I am so grateful that you have stopped by today. Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde sharing a little more inspiration from November’s Flavor of the Month card kit.
I adore this image and the paper included in this collection! At this point this collection has produced two cards and there is enough material left over to produce probably three more. (I liked to use at least three patterns typically so I tend to go through paper quickly.)
Happiness truly is a warm puppy! We added a new addition to our family about 8 weeks ago and she has made us incredibly happy. Our cat has also warmed up to her too. 🙂
Thank you so much for being such a supportive group of crafters, it is always so nice to be able to share a craft you love with others who love it as well. One of my favorite things, especially with cardmaking with the kit, is that we all start with the same ingredients but create such different yet lovely things.
I hope you take some time for yourself and get to create something that will bring you joy.
Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde I have been looking forward to sharing this card with you all! This kit is filled with gorgeous patterned paper, cute images and sweet sentiments.
Here’s how this card came together:
used watercolor paper, the embossing folder that’s in the Banana Split card kit & distress oxide inks to create the heart paper
embossed the sentiment in sparkle embossing powder then cut it out with a sentiment strip die
popped up the sentiment on the edges to keep it level since this card has three layers
Don’t forget to join us this weekend for the blog hop to reveal November’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit. This is the last kit that SFL will be putting out and trust me you do NOT want to miss it! The card kit goes live on November 21st at midnight Eastern. Thank you for joining me today on the blog and I look forward to reading your comments during the hop.
I used collection #1, Thank You So Much, for my card today. I used the Carbon Copy gray cardstock from the kit as my A2 cardbase. I cut the peach polka dot pattern down as my card mat at 4 x 5 1/4 inches. I pulled out one of the floral patterns to layer on top of the polka dots and cut that panel down to 2 3/4 by 4 inches. I used the back side of a scrap from the floral pattern on the left hand side and that piece measured 2 x 2 3/4 inches.
I layered the white sheer ribbon from the collection all the way across the front of my card mat panel. I stamped the thank you sentiment from the Thank You So Much stamp set in this collection on a 1 3/4 inch circle of white cardstock and backed it with a 2 inch scalloped circle of the peach polka dot pattern. I fussy cut out 2 flowers from 2 other floral patterns in this collection to create a little grouping around my sentiment.
I also used the double fish tail Banner Die that comes with the Banana Split kit level to create a little fishtail strip that’s layered on top of the ribbon. I finished my card front off with some white enamel dots from the kit as well!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my sneak peek today! Please be sure to check back each day for more peeks at this month’s kit and come back this Saturday for the blog hop and debut of the full Simply Sentimental card kit!
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde sharing a card I made using several goodies from SFL. This time of year I find myself wanting to make Fall, Halloween, and Christmas cards. What I don’t typically find is enough time, am I right? The card I am sharing with you today has the colors that make me think of Fall and the critters too.
Here is a rundown of what went into making this card:
This card came together very easily and would have been a quick card but I decided to fussy cut out the figures instead of using my Scan n Cut which I almost immediately regretted. Those moose antlers are no joke! I love the way it turned out and look forward to sending it on to some friends.
Thank you for stopping in today, I hope you will make some time for yourself and get creative.
I also used the SFL Sketch Challenge #8 card sketch. You can see my full process video HERE.
The card sketch makes it easy and gives you all the measurements. I used a navy cardstock panel as my mat and then cut the patterned paper into 3 inch strips. I just trimmed those strips down so that the patterned paper would look like it created one solid 3 by 8 inch panel on top of the navy card mat.
I used a 2 3/4 inch stitched circle die to cut out my colored image and then a 3 inch circle die to cut another piece of the navy cardstock to mat my image. This circle then covered the seam where my 2 patterned paper pieces meet up on the card.
I added an orange strip to play off the orange in my colored image and used the sentiment “Happy Pumpkin Spice Season” from the stamp set. I finished off my card with some orange enamel dots left over from a recent Flavor of the Month card kit.
Thanks for checking out my card today! I hope you’re all having a crafty day!
I used the envelopes as the base of my album, adhering the flap of one envelope into another envelope to make a set of pages. I used Art Glitter Glue for this step. You just repeat the process until you have the amount of pages you want. Once you get your last envelope added on, you take the flap from the very first envelope and adhere it down to the very last envelope you added. You can see the full process in the video.
Once my album was put together, I trimmed the patterned paper down to 5 3/8 square for both the covers and inner pages. This allowed a small Kraft border to be visible around my patterned paper. I decorated the pages with the scrap strips I had left from cutting down the 6×6 paper, along with the stamped sentiments and images.
I adhered my decorated pages to the album with Scor-tape. I finished the album off with some sequins throughout, just to add a little pop of bling.
Once I finished the album, I realized I had a bunch of scrap strips leftover, so I decided to make a card to use those pieces up.
I cut down a piece of cardstock to 3 3/4 by 5 inches. I added some adhesive across the whole front of this panel and then started laying the strips down diagonally across my panel. I added a piece of cardstock behind this panel as a card mat. I used one of the At the Beach sentiments that I had stamped but not used for the album as the sentiment for this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed seeing the Golden Beach paper as well as my quick little mini album! Have a great day!
Kim here from @cardmakingblonde here today wishing you Fall Blessings!
Here in Florida we have seen temps dipping into the 80’s so Fall has officially arrived! We joke about it but if you are either from here or if you’ve lived here long enough there really is a change in the feel and smell of the air that tells you Fall is here. I still wish we had the changing leaves but alas, you can’t have it all right?
When I saw that there was a gnome stamp in one of the collections I was in love! I decided to create my card using a grid pattern so I could use several of the patterns. You can watch my full process video HERE.
I used the gnome and the Happy Fall sentiment from the stamp set and then colored them in. I trimmed the gnome piece into a tag for the focal point of my card.
I used a red cardstock card base and then a white cardstock mat behind my pattern paper rectangles. I trimmed each pattern paper down to 1 7/8 by 2 1/2 inches. And then just adhered them in a grid.
I finished off the card with some tan and white twine and tan enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by to see me card today! Be sure to check back here each day this week for more sneak peeks! The full kit reveal will be next Saturday along with the blog hop.
I started with a little diaper fold type pocket. I took the 6×6 piece of paper and folded it in half diagonally. Then I folded the top tip down to the center fold. I folded both of the side tips in towards the middle and then adhered my top flap down over the top of them using some Art Glitter Glue.
The next pocket I made is a double pocket. You can follow the process video for scoring and folding this double pocket. Starting with another 6×6 sheet, I again folded it in half diagonally. I scored at 1/2 inch on either side of that center fold line. I turned my paper a quarter of a turn and scored at 2 3/4 inches in on both sides. I folded up all of my score lines to create the holder. I punched a hole at the top of the holder and used some ribbon and bakers twine to hold it all together.
These little pockets will hold tea bags or Ghiradelli chocolate squares. They would make great little stocking stuffers or coworker treats for the holidays!
Thanks for checking out my project today! I hope you enjoyed this treat holder idea and the cute Christmas Treats paper collection!
