For this first card, I stamped the image on 110lb Neenah Solar White card stock. I am making an A2 size card I used a stitched oval die to cut out a frame for the card. I used a powder blue color card base and cut one of the pieces of pattern paper down to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, so the piece is the size of the card with no borders. I used a stitched oval die to create a frame from the pattern paper. Then I adhered the floral design to the card base and used foam tape to pop up the frame piece and adhered it while lining it up. I stamped the sentiment on the same type of paper and cut the thin strip to about 4 inches and fishtailed the ends. I adhered the sentiment to the card panel toward the bottom leaving some of the frame hole showing on the bottom. I used Crystal Nuvo Drops and some sequins from my stash to finish off the card.
For the second card, I stamped the image on Strathmore Colored Pencil paper, the card is A2 size and I cut the back panel from pattern paper to 4in X 5 1/4in to leave a border from the dusty pink color card base I used. I used a stitched oval die to cut out the image, used “Worn Lipstick” Distress Oxide Ink to give some color just to the outer edge of the oval. Then I cut out an oval the next size up from the same colored pencil paper and layered it behind the oval with the image. I adhered that piece toward the bottom center of the card, stamped a sentiment from the same paper, cut out the strip, fishtailed one end and adhered it to towards the top of the card. I finished off the card by adding some Crystal Nuvo Drops.
For my final card, I stamped the image on Strathmore Colored Pencil paper, the card is A2 size and I cut the back panel from pattern paper to 4in X 5 1/4in to leave a border from the Neenah Solar White card base I used. I then used strips to crisscross measuring 2in X 4 1/4in and 1 3/4in X 5 1/2in. The image I cut down to 2 1/2in X 3 3/4in and adhered it to a rectangle piece measuring 3 1/4 X 4 1/2in. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the image paper and finished it off with some Nuvo Stone Drops.

Hi Everyone! Luci here with a few cards using the Picket Fence Studios “String of Lights” stamp set.
I love how simple yet lovely these cards were!
To start I picked out A2 size card bases from my stash, cut down white cardstock panels to 4 X 5 1/4 inches. Then I stamped the images and sentiment together using my Mini Misti and Brutus Monroe embossing ink. I picked red, silver, gold, and green embossing powders and heat embossed them. I adhered the card panels to the card bases. Then I simply added some embellishments for one I used sequins from an old SFL FOTM card kit and the rest I used Nuvo Crystal Nuvo Drops, the colors I used were Autumn Red and Silver Lining. Easy Peasy right!
Both of these are A2 size cards or 4 1/4 in. X 5 1/2 in. and both card bases are from my stash.
For the first card, I used the “Wild Animals Paper Pad” and used the sheet as a panel that was cut to 4 in. X 5 1/4 in. I colored the chameleon and flower with Studio 71 alcohol markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out. I cut out a circle with a stitched circle die and then put it on overlapping the panel and cut off the end. I used the same paper as the circle to heat emboss the sentiment, and I popped up both the chameleon and sentiment. On the inside of the card, I added another sentiment from the stamp set that said: “Don’t ever change”. I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on the chameleon image.
For the next card, I blended Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, and Peeled Paint, over the Palm Leaf stencil and a piece of the pattern paper from the “Wild Animals” paper pad. I love how it turned out! I cut it down to 4 in. X 5 1/4 in. I stamped the sentiments from the stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Popped on the Doodle Pop Koala and used a few sequins from a previous FOTM kit.
Both of these are A2 size cards or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. I blended Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet and for the white card, I used Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans for the body. After I blended the oxides over the stencil on the white card I cut out a mask so I could add the blues to the body. I used a couple different gel pen colors for the beak area but really didn’t like how that turned out, I finally went over it in black gel pen. I added a sentiment to a white strip that was the same width as the card. and I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on every feather and the body. For the black card after I blended the oxide inks over the stencil I used clear shimmer spray over the entire card and the added a fishtailed banner the same width as the card with a sentiment.
Not all of our cards need to take hours, sometimes you just need a quick card to say Hey! This card is a standard A2 size card or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch. I cut out a piece of the galaxy paper to 4 X 5 1/4 for the front panel, I used a circle die to cut out a piece of scrap patterned scrap paper, I did end up taking another scrap piece of cardstock die-cut it with the same circle just to give it some more stability. Then I added the lounge chair sticker to the die cut circle and a sentiment sticker that says “On Lake Time”. On the inside I used the sentiment stamp “is my favorite place to be from Critter Campout! And that’s it, easy peasy!

Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a few cards using the Pink & Main “Turtley Amazing” stamp set. Be sure to check out the video for all the details HERE!
I colored the images on the last two cards with Studio 71 by Darice alcohol markers. I had heard good reviews on them and decided to pick up a set with 48 markers. Check out the video for my thoughts.
The first card is an A2 size 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 and I used “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink to create the background on a 4 in. square piece of white cardstock. For the stamping I used Hero Arts Charcoal ink and the Gina K “Wreath Builder“. I stamped the sentiment with Brutus Monroe embossing ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I placed the panel on a black card base and finished it off with a few sequins, clear enamel dots, Ranger “Glossy Accents” on the turtle shells, and a Sakura “Black Glaze Pen” on the turtles eyes.
My second card is a 4 1/2 square card. I used all of the small images with the wreath builder to create the background on a 4 in piece of white cardstock. The inks I used were Hero Arts Mulled Wine, Moss, Soft Cantaloupe, and Lawn Fawn Merman. I added two of the turtles I colored. For the card base and sentiment strip I used a burnt orange piece of card stock from my stash. I stamped the sentiment with VeraFine Onyx Black ink and I finished the card by adding glossy accents to the turtle shells and for the eyes the glaze pen.
My final card I used the Scrapping for Less “Water Patterns” 6X6 paper pad to create a background along with a piece of kraft cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and I heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I placed the colored images around the background and finished it with glossy accents to the turtle shells, a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on the small images and for the eyes the glaze pen.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a few cards made with the Lawn Fawn Believe in Yourself Stamp Set. I colored this little cutie with Copic Markers and all of the papers used were from the Lawn Fawn 6X6 paper pad Knock On Wood. I used the Lawn Fawn die sets Spring Sprig and Meadow Borders, the Paper Smooches Loopy Leaf die, and two stitched circle dies. For the sentiments I used Unicorn White from Hero Arts and VersaFine Onyx Black ink, and I heat embossed the Unicorn White with Wow white embossing powder. I finished off the cards with some Nuvo Dream Drops in Dragon Scales. Check out the video HERE for all the details.
