Monochromatic Eagle Card and SNEAK PEEK!

Happy Sunday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  This time, I created a masculine birthday card with some of SumMore Fun's red rubber AND photopolymer stamps.
SumMore Fun is in the process of retiring all of their red rubber stamps, but I have several of them that I love and just had to share this technique with you.  Even though the nature stamps I used on this card are not available for purchase, you could easily re-create this card using pine trees from the Winter Heart and Sole or Merry Nature photopolymer sets.  Any wildlife stamp could replace the eagle such as the Got Game? photopolymer set.  To make this card, I simply used monochromatic inks from, starting with the lightest in the back and darkest in the front.  The ink colors I used include: Sugar Cookie, Camel. Leather, and Dark Chocolate.  The eagle was stamped on a different paper and cut out with my Scan N Cut and popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment was from the Raisin Boat Varsity Locker stamp set.  I added patterned paper and matted the panels with dk brown cardstock to stick with the monochromatic theme.  I recommend using a stamp platform with this technique so you can get the exact placement you want with all of your stamps.
Now for some EGG-citing news!! SumMore Fun will be having a RE-RELEASE of some awesome stamp sets on July 18th!  I had never seen these sets before, so they were new to me, and I absolutely fell in LOVE with them.  Here is a sneak peek of one of my cards that will be shared later.  Stay tuned for more news on this release as well as awesome inspiration from the DT!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Crocus Cravings Birthday and a Peek at What's to Come

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today! 

I have a birthday card to share with you today and also a SURPRISE! No, it's not a surprise birthday party. It's a SNEAK PEEK of what's to come.

But first, my card.

I used the SumMore Fun Crocus Craving stamp set to make this card. I stamped directly onto designer paper and then colored the image with Faber-Castell Polychromo Colored Pencils.

The coloring is soft and subtle, which I think goes well with the lovely flower.

Now, about that Sneak Peek I mentioned. There's going to be a super cute NEW RELEASE at SumMore Fun next week and the design team has been having a lot of fun getting ready for it.

Take a look...

How fun is that!?!?!

I know you're going to want to check back to see some more SNEAK PEEKs this week... and then to see the bundle (*gasp! Did I say Bundle???) that will be released next week.

Thanks again for stopping by the blog.

I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

Panda Birthday Card

Hello everyone!  Don't you just love it when your kids craft with you?  Beth from Beth's Beauties here, and today I am turning my blog post over to my son, Levi, to let you know what he did to make this birthday card for his brother.
First I stamped a panda from What a Zoo, Too! using black ink. Second, I put black cardstock behind it, and added an action wobble. I wanted a fun background to go with pandas, so I chose green cardstock and embossed it with a zig zag embossing folder.
I added two stripes of washi tape to the green background.  Finally, I used a Silhouette Cameo and cut the 8 and Connor out and glued them to the paper.  Now, it is ready to give to him on his birthday!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
