Hello, it’s Stacy up on the Scrapping for Less blog today with a sneak peek of the new May Flavor of the Month Card Kit that is to be revealed this Saturday, May 25th.
I used items from the Banana Split extra pack of goodies. I colored in the embossed panel with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set included in the Banana Split goodie pack. A little bit of hot pink glitter from the same goodie pack added that bit of sparkle the otherwise simple card needed.
I can’t wait for you to see the card kit this month. To insure you have a kit with your name on it be sure to sign up for a subscription prior to the reveal.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you this Saturday!
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!
Crystal here with a trio of cards using Lawn Fawn’s Lovable Legends stamp set! I thought it might be fun to share a trio of cards starting with a simple design and then building from that design to a slightly more involved card design.
My first card started with a simple stenciled background using the Echo Park Good Vibes Stripe stencil along with the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink that I blended over the stencil. Once my background was done, I die cut it with a wonky rectangle die. I then cut a 1″ strip of the beautiful Watercolor Foil paper from Pink & Main and fussy cut the little flag end on one side. I adhered it to the panel and then trimmed off the excess.
I stamped the super cute sentiment directly on the panel and then adhered the entire panel to a white card base. I stamped the bigfoot character three times and decided for my card design… he’d be a cute yeti so I colored him very simply with the following Copic markers ~ N0, N1, N2, B0000, B00, Colorless Blender. I fussy cut my cute yeti and popped him up on the card.
So that is my first card design… pretty simple, right?! But still adorable!!
For my next card, to add a little somethin’ somethin’ and bring it up a step from simple, I decided to blend the background using distress oxide inks. I used Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I then blended Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink over the same Good Vibes Stripe stencil that I used on the first card. I love the subtle stripes it made on the background! I die cut the panel with the same wonky rectangle die and adhered it directly on a white card base. I adhered a strip of the Watercolor Foil paper just like the first card, but this time I stamped the sentiments on scraps of white card stock. I used a banner die to cut out the ‘Have An’ sentiment and fussy cut the ‘Unbelievable Birthday’. I adhered both sentiments directly to the card. I popped up the cute yeti and to finish off this card I added a couple of trees that I stamped from the same set using green inks in my stash. I love how the Watercolor Foil paper breaks up the strips of the background and the foil in the paper adds a pretty shine for interest.
Are you ready for the third and final card… ?!
Whatcha think?! I’m a little partial to the background on this one because I love splatter!! I created the background the very same as the second card, but I added water and white acrylic paint splatters. I adhered the strip of Watercolor Foil paper and the top sentiment directly to the card, but I popped up the bottom sentiment using foam tape. I adhered more trees to surround Mr. Yeti… huh, just decided to name him… LOL! I also popped up the two trees on the far right. My final touch to finish this card was to add some random dots to the trees using a white gel pen… almost like snow falling on the trees from the splatter in the background.
Here’s a picture showing all of the cards together. I had a bunch of fun making these cards to share with you… I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing the different steps in adding interest and dimension to the cards! I hope this inspires you to try different levels of cardmaking!!
One of my favorite things about Spring is flowers! I love when it is time to plant flowers in my yard. Now, I HATE yard work but planting flowers that is another story! Love doing that!
Today, I decided to bring you a card that just screams SPRING! Did you hear it? Lot’s of lovely spring products used on this card.

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here on my new blog and ready to get Kraken. using this great stamp set by Newton’s Nook, and other supplies from Scrapping For Less, I had some fun crafty time putting this together for you to enjoy.
Using the Amalgam Ink I stamped out the images of the Kraken, Bottle and Scroll. Using my Scan n Cut I cut the images and then the bottle again from a card panel.
Using the water layers from the Shadowbox Ocean Set and stitched rectangle dies I cut the panel to the exact size I wanted and then started playing with my Oxides.
First I used Salty Ocean and Broken China to blend on the bottom of the main panel, and the 3 water layers. I the varied with the Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral to create the sunrise. Once satisfied with the blend, I grabbed my Radiating Rays Stencil and the Squeezed Lemonade again to get those rays just right.
I used Nuvo liquid clue and adhered a panel of acetate to the inside of the top panel, I then adhered one of the water layers. I added some foam tape around the sides and put in some sequins from my stash. I had already added the scroll with the “Let’s Get Kraken” sentiment to the panel of my cardbase, so that it would show through when the main panel was attached. Once the top panel was added to the base with the shaker intact, I was able to add the 2nd and 3rd water layers along with the Kraken in its rightful place among the waves. After adding a few water drops to activate the Oxides, my card was complete.
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!
I die cut the Watercolor Foil papers and adhered them to a white card base. I then fussy cut Unicorn Marci and set her aside. I die cut some clouds that I lightly sponged with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink but any blue oxide ink would work. There happens to be this ink in the shop —> Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink… which would work just as well when lightly sponged on.
I adhered the die cut clouds with liquid glue so I could adjust them quickly before they set. I popped up my fussy cut Unicorn Marci with foam tape. I then stamped the cute sentiment on white card stock with Gina K Designs Amalgam black ink, fussy cut a flag, and then popped it up on the card. I just love that beautiful shine from the foil in the Watercolor Foil papers! So pretty! I sure hope you’ve enjoyed my card!
