Hello crafty friends! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with a card I have been wanting to make for soooo long! Now with a bit more time on my hands thanks to Social Distancing I have gotten the chance. When I first saw this stamp I literally gasped because I thought it was so beautiful! So here are the two card I made with the Wonderful World by Gina K Designs:
Using VersaFine ink I stamped the image and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then colored in the image using Zig Clean Real Brush Markers and a water pen. Heat embossed the sentiment on velum paper. I tried several different colors of embossing powder and this was the easiest to read. Unfortunately it does not show up well in the pic, it reads: “The World Is A Better Place Because You’re In It”
Hello everyone! It’s Jackie from Jackie’s Craft Table, and I’m so excited to be a special guest designer this December for Scrapping for Less!! The card I created features the gorgeous stamp set from Gina K Designs called, “Whimsical Wildflowers,” and the beautiful pattern paper from Scrapping for Less called, “Fairy’s Garden.”
I absolutely love creating floral cards, and I had a ball putting this one together. I chose one of the many beautiful flowers from the stamp set and colored it in with some Prismacolor colored pencils. I used flicking motions to add some texture to my flowers, and I left a white highlight in the middle of each petal–this really helps to make them pop.
I fussy-cut my flowers and leaves, attached them to my sentiment, and popped it up with foam tape. The pattern paper is what really pulls this card together. I love flowers and stripes together–they go together like peanut butter and jelly. I used a piece of the floral paper as well as a piece of the striped paper, and that’s what really added the magic to this card! I used some pink Nuvo Drops and some strips of metallic paper over my seams, and this card was complete! There is also a process video for this card over on my YouTube channel.
The Scrapping for Less theme for December is Hodgepodge Potpourri which means we will be showcasing all kinds of different products and companies this month. Check out the blog to see all of these fabulous products! I hope you enjoyed my card project and were inspired to create something fabulous!
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.

Hello! Alicia (Crazy Paper Chick) here and I am so excited to be a guest designer for the month of November for Scrapping for Less.
For my card today, I used the beautiful pattern paper from Carta Bella called Christmas. If you love a rustic theme for your Christmas cards, you will love this paper! For my stamp set I used LDRS Creative’s Arctic Animals. The sweet fox paired perfectly with the rustic theme of the pattern paper. I chose to color the fox gray to give it a soft look against the “wood” background of the pattern paper. For the sentiment I used a piece of pattern paper from the same paper pack.
I added some ribbon from my stash and adhered everything down to my vanilla card base measuring A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ once scored and folded). I topped the card off with some Nuvo Drops in Honey Gold to add some sparkle.
I was an elementary school teacher for many years. During Christmas time for Social Studies we studied Christmas traditions around the world. This was my absolute favorite time of the year with my students. So, for our Christmas Around the World card kit I have chosen my most favorite countries we studied to feature.
Mexico: Great food and wonderful traditions centered around Papa Noel.
Sweden: St. Lucia was my favorite tradition in Sweden we studied.
Australia: My students got the biggest kick out of the fact that it was hot and summer there during Christmas.
Germany: Of course what would a study be without studying the origin of the Christmas tree.

Hi everyone! Kim here with a cute koala doodle-pop from Doodlebug Designs and a confession…I have a habit of hoarding my doodle-pops! I know, I know they are meant to be used but I sure do love looking through them and sometimes find it hard to use them up. That being said they really do make the cutest addition to cards.
I started off wanting to create some background paper with the koala stamps from the Hero Arts stamp set Realistic Animals. Using Gina K. Designs Amalgam ink in whisper I stamped the images all over the paper. It looked amazing at first and then once it dried I found that it was super hard to see which completely defeated the purpose. I didn’t want to completely lose the sheet so I decided to use it to frame the koala.
I had some paper in my stash that was covered in leaves and I thought it would be perfect for using as a background. While trimming the paper down the leaves seemed to lend themselves perfectly to being cut out and a few of them popped up with some pop dot pieces. Some cards you may spend quite some time coloring an image or spend some time doing an ink technique or playing with embossing paste but so often when I am using a doodle-pop as a main focus the card comes together so quickly that I find myself looking it over extra long to see what I missed.
QUICK TIP: WHEN USING POP DOTS BE SURE TO USE PARTS OF THE PANEL LEFT BEHIND AFTER USING THE DOTS. THEY CAN BE CUT UP AND USED FOR WHATEVER SIZE YOU MAY NEED!
Also the sentiment that was used on this card came from the Hero Arts stamp set Realistic Animals. I love this little koala’s face so sweet!
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you find some time for yourself today.
Hello my friends! It’s Stacy here from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog. Today I have a card for you using the Stampendous Giraffe stamp and die combo set. There are two things that I really like about this set. One, you can take the background die and use it with any stamp you have in your collection to make a tree scene. You can make it like the safari I made here, or you could use it as a meadow tree or Halloween dead tree just by changing up the colors of card stock you cut. Two, the giraffe set is so cute and versatile. You could mirror stamp a second one and entwine their necks around each other for an adorable love you card. There’s just so much you can do with it!!
I masked off the card layer with a circle die and masking paper. I used blending brushes and Distress Oxide inks to create the horizon and safari sky. I die cut the tree with black card stock and made it into a frame with a second circle die from my stash. I adhered this over the inked background with liquid adhesive. I stamped, die cut and colored the giraffe with Copic Markers. Stamping the sentiment and popping the giraffe and card layer up on foam adhesive finished it off nicely.
I think it fits in nicely with this month’s theme of “In the Wild”. I would love to go on an African safari someday. I just LOVE giraffes and elephants!
These cards were
inspired by video that Jennifer McGuire posted about a week ago. I used my Gina K 4”x 4” wreath builder template with the Ranger Distress Oxide inks and stenciled the corners of the cards. Next, I cut I cut 4.25”x 8” cardstock for my
card base. I LOVE this technique that
Jennifer shared with us in her video. I
am looking forward to using this technique in the future.
Hi Crafters, it’s Stacy from CraftaholicMomma today on the Scrapping for Less blog. I’ve been thoroughly enchanted by all the “slimline” cards people are making so I’ve been making a few myself. I told Teresa I had this idea to take all of the critters (aside from one or two) and make this mesmerizing under water magical scene. I think I could live under water if I had all of these beautiful creatures for neighbors.
You are going to LOVE this kit!! In fact I predict you’ll go bonkers for it!!
My card measures 3 1/2″ by 8 1/2″.
That’s a 7″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock scored at 3 1/2″ on the 7″ side. They fit in either a #9 or #10 (business) size envelope.
