May’s Flavor of the Month card kit is just beautiful. From the paper to the extras in the Banana Split card kit so many items perfect for creating encouragement cards. I chose to feature the Weather Together collection because I LOVE rainbows! The paper speaks to my childhood memories and the sentiments are just what I am wanting to say to my friends and family at this time.
Starting out with Bristol Smooth cardstock and using Distress Oxide Inks in Weathered Wood & Stormy Sky to create the clouds with the stencil included in May’s Banana Split card kit. I created the image in the center of the card in the following order. (I have to talk myself through this every time I do it.) Because I wanted the cloud to show completely it was stamped first, then masked off, next the rainbow was stamped then masked off. The last step was to stamp the sun. Using Zig Clean Color Markers I colored in all the images. I then almost ruined this one layer card by deciding to add Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker and forgetting that the Zig markers are activated by water. Thankfully I realized it early on and avoiding some strong language in the craft room, ha ha ha! The sentiment was embossed with Navy embossing powder. Cut out the main scene with a stitched rectangle die and placed on a card front size patterned paper from the Weather Together patterned paper.

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! 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!
