Just a barn and a wedding...

Hi all! Jamie here, and at my scrapbooking retreat two weekends ago, I was able to make some more progress in my sister's wedding album. I'm so close to being done!!!



When my little sister told us she wanted to get married in our barn, we all kind of thought she was nuts - mostly because it was a BARN that was in use on the farm, so it was a little dirty! But, she had a vision, and what a beautiful vision it was! The day was perfect, the wedding was perfect and the bride was happy!

When I saw the Raisin Boat stamp set Homegrown, I just knew I need to make a layout with it for her wedding album. And then I saw the awesome card made by fellow design team member Heather and knew that's what I needed to do. Heather created a work of art, and thankfully, she helped me adapt it for a scrapbook page.



I started with distress oxide inks and sponge tools. I've never inked a whole page like this before, and it was definitely a learning experience. I tossed my first attempt... but with a bit of water and a bit of careful picture placement, I was able to make the scene of the barn on the left page. Lots of layers of ink was Heather's advice! 


Once my background was done, I stamped on some grass from the Raisin Boat Homegrown set. I was trying to replicate the amount of grass versus dirt in the pictures we had of the wedding. Then, I needed a barn. I stamped and embossed the Homegrown barn on a separate piece of paper, and then I watercolored it using a brush and the distress oxide inks.

I matted the top picture to set it apart a little bit.

The first page was hard enough, so no way was I repeating that for the second page. Did you remember the wedding was in a barn on a farm? So, what goes better with that than cowboy boots? We all had our boots on, so I dug around and found a couple boot stamps from Victorine Originals and Raisin Boat and got to work.



I embossed the boots from the Raisin Boat set Goes with Mountain Country Gal and the Victorine Originals Cowboy Boots boots with the distress oxides and clear embossing powder; and then I watercolored them to match the colors of the boots we actually wore.


And, apparently because I like fussy cutting so much, I stamped and embossed a lasso from the Raisin Boat stamp set Urban Cowgirl and put it on one of the pictures.



I'm pretty happy with how this layout turned it! It captures the scene of the pictures perfectly!

Hi Friend!


Hello everyone,
Heather here and it is my day to take over the blog and I decided I needed some more "just because" type cards for my stash to send to friends who may need a pick me up or just some happy mail.  These daisies are just so versatile and pretty, so let's jump right in and talk about the card:
I started by taking an A2 sized, side folding, white card base and stamping one of the large daisy images from the Raisin Boat Oops A Daisy (10236) set three times on the front edge, while the card was open.  I then fussy cut the edge with the intention of leaving it so there would be a fancy edge while the card was closed, that changed though as I worked on my design, which I will explain shortly.  I also waited to color the images until I finished cutting so if I made a mistake it would be easier to correct then if I made a mistake cutting after I colored them.  I then used 5 different shades of pinks from my Tombow markers and colored the flowers, then using a white gel pen I added some details to each flower to add more interest.  I then stamped the "Hi" and "Friend" sentiments from the same set in black ink.  Once the white ink had dried I added a coat of shimmer to each flower using a Nuvo Glitter Gloss pen.  I then decided that I wanted a bit more color so found some ombre paper in my stash that went perfect and added that to the inside front panel.

For the flower centers I added glossy accents and then sprinkled a dark bronze glitter over the top and waited for everything to dry before cleaning up the stray glitter.  I hope you have enjoyed my card and please join us tomorrow for a new challenge.  See you all soon!

Ahoy!

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

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

Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamps:

Ship at Sea Ahoy Lined Background

I am always trying to add to my card stash "Masculine" themed cards that I can pull and pretty much use for any occasion.  Today's card can be used for the following types of occasions.  Retirement, Birthday, Fathers day, Get Well, just to name a few.





Card Recipe:
I stamped the Lined Background using an acrylic block in a random pattern on a piece of Neenah 110lb cardstock using Versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Next I used Memento Dew Drops in Nautical Blue with a blending pad to give an ombre effect. Once I was happy with the blending I die cut with a stitched rectangle die and set it aside.  Then I stamped the Ship at Sea using my Tim Holtz stamp platform onto some Varsity Blue cardstock using a white pigment ink pad and applied clear embossing powder.  I then die cut the ship with a smaller stitched rectangle die and set it aside.  The last thing to stamp was the Ahoy which i stamped onto a piece of velum using the Nautical Blue ink pad (NOTE: my inkpad is super juicy and I used my heat gun held at a distance to speed up drying) I then tore the edges of the velum to add some interest to the layer.

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I affixed the blended background layer to an A2 sized side folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock. Next was attaching the piece of burlap which I removed threads from all sides to give the current appearance.  I then affixed the ship layer using a good layer of Tombow glue and placed a couple of acrylic blocks on top to really set the layer on top of the burlap. The Ahoy sentiment was attached using Tombow again behind the stamped letters and also where I knew I was going to be attaching the pearlescent embellishments.

Vintage car...

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


So... I thought I would share a Masculine card -





Cool & Quick I think!

My card base is a 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" square.
The cream cardstock Stitched layer is a 4 1/2" square.
Then I die cut 4 different patterns out with a Stitched
rounded corner die and laid that on top of the cream CS.
Then I die cut a smaller stitched rounded corner die out
of some white designer paper and stamped my 
Antique Pick up in some Not Quite Navy blue ink.
I blotted the image with a little of the blue and some
Memento Desert Sand to continue the flow of the 
style of card I was making - Then popped it up over the
larger design and that was it - I had plans to add
a sentiment but changed my mind the last second!
Hope you like my simple masculine card!

Encouragement Cards



Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm sharing a quick encouragement card featuring Victorine Originals Double Take Umbrella. This is one of my favorite umbrella stamps on the market. It comes with two stamps the outline and a solid stamp for upper portion of the umbrella. 



I love creating cards that are quick and easy, this card fills the bill. You could make several of the cards at once and use different sentiments. The stamp is great for under the weather and get well cards.


Stamp the umbrella on alcohol ink friendly cardstock, color the image using COPIC B39, B32, B34, C9 for shading the blue areas and G24, G43, G40 with G85 for shading the green areas. Fussy cut or use a scan n cut to cut images out, set aside. Die cut a piece of #80 Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with a rectangle die then run through machine with embossing folder, embossing only the top portion of the cardstock. Using a scoreboard score a line across cardstock beneath embossed area to create division between the embossed and smooth areas. Using a stamp position tool, stamp sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Adhere card panels to 4.25" x 5.5" top fold #110 Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock using fun foam or 3D mounting foam, add 3D mounting foam to the back of umbrellas and position them on card panel. Finish off with enamel dots and/or sequins.

Floral With Sympathy Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing with you uses Victorine Originals' Floral and Sayings stamp set.  I have used this set SO many times (see them here) and I recommend this stamp set to be in everyone's collection!
I stamped the floral stamp with VersaMark and embossed it with white powder.  For the sentiment, I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used the Kaisercraft Mandala die to frame the stamped area.  It was a perfect fit for the card!  All patterned papers are from DCWV's Peri & Peach stack.  To embellish, I added some sequins in the bottom right corner.  Adhesives used include ATG, Lineco Adhesive, and foam tape.
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!

Vintage Bicycling

Hi Sharon here from Mollie Moo's Crafty Place taking over the blog today, I have a little vintage transport for you:


I started by inking a white piece of card to make it look older. Using the same color ink I used the text stamp and stamped this 4 times covering my card. I then used Kraft card and again with same ink I stamped the Penny Farthing and fussy cut it out. 
My card was assembled using dark brown card to mat my base. I then added my inked card.
 I used foam squares to adhere my penny farthing raising it from the card:


 I added some coordinating nuvo drops.Finally I die cut some words from the dark brown card - I thought they were appropriate because wow! would you ride a bike with a seat like that!!!

A little magic that is Unicorn SPiT


Have you heard of the awesome product called Unicorn SPiT? If you haven't, you're missing out and must get some today!!! It is a gel glaze and stain product that works on so many surfaces! And it even smells good!

For this project, I used the Unicorn SPiT and a piece of wood. I started by sanding down the rough edges of my wood and then doing a little finger painting. Are you sold already?



The Unicorn SPiT is super concentrated so a little goes a long way. I applied my SPiT in circles starting from the center of the board. I then wet the board down with a spray bottle of water. Then I put a piece of saran wrap over the top. I sprayed the saran wrap to help my hands slide over it better, then pushed the paint from the center outward.

Once I was happy with the spreading of the SPiT, I removed the saran wrap. I did a little adjusting using more water, more SPiT and my hands! Yes, you get dirty with this product!

I was sort of going for the galaxy look with my board, so I grabbed the Victorine Originals Large Medallion stamp and got it wet with water. Then I lightly and carefully stamped it a few places on my board, wetting it with water as needed. Since the Unicorn SPiT is a water-based product, it reacts with the water. This leaves a cool watercolor-effect image you can see in the background.



After I was happy with my design, I let it dry and then sealed it. You want to use an oil-based sealer for SPiT projects. And, the polyurethane really makes the SPiT shine! Adding the gloss finish makes the paint look so much cooler! I put five coats of poly on this board.

To finish off my project, I used a Chalk Couture transfer. (Want to learn more and you're local to SumMore Fun's Creation Station? Check out the class schedule today.) Since the board is sealed with the poly, I can erase and change out my sentiment whenever I'd like!

If you're ready to get your fingers dirty, check out all the awesome colors of the Unicorn SPiT and order yours today!
