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!
The big reveal with be this coming Saturday, at 12:00 am EST. If you’re interested in making sure one of these gorgeous kits has your name on be sure to sign up for a subscription (plus saves you even more $$) prior to 10:00 pm EST Friday night.

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.
