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!!

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.
