Flowers for Your Birthday

Hello, Jeanette here from the design team. I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today!

Beth showed you a gorgeous birthday card (Purple and Gold Birthday Card) on Wednesday and I'm here to share yet another card using the same stamp set that Beth used - Victorine Originals Florals and Sayings. I just recently attained this stamp set and immediately fell in love with it. It is truly a gorgeous set with lots of images and sentiments.


The floral pieces will look awesome no matter what color you use to stamp them. For my card I decided to go with black ink to give it a more classy (almost elegant) look.




Have I mentioned how much I love this stamp set!?!?!?

It's just one of the many stamp sets (and other products, too) offered at the SumMore Fun online store

Purple and Gold Birthday Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The card I am sharing with you uses one of my all time FAVORITE stamp sets...Victorine Originals' Floral and Sayings.  You can see several other cards that I have created with that stamp set HERE.
Using my stamp platform, I inked up the flower with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink.  I wanted a little variation, so I re-inked the stamp touching only the edges with Dusty Concord DO and stamped over the flower again.  You can see it in the picture below if you look closely.  Then I stamped the sentiment in black ink, once again using the stamp platform for perfect placement.
I added metallic gold thread around the sentiment and gold Pearl Pen accents.  Other products used include GMD stitched rectangle die, GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die, white, black, and gold cardstock as well as paper from TPS Tattered & Worn paper pad. Adhesive used was ATG.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Goin' Places

As one of the design team members, I can sincerely tell you that we are always thankful for YOU - the ones who come to the blog to check out what we've been making. I hope you are inspired every single time you stop by the blog. For today's card I'm making the very first card I've made with the Raisin Boat Big Rig Party stamp set. Oh what a fun set it is!

Just look at it:



I envision making lots - and lots - of cards with that truck. It is a great stamp! And the companion pieces make it so easy to add graffiti, logos, and more to the truck itself. 

Maybe one of the reasons I like the truck so much is it takes me back to my childhood. No, my dad was not a truck driver. My dad was a Minute Man for Boeing and one of the traits of the job was we moved every 3-6 months all over the western half of the United States. Suffice it to say, I was a passenger in a car - A LOT! And the scene in front of us was often the semi rigs that traveled the roads. Truckers were a great group in those days. On more than one occasion, we had truckers help us out in a bind. So I respected them and the work they did, even as a small child.

In honor of those memories, 
I created this card:



Those truckers were indeed going places and it seemed as though I was following along. LOL!

It doesn't show up well in the photo, but I added some rhinestones to the round lights/reflectors on the back of the truck.



I also added some white and star brads to the night sky.




Enjoy your day - try to make time for some crafting! And head over to the SumMore Fun store to check out all the great stamps and products there.
