Here's a quick look at the May 2019 Myths and Legends card kit...

I am loving this month's kit so much! So many adorable stamps and beautiful papers!
Let's dive right in and check out the cards I created so we can keep hopping along... 

Collection One: Nessie
I simplified the sketch for my first card because I just couldn't cover up these pretty papers!
I kept with the circle theme throughout the card putting the focal image in a circle. I masked my image to blend the waves but realized that it makes it look like Nessie is floating over the water... lol... well, I went back over and blended lightly again this time going over Nessie and it's still hard to see. Oh well... I'm still loving it! Rather than cut a scalloped trim for the edge I decided to cut a strip of the scallops in one of the beautiful papers in the kit. Love the mix of colors! To finish this card off I added those five sequins inside the circles... love the simple but fun touch it gives the card!

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copics ~ BG11, BG13, BG32; BV000, BV04
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
MFT Make Waves stencil

Collection Two: Pretty Little Rainbows
I loved that one of the sketches was for a circle shaped card! So fun! I started by cutting my card base from the Sweet Corn card stock. I used a large circle die to cut this out. I then die cut a scalloped circle out of the pretty rainbow papers. I stamped a combination of the stars repeatedly over the rainbow paper and adhered it to the card base. I stamped the adorable pegasus stamp and colored it in. I fussy cut it out and popped it up on the card. I stamped the sentiments and adhered them to the card. The last touch for this one is that faux bow I made with the pretty ribbon in the kit. I just tied a knot and cut the ends to look like a bow. I used a glue dot to adhere it to the card.

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copics ~ R81, R85, YR00, YR02, YR24, Y000, Y02, YG0000, YG21, G000, B0000, B000, N0, N2
Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, and Spun Sugar Distress Ink
MFT Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips

Collection Three: Fairy's Garden
So, I've become a bit obsessed with making cloud backgrounds... I just love them!! I knew for this sketch I just had to make another one. I kept the layers simple for this card so the focal image could... well, just be the focal image! Lol! I tied the pretty twine around the top panel before adhering it to the Sour Apple card base. To finish off this card, I adhered the pink paper flower and added a bunch of sequins to the center of the flower. So pretty!

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copics ~ E000, E51, E55, E57, E59, RV10, RV11, RV21
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
MFT Mini Cloud Edges stencil 

Collection Four: Gnomie Home
I adore how this card turned out and it was so simple!! I loved this forest scene paper and I layered it on another piece of beautiful green paper in the kit. I adhered these layers to a white card base. I then cut a strip of the bright green paper and stamped the sentiment from the exclusive sentiment stamp set by Scrapping for Less only available in the Banana Split subscription. Love love love this sentiment!! I stamped it using VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. I stamped the adorable gnome couple and colored them in. I fussy cut them and then popped them up on the card. I adhered the sentiment strip using liquid glue and then added the sequins.

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copics ~ B04, B24, R14, R20, R27, E000, E51, E55, E57, E59, G12, G14, Y000, Y06,
