Enjoy a Cabin Retreat

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today.

There are two new (pre-order) Raisin Boat stamp sets in the SumMore Fun online store - and I used BOTH of them on today's card.


The Cabin is from the Pier Happiness stamp set.
The word Enjoy is from the No Loss for Words stamp set.


I used the masking technique to add the tree behind the cabin.



Don't that look like the perfect place for a restful retreat?

Baby It's Cold Outside

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. I chose to use sentiments (and no stamped images) from two different Raisin Boat stamp sets on today's card.


Baby It's Cold Outside 

Winter Is Cool



It doesn't show up well in the photo, but I actually diecut the rectangles of blue and snowflake DP into the card, so it's an inlay of papers and not adhered on top of the base DP.

Shabby vs. Chic Christmas Tags

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties back with more Christmas projects for SumMore Fun, but this time it isn't a card, it's tags!  They feature the Victorine Originals Cactus Pine and Palm Christmas rubber stamp.
First up the chic tag.  I stamped the pine image of the Cactus Pine and Palm Christmas stamp onto a white tag-it with VersaMark ink using my stamp platform.  I embossed with Zing silver glitter embossing powder then watercolored the image with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and Sapphire Swift Sparkling Unicorn Spit sample.  I love the shimmer in that Unicorn Spit!  To finish off the tag, I used a In The Navy Trendy Page Dot and Classic Navy Trendy Twine.
Now for the shabby tag!   I stamped the pine image of the Cactus Pine and Palm Christmas stamp onto a kraft tag-it with VersaMark ink using my stamp platform.  I embossed with a dark green embossing powder then colored the image with Crayola watercolor pencils and went over it all with an aqua brush.  The finishing touches on this one were a Candy Cane Trendy Page Dot and Holly Berry Trendy Twine.  Now both of these tags are ready for adding to gifts!  Which one did you prefer, shabby or chic?

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

I'm Praying for You

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. I am a firm believer that sometimes all you need is a great sentiment to make a card. Well, a great sentiment and some papers and maybe an embellishment. That's exactly what today's card is.



The sentiment is from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set.

Three Wise Men Card

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here.  Today I am sharing a Christmas card that features the Victorine OriginalsThree Wise Men and Wishing You The Joys of the Season stamps from SumMore Fun.
I started with patterned papers from the Echo Park Wise Men Still Seek Him 6x6 pad.  The wise men and star were from the Three Wise Men stamp.  I used burgundy patterned paper, my embossing buddy, then stamped with VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The Wishing You The Joys of the Season sentiment was on white paper and I also stamped that with VersaMark but embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I seem to be embossing a lot lately!  The only embellishment I added was a series of GMD Patriotic sparkle enamel dots.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our house... trees are being decorated, nativity sets are in place, the village is still in boxes but will soon be on display. Presents are ready to wrap and Christmas music is playing on my iPhone (I listen to Pandora). With all this Christmas preparation, it seems fitting to make Christmas cards, too.

The poinsettia and pinecones from Dear Santa were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and watercolored with Distress Inks.  After they were dry, I cut them out with my Scan N Cut.  The sentiment is from the Merry Nature stamp set and is also stamped in VF Onyx Black.  The other items I used to create this card include GMD scalloped stitched rectangle dies, GMD Floral Frame dies, paper from TPS Rustic Noel, ATG, Foam tape, and red Pearl Pen.

You Make Such a Difference

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. For today's card I used a very subtle/soft color scheme with a bit of bright rose red.



The image is from the Victorine originals Floral and Sayings stamp set (one of my most favorite VO stamp sets) and the sentiment is from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set. I love how the sentiment fits perfectly in the space.

Thank You In Pink & Gold

Hello and happy Thanksgiving Eve!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here.  Before I dive into my project for today, I want to tell you about the stamp set I used, called Talking In Circles.  That stamp set makes creating cards a snap!  Do yourself a favor and check it out on SumMore Fun because you can get the whole 4x6" stamp set for as little as $0.99!  Yes, it is truly that reduced of a price!
Now on to my card...
I stamped the thank you circle from the Raisin Boat Talking In Circles set using tan ink.  I die cut several elements of this card with manual dies to layer it how I wanted.  With a couple sheets of pretty papers and the Talking In Circles stamp set you can have a card done very quickly.  I embellished this card with burlap ribbon and dots of gold pearl pen.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Owl Wish You a Happy Birthday

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. I have a birthday card to share with you today. I used two different Raisin Boat stamp sets to make it. The tree is from the Merry Nature set.



Look at the details on the stamped tree: 


It's a beautiful tree!


The sentiment is from the Raisin Boat No Limits stamp set. Be sure to check out these two stamp sets as well as other things in the SumMore Fun store. Most items are currently significantly reduced in price.

And whatever you do today...

Train Birthday Card

Hello and happy Wednesday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with this train birthday card.  The Victorine Originals 1502 train stamp is one I have had for several years...in fact when I created with this stamp a couple of years ago and shared it on Facebook, it started the ball rolling for me to be a part of the SumMore Fun design team!
I started by stamping the train onto gray flecked cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and my stamp platform.  I wanted the front part of the train track to stick out from the circle die cut, so I fussy cut around that area and traced around the outline of the die so I would know where I wanted the stamp to end up.
Then I slid the circle die under the area of the train track that I had fussy cut and lined up the die with the circle I had drawn on the paper.  I then die cut it with my Spellbinders Platinum 6.
Here it is all matted with a black circle and popped up with foam tape on the card.  I used torn edge dies as well as patterned and metallic papers to add to the rustic feel of the card.
I thought the card needed a sentiment, so I got out the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set and stamped it in black on the gray flecked paper I used Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and Black Pearl Pen dots for embellishments. 

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Happy Birthday 2U!

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. I hope you've also been stopping by the SumMore Fun online store where you'll find LOTS of mark downs. In fact, some prices are so low it's almost like getting the stamps for free.

Take Talking in Circles, for instance. (It's the stamp set I used on today's card.) The clearance price right now is a mere $1.99. WOW! That is an unbelievable price!


And just look at the possibilities - birthday, thinking of you, new baby, thank you, congrats, plus more. I decided to make a birthday card using it, because we all need birthday cards from time to time, right?



Look how nicely it stamps:



I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then for a pop of color I added two yellow enamel dots.

Beat This Cancer Card

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties back with another cancer themed card.  This time it has a masculine kidney cancer theme.  That is the awesome part about the SumMore Fun You Can stamp set...with a different ink color and patterned paper, the whole FEEL of the card can be totally different.  You can see other cards I have made with this stamp set HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
I started by die cutting a piece of the patterned paper with a wonky stitched rectangle die then stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I matted it with coordinating colors of cardstock then added three eyelets to the top right corner.  I stamped the cancer ribbon with Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink, heat embossed it with clear powder, then cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut. I did have to use my craft knife to cut the inside hole of the ribbon.  The ribbon was popped up with foam tape and the card was complete!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Birch Tree Thanks

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. 

I've had the Victorine Originals Birch Trees stamp for a while and had never inked it up until this week. Now I'm wondering why... because I really REALLY like it! I stamped it onto colored cardstock and then colored it (lightly) with Prisma colored pencils.



The sentiment is from the Victorine Originals Floral and Sayings stamp set.

Thankful Fall Wreath Card

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with this card today.  I had so much fun using different elements from the Raisin Boat Thankful stamp set to create it.  You can get this stamp set for a steal of a price...only $5.99 and it works for fall and winter!
I used the wreath builder technique on this card with my stamp platform.  I cut a 4" square of white cardstock and stamped the grapevine wreath in the center of it using brown Memento ink.  Then I stamped leaves and berries using Distress Oxides in Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, Fossilized Amber, and Fired Brick.  The bow was also stamped in Fired Brick.  The sentiment was the last thing I stamped and that was with the brown Memento ink.  I layered the stamped panel onto printed papers from DCWV's Fall & Halloween Basics stack and added a mustard burlap ribbon along the left side.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Autumn Birthday Greetings

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. Fellow DT member Beth and I have been inking up the Raisin Boat Arboretum Leaves stamp set a lot lately. Have you been enjoying seeing the cards we've made with it? It really is an amazing stamp set.

Sooooo... YES, I have used it again for today's card. Instead of using a sentiment from the Arboretum Leaves set, I used the Happy Birthday from the Victorine Originals Floral and Sayings stamp set on my card.


Not only are there gorgeous leaves and an acorn in the set, look at that slab of wood. WOW!
