Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde bringing you a card made using one of the cutest encouraging stamp sets I’ve ever used! “Balloon Ride” from Paperie Ink has several critters to choose from and enough hot air balloons to do a little balloon like I did or to do an entire scene.
Here’s how this card came together:

I really enjoyed using this stamp set, I always know I have my hands on a good stamp set when as I am working with it for one card I already begin thinking of what I want to do with it for my next card.
Thank you for joining me today on the blog and taking a closer look at Paperie Ink’s “Balloon Ride.” I hope you get any encouragement you may be needing today and also take a minute to encourage another.
The patterns in this collection are so beautiful they don’t need a whole lot of extras. They’re stunning enough on their own.
I used a sentiment stamp set by The Greeting Farm and various sizes of EK Success Circle punches, both from my stash. The glitter strip is a peel off from Love From Lizi, also from my stash. Tangy Orange Cardstock from Scrapping for Less layers the pattern papers beautifully.
Hello Everyone and Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a Memory Dex card I made using several SFL products! First I die cut 100lb white card stock for my “base” using the “Create a dex” Barn die. I wanted a gold glitter edge that matches some of the “gold glitter” in the Bird Talk pattern paper that I chose to use for this project so I used Versamark Ink and a gold glitter embossing powder. I heat set that and put aside to cool. I then die cut “GO Wild” from a piece of pattern paper from the same pad and black card stock. I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to adhere the pattern paper words offset onto the black card stock words.
I put the Memory Dex card together and wanted an image to fill the space on the right. I chose one of the bird images from the “Bird Talk” stamp set; I stamped it with Copic Friendly Ink and colored with Copic markers. I fussy cut the image and added to the Memory Dex with foam adhesive. All that was left is adding a little Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush to the bird and 3 dots using Nuvo Crystal Drops in the color Dandelion.
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.
Happy Monday! As Fall proceeds at rapid speed, I’m reminded it’s time to think about Holiday Gifts. One of the things I like to do is make blank card sets for friends/family/co-workers. These sets are always welcomed and a great way to participate in inexpensive gift exchanges, Secret Santa or White Elephant type events.
Do you make card sets for gifts? I used to worry about the number of cards in a set, but I soon realized those I gift them to, do not care and it’s less stressful for me! Thank You So Much for stopping by! Have a great week!
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!
Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde sharing with you one of my all time favorite SFL stamps “Teresa Talks Fall”. So many things to love about this time of year: pumpkin flavored everything, cooler air (in Florida we don’t get crisp air until at least January), & Fall decorations.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life and today I have a Never-Ending Fun Fold Card I used the “Give A Hoot?” and “Teresa Talks Fall” stamp sets available at the store and Cozy Fall paper pad.
Be sure to check out the video HERE for the details!
Happy Fall! It’s a beautiful warm and breezy day here in Minnesota. The leaves are turning beautiful colors of orange, yellow and dark reds. And all I can think about is making Christmas cards!! Go figure!
