LIFE is better...

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... 🙌


Today I thought I would share a sweet card -





Isn't it Sweet? I thought so any way... LOL

I took a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2  Koh-I-Noor White Bristol Smooth 
Watercolor paper and placed a Floral stencil over it
I taped mine down with some post it tape
and then grabbed my Distress Oxides in - 
Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry,
Seedless Preserves, & Mermaid Lagoon

I used my round blending tool and just blended the colors
onto my stencil - Once I was happy with
my coverage, I pulled the stencil off
to reveal this awesome design - 

Because I used Distress Oxides I used my Heat tool
to dry my paper - and then cut my design down to
3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and used a rounded corner punch to
round out those edges -

Then I grabbed a piece of Doodlebug paper
in green with the tiny white dots and cut that down 
to make a 1/4" strip

I then had to decide on an image - So I pulled out
that Sweet STUFFED BUNNY STAMP from VIctorine Originals


and I grabbed another piece of water color paper
and stamped my image with some Onyx Black
versafine ink, then poured some Ultra Fine
Black Embossing powder over that and heat set it -
Once that was complete, I cut my image out with my
Scan N Cut Machine then colored him up
with some shades of Green & Yellow Arteza watercolor pens
Of course I like a little sparkle on Everything! So I colored
my bunny with my Clear Wink of Stella Pen as well -

Once that was complete I started to put my card together on
a White top folding card base - I always like to add a 
sentiment so I grabbed the 




The different Sentiments in this set are just AMAZING!
It's one of my FAVORITE SETS!!!

So I stamped my Sentiment on a piece of Vellum
with some Versafine onyx black ink and poured some
ultra fine black embossing powder over the top of it
then heat set it as well - Then I grabbed a stitched banner
die and die cut the sentiment out --

I wanted it to look like the bunny was sitting above the sentment
so I adhered the vellum down, attaching the adhesive just behind the 
bunnies feet so you can't see the adhesive, 
then popped my bunny up with some dimension - 
I then grabbed a couple of clear jewels and 
attached them to my card - and that's about it!

Bunny with Egg ~ Easter Card

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

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

Here's my inspiration for you using:

Bunny with Egg Mini Animals and Flowers & Backgrounds Set

Today I am sharing a cute Easter card that was super easy to make once I cut the mask for the bunny.  I am not much for fussy cutting but am finding I am doing quite a bit of masking on my cards lately.



Card Recipe:
I stamped the Bunny with Egg using my Tim Holtz stamp platform on a piece of Copic friendly cardstock and again on a piece of masking paper.  I then cut out the mask and applied it just to the lower half of the bunny.  Taking the one stamp from the Backgrounds set that looks like a small patch of grass I positioned it in my platform and stamped across the bottom of the card.  I did this a few times moving the panel and using different colors of green inks to achieve the look of grass.  I colored the bunny using various Copic markers until I was happy with how he looked.  Taking the Tulip stamp from Mini Animals and Flowers set I placed it on stamping platform and first inked the stem and leaves with a green ink and stamped the Egg and then inked it with a bright pink on the flower and finished off the Tulip.  The Happy Easter sentiment is from my stash and I used the same ink on it as I did the Tulip in the egg.  I chose to die cut the panel with a dainty scalloped edged die and used a larger die from the same set to die cut a layer of soft plaid paper from my stash.
I then affixed all the layers to a piece of yellow cardstock. Once all layers were dry I attached the project to a top folding A2 sized card base made with Neenah 110lb cardstock.  To finish off my project I added some homemade enamel dots that I affixed with pink stickles.  I chose the pink stickles so that just a hint of sparkle is visible on the card.

Wild About Spring (and Ewe)!




Hello everyone,

Design Team Member Heather here and it is my day to take over the blog at SumMore Fun and I pulled out one of my all time favorite stamp sets from Raisin Boat that is not just for Valentine's Day.  My card today is just so pretty in real life but very hard to photograph with even the best camera due to FOIL.... yes, foil!  I believe this card would work for spring, Easter, congratulations, thinking of you or even a new baby, but please let me know what you think in the comments.  So lets get started....


I started by taking  Neenah Solar White card stock cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and liberally applying some reactive spray all over, I used a shoe box to keep the mess down to a minimum as this spray goes everywhere.  I sprayed, drew lines and splattered the reactor liquid onto the card stock and then set it aside to set.  When it was tacky I ran the card stock each through my laminator with Mint colored foil.  I then took the Wild About Ewe, Honey stamp set and used the adorable Ewe stamp and stamped onto Neenah white card stock with MFT Black hybrid ink.  I used 2 shades of Copic markers in Neutral grays to color the body and 2 shades of skin tones to do the face.  When I was done coloring, I fussy cut the image out leaving a small white border.  This stamp is fairly easy to fussy cut and took hardly any time. I then took a small stitched circle from my stash and die cut that with white card stock and set that aside.  I then cut down a card base to 4" x 8" and then scored one side at 4" to make a top fold note card.  I cut out the Mint Foiled piece to 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" and glued that onto the base.  I popped up the circle with some fun foam and placed that down towards the bottom right corner.  I then glued my "Ewe" onto the circle. I finished the card off by adding some mirrored confetti/sequins with glossy accents and dotting the Ewe's eyes with my black glaze roll pen.  I took a few photos in different lighting and from different angles to try to show off the foil and that cute Ewe. It was a pretty quick card and if you planned ahead and made a few foil backgrounds you could make a few at a time pretty easily.

Going Up, Up and Away!


Happy Friday, everyone and welcome! Today I'm taking over the blog with this cutie from the Raisin Boat Spring Is In the Air Stamp Set. This is a great set for Spring and Easter, lots of possibilities with this one. 



This card was created using white cardstock, colored inks, COPIC markers and a few die-cuts from my stash. You can find all the details on my blog, The Relativity of Paper.

I stamped the grass using Memento Inks in the colors Pear Tart, Cottage Ivy, and Bamboo Leaves. 
I colored the balloon, bunny, and basket with COPIC BG's, Y's, RV's.  Once you have the pieces die-cut I added 3D mounting foam to them and adhered them to a 4.25" x 5.5" #110 Neenah Cardstock Classic Crest Solar White card base. Finish off with enamel dots. 

Stamp sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.


As always, thanks for joining me today.

First Communion Invitations and Layout

Good Morning! Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog. The cards and layout I am sharing with you uses Raisin Boat's First Communion stamp set.  It is an absolute MUST HAVE for anyone who is celebrating that occasion.  My son will be doing so in a couple weeks.
I created all the invitations using gray and white cardstock.  I designed the top white panel shape in my SCAL 4 software to fit the gorgeous border stamp in the First Communion stamp set.  I stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder on the outline.  The sentiment was also stamped in the same way.  For the chalice, I used the same ink, but embossed with white pearl embossing powder for a silver look.
I used the dotted border stamp with gray ink to add a little more visual interest to the paper underneath the sentiment banner.  All the white cardstock was popped up with foam tape.  I used Totally White Trendy Twine to embellish and also added a dot of Ice White Viva Pearl Pen above the chalice to look like the Holy Eucharist.  Here is a look at all the invitations I created!
I kept one of the cards not assembled so that I could make this layout page for my son's scrapbook.  I asked him how he wanted it to be, and this is the design and papers he chose!  All the elements are the same as the cards with the addition of patterned paper from DCWV's Silver Leaf stack, a white and silver doily, and a larger chalice stamp that is also from the First Communion stamp set.  That stamp and it's shadow were cut out with my Brother Scan N Cut.
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!

Up and Away

Good morning Sharon here from Mollie Moo's Crafty Place taking over the blog on this spring day.

Today I am using a Raisin Boat set of stamps called Spring Is In The Air:


The cute Hot air balloon was colored to match this month's challenge mood board colors and both that and the adorable tiny bunny fussy cut. I used some cloudy sky patterned papers and die cut a penny slider 'flight path'. The same paper was placed underneath and I made a penny slider with the hot air balloon. You can see it in action here:



I stamped one of the many sentiments from the Spring is in the Air stamp set in the bottom corner and added another bunny face.
Once the mechanism was working I matted this onto blue card and my white card base. I added a few enamel dots to balance the design.

this is just another way that you can use our mood board for the challenge and be in with a chance of winning a gift certificate to our store:

Bunny tails

Hello to all! Aren't bunny tails the cutest little things? They were definitely the highlight to this layout as this stamp set by Raisin Boat is the absolute cutest!

For this layout, I had pictures of my daughters and my niece from Easter last year, and I wanted to do something special. Thank goodness SumMore Fun had the most awesome stamp sets and the best idea to make these cute little bunny tails!


I started in the top right corner by sponging a sunburst stencil with Distress Oxide Inks. 



Then, I added grass and flowers along the bottom of the page. Using the Raisin Boat Sweet Smile stamp made this so easy! I added some extra color to my flowers by using the amazing Kirarina Wink Glitter Markers. I also colored some of the blades of grass with the green marker as well. To make the grass pop even more, then I added green Liquid Applique. If you've never used this before, you're missing out! More detail about it coming up on the bunny tails.



For the second page, I found the cutest SVG for my title. I cut it out in coordinating cardstock, and then added some doodles with the matching Kirarina Markers.


For the coolest aspect of the layout, I went back to the liquid applique. I'm sure there are many uses for this awesome product, but where I used it most is to add fun dimensional elements to my cards and layouts. Think snow on a tree ... or BUNNY TAILS! 

I started by stamping my bunnies in a line across the layout using the Raisin Boat Stamp Spring is in the Air. I added the first bit of color by putting polka dots with the Kirarina Wink Glitter Markers

Then, I moved on to the tails! I actually had liquid applique in all of these colors. They are years old, clear back from when there was a local scrapbook store - amazingly, they were still good! If you can't find it in all the colors, you have options. Get the white from SumMore Fun, and add ink or re-inker to color it. Or, I've even heard of people having success by using it white, and then stamp the ink on top of it. Full disclosure: the directions say apply your liquid applique, then let it dry, then heat set it. I'm too impatient for that. I applied all my bunny tails, and then took my heat gun to it right away. As it warms it, it makes the liquid applique puff up and bubble like this did - perfect for bunny tails! I think it's supposed to be even more puffy if you let it dry, first; but honestly, I've never tried that! 

I drew some grass blades with my Kirarina green marker, and then added some more grass with the liquid applique.



I matted all my pictures in coordinating cardstock to finish off my cute layout!
