Stamped the image in Lawn Fawn pigment ink (2x), stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Black Onyx ink.
This week is full of sneak peeks so have a look before you go and don’t forget to come back this weekend to hop along with us! Thank you so much for stopping in today. Please take care of each of other, wash your hands, and keep on crafting!
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with some further inspiration created using February’s card kit. I am in love with the papers, the ephemera and I CANNOT STOP EMBOSSING THESE IMAGES! I had to literally make myself get up from my desk and stop making cards because it was time to get dinner started. Several hours had gone by and I was so busy creating I didn’t realize how much time had passed. So here they are I hope you enjoy them and I hope you grab yours before they are gone!
This gal is just stunning, whether inked, embossed or colored this stamp set is incredibly versatile. The paper is beautiful and feminine and she looks stunning in gold!
Shaker cards are fun and the paper in this collection takes the cupcake! I wanted to show off the paper and could not bear to cover it up and I thought creating a shaker card with this scalloped frame would be a great way to do that. Using Nuvo drops I added a little sparkle and interest to the wood icon cupcake, teapot and cup of tea. Filled the shaker with sequins of colors that are in the paper.
Thank you so much for taking a little time today to come see what we are up to over here at SFL. We are having so much fun with this kit over here on the blog, if you haven’t seen it already take a peek at past blog posts for even more inspiration. My fellow design teammates are incredibly talented!
This is an A2 size card or 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches. I stamped and the puppy images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on some of the pattern paper and fussy cut them out. I popped them up with some foam tape.
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 I used Distress Oxide Inks to blend the sky (Tumbled Glass) and road (Black Soot & Iced Spruce), and I used a cloud stencil for the sky. I colored the grass area, tree, and bench with Copic markers and I stamped the grass sections from the stamp set with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink. I cut the panel down to 5 1/4 X 3 3/4 inches.
I cut a piece of the pattern paper to 5 3/8 X 4 1/8 inches for the back panel.
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 stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, on a piece of white cardstock. I used my Misti to position the stamps to fit. By using a stamping platform I was able to get the sentiment positioned and stamped. Then I cut it down to 1/2 inch wide and about 3 inches long, to finish it off I popped it up with foam tape and fishtailed the one end.
I used a black gel pen for the one puppy’s nose and eyes, and then cut out the bow from pattern paper after I stamped just that small section!

What better way to ring in the new year than by introducing an all new release from SFL!

Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde, it’s sneak peek week over at SFL and I am super excited to share the card I made from one of the collections in December’s Flavor of the Month card kit! The stamp set is called Puppy Hugs & Kisses and features adorable images of a puppy and some sweet sentiments.
Hello everyone! Jackie here from Jackie’s Craft Table. I hope you’re all having a fun holiday season! I’m taking a break from Holiday Card crafting to create a fabulous friendship card!
The stamp set I’m using is calledGirlfriends from Art Impressions, and I’m also using some chevron pattern paper from Scrapping for Less calledFairy’s Garden.
I decided to pull out my Prismacolor pencils to color in these ladies. I love AI stamps–they’re quirky and cute. They also provide you with a great example on the packaging of how to color in their images. For the most part I used their example as my inspiration, but I did change up the colors to match the cheery chevron pattern paper.
I colored them in pretty simply. Below you’ll see a list of the pencils I used. After I finished my coloring, I pulled out my Gamsol which is an odorless mineral spirit. I dipped a paper stump into the Gamsol and gently blended my colored pencil work. It breaks down the wax from the pencils and smooths out the coloring. It also helps to brighten the colors.
Both Ladies – Skin: Beige 977 & Beige Sienna 1080, Hair: Sienna Brown 945 & Chocolate 1082, Lips: Process Red 994, Cheeks: Magenta 930
Lady on Left – Sweater: Light Aqua 992 & Muted Turquois 1088, Pants: Blush 928 & Clay Rose 1017, Shirt: 50% Cool Grey 1063, Shoes: Goldenrod 1034
Lady on Right – Sweater & Shoes: Apple Green 912 & Dark Green 908, Pants: 50% Cool Grey 1063
To pull this card together, I used a scalloped oval die to cut out my image and added some foam tape behind it. I used a banner die to cut out the chevron pattern paper, and I adhered everything down onto a piece of green card stock. This is a top-folding, A2 sized card. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of pink card stock and adhered that over my oval. I love the sentiments in this set–so funny and cute! For a touch of sparkle I added some green gems diagonally across the card.
Hello and Season’s Greetings to you all! I hope you are having a good December and are busy making memories with friends and loved ones. Today I want to share with you a little card with a grande message. ( I know, I know but I love punny.)Grande-Sized Love from My Favorite Things clear stamp.
This pure innocence girl from MFTis incredibly versatile. You could use it for a thank you card, birthday card, I love you card and of course she would be adorable on a card containing a gift card especially if that gift card was for a place that served coffee. I kept things pretty simple wanting her to take center stage on the card. Here is the run down of what I did and what I used to do it:
This card is bright and cheery and a perfect thank you for me to give to a fellow coffee lover who really is always there to pick me up. I really do love the pure innocence collection from My Favorite Things and am so excited to add this little gal to my collection. Thank you for spending some time with me today on the blog and hope you are carving out a little time for yourself to do something crafty.
Hey fellow crafters! Kim here with a quick card using SFL’s Arctic Sentiments stamp setand Carta Bella’s Christmas paper pad. This little moose is just so darling I had to color him and give him center stage. It’s funny I was so excited to put him in the center of the circle that I forgot to put a shadow underneath him to ground him and I am just now realizing that he’s floating in that circle. I’ll have to fix that…oops! I guess there is always tweaking that can be done right?
For this little moose I stamped him with Memento Dye Ink in Tuxedo Blackthen colored him with Prismacolor pencils. I am still learning with my pencils so when I color with pencils I don’t really do a lot of blending I just color. This card came together quickly which isn’t always the case but sometimes it’s nice to have the ones that are cute and quick because if you are anything like me you are still making Christmas cards even into the middle or maybe late December.
Hope your holiday season has kicked off brilliantly and you are getting in some extra time with friends and loved ones. Take care and do a little something crafty for yourself!
Hello my crafty friends! It’s Kim here with a stamp set that I have been chomping at the bit to use! The images are the epitome of cozy and of all days here in Florida it is actually cold today! High of 68 degrees (yes that’s cold here). So here’s a run down of what I did with today’s card:
cut down my shiplap paper to 4″x5 1/4″ and adhered it onto the Nordic Winter sheet with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive (QUICK TIP: keep a sewing needle or strait pin nearby to unclog the tip)
used a rounded stitched rectangle die to cut out the image
finished by adding the sentiment in Versafine Ink and adding Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen
This was my first attempt at a “no line” coloring and I’m liking how it turned out so I definitely think I will try again, practice makes perfect, right? Thank you so much for stopping in and checking out this card. I hope you get the chance to get crafty today!
