Cupcake Tags

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties with you today.  Instead of a card, which is my usual creation, I decided to think outside of the box and make tags this week!  They use the sweet Raisin Boat Teatime Treats stamp set.
I started by stamping the images and sentiments from the Teatime Treats stamp set onto white cardstock.  For the images, I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut them out and painted them with Sparkling Unicorn Spit.
The tags I used are Large Tag-Its in Lemon and Kraft.  I added various washi tape to them, Trendy Page Dots, Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine, and Grape Fizz Trendy Twine.
The cupcake circle was popped up with foam tape onto the tag and the sentiment was simply glued on.  The finishing touch was Pearl Pen dots in Gold, Glitter Pink, and Pearl Pink.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sparkle!

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

I found some amazing sparkly paper not too long ago - in the office supply area of a store. Hmmmmm... it sparkles and has great texture, but says it won't flake. That's a plus for this gal who has problems with glitter. AND... it says you can actually run it through your computer/printer. 

In that case, why not try stamping directly onto it, right?

It worked perfectly - and looks amazing (unfortunately the photos don't do it justice). The stamps from the Victorine Originals Floral and Sayings stamp set were the perfect choice to complement this sparkly card - so rich and gorgeous!


I am not - NOT - a symmetrical type of person. That's really kind of surprising because I'm an extremely organized type of person and they often tend to be symmetrical types, too. But I'm over-the-grid asymmetrical. ;) So I first made the card without the additional (Prima) flower and the symmetry of the look was driving me crazy. I just couldn't handle it. So I added an off-centered flower. I'm much happier now. LOL!




I don't know about you, but I think life needs more sparkle!

Happy Graduation Cards

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The cards I am sharing with you use the Victorine Originals Happy Graduation stamp.  There is also a larger Happy Graduation stamp with the same design HERE.  I love the elegance of it!
 I stamped the Happy Graduation stamp using my stamp platform and VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  I heat embossed it with clear powder and colored in the image.  For this red one, the red is just Sharpie marker and the yellow is Sparkling Unicorn Spit that I painted on undiluted.
 I made other cards as well in different colors, only changing the color of Sparkling Unicorn Spit for the had and ribbon.
It was fun to change things up with these cards.  I embellished with various solid twists of Trendy Twine.  The star die cut is from the GMD double stitched in and out cut star dies.  Patterned papers are from DCWV's Dots, Stripes, and Plaids and Seaside Yacht stacks.
Note:  The hat and ribbon on this were actually painted with Dolly Firebird Unicorn Spit, but it came out  as a bright pink on the white paper instead of red.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Happy Holidays

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

I've been making Christmas cards for the Troops (I'm trying to get a box of them ready to donate) so I was excited to pull out the Raisin Boat Holiday Hang Ups stamp set this week. It's such a pretty set with an assortment of ornaments and that gorgeous branch. There are sentiments and other goodies in the set, too. And because there's no need for coloring, it makes it really fast and easy to put together a card with this set.




While I love the ornaments, I'm not overly crazy about the ink I used on the long ornament - I think next time I might heat emboss the ornaments instead. Wouldn't that look gorgeous?




I even stamped the branch and an ornament on the inside of my card...

Embossed Birthday Greetings

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

I'm using the Floral and Sayings stamp set again this week, but I've tried something different with it. The touch turned out really subtle, but hopefully it shows up enough in the pictures for you to see it.


I used the WOW! Pop Embossing Powder to create the flowers element on the card. This embossing powder has both orange and pops of gray and white in it. It really is luscious!

I also used some glittery decorative tape on the card for a bit of glitz.


The Happy Birthday is not heat embossed to give it a different texture.

Mother's Day Quilt Card

Good Morning and Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Marvelous Mom stamp set.  This set is one that I fell in love with for the INSIDE sentiments it has.
 As you can see, the outside of my card simply has the word "Mom" stamped on it from the Marvelous Mom stamp set.  I wanted the whole card to have a simple cozy feel to it :)  Other products used on the card front include a SDS Quilt Mini SVG , DCWV Country Floral cardstock, vellum, square lace die, Twisted Lime Trendy Twine, Skittles embellishments, and a scissors charm.  Adhesives include ATG, Scotch Tacky Glue, and mini Glue Dots.
 Now check out the inside with the awesome sentiments that are included in the Marvelous Mom stamp set.  Perfect, right?!  No need to try to think up the perfect thing to write to your mom, this stamp set has you covered!
 Here is a close up of the Marvelous Mom stamp set so you can see all the amazing sentiments it has in it.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Success Index Graduation Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Opportunity Knocks stamp set.  I made this one for my oldest son who is having his 6th grade graduation next week!
I used chalk paper to stamp the Opportunity Knocks stamps onto with VersaMark ink.  I then embossed with white embossing powder.  It turned out great!  All the papers are from the DCWV DIY Chalk Party stack.  I did use Tombow Xtreme adhesive on this card because the chalk papers are a little tougher to keep stuck together.
I added some Totally Lemon Trendy Twine around the center band, plus made a tassel out of it as well.  A few GMD New Years sparkle enamel dots and the card was finished!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Play Ball!

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

Way back when (a.k.a. a few years ago) I received my very first Victorine Originals stamp set and it remains one of my most favorite stamp sets. I actually use it quite often and am always delighted when I have opportunity to do so.



Today is such a day - because in our family, yesterday was supposed to be the beginning of Softball Season. There's a church in town that hosts Softball for those with Special Needs. Our autistic son Brock loves playing softball. There are no outs, every run counts, and everyone cheers for those who run across home plate, no matter which team they're on. 

But then again, some weeks are a RAIN OUT! Like yesterday.

Oh well...

Play Ball!

Rocket Grad Card

Good Morning!  Happy first day of May!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Opportunity Knocks stamp set.  It is a great set for graduations and other school related projects.
This card started with watercolor paper and did an acrylic block watercolor technique (you can see a video with a how-to here) and Distress Inks in Fired Brick, Mustard Seed, and Salty Ocean.  Once dry, I stamped the rocket and sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I used my embossing buddy on the top of the paper, then stamped the stars with VersaMark and heat embossed them with white powder.  I added doodles with black and white gel pens.  The only embellishments were Pearl Pens in black, blue, and red.  Products also used on this card include ATG, solid colored cardstock, and GMD Stitched rectangle dies.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
