Take Me Out to the Ballgame


Hello... Jeanette here, from the design team. I'm glad you've stopped by the blog today!


Did you see? Have you heard? There are some changes happening with SumMore Fun Challenges.  For instance, the current one is a Sketch challenge... you can find the details HERE

How fun! You can use it upright, or you can turn it on its side. Just use the sketch however it fits your creativity.

I guess you can see that I turned the sketch for my card.


I had some Dirt DP and some Baseball DP so of course I had to use one of my favorite Victorine Originals stamp sets for my card - the Baseball set that you can find HERE. Seriously, I really REALLY like this stamp set!!!



Just look at the detail on that baseball glove stamp:


And the ball in the baseball glove is a brad. It fits perfectly!


The music score (of Take Me Out to the Ballgame) 
is also part of the stamp set.



You still have time to participate in the Sketch Challenge. I'll be watching to see what you make.

Sabrina's creative blog is this blog (when she's not busy doing owner stuff), so here are additional cards she created for this new release.


Veteran card photo-takers will relate to the agony of photographing shiny or holographic cards. The right angle which shows off the bling in one place make another part of the card look dull. Here's the best photo I could take!

The paper is all from my stash. I love shopping there. (I made this card before I created the digital papers. I would have used the blue snowflakes page with this card if I were to make this again now.)
The ornament was stamped with Black Soot Distress Oxide then embossed with a blue/green/gold glitter embossing powder. Then the string was also stamped with Black Soot Distress Oxide and embossed with gold glitter. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to stamp snowflakes randomly. The sentiment was stamped with Blue Jean Distress Oxide.I used the Gold Kirarina Wink marker to shadow the letters and add the gold line under the sentiment.
As a finishing touch, I used a silver gel pen to color the outer dots on the snowflakes and added a drop of Holographic Pearl Pen to the middle.

New Release Sneak Peek Day 4 You Can

The new release is Tomorrow, Thursday, October 11th!

We have four new sets we can't wait to introduce you to. It's only a day away.

In the mean time, today's set is one very near and dear to SumMore Fun's heart. In April of 2018, Sabrina's mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma. Six months of driving to treatments and check ups affected us deeply.

We have a page on our website explaining the story behind You Can.

Sabrina created a card for You Can! It all started with the idea of cutting out part of the word and layering it. After a lot of playing around, this is one of the end results. You Can was stamped in Black Soot Distress Oxide on white and yellow card stock. Using the Star Stitch die, she cut out part of the You Can then positioned it over the white paper so the letters lined up. Then the hard part. Picking the paper! She finally settled on some bird feather paper from her stash. The best part is this card can be masculine or feminine and covers many different situations.



Design Team Leader, Sharon Smith created a card for You Can in the breast cancer colors. Fitting as it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  Get all the details on her blog, Mollie Moo's Crafty Place.

Design team member Beth Fiscus created a stunning card using a paper pack dedicated to breast cancer. Get all the details on her blog, Beth's Beauties!

https://nursiebethsbeauties.blogspot.com/2018/10/summore-fun-sneak-peek-day-4-you-can.html

Guest design team member Jamie Wright was busy this week creating five cards for this new stamp set. She went all directions creating a card about cancer and cards that could be used for a variety of occasions. See all the details and the additional cards on her Facebook page Doin' it the Wright Way.



We have three blogs for you to visit and check out the pretties! 

What fun would this be without prizes?
 None, that's what -and we can't have that!

If you watched our unboxing video, you saw that we ordered a bunch of 6x6 paper packs to play with. We're looking for designs to start monthly kits, but we can't order just one paper pack at a time. We have at least 2 of every design! Want to get one mailed to you for free? 







All you have to do to enter is comment here and on each of our design team member's posts. We'll give away a pack each day of the sneak peeks so come back every day this week! Winners of all prizes will be announced on Monday, October 15th, so you have plenty of time to enter.

If you're international and win, we still want it to be fun! You'll have the option of paying for shipping or receiving the digital prize instead.

New Release Sneak Peek Day 2: Tangled Tinsel

The new release is Thursday, October 11th!

We have four new sets we can't wait to introduce you to. It's only three days away.

In the mean time, check out these ideas for Tangled Tinsel!

One of the owners, Sabrina, made a card for this set as well.She did this one as a simple design that still turned out elegant. She used a die to cut out the three layered pieces from white card stock. She then painted the middle size with Lavish Lovebirds Unicorn Spit. Using Black Soot Distress Oxide, she stamped the sentiment in the middle of the smallest piece. She adhered the card with Tombow Permanent Monoadhesive and used that to tack on the holly as well. Three drops from the red Pearl Pen and this card was done!


Jamie, one of our regular guest designers, created this card. Get all the details on her Facebook page, Doin' it the Wright Way!

New Release Sneak Peek Day 1 Crocus Craving


The new release is Thursday, October 11th!

We have four new sets we can't wait to introduce you to. It's only four days away.

In the mean time, check out these ideas for the first set, Crocus Craving! The images for Crocus Craving were drawn by Nebraska artist Sundri McGreggor.

The first sneak peek card was made by one of the SumMore Fun owners, Sabrina Sumsion.

The background was created after doing an project with Unicorn Spit. With the plastic pull method of creating, many times, there is spit that drips over the side of the mixed media project (like with acrylic pours). After doing a project, Sabrina swiped some white card stock through the puddles and let them dry. A purple crocus project was the perfect time to pull out this paper from her stash.

She matted the flower with a matching purple card stock. The coloring was done with colored pencils. She used the sentiments from Crocus Craving to add the message. She finished it off with drops of pastel yellow Pearl Pen in the corners.



The next card was made by our design team member Amy. She has all the details for this card on her blog A Tiger's Haven.


Jessica is no longer on the design team, but she's doing guest designs for us when she has time. She made a fabulous tag for this new release!Check out all the steps on her blog Polka Dot Orchard!



Our final card was created by a guest designer who is new to us. Introducing Courtney! Didn't she do a fabulous job? She has a fabulous site packed full of brilliant card ideas. You can find all the details about how she made this card on her blog, Courtney's Paper Crafting.
