Hello Cardmakers! I hope you are doing well this morning. This month’s theme is all about encouragement. How about taking one of the words in the acronym above and making it your word for the coming month? My word is going to be motivation! Motivation to send out at least 3 cards a week to encourage someone. The design team and guest designers this month have created some absolutely fabulous designs with the card kit contents. Hop on through and take a look. One person I know who encourages people each and every day is Courtney Kreeber, she has helped design components of this month’s kit. Her group Handmade Happiness over on Facebook is all about encouraging each other. Who have you encouraged today? Check out this wonderful card kit centered around encouragement over on the Scrapping for Less website. Also check out the SFL blog post and make sure to enter the Rafflecopter. ~ Teresa, {SFL Owner}

Here's a quick look at the May 2020 Let's Encourage One Another card kit...








Such a darling kit!! I had so much fun creating cards to share with you today... 
let's get to the cards!




Collection One: Love Big
How cute is that Big Foot Benny?! I love him! I stamped him with black ink and colored him up with Copic markers. I trimmed the striped paper and adhered it to a card front of Sour Apple card stock measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2". I die cut the polka dot paper with my largest circle die (approx. 3-3/4" in diameter) and adhered it to the card. To create the background, I blended some light green and blue inks over the cloud stencils included in the Banana Split subscription. I added the chalk heart sticker to the background and popped up the sentiment from the Benny the Bigfoot stamp set by SFL. I also popped up Benny using foam squares. To finish off this card, I added one of the Jolee's flowers over top of the little flower in the stamped Bigfoot image.

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copic markers ~ W00, W1, W3, E000, E00, R00, R14, YG11, YG23
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX



Collection Two: Easy Peasy
As I mentioned yesterday in my Sneak Peek post, this collection is my absolute favorite!! The colors are gorgeous and that lemon, as well as the blossom, are so beautiful... not to mention the fabulous sentiments!! I can't get enough of this one!! Anywho... I just wanted to showcase the beautiful lemon for this card. I layered the pretty lemon slices with the strips of polka dot papers onto a 5 x 5" square white card base. I die cut the Lemon Drop and white card stocks with a couple of square dies from my stash. I adhered them together and then adhered them to the card. I then blended a bit of Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink (it's much lighter in person... not sure why it's so dark in the photo) in the top center portion of the white card stock. I colored the lemon with Copic markers, fussy cut it, and cleaned up the edges with a Memento Tuxedo black marker. I popped it up on the card with foam squares and then added a few of the enamel dots and tied a sweet bow with the yellow twine included in the collection. I love how this card turned out!

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copic markers ~ Y000, Y11, Y13, YG0000, YG11
Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Collection Three: Weather Together
The third collection in the card kit has a fun scene building stamp set that I can't wait to play with more! For my card today, I just focused on the pretty papers included in the collection and kept this design CAS. I did have fun stamping and coloring the sun stamp. I stamped it with a mix of yellow inks and then I colored the center with Copic markers. I adhered the die cut sun to the edge of the patterned paper and then popped up the whole piece with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment and die cut it with a banner die. I trimmed it and adhered it to the card. To finish off this card, I added the the three enamel dots to the side.

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copic markers ~ Y000, Y11, Y13
Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue

Collection Four: Little Lady
This card came together so fast!! I used four of the fabulous Little Lady Ephemera pieces to create this adorable and super quick card! And there are a whole bunch more pieces (as you can see in the background of my photo) to create a whole bunch more cards!! You may also recognize this card design from the current challenge in the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share Facebook group. I'm so happy to see it included in this month's sketches to download... check out the downloads here ---> May 2020 Sketch Sheet!
