10 Cards, 1 Kit | Spellbinders October Card Kit 2019 | Sparkling Holidays

Happy holiday card crafting to you all! If you like to send out holiday cards, this is a great kit to use. I make 10 cards in this video, and I will make many more with the left-over supplies. It’s fun to send out a unique card to everyone on your Christmas list. It can be nice to mass produce one fabulous design. However, it’s more fun in my opinion to craft a variety of cards so you don’t get bored making the same card over and over.

In this kit Spellbinders offers some very nontraditional colors to create holiday cards with, but I enjoyed using the purples, pinks, and soft blues. I always love their packs of ephemera pieces and their pattern papers. It makes creating cards effortless and fun!

Scrapping for Less | October 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Reveal | Christmas Around the World

75086829_10157836379468615_8751927491251142656_o (1)

I was an elementary school teacher for many years. During Christmas time for Social Studies we studied Christmas traditions around the world. This was my absolute favorite time of the year with my students. So, for our Christmas Around the World card kit I have chosen my most favorite countries we studied to feature.

Mexico: Great food and wonderful traditions centered around Papa Noel.

Sweden: St. Lucia was my favorite tradition in Sweden we studied.

Australia: My students got the biggest kick out of the fact that it was hot and summer there during Christmas.

Germany: Of course what would a study be without studying the origin of the Christmas tree.

Please sit back and enjoy the elements we put together for our Christmas Around the World Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Make sure you leave our designers some love on their blog and hop back to the SFL blog to enter the Rafflecopter. You can purchase the kit on Scrapping for Less on the Subscription page.

____________________________________________________________________________________________
Hello, everyone!
Welcome to my blog! I am guest designing for Scrapping for Less for their October Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I designed a card for each of the four different collections included in this kit. Check out my process video below! I love Scrapping for Less’ card kits, especially their October kits because they are Christmas themed. It’s a great kit to help you get started on your Christmas cards.
I really love the theme of this year’s kit–Christmas around the world. There are so many fun and unique stamps, papers and crafty goodies inside. I especially love the Papa Noel Stamp along with the Feliz Navidad sentiment! For each of these cards I used one of the Card Sketches that Scrapping for Less provides.
Here is my process video for these cards! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Card #1: Papa Noel
I stamped out Papa Noel on some Stonehenge colored pencil paper–see link below. This paper is fabulous to use with your color pencils of choice. It’s smooth, but it has a fine texture that pulls the pigments off your colored pencils. I used odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps to smooth out my coloring.
IMG_8876
Card #2: Santa in Australia
For this card I stamped out the images on a circle die cut, and I used Arteza alcohol Markers to color it in.
Here are the markers I used: Santa – Pale Peach; Trunks, Beard & Ball of Hat: White Diamond, Cloudy Gray; Trunks & Hat – Red, Ruby Red, and Apple Green; Surf Board – Lime Green & Tuscan Sun; Beach – Jasmine Yellow & Beach Sand; Ocean – Arctic Blue
IMG_8878
Card #3: Easy Ephemera and Pattern Paper Card
This card was the quickest of the set to create. This card leans heavily on the cuteness of the pattern paper and ephemera pieces, and they support it well! I love all the pattern papers in these collections!
IMG_8880
IMG_8882
Card #4: O Christmas Tree Card
I love a great tree stamp, and this one really tickled my fancy. I stamped it out with some green Ombre ink that gives it even more dimension and interest. I stamped the star with yellow ink.

Next on the Blop Hop is Stacy from Craft-a-holic Momma!
Thank you for hopping along with us! Have a wonderful weekend!

10 Cards, 1 Kit | SSS October Card Kit 2019 |Thankful Flowers

Hello everyone! We are in the midst of a gorgeous fall here in Chicagoland. I love creating cards with all the traditional fall-time colors, and I went all-out fall with Simon Says Stamp’s October card kit. The floral images and the sentiments in the stamp set form this kit are lovely! However, its the kind of set that you can use all year round.

I created these cards using a lot of different art mediums, and a lot of different techniques. I always have a ball creating with SSS’s card kits, and this one was no exception.  You will see pictures of all the cards I created, my process video, and supply links below.

IMG_8701

Card #1: Note of Thanks Card

I stamped the flower image from the Thankful Blooms set onto a piece of darling pattern paper and colored it in with Faber Castell colored pencils. A small strip of metallic paper from the kit, brings this card to the next level.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Cinnamon 189, Light Purple Pink 128, Fuchsia 123, Red-Violet 194, Earth Green Yellowish 168, Permanent Green Olive, 167, Cream 102, Venetian Red 190

IMG_8702

Card #2:Black & White Thanks Card with Metallic Sentiment

This black and white floral pattern paper is beautiful enough to stand on it’s own, so I just added my sentiment, a few gemstones and called it done.

IMG_8703

Card #3: Double Emboss on Patter Paper Card

I embossed the floral image as well as the sentiment with Penny embossing powdered onto a piece of pattern paper. I love all the browns of the embossing, the lines on the pattern paper and the dark chocolate card base. I added a pop of interest by coloring in the flowers and leaves with some Distress Oxide inks. Very fast coloring!

IMG_8704

Card #4: Fall Flowers Card

This card took the longest to put together, but it’s my favorite. I colored in the flowers with alcohol markers from Arteza–These flowers are the star of the show; however, I really love the cute pattern paper, and the bold thanks die cut.

Arteza Everblend Art Markers – Tuscan Sun, Sunflower Yellow, Amber Yellow, Macaron Pink, Coral, Tea Green, Olive Green

IMG_8705

Card #5: Diagonal Pattern Paper Cards

This card design in a two-fer. I created two cards in the same time it takes to create one card. I cut down the pattern papers into 5 1/4 by 4 inches, and then I put them together and cut them out diagonally. I added a stripe of metallic card stock and some gemstones to add some bling. I was able to stamp the sentiments right onto the pattern paper because they are bold enough to not get lost.

IMG_8706

IMG_8707

Card #6: White Embossed Pattern Card

I really enjoyed working with this dark chocolate card stock from the kit. A lot of card crafters, it seems, don’t like to work with brown, but I love it! I embossed the large flower cluster several times around the dark chocolate card stock. I used the same thanks sentiment die on this card, a few iridescent bubbles, and that is all. The beauty of the  stamp speaks for itself.

IMG_8708

Card #7: Wood Grain Flower Card

I used my Prismacolor pencils to color in the flowers on this card. I really love the wood grain pattern paper, and I though a wood grain frame would compliment it well. I stamped my sentiment right onto the pattern paper even though the letters are very small. The pattern paper was light enough to allow me to do this.

Prismacolor Pencils: Orange Flower: Spanish Orange, Orange, Pumpkin Orange, Limepeel, Kelp Green  Pink Flower: Deco Pink, Pink, Neon Pink, Magenta Limepeel, Kelp Green

IMG_8710

Card #8: Masculine Thank You Card

This was the fasted card to put together. I simply stamped the flower inside the squares of this plaid pattern paper. I used a strip of metallic paper to add a pop of interest to this card. I then adhered everything down onto a black card base on which I heat embossed the sentiment.

IMG_8709

Card #9: Watercolor Card with Tiny Notes

I just had to watercolor in these flowers, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I used another piece of pattern paper behind the flower cluster. I stamped two tiny sentiments onto cream colored card stock and tucked them behind the flower cluster.

IMG_8711

Card #10: Stamped Pattern Background Card

I stamped all the small images from the stamp set onto a piece of kraft card stock. I adore the dots stamps. I’m keep though out on my desk, because I know I will use them a lot. They aren’t perfect circle dots–they’re wonky dots! I love anything wonky! I feel a bit wonky myself oftentimes. Lol!

After I was done coloring in my background with Prismacolor pencils, I felt it just needed a little something more, so I added a little bit of teal colored pencil on some of the images. It just needed a little pop of color. It didn’t need any gemstones this time; the background is busy enough. I used a piece of metallic paper to mat it. However, I wanted the metallic paper to show up a little more, so I cut slits into two of the corners and slid my panel into it. Kinda different but fun!

Prismacolor Pencils: Goldenrod 1034, Yellow Ochre 942, Limepeel 1005, Artichoke 1098, Olive Green 911, Kelp Green 1090, Light Aqua 992

IMG_8712

Have a wonderful day!!

5 Cards, 1 Kit | Pink & Main August Card Kit 2019 | Fruit Salad

What is cuter than a fruit stamp set? I loved this kit from Pink & Main with all it’s bold pattern papers, sequins, rhinestones, and twine–and especially the 6 x 6 stamp set. The set provides the outline stamps and the solid stamps; so, you can color in the images or stamp them in. I created 5 fun cards using this kit.

IMG_8373 - Copy

Card #1: Strawberry & Plaid Card

I usually always jump into a kit using my favorite of the stamps and my favorite of the pattern paper. They do most of the work for you. This was a 100% stamped card–no coloring involved, which was unusual for me. If you have a stamp positioning tool, it makes a card like this go very fast.

IMG_8374

 

IMG_8375

Card #2: Action Wobbler Lemon

Another fast and easy card with a big impact. Action wobblers are fun to use, and how could the recipient not love it! Minimal coloring on this card–I only filled in the lemon with a few colored pencils to add some dimension.

IMG_8377

IMG_8378

Card #3: Row of Fruit Card

This card is my favorite! I absolutely love the look of colored pencils on kraft card stock. These fruit images were really fun to color in!! I added highlights with a white gel pen, and this added a lot of charm to the card. Some of the highlight I simply used a white colored pencil.

IMG_8379

Card #4: Distress Ink Fruit Card

I had a vision for this card when I started out, and the end result turned out nothing like the vision I had in my head. Lol! That’s how it is sometimes; however, I love how it turned out in the end. This card went through a lot of changes. My plan was to ink smoosh and then stamp the flowers onto it using the pink embossing powder in the kit. I learned that I need to practice my ink smooshing skills.

IMG_8380

Card #5: Watermelon Card

I realized when creating this kit that the watermelon image was my favorite of the set. Look how cute it stamped out!! All stamping, no coloring for this card too. It should have been very quick and easy, but I couldn’t decide on my positioning of the melons. That took me a while. Lol!

10 Cards, 1 Kit | SSS August Card Kit 2019 | Look for the Rainbows

Hi my crafty friends, I hope you are all having a wonderful day! When I received Simon Says Stamp’s September card like last week, I dug right in. This card kit is full of pretty things. I love floral stamp sets, and I did a lot of different techniques using their stamp set called, “Look for the Rainbows.”

2019 SSS Sept Card Kit THUMB

Card #1: Colored Pencil on Pattern Paper

Polychromos Pencils: Cobalt Green 156, Cobalt Turquoise 153, Light Red-Violet 135, Olive Green Yellowish 173, Chrome Oxide Green 278, Dark Naples Ochre 184, Indian Red 192

I love block text pattern paper, and their is nothing prettier thank stamping and coloring in the flowers right on this paper. I used colored pencils that matches the color of the text. You don’t need to add a lot of color, and these are very fast cards to put together. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card stock and popped it up off the card with foam tape.

Card #2: Rainbow Flower Card

Polychromos Pencils: Medium Flesh 131. Deep Scarlet Red 219, Magenta 133, Cadmium Yellow Lemon 205, Cadmium Orange 111, May Green 170, Permanent Green 266, Light Phthalo Green 162, Ultramarine 120, Helioblue-Reddish 151, Dark Naple Ochre 184

I colored in my flower image to match the rainbow pattern paper. I liked how this pattern paper isn’t your usual bright rainbow colors–it’s more muted. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of pattern paper that I selectively die cut with an oval die.

IMG_8432

Card #3: No-Line Watercolor Flower

I stamped the flower onto a pieces of Arches Cold Press watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide. The ink melted really well into the Daniel Smith watercolors I used to paint this flower. No-line watercoloring takes time because you don’t want to paint petals that are next to each other. If you do this they will bleed together, and you won’t get any distinction between the petals. I really loved this bright green pattern paper that I used for the background. I stamped the sentiment onto the Arches paper as well, and used a watercolor pencils to color it in the same color as the flower.

Card #4: Colored Pencils on Pattern Paper, Again 🙂

The pattern paper in this kit is fabulous, and I really love polka-dot paper. I stamped this flower cluster with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink. Sometimes colored pencils can dull your lines; however, I didn’t do a lot of coloring on this panel. I wanted to allow the pattern of the paper show through.

IMG_8435

Card #5: Orange & Teal Fall Time Card

Unfortunately, I lost some footage when I was creating this card. I stamped the flower and stem onto a piece of kraft card stock and used polychromos colored pencils to color them in. I used mostly flicking motions to give it some bold stripes of color and texture. I used a wide range of orange pencils and even a white colored pencil to add highlights. Again, I used a lot of paper from this kit to put behind my flower.

IMG_8440

Card #6: 3-D Embossed Foil Card

For this card I selectively cut out a piece of the pattern paper, so the large butterfly could be my focal image. The 3-D embossing folder is fabulous!! Just look at all the detail and shine!

IMG_8441

Card #7: Banner & Birds Card

You can probably tell that I really love my faux stitch banner dies. I keep them out on my desk. I stamped out and colored in the birds from the stamp set. I used my Arteza Everblend Art Markers to color them in.

IMG_8436

Card #8: Pattern Paper Flower Bouquet Card

I again stamped the flowers onto a piece of pattern paper; however, this time I cut them out and adhered them to a piece of the Audrey Blue card stock. I used a light pink colored pencil over the petals to add detail to the flowers and bring cohesion to my bouquet.

IMG_8437

Card #9: Thank You Flower Frame Card

This is my least favorite card, but I wanted to include it just the same. I should include more of my cards that I chalk up to, “I tried.” Lol! I cut the flowers out of the pattern paper–I thought I was being clever, but I should have just used the whole piece of paper. I glued them around my oval frame die cut and my sentiment. I glued on this bright green frame because I felt the frame got lost behind all these flowers. I think I’d be fun if people posted their, “I Tried” cards for us all to see. 🙂

IMG_8439

Card #10: Repeat

Arteza Everblend Art Markers: Watermelon Pink A487 & Raspberry Red A45, Amber Yellow A9424 & Desert Sand A9421, Brandy Rose A2596 & Cocoa Brown A2499, Pumpkin Orange A9423 & Vermilion A422

I love this fall time card. It was fast and easy to put together, and I love how it turned out. It’s amazing what you can do with just one stamp sometimes. I used the leaf sprig and stamped it repeatedly over my kraft panel. I used my new Arteza Everblend Markers to color these leaves in various fall colors. The metallic paper behind it is just fabulous. I’m going to used more metallic papers in my card crafting.

5 Cards, 1 Kit | MFT Flowers in Bloom | Tips for Photographing Cards

Hello and welcome!! I love it when card kits include art mediums. MFT’s June kit included Color Burst watercolors. This is a medium I never tried before. I had heard of it, but it didn’t interest me. It took a card kit to get me to try them. I had a lot of fun working with these powdered watercolors, and it was mesmerizing to watch them burst into life when mixed with water. The speckled effects you can get with these are gorgeous and unique.

The kit also included some watercolor paper by Ken Oliver. I loved the bright whiteness of it. It reminded me of the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Card Stock. It was fun to try, but I’ll stick with my Arches watercolor paper which can take on a lot more water than the Ken Oliver paper.

I used many different techniques to create these these cards, but my favorite is the metallic watercolors on black card stock card. This floral stamp set lent itself perfectly for this technique. I love a large floral stamp sets like this one.

At the end of my video, I included a new product I use to take pictures of my cards on. I also show you how I take pictures of my cards for my blog, Instagram and Facebook.

Thank you for stopping by! Links to the products I used are listed below. The MFT June kit is sold out; however, I have links to all the products from the kit which you can buy separately.

5 Cards, 1 Kit | Spellbinders June Kit 2019 | Super Chill

This is the fist time I’ve ever created cards with a Spellbinders card kit. I saw it advertised, and I was amazed with how much product it included. The one thing that really sold me on it was the dies for the heart shaped glasses. I felt like I really needed that in my stash. Lol! I loved this kit! I only created 5 cards with it for this video, but I could have created tons more. I’m going to have some of my crafty friends over soon to help me use up the rest of the goodies from this kit.

10 Cards, 1 Kit |Hero Arts May Card Kit 2019

Happy summer, everyone! I can finally say that! Yay! I have a really fun collection of cards to show you all today! I adore Hero Art’s May 2019 card kit. It’s filled with darling little images of scissors, a paint brushes, yarn and knitting needles, (just to name a few of my favorites)–there’s something for almost every type of crafter. Personally, I am a crafter-of-all-trades; I love to paint and color and sew and knit and crochet–I love it all!

I must admit that even though I love these stamps and dies, it sat on my desk for a while. All of the small images kinda overwhelmed me; I’m more comfortable designing cards with larger images. However, once I got started playing with this kit, that overwhelming feeling floated away. Below you’ll find pictures of all my cards, my video tutorial, and links to the supplies I used.
