Day 25 Challenge – Animals

Monday, May 25th, 2020

Hello and happy Monday, my friend! Deb here for the design team, sharing with you. Today the Scrap ‘N Stamp  day 25 challenge prompt is animals. I love animals, and you could easily tell if you ever looked through my stamp collection! The most difficult part was deciding which animals to include. If you’re not familiar with the Scrap ‘N Stamp challenge, it’s happening all month long, & everyone can participate. Each day there is a new prompt, or theme. Just create your project with the theme of the day, and share it on the challenge Facebook page HERE. Use the hashtag #SNSCHALLENGE. Everyone who shares a project is automatically entered to win a $50 Gift Certificate to Scrap ‘N Stamp!

DAY 25 – ANIMALS

I decided to use a set that hasn’t seen ink in a while. It’s called Beach Bunnies, by MFT. There’s also coordinating dies, to make life even easier.

Day 25 Challenge - Animals

Too cute, right?! And depending on where you live, you may have already ventured to a beach, just to feel the breeze.

CARD DETAILS

On a piece of smooth white cardstock, stamp the bunnies and bird images from the MFT Beach Bunnies set in Tuxedo Black ink. I also used the MFT Sweet Somebunny set for the flowers & butterfly images. Next, choose your favourite alcohol markers to colour. I use a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers, because that’s what I have! Now, use the coordinating dies of both sets to die cut the image.

Take a blue panel of cardstock and a small circle die. Die cut 3 circles, placed as shown above. Next, use the MFT Winter Stencil Strips – dots pattern – and blend on Broken China distress oxide ink.  Now, attach the blue panel to a bright yellow card base, with foam tape. Stamp the sentiment from the Beach Bunnies stamp set onto a strip of white cardstock, and then attach it and all of the images to the card front.

All that dimension adds so much fun! I think this card would cheer up anyone who has had to ‘self isolate’ lately, due to health issues.

JOIN THE CHALLENGE!

I’m looking forward to see what you create for day 25 of the challenge! Which animals will you choose? Remember that you can still post from days already past, but please wait to post for future themes/prompts until that day arrives.

Quick & Easy Thank You Card

Monday, February 24th, 2020

We’ve all been there – you need a card quickly, but don’t have much time! Hello friend – Deb here from the Design team, and today I’m sharing a quick & easy thank you card that you can pull together in a jiffy. Another way of using this card is to create it in advance, but just leave off the sentiment. Then, it’s ready for when you need it – just add the sentiment appropriate to the situation at hand!

COZY COMPANIONS THANK YOU

Who doesn’t love a bear in a cozy chair, with a mug of hot chocolate?! This cutie is ready say ‘thank you’, or even just thinking of you.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

Wouldn’t you just love to join him in a cup of cocoa? I would!

CARD DETAILS

On a small piece of white cardstock, stamp the bear image from the MFT Cozy Companions set in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  Colour in the image using Copic markers. For the chair, I chose greens G09 & G03; B00 & B02 for the sweater; E29 & E37 browns for the bear and Y28 (which is a Lionet Gold) for the stool & chair legs. Next, use the coordinating Cozy Companions dies to die cut the bear.

For the background, use the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle dies and cut a smaller light blue panel, and a larger white panel. Use a blending tool to add some Salty Ocean Distress ink around the edges of each panel.  Use the Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Penny Black Sentiment Collection in the  upper right corner. Now, layer the pieces together. Glue the white panel onto a light blue card base, then attach the blue panel & the die cut bear with foam tape.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

I think that the die cutting, along with the stitched layers adds just the right amount of interest & depth for this card. And no one needs to know how easy it was to pull together! I think that the part that took me the longest was deciding on colours.

SUPPLIES

You will love the adorable scenes that  you can create with the MFT Cozy Companions stamp set. And I’m always the first to say that you should always get the coordinating die set – it just adds so much interest to a project when you add dimension.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

Sunday, December 15th, 2019

Hi crafty friends and welcome back. It’s Sandi here and today I’ve created a fun Valentine’s card to share with you using My Favorite things products and Copic Markers called a Warm and Feathered Valentines.


Yeah, I’m so excited to tell you that Scrap ‘N Stamp has Copic Markers Back in stock for all your colouring adventures.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

I started by blending Distress Oxides for the background. Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry. Then I placed the Lots of Hearts Stencil over this and used the darkest color, Picked Raspberry to blend in some hearts. When the ink was dry, I splatted a bit of white paint to give the illusion of snow.

The final step for the background, I white heat embossed the snowflakes and sentiment.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

I took advantage of the recent Memory Box Die sale and scooped up these Alpine Trees which I die cut to create my snow covered trees and frosty mountain. The white background really helps to make that little owl POP.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

Finally, I stamped my owl in copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with my Copic Markers and then die cut him out with the coordinating dies.

The sentiment set I used, Birdie Brown greetings is currently out of stock so I have linked to Greetings Galore which is a similar set and has lots of different sentiments you could use on this card.

That’s it for me today, hope you enjoyed the project. I have linked the supplies I used for A Warm and Feathered Valentines card below for you and until next time, Happy Stamping
