Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde. Today I am sharing a scene card that was made using SFL’s “Winter Fairies” stamp set AND “Fairy House” stamp set. For this card I started by stamping the string lights then decided what other elements worked best and the scene pretty much built itself. You may notice that beside the house is only one tree and that was intentional because space was certainly needed between the tree and the fairy.
The sky in the background is a blend of Copic Markers. Since the string lights were “on” I really wanted a dusk or early evening sky which also turned out to be a wintry sky as well so that was a nice unexpected bonus. If you look closely the paper trimming the scene is from SFL’s “Winter in Pink” paper pad. The fairy is colored in delicate pinks to go with that paper and it wasn’t until I went to adhere it all that I realized my scene just didn’t leave much space for the patterned paper but the snowflakes made a nice mat for it.
Thanks so much for stopping in today, I hope you are inspired to get crafty!
Benny the Bigfoot is just adorable! I have been having fun making cards with him and his footprint. Here are a couple that I have come up with so far and I’m not even finished with all the goodies from this collection:
Totally digging the color scheme of this card, using an inside scalloped die gave me this almost bottle cap looking circle which was a perfect place to put Benny. Used an embossing magic powder bag then VersaMark ink to stamp him down and white detail embossing powder to heat emboss this image. Stamped the sentiment out in Versafine black onyx ink then heat embossed that with clear embossing powder so it would be super shiny.
Using MFT sweet tooth ink to stamp the image onto the heart sticker (sticker is included in this collection) it left a perfect chalk-like look to the sentiment. Stamped footprint in VersaClair black ink because I knew I wouldn’t be coloring it in. Finished off this card by adding some enamel dots (okay, hearts) from my stash.
I am still playing with this collection so I’ll share the rest of the cards made with it on SFL’s Show and Share FaceBook Group. It’s a great place for inspiration and sharing what we’ve all been working on with our SFL purchased goodies.
Thank you so much for spending some time with me today here on the blog and I hope you’ll come back next Thursday and take a gander at more cards from another collection in the “Let’s Encourage One Another” Flavor of the Month card kit. If you haven’t already gotten your kit grab one here (ONLY 4 LEFT!!!), and if you want to be sure not to miss out on upcoming kits subscribe here.
I realize that we have all been grounded as of late but that hasn’t stopped me from dreaming. I have a few cards here that I created using the Best Life collection from April’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Come along with me for a quick rundown of my cards.
If you’ve seen the stamp set you’ll notice someone is missing, for this card I just wanted the scooter so after coloring it, I cut it out went around the edges with a memento marker and adhered it in the oval.
This card came together because I didn’t want to cover up too much of the background paper. I love all the mail images and was having a hard time choosing just one square that I wanted to use. In this collection photo corners were one of the embellishments and every time I see them I see arrows so after trimming off the edges I thought they made pretty convincing arrows.
I pulled in a stamp set from my stash that I thought would be perfect to send to my friend living over seas.
If you’ve had a chance to do the challenge on the SFL Show and Share group on FaceBook this may look familiar. I used the sketch challenge for this card.
I loosely followed the same sketch for this one but had some leftover pieces that I wanted to use. Once I put the sentiment on the tag it looked a little lonely all by itself so I cut out a few of the icons and added them to the tag.
Thanks so much for joining me today and taking a look at what I came up with using this collection from our April Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Don’t forget to sign up for a subscription if you want to be sure to get your hands on May’s kit. April’s sold out!
