Happy Howl-ween!

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

Here it is the middle of October, so for those of you who make/send Halloween cards, it's time to get them made. I hope this cute little stamp will get your creativity running (but it's best if you don't cover your head while running). 


Isn't that hound just adorable? It's part of the Raisin Boat Howl-ween Hounds stamp set, which is currently at liquidation prices in the SumMore Fun store, so be sure to check it out before it's gone.


There is just so much to like about this set!

Kick Cancer's Butt Card

Hello and good Wednesday morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with this card.  October is a great month to remember those who are battling cancer.  This card went to the mom of a friend of mine who is doing just that.  The stamps I used on it are from the SumMore Fun You Can stamp set.  Pssst...you can get that whole set for ONLY $5.99 right now!
The focal point of the card was created by taking a 4" square of white cardstock and the cancer ribbon stamp from the You Can stamp set and doing the wreath builder technique.  The inks I used were Distress Oxides in Dusty Concord and Pine Needles.  After that was fully dry, I die cut around it with a GMD Pleated Square die.  I added an accent on top of that with another die cut square with a Totally Grape Trendy Twine cancer ribbon and enamel dots.
I used a couple colors of patterned paper for the background of the card and wrapped Totally Grape and Twisted Lime Trendy Twines around it.  The sentiment is also from the You Can stamp set and was stamped in black.  The finishing touch was a few more glitter enamel dots.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

It's a Wash

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

I love LOVE the many watercolor wash cards I see on blogs, Instagram, Facebook, etc. Impressive! I am normally a stamp and color kind of gal but for today's card, I decided to try my hand at the watercolor wash technique.



I just did a random swish (is that a word) of color with watercolor paints and a soaked paint brush.



Once the watercolor was completely dry, I stamped the GORGEOUS Victorine Originals Large Sunflower stamp with a rich black ink and stamped on top of the watercolored piece. 

I didn't use the entire image (it would have fit but I decided I liked this look better for this card).



This card was so easy to make and I like the look. I hope you do, too!
