm tree just screamed for some fun ink blending to make a little a scene! I pulled colors from the papers that I chose from the collection to ink blend in the scene: Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks.
To finish off this pretty simple card, I added a couple of the flowers from the collection along with a sequin for the center. I think it turned out lovely!
Be sure to sign up for your card kit, if you haven’t already! You are not going to want to miss out on this one!! And don’t forget to come back for the reveal and hop tonight at midnight EDT!!
Cardmaking Blonde bringing you a glimpse at one of the stamps in July’s Flavor of the Month card kit along with the sentiments on the stamp set as well. This image was perfect for making a one layer card! Since the majority of the content was so close together I only focused on shading in the larger areas like the ocean and the sky.
