Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a card from the January 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit! This was a fun coffee-themed kit and I love this Newton’s Donut stamp that was part of Collection Two and the papers and ephemera were SFL Coffee Time from Collection One.
This is an A2 sized or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I cut a back panel to 4 X 5 1/4 inches, a strip that was 1/2 X 5 1/4 inches, and oval from a Spellbinders nesting set.
I stamped the Newton image with Momento Oynx Black Ink and colored it with Copic markers. I layered the card together and picked a few of the ephemera pieces. I popped up the oval with some fun foam and I popped up the two coffee mugs with for foam tape. I finished off the card with a few sequins from Collection One.
If you check out the link for this set above, you’ll notice that I omitted one of the kids. I knew that I had just enough room for two kids in my card design so… sadly one of them had to be omitted. But since I colored this stamp in steps with my Stampin’ Up markers, it was really easy to just color the two kids. This is an easy 2-layer builder stamp set… meaning you stamp one portion and then easily line up the next portion to stamp. I started with the hats and colored them to match the beautiful colors in the Santa’s Workshop papers by Carta Bella. I used Green Galore and Cucumber Crush for the little boys hat and Watermelon Wonder and Real Red for the girls hat. The eyes and mouth are also part of this first stamp. I used Chocolate Chip for the eyes and Blushing Bride for the mouth.
Once I had the hats done, I removed the first stamp and lined up the second stamp. It was so easy to line these up! I wanted to add some blue into the card to play off of the background paper I chose so I used the Soft Sky marker. The cheeks and nose are also part of the second stamp… I used the Blushing Bride marker again. Now at this point, I had a little bit of dimension in the hat with the different colored markers I used, but the mittens and pom poms needed a little something so I pulled out my copic markers. I’ll be honest, I don’t know if coloring on dye ink with copics is totally safe, but I haven’t had an issue with my markers. I used BG000 and BG01 on the pom poms, mittens, and bow. Then I got to thinking the faces needed to be colored in… they were just white at this point. So I pulled out my got to skin copic markers ~ E000, E00, and E21. I was careful to color around the cheeks, mouth, nose, and eyes because I really wasn’t sure what would happen… Lol! Coloring in the faces really gives this adorable stamp that extra cute touch!!
I stamped the sentiment with the same markers… Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, and Soft Sky. The dot in the ‘i’ for the word Winter connected to the letter since I had to ink it up a few times to get nice coverage, so I made a new dot! To finish off my card, I thought a little hot cocoa cup would be a fun addition. I just happened to have the Cup of Cocoa stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs on my desk so I inked up the stamp with the Real Red and Soft Sky markers. I then colored it in with the following copic markers ~ B0000, B00, R00, R14. I stamped the snowflake with the Cucumber Crush marker but it was too dark so I went over it with a white gel pen. It’s not quite white… LOL! But the nice tinge of blue works perfectly with the blues I have in the card. I sure love how this card turned out!!

Hi Everyone, it’s Stacy from CraftaholicMomma up on the Scrapping for Less blog with Day 4 of the new card kit sneak peeks.
Are you excited? I know I am. The papers and stamps in this kit are so “exotic” they’ll turn you into a Wild Animal!!
Today I used the stamp and papers from Collection Three. I also grab the sentiment from the Banana Split Stamp set.
I created the image by doing a lot of masking and stamping to create my little meerkat crowd. I used a cloud stencil and Distress Oxide inks to blend the background.
The handsome little meerkat down front was stamped on the pattern paper, fussy cut and paper pieced into position.
To help the sentiment stand out as well, I slid the paper off to the side a teeny bit and did a “ghost” stamp.

Hello Everyone! Christine from Pattercrafts here to share this fun card to tell someone special how much they mean to you!
For today’s card, I am using the Cozy Camper Stamp Set by Newton’s Nook. For this card, I cut an oval using a scallop oval die in the center of the card base. I then used white card stock to create a scene to put behind the oval. The scene was created first by heat embossing the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment with a clear sticky ink, then sprinkled on some charcoal embossing powder and heat set.
Once my sentiment was heat set, I used a cloud stencil and some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to make clouds in the sky. For the grass, I used a grassy border die and made several layers.
The images were all stamped with Gina K Designs Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I used copic markers to color all the images then cut them out. I added the larger of the 2 campers, the table setting and of course a flamingo to the front panel.
To finish the card, I added a few heart stamps above the sentiment – it looked a little bare up there 😉
Thank you so much for stopping by today! If you’re interested in the video that goes along with this card CLICK HERE!
Hey, everyone! My family spent this past week at the lake, so it’s super fitting that this month’s theme from Scrapping for Less is camping and outdoors!
The Winston’s Lake House stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs is SO cute! There are so many cute scene building stamps! I almost went with a lake scene – but the little bear and cabin images just spoke to me!
This card came together super quickly with just a bit of masking! I stamped my sentiment first and then the bear image. When masking it’s important to remember to stamp whatever image you want to be in front first! I stamped the bear image onto masking paper and cut it out with scissors and placed it over my original stamped image and stamped my lake house. When I removed the masking paper it looks like the lake house is set behind the little bear! I used my Spectrum Noir Triblend markers to color them in.
I didn’t to much to embellish the card – just some gems and clear glitter! Check out my video below!
Good Morning and Happy Thursday! Katie here (yes, again. I made extra cards when I was creating this card and a DT sister needed me to step in to fill her spot yesterday.) from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Newton’s Nook Designs “Lake Advice” stamp set & Echo Park Paper “Good Day Sunshine” 6×6 paper pad!
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.
First I have a set of six cards using Newton’s Nook Designs “Vitamin Sea” stamp set & “Seashells” stencil.
Here is what I created:
These first 6 cards were inspired by video that Jennifer McGuire posted about a week ago. I used my Gina K 3.5”x 3.5” wreath builder template with the Ranger Distress Oxide inks and stenciled the corners of the cards. Next, I cut paper 3.75”x 3.75” and shaded the outside edges. Lastly, I cut 4”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.
My next card I struggled with. I just wasn’t sure how I was going to put it together. I started by stamping out the “Cling Jellyfish” from Stampendous and using my Scan n’ Cut to cut it out. I then took the “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide ink and shaded the whole the jellyfish. Then, I took the “Carved Pumpkin” and pressed the ink pad into an acrylic block to use as a paint pallet. I then painted the jelly fish in “Carved Pumpkin” and highlighted the circles with the “White Blizzard” Nuvo Glitter Drops. I then cut a card base 4”x 5.25” and “double stamped or 2nd generation stamping” the jellyfish (inking the image and stamping once on scrap paper and then stamping a second time on the card base). Lastly, I cut a card base 4.25”x 5.5” and shaded with the “Carved Pumpkin” Distress Oxide ink. Once all of this was done, I used foam squares to pop the jelly fish and assembled the 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.
