Trio of Beach Cards

Hello!  How are you today?
Today I have a trio of cards that I made from the So Jelly Mini collection 
from Scrapping for Less' June 2017 Flavor of the Month Card Kit.  
Teresa and Kim have several of these mini collections left over and 
so I thought it would be a good time to dig it out of my stash and give it some new life.  
It needed to breathe again.  
Plus it goes fantastically well with this month's At the Beach Flavor of the Month Card Kit 
that we just revealed two days ago.

At the Beach Card

Hello!  Happy 1st day of Sneak Peeks!

Today I have a card I made using Collection 3 of the At the Beach June Flavor of the Month Card Kit from Scrapping for Less.

These puffy stickers are beyond ADORBS!!!  Plus they go perfectly with the pattern paper that was chosen for this collection.  I don’t want to give too much away but one thing I can say is, “You are going to LOVE this kit!”

So if you haven’t signed up for a monthly subscription (at a fantastic discounted price) then be sure to rush over to the Flavor of the Month page.  By signing up for a subscription is the only way to insure that you get a kit.  They tend to sell out fast.

Now onto my card.  I used my Stitched Circle Dies from Gina Marie Designs to cut out a circle and offset it in the lower righthand corner of my card.  I also cut the same circle out of some wavy striped pattern paper from the collection that reminded me of sandy hills on the beach.  I glued on some of the sequins that come in the kit and added some Glossy Accents dots to resemble water droplets.  I think it turned out super cute!  I can’t wait for you to see the kit, so make sure you check back each day to see what the Design Team has done for you with their Sneak Peek projects.

Things are Looking up!

Hello!
Today I’m sharing a super, too cute, over the top adorable stamp set from La La Land, called Things are Looking Up.
Things are Looking Up

I masked off my grouping of stamped images with Inkadinkadoo Masking Paper in order to color in the background with my Distress Brushes and Distress Oxide Inks in Broken China and Peeled Paint.  I’ve really enjoyed learning this technique with masking images and brushing on background color.  The Gina Marie Designs Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies adds just the right touch to finish off the card.
To check out another card I did with this technique, click here.

O-Fish-Ally Over the Hill

Good afternoon, everyone!  It’s Stacy here with a card I made for my father-in-law’s upcoming birthday.  He and my husband are big time fishermen.  They love to hunt and fish as much as they can.  My husband even has 6 of his “monster trophies” up on the wall in his man cave.  His dad took him fishing as soon as he was able to walk, so it’s in his blood.  So when Art Impressions came out with this stamp set, Reel Great Guys, I knew I just had to have it.  It is the spitting image of my husband and his dad crammed into a small fishing boat trying to catch that next “monster”.  
I used my Distress Oxide inks and the new Distress Brushes by Tim Holtz.  After I stamped the image on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, I masked it off with a piece of Inkadinkadoo Masking Paper. I then used the inks and the brushes, sweeping them from side to side, to create the green/blue waters of Minnesota and the clear blue summer sky.  Next, I carefully removed the mask and colored the image in with my Copic markers.  I popped up the “monster” fish with foam squares so it looked it was fiercely jumping out of the water.   I used my MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle dies to cut out the panel, which I mounted on a panel of gold mirror cardstock and a piece of hunter green cardstock, both from my stash.  I stamped the images from the stamp set with Versa Fine Black Onyx ink.

10 Cards Doodlebug Down on the Farm

Hello!  I’m just “chicken” in! 
 Ha ha ha

Isn’t the Down on the Farm collection by Doodlebug one of their cutest collections ever?  

I had a chance to preview this collection at Creativation this year. I could barely stand the wait before I could get it into my little hands. 

I plan to make a lot of cards with it, or until I get sick of it. But I don’t see that happening any time soon. 
It’s toooooo cute!!

For these 10 cards I used the icon stickers, the enamel sprinkles shapes, the 6x6 paper pad, several doodlepop 3D stickers, the odds & ends die cuts, the chit chat die cuts and the one cut apart sheet from the big 12x12 collection pack. I pulled in some matching solid colored cardstock from my stash. I used Nuvo Glossy Drops in Black and Bubblegum to add a little something-something.   

I hope you like them and find some inspiration.

Birthday Wishes with Avery Elle

Good Morning!  Hello, it's Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma up on the SFL blog today with an adorable birthday card.  I'm trying to build up my stash of birthday cards since right now we are in between holidays.

I was sent this absolutely too cute stamp set as part of my Design Team package.  It is called Party Pals by Avery Elle.  OMG!  It made me squeell with delight when I pulled it out of the package.  My niece loves kitties so I'll save it for her birthday.

I decided to try my hand at making a scene with the two kitties and the banner.  I colored them up with my Copic markers.  I've been practicing coloring and blending, and although I feel a tad bit more confident with my coloring, I know I still have much more to learn.  I've never taken a coloring class before.  I've thought about it, but never jumped right in.  Is there a class out there that you think I should try?  If so, leave me a comment below and I'll go check it out.

One thing I use my alcohol markers for is to tint embellishments like clear bling and such.  And that is what I did on this card.  I wanted some bling to match my peachy colored cardstock, that I also colored with my markers.  So, I took the same omatching marker and colored my Pink n Main Glossy Silver Dots to make them match the cardstock.  Brilliant!!  If you haven't tried this, you really must.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you like my card,

Stacy
