Soda-Lighted We're Friends!

Hello, this is Jeanette from the design team. I'm soda-lighted you've stopped by the blog today!

Don't you just love a play on words? I know I do. So when I find a stamp set like the SumMore Fun Soda-Lighted set, I gravitate toward them. Just look at the fun sentiment, which of course is in the set...

to be your friend

You can also see that I've added some clear dots (Cloud 9 Rain Dots) to some of the bubbles, as well as for some embellishment in the bottom left corner of the card. 

The soda cans on the front of the card, which I colored with Copic Markers, are fairly large, which looks great on the card front, but I'm glad there's also a smaller can in the stamp set, which I used on the inside of my card.

I hope you'll head over to the SumMore Fun store and check out this stamp set as well as all the other goodies there.

And don't forget to spend some time with your friends as often as you can.

Giddy Up Cards

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The cards I am sharing with you use two Raisin Boat stamp sets called Giddy Up! and Urban Cowgirl.  Those sets work so well together!
First up, the sleek masculine card.  I promised masculine cards for you this month, and here it is!  The stitched background decoration was from the Urban Cowgirl set and the sentiment is from Giddy Up!.  They were stamped in Pumice Stone Distress Oxide.  I love how the Distress Oxides POP off of the dark cardstock!  I used my stamp platform to ensure all of my stamps were lined up perfectly and to double stamp the Distress Oxides to make them brighter.
I stamped the horse head from Giddy Up! using Versafine Onyx Black ink and die cut around it using a GMD slash stitched oval die.  I also matted behind that with the larger size of die cut.  Those were popped up with foam tape.  The only embellishment was three silver adhesive dots at the bottom.
Of course I had to make a card with pink for those cowgirls too!  It was made in the same manner, but this one is more rustic than the previous card.
The main differences are the stamped background stitching in Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide and the coloring in of the horse.  I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink and my aqua brush to watercolor the horse.  I thought it matched the background cardstock well!  I also stamped the sentiment in black on this card to make it stand out better from the brown.
Make sure you join me again next Wednesday for another set of cards that can be loved by guys, gals, and kids alike!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Elegance and Grace

Hello, Jeanette here from the design team. I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. For today's card I am using the On Pointe stamp set. I've always thought ballerinas are so elegant in their fancy dresses and I'm mesmerized by the grace with which they move. This stamp set captures both of those ideas - elegant and grace.

Just look at her -
She's a true beauty!

And she's not the only ballerina in the set:

I wanted her to be the focal part of my card so I multi-matted her to make her stand out. I also stamped the pair of ballerina shoes in the bottom right corner. I liked the bold stripe for a bit of grounding, but I also altered one stripe of it by placing a piece of skinny Washi Tape on it - the white strip that has the hearts on it.

I also decorated the inside of my card:

Be sure to head over to the SumMore Fun store to take a look at both the On Pointe stamp set and all the other goodies there, too. You'll surely find some bargains!
