Hello!  I am guest designing this month for Scrapping for Less and I am happy to show you the November Flavor of the Month card kit, A Vintage Christmas.

Below are two pictures of two varieties of the kit you can choose from.  There is the Banana Split and Double Dip Sundae.

Today I am showcasing the Banana Split kit.  I made 5 cards using many elements that came in the kit.  Although I just made 5 cards, the kit has plenty to make many more.

The first card I made using these adorable bell stamps from Scrapping for Less.  So easy to color and they make a nice focal point on your card.

I’m all about ephemera, so for my second card I had to use the ephemera pieces that came in the kit.  I used the largest button and accented it with some red twine from the kit.

For my third card I used the stamp set from Sunny Studio.  I colored the house to coordinate with the colors on the pattern paper.

On my fourth card I used the Noel die.  To get this die in your kit, you will need to order the banana split option.  I cut it out from gold mirror card stock from my stash to make it pop and paired it with the lovely pattern paper in the kit!  It is a really pretty die!

Finally, my favorite card was made using this sweet little Santa stamp from Your Next Stamp.  This Santa was an awesome image to color.

Not 2 Shabby & Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop | Digital Stamp | Not2Shabby Better with a Friend

Collab Graphic N2S & CLP (3)

20191118_202555

Hello!  Welcome to my blog where I have the privilege of participating in a collaboration blog hop between Not2Shabby and Coffee Loving Cardmakers.

Today I am featuring a digital stamp from the Not2Shabby Shop called, Better with a Friend.  I printed the image out on my laser printer onto some Bristol Vellum card stock.  I printed the image at 26% scale and I think it came out the perfect size.

I then colored the image using my PrismaColors and added a little highlight with a white jelly roll pen.  I don’t usually gravitate towards digital stamps, but I have to say this one was a breeze to print and color.  I love how Jamie drew this image and I’m safe to bet most people would think this is a stamped image.

So now to the fun part!  The giveaway!!  I have included links and details of the giveaway below.  There is also a process video on my YouTube channel of how I put this card together.  Enjoy and good luck!

*NEW* Jane Davenport Artomology Collection | Spellbinders

Hello!  Today I am featuring some Jane Davenport goodies from Spellbinders.  These products were so much fun to work with and very different than what I usually do.  Sometimes it is so nice to get out of your comfort zone and try something new!  You never know, it may turn into a new obsession.

The first card I made was with the GORGEOUS Tousled Face Die from the Artomology Collection.  I made the alcohol ink backgrounds a little bit ago, but thought this orange one would look great with the die cut out of black card stock.  That face detail is awesome!  I added a couple flowers from my stash to add some interest.

20190607_171308

The next card is using a die from the same collection called, Mums the Word.  I had another alcohol ink background that was not so bright so I grabbed some pearlescent pink card stock and die cut out the mum to pair with the pink, blue, and purple colors in the background.  The mum die has endless possibilities!

20190607_171258

Finally I had the Palette Pastel in Birthday Suit from the Making Faces Collection.  I LOVE make-up and this palette screamed at me as it has a good selection of skin tones and a pop of color to make up the faces.  I paired it with the I Came, I Saw, I Contoured pack of face prints and I LOVE the way it turned out.  The pack of faces measure 6″x9″ but as you can see, you can cut them down to fit an A2 size card.  Love the soft looks you can create with the palette.

I do have a process video on how I created these cards.  If you would like to see, you can click here.  Direct links to the products I used are underlined above for easy reference.  Just click and a new window will pop up.

Which one is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by!

***********************************************

Hello! Today I am featuring 5 cards from the Scrapping for Less May card kit.  Now if you follow me on YouTube and/or Instagram, you know I just had carpal tunnel release surgery on my right hand.  When I agreed to work with the Scrapping for Less kit at the beginning of this year, I didn’t know it would be at the same time of my surgery.  That being said instead of making my usual 10 cards, I had to settle for 5, and I made the 5 cards with one hand!  This was challenging and interesting to say the least, especially since I am right handed.  So, please forgive any crooked cut lines as that is what I had the most trouble with.  Otherwise I kept my cards fairly simple and really enjoyed working with the kit.

I do have an unboxing video posted HERE (will open in new window) if you want to check out what comes in the kit.  I will have my 5 cards 1 kit video posted soon (if not already by the time you read this) to my YouTube channel, so make sure you head on over there and subscribe so you don’t miss that video and future videos.

Below you will find pictures of the cards I created. Thank you to Scrapping for Less for letting me work with your kit this month.  It was a lot of fun and I just love the theme!  Hope you all enjoy my cards!

Don’t forget to participate in the blog hop.

This next card I made used more Honey Bee stamps that fit perfectly with this hop!  I colored these images using my Prima Colored Pencils.  I absolutely love the bold lines in this stamp set.  There will be a video coming out soon showing how I made this card.  Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel (link below)!
