It’s Sneak Peek Week!! I’m super excited to share this card with you. I love how bright the pattern paper is and this is the sweetest Big Foot! I stamped out the image with Copic friendly ink and colored with warm gray markers. I added lots of sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. I used the Lemon Drop card stock for my card base and the mat my pattern paper so they wouldn’t blend together.
I chose to decorate the inside by adding a strip of pattern paper, the sentiment and stamped the image again with Memento London Fog Ink.
Stay tuned for more sneak peeks this week and the full reveal will be Saturday, May 30 at 12:00am!
Hello Everyone! Today I finished up Collection 3 from the April Flavor of the Month Card Kit! For 2 of these cards I was inspired by fellow design team member Stacy!
I cut down the yellow pattern paper for my main panel and grabbed 2 scraps to line on the bottom. I stamped the image out and die cut with a circle die. I saw that Stacy had use Distress Ink for this image on one of her cards and I LOVED the look so I did that here. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then gathered the twine and tried to tie int he center for a messy bow and used Range Multi Matte Medium to adhere it to my card. As the card sat on my desk, I kept thinking I needed a little something more so I added the 3 enamel dots to the upper, right corner of the card.
This card is VERY similar to card one. I didn’t have a long enough scrap for the bottom of the card so I used a stitched sentient die with a fishtail end. I popped the image up on foam adhesive and brought in more enamel dots .
This card it nothing like how I imaged it would be when I started. I used a larger “scrap” to die cut the Camera with flowers die that was found in the banana split portion of the kit. I added that piece to some yellow pattern paper from the collection with liquid glue – and what a mess I made!! There was so much glue I either had to scrap the piece or figure out how to cover it up. I decided to press on and cover it up. I used Nuvo drops to basically “color” the piece. I used Nuvo Glitter Drops in Yellow Bird for the flower pieces, Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green for the leaves and the Camera piece I used Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.
This is the last card I made from this collection. I decided to try coloring the image with Copic Markers (these types of images are a little intimidating for me because I tend to be too heavy handed and my colors bleed so I tried to approach the coloring of this image by not trying so hard – and I think it worked.) I used up most of the left over pieces of pattern paper and also added the last 2 enamel dots I received in this collection.
The process video can be found HERE at the the SFL YouTube Channel.
The April 2020 Flavor of the Month Card Kit is sold out however the paper pads from the kit are available for individual sale (or if you just NEED MORE!?)
It’s Sneak Peek Week!! How cute is this travel paper and this adorable girl on the scooter? This is a peek from Collection 2.
For this card I chose 2 pattern papers. The more colorful one I used as the main panel. I cut that with a stitched rectangle die. In the lower right hand corner I added another pattern paper which I cut with a mini scallop stitched circle die and trimmed off the excess.
When I started to put the card together, I realized the second pattern paper needed a mat to separate it from the more colorful piece. I grabbed black card stock for a mat and used my scissors to carefully follow the circle.
I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set found in collection 2 and stamped that on a stitched fishtail sentiment strip I had in my stash. I used a little Barn Door Distress Ink around the top, bottom and right side.
To finish the card, I added 3 small enamel dots from the card kit and a little Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush on the scooter.
Stay tuned all week for more sneak peeks and stay up late Friday for the full reveal at 12:00am Saturday, April 26.
Hello Everyone! I’m continuing to work with my SFL March FOTM Card Kit. Today I aimed for another 4 cards 1 mini collection and to my surprise… I made 6! The ephemera in this collection helped aid with many choices for card making!
This ephemera piece seemed a little big for the front of the card, so I lined the fence pieces with the bottom of the card base and trimmed off the excess. I also chose the 3 remaining floral ephemera pieces and tucked them behind the fence using Ranger Multi Matte Medium and foam adhesive. I did a little stamp surgery and trimmed the Hello Spring Sentiment from the florals around it so I would just have the sentiment. I stamped it with black ink and used a mini scallop oval die to cut the sentiment out and added it to the card with foam adhesive. I then added all the pink, matte enamel dots from the collection onto the front.
This card was simple – once I figured out what I wanted to do! I used some purple paper from my stash and die cut it with a scallop border die and added it between the 2 patterns of paper. I then added 2 lady bugs directly onto the card and the middle one is popped upon foam adhesive. I took another sentiment from the stamp set, stamped it with black Ink and die cut that with a mini scallop circle die.
I love, love, love this bunny paper. I took the larger piece I had cut and lined it up on the right of the card panel. I also used a scrap of the purple grid pattern paper to add to the left. I used this large ephemera piece as the focal point and adhered it with foam adhesive. The sentiment is another one from the stamp set, this time I used a fishtail sentiment banner die.
How lucky this bunny paper had these 2 pieces left – 1 from each color. I stamped the bunny image from the stamp set with blue ink that matches the card base and added dash lines around the circle. I stamped the sentiment “Hi” also from the stamp set and added a few more pink, matte enamel dots.
This card was one of my favorites. I stamped the bunny image with a light pink ink and I didn’t wiped the stamp very well after using the blue so it created this really pretty purple color! I then used more of the pink ink and added some flicks of ink onto that corner. I added the 2 pieces of pattern paper (the purple piece with foam adhesive) and stamped the Hello Spring sentiment next to the bunny!
This card came out way better than I thought when I first started! I had the triangle piece already trim that way so I added that to the card and worked around that. I found 3 scraps that I trimmed down to follow the top border and triangular piece below. I added another pink bunny (with traces of blue) onto a piece of white card stock that I cut with a mini scallop circle die AND I added the remaining 2 enamel dots!
SIX CARDS – I was able to create another 6 cards for a total of 7. I had a few small scraps left and the stamp set to add to my stash.

Hello Everyone! For today’s blog post , I chose to grab Collection 3 (my favorite from the March kit) and try to make 4 cards. I managed to make FIVE!!
My inspiration for this collection was “1 Sheet Wonder” cards. I started by taking the pattern paper I had left and trimming them down to a few different sizes. Here are the cards…
Card 1 –
The pieces of pattern paper I have are not large enough to create a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel. I used the card base as a “mat” for the pattern paper and added one larger pieces and a small strip. I stamped the image from the stamp set with MFT Extreme Black Ink and cut with a circle die. I took a light blue card stock from my stash and used a mini scallop stitched die to cut a circle just a bit larger than the image and added that the the center of the pattern paper. I finished this card by adding a few sequins from the pack found in the Banana Split pack from this kit.
Card 2 –
I arranged smaller pieces of pattern paper onto a card base and then die cut the greenery die three times to add to the card. I added Distress Ink to the die cuts (Peeled Paint and Gathered Twigs). I chose the sentiment “Follow your Dreams” found in the stamp set. I used the Quickie Glue Roller Pen to adhere these pieces to the card base. (This glue does require an extra minute or 2 to dry).
Card 3 –
I used a longer piece of pattern paper and lined that up with the left side of the card. I then adhered a shorter, wider piece over the top. I trimmed a green pattern paper into a thin piece and used that between the 2 patterns. I did the same with the image on the front as I did in card one. I added that to the card with foam adhesive. This card was finished by adding 3 buttons from the pack of buttons that come from this kit to the upper left.
Card 4 –
For this card, I took a piece of pattern paper that was approximately 3×6 and cut it in half. I added 1 piece to the left and 1 piece to the right. In the middle, I added the remainder of the green pattern paper. I then took a square piece and trimmed it just a little to sit in a diamond shape in the center of the card. In the center of that card, I added a small, square piece. In the center of that I added the “Follow your dreams” sentiment on a small, mini scallop stitched circle die cut. I finished this card by adding sequins to the card with Ranger Muti Medium Matte adhesive.
Card 5 –
I call this the scraps of scraps card! I took a square card base that was from my stash and arranged the rest of the scraps. I used some thin peel off stickers from a previous card kit to add between the different patterns. I then added the image to the card in the same style as card 1 and added sequins.
Hello Everyone! Today I am sharing a card from Collection 3 – SFL Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
Today I used sequins found in the Banana Split pack to make a shaker card. I stamped out the image from the stamp set onto acetate and centered that on this pretty, floral pattern paper. I used a stitched scalloped border die and trimmed down another piece of pattern paper to add just below the shaker circle and added the twine found in the collection around just above. To finish the front of the card, I added a button – also found in the collection.
The inside is simply stamped with a “Thank You” sentiment and butterfly from the stamp set.
Check back each day for another sneak peek and the full reveal on Saturday, March 28 at 12:00am. I’ll be staying up late on Friday to see all the inspiration from the Blog Hop!
Hello Everyone! Today I made 4 more cards using Collection 3 from the February Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I wanted to challenge myself to finish using the card kit so I started with Collection 3. I’ve already made 2 other cards using this collection; so I made a total of 6 cards with this one collection.
I did not use the stamp set with day’s cards; but I used the remaining pattern paper, the remaining ephemera, and all the enamel dots! (which I have a habit of hoarding).
