I heat embossed with clear Embossing Powder the floral swag after stamping it with Clear Embossing Ink. I trimmed down the panels to 4 in. X 51/4 in. and used a pink card base and a yellow card base from my stash.
I used Distress Oxides and blended them over the card panels. Then sprayed them with some water and blotted them off.
Kim here with one of the sweetest stamp sets from Sunny Studio Stamps, Fall Kiddos. I had so much fun coloring up these little guys and gals. I stamped out all the images using Lawn Fawn ink in jet black which is alcohol marker friendly. Then I got busy coloring with my Copics.
I really thought all of my characters were going to go on the card until I started putting everyone in place and realized that just wouldn’t work unless I made them stand on each other and they needed room to jump and throw leaves! I picked out a few for this card and set my other little kiddos aside for another time. Once I got knew where I wanted them to go I was able to position my sentiment which I then stamped in Versafine Ink black onyx, used clear embossing powder on and heat set. (I even remembered to use powder buddy so the embossing powder wouldn’t stick where I didn’t want it, go me!)
It needed one more thing so I got out the fluffy cloud dies from Sunny Studio Stamps, cut out some clouds, inked them up just a bit with tumbled glass distress oxide ink and my sky came together. Added some bling with a Spectrum Noir sparkle marker in clear and adhered it to a card base using Lawn Fawn glue tube.
I just love the sentiment on this card from the Fall Kiddos stamp set and completely agree that playing is NEVER wasted time.
Thank you so much for stopping in and spending some time with us today. I hope you are able to find some time to play today.
It’s almost time!!! All week we over here at Scrapping For Less we have been getting wild with the Flavor of the Month card kit for August. I am so excited to see what everyone else has created and to see how all of you respond to this month’s kit!
For the sneak peek I grabbed some ingredients from collection four and one of the stamps from that same collection. Added my favorite sentiment from the Banana Split Stamp set and the whole card came together.
I colored the image in with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers, (I wish I could get the sparkle to show up in the pics as nicely as it does in real life!) except for the yellow color I used my Wink of Stella.
As I was finishing up with glueing everything down with Lawn Fawn’s glue tube I realized that I had glued the entire card upside down. Gah! I kind of laughed at myself and then began to work on fixing it so I just trimmed off the edges and then glued the card front down to a new card correctly this time!

I really had so much fun with this project. I have had the reveal wheel since it first came out, and have not used it, just waiting for the right time, and this was exactly the project I was waiting for.
First using white cardstock I cut the card base, the wheel heart frame and the little arrow. I cut the night sky panel using the square reveal wheel die, and heat embossed using Gold embossing powder the Wish and the Heart of Stars.
I stamped and cut the two little critters and colored them with alcohol markers, and using some scraps from the paper pad decided to make the grassy panel and then a blanket for the critters to sit upon.
After figuring out how I wanted the sentiment in the window I stamped the open stars, then Upon, closed stars then A Star and heat embossed them. It does appear I need to use a little more of that embossing buddy to get a cleaner embossing.
I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I have enjoyed bringing it to you.
Have a great day and see ya back next week with my FOTM Sneak Peek project, and I had a lot of fun with it as well. Let me tell you, each month the kits are getting better and better and I am really excited about this one.

Day 1 of the Sneak Peeks for the brand spanking, glimmering, festive, dazzling, sparkling, warm and fuzzy October Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I can not wait for you to see this card in all of it’s splendid glory this coming Saturday, October 27th at Midnight EST. You’re certainly going to gaga over it just as I did when I got mine in my pudgy little fingers. Teresa and Kim continue to out do themselves month after month.
The exclusive stamp sets that they design themselves or collaborate with some of our favorite companies make this kit so extra special and unlike any other card kits out there. They tend to sell out quickly, so if you want to guarantee there’s a kit with your name on it, click on this Flavor of the Month button to go sign up for a subscription (and save you some extra money in the process).
