Farmers Make Such a Difference

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today.

I live in the middle of farm country which has given me a first-hand view of the difficulties farmers have experienced this year, at least in our area. The weather has not been kind to them - flooding out crops or flooding even before the crops were planted.

Since they've been on my mind, I decided to use two Raisin Boat stamp sets (Homegrown and Flourishing Thoughts) to make a card to send to a good friend who is a farmer.

And here's a tip - when you go to the Victorine Originals (SumMore Fun) online store, be sure to check out the pricing options before you place the set in the shopping cart. Many of the stamp sets have a temporary liquidation price and/or a used price, either of which will save you some money.

But I digress. Here is my card...


I normally color with Copic markers, but for this card I chose to use my Prisma Watercolor Pencils instead. 



The sentiments (the front and the inside) are both from the Flourishing Thoughts stamp set.

Speaking of the inside of my card, here it is...




I hope you have SumMore Fun today:

Foiled Floral Cards

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The cards I am sharing with you use the Victorine Originals Floral and Sayings stamp set.
On these cards, I tried my hand at foiling for the first time!  I love the shiny metallic finish it gives, but it is hard to capture that in photos.  For this anniversary card, I stamped the floral bouquet from the Floral and Sayings stamp set onto white paper using VersaMark ink and heat embossed with regular white embossing powder.  I always use my stamp platform when embossing!  I then ran the stamped paper with a piece of foil (shiny side up) through my laminator (no carrier sheet).  When the paper was cool, I peeled off the foil to reveal the image!
I used various oval dies to cut around the floral design and added a Happy Anniversary sticker to the center.  I embellished with Pearl Pen dots in Gold and Ice White and white seam binding ribbon.
For my second card, I followed the same foiling process except I used an ultrafine embossing powder and it gave a more bold foiled image.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Floral and Sayings stamp set in black.  I added a double bow of Pink Midnight Trendy Twine in the bottom right corner.
See that metallic shine?!  It definitely makes an eye-catching card!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Music Rocks My World

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today.

Today's post might be a bit noisy - since it's featuring an amazing drum set. 



Just look at the amazing detail on the drum set:



The stamps that I used on this card are from the Raisin Boat Rock Star stamp set. I am certain I'll be using this stamp set again and again.
