Happy Birthday #2

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:

Happy Birthday

For today's post I wanted to share another card using the truly versatile stamp with you. I am always needing gender neutral birthday cards and this stamp is really my go to for a big bold CAS design.  It can be stamped on pretty much any paper, Patterned, Vellum or plain and the results are always perfect.

Card Recipe:
I stamped the Happy Birthday on a piece of vellum then used a real pretty Blue embossing powder and heat set, then I die cut the layer. I then die cut a piece of watercolor that I had previously used as the flick sheet from making some swatches of new shimmer watercolors, my goal when making this was to use the watercolor that was left on my brush and create a confetti look to the paper.

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I used Tombow Extreme to affix the stamped and embossed Happy Birthday to the top of the watercolor paper.  The final assembly was to attach it to a piece of light grey cardstock and then to the top of a side folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock cut to A2 size, a few rhinestones to the corners of the vellum layer and this card was ready for me to mail off to the recipient.

Fish and Gears

Fish and Gears!!

Good Morning crafty friends.
Amy here and
today Im going to share a
Masculine card using Victorine Originals Bass stamp with you all.

I know alot of people have problems creating masculine cards, so I wanted to create something to hopefully inspire those.
I started out with a paper from Prima.
It was tan with splotches of white.
This gave me my base to go from.
I added the dots using oxide inks and a stencil.
I distressed the edges with black oxide ink.
And brushed a little throughout.
Taking a torn peice of cardboard I distressed it as well.
Attached it to my base and added my black peice which is a cut up onion bag, but looks like a net.
I then stamped my fish image.
Fuzzy cut it out and colored it in gel pens to highlight it.
I also added a few metal gears and a crab.
If you liked my card come by my blog and see all my creations.

Ride On

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!
Heather here and it is my day to take over the blog at SumMore Fun and I went for a fun, summer time vibe with my card.  So let's check it out.

I started with a white piece of card stock cut to 4" x 5 1/4" and stamped the "Bug" stamp with some Archival Red Geranium Ink. I am using the Raisin Boat Off to Party (10003-Z) stamp set and corresponding sentiments.  I then colored in the bumper area and tires with a black fine tip pen.

Using Copic Markers in N0, N1 and N5 I colored in some pavement adding some dot details to where the tires would have driven.  I found some black glitter washi tape and some black and white grid washi in my stash of crafty supplies and added that to the bottom of the card.  I then used the "Ride On" sentiment in the set to stamp on the license plate in black ink and the little flower stamp onto the back window in gold ink. I added the panel to a piece of black card stock cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and then added that to a side folding white A2 sized card base.  To finish my card I added some black enamel dots in small and medium and then used my Silver Moondust Nuvo Crystal Drops on the tail lights and a coating of Grey Mist Translucent Nuvo Jewel Drops over the back window. I set it all aside to dry for 24 hours and that finished off this card.  See you all soon! Thanks for stopping by.
