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!
Hey there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with an adorable card using the sweetest little camper set called Happy Camper from Pink & Main. I paired this sweet set with the beautiful Galaxy Foil papers also from Pink & Main… these two products were literally made for each other!!
I’ve been wanting to make a long card… one that will fit in a #10 envelope. I love to change things up sometimes and this size of card is fun to play with! I started with a 8-1/2 x 11″ piece of kraft card stock. I trimmed it down to 8-1/2 x 8″ and then on the 8″ side, I scored it right in the middle at 4″… giving me a 8-1/2 x 4″ card base. A #10 envelope is actually larger, measuring at 4-1/8 x 9-1/2″ so you could actually make a larger card if you’d like. This was just the size I decided to go with.
I had my card base and I had picked out my Galaxy Foil paper… but then I realized my paper was only 6″ so how do I make a long card with this short patterned paper. Well, I found that Gina K.’s Plum Punch card stock coordinated with the Galaxy Foil paper and that helped to fill in the rest of my background. And to finish off my scene, I die cut some Gina K. Grass Green card stock using the Grassy Border die from Lawn Fawn. I then adhered my grass layers to the plum card stock being sure to not glue down the top layer of grass blades so I could tuck in my car and camper.
Speaking of… how adorable is this car and camper!! They were so much fun to color!! I love all the scallops and swirls… so fun!! There are so many cute images in this set too! I just love that little backpack… it reminded me of a denim backpack that I had as a kid so I colored it to look like it, except mine was green. 🙂 How cute is that sentiment ‘Happy trails!’… I thought this would be a cute card to send to someone going out on an adventure maybe camping or taking an RV around the country seeing all the sights!
Oh my goodness… these adorable bears!! I love their cute faces! I had a blast coloring them too. They look ready to enjoy some camping fun. And that crown on the glamping girl bear… love!!!
I finished off the card with some kraft twine… it filled in that empty space in that top right corner… and I think it fits with the whole camping/outdoors theme. I used a bunch of Copic markers to color in the images… here they are:
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 I made using the Pink and Main “Turtley Awesome” stamp set! I made some fun backgrounds from three embossing folders, a stencil, and “Distress Inks” to use with images from the stamp set. Carta Bella Ogee, Darice, and Tim Holtz The images are stamped with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiments with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and finished off the cards with Glossy Accents, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, Nuvo Dream Drops, and a black gel pen.

I love to use small images in a stamp set to create a background, so I decided to create a wreath type background with the small floral stamps. I used heavy 110lb cardstock and alcohol marker safe ink to stamp my images. One tip to remember – in order for this process to work your cardstock needs to be square. I positioned the bouquet style stamp and stamped it and then turned my cardstock in my MISTI and stamped again. I repeated this twice more until I had stamped four times. I repeated with the other stamps.
I colored with my Spectrum Noir Triblend alcohol markers. I used Dull Green, Light Green, Ice Blue, Coral, Purple, and Citrus blends to color my flowers. I decided I wanted to add the fawn image, so I stamped her and colored her with the Earth Brown and Golden Brown blends with a bit of Light Pink for her eyelids and ears.
To finish off the card I stamped the banner image with gray ink and stamped my sentiment with Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink. I hope you’ll watch my video below to see just how I created this card!
Hi! Today I’m showing you two ways to use masking to create an *almost* one layer card! I used the Graduation Boy stamp set from Dreamland Crafts and you can get yours at the Scrapping for Less store!
I started by stamping the boy from the Graduation Boy stamp set onto a piece of watercolor cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I heat embossed it so that I could do some watercoloring with my Sakura Koi watercolor set. Once my watercoloring was done I heat set the paint completely. I used a Versamarker (Versamark ink in pen form) and colored all over the colored image and embossed it with clear powder. I repeated the process again so that I would have more dimension to my clear embossing. This is one of my favorite ways to emboss! There’s no need to fussy cut a mask and no wait for drying time!
I used a piece of Inkadinkado masking paper and sketched a simple hill shape and cut along my sketch line. I used the top piece to mask off the upper portion of my card so that the hill section of my cardstock is exposed. I used two colors of green Distress Ink – dark at the top and lighter at the bottom. Then I dried the ink with my heat gun and added the other portion of my masking paper to the cardstock so that the green hill is covered.
I grabbed the Cloud stencil from Pink & Main and some Distress Ink and created my cloudy background. It’s super easy since I didn’t have to mask off my colored image – I just blended the ink right across my heat embossed image! I used a stitched rectangle die to cut down my panel and adhered it to a card base! You can watch my process video below!
I colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out with my Scan N Cut.
Then I used a cloud stencil to create the background panel with Distress Oxide Inks. I cut the panel out with a stitched wonky die to make it 4″ X 5 1/4″.
I just used a tape roll to draw a half circle and checked out a photo online to make the world, I used distress oxides to make color the water and then a water brush and some Lucky Clover to paint in the land. I popped that up with some fun foam and stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added it to the bottom of the panel.
I used a card base I had in a pale green color to accent the land from the world. I placed the images on the panel added some iridescent sequins and used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on the horses hair to finish off the card.
Hi, it’s Jenn from Scrapbena Creations. Today I am sharing a clean and simple card using Life Is A Circus by Pink and Main. I coloured the images using Spectrum Noir markers and used up some older paper in my stash to complete the card.
Have a fantastic day and happy crafting! Jenn xO

Hi, everyone! Today I’m making a clean and simple masked background card with the Need Coffee stamp set from Pink & Main for Scrapping for Less! This girl looks just like me in the morning! Haha! I fell in love with her bunny slippers! Watch the video at the end of this post for my process!
Isn’t the card so cute! I created a quick and easy background by die cutting a piece of kraft cardstock with a stitched rectangle die that would be slightly smaller than my card base. Then I used 1/4 inch skinny masking tape (but you could use skinny washi tape) and used my grid mat to space the strips of masking tape 1/4 inch apart. Once I had my panel covered with the tape I used a foam blender to blend on some white pigment ink. I tried to keep the ink concentrated near the bottom and fading out towards the top left.
I stamped out the image from the Pink & Main Need Coffee stamp set with Copic safe ink and colored her using super basic two color blending for most of the colors. I used a variety of Copic markers and some Spectrum Noir markers. I snapped a photo of the markers I used so you can easily copy my coloring blends if you’d like to!
I mounted my inked background onto a white card base and used foam tape to pop up my colored image. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white cardstock and trimmed the edge into a banner and mounted it with foam tape. I thought it needed a little finishing touch, so I added some embellishments with my White Blizzard Nuvo drops! Check out my process in the video below!
