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.
Be sure to check out the video HERE for the details!
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!
LeeAnn here with another card using the super awesome Arctic Animals kit from Scrapping For Less. This kit went live yesterday and there is a blog hop going on right now, so please be sure to play along right here!!!
In the mean time I just had to stop by with another card I made using these cute little critters.
Now as you can see my cute penguins are peaking out from behind the igloo as the awesome little bear is splashing by. Well, the sentiment “Missing You is Unbearable” just seemed to fit since Penguins and Polar Bears are literally POLAR OPPOSITES. With the Polar Bears living up near the Arctic Circle in the Northern Hemisphere and the Penguins down in the Southern Hemisphere along the coast of Antarctica and the Galapagos Islands. (bet ya didn’t think you were going to get a science lesson huh). Some trivia like this I enjoy.
How I made my card… The paper is part of Collection 1 from the kit, special edition by Alexandra Ranke. The igloo is from Collection 4 Arctic Animals by LDRS. The penguins, bear and floating ice are from Collection 3 by Pink & Main. The Sentiment is from the Scrapping For Less Arctic Sentiments set which is from the Banana Split Level.
Please follow along with Scrapping For Less on All Social Media Outlets.

Today we are going to share with you an adorable stamp set from Pink & Main, “Nice List”. Pink & Main has done it again! This stamp set is as adorable as it is versatile. The card that Teresa made features Santa checking out his list and at the same time she has created a shaker card and shown off some truly gorgeous paper. Santa is a perfect addition to this card that I think looks elegant and whimsical. If you take a look at the entire stamp set of Pink & Main’s “Nice List” you will get to see all the other figures that are on this stamp. From creating a scene to baby’s first Christmas there are so many choices with this stamp and it comes with three sentiments as well.
