Scrapping for Less ~ Past Card Kit ~ April 2018 Colors of Spring

Hello crafty friends! Oh my goodness... am I ever glad to be back!! I took a bit of a hiatus from my regular posts with Scrapping for Less while my family has been moving across the country from cold New Jersey to warm and sunny California! What an adventure! 

We're still slowly getting settled and my studio is a bit of a disaster, but thankfully I was able to work on some projects before the move. Today, I have some inspiration for you using a past card kit called Colors of Spring from April 2018. Here's a link to the original reveal and hop for the kit April 2018 Colors of Spring card kit Reveal & Blog Hop.

And I have four cards to share today using the stamps and leftovers scraps entirely from the card kit! The only thing I supplemented was the white card bases for the cards. I used white card stock from my stash, but everything else is still from the kit. The value of these kits is amazing!!

Sadly, I don't have my ingredients sheets so I can't tell you all the products I used. All I wrote down on my little post it note is the Copic markers I used so, for this sweet card 
I used the following Copic markers:
Mouse ~ N0, N2, N4, R00, R20
Flower ~ R00, R20, R32, YG0000, YG93, YG95
Grass ~ YG05, YG17, YG95
Rain/Sky ~ BG000, BG01, B0000

I just adore this beautiful Stamping Bella stamp! So fun to color her up!
I used the following Copic markers:
Skin ~ E00, E000, R20
Hair ~ E41, E42
Dress/Hairband ~ V000, V06, V09
Background ~ B0000

Here's a close up. Isn't she the sweetest!?

Are you noticing a similarity in the cards?! I used the same sketch with all of them. I love to do that! It makes for an easy variety in cards with little thinking because the design is done.
For this card I changed things up by adding a second circle... I adore the wellies!! I need these in my life! I did have some fun paper piecing the umbrella for this card.
I used the following Copic markers for this card:
Frog ~ YG05, YG23, YG25
Raincoat ~ Y06, Y13, Y17, Y35
Grass ~YG17, YG67
Sky ~ B0000
Puddle ~ B0000, B000, B02
Umbrella Handle ~ R20, R32
Wellies ~ R000, R00, R20, R32, Y06, Y17, Y35

Here's a close up. I used the sentiment stickers in this collection for an easy sentiment... just adhered them to a strip of white card stock that I die cut with a banner die.

My last card uses the exclusive Brutus Monroe stamp called Bloom. 
I used the following Copic markers:
Flowers ~ YR0000, YR12, YR21, R00, R20, R32
Stems ~ YG63, YG67
Background ~ B0000

I didn't color the dandelion very much. I just added some touches of white Prismacolor pencil to lighten the black ink. I really love the way the daisy turned out! So pretty!

Well, that's it for me! I hope you enjoyed the cards I've shared today. Hopefully, if you have the kit I've given you some inspiration. And if you don't already own the kit, there are some in the shop available right here ---> April 2018 Colors of Spring card kit.

Thank you friends for checking out my blog post!
See ya next time.
Inky Hugs!


  1. Love the design of your cards using the circles

  2. How do you make the background paper for the purple one or does it come that way?

    1. The purple paper is in the card kit! There are a couple sheets with different colors... so pretty!!
