My Favorite Things “You Gnome Me” Stamp Set


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:)


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!

Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends! Today for another Scrapping for Less Project I made a card with the Delightful “Parisian Holiday” Stamp Set by SugarPea Designs and La-La Land Crafts Vintage Bike.  I thought the two complimented each other beautifully.  I distressed the rounded rectangle frame with Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.  Also added a bit of color behind my scene with more Distress Oxide in the colors of Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  I colored the images with copic markers and die cut the adorable vintage bike with silver foil cardstock.  For finishing touches I added a few silver stars.  Check out the Scrapping for Less Shop for the items used today for my Design Team Project!  Grab your coffee friends and lets get to crafting:)  Have a Beautiful Day!  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Tina

Hot Diggity Dog, Such a Cute Stamp Set!!!

Happy Saturday to You!! I hope your having a fantastic weekend!  Today I am sharing my Design Team Project for Scrapping for Less:)  Every Month SFL Features a Company and this month is Neat & Tangled.  I am using the “Puppy’s Favorite Things”  Stamp set along with the Nice & Neat Dies that coordinate.  You can purchase these at the SFL shop Click Here. I love the die that cuts out the arms of the puppy so you can tuck his favorite things in his hands:)  How cute is that!!  I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir Markers and arranged then in a wreath pattern behind the puppy.  I popped up a few of the images with foam tape for a 3-D effect and added some glossy accents as well.  For finishing touches I added some Kennedy Grace Sequins topped with a couple dots of Nuvo crystal drops .  Such a Fun card to make! Wishing you a wonderful rest of the weekend!  Thanks for visiting!  Hugs, Tina
