Oh my goodness are you in for a treat!
May’s Flavor of the Month card kit is just beautiful. From the paper to the extras in the Banana Split card kit so many items perfect for creating encouragement cards. I chose to feature the Weather Together collection because I LOVE rainbows! The paper speaks to my childhood memories and the sentiments are just what I am wanting to say to my friends and family at this time.
We have one more sneak peek before the release of the entire card kit so don’t miss out and if you want to ensure getting your hands on May’s Flavor of the card kit sign up here for a subscription.

Keep on crafting,
I used the MFT Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Distress Oxide Inks in Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender and Tumbled Glass to create the background. I alternated the four sides of the stencil with each color of ink.
I stamped the dragons in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in with my Copic Markers.
I die-cut the panel with the MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also die-cut some clouds out of white glitter paper from my stash with the Paper Smooches Cute Clouds die.
I finished off the card by gluing the clouds down flat, popping the dragons up on adhesive foam and stamping the sentiment with the black ink.

Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with another sweet card using the adorable Winter Fairies stamp set by Scrapping for Less. I couldn’t wait to ink up this adorable fairy napping on the moon… doesn’t she just look so happy?! Love it!
I started by stamping the cute fairy on the moon with Memento tuxedo black ink and then I colored the image in with the following copic markers:
Skin ~ E000, E00, E21, R00, R20
Hair ~ E35, E37
Clothes ~ RV0000, RV10, RV11, C00, C1
Moon/Cloud ~ Y000, Y11, Y13, Y18, B000
Once the cute fairy and moon were colored, I fussy cut them… and even used my craft knife to cut the tiny space between the fairy’s hat and the moon. I just realized that I missed the space between her hat and her wing… oops! Anywho, I set that aside and got to work on the background.
I blended a tiny bit of Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink in the center left portion of the panel and blended some Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks around that center portion working my way outwards to the edge. I blended over these a few times to get just the right blend. I then dried my background with a heat tool and splattered some white acrylic paint onto the background for my stars.
I set the background aside to dry and die cut the stitched scallop frame from Gina Marie Designs and the stitched clouds from Lawn Fawn, both from white card stock. I then adhered the clouds to the back of the frame piece and trimmed the edges. I trimmed down the blended background to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″ and then popped up the frame/cloud piece on the blended background.
I then adhered the entire panel onto a white card base. I love how this sweet card turned out! I sure hope that you like it too!
Thanks so much for stopping by! See ya next time.
Hey, everyone! It’s Christmas All Year Long at Scrapping for Less and I have some fun inspiration for you using the My Favorite Things Beast Friend stamp set. This was one of my first stamp sets from My Favorite Things and it’s still one of my favorites!
I stamped and colored the little yeti holding the string of lights from the Beast Friends stamp set with my Copics. My favorite way to color these guys is with light Neutral Gray Copic markers and skin tones for his face and ears. I grabbed some Distress Inks and started blending ink onto a background panel. I only used Crushed Olive, but because I didn’t clean off my blender brush the inside blending is a different shade of green. I quite like it when I stumble upon happy accidents!
Once the ink blended background was completely dry I white heat embossed the three trees from the Beast Friends stamp set repeatedly across my card. I was going to leave it this way, but I decided to add a bit of shine with a gold ink from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolor palette. I’m so glad I did! To match the gold watercoloring I heat embossed a gold sentiment onto a strip, popped up my sentiment and yeti, and added some gold glittery enamel dots around the card.
I love how the gold and green play off each other, don’t you?! Thanks for joining me! I hope you’re inspired to break out your Christmas supplies and get crafty!
