Kim from Cardmaking Blonde coming to you today with one of the cutest little sunbathers I’ve ever seen! SFL’s newest release is Summer Floaties! This release has a stamp set and paper pad and they go perfectly together. Of course they can be used separately but why would you want to?
While making this card I chose the watermelon paper because the little cutie is holding a slice of watermelon. The pool water you see is also from the paper pad and I used a pool die to cut out the shape. To create the border around the pool I used Nuvo Glitter Drops. The little cutie on her flamingo floatie is colored with Copic markers. She’s stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink so her features would be a bit softer. Heat embossed the sentiment with white detail embossing powder after prepping with some powder and using VersaMark.
This release is in limited supply so grab yours before they’re gone! Thank you so much for checking out the blog today and I hope you are in the middle of making a great Summer for you and your loved ones.
Hi you all! Okay, okay, okay. Are you ready? I’m gonna gush a bit about the stamp I got to use to make my sneak peek card so brace yourselves. Have you ever looked at something and thought “Oh, yes that is perfect!” Well that is exactly how I felt when I saw this collection. From the stamp, the patterned paper, down to the embellishments in the collection each item just made me more excited to start playing! I could go on and on but I am sure you have other things to do today so here is what I did with this collection and a little sneak peek for what is coming this week:
using Lawn Fawn jet black ink I stamped the image from LDRS Christmas Post onto Neenah 80lb cardstock (I’m finding that my Copics don’t bleed as much with this weight of paper)
using Copic markers I colored the image
using Frosted Lace Stickles I filled in the white of her hooded shawl and the snow. I also covered the snowflakes with it as well. (I used Frosted Lace because I wanted something that would dry more white and less clear but still be very sparkly.) If you have Nuvo drops then you would want to use White Blizzard
using the patterned paper from the kit I decided that I would make a square card (a lot of Christmas cards I hand out rather than mail so this will definitely be one, but you can always make your own envelope if you need to mail it. I just could NOT bring myself to cut down that scene. The card front base is 5.5″ x 5.5″ (keep in mind you’ll want to double that when you make your card base so that it can be folded in half) the next sheet is 5″ x 5″ then the Merry Christmas sheet is 4.75″ x 4.75″ and the sheet the image is stamped on is 4.25″ x 4.25″
also in the kit was the little wooden embellishment that glued down on the bottom right hand corner with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I colored it in with Nuvo drops in woodland green and ruby slippers for the berries.
another embellishment in the kit were some heart stickers so I added a white little heart to the mailbox
I hope you enjoy this sneak peek! I had so much fun making this card and I cannot WAIT to give it away! Thank you for stopping in today and I hope you make it back for a bit each day to catch a glimpse of the other sneak peeks coming in for you! Also, join us next Saturday, November 30th for the blog hop.
Hi Teresa here today, I have fallen in love with this kit!!! Cannot wait to show you the rest of what I have made. For my sneak peek today I used the Mini Collection which contains an exclusive stamp set created for Scrapping for Less by Your Next Stamp. We also have their awesome paper collection called “Sweet Baby.” I have created a sweet card to stash away when I next need a baby girl card! Flavor of the Month card kits are a great way to get on top of creating cards to have in your stash for that unexpected celebration!
I used the following supplies that are available now:
Make sure you head back here Friday evening March 26th at midnight for the reveal of this month’s Flavor of the Month kit “Let’s Celebrate” Remember if you would like to subscribe you will need to do that before 10PM Friday evening to receive a March kit as your beginning month’s kit for your subscription.
With this set alone you can create cards that celebrate Fall, Christmas, Winter, even Valentine’s Day. You can make a thank you card, a friend card, or a card for your love. I chose to make a card that doesn’t really need a category because I didn’t have anyone in mind when creating it. I just wanted to make something cute and Fall looking to add to my stash. I started off a bit intimidated with the thought of having to line up the inside of the mug but I need not be concerned because it was a breeze! I’m going to give you a quick run down of what I did in creating this card:
a bit of bling was added using Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker in clear
I pulled the patterned paper from my stash and I cannot remember the name of the collection but I do know it is from Doodlebug.
So that’s my card for today! I had fun making it while hanging out with the hubby and watching Netflix.Thank you so much for taking a peek at what I’ve been up to and I hope you have a fantastic day! I encourage you to take some time for yourself and make something!
