Rustic Sunflower Card

Hello all!  Happy Wednesday! Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with this pretty fall themed card.  I don't know about where you live, but we have been freezing (literally!) in Nebraska. Hopefully you are able to enjoy the fall weather and temps longer than us.  The stamps I used are the Victorine Originals Large Sunflower stamp and the Raisin Boat No Loss For Words stamp set.The red rubber Large Sunflower stamp will be retired from the SumMoreFun website soon, so grab it while you can!  It is definitely a favorite stamp of many.  To recreate the card I made, you can use a toner ink pad to stamp your sunflower, then foil, stamp with regular black ink, scan it into your computer, then print it out with a laser printer and foil, or even stamp with embossable ink and heat emboss with gold powder.  The end results will all be quite similar.  My foiling didn't turn out perfect as the foil wrinkled in a couple of places, allowing the black toner to show through, but it is a rustic card, so I thought it worked well!  Next up, I watercolored the image with Distress Oxide inks in the following colors: Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Fossilized Amber, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, and Lucky Clover.  I wiped off the excess ink from the foiling with a paper towel.
I ink blended around the edges of the image with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.  Once it was dry, I sealed the ink with Mod Podge acrylic sealer to prevent ink transfer.  I matted the image with brown cardstock then wrapped Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine around it and added a small tag with a sentiment from the No Loss For Words stamp set.  After adding a bottom layer of distressed patterned papers, The card was complete!  In the photo below you can see the shine of the foiling.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Halloween Ahead

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today! It's almost Halloween, can you believe it? So of course I had to pull out one of my Halloween stamp sets and make a quick card to share with you today. 

Howl-ween Hounds


There are so many cute stamps in this set that I had a difficult time choosing which ones to use.


In the end it was the fun pup with the jack-o-lantern on his head that caught my eye.


Thanks again for stopping by the blog.
I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

Wood Planks Card

Hello friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here.  Today I am sharing one last card that I created using the stamps from the Handy Man Pack.  Those sets are  RB Handy Man and RB Nailed It.

While this card may seem simple, I was very excited to make it!  I started by placing the wood plank stamp from the Handy Man stamp set into the center of my stamp platform and stamping it over and over on kraft cardstock with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.  I simply would move my paper to wherever I thought it would be neat to have the next plank!  Once the paper was trimmed to the planks, I distressed the joints with Scrapbook.com Leather ink using a narrow blending brush.  Once that was adhered to the card base, I stamped the sentiment from Nailed It in black.  On a scrap piece of paper, I stamped the circular saw image from Handy Man, cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut, and colored it with Artify markers before adhering it to the card with foam tape.  The final addition to the card were several tiny dots of silver Pearl Pen to mimic nail heads in the boards. 
 I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
