Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life and today I have a Fun Fold Card that’s perfect for using up all the scraps from your July 2020 Flavor of the Month Card Kit!
Be sure to check out the video HERE for the details!
I have always wanted to make one of these cards but always felt intimidated! Let me tell you I couldn’t have been more wrong, this card was super fast and easy to make- 4 score lines and 2 cuts and you’re off! Plus it’s a great way to use up scraps!
Here are the measurements for the card and pieces.
I made 5 cards. I used the SFL Sketch #7, the slimline card sketch to make my first 2 cards.
I embellished the first card with the Tropic Vibes ephemera and the 2nd with the toucan from the Tropic Vibes stamp set. Both sentiments were from this stamp set as well.
I also used the Scrapping for Less Flavor of the Month Card Sketch:
I changed my design from the sketch just a little bit by using less strips and making them thinner. I also used the Scrapping for Less Mod Die set that came in the Banana Split level of the kit. This card turned out to be my favorite!!
I switched to some non-card projects. I made 2 nail file/emory board holders. These would be cute gifts or craft show items! This idea came from the Papered Chef.
I cut the patterned paper to 3.5×6 inches. Then I scored them at 1 inch, 1.25 inches, 2.25 inches and 2.5 inches. Once you fold up the score lines, you just glue the 2 flaps together. Then pinch the bottom ends together and glue.
I embellished both holders with some of the cute flamingo ephemera from the collection. The emory boards are from Amazon.
The next little projects I made were some mini post it note holders:
This design is from Inspired by Gram. For these, I cut my patterned paper to 2 1/4 x 5 inches. I scored them at 1 1/8 inches, 1 1/2 inches, 3 1/8 inches and 3 1/2 inches. Once you get them folded up, you can add your mini post it note pads (unfortunately, I didn’t realize I was out of them before making these). Once I add the post it note pad to the inside, I would add some small adhesive velcro strips to the the flaps to keep them closed.
I embellished the pads with the small flowers and sentiment from the Tropic Vibes stamp set.
After this, I was working with scraps on some final cards. I used a flamingo that I had stamped and watercolored in a previous session. I matted my pattern papers with black cardstock from my stash and put them directly onto my white cardbase. I embellished around the layout with some Blushing Red Nuvo Drops.
And here is my final card:
I decided to use the pineapple stencil that came in the Banana Split collection to create a background on my cardbase. I used Scattered Straw Distress Ink to color the body of the pineapples and Mowed Lawn to color the tops. I pieced together some of the scraps I had left and layered a piece of pineapple ephemera and sentiment on top.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my projects today! I hope you got some inspiration! I had so much fun with these!
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma ￼ up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with two inspiration cards featuring the new Mod Dies that are in the July Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
This die set is a staple in your craft room. I designed the die set to work with both the June FOTM Card Kit and the July FOTM Card Kit. The wonky shaped oval is perfect as a lily pad for the frogs in the Pond Life Collection in the June kit.
It is also perfect to use as an island for the palm tree beach stamp from the In the Tropics Collection in the July kit.
Cardmaking Blonde bringing you a glimpse at one of the stamps in July’s Flavor of the Month card kit along with the sentiments on the stamp set as well. This image was perfect for making a one layer card! Since the majority of the content was so close together I only focused on shading in the larger areas like the ocean and the sky.
This month’s kit is called In The Tropics. If you want to be sure to get yours sign up for a subscription. The kit will reveal Saturday, July 25th at midnight EST. Should you choose to wait for the reveal get one in your cart as soon as you can before they’re gone!
Thanks for stopping in and I look forward to seeing your comment this weekend during our reveal hop.
Happy Monday! I’m sharing a sneak peek from the July 2020 SFL Flavor of the Month card kit. Collection 4 has such bright pattern papers that help show off the solid palm tree image found in the stamp set.
I trimmed down the Black Licorice card stock from the kit to create my card base. I also trimmed the Shocking Pink card stock for my card panel. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the orange and green pattern paper. I decided to stamp the image and sentiment onto the green pattern paper and adhere it over the orange pattern paper so they are going in opposite directions. I then added the 3 paper flowers from Collection 4 and used Blushing Red Nuvo Crystal Drops from the June 2020 card kit to the center of the flowers. Of course, I wanted to add a little sparkle so I grabbed some Diamond Stickles and added a little to the bottom of the palm tree image.
Thanks So Much for stopping by today and check back each day for more Sneak Peeks! The full kit reveal is on Saturday, July 25 at 12:00 a.m.
Hello! It’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today and I’m sharing the first sneak peek of the July 2020 Flavor of the Month kit, In the Tropics! For those of us who haven’t been able to get away for a true vacation recently, this definitely gives you those tropical vacation vibes!!🌴
I used Collection #1 (Tropical Vibes) for my card and the Mojo Monday Sketch #300 that is included on this month’s sketch sheet. I stamped the toucan onto white card stock and used the watercolor paint set that came with the Banana Split level kit to give her some color. While she was drying, I built the rest of my card.
I used three different patterns from the collection and backed them all on black cardstock to help break up the patterns. I also stamped the hibiscus flower and painted it. I used the “Toucan do anything” sentiment (how cute is that saying???) and added it onto the card with the flower. I also ended up adding a flower sequin to cover up a paint smudge near her head.🤦🏻♀️
This card was super fun to make! You can watch my full process video HERE. I hope it gives you some inspiration for your kit this month and I hope it brings you some relaxing and tropical vibes. 😎 And, if you like what you see, be sure to sign up for the kit subscription now because these kits have been selling out fast!
