May All Your Wishes Come True Birthday Card

Hello everyone,
DT Heather here and it is my day to take over the blog and I am always in need of birthday cards, but this would have also made a super cute wedding shower card.  I started with an A2 card base in Kraft and then cut a large banner out of some cute Kraft paper with pink polka dots from my crafty stash, I then cut out a circle in the middle of the banner .  I stamped a sentiment from the Raisin Boat Stamp Set Flourishing Thoughts (10271-Z) at the bottom of the banner.  I added some twine with a small bow at the top and then popped the banner up with some foam tape on the card base.  I then cut a circle out of Ivory card stock and stamped the super cute cake stamp from the Raisin Boat Stamp Set Off To Party - Old Design (10003-Z) and then used some pink Copic markers and colored in the cake and topped it off with some Nuvo Clear Glitter Gloss.  I then placed the circle into the space on the banner flat to the card for some added interest with different dimensions between the banner and the circle.  I finished my card off with some pink embellishments.
See you soon!

Down By the Sea

Hi and welcome, everyone! Today we are featuring Jessica from the Polka Dot Orchard Blog, our July Guest Designer here on the blog. She's has created another fun card with scene building and watercolors. 

Hey there crafty friends! I'm back with another card I made for SumMore Fun, but this time this is my featured post. This is still pretty exciting; being a guest designer that is.
So, SumMore Fun carries a stamp line called Victorine Originals which has some pretty amazing stamps that you can build your own scenery with. I stamped each stamp in different Memento ink colors onto Canson XL Watercolor paper using my MISTI stamping tool. I then painted my stamped panel with Peerless watercolors. I really like how stamping in the different colors created a no-line affect after I was done painting. The ink colors and stamps I used will be listed below.
Victorine Originals Stamps ~ Memento Ink Colors

After I was done painting I decided to stamp and paint the sand castle and dolphin again. Except this time I fussy cut them out and used foam tape to pop them up off the original image on my stamped panel. I really like the 3D look it created.
Before attaching this to my card base I stamped in the top corner "be you" In nautical blue Memento ink using a stamp from Risin Boat set called "Imagine", and then wrapped some blue and white twine on the left and right side of my painted panel. Risin Boat is another wonderful line of stamps that SumMore Fun carries.
After my painted panel was attached to my card base I felt it needed something more, which of course was a little bit of sequins. I decided to add blue sequins to the water which I felt was the perfect place to add it because the prettiest wasters are the ones that sparkle.
No card is complete until the inside is done and I love making the inside match the front. I decided to keep the inside of this one simple by only matting white cardstock to the inside. I found the perfect sentiment in my craft stash "MY HOME IS THE OPEN sea WHERE THE STARS SHINE brighter AND MY SOUL IS free", which I stamped out in nautical blue Memento ink. I then trimmed down the edges close to the stamped sentiment, finishing it off by inking the edges of the cardstock and the same blue ink. For my final touch to the inside I added some blue and white twine to the area where the message to the recipient would be written. Sometimes I like laying out the inside of my cards this way, putting the sentiment on the back side of the card front and then leaving the entire inside blank. A layout like this is perfect for when you want to write long messages.

Well, that's it for today and I hope I have inspired you in some way.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting!

You Know the DRILL Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Nailed It! stamp set.
The card was pretty straight forward to create.  I simply stamped the images from the Nailed It! stamp set in black ink onto gray cardstock using a stamp platform.  I wanted the drill sentiment on the card, so I hilighted around the drill image with white gel pen.
I added a gray toned wood paper at the bottom then wrapped the measuring tape washi around the center.  The screw images on the wood paper were stamped in black and then colored with silver marker.  I stamped a sentiment from the Nailed It! stamp set, matted it and popped it up with foam tape.  The only embellishment I used was Bumblebee Trendy Twine underneath the sentiment to make the card complete!

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!

A versatile shooting star

Hello! I was inspired by my fellow design team member's shooting star creation this week, so I thought I'd create my own cards with this Victorine Originals Celestial stamp set.

The first card I made for my niece's 2nd birthday that is this weekend. I used distress oxide inks for my background - smooshing, splattering and drying in layers. I added a spritz of pearl paint over the top, too, to give it more shimmer.

I wanted the shooting stars to be fun and whimsical, so I used different colors and different directions to put them all over my card. Then, I grabbed the wonderful Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set.

I put my sentiment on a separate piece of paper, and then added the shimmer spray over the top again - it kind of gave the sentiment a water-color effect, but I'm okay with that since it goes with the rest of the card. I matted it on a piece of coordinating cardstock and used pop dots to pop it off the card. To finish it off, I added clear sparkles all over.

Since I was having so much fun with both the distress oxide inks and the shooting star stamp, I decided to make a second card with a totally different theme.

I used the distress oxide inks for my background, and then topped it with the pearl paint shimmer spray.

I stamped the shooting star stamp multiple times along the side of my card, and then I added a Christmas sentiment. I love the font and everything about the Victorine Originals Celebrate the Season stamp.

To make the sentiment pop a bit more, I embossed it with an opalescent embossing powder, which gives it an awesome shine. I finished off my card with some coordinating colors of Nuvo drops.

Shooting Star Wishes...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa Here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!!

 I thought I would share a Shooting Star with ya-

With School starting back up in about 6 weeks
I thought I would get a Jumpstart on
some of the Birthday Cards I make for the Faculty - 

I'm using the Celestial (10603-X) Stamp set

I used my Distress oxide inks in Candied Apple, Carved
Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover, Blueprint
Sketch, & Wilted Violet

I just basically stamped the shooting star stamp
down the front of my white card front - Trying to give it
a Rainbow look

Then I took a Stitched Rectangle Die and die cut
around it for a more finished look

I wanted my background to stand out so I took a strip
of Vellum and wrapped it around the card front 

I looked thru my entire die cutting collection and
realized I didn't own a "Wishing" word Die (WHAT?)

So I went to my Cameo and Typed out the word using the
(CluffHMK Bold) Font  - Before I cut the word out I took
a piece of White Cardstock and Covered it with
the Wilted Violet Distress Ink 
This was so my word die would match my card &
go with my Rainbow theme design - 

I used my Heat tool to dry the ink completely before
putting it in my Die cutting machine - Then cut out the word
3x's so it would stand out on my card -

Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment (You the Best)
from the Flourishing Thoughts (10271-Z) Raisin Boat
Stamp set - I had to cover up the Cursive Wishing word
before I stamped the rest onto my vellum

I adhered the card front onto a piece of White Fun Foam
for added dimension and then attached it to a black
card base - I needed a little bling so I added a couple
of Clear Adhesive gems
And Now I've got another Birthday card to
scratch off my to-do list!! :)

Happy 4th of July

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy 4th of July!!

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

Here's my inspiration for you using the Rainsin Boat stamp set

Strokes of Pride

For today's post I wanted to share a card that reflects July 4th.  The Strokes of Pride stamp set makes this super easy to do.

Card Recipe:
I stamped the star stamp a few times on a piece of vellum using Memento Dew Drop ink in the colors Lady Bug and Nautical Blue then used Clear and White embossing powder and heat set. Fussy cutting is not my favorite craft task but this was actually super simple and easy to do, so much so that I made a few more for a future project.  The sentiment was stamped using Versafine embossing pad and then I carefully applied Red, White, and Blue embossing powder and heat set. 

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I used Tombow Extreme to affix the stars to the front of an A2 sized top folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock. A few drops of Nuvo were applied to finish off this card.

If you would like to purchase the SumMoreFun stamps used in this project or any of the supplies linked I have an exclusive 10% off discount code for you to use.  All you need to do is click this link and the discount should be automatically applied to the contents of your shopping cart.

Be You!!

Be You!!

Good Morning crafty friends.
I am up
today to share a
Card I made using Victorine Originals Double take Butterfly stamp and a stamp from Raisin boats Imagine set.

I started out by stamping the shaded Butterfly part first in one color and then stamped the outline over the top in a different color.
I use Distress Oxide inks to stamp and then used them to distress all around my paper.
By doing this I am able to play around with my backgrounds and distressing to create something unusual and fun.
I stamped the Be You sentiment amd used my Fiskars 1/4 in. Circle punch to punch it perfectly.
I also added another butterfly using my Fiskars butterfly punch and distressing it with the inks and outlining it using glitter gel pens.

Thats it for me today.
Hope on over to my blog to see my other creations using SumMoreFun stamps.
