O Holy Night Church Card

Good morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you.  Today I am sharing this elegant O Holy Night Church card that uses Raisin Boat's O Holy Night stamp set.
I stamped the church with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I watercolored the image and then cut around it with my electronic cutting machine.
The background was created with several colors of Distress Oxide inks (Fossilized Amber, Faded Denim, Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, and Black Soot) on watercolor paper.  I added a piece of white torn paper at the bottom to resemble snow and die cut it.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder onto the background.  The church was popped up with foam tape and lastly, I added Stickles on the snow areas as well as on the background.
For more details on this card, head on over to MY BLOG.

Here is a look at the O Holy Night stamp set:

Grazing in the snow

Hello Sharon here from Mollie Moo's Crafty Place taking over the blog today for the first time so please be kind.

I'm sharing a snowy tunnel card using Victorine Original's Elk Silhouette in the snow stamp


I stamped elk image twice using blue ink and added crystal glitter using a quickie glue pen to one make the snow sparkle. I then adhered this onto a card base. Using a set of scalloped circle dies I cut apertures from 2 snowy papers. I used blue card to make 4 concertina stripes, adhered 2 of these to opposite sides of my card base and added the kraft colored snowy layer. I then fussy cut (yes antlers and all!) the 2nd Elk out and turned him over, colored him black and added him to the kraft layer to give the original one a mate!




The blue snowy layer was placed over this using the remaining concertina strips to give dimension. I then decorated the outer layer with die cut snowflakes and the word Noel. 

You can find the products I have highlighted on the Sum More Fun online store along with a huge stamp selection.

Sparkle & Shine

Howdy! Today is my birthday! You'd think because of that I would be showcasing something birthday... but I've never been accused of being normal, and I'm good with that! I hope that you have a wonderful day today!

I'm writing this in advance of my birthday, but at this time, I'm still optimistic that I'll be able to spend some time crafting on my birthday! Not going to lie (even if my husband sees this)  - I definitely took advantage of some awesome Black Friday sales to increase my crafting stash - stay tuned for new creations inspired by my fellow talented Design Team members! There's still time to get in on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday awesomeness over at SumMore Fun - 33% off EVERYTHING through Monday at midnight!

I love using glitter with snow layouts and cards. I just think it makes it "sparkle & shine" so much more! For this card, I used the super cute and super fun Raisin Boat Holiday Wishes stamp. Aren't those sentiments awesome?!?



Not going to lie, it seems kind of a waste that I only used this cute sentiment from this amazing stamp set, but I have plans for the rest of it! Sometimes, less is more; and I was afraid to overtake the simple beauty of this card if I used a bigger sentiment.



I started by dry embossing the white background of my card with this cute snowflake embossing folder. I dug through my stash and found these perfect metal snowflakes and coordinating brads.



I really like the divided look, where the embossing stops at the bottom of the card. The pink shimmer trim makes a perfect dividing element.

I used some blue cardstock as my background to tie the winter look together. I added my sentiment with pink ink and a little sparkle in the middle to finish off this card.

On those winter wonderland days when the horizon is covered with fresh-fallen snow, it sparkles out here in the midwest. This card makes me picture that natural beauty!

Thanks for checking out my latest card! Want more of the snow-covered thoughts? Check out our brand new Let it Snow mood board - it's a beauty! Join in on our challenges for a chance to win $20-$40 to the SumMore fun store!


Happy crafting!

SumMore Fun Christmas Wishes...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from THERESA'S CRAFTY CREATIONS
and it's my turn to take over the blog!! YAY for me... 🙌

I thought I would show you a Whimsical
Christmas card that I made --





Super Simple CAS Style card! I'm using the
(POLKA DOTTED CHRISTMAS TREE) and the 
(CHRISTMAS BORDERS SET - 10508-X) -- (Candy Cane Design)
I actually heat embossed them both, one in Red &
the other in Green --
I used an assortment of Glitter Nuvo drops & some clear
adhesive gems to decorate my sweet tree!
The Nuvo drops really add Dimension!





I was trying to get a picture to show you the shine from 
the embossing I did - 

I used a Scallop Border die to add a little whimsy to my card front!
And then topped it off with a lovely
sentiment stamp called (CHRISTMAS WISHES - 74777-B)
I popped my card front to some fun foam, then attached it
to my Hunter Green Card base --




I'm also sharing the inside of my card - I try to
incorporate something from the front of my card
to the inside, just so it's all tied together!

Nothing Fancy of course... But I used the
my trimming & the
Stamp set for my inside sentiment - I really like this
sentiment - It has some Elegance with a really pretty saying...

Card Recipe:
Stamped the images on watercolor paper with Silver Pigment ink and again with versamark. Clear embossing powder was then applied and each panel heat set. Images were watercolored using Zig Clean Colors and the backgrounds on each panel were done using Gansai Tambi Pearl watercolors. Various Nuvo drops were used for the ornaments. To create the shaker My Favorite Things Peek A Boo window die was used on each panel to assure correct fit, then again on each blue patterned paper panel. MFT shaker pouches were used to create the shaker portion and I used various sequins and seed beads from my stash for the filling. Neenah 110lb card stock was cut to A2 size for all cards. All layers attached to front and the sentiment if from my stash embossed with ranger blue tinsel embossing powder

Thinking of You





Happy Saturday everyone,
Heather here taking over the blog today with this adorable little kitty stamp from the Raisin Boat set called Wild About Ewe, Honey.

I needed a thinking of you/get well type message and felt this little guy would brighten anyone's day.  So lets get started with how this came together.
I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the kitty in a dark brown hybrid ink then water colored him, we have an orange tabby that I used as my inspiration.  

I then did a distress oxide wash behind him and cut him out with a square rectangle stitched die from my stash.  I went with an A2 sized, top fold dark grey card base and then found some super cute and fun paw print paper in grey colors in my craft room that was perfect.  I cut that down to 4" x 5 1/4" and put it onto the card base where I then laid down the dark grey band and popped up the kitty with some fun foam and put him on top. I wanted to add a sentiment as I am sending this to someone who is very special to our family and needs a pick me up and I immediately grabbed my Victorine Originals Elegant Sayings and used the beautiful Thinking of You.  It was a cute, easy and quick card to make and I am sure it will be loved when it is received.  

Have a great day, supplies are pictured below and don't forget to enter into our current challenge. Click on the pictures to link directly to the Mood Board or products used on my card.

Happy Holidays


Hi and welcome back. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper taking over the blog today and sharing a few Happy Holiday cards featuring the Raisin Boat - Treemendous Stamp Set. I love stamp sets that give you loads of creative options and this one does not disappoint. 


Both cards are super simple, stamping with your favorite color inks and layering on patterned paper, easy peasy. You can use whatever color ink best matches your background paper. My favorite inks right now are Memento Inks, I've been using Memento for years and they never fail me.
