In my mind, the clouds are literally showering hearts… I just love how quick this fun card came together! I stamped the clouds from the adorable Spring Showers stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink in my Stamp Platform so I’d get a beautiful crisp stamped image.
I then colored the clouds very simply with BV0000, BV01, and the Colorless Blender copic markers. I fussy cut the clouds and set them aside. I trimmed my patterned paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and then lined up my stitched rectangle die in the center securing it with some purple tape. I ran it through my Big Shot and then mat the rainbow polka dot hearts paper on a 3-3/8 x 4-5/8″ piece of white card stock. I was going to adhere that layer back onto the rainbow polka dot hearts paper, but when I flipped it over I saw the ombre rainbow paper side and decided to use this side.
I adhered the papers to the card using a liquid glue and then stamped the sentiment. I used a smaller rectangle die to die cut the sentiment and then trimmed off the extra from the left side. I adhered the sentiment to the card and then adhered the clouds.
I just love how sweet this card turned out and it was really so quick to make!! Be sure to stop by the SFL shop and see all the fabulous Sunny Studio Stamps products available… so many wonderful stamps, dies and papers!!
So glad you stopped by the blog today. Today’s card was created with Sunny Studio Stamps Cheerful Daisies stamp set. Looking at the stamp set alone makes me happy and then when you add color WOW!
This stamp set is what I like to refer to as a stampy stamp. A stampy stamp is a stamp set in which one must stamp in colored ink to create the image of the stamp. Gotta tell you these type of stamps are a tinge on the intimidating side to me. Now I will say that having a stamp tool is fantastic and makes it so much easier than trying to line it up free hand but Sunny Studio has also taken the extra step and beside each stamp it tells you what to use next, which I love!
The ink I used is Lawn Fawn premium dye ink. I took a lot more pics than I typically take because I wanted you to be able to see how it looks because if this becomes your first stampy stamp I wanted you all to see that it looks different. So no more chit chat. Here’s the pics…
When stamping with stampy stamps go lighter to darker and know that you may have to stamp the image several times to get full coverage. This is a beautiful stamp set and it made such a happy card! Here it is again…
I heat embossed the sentiment in white puff embossing powder, I knew I wanted it to be thick looking.
Thanks again for stopping by and spending your time with us today!
I’m also bringing in some distress ink and watercolor paper to do a little ink smooshing. I am using Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and bring in little Peacock Feathers for some hearts.
First, I flipped through all the beautiful pattern papers to find the one I wanted to use. Once I chose a pattern, I used a stitched rectangle die to trim my panel.
Next, I took out my non-stick mat and smooshed down some Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I added some water and pressed down my watercolor piece. I did this again then repeated the step with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I used a heat gun to dry the area and added hearts using the Distress Ink.
I stamped out the vacuum image from the stamp set with Copic friendly ink and colored the image with Copic markers. I then used the coordinating die to die cut the image. All that is left is putting the pieces together and adding some finishing touches!

Hello! It’s Kari from Sunshine In My Pocket.com and I’m so excited to be a guest on the Scrapping For Less blog! Today I have some cards made with the Prancing Pegasus stamp set and beautiful Fairy’s Garden paper pad.
For my first card, I inked up the background with some Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold. Then I splattered on some white pearl watercolor to give it more of a magical feel.
I stamped some of the stars from the same stamp set on the background using the same colors of Distress Oxide inks. They are a little difficult to see in the photos, but it adds a subtle detail.
I colored up the Pegasus with Copic markers and added some sparkly stickles to the wing. I die cut some clouds from my stash and added WOW! Sparkle glitter to the smaller ones.
That frame is from the diagonal paper in the paper pack and it adds just the right touch! I simply used 2 nesting rectangle dies to cut out that frame. I stamped the sentiment on strips of teal paper and popped it up with foam tape. This is for sure a “magical” birthday card that is fit for a princess!
For my second card I knew I wanted that Pegasus to be running on top of a rainbow. So I glittered up a rainbow and added it to a pink polka dot background from the Fairy’s Garden paper.
I colored the Pegasus’ mane, tail, and wing in the same rainbow colors with Copic markers. Those butterflies and leaves are cut from the paper pad as well! I was so excited to see those butterflies in there and they were so perfect for this rainbow card!
I added some clouds to the card and stamped the sentiment “For My Princess” with pink ink.
I added the Pegasus with foam tape to give it more dimension. I also folded up the butterfly wings just a little to so they look like they are flying!
I hope you enjoyed these projects today! I really loved making them. I’ll see you real soon with some more inspiration.

I stamped out most of the images from the stamp set with Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I set those aside and die cut the rest of the pieces for my cards. Using a stitched rectangle die I cut a piece of silver glitter paper and a piece of white card stock. I then used a snowy hill stitched die to cut 2 snow hills from the white card stock. I then stamped my sentiment on the smaller snow hill.
I love that the glitter paper has that sticky back – it makes it super easy to use as a main panel. I added my largest snow hill directly onto the glitter paper and the smaller snow hill I added with foam adhesive. I finished the card by arranging my images onto the card.
That’s it for today’s card! I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
I just can’t wait for the first snow to fall! Where I live it’s not uncommon to have a dusting or two before Halloween!
This card is the result of a happy accident – but I love the look! I sprayed the back of the Echo Park Magical Snowfall Stencil a little too heavily with Pixie Spray and I didn’t wait long enough for the spray to dry before adding it to my cardstock. I pressed Versamark ink over the stencil and when I removed it and added my Lilac Pearl embossing powder the powder actually stuck to the background. I LOVE it! I think it looks like the soft flurries of snow that picks up and blows around in the wind!
The little snowman is from the Avery Elle Christmas Magic stamp set. I wanted him to match my heat embossed background, so I used some BV Copic Markers to color his hat and scarf. The sentiment is from the Sunny Studio Stamps Bundled Up stamp set. I thought it fit this card perfectly!
I added all of my die cut elements onto my card and finished it off with some string tied in a bow. Head over to the Scrapping for Less store to find these products and more for your Holiday cards!
Christmas is in full swing at Scrapping for Less! And it truly will be here before you know it!
I’m a lover of classic Christmas colors! – red, green, gold! Gorgeous! I ink blended some Candied Apple Distress Ink onto a piece of cardstock keeping the ink darker towards the center and lighter towards the outside. I used a slightly darker color of ink – Fired Brick – and stenciled the Echo Park Magical Snowfall Stencil over the ink blending and die cut the panel with a stitched circle die. I thought the background needed something more, so I flicked on some metallic gold watercolor.
I super love the Bundled Up stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps because you can build your own penguin! I stamped the penguin and a bunch of accessories and colored them with classic Christmas colored Copic markers and trimmed them out with my scissors and added them to my die cut circle and stamped a sentiment under the penguin. I wanted to add a little more gold to my card, so I die cut a foiled piece of cardstock with a slightly larger die cut circle and added it to a circle card base. Check out the video above to see how I made that!
This card has so much shine! And I love the subtle snowflakes in the background! Thanks for stopping by!
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with more fabulous inspiration using the September 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit called Fall is Coming!! I’m so excited to share the cards that I created! I had so much fun with this card kit! Once I started creating, I just couldn’t stop!! Lol! I have 8 cards to share with you all today! I’m going to warn you now, this post is a tad bit long, but I hope you’ll stick around and check out all my cards! Let’s get to it!
If you’ve followed my card making journey you’ll know that I adore making Halloween cards, so it’s no surprise I made a couple extras with the fabulous Frightful Cuties Collection!!! Love it!! I almost used up all the gorgeous papers in the kit… too cute!
My first card is from Collection Two: Cozy Fall. This collection is so beautiful! The papers are absolutely stunning! If I get a chance, I do have plans to make another card or two with this collection… but for today’s card, I kept the design kind of simple. I instantly fell in love with the gorgeous rose papers… the colors are amazing so I HAD to use it for my card and I also wanted to use the mug… well, because I love my coffee!! I used the following Copic markers to color the mug and flowers:
Mug ~ R000, R20, R39, R85
Flowers/leaves ~ YG0000, YG01, YG03, YR15, YR21
I fussy cut the mug and went around the edges with my Memento tuxedo black marker to clean it up a bit. I then set it aside and started die cutting the Autumn Blessings die from the Banana Split subscription. I die cut it three times and then adhered the die cuts together. A little tip for this intricate die… it’s not one piece, it cuts into four separate sections. I used Press n’ Seal wrap to hold my die cut pieces in place. I then added the liquid glue and placed the die cut layers on each other. It was a little time consuming but so worth it!! I love this fabulous font of this sentiment! It’s perfect paired up with these gorgeous papers! To finish off the card, I adhered the fussy cut mug just above the sentiment and added a few enamel dots included in the Banana Split subscription.
My second card is from Collection Three: Fall Foliage. Another fabulous set of papers in this collection and they honestly made this card super quick!! I cut the gorgeous flourish paper at 4-1/4 x 4-1/2″ and popped it up on a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ piece of the yellow paper. I adhered those to a white card base and set them aside. I stamped the beautiful sunflower from the Thankful Floral stamp set by Trinity Stamps… such a gorgeous flower! I colored it in with the following Copic markers:
Flower ~ Y11, YR14, YR15, YR21, YR24, E25, E27
Leaves ~ YG01, YG03, YG63
I stamped the Thankful sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and trimmed it into a strip. I adhered it to the card and then adhered the sunflower using liquid glue on the top portion and some foam tape on the bottom since that flourish paper was popped up. To finish off the card, I added a few of the rich yellow enamel dots to the card and one sweet ladybug! Love it!!
My third card is from Collection Four: Woodland Critters. For this card, I used one of the fun sketches from the September 2019 FOTM Sketch Sheet. I cut all my pretty papers and adhered them to the Chocolate Brown card base. I die cut a medium sized circle of white card stock and blended a little Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks for my background. I popped up the circle die cut on the card using foam tape. I then set that aside and stamped the moose and snail images on a piece of white card stock. I colored those in with the following Copic markers:
Moose ~ E21, E23, E25, E27, W00, W2, W4, W5, N4
Snail ~ YG0000, YG01, YG03, YR15, YR21, YR24
I fussy cut these adorable Woodland Critters and adhered them to the little scene I created. I originally planned to make two cards with these critters but when I saw them together I just knew they would be the best of friends so I kept them together and stamped the Friends Forever sentiment on a scrap of white card stock. I trimmed it down to a banner and adhered it to the card using liquid glue and foam tape. To finish off this card, I wrapped the twine around the card and tied a bow.
My next five cards are from Collection One: Frightful Cuties. Now, this collection is absolutely my favorite of the whole kit… that’s kind of why I left it for last and also didn’t share the collections in order. The papers in this collection are too cute and the colors are awesome for Halloween! Love them! My first card features the adorable Scaredy Cat stamp by Sunny Studio Stamps that’s included in Collection One. I stamped the little kitty in the pumpkin along with the moon and stars using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I knew I was going to die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die so I laid that on the white card stock to help guide me in positioning the stamps. I then colored in the images, as well as the background, with the following Copic markers:
Kitty ~ N0, N1, N2, N3, N5, R000, R20
Pumpkin ~ YR15, YR21, YR68, N0, N3, N5
Moon/Stars ~ Y06, Y11, Y35
Sky ~ BV000, BV00, BV20, BV23, BV25
Grass ~ YG03, YG17, YG23, YG67
Once I was done coloring, I die cut the panel and stamped the sentiment with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed it with a fine white embossing powder. I adhered all of my layers to a Black Licorice card front measuring 5-1/2 x 4-1/4″ and then adhered that to a white card base from my stash. I punched out a piece of the spider web paper using a 1-1/2″ circle punch. I die cut the banner from the purple spider web paper. I adhered those two pieces together and then popped them up on the card using foam tape. To finish off this card, I added the fun stickers to the circle and one near the moon. So cute!
The next four cards were so quick and easy to make!! I used the adorable Kiddie Ephemera by Simple Stories that are included in Collection One… these little kids are just TOO cute!! I blended some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink on a Stitched Arch STAX die cut piece cut from white card stock and adhered this adorable kid directly on it. I popped up the die cut on the card using foam tape. I added a few of the fun green enamel dots to finish up this card.
I used more of the fabulous papers from the kit with this little vampire!! I added foam tape to the little vampire, as well as the sentiment, and popped those up on the card.
I used more of those fabulous stickers on this card… it was absolutely perfect with this little witch. I blended a bit of Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the white die cut circle to make it look like she’s conjuring up some Halloween magic fun!! I then popped her up on the card to give her some dimension. Such a great way to add interest to a card!
My last card just might be my favorite! I had fun creating a little background with some purple skies and grey/black road… just like Halloween night! Or close to it anyway! I used a cloud stencil along with Wilted Violet, Hickory Smoke, and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks to create my background. I set that aside and adhered some more pretty papers to a Black Licorice card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ that I adhered to a white card base from my stash. I then die cut my background piece with a small stitched rectangle die and mat it with some Black Licorice card stock. By the way, I was actually out of Black Licorice card stock so that mat piece is actually from the card front piece that’s adhered to the card base… a neat little trick I sometimes use when my card stock becomes limited in supply. The ‘stolen’ piece of card stock is hidden by a layer of patterned papers so no one knows… well, unless you tell them! Lol! Back to the card… I adhered the background panel to the card and then popped up the little Trick or Treater with some foam squares. I then stamped the sentiment from the Scaredy Cat stamp set, trimmed it and mat it on literally my last little scrap of Black Licorice card stock… I definitely like the black card stock for Halloween cards this year!
Here’s a little look at all the Halloween cards together! So much fun!! I love this kit so much… there are still a few kits remaining!!
Don’t you just love the colors of Autumn?! I do! And I love coloring floral images with yellow and orange to make a fall bouquet!
I stamped out one of the bouquets from the Pinkfresh Studio Fancy Blooms stamp set and used Copic markers to color in the image. I used R08, YR09, and YR07 for the orange flower. The yellow flower I used YR04, Y17, and Y15. The leaves are BG78 and BG75 and the brown sprigs are E79 and E74.
I cut out a few of my favorite patterns from the Lawn Fawn Fall Knit Picky paper pad with stitched dies and adhered them to a card front. I trimmed out my colored bouquet and added it to the stitched oval with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Studio Stamps Beautiful Autumn stamp set onto a strip of patterned paper with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink and added it on top of my bouquet.
I added a bit of shimmer to my bouquet with Liquid Pixie Dust to finish the card! Thanks for stopping by today!
