SFL – Flavor of the Month Card Kit – November 2020 – Simply Sentimental

Hello my dear crafty friends! It has been a wild and wondrous ride over the past 3 and 3/4 years! I am soooo very thankful that you all supported the Flavor of the Month kit and helped me to realize a dream. It is with gratefulness and gratitude that I bring you this fantastic last kit “Simply Sentimental”. We have very few kits available so you will not want to hesitate at all. Run, run, run to the website to get the final Flavor of the Month kit for yourself. Make sure to enter the Rafflecopter as well!

Collection 1, Sketch 1

How sweet is this puppy! I trimmed my pattern paper as shown in the sketch. I stamped the puppy with Copic friendly ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used a black gel pen to add dash lines around the outside. I used 3 sequins to to finish the card.

Collection 2, Sketch 4

I trimmed the pattern paper as shown in the sketch. (I did have trouble with that angled piece! Yikes!) I didn’t get the center of that angled pattern paper just right so I used a mini scallop circle die to cut out the sentiment I stamped onto white card stock. I added that with foam adhesive and covered that area that didn’t look quite right! I added a little of the ribbon to the top of that piece and finished the card with 3 enamel dots from the collection.

Collection 3, Sketch 4

I love the colors in this collection. I again trimmed my pattern paper as shown in the sketch. I stamped the sentiment with a bright pink ink that matched the pink polka dot paper. I used a circle die to cut that and added three of the paper flowers found in the collection.

Collection 4, Sketch 2

I thought the paper in this collection was absolutely gorgeous. I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and used distress ink to color the card stock. As usual, I trimmed all my pattern patter pieces as shown on the sketch. I finished the card by using some of the ephemera from the collection in the area that shows “flowers” in the sketch.

BONUS CARD

I did made an extra card this month using the Banana Split portion of the card kit. This included the heart embossing folder, the banner die cut and the ribbon! The sentiment is from Collection 2.

Thanks for hopping along! Next on the hop is BETH!!

Hello Cardmakers! I hope you are doing well this morning. This month’s theme is all about encouragement. How about taking one of the words in the acronym above and making it your word for the coming month? My word is going to be motivation! Motivation to send out at least 3 cards a week to encourage someone. The design team and guest designers this month have created some absolutely fabulous designs with the card kit contents. Hop on through and take a look. One person I know who encourages people each and every day is Courtney Kreeber, she has helped design components of this month’s kit. Her group Handmade Happiness over on Facebook is all about encouraging each other. Who have you encouraged today? Check out this wonderful card kit centered around encouragement over on the Scrapping for Less website. Also check out the SFL blog post and make sure to enter the Rafflecopter.

Card 1, Collection 1, Sketch 4

Benny the Bigfoot is so sweet! I trimmed my pattern paper to follow the sketch and added my image. I stamped out the sentiment “Love Big” from the stamp set onto one of the hearts but it was with black ink. I grabbed a white gel pen and wrote out the sentiment and I liked that better. On the inside I added a strip of scrap and the image of the foot from the stamp set.

Card 2, Collection 2, Sketch 2

This card was my favorite! I stamped and colored all the images in the set. I trimmed the pattern paper to follow the sketch. Instead of putting the sentiment on as shown in the sketch, I decided to add it to the oval piece. I added one lemon and a flower to that piece. On the inside, I added another strip of scrap paper and a lemon slice.

Card 3, Collection 3, Sketch 3

This collection was so BRIGHT and CHEERFUL! I matted all the pattern paper on black card stock so the colors would pop. I stamped and colored the images with Copic Markers. The sun image is solid on the outside so I stamped that with yellow ink and filled the center using Copic Markers. I added Diamond Stickles to the cloud and some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the Rainbow. On the side, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set and 2 cloud images.

Card 4, Collection 4, Sketch 1

This collection has some great ephemera. I did color the lady bug image from the stamp set; that was my original design for the front. However, after I trimmed my pattern paper as seen on the sketch, I thought the larger lady bug ephemera pieces fit nicer. I added some enamel dots from the collection in the lower, right hand corner. On the inside, I added a strip of scrap and a small lady bug ephemera piece along with the sentiment from the stamp set.

SFL Flavor of the Month – City Streets and Country Roads – April 2020 Card Kit

City Streets and Country Roads! I am a country/small town girl at heart but oh those city streets and the hustle and bustle of a city is very exciting! Which do you prefer? This month’s theme is a little bit travel themed and a little bit hometown themed. Join the Design Team as they share inspiration for all these wonderful collections. Make sure to stop by the website and either purchase a one time kit or sign up for a subscription. Also, please enter the rafflecopter for a chance to win a prize. *Disclaimer: I know most of you are Staying Safe at home…please know this theme was planned way before all this happened.

Collection 1, Sketch 2

How fun is this paper! The stamp has both a super girl and a super boy. I chose the Super Girl and the sentiment “You’re Amazing”! I put an enamel dot on each side of the sentiment to fill in the white space. The star is an image from the stamp set; I stamped out 3 times, colored and fussy cut. I added Nuvo Glitter Drops in Yellow Bird (Not Included) to the stars.

Collection 2, Sketch 1

The paper in this collection is so pretty. I especially love the one I used as the main panel. I stamped the image from the stamp set, colored it with Copic markers and cut it out with the scan ‘n cut. I added some Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush to the scooter. I roughly followed the sketch and I loved the way this card came out!

Collection 3, Sketch 3

I love the image from this collection but I found it a little intimidating to color with Copics markers so I grabbed some color pencils (the good ol’ Crayola kind). This is the first time I have colored with color pencils. Once the image was colored I added it to the card with the sentiment. To finish this card, I added 3 enamel dots from the collection

Collection 4, Sketch 4

I changed a few things from the sketch to fit my vision. I wanted to add both characters onto one tag but they didn’t fit. I also originally wanted to use the blue fabric tag but my character didn’t fit. So, I removed the twine from the blue tag and add it to this white fabric tag. I stamped the sentiment from the sentiment onto the tag and added my character with Ranger’s Multi Medium Matte to make sure it stuck to the fabric tag. I added the tag with foam adhesive and finished the card with Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush to the cowgirl’s hat.

Scrapping for Less – November Flavor of the Month Card Kit – Vintage Christmas

It’s all about “A Vintage Christmas” this month. I love the look and colors of vintage Christmas decorations. I hope you are inspired by the sweet little postal girl, the indented glass ornament stamp, and all of the other papers and baubles that we have added to the kit this month to give it that vintage feel.

Card 1, Collection 1, Sketch 3

For this card I followed sketch 4 and trimmed down various pieces of pattern paper found in Collection 1. I stamped out the house image from the “Victorian Christmas” Stamp Set from Sunny Studio and colored it with Copic markers. I trimmed it down with a Mod Rectangle die and added to the card. To finish the house, I used Nuvo Crystal drops for my Christmas lights and added some Diamond Stickles to parts of my snowy roof.

For the inside, I stamped the house image with Memento London Fog ink and added snowflakes using the 2 stamps from the stamp set. I added a scrap piece of pattern paper as well to the bottom of the inside panel.

To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set onto white card stock and cut it out with a fishtail banner die; leaving room for the largest button I received in my kit. I used the red thread to decorate the button by tying a bow. I adhered the button with Multi Media glue.

Card 2, Collection 2, Sketch 1

The stamp set found in collection 2 was perfect for the square card of sketch 1. The “Christmas Post” Stamp from LDRS was stamped with a black ink so I could see my lines and then with a clear sticky ink one would use for heat embossing. I then sprinkled fine, clear embossing powder over the image and heat set it. I did this because I am using my Arteza Real Brush pens to color this image and using embossing powder helps give control over where your colors should be. I did have a color that ran, but I hid it! That’s that fun of making a mistake – you can cover it up and no one has to know!

I trimmed down some pattern paper and followed the card sketch. I added a white mat to the inside of my card and added a strip of scrap pattern paper that says Merry Christmas to the bottom.

To finish the card, I added one of the Blackboard Label found in this collection to the lower, left hand corner (where my colors ran a little) and also added a lot of sparkle with Stickles. I used the red stickles for the berries, and diamond stickles around the snow banks and the furry part of her outfit.

Card 3, Collection 3, Sketch 2

This card is probably my favorite this month. I stamped out the Santa image from the Your Next Stamp “Jolly Santa” stamp set that is found in collection 3. I colored him with Copic markers and added some sparkle with Wink of Stella clear glitter brush. I followed sketch 3 and trimmed some pattern paper then put it all together.

For the inside of the card I stamped the image using a light gray ink and then used black ink to stamp the sentiment from the stamp set just over the top of the image.

To finish the card I added a piece of ephemera to the lower, left hand corner of the image and some enamel dots to the upper, right hand corner.

Card 4, Collection 4, Sketch 4

This card was the simplest to make. I again, followed sketch 4 and trimmed out my pattern paper. I decided to use the Be Merry Sentiment from the “An Ornamental Christmas” stamp by Scrapping for Less found in this collection. I used some clear embossing powder to give this sentiment a little shine.

For the inside of the card I just added a white mat with a piece of scrap paper adhered on the bottom.

To finish this card, I just added 3 sequins from the sequin pack.

BONUS:

The card to the left I created using elements from the Banana Split portion of the card kit in combination with Collection 1.

The card to the right was my Sneak Peek from Monday.

April Card Sketches

Collection 1, Sketch 4

Fun, little, busy bees and their beehive. This sketch was a perfect way to use the bees in this stamp set. I stamped the bees and the beehive, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. The bees were used like the banner in the sketch. I used Wink of Stella glitter brush on the wings of the bees and on the beehive.

On the inside of the the card I used the sentiment “Just bee-cause” from the stamp set and stamped the bees around the sentiment.

Collection 2, Sketch 1

The stamp set in this collection is great for making all kinds of backgrounds and wreaths. I decided to make a wreath using a variety of inks. I am using one of the ephemera pieces for the sentiment “thinking of you”. I added Wink of Stella glitter brush along the sentiment.

On the inside, I used a few of those floral pieces in opposite corners.

Collection 3, Sketch 3

This card is super fun! I stamped the water and lily pad and colored that scene in with Copic markers. I also stamped and colored the frog image – fussy cut it out so I could add it to the lily pad with foam tape. I stamped the “You’re Toadally Terrific” with green ink. I then added Wink of Stella glitter brush to the water.

On the inside, I used a sentiment found on the “Sentiment Stamp Set” found in the banana split portion of the card kit and stamped the water image again.

Collection 4, Sketch 2

How cute are these ducks! I stamped the duck in the umbrella image, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. Then I cut an oval with a wonky stitched oval die and adhered the duck with foam tape.

On the inside I used the “Have a Ducky Day” sentiment from the stamp set and the other duck image.
