Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog. For the month of June we will be focusing on “Under the Sea” as our theme.
Today I have a card I made using a stamp set by Picket Fence called “I am a Mermaid”. I die cut the card with the Art Impressions Flip Card Die. The papers are from Scrapberry’s “Ocean Enchantment” collection. I colored the images in with my Copic Markers (colors listed below). Full list of products used are posted at the end of this post.
This card was so much fun to make. I think she came out very pretty. I hope you think so too. Leave a comment below if you’ve ever taken an ocean or beach vacation and to where.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a card made with the Sunny Studio Home Sweet Gnome Stamp Set. I colored these little cuties with Copic Markers and all of the papers used were from the Lawn Fawn 6X6 paper pad Knock On Wood. I used the Lawn Fawn die sets Spring Sprig ,, Stitched Hillside Pop Up, and Picket Fence border the Paper Smooches Loopy Leaf die, and a stitched circle die. For the sentiments I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I finished off the card with some Nuvo Dream Drops in Dragon Scales. Check out the video HERE for all the details.
Hello Everyone! Christine with Pattercrafts here with a mostly 1 layer card. Today I wanted to build a scene with a lot of the stamps found in this set – Magical Mermaids by Sunny Studio. I first stamped all three mermaids from the stamp set on some Canson watercolor paper. I used Archival Jet Black Ink because it is waterproof. Today, I am using the Arteza Real Brush pens to color my scene.
I cut masks from Post It notes – the kind that are full adhesive – and covered the bottom 2 mermaids that I want to be sitting on the rock. After I masked the mermaids, I stamped the rocks. I also wanted the sea grass to be behind the rocks so I made a mask from the rock stamp and then covered the rock. Once done, I stamped the sea grass.
*When stamping a scene and you use masking, remember to stamp the image that will be in the “front” first.*
Once all the stamping was done, I used Arteza real brush pens to color the images and background. When I color with these brush pens, I use an acrylic block and a waterbrush. I usually lay the Arteza color down where I want the darkest areas, then color on the acrylic block and pick the color up with the waterbrush. Once all the images were colored, I added 3 different blue colors to an acrylic block and colored the entire back of the scene.
To finish the card, I cut the mermaid tails from Scrapberry’s Ocean Enchantment pattern paper. I added a little bit of highlight with a white gel pen and a little shimmer with the Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.
Thank you all for joining me today! I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a card made using a stamp set from Sunny Studios “Home Sweet Gnome”! I love gnomes so I was super excited to be able to make a card with this set! I also used the Knock on Wood Lawn Fawn paper pad. You can head over to Scrapping for Less to pick up yours at a great price. Be sure to check out my video for all the details HERE!
To make this card I did a lot of masking! A LOT!
I stamped and masked the images on the largest die cut circle I have about 4 inches. Next, I used distress oxides, a cloud and hillside stencils to add some color to the background. I colored the images with Copic markers and then used a smaller smaller circle die on the front panel. I popped the panel up with some foam tape and put it over the larger circle directly on to the card. I cut a 1/2 inch strip for the sentiment and then added sequins from a past SFL FOTM card kit and a purple bow from some ribbon.

May’s Theme for the month is Myths and Legends
Inspiration from Teresa
I thought I would leave you today with a little bit of inspiration and a story. My absolute favorite flowers are tulips…unfortunately I live in Florida and tulips won’t grow here so I gravitate toward tulip stamps! I used the stamp set called “Timeless Tulips” from Sunny Studio Stamps to create this card. The tulips are as timeless as the myths and legends we will present this month through our card designs.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out what’s up today on The Blog! I have loved Easter since I was little, I can remember digging into my Easter basket as a little one and then having to put it all down to get dressed up to go to the Easter Service and looking at my mom in disbelief that I was going to have leave all of the goodies I JUST found out about!
The love of Easter and bunnies has stuck with me through the years leaving me with a soft spot for cute bunnies and Sunny Studio’s Clear Stamp “Chubby Bunny” have some of the cutest bunnies I think I’ve ever seen!
So here is the journey of the card I made from stamping out the images to having to do a little card surgery but in the end I still arrived with a cute little Easter card I can’t wait to give to somebunny special. (I know, it’s just too precious, I almost can’t stand myself either, lol!)
I stamped out all the images, colored them with Copic Markers and then cut them out using my Scan n’ Cut.
I got out one of my sets of square dies, these happen to be from Gina Marie and I thought it looked like a picture frame and I liked the idea of being able to stamp my sentiment across the top since it looks like a banner. Once I got everything cut out I glued it down using Lawn Fawn’s adhesive which has quickly become one of my faves. I stamped my sentiment using VersaFine in Black Onyx and also blinged up a few things using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker. Once I got my sentiment in place I added a few silver glossy dots from Pink & Main.
I used a white pen to hit the bunnies’ teeth and then a black gel pen to do their eyes and though I would do one little guys mouth. Then things went awry! My black gel pen just put out much more ink than I was expecting or maybe I pressed too hard and that’s why the calamity began I am still not sure. I just know that I panicked and tried to fix it with my finger and the more I touched things the more things just went worse! That’s when I knew it was time to call up another bunny and put this little guy out of his misery.
The surgery went a lot easier than I expected and I was even able to cover up any paper tears with my new little candidate. I wanted to include this part of the journey and a pic to go with it because I don’t know about y’all but rarely do I make a card without having something that needs to be fixed. I will say I don’t typically lose an entire character but hey, it happens.
In the end it all came together and at least I got to use my favorite little bunny which is the one in the center. The little brown bunny eating a chocolate bunny, this image cracks me up!!! In my head when I see this little guy chowing down on that chocolate bunny all I hear is “Nom, nom, nom, nom!”
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you will get the chance to create today or at least do something that you’ve been wanting to do! Take care and I hope to see you back here soon.

Hello, Happy Tuesday! It’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma up on the blog today. I wanted to share with you a card I made today from a past Flavor of the Month Card Kit. For many months since Scrapping for Less has started selling these card kits it was my mission to obliterate each one and make as many cards as I could from it. Well, as you know, sometimes life gets in the way and the past few months I have been unable to devote so much time into demolishing each kit. So I decided to dig out one of the past kits and revisit it and make some cards. This kit from May 2018 called “In the Countryside” was one of my favorites. Even though I am a girl from “town” I just adore and love farm images and colors. I love the gingham colors and patterns often associated with farm life. I love love love cows, pigs, goats, horses and chickens.
As an added bonus for you, Scrapping for Less has a few of these In the Countryside kits left and what’s even better news they are ON SALE! You can save $10 off the original price of $40. Yes! That’s a great deal, $30 for a Banana Split level kit with a ton of goodies that will give you hours of crafting fun.
