Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with more tea-rrific inspiration using the sweet Tea Party Collection from the It’s All About the Girls card kit! This collection is especially endearing for me because my Mom was a tea drinker and her favorite color was purple. So while I created with this collection she was in the forefront of my mind.
With that said, it’s no surprise that a couple of the cards I made are cards that could be for Mother’s Day. I know it’s a couple months away but it sure doesn’t hurt to have those in your stash, right?!
I used up almost every last scrap of the patterned papers on these four cards. I had a lot of fun mix matching the patterned papers for each of the cards. I even paper pieced for this first card. Isn’t that tea pot just the cutest with those pink polka dots! Love it! And it works well with all the polka dots in the patterned papers and even the enamel dots play into that design!
I had a couple more of the wood icons left over in my collection so I stamped the cup and saucer with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored it with the following copic markers ~ R81, R83, R85, E51. I kept the tea a light milky color because my Mom liked her tea with a lot of milk. I then fussy cut the cup/saucer and cleaned up the edges of the image with my Memento Tuxedo black marker. I adhered the cup/saucer to the wood icon with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I then adhered the wood icon piece to a Grape Jelly die cut scalloped circle.
My third card is really very simple in the design… I adhered all of the layers on a card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ of Pink Lemonade card stock and then adhered it to a white card base from my stash. I just adhered the sweet little wood icon tea pot to this card, along with the sentiment and was done. Very simple but sweet… I like it!
My last card is my favorite… I love the cute papers and the white embossed sentiment on the Plum Punch card stock. I colored this cup with the same copics as the other cup, but made it a bit darker. I also used BV0000, BV000, BV01 for the saucer. I used N0 and N2 to add some steam and for the ground. A similar design to the first two cards but I really love the way this one turned out!

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.

Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with the last sneak peek of the February 2020 Flavor of the Month card kit called It’s All About the Girls!! Oh my goodness… I was so excited to see this beautiful face stamp when I received my card kit!! I couldn’t wait to ink her up and color!!
When I was looking through the papers in the first collection, I had the idea for this card form in my mind. I trimmed the striped layer of paper down to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″ and ran the rose paper through my big shot with a stitched rectangle die. I adhered the papers together and then wrapped the wide black ribbon around and tied a faux bow… it’s actually just a knot and I trimmed the tails to make it look like a bow. Now, I will mention that the black ribbon is from my stash and not included in the collection. I couldn’t resist… the design called for it! Anywho, I stamped the beautiful image onto white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink (masking the lips) and then I stamped the lips with a light pink dye ink. I then colored the image with the following copic markers:
Skin ~ E000, E00, E21
Hair ~ B41, C3, C5, C7, C9
Lips ~ R81, R83, R85, RV29
I wanted to take the shine on her lips just one more step so I added some glossy accents… Wow! It really made a difference! I love how it turned out! I die cut another piece of white card stock with the Frilly Lace Nested Rectangle die by Gina Marie Designs. I trimmed down the colored image to fit on the die cut piece, fussy cutting around the top of the face and hair and then I adhered it down.
I popped up the main panel with foam squares. To finish off the card, I added a few of the enamel dots included in the collection and then added the sentiment sticker, also included in the collection.
This card design came together quickly using border dies and the pretty grass patterned papers in the Spring Fling paper pack! I die cut the clouds from white card stock and adhered them to the top portion of a piece of blue card stock measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″. I then adhered the die cut grassy hills to the bottom portion of the card. I set that aside and inked up the cute little boy stamp and the kite with Memento Tuxedo black ink.
I colored the stamped images with the following copic markers:
Skin ~ E000, E00, E11
Hair ~ E55, E59
Clothes ~ N0, N1, N5, R000, R14, B91, B95, B97
Kite ~ R000, R14, Y000, Y06
I fussy cut the colored images leaving a little border… giving the images a little more dimension on the card. I adhered the kite to the card and then popped up the boy and sentiment with foam squares. I adhered the entire panel onto a white A2 card base. I love how this turned out! I hope you do too!
So glad you stopped in for a glimpse at Sunny Studio Stamps “A Good Egg” stamp set. This stamp set packs a punch! There are just so many great images to be used to make cards. Great stamp set for Easter but also friendship cards or just telling someone you love what a good egg they are.
Thank you for stopping by to check out the blog. I hope you have some time to take a look around at previous posts as well there are some beautiful cards and projects on the blog.
For my first card I created a castle home for the happy couple. I first ink blended a soft blue and green ink onto the background. I colored the images with Copic markers. Then I added some clouds with a pink lining from the paper pack.
I think pink clouds are so dreamy! When they say every cloud has a silver lining, clouds with a pink lining are one step above that! Lol. I stamped the Happily Ever After sentiment on one of the clouds.
I added the images with foam tape and created a cobble stone walkway using Nuvo Stone Drops. These are so dimensional and dry with a matte finish to look like stones!
This stamp set is so inspiring, I couldn’t resist featuring that cute little frog in the stamp set for ONE MORE card! I chose one of my favorite papers for the background, then added the frog and the Knight in Shining Armor to a circle die cut.
I added some solid paper to the left side of the card, and stamped the sentiment “You’re So Charming” onto one of the blue paper strips.
How many frogs have YOU had to kiss to find your Knight?!
I hope you enjoyed these projects today. I’ve really loved guesting and featuring these products!
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a slimline card featuring the Chickie Baby stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps and Distress Oxide Inks.
I stamped the images on Neenah 80# Classic Crest Smooth Solar White Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers to color them in. I then cut out the images with my Brother Scan n Cut.
I ink blended on a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock with Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks with a blender brush.
I sprinkled some water droplets on the background and dabbed it up with a paper towel to make it look distressed.
Then I stamped some of the grass images with the Twisted Citron. Popping the chicks up on foam squares and gluing the flowers in place finished off the card. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
