So glad you stopped by the blog today. Today’s card was created with Sunny Studio Stamps Cheerful Daisies stamp set. Looking at the stamp set alone makes me happy and then when you add color WOW!
This stamp set is what I like to refer to as a stampy stamp. A stampy stamp is a stamp set in which one must stamp in colored ink to create the image of the stamp. Gotta tell you these type of stamps are a tinge on the intimidating side to me. Now I will say that having a stamp tool is fantastic and makes it so much easier than trying to line it up free hand but Sunny Studio has also taken the extra step and beside each stamp it tells you what to use next, which I love!
The ink I used is Lawn Fawn premium dye ink. I took a lot more pics than I typically take because I wanted you to be able to see how it looks because if this becomes your first stampy stamp I wanted you all to see that it looks different. So no more chit chat. Here’s the pics…
When stamping with stampy stamps go lighter to darker and know that you may have to stamp the image several times to get full coverage. This is a beautiful stamp set and it made such a happy card! Here it is again…
I heat embossed the sentiment in white puff embossing powder, I knew I wanted it to be thick looking.
Thanks again for stopping by and spending your time with us today!
For this first card, I stamped the image on 110lb Neenah Solar White card stock. I am making an A2 size card I used a stitched oval die to cut out a frame for the card. I used a powder blue color card base and cut one of the pieces of pattern paper down to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, so the piece is the size of the card with no borders. I used a stitched oval die to create a frame from the pattern paper. Then I adhered the floral design to the card base and used foam tape to pop up the frame piece and adhered it while lining it up. I stamped the sentiment on the same type of paper and cut the thin strip to about 4 inches and fishtailed the ends. I adhered the sentiment to the card panel toward the bottom leaving some of the frame hole showing on the bottom. I used Crystal Nuvo Drops and some sequins from my stash to finish off the card.
For the second card, I stamped the image on Strathmore Colored Pencil paper, the card is A2 size and I cut the back panel from pattern paper to 4in X 5 1/4in to leave a border from the dusty pink color card base I used. I used a stitched oval die to cut out the image, used “Worn Lipstick” Distress Oxide Ink to give some color just to the outer edge of the oval. Then I cut out an oval the next size up from the same colored pencil paper and layered it behind the oval with the image. I adhered that piece toward the bottom center of the card, stamped a sentiment from the same paper, cut out the strip, fishtailed one end and adhered it to towards the top of the card. I finished off the card by adding some Crystal Nuvo Drops.
For my final card, I stamped the image on Strathmore Colored Pencil paper, the card is A2 size and I cut the back panel from pattern paper to 4in X 5 1/4in to leave a border from the Neenah Solar White card base I used. I then used strips to crisscross measuring 2in X 4 1/4in and 1 3/4in X 5 1/2in. The image I cut down to 2 1/2in X 3 3/4in and adhered it to a rectangle piece measuring 3 1/4 X 4 1/2in. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the image paper and finished it off with some Nuvo Stone Drops.

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!

Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea and I’m so excited about the Scrapping for Less April 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit! The theme this month is Spring Critters and there are some SERIOUSLY cute products in this kit! Let’s see a little sneak peek into this kit!
I LOVE the Spring Critters theme in this kit – but I’m always a sucker for florals, so of course I was drawn to one stamp set in particular! I created a stamped patterned background to match one of the little empherma tags in the collection.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek! And I hope you’re excited for the full reveal of the April 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit! The full reveal happens Saturday, April 27th at midnight!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out what’s up today on The Blog! I have loved Easter since I was little, I can remember digging into my Easter basket as a little one and then having to put it all down to get dressed up to go to the Easter Service and looking at my mom in disbelief that I was going to have leave all of the goodies I JUST found out about!
The love of Easter and bunnies has stuck with me through the years leaving me with a soft spot for cute bunnies and Sunny Studio’s Clear Stamp “Chubby Bunny” have some of the cutest bunnies I think I’ve ever seen!
So here is the journey of the card I made from stamping out the images to having to do a little card surgery but in the end I still arrived with a cute little Easter card I can’t wait to give to somebunny special. (I know, it’s just too precious, I almost can’t stand myself either, lol!)
I stamped out all the images, colored them with Copic Markers and then cut them out using my Scan n’ Cut.
I got out one of my sets of square dies, these happen to be from Gina Marie and I thought it looked like a picture frame and I liked the idea of being able to stamp my sentiment across the top since it looks like a banner. Once I got everything cut out I glued it down using Lawn Fawn’s adhesive which has quickly become one of my faves. I stamped my sentiment using VersaFine in Black Onyx and also blinged up a few things using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker. Once I got my sentiment in place I added a few silver glossy dots from Pink & Main.
I used a white pen to hit the bunnies’ teeth and then a black gel pen to do their eyes and though I would do one little guys mouth. Then things went awry! My black gel pen just put out much more ink than I was expecting or maybe I pressed too hard and that’s why the calamity began I am still not sure. I just know that I panicked and tried to fix it with my finger and the more I touched things the more things just went worse! That’s when I knew it was time to call up another bunny and put this little guy out of his misery.
The surgery went a lot easier than I expected and I was even able to cover up any paper tears with my new little candidate. I wanted to include this part of the journey and a pic to go with it because I don’t know about y’all but rarely do I make a card without having something that needs to be fixed. I will say I don’t typically lose an entire character but hey, it happens.
In the end it all came together and at least I got to use my favorite little bunny which is the one in the center. The little brown bunny eating a chocolate bunny, this image cracks me up!!! In my head when I see this little guy chowing down on that chocolate bunny all I hear is “Nom, nom, nom, nom!”
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you will get the chance to create today or at least do something that you’ve been wanting to do! Take care and I hope to see you back here soon.
