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.
This is an A2 or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch card. I used the Knit Picky Fall Paper Pad, found a piece I liked and cut it down to 4 X 5 1/4 inches for the front panel. I cut an oval out of the center with a die to create a frame.
I used Sticko “Autumn Pumpkin” and SandyLion “Tree With Leaves” stickers to create a scene. I popped up the images with foam tape to finish off the card.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my sneak peek for the July Scrapping For Less Flavor of the month kit. Let me tell you, this kit is awesome and it was really hard to figure out what I wanted to play with for my sneak peek.
I decided to use portions from a couple of collections to put my project together, and wow did I have fun with it. This months kit is just amazing, and I really can’t wait to show you the other projects I had fun making this coming /Saturday morning at 1200am, July 17, 2019.
For this first card it gives every reason I love going camping. I really miss the days we would join the family out at the camp in the Florida Everglades and have fun all weekend without a care about what was back at home. Campfires that we kept running all day and night, swamp buggy and four wheeler rides out to the middle of the field to check out the stars.
My husband said this is his favorite card of the three. Canoeing is so much fun and I personally can’t wait until the water is high enough to be able to go to down the river on a 4 hour float.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my project using Stampendous Stamp set called “Turtle Fun“. Let me just say after the few days we spent at the beach last week, having manatee’s come up and swim right by us, the only thing I had told my husband I was missing was some turtles, so when I found that I was getting to work with this set, I was so happy.
To make this card, the main blue panel is from a Lawn Fawn 6×6 paper pad called Watercolor Wishes, first I stamped the image twice, one I cut the images apart using my Scan n Cut and the other I used a combination of Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch that was still on my blending brush from a past project to blend the ocean water at the top of the panel. I then used my Radiating Rays stencils from MFT and the same blend again to create the image of the sunlight shining down into the water.
I used alcohol markers to color my images and foam tape to pop them up over their corresponding parts on the main card panel to add a 3D effect. I used Morning Dew Nuvo drops on the yes and lights on the ship, and White Blizzard Nuvo drops in the air bubbles.
Once all this was complete, I used a Spellbinders Die to make this pop up slider effect, which is where I used more of the Oxide ink blend, and stamped the sentiment. Once the recipient pulls the twine on the top, the card panel will slide up, and the sentiment will be revealed. Had I used thicker foam tape to attach the top panel to the base, I wold have been able to include a gift card under the panel as well.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters. It’s LeeAnn and I am here today with my first post for Scrapping For Less in for June 2019. I had so much fun while making this card, using Avery Elle’s “Sea-Prise” stamp set and I hope you enjoy it.
To start off I used Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxides to make my cover layer. I used an MFT Stencil (Make Waves) to create the scene. Once dry, I spritzed on some water to help with the look.
I then stamped the schools of fish using the Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide. I stamped the Shark and Pufferfish using GinaK Amalgam Black Ink, and stamped the sentiment with the same. I cut out my images with the Scan N Cut and colored with Artist Loft Alcohol Markers.
My layers were put together using GinaK Connect Glue. I love the ease of use for this little bottle.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my final Scrapping For Less project for May 2019. I had so much fun making this, other than the video that I tried, and it stopped working half through.
How I made this fun Magic Color Slider Card… without the die…
Take an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet cardstock, score at 5.5″ on the short and 4.25″ on the long.
2. Cut away the top left panel as this will be used later for your slider.
3. If making your card portrait as I did, Cut .25″ off along the outside of the right panels.
4. With the remaining lower left panel score in .25″ and cut the top and bottom corners at an angle.
5. Decide if you want a Circle, Square, Rectangle or whatever hole for your window, I went with Rectangle using my stitched rectangle dies. I folded my panels so that the bottom left which is what would be the top panel would be cut with the die and ran it through my die cutter.
6. For me at this point I cut in .25 from each side on the top right so that it would say down easily.
7. I then folded the upper right down over the upper left, and folded the lower left over to cover the same, to put the panel that was upper right in between the two.
8. Using score tape on the little flap I closed it up by tucking it into the back panel. making a big pocket with a panel in the middle.
9. Cut a piece of acetate to be 5.25″ x 3.75″ and using a piece of score tape attach to the center top of the panel we had cut away in step 2 which I cut to the same measurements.
10. Stamp the image on the acetate using Staz-On ink in the same place it will be on the inner panel. For I stamped on the acetate, then positioned the piece I had already cut and colored in the same spot so they lined up.
11. Using pattern paper out of the “Believe” paper pack I used my stitched rectangle dies to make frames for the front of my card and panels for the slider part as well.
12. Using a tab die from a Lawn Fawn set I made a pull tab and attached with score tape to the top of the slider panel and attached some bakers twine to that for a pull string.
13. Putting the card together at this point was easy, I slid the panel with the pattern paper and colored image behind the white panel and the acetate panel in front. It is all hidden by the frames on the front of the card. After some stamp surgery I stamped the sentiment on the cloud and attached it to the top of the frame to complete my card.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here on my new blog and ready to get Kraken. using this great stamp set by Newton’s Nook, and other supplies from Scrapping For Less, I had some fun crafty time putting this together for you to enjoy.
Using the Amalgam Ink I stamped out the images of the Kraken, Bottle and Scroll. Using my Scan n Cut I cut the images and then the bottle again from a card panel.
Using the water layers from the Shadowbox Ocean Set and stitched rectangle dies I cut the panel to the exact size I wanted and then started playing with my Oxides.
First I used Salty Ocean and Broken China to blend on the bottom of the main panel, and the 3 water layers. I the varied with the Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral to create the sunrise. Once satisfied with the blend, I grabbed my Radiating Rays Stencil and the Squeezed Lemonade again to get those rays just right.
I used Nuvo liquid clue and adhered a panel of acetate to the inside of the top panel, I then adhered one of the water layers. I added some foam tape around the sides and put in some sequins from my stash. I had already added the scroll with the “Let’s Get Kraken” sentiment to the panel of my cardbase, so that it would show through when the main panel was attached. Once the top panel was added to the base with the shaker intact, I was able to add the 2nd and 3rd water layers along with the Kraken in its rightful place among the waves. After adding a few water drops to activate the Oxides, my card was complete.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a project I had a lot of fun creating.
This Picket Fence stamp set came in perfect timing. I had a coworker who has been down a bit lately, not like herself. While at work the day after this stamp set arrived I started thinking about what I could do, and I came up with this card. The next day it was on her desk when she arrived and now it hangs on her corkboard.
To make this cute card, I first stamped the Picket Fence Sympathetic Unicorn and Cloud out with Gina K Designs Black Amalgam Ink. I knew I would be using Alcohol Markers and this is a safe ink to use. I alternated colors with my markers to color the mane in a rainbow scheme.
The sentiment is stamped inside the card using the same Amalgam ink.
The background pattern paper sheet is from Bo Bunny “Believe” collection.
I stamped the sentiment on a sheet of vellum using the Amalgam ink and heat embossed using Nuvo Jet Black embossing powder. Using strategically placed liquid Multi-Medium Matte under the sentiment, cloud and unicorn
I was able to adhere the Vellum without it being seen. I finished the card off with some “Love Potion” Nuvo Dream Drops.

Hi My Dear Crafters, I am so glad to be joining you tonight…you might wonder what in the world do I have a pic of a tooth? Well, that tooth is the reason my post is delayed today. I had to go to the dentist today. Now…some of you might say…that is no big deal…but let me tell you for me it sure is. My anxiety kicks in big time when I have to even get my teeth cleaned. I have to take major medication to even keep my bottom glued to that chair. So the result is I am loopy, tired, and lethargic the whole day of going to the dentist. So that is my little piece of probably way too much information!
