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”
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with some further inspiration created using February’s card kit. I am in love with the papers, the ephemera and I CANNOT STOP EMBOSSING THESE IMAGES! I had to literally make myself get up from my desk and stop making cards because it was time to get dinner started. Several hours had gone by and I was so busy creating I didn’t realize how much time had passed. So here they are I hope you enjoy them and I hope you grab yours before they are gone!
This gal is just stunning, whether inked, embossed or colored this stamp set is incredibly versatile. The paper is beautiful and feminine and she looks stunning in gold!
Shaker cards are fun and the paper in this collection takes the cupcake! I wanted to show off the paper and could not bear to cover it up and I thought creating a shaker card with this scalloped frame would be a great way to do that. Using Nuvo drops I added a little sparkle and interest to the wood icon cupcake, teapot and cup of tea. Filled the shaker with sequins of colors that are in the paper.
Thank you so much for taking a little time today to come see what we are up to over here at SFL. We are having so much fun with this kit over here on the blog, if you haven’t seen it already take a peek at past blog posts for even more inspiration. My fellow design teammates are incredibly talented!
I’m also bringing in some distress ink and watercolor paper to do a little ink smooshing. I am using Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and bring in little Peacock Feathers for some hearts.
First, I flipped through all the beautiful pattern papers to find the one I wanted to use. Once I chose a pattern, I used a stitched rectangle die to trim my panel.
Next, I took out my non-stick mat and smooshed down some Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I added some water and pressed down my watercolor piece. I did this again then repeated the step with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I used a heat gun to dry the area and added hearts using the Distress Ink.
I stamped out the vacuum image from the stamp set with Copic friendly ink and colored the image with Copic markers. I then used the coordinating die to die cut the image. All that is left is putting the pieces together and adding some finishing touches!

Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with this week’s fourth sneak peek for January’s Flavor of the Month card kit. This month is “All About the Boys” and if buffalo plaid isn’t a great fit for masculine cards I don’t know what is! I am excited to share today’s card with you and also tell a quick story of some confusion I had and maybe clear it up for you all too in case you have the same question I did. So here is my card which I created using collection two “Buffaloed”.
When I got my kit in the mail and opened and was pouring over all the collections I came to this collection and read the sentiments and thought “What in the world does Buffaloed mean?” I’m getting accustomed to not knowing new songs, new slang, and new actors/actresses. I thought I had new slang to learn but nope turns out it’s just a word I wasn’t familiar with. It means to be intimidated, so the way I used it on this card is saying “Don’t get buffaloed (intimidated). Stand your ground! Have a wild birthday!” Perfect for someone who may be facing a milestone birthday I think.
That’s it for this sneak peek I hope you find some inspiration and maybe a new vocabulary word 😉 . Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to check out this card. Don’t forget it’s sneak peek week so check out the other peeks from previous days and come back tomorrow for the last one before the big reveal!
Hello Everyone! I’m here to share a Sneak Peek from the December 2019 SFL Flavor of the Month Card Kit!!
Today I am using one of the December 2019 Card Sketches and items from Collection 3. First, I trimmed the pattern paper down as shown on the sketch. Then, on some white card stock, I stamped out the image from the stamp set found in this collection. I found this sentiment from the set fit perfectly inside the heart. I trimmed out the image with a square die and used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink along the edges.
Thanks So Much for stopping by and stop in each day for more sneak peeks until the reveal on Saturday at 12:00am.
Hello Crafty Friends! It’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a bunch of cards I made using what I think is probably my newest favorite Doodlebug collection: Winter Wonderland. Well…..it’s definitely in the top 5. LOL
What I love about Doodlebug is all you need is their 6×6 paper pad and the Icon stickers and you are good to go! I’m only showing 12 cards today. I originally made 23 cards and one cell phone case insert from the paper pad. However, I gave some of the cards away to family and friends before I realized I wanted to use them in my Design Team post.
Hello everyone! Kim here with a Christmas card with a pink color scheme to it. I like using non-traditional colors whether it’s for Christmas cards or any other occasions that have an expected color scheme. So here is how this card came together:
used Silver Bells Tags from Kaiserkraft-I used two of them because I wanted the front and the back. I removed the metal piece because I knew I didn’t plan on using the strings that come with the tags.
for the little hole I used pink stone Nuvo drops (QUICK TIP: when you put it down and you want a nice rounded bead don’t be afraid to whack the card against your hand or on a table it will help round the drops out)
This card came together rather quickly and if you only used one tag you could use it for your sentiment for six cards! And you would still have six tags that you could use for tags. Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to visit the blog! I hope you get a chance to do something crafty today!
Hello my crafty friends! It’s Kim here with a stamp set that I have been chomping at the bit to use! The images are the epitome of cozy and of all days here in Florida it is actually cold today! High of 68 degrees (yes that’s cold here). So here’s a run down of what I did with today’s card:
cut down my shiplap paper to 4″x5 1/4″ and adhered it onto the Nordic Winter sheet with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive (QUICK TIP: keep a sewing needle or strait pin nearby to unclog the tip)
used a rounded stitched rectangle die to cut out the image
finished by adding the sentiment in Versafine Ink and adding Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen
This was my first attempt at a “no line” coloring and I’m liking how it turned out so I definitely think I will try again, practice makes perfect, right? Thank you so much for stopping in and checking out this card. I hope you get the chance to get crafty today!
To create this card I started with an A2 size cardbase or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I used Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. I stamped the images I wanted to use with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with copic markers. I used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out.
I cut the glitter paper for the front panel to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and cut out a 3 1/4 inch circle towards the top center of the card and then cut out another circle from white card stock with a 3 1/2 inch die.
I adhered all of the tree images to the 3 1/2 inch circle panel and popped the mouse images up with some foam dots. I adhered the 3 1/2 inch circle to the top of the card base and then adhered the glitter paper to the card base lining up the circles. I stamped the sentient “Cold Hands” from Hero Arts Ink in Moss on a white strip of card stock. I cut the banner down to 4 1/4 X 3/4 inches and adhered it towards the bottom of the card with some foam tape.
To finish it off I stamped on the inside of the card the sentiment “Warm Heart”, as well as, the image of the mittens with the string of them creating a heart. I colored in the mittens with copic markers.
