Kim here from @CardmakingBlond, thank you so much for joining me today on the blog to check out what I came up with using a few Fall ingredients from SFL. I will give the rundown on what was used for this card and also include links to the items as well. Just in case you haven’t heard there is a STORE WIDE 30% OFF SALE GOING ON!
added in some sequins from my stash that I received in a previous Flavor of the Month card kit
added some sparkle to the mug with a Nuvo Aqua shimmer pen
placed a little glossy accents over the coffee in the coffee cup (mine is coffee your’s can be whatever you like)
I am so happy with the way this card came out! All the different patterns and colors are just enough to keep it interesting without overwhelming the stamped image. I hope you are enjoying the Fall season so far! Here in Florida the weather is downright pleasant!
Thanks again for taking a minute to stop by and see what has been going on in my neck of the woods. I hope you take some time for yourself and get some crafting or cardmaking in. Don’t forget the STORE CLOSING sale going on right now!
A fabulous mix of pretty papers and adorable stamps along with a fun sketch makes for some adorable Christmas cards to add to my stash!
Using a white card base for my first card helps the white in the patterned papers to pop on the card… really drawing your eye to all the pretty papers!
I just love this cute Reindeer kid from the stamp set… so fun to color!
I love the mix of kraft, red, and white in these papers… one of my favorite color combos AND perfect for Christmas cards!! I probably shouldn’t have included the tree… it kinda messes with the color scheme but it’s so cute!
I used the following Copic markers for both cards:
Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a cute card using the Picnic Time Collection from the June 2020 A Walk in the Park card kit! I shared my card for the new July Sketch Challenge just a couple of days ago and I got to thinking that when you cut your papers for this sketch you’re left with such angled pieces. I thought maybe it would be fun to share a card using those leftovers. I decided to use the leftover pieces from my card that I shared during the reveal and hop. You can check out that card here… Picnic Time Collection card.
And here is what I came up with for those leftover pieces. Speaking of leftover pieces… I know that this card kit has sold out, but this paper pack is still available separately —> Picnic Time paper pack!!!
I think it turned out pretty cute! What do you think?
And I finally got a chance to ink up that cute ant stamp! He was so much fun to color! I actually have two videos to share for this card… the first video is the Copic coloring of the sweet Picnic Time Ant!
And the second video is the fussy cutting and assembling of the card.
I thought I’d split these up so they’d be shorter and maybe if you’re more interested in the coloring you can watch that or if you’d rather just see the fussy cutting and assembling ~ you can check that out! Well, that’s it for me today!
My first card is my absolute favorite! I love the colors and the simple design… those beautiful lemon blossoms are just the right touch for such a delicate combination of papers!
I used the following Copic Markers to color the lemon blossoms ~ C00, C1, Y11, Y03, Y13, YR0000, YR01.
I have been itching to make one of these beautiful lemons into a lime and I just had to pair it with this gorgeous green patterned paper. The photo makes my coloring appear to be a bit brighter, but in person it coordinates very nicely. I used the following Copic Markers to color these images:
Lemon ~ Y000, Y11, Y13, YG0000, YG11, G82
Lime ~ YG0000, YG03, YG11, YG63, G82
My third and final card features one of the gorgeous lemon patterned papers in the collection… I love the colors in these papers!! It just screams summer to me! Again, the photo makes my coloring on this one also looks a bit bright, but in person it’s toned down. I used the same Copic markers for this last card but I kept the leaves lighter. You may also see a similarity to the card I created for my sneak peek of the Let’s Encourage One Another card kit… I flipped the stitched die cut card stock pieces for a different design. You can check out my sneak peek card here… Easy Peasy Sneak Peek card.
Here’s a video sharing the coloring of the lemon from my second card and the finishing touches of assembling these cards. I hope you’ll check it out!!

Hey there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a couple sweet CAS cards using the fabulous City Streets and Country Roads card kit and stencils!! I layered a shape stencil with the city skyline portion of the stencil included in the Banana Split subscription to create these fun cards.
My first card was created using the Scalloped Circle Masquerade stencil from Heffy Doodle. I started by blending Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the top portion of the scalloped circle. I then blended some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink on the bottom portion. Then I placed the city skyline stencil over top of the scalloped circle stencil and secured it with some purple tape. I also covered the words underneath the skyline on the stencil with some purple tape. I then blended some Black Soot Distress Oxide ink lightly over the stencil for my base color and using a post it note I added some dimension to the buildings blending from the bottom right edge and up.
I stamped the sentiment from the Your Best Life stamp set from Collection Two of the card kit with Memento Tuxedo black ink. And then I stamped the girl from the same stamp set onto a scrap of white card stock. If you remember my card from the reveal a couple of weeks ago, I’ve used a very similar color combo on this girl. And I’ll have a video of my coloring to share with you tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s a list of the Copic markers that I used to color this image:
And I did the same layered stencils technique to make my second card. This time I used the super girl stamp from the Super Host stamp set in Collection One along with a star stencil that I created myself by die cutting a piece of card stock with a star die.
I used the following Copic markers to color up this sweet super girl:
Here’s a video showing the Layered Stencils technique I used for these adorable CAS cards!
I sure hope you’ve enjoyed the cards I’ve shared today! The April 2020 card kit is sold out but you can subscribe now so you don’t miss out on the May 2020 card kit… and let me just tell you, you DO NOT want to miss this next kit!!! It’s SO adorable… just saying!!
I seriously LOVE each of the collections this month… Gorgeous!! But the Banana Split subscriptionthis month has that extra bit of crafty goodness that just tops the cake!! How absolutely stunning is that camera with the dainty flowers and leaves…?!? I just HAD to use it for my sneak peek! I die cut it from the Neenah 110 lb. Classic Crest Smooth Solar White card stock included in the kit and colored it using copic markers that coordinated with the gorgeous papers included in the Country Roads collection:
Flowers ~ R0000, R14, R56
Leaves ~ Y11, Y13, Y15, E41, YG91, YG93
Camera ~ N0, N2, N4, N6
I colored most of the pieces while keeping the die cuts intact, but some of the camera pieces were so small I took them out and colored them. I then adhered the entire die cut piece to a piece of white copy paper and fussy cut it around the edges.
I trimmed the beautiful patterned papers and adhered them together. I then wrapped a pretty yellow ribbon from another collection around the layers and adhered the panel to a white card base from my stash. I then die cut a piece of white card stock with the Stitched Arch STAX die… adding this piece helped the gorgeous camera to pop on the card. I stamped the empowering sentiment from Your Best Life stamp set in Collection Two with VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink and die cut it with a banner die. I added a tiny piece of patterned paper to the edge of that sentiment and then popped it up on the card. To finish off the card, I added a few of the black sequins included in the Banana Split subscription. So… I used three of the collections and a couple of elements from the Banana Split to make this beautiful card!! I am telling you this kit is A MUST HAVE!!! Go subscribe here —> City Streets and Country Roads Card Kit!!

Let’s check out Sketch Challenge #4…
A fun little sketch to get you inspired! Now, let’s check out the card I created using this fun sketch along with the adorable All Tucked In stamp set by My Favorite Things… available in the SFL shop!
I paired this sweet stamp set with the Wood You Be Mine papers by SFL… these sweet Valentine’s themed papers don’t have to be just for Valentine’s!! I think they are wonderful with this sweet stamp set and I was able to pull the colors from the plaid papers to color up the images in my main panel.
I die cut the panel with Stitched Rectangle STAX dies from My Favorite Things. I trimmed down the plaid patterned paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and adhered it to a white card base. I adhered the wood grain patterned paper that I trimmed down to 4 x 5-1/4″. I then trimmed down the chevron patterned paper to 2-3/4 x 4-5/8″ and adhered it to the top portion of the main panel. I punched out a couple flags from the patterned papers and then trimmed another flag from a scrap of paper. I adhered those to the back of the main panel. I then popped up the main panel with foam squares. The sentiments from the All Tucked In stamp set didn’t work for the idea I had in mind for this card so I went searching through my stamps and I found this cute little Get Well Soon sentiment in the Cup of Tea stamp set also from My Favorite Things. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then trimmed it down and mat it with a little piece of patterned paper. And then I realized that it didn’t quite work with the sketch since I turned the sketch for my card… so I just decided to go with it and I adhered it to the bottom left corner of the main panel and called this card done!
Here’s one more look at the card… I just love how this turned out! I hope that you do too!
This challenge will run from today, March 1st and will end March 31st at 11:59pm EST. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, April 1st in the challenge album. Please use #sflsketchchallenge4 in any social media posts when playing along with the challenge.

I went a little crazy with all the layers of cute papers from the Spring Fling paper pack… but how could I not?! These papers are too cute!! This fun sketch is the current Mojo Monday sketch over at the Poetic Artistry blog. I love to check out the sketch blogs for inspiration!
I stamped the sweet girl holding the flower from the Spring Showers stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink on white card stock and then again on a post it note to mask my image. I blended a little Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks over the masked image. You may notice that the color seems a little smudged… that’s because I forgot to heat set the black ink. I still make mistakes after twenty plus years of cardmaking… lol! Anywho, it still looks okay so I removed the mask and colored the image with the following copic markers:
Skin ~ E000, E00, E21
Hair ~ Y21, YR12, YR14
Clothes ~ BV0000, BV01
Hair Clip/Flower ~ R81, R85, Y06, Y15
I adhered all the layers together, wrapping the cluster of layers with a little white baker’s twine. I then adhered the layers to the purple flower layer that I had adhered to a white card base. I popped up the main image and the sentiment with some foam squares to finish off this card. I think it turned out pretty cute… what do you think?
While I was playing with the papers and stamps making the first card, I had a fun idea for this second card. I had run across this sketch on the CAS(E) this Sketch blog and thought it would be cute to feature this adorable little girl playing in the rain. I stamped the girl and umbrella with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then colored them in with the following copic markers:
Skin/Mouth ~ E000, E00, E21, R14, N4
Hair ~ E35, E37
Clothes ~ C00, C1, R81, R83, R85
Umbrella ~ R81, R83, R85, BV0000, BV01
I created the background by stamping the Rain Showers stamp twice on a piece of white card stock with VersaMark watermark ink and then I heat embossed an ultra fine clear embossing powder. I then blended the Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Oxide inks to create my sky and ground. I die cut the background with a circle die and then mat it with a scalloped circle that I had die cut from another piece of white card stock.
I couldn’t find quite the right blue card stock for my card base so I cut one of the papers from the Spring Fling paper pack. Even though it’s mostly covered by the next layer of papers… I wanted that blue layer to help it all pop. I then adhered the three strips of patterned paper to a white piece of card stock measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″. I adhered that layer to the card and then popped up the main image with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and then mat it on the same blue patterned paper I used on the base. To finish off the card, I added a few Sea Breeze Jewel drops… I like the translucent look to these drops.
