Scrapping for Less Project

My Favorite Things “You Gnome Me” Stamp Set

COVER12

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Monday to You!  Today for my SFL Design Team Project I am sharing a card I made with the super cute “You Gnome Me” stamp Set by MFT.  I love scene building and this set was perfect for it:)

SFL 2

I didn’t create a tutorial for my project but here is how I made it:)  I started my background with Distress Oxide Inks and a few stencils for the hillside and the brick wall.  The colors I used for the wall are Vintage Photo and Fossilized Amber.  For the Hillside I used Twisted Citron, shading lighter for the bottom hill and darker for the top.  I used masking paper to section off the wall and hills.  I colored in my images with copic markers and added a bit of shimmer with some gems from my stash.  This stamp set is available at the Scrapping for Less Shop, check it out!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a Beautiful day!  Hugs, Tina

Happy Crafting to You!

Try It Out Tuesday

Hello and Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends! Today for my Try It Out Tuesday I wanted to share a card I made with the New to me Avery Elle Magnolia Stamp Set. I just love magnolias and fell in love with this stamp the moment I saw it!  I think it would be fun to color in with any coloring medium:)  I thought it would be fun to create a thank you card with vellum and to color it with my distress ink cubes.  I love the softness that the vellum colors give.  You can watch how I created this card on my YouTube Channel, Just Click Here.  Now time to grab your coffee friends and let’s get to crafting! Have a beautiful day! Hugs, Tina
