Hopeful

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamps:

Wings Set and the word Hopeful from the set Oops A Daisy

For today's post I wanted to share a card using a truly versatile stamp set with you.  I chose to use the Smaller of the Monarch Butterfly Wings for my card today.  I made this card as a future card to send during the month of October which is breast Cancer Awareness month.




Card Recipe:
I stamped the Wings which I placed very closely together on a piece of vellum then used White embossing powder and heat set. Fussy cutting is not my favorite craft task but this was actually super simple and easy to do, so much so that I made a few more for a future project. I had some scraps of the patterned paper and lined them up and glued them to a piece of printer paper and die cut a nice rounded edge rectangle and applied thin strips of silver washi tape to hide the seams. I die cut a butterfly from a dark purple piece of cardstock to adhere the wings to using multi matte medium.  The sentiment was stamped using a pretty purple ink.  

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I used Tombow Extreme to affix the die cut rectangle to the front of an A2 sized top folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock. The butterfly was attached using Tombow glue and some Nuvo Drops in Silver Lining applied to give the body and tips of antennae some detail.  A few more drops of Nuvo were applied to finish off this card.

Good Morning crafty friends.
Amy here and its my day up on the blog
 to share a mixed media tag using
Raisin Boat's
Oops a Daisy set.


I started out using a piece of cardboard and shaped my tag. I then added modeling paste, paint and mica powder to start my color scheme.
I added a neat piece of paper with designs from my stash.
I added some washi tape with butterflies and some burlap.
I stamped my daisy image on watercolor paper and colored using color burst.
To finish it off I added some words...
Now is the time, be happy!!
Its true.
Happiness doesn't find you, it doesn't come from others.  It starts with you first.
So be happy!!!

May All Your Wishes Come True Birthday Card


Hello everyone,
DT Heather here and it is my day to take over the blog and I am always in need of birthday cards, but this would have also made a super cute wedding shower card.  I started with an A2 card base in Kraft and then cut a large banner out of some cute Kraft paper with pink polka dots from my crafty stash, I then cut out a circle in the middle of the banner .  I stamped a sentiment from the Raisin Boat Stamp Set Flourishing Thoughts (10271-Z) at the bottom of the banner.  I added some twine with a small bow at the top and then popped the banner up with some foam tape on the card base.  I then cut a circle out of Ivory card stock and stamped the super cute cake stamp from the Raisin Boat Stamp Set Off To Party - Old Design (10003-Z) and then used some pink Copic markers and colored in the cake and topped it off with some Nuvo Clear Glitter Gloss.  I then placed the circle into the space on the banner flat to the card for some added interest with different dimensions between the banner and the circle.  I finished my card off with some pink embellishments.
See you soon!
