Kim from Cardmaking Blonde coming to you today with one of the cutest little sunbathers I’ve ever seen! SFL’s newest release is Summer Floaties! This release has a stamp set and paper pad and they go perfectly together. Of course they can be used separately but why would you want to?
While making this card I chose the watermelon paper because the little cutie is holding a slice of watermelon. The pool water you see is also from the paper pad and I used a pool die to cut out the shape. To create the border around the pool I used Nuvo Glitter Drops. The little cutie on her flamingo floatie is colored with Copic markers. She’s stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink so her features would be a bit softer. Heat embossed the sentiment with white detail embossing powder after prepping with some powder and using VersaMark.
This release is in limited supply so grab yours before they’re gone! Thank you so much for checking out the blog today and I hope you are in the middle of making a great Summer for you and your loved ones.
I colored up these little guys using Copic markers. I shaded where I could and for the teeny tiny areas I just focused on staying inside the area. This is my first slimline card and it was so much fun. I felt like I had more room to play with and create a scene. I used a waves die to create the waves and then inked them up with Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass. For the sand part I almost used paper but then remembered I had some sand embossing powder and I just could not be stopped at that point!
I am loving how this Slimline card turned out and if you have not made your first one yet don’t be intimidated. The measurement for the card base is 8.5 inches x 7 inches, then on the 7 inch side score at 3.5 inches. Okay that’s me for today. I have included the direct links to the items I used while creating today’s card.
Thank you so much for stopping by to day, please leave a comment and have a great rest of your day!
I stamped and the puppy images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers I used my Scan N Cut to cut the puppy images out.
I cut a panel of 110lb Neenah white cardstock to 5 1/2 X 4 inches, stamped and masked the scene stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the scene with Copic markers. I was not happy with the coloring at all and ended up cutting the panel down to 5 1/2 X about 3 inches.
If you want to make scene cards but are not sure about drawing your own the “Spring Scenes” stamp set is perfect. There are so many options with this one set for perfect scenes every time.
I used the dies to cut out a border on the top and bottom of a 5 1/2 X 4-inch panel on the 5 1/2 inch side. I ended up making the panel 5 1/2 by about 3 3/4 inches.
I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, on a circle I cut out of white cardstock. I used my Misti to position the stamps to fit. The “& puppy dog kisses” is all one piece and I thought it would be cute to have the sentiment follow the curve of the circle instead of cutting it down. By using a stamping platform I was able to get the entire sentiment positioned and stamp it all at one time.
I used a black gel pen for the one puppy’s nose, used a white gel pen for their eyes, and added just a little Glossy Accents to the puppy’s bow and nose!
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images super quick with Copic Markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out, I used the dies to cut out ric rac and border the back panel, I cut a circle using a stitched circle die, and then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, added a few enamel dots and added just a little of the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the puppy’s bow!

Hello! It’s Kari from Sunshine In My Pocket.com and I’m so excited to be a guest on the Scrapping For Less blog! Today I have some cards made with the Prancing Pegasus stamp set and beautiful Fairy’s Garden paper pad.
For my first card, I inked up the background with some Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold. Then I splattered on some white pearl watercolor to give it more of a magical feel.
I stamped some of the stars from the same stamp set on the background using the same colors of Distress Oxide inks. They are a little difficult to see in the photos, but it adds a subtle detail.
I colored up the Pegasus with Copic markers and added some sparkly stickles to the wing. I die cut some clouds from my stash and added WOW! Sparkle glitter to the smaller ones.
That frame is from the diagonal paper in the paper pack and it adds just the right touch! I simply used 2 nesting rectangle dies to cut out that frame. I stamped the sentiment on strips of teal paper and popped it up with foam tape. This is for sure a “magical” birthday card that is fit for a princess!
For my second card I knew I wanted that Pegasus to be running on top of a rainbow. So I glittered up a rainbow and added it to a pink polka dot background from the Fairy’s Garden paper.
I colored the Pegasus’ mane, tail, and wing in the same rainbow colors with Copic markers. Those butterflies and leaves are cut from the paper pad as well! I was so excited to see those butterflies in there and they were so perfect for this rainbow card!
I added some clouds to the card and stamped the sentiment “For My Princess” with pink ink.
I added the Pegasus with foam tape to give it more dimension. I also folded up the butterfly wings just a little to so they look like they are flying!
I hope you enjoyed these projects today! I really loved making them. I’ll see you real soon with some more inspiration.
