Country Style Wedding Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Springtime Love stamp set.  I love that stamp set.  It has so many uses!  This time, I made a wedding card with it.
I stamped the heart from Springtime Love in tan ink, then stamped the words in black and gray.  Using a stamp platform definitely made lining all those stamps up way easier than using an acrylic block!  I then used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut around the stamped image.  I created the background of the card using PhotoPlay Paper (We Do Collection), GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die, and silver washi tape.  I popped the stamped image up with foam tape on the center of the card.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Chasse' Your Dreams

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

One of my favorite colors is pink so for today's card that's the main color - with a bit of black and white thrown in for contrast. I used the SumMore Fun On Pointe stamp set. It features three different ballerina images, a pair of ballet shoes and some great sentiments. There's so much to choose from that I had a difficult time deciding exactly which image/sentiment to use.




Look at the artistic flair of the ballerina:


Isn't she pretty?



You can find the On Pointe stamp set (plus many other great ones!) in the SumMore Fun online store

If you're on Facebook, check out the sale items there, as Sabrina, the owner of SumMore Fun is offering some great deals there.

Wishes

Hi Sharon from Fiddly Diddly Cards and Crafts taking over the blog today.

For my card design today I am using 2 of the gorgeous clear polymer stamp sets from Raisin Boat:



 The first set Growing Love is has some pretty and quirky flowers as well as some accents that you can use on the flowers or along side of them. I chose one of the main flowers which looks like a dandelion, I stamped it in a light grey color. I think used a stippled effect stamp from same stamp to look like the floating seeds.
The sentiment I stamped in green is from Flourishing Thoughts stamp set. it has a large selection of sentiments that can be used for any type of card.
I matted a 4.25 x 5.5inch card base with green card in a shade similar to my sentiment ink and then added my stamped topper. 
I added some iridescent white gems among the 'seeds' for added interest.

Don't forget there are some fab sales going on over on SumMore Fun Facebook page so you don't already like them now is the time to do so.

Soda Birthday Cards

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The cards I am sharing with you use the SumMore Fun Soda-Lighted stamp set.  I love that set and it is a hit with my boys too!
I decided to make several of these cards, stamping them on patterned paper that is reminiscent of different kinds of pop.  First up, the "Mountain Dew" can.  I stamped the can image with the word soda in it using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I then used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut it out, then made a shadow layer to matte it on also with my Scan N Cut.  The patterned papers I used for this card are from DCWV's Fiesta Forever stack.  I added highlights to the can using white gel pen.
The other cards I made use patterned papers from MME Alphabet Soup-Boy paper pad.  This one is reminiscent of Orange Fanta.  The pop can is popped up with foam tape onto the white panel with the sentiment from the Fun Soda-Lighted stamp set.  That panel was die cut using a GMD wonky stitched rectangle die.  I also stamped bubbles on the background paper from that stamp set for a little extra fun.  I added sequins to the cards with Glue Dots.
Here is a look at the 4 different styles of cards that I made using the Fun Soda-Lighted stamp set.  Fun, right?!  Using my stamp platform made making multiples so quick!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Soda-Lighted We're Friends!

Hello, this is Jeanette from the design team. I'm soda-lighted you've stopped by the blog today!

Don't you just love a play on words? I know I do. So when I find a stamp set like the SumMore Fun Soda-Lighted set, I gravitate toward them. Just look at the fun sentiment, which of course is in the set...


Soda-lighted
to be your friend


You can also see that I've added some clear dots (Cloud 9 Rain Dots) to some of the bubbles, as well as for some embellishment in the bottom left corner of the card. 



The soda cans on the front of the card, which I colored with Copic Markers, are fairly large, which looks great on the card front, but I'm glad there's also a smaller can in the stamp set, which I used on the inside of my card.




I hope you'll head over to the SumMore Fun store and check out this stamp set as well as all the other goodies there.

And don't forget to spend some time with your friends as often as you can.

Giddy Up Cards

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The cards I am sharing with you use two Raisin Boat stamp sets called Giddy Up! and Urban Cowgirl.  Those sets work so well together!
First up, the sleek masculine card.  I promised masculine cards for you this month, and here it is!  The stitched background decoration was from the Urban Cowgirl set and the sentiment is from Giddy Up!.  They were stamped in Pumice Stone Distress Oxide.  I love how the Distress Oxides POP off of the dark cardstock!  I used my stamp platform to ensure all of my stamps were lined up perfectly and to double stamp the Distress Oxides to make them brighter.
I stamped the horse head from Giddy Up! using Versafine Onyx Black ink and die cut around it using a GMD slash stitched oval die.  I also matted behind that with the larger size of die cut.  Those were popped up with foam tape.  The only embellishment was three silver adhesive dots at the bottom.
Of course I had to make a card with pink for those cowgirls too!  It was made in the same manner, but this one is more rustic than the previous card.
The main differences are the stamped background stitching in Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide and the coloring in of the horse.  I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink and my aqua brush to watercolor the horse.  I thought it matched the background cardstock well!  I also stamped the sentiment in black on this card to make it stand out better from the brown.
Make sure you join me again next Wednesday for another set of cards that can be loved by guys, gals, and kids alike!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Elegance and Grace

Hello, Jeanette here from the design team. I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. For today's card I am using the On Pointe stamp set. I've always thought ballerinas are so elegant in their fancy dresses and I'm mesmerized by the grace with which they move. This stamp set captures both of those ideas - elegant and grace.

Just look at her -
She's a true beauty!



And she's not the only ballerina in the set:



I wanted her to be the focal part of my card so I multi-matted her to make her stand out. I also stamped the pair of ballerina shoes in the bottom right corner. I liked the bold stripe for a bit of grounding, but I also altered one stripe of it by placing a piece of skinny Washi Tape on it - the white strip that has the hearts on it.



I also decorated the inside of my card:



Be sure to head over to the SumMore Fun store to take a look at both the On Pointe stamp set and all the other goodies there, too. You'll surely find some bargains!

Football Birthday Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I'm back with another masculine card to share this week!  It uses the Raisin Boat First Down and Varsity Locker stamp sets from SumMore Fun
I started by stamping the football field stamp from RB First Down using Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink.  I used colored pencil to shade in the goal posts.  Next, I stamped the football onto kraft cardstock using brown ink, then cut around it using my Brother Scan N Cut.  I shaded the football tee with white gel pen.  I popped that off of the football field panel with foam tape.  The sentiment was from the RB Varsity Locker stamp set and I stamped that in black.  Other products used include Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder, Gridiron washi tape, solid color cardstocks, and Glue Dots permanent premium gluetape runner.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Guest design team member Ashley's coldest weather

Good morning today we are joined by the lovely Ashley from The Corner of Markland and Main
she has made a stunning card using our Winter Heart and Sole stamps set:



To make her card base, she started with watercolor paper and used a distress oxide ink to paint the background, using an embossing heat gun to dry it. She then flicked some water on it to create that oxidized look.


Next, using a puffy white embossing powder she heat emboss the tree which gave it a snow effect. The sentiment was added with a fine detail gold embossing powder. For a finishing touch she added some white twine from my stash.

Ashley this is a gorgeous card, thanks for joining us and if you like what you see please hop over to Ashley's blog and leave her some love.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Hello, Jeanette here from the design team. Are you excited about some football? It's Super Bowl weekend!

However, today's blog post isn't about football, it's about America's favorite pastime.....


BASEBALL!



I think this may be my favorite Victorine Originals stamp set:





The stamp set includes a fabulous baseball stamp - actually two of them in different sizes - but for my card I chose to use a baseball brad instead. 




I did add one of the stamped baseballs inside my card:




Okay, I'm out of here... I hope your team wins!
