Hello Everyone and Happy Monday! Today I made this colorful card using the the Fairy House Stamp Set by SFL.
I then stamped the Fairy House with a Copic friendly ink and colored the image with Copic markers. I fussy cut the image and added it to my card with foam adhesive. I chose a sentiment from the stamp set and stamped that to the upper left from the house.
To finish the card I added Diamond Stickles to the snow on the fairy house and then 3 White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops to the right of the sentiment.
Thanks So Much for stopping by today. If you’re interested in the First SFL Release CLICK HERE.
Hey, everyone! It’s Christmas All Year Long at Scrapping for Less and I have some fun inspiration for you using the My Favorite Things Beast Friend stamp set. This was one of my first stamp sets from My Favorite Things and it’s still one of my favorites!
I stamped and colored the little yeti holding the string of lights from the Beast Friends stamp set with my Copics. My favorite way to color these guys is with light Neutral Gray Copic markers and skin tones for his face and ears. I grabbed some Distress Inks and started blending ink onto a background panel. I only used Crushed Olive, but because I didn’t clean off my blender brush the inside blending is a different shade of green. I quite like it when I stumble upon happy accidents!
Once the ink blended background was completely dry I white heat embossed the three trees from the Beast Friends stamp set repeatedly across my card. I was going to leave it this way, but I decided to add a bit of shine with a gold ink from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolor palette. I’m so glad I did! To match the gold watercoloring I heat embossed a gold sentiment onto a strip, popped up my sentiment and yeti, and added some gold glittery enamel dots around the card.
I love how the gold and green play off each other, don’t you?! Thanks for joining me! I hope you’re inspired to break out your Christmas supplies and get crafty!
Christmas is in full swing at Scrapping for Less! And it truly will be here before you know it!
I’m a lover of classic Christmas colors! – red, green, gold! Gorgeous! I ink blended some Candied Apple Distress Ink onto a piece of cardstock keeping the ink darker towards the center and lighter towards the outside. I used a slightly darker color of ink – Fired Brick – and stenciled the Echo Park Magical Snowfall Stencil over the ink blending and die cut the panel with a stitched circle die. I thought the background needed something more, so I flicked on some metallic gold watercolor.
I super love the Bundled Up stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps because you can build your own penguin! I stamped the penguin and a bunch of accessories and colored them with classic Christmas colored Copic markers and trimmed them out with my scissors and added them to my die cut circle and stamped a sentiment under the penguin. I wanted to add a little more gold to my card, so I die cut a foiled piece of cardstock with a slightly larger die cut circle and added it to a circle card base. Check out the video above to see how I made that!
This card has so much shine! And I love the subtle snowflakes in the background! Thanks for stopping by!
Good Morning and Happy Thursday! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you TWO different cards using Newton’s Nook Designs “Vitamin Sea” stamp set & “Seashells” stencil and Stampendous “Cling Jellyfish” stamp !
Here is what I created:
These first 6 cards were inspired by video that Jennifer McGuire posted about a week ago. I used my Gina K 3.5”x 3.5” wreath builder template with the Ranger Distress Oxide inks and stenciled the corners of the cards. Next, I cut paper 3.75”x 3.75” and shaded the outside edges. Lastly, I cut 4”x 8” cardstock for my card base. I LOVE this technique that Jennifer shared with us in her video. I am looking forward to using this technique in the future.
Here is what I used:
Newton’s Nook Designs – “Vitamin Sea” stamp set
Newton’s Nook Designs – “Seashells” stencil
Ranger – Distress Oxide “Tumbled Glass” ink
Ranger – Distress Oxide “Carved Pumpkin” ink
Ranger Distress Ink – “Peeled Paint”, “Stormy Sky”, “Tea Dye”, & “Seedless Preserves”
Nuvo Glitter Drops – “White Blizzard”
Gina K “Wreath Builder” template
My next card I struggled with. I just wasn’t sure how I was going to put it together. I started by stamping out the “Cling Jellyfish” from Stampendous and using my Scan n’ Cut to cut it out. I then took the “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide ink and shaded the whole the jellyfish. Then, I took the “Carved Pumpkin” and pressed the ink pad into an acrylic block to use as a paint pallet. I then painted the jelly fish in “Carved Pumpkin” and highlighted the circles with the “White Blizzard” Nuvo Glitter Drops. I then cut a card base 4”x 5.25” and “double stamped or 2nd generation stamping” the jellyfish (inking the image and stamping once on scrap paper and then stamping a second time on the card base). Lastly, I cut a card base 4.25”x 5.5” and shaded with the “Carved Pumpkin” Distress Oxide ink. Once all of this was done, I used foam squares to pop the jelly fish and assembled the card.
Here is what I created:
Hello Everyone! Christine with Pattercrafts here with a set of 3×3 cards featuring the “Vitamin Sea” stamp set from Newton’s Nook!
Today I made a set of six 3″x3″ cards. The card bases were made with colored cardstock cut to 6 inches x 3 inches and scored at 3 inches.
The front panels: I cut watercolor cardstock to 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″. I found coordinating distress ink to match my card bases and used the distress ink to stamp the image. Once all the front panels were stamped, I went back in with the distress ink and went over the entire panel – keeping a very light hand over the stamped image.
To finish the cards I used a variety of Nuvo Drops!
Thank You So Much for joining me today. I hope you enjoy and get inspired.

Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog. For the month of June we will be focusing on “Under the Sea” as our theme.
Today I have a card I made using a stamp set by Picket Fence called “I am a Mermaid”. I die cut the card with the Art Impressions Flip Card Die. The papers are from Scrapberry’s “Ocean Enchantment” collection. I colored the images in with my Copic Markers (colors listed below). Full list of products used are posted at the end of this post.
This card was so much fun to make. I think she came out very pretty. I hope you think so too. Leave a comment below if you’ve ever taken an ocean or beach vacation and to where.
Thanks for visiting,

Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a few cards I made using the Pink and Main “Turtley Awesome” stamp set! I made some fun backgrounds from three embossing folders, a stencil, and “Distress Inks” to use with images from the stamp set. Carta Bella Ogee, Darice, and Tim Holtz The images are stamped with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiments with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and finished off the cards with Glossy Accents, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, Nuvo Dream Drops, and a black gel pen.

Hi! Today I’m showing you two ways to use masking to create an *almost* one layer card! I used the Graduation Boy stamp set from Dreamland Crafts and you can get yours at the Scrapping for Less store!
I started by stamping the boy from the Graduation Boy stamp set onto a piece of watercolor cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I heat embossed it so that I could do some watercoloring with my Sakura Koi watercolor set. Once my watercoloring was done I heat set the paint completely. I used a Versamarker (Versamark ink in pen form) and colored all over the colored image and embossed it with clear powder. I repeated the process again so that I would have more dimension to my clear embossing. This is one of my favorite ways to emboss! There’s no need to fussy cut a mask and no wait for drying time!
I used a piece of Inkadinkado masking paper and sketched a simple hill shape and cut along my sketch line. I used the top piece to mask off the upper portion of my card so that the hill section of my cardstock is exposed. I used two colors of green Distress Ink – dark at the top and lighter at the bottom. Then I dried the ink with my heat gun and added the other portion of my masking paper to the cardstock so that the green hill is covered.
I grabbed the Cloud stencil from Pink & Main and some Distress Ink and created my cloudy background. It’s super easy since I didn’t have to mask off my colored image – I just blended the ink right across my heat embossed image! I used a stitched rectangle die to cut down my panel and adhered it to a card base! You can watch my process video below!
