Turning a Sunflower into a Gerbera Daisy

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!!

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

Here's my inspiration for you using: Large Sunflower

Now I know the stamp is a sunflower but I really wanted to stretch the stamps use and decided to try using it as big bold bright gerbera daisy, you know the kind you see at the florist shops in an array of colors.


Card Recipe:
 Using a piece of Strathmore Bristol Velum that I die cut I stamped the image with versamark and used clear embossing powder and heat set the image. The flower was then watercolored using Gansai Tambi watercolors.  The watercolor layer was then glued to a die cut piece of black wood grain paper that I used a Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle die.  The whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size.

Celebrate


Hi, and welcome back. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper taking over the blog today with an All Occasion card featuring Victorine Originals Clock Minutes and Woman In Dress Stamps.


I love creating my own backgrounds using the current mood board colors.



To create this look I used a stamp position tool, stamping theClock Minutes randomly with Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry, Antique Linen, and VersaMark Ink with Gold embossing powder, heat set om #110 cardstock. Using stamp position tool, stamp Woman In Dress image using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I used the Brother Scan N Cut to cut her out but you could easily fussy cut the image. Add 3D mounting foam to the back of Woman In Dress and adhere to stamped clocks. Mat with the same #110 cardstock, adhere to 4.25" x 5.5" card base. Die-cut banner and stamp Celebrate using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Finish off with sequins and pearls.

Tractor Birthday Cards

Good morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today. The cards I am sharing with you use stamps from Raisin Boat's Homegrown and Happy Camper stamp sets.
The tractor and barn stamps are from the RB Homegrown stamp set.  That set is absolutely amazing!  I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  They were both stamped in brown ink.  The tractor was colored with colored pencils. 
The Happy Birthday sentiment was from the RB Happy Camper stamp set.  I used black ink for that so it would pop off the patterned paper a little more. 
I had to make a red tractor as well since I have some family members who are into those.  Embellishments for these cards include burlap paper, ribbons, Berry and Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twines, as well as brads.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Kick up your heels

Good morning, Sharon here from Mollie Moos Crafty Place taking over the blog for the day.
 Well was Santa good to all of you? I hope you had a blessed day and enjoyed time spent with loved ones.

My card today gives you a little insight into my personality:


Despite growing up in a city I am a country girl at heart, give me boots and jeans and I'm happy.

The stamps I have used today are from 2 Raisin Boat sets first one is Urban Cowgirl I have used the lasso, horseshoe and Urban Cowgirl sentiment from this set. Both stamped in a dark brown ink. I then Stamped the rest of my wording using the Goes with Mountain Country Gal set along with the boots which I colored with Copic Markers.
I used a white card base, matted with black card, I inked the edges of my topper with distress ink to tie in with the colors of my stamped images.


A few enamel dots completed my design.

So kicking up your heels fits in with the theme of the current moodboard challenge - who likes to party on New Year's Eve? 

This shows that your card for our challenge doesn't need to be all sparkly just use the colors included in the mood board! There is still plenty of time to get your entries in

No Peeking!!

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!
YAY for me... 🙌


I thought I would show you another FUN Whimsical
Christmas card!





EEK!!! This card was super easy to make & I LOOOOVE
this FUN Raisin Boat Stamp set --

It's called ELVES are WATCHING (9257-Z)




Isn't it a Super CUTE Set???
It's one of my FAVORITES!!!

I think I like it because of the FUN Sentiments
that this set has - the Elves are super sweet too!!





So, I stamped my adorable elf on a piece of Tim Holtz White
Watercolor paper, using Onyx Black Versafine ink -
Then colored him up with my Zig Real brush pens -
Found a Stitched frame die and some FUN Doodlebug Paper
and cut out a window -- Attached the 2 pieces together --

Then I cut another piece of Doodlebug paper (brick wall)
4 x 5 1/4 & placed it on my 110 lb. white Card base
Then I die cut 2 Stitched circles out of more cute Doodlebug papers
and placed them behind my Elf Window - 
Then added the "Happy Holidays" Sentiment which was
also from the same Doodlebug Stack (Milk & Cookies)
I cut the ends for a banner style look --





Of course, you know I'm gonna show you the inside of my card too!!!
I die cut a couple of Snowflakes and used a strip of the Doodlebug
paper for the inside along with this Fabulous Victorine Originals stamp
called ALTHOUGH IT'S BEEN SAID (74631-E)

Let's get Flake-y

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday,

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog. As you can see I am still making Christmas Cards, hey no one ever said I was on the ball and getting things out on time.  Yes I am one of those Christmas Eve last minute shoppers you see pictured on the evening news. With that said here is my inspiration today for you using:
Let it Snow and Holiday Wishes

Non Blizzard

Blizzard Effect

Card Recipe:
 I started off by using 3 colors of distress ink Dusty Concord, Blueprint Sketch, and Salty Ocean and doing some heavy blending I achieved the blend I was hoping for.  I then stamped the snowflakes with versamark and used white embossing powder and heat set the flakes. The sentiment was then stamped on vellum and white embossing powder used, the silver stars are from my stash (leftover from a previous project) and glued to the vellum layer. The velum was attached to the distressed and embossed layer by applying glue directly behind the stars.  This hides/keeps the glue from showing thru the velum.  The whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size.

For the second card "BLIZZARD EFFECT" the recipe is the exact same except I wanted to achieve a look to the card as if it had been dusted with snow.  To achieve this look instead of using my embossing buddy before applying the versamark to the snowflakes, I took my fingertips and sort of grasped/smooshed them around the edges so that the oil from my fingers would grasp to the card and pick up embossing powder.

Thank you for visiting today and have a great day!

Happy Holidays

Happy Saturday! Sharon from Mollie Moos Crafty Place taking over the blog today and I'm getting so excited that the holidays are almost here.

Have you got all your cards done and sent? If not I'm show casing a very simple one that is great if you have multiples to do and it just uses one stamp set.


I used the pine bough from Raisin Boat's Holiday Hang Ups set and stamped it around 3 sides of white card using different shades of green ink. I then switched to red ink and stamped berries and my sweet little sentiment. An amber ink was used to stamp the stars.


 I used a fine point pen to 'hang' these on the tree and added the small tied bow to the biggest one - again a stamp from the same set. This stamp set also has a number of Christmas ornaments with it so is packed full of possibilities.
Once stamped I then matted a white base with a silvery blue mirror card, red card and finally my stamped card. 

for the theme I used the current challenge mood board choosing the colors and the pine boughs

There is still almost a week to get your entries in and with the all decked out theme we all have a card made that could be entered.

Happy Holidays + Holiday Hang Ups


Hi and welcome back. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper taking over the blog today with a Christmas  card featuring the Raisin Boat  Holiday Hang Ups Stamp Set. I love retro ornaments, so I had to have this set, so beautiful!  I used the Distress Inks to coordinate with the current Mood Board. 

I'm going to share a little secret with ya. You have to try this cardstock, it's amazing.
It comes in 15 different colors, #100, sturdy cardstock, loving it.



To create this look I used a stamp position tool, stamping the ornaments in Peacock Feathers, Candied Apple Red, Fossilized Amber and the branch with Peeled Paint. Using Gold ink stamp sparkles randomly. Added fun foam to the white cardstock panel and layered on Raisin Boat My Colors Cardstock - Roasted Red Pepper. Finished off with a few glitter enamel dots on stamped sparkles.

Holiday Hang Ups (9005-Z)
