Vintage Baseball Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing uses the Victorine Originals Baseball stamp set from SumMore Fun.  I am always in need of masculine cards, so this one was perfect to create!
 I started by stamping the sheet music, baseball, and baseball bat in different colors of ink.  The bat and ball were cut around with my Brother Scan N Cut.  I added the stamped elements to my card base that I had decorated with papers from DCWV's Industrial Chic stack and a tie of Berry Trendy Twine.  I really liked the vintage feel this card has!
Here is a look at what the whole Baseball stamp set looks like!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Using Cardboard Is SumMore Fun!

Hello, Jeanette here from the design team with a card to share with you.

I ordered a couple of books and they arrived this week I looked at the corrugated cardboard they came in and thought to myself... Useful? Sure! Why not!

So I tore and tore and tore a piece to get the size I wanted, making sure to see  bit of ruggedness, too. Then I taped it into my stamping platform using Washi Tape (since it was too thick for the magnets to work)... and I stamped the tree from the Raisin Boat Winter Heart and Sole stamp set onto that piece of cardboard. 


I kind of like the way it looks!



I stamped the ice skates onto 110# white cardstock so they would be sturdy enough to pop up with foam tape. The heart is a brad - it worked fine since it had longer posts, not wee short ones like some brads have.





I wanted to do something with the inside of my card, too, so I took a similar (yet taller) tree from the Raisin Boat Merry Nature stamp set and stamped it on the inside.



I hope you'll look at things around you (like cardboard) in new ways - thinking of ways to use them in your card-making. It's fun, creative, and maybe even a wee bit eco-friendly, too.


Have a GREAT day!

Birthday Dots Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Victorine Originals Watercolor Snowman, Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts, and Raisin Boat Guilty Pleasures stamp sets.
I started by using the two circle stamps from the Watercolor Snowman set and randomly stamped them using Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Dusty Concord, and Squeezed Lemonade.  I spritzed water on it to create the oxidized look.  I matted that with a scalloped rectangle die cut in black cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped from Flourishing Thoughts in black ink.  I embellished with Twisted Blue Berry Trendy Twine.
For the inside of the card, I stamped one more circle from the Watercolor Snowman set, and the sentiment and images from the Guilty Pleasures stamp set.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

I {Heart} Snow

Hello, Jeanette here from the design team. Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Since many places across the United States are dealing with Snow, snow, and more SNOW, I thought it would be a great idea to make a snow'y card. 

I used two stamp sets from the SumMore Fun store to make it. Raisin Boat's Winter Heart and Sole provided the gorgeous tree and snowflakes and Victorine Originals Watercolor Snowman provided the specks of snow, the snowbank, and the sentiment.




I first stamped the tree with Memento Cottage Ivy Ink. Once the ink was dry, I dabbed Versamark Ink on the tree and added white embossing powder to it. I wanted the tree to look like it had snow hanging on it. 

The snowflakes, specks of snow, and snow bank are all stamped with Versafine Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder, too.

A couple of snowflake brads and a squirrel brad, too, add some interest and dimension to the card.

Thanks again for stopping by!

Ice Skating Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Winter Heart and Sole stamp set.
I created the winter woods scene using the pine tree from the Winter Heart and Sole stamp set and Distress Oxides in Pine Needles and Walnut Stain.  I stamped a tree, then did a second and even third generation stamping without re-inking.  I liked the feeling of depth that created.  Then I used an aqua brush and Pumice Stone Distress Oxide and made the ground around the trees.  The icy water was created by watering down Sapphire Swift Sparkling Unicorn Spit and painting it on the cardstock.  It is so shimmery in real life!  I then stamped the ice skates from Winter Heart and Sole in black and matted it with die cut circles.  I watercolored them with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide and undiluted Sapphire Swift Sparkling Unicorn Spit.  I added some In The Navy Trendy Twine and the sentiment stamp and the card was complete!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Snow and Ice - No problem!


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

I am actually out of state for a meeting - but IF I were home I would be dealing with a lot of snow and maybe even some ice. My state is in a Winter Storm area this weekend. 

But that's okay... when it snows we can just stay inside and make cards, right?

Speaking of cards, I made a super fast one to share with you today. You know card making doesn't have to be laborious... and with the versatility of Victorine Originals and Raisin Boat stamp sets we can go fast/easy sometimes.


Sentiment - 
Snow, ice, chilly day...
love it out here anyway.



Look! I added a Snowflake Brad 
and some glitter brads to the center 
of the snowflakes on the designer paper.

This stamp is part of the Raisin Boat Winter Heart and Sole stamp set.

A few layers of paper... and my card is finished.

Thanks again for stopping by! I hope we'll see you again soon! And be sure to go to the SumMore Fun store where there are a lot of items on sale!

Unassembled Snowman Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Victorine Originals Watercolor Snowman stamp set.
I created the background with light blue cardstock and cut "snowbanks" from the DCWV 6x6 Paper Lace stack.  Then I got to stamping!  I added the snowman arms and hat onto the background paper.  For the snowman circles, I die cut three sizes and stamped the face on the smallest and scarf on the medium one.  Inks used include Distress Oxides in Vintage Photo and Dusty Concord, Versafine Onyx Black and an orange marker.  The snowballs were popped up with foam tape for dimension.  Last, I added the sentiment on a white banner and added three glitter enamel dots.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

A Little Flakey

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

I'm not going to lie... I've been totally enjoying temperatures in the near 60's and no, I don't live in the southern states. I live in Illinois. But I'm not going to complain about the sunshine and warm temperatures.

That being said, I know it's winter, so I made a snowman card for today's blog post.



Featuring the Victorine Originals 
Watercolor Snowman stamp set:


I love the font of the sentiment
and the delicate snowflake...

and then there's the snowman hat!



Of course there are also balls of snow to build a snowman with,
but for this card I chose not to do that.

Okay, true story. 
The main reason I didn't was because my white ink is no longer stamp-able. UGH!

But that's okay, I'll get some white ink and make a snowman soon. 

Thanks again for stopping by!
Be sure to head to the SumMore Fun store to check out the sale!

Some Assembly Required

Good Morning, Sharon here from Mollie Moo's Crafty Place. How is everyone liking the sales?
I'm here to share my design with you using a super cute stamp set called Watercolor Snowman.

He comes unassembled so I decided to stamp him the same way.


I stamped his head and body on black card in an opaque ink and added his face by coloring the stamp with markers.

I then stamped his arms, hat and scarf on separate pieces of white card.



I matted these onto the same card stock used for my card base. I then added the Free Snowman sentiment to the arm stamps.

 I decided to make my card into an impossible card and the details of this can be found on my blog post.


I thought this was a great way to display all the snowman parts - You have to go hunting around the card for them!
