Teresa here today with a sweet fall card using an adorable stamp set from Stampendous and some glorious fall paper by Scrapping for Less.
I just arrived home around 11:30 PM this past Tuesday evening from an unexpected week long trip to Oregon to help with my two little grandsons while my daughter’s partner was out of town. (I can’t help but insert some cuteness!) Well a 2.5 and 1.5 yr old are energy laden enough to exhaust this “Amma” (grandma). Top that off with traveling from the West coast to the East…whew what a trip.
So, because of all that I needed a quick but adorable card for today’s post. So glad this “Sheetload of Cards” from Call Me Crafty Al’s YouTube channel was sitting on my desk. (I will be doing a post (or video) soon with this month’s sheet load.) While looking through my stamp stash I just knew I had to use this Stampendous set before it was too late to use it.
Hey everybody! If you enjoy making Christmas cards then it’s never too early to get a start and if you enjoy sending a lot of Christmas cards then the earlier you start the less stressed you’ll be. This Sloth Christmas stamp by Stampendous is all about taking it easy through the holiday season. So here’s a run down of my card with this cute little sloth:
patterned paper from Carta Bella’s Christmas collection
stamped in memento ink Rich Cocoa
colored with Copic markers as follows: For the sloth’s body E79, E59, E29, E34 (also used E34 for his face and nose.) Hat R24, R29. String of lights R46, R24, Y13, Y15, YR04, YR18, G09, G05, B21, B29, BG99 for tops of lights. Leaves YG23, YG13
the sentiment is stamped in versa mark ink and then used Wow! Embossing powder in black fine detail and hit it with a heat gun
The circle that slot figure and leaves are adhered to is a 3″ circle and the fishtailed flag is 2.5″x 4″
filled in the white parts of the hat with Stickles Frosted Lace
added glossy accents to the Christmas lights and his little nose
So that’s this week’s card with Christmas Sloth by Stampendous. Thanks so much for stopping by and seeing what we have in store for you. Don’t forget about the big sale going on now while Teresa is off visiting her sweet Grandbabies! Have a great weekend and I hope you get to do something fun!
Hello Everyone! I don’t know about you but I love making my own gift tags. I also have a lot of young nieces and how cute is this Unicorn Christmas Stamp by Stampendous?
For these tags I cut out 6 tags from 110 lb white card stock. I also went through my Card Kit stash from last year and pulled out these scrap papers to cut with the tag die. Any tag die will work – there are so many out there. I then just layered that pattern paper onto the white tags with an adhesive tape runner. (any will work – here’s a link to something similar)
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here with a super quick Christmas card using just a few supplies and a fabulous sentiment stamp by Stampendous called Christmas Sky.
This card could be easily duplicated and with a slight change of colors, be made uniquely for each recipient. I stamped the wonderful sentiment from the Christmas Sky set using VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine black embossing powder.
I blended over the card stock with Stormy Sky and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide inks. I die cut the panel with the Eyelet Elegance Rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs and set it aside.
I wanted to keep my card base simple so I ran a white cardfront measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ through my Big Shot with a snowflake embossing folder. I trimmed it down to 4 x 5-1/4″ and wrapped it with a pretty white ribbon. I adhered the snowflake layer to a white card base using Gina K. Connect liquid glue.
I then popped up the main panel using foam squares. To finish off the card I added a bunch of Simply White Nuvo drops. A simple card design just perfect for multiple cards! I think this would look lovely in purples and blues and even pinks. What do you think? The Christmas Sky set isn’t available in the Scrapping for Less shop, but I found a couple of cute scene building sets with fun sentiments that would work with this design… Here Comes Santa Claus by My Favorite Things and Merry Christmas Greeting by My Favorite Things.
Kim here today with a quick card and an image that does all the heavy lifting for you! I used the Fall Arrangement stamp from Stampendous and created a card a bit smaller than a typical A2 size. When I added the card to my card front there was some empty space left at the top that I wasn’t crazy about so I decided to make the card itself smaller.
I really love this arrangement the flowers and the pumpkin are just so pretty that once I added the sentiment I didn’t feel it needed anything else and couldn’t believe how quickly this card came together for me. I am also toying with the idea of coloring this same image on Kraft cardstock, I think that will be really pretty as well.
This entry is short and simple but also was the making of this card and sometimes that is exactly what we need, just a few minutes to push the world away and make something pretty! I hope you get the chance to make something or do something that you enjoy today. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great rest of your weekend!
Hello my friends! It’s Stacy here from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog. Today I have a card for you using the Stampendous Giraffe stamp and die combo set. There are two things that I really like about this set. One, you can take the background die and use it with any stamp you have in your collection to make a tree scene. You can make it like the safari I made here, or you could use it as a meadow tree or Halloween dead tree just by changing up the colors of card stock you cut. Two, the giraffe set is so cute and versatile. You could mirror stamp a second one and entwine their necks around each other for an adorable love you card. There’s just so much you can do with it!!
I masked off the card layer with a circle die and masking paper. I used blending brushes and Distress Oxide inks to create the horizon and safari sky. I die cut the tree with black card stock and made it into a frame with a second circle die from my stash. I adhered this over the inked background with liquid adhesive. I stamped, die cut and colored the giraffe with Copic Markers. Stamping the sentiment and popping the giraffe and card layer up on foam adhesive finished it off nicely.
I think it fits in nicely with this month’s theme of “In the Wild”. I would love to go on an African safari someday. I just LOVE giraffes and elephants!

First I have a set of six cards using Newton’s Nook Designs “Vitamin Sea” stamp set & “Seashells” stencil.
Here is what I created:
These first 6 cards were inspired by video that Jennifer McGuire posted about a week ago. I used my Gina K 3.5”x 3.5” wreath builder template with the Ranger Distress Oxide inks and stenciled the corners of the cards. Next, I cut paper 3.75”x 3.75” and shaded the outside edges. Lastly, I cut 4”x 8” cardstock for my card base. I LOVE this technique that Jennifer shared with us in her video. I am looking forward to using this technique in the future.
My next card I struggled with. I just wasn’t sure how I was going to put it together. I started by stamping out the “Cling Jellyfish” from Stampendous and using my Scan n’ Cut to cut it out. I then took the “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide ink and shaded the whole the jellyfish. Then, I took the “Carved Pumpkin” and pressed the ink pad into an acrylic block to use as a paint pallet. I then painted the jelly fish in “Carved Pumpkin” and highlighted the circles with the “White Blizzard” Nuvo Glitter Drops. I then cut a card base 4”x 5.25” and “double stamped or 2nd generation stamping” the jellyfish (inking the image and stamping once on scrap paper and then stamping a second time on the card base). Lastly, I cut a card base 4.25”x 5.5” and shaded with the “Carved Pumpkin” Distress Oxide ink. Once all of this was done, I used foam squares to pop the jelly fish and assembled the card.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my project using Stampendous Stamp set called “Turtle Fun“. Let me just say after the few days we spent at the beach last week, having manatee’s come up and swim right by us, the only thing I had told my husband I was missing was some turtles, so when I found that I was getting to work with this set, I was so happy.
To make this card, the main blue panel is from a Lawn Fawn 6×6 paper pad called Watercolor Wishes, first I stamped the image twice, one I cut the images apart using my Scan n Cut and the other I used a combination of Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch that was still on my blending brush from a past project to blend the ocean water at the top of the panel. I then used my Radiating Rays stencils from MFT and the same blend again to create the image of the sunlight shining down into the water.
I used alcohol markers to color my images and foam tape to pop them up over their corresponding parts on the main card panel to add a 3D effect. I used Morning Dew Nuvo drops on the yes and lights on the ship, and White Blizzard Nuvo drops in the air bubbles.
Once all this was complete, I used a Spellbinders Die to make this pop up slider effect, which is where I used more of the Oxide ink blend, and stamped the sentiment. Once the recipient pulls the twine on the top, the card panel will slide up, and the sentiment will be revealed. Had I used thicker foam tape to attach the top panel to the base, I wold have been able to include a gift card under the panel as well.
