The rubber stamp was stamped with Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and the colored with Copic Markers. Since this was more of a scene stamp, I knew I wasn’t going to be cutting the image out (of course I could have, but I really like the flying leaves). I used modified rectangle die to cut my “scene” and used a slightly larger one to cut the solid paper (found in the Fall Break paper pad) to make a mat.
I had SUCH a hard time deciding which pattern paper to use. My focal point takes up a large portion of the front so I knew I wanted a small pattern. I also wanted pumpkins or leaves. It seems so silly to spend so much time finding the right piece of pattern paper but I ended up taking my stitched rectangle die to each piece of pattern paper – put the scene piece in the die to a REALLY good idea of what the card will look like. It came down to 2 patterns that I liked so I decided to use both!
I used the super small print for the front panel and the leaves for the inside of the card. I decided there wasn’t much room left on the front for the sentiment so I would need to stamped on the inside if the card. I took a scrap of white card stock and die cut a stitched, scalloped circle and stamped the sentiment in the center of the circle. I finished the front with a little shimmer using a clear glitter brush.
What do you think? Do you like the pattern paper on the inside as well?
Thank You all so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoy and get inspired.
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.
Hello Everyone! It’s Christine with Pattercrafts here to give you a sneak peek of the Scrapping for Less Flavor of the Month June 2019 Card Kit!
I think I tried to squeeze all that is included in this collection onto this card! First I trimmed down 2 of the pattern papers using a stitched rectangle die and a scallop border die from my stash. When using 2 different pattern papers I like to add a little interest between the two patterns. The paper is busy and I didn’t want this turtle to get lost so I grabbed a tag that was laying on my desk from a previous project. The tag was a great excuse to grab the bubble stencil and some Peacock Feather distress ink. This stencil was perfect and I loved the variety of sizes in the bubbles; when I was done with the stenciling, I brushed the edges of the tag with the distress ink. I put the tag aside to dry and stamped out this really cute turtle from the stamp set included in the collection. I used copic markers to color the turtle then used Wink of Stella glitter brush all over the entire image.
To finish my card, I grabbed some twine from my stash to add to the tag – it was also a great way to tie on one of the metal charms. I popped the turtle with some foam adhesive and then used clear Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a little dimension to the spots on the turtle’s shell.
