Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a sweet card using the July 2020 FOTM Card Kit… this time I have one card using the In the Tropics Collection. I absolutely love this palm tree silhouette!! It really makes for great scene cards!
I used some Copic markers to create a light scene around the black palm tree silhouette. I went a little heavy on the oranges in the copic coloring because I knew I was using the yellow and orange papers from the collection and card kit. And I threw in a little purple-pink to work with the flower accent!
I used the following Copic markers for this card ~ B0000, B000, RV10, RV21, Y11, Y15, Y35, YR15.
I finished off the card with a few of the shell sequins. A simple design, but pretty!
There are times that life just gets in the way…recently my hubby and I bought a house and moved. Three weeks ago to be exact and as it so often does, my craft room was the last room in the house to get any attention. Not for lack of love, that’s for sure but no matter what is going on in life we all have to eat, bathe (hopefully frequently, ha!) and sleep so my craft room is still in disarray.
I tell you all of this to make a point…I was able to grab my kit and a few minimal supplies: stamp tool, trimmer, liquid glue and scissors and still come up with a super cute card to give a friend in need of encouragement. Hopefully this little story will encourage you to make some time for yourself even if your supplies are minimal and life is taking over your space and your time.
July’s Flavor of the Month kit sold out (yay!). If you would like to ensure that you get next month’s kit sign up for a subscription that way you won’t miss a thing!
Thanks so much for coming to the blog today, I hope you find some time for yourself and get to do that thing you love doing!
Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie sharing the August challenge for the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share Facebook group! This month’s challenge is another sketch challenge. We had a great turn out for our July sketch challenge and I’m really hoping that this fun slimline sketch will also make for lots of entries in our August challenge!
Before we get to the sketch and the card that I’m sharing today… the key to playing along with the challenge is being a member of the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share Facebook group so if you aren’t already a member be sure to join us —> here. Also, please note that you don’t need a blog to enter the challenge as you’re adding a photo of your creation directly into the challenge album in the group. You are welcome to include a link to your blog in the description of your creation, if you’d like.
Unfortunately, I hurt my back the other day and I am having a slow go at creating right now so I’m sharing the card that I created for the hop. I do hope to share another card at a later time though.
I had a lot of fun blending the skies for this card. I may do a video and share some tips in how I kept the scenes in place throughout each circle. But that will be later in the month. Anywho, this challenge will run from today, August 1st and will end August 31st at 11:59pm EDT. The winner will be announced in the comments of the Challenge album on Tuesday, September 1st. Please use #sflsketchchallenge7 in any social media posts when playing along with the challenge.
Cardmaking Blonde bringing you a glimpse at one of the stamps in July’s Flavor of the Month card kit along with the sentiments on the stamp set as well. This image was perfect for making a one layer card! Since the majority of the content was so close together I only focused on shading in the larger areas like the ocean and the sky.
This month’s kit is called In The Tropics. If you want to be sure to get yours sign up for a subscription. The kit will reveal Saturday, July 25th at midnight EST. Should you choose to wait for the reveal get one in your cart as soon as you can before they’re gone!
Thanks for stopping in and I look forward to seeing your comment this weekend during our reveal hop.
