In my mind, the clouds are literally showering hearts… I just love how quick this fun card came together! I stamped the clouds from the adorable Spring Showers stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink in my Stamp Platform so I’d get a beautiful crisp stamped image.
I then colored the clouds very simply with BV0000, BV01, and the Colorless Blender copic markers. I fussy cut the clouds and set them aside. I trimmed my patterned paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and then lined up my stitched rectangle die in the center securing it with some purple tape. I ran it through my Big Shot and then mat the rainbow polka dot hearts paper on a 3-3/8 x 4-5/8″ piece of white card stock. I was going to adhere that layer back onto the rainbow polka dot hearts paper, but when I flipped it over I saw the ombre rainbow paper side and decided to use this side.
I adhered the papers to the card using a liquid glue and then stamped the sentiment. I used a smaller rectangle die to die cut the sentiment and then trimmed off the extra from the left side. I adhered the sentiment to the card and then adhered the clouds.
I just love how sweet this card turned out and it was really so quick to make!! Be sure to stop by the SFL shop and see all the fabulous Sunny Studio Stamps products available… so many wonderful stamps, dies and papers!!
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images super quick with Copic Markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out, I used the dies to cut out ric rac and border the back panel, I cut a circle using a stitched circle die, and then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, added a few enamel dots and added just a little of the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the puppy’s bow!
Hello, it’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a super cute card featuring several products from Sunny Studio Stamps’ newest release. You can find these products at Scrappingforless.com.
I used the Cruising Critters stamp set, the Spring Sunburst 6×6 paper pad and the Heartstring Border Dies to create my card. After stamping my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink I colored the image with my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers (Amazon). I die cut a heart border and mounted the image panel onto the striped pattern paper with Gina K Designs Foam Adhesive. The body of the vehicle was stamped on pattern paper and fussy cut so that I could paper piece it in place.
I used a Molotow Chrome Marker (Amazon) to color in the shiny chrome parts of the vehicle like the fenders on the wheel wells and the hub caps.
The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
We have a couple of pinks, along with white, red, and even a reddish brown. I think these colors work perfectly for a Valentine’s Color Challenge! I hope you do too and that you can find some time to play along with us in the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share group on Facebook.
So… I thought it would be fun to use the Winter Fairies stamp set for a Valentine’s card… kind of show how versatile this set can be!! It doesn’t have to be just for a wintry card or Christmas card… the sweet fairies combined with some Valentine’s colors, stenciled hearts, and a perfect sentiment – BAM! I have a sweet Valentine’s card ready for my stash!
To start, I stamped the fairy with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto white card stock and colored her in with the following copic markers:
I then fussy cut her out (cutting off the star at the top of her wand) and cleaned up the edges with a Memento Tuxedo black marker. I set the fairy aside and grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. I ink smooshed some Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks. I used my Heat Tool to dry the panel and then applied some Scarlet Glitter Glaze from Brutus Monroe with a spatula over the Tim Holtz Hearts Mini Layering Stencil Set #6. I also applied some of the same glaze over the stencil onto a scrap piece of white card stock. I set it aside to dry.
While that was drying, I realized that I had forgotten about the brown in the color combination… oops! I mean, sure there’s a bit in her hair, but I wanted it in the background too so once the glitter glaze was dry I smooshed some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks on the panel. I also used my water pen to move the ink around a bit since the raised glittery hearts seemed to resist the ink. I’ll be honest… at this point, I tossed the panel in the trash. I did not like how it turned out. So I made another one… and somehow that one was worse!! Lol… I pulled the first panel out of the trash and gave it another look and decided it wasn’t terrible. I left both panels on my desk and called it a day… the next morning, I decided to go with the first panel. Fresh eyes can give you that new perspective on your creations!! I actually like the extra dimension the brown ink smooshes give to the card!
I trimmed down my panel to 3-7/8 x 5-1/8″ and adhered it to a Real Red mat measuring 4 x 5-1/4″. I then adhered that to a Passionate Pink card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and adhered the entire card front to a white card base. I popped up the fairy using foam squares and then popped up the fussy cut glitter glazed heart that I had created on the scrap piece of white card stock to take the place of the star on the fairies wand. To finish off the card, I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the Sentiments of the Heart stamp set that was included in the Banana Split subscription of the December 2019 Sending Love card kit with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed an ultra fine white embossing powder. I die cut the sentiment with my go-to banners die and popped it up on the card. I’m so happy with how this card turned out! I hope you like it too!

I love making all different types of cards my favorite is interactive cards, but sometimes I like to make a few all at one time to have on hand, especially masculine cards and I thought this kit was perfect for that.
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a birthday card featuring the brand new January Flavor of the Month Card Kit “All About the Boys” that was just released this past Saturday.
This kit is wonderful for making cards for the fellas in our lives. Whether they like kings and crowns or tools or gnomes and buffalo plaid they are surely going to love any card you’ve made with this kit.

Today I used the stencil from the Banana Split level to make my background with Distress Oxide Inks and blending brushes. I then stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and layered it on colored cardstock.
Hello! It’s Beth and I’m back again with another guest design project for the SFL Winter Fairy Bundle! Today I made a sweet little birthday shaker card.
I’m using the sleeping fairy on the moon from the Winter Fairies stamp set and I colored her up with Copic markers in shades of pink. I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Diamond to the fur on her hat and clear Wink of Stella on her wings. I also added some Glossy Accents to the cloud for some added dimension.
I chose the light pink star patterned paper from the Winter in Pink paper pack as the mat for my A2 card. I used my Silhouette to cut a scalloped square frame for my shaker element and then used a scrap of the pink stripe paper for the back of the shaker frame, to add a brighter pop of color. I stamped the sentiment “Have a fairy” from the Winter Fairy House stamp set directly onto the pink striped paper, so you can see it through my shaker window. I filled the shaker with some Martha Stewart Sugar Cube stars and sequins left from an old Flavor of the Month kit. And, I added my sleeping fairy to the bottom corner of the shaker window.
For the rest of my sentiment, I chose the “Happy Birthday” from the Winter Fairies stamp set and heat embossed it in black. I added some little yellow stars at the bottom to embellish my sentiment and added some clear Wink of Stella to them for some additional sparkle.
