Autumn Leaves Card

Hello and happy Wednesday!  Once again, Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you.  I used this month's free with $50 SumMore Fun purchase stamp set to create this card.  It is Raisin Boat's Arboretum Leaves set and you only have today and tomorrow to take advantage of that deal!
Using a stamp platform, I stamped the leaves from the Arboretum Leaves set onto white paper using Distress Oxide Inks in the following colors:  Aged Mahogany, Fired brick, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, and Peeled Paint.  Once dry, I cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut with a 0.4 offset.  I added a white matted DCWV Gold threaded Burlap paper banner to the front of the card base.  I glued the yellow, orange, and burgundy leaves down, then popped up the green leaf with foam tape and added Trendy Twine in the following colors, Totally Pumpkin, Totally Lemon, and Totally Red.
At the bottom of the card, I stamped a sentiment from that stamp set in brown ink, then added three dots of Gold Pearl Pen to finish it off.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Fall Is In the Air

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

Fall is in the Air!

The temperatures have dropped. The leaves are changing color. Soup is simmering on the stove (or in my case, in the Crock Pot). I love this time of year!

To celebrate the changing of the seasons, I made an Autumn card, using the Raisin Boat Arboretum Leaves stamp set from SumMore Fun. And the good news is - you can get this stamp set for FREE with a $50 purchase (but only through the end of October). It can also be purchased for only $5.99 right now (yes, it's on sale)... but hurry! I'm not sure when the sale will end.


There is a little splash type of stamp in the stamp set. I randomly stamped it and then blended some of the same ink onto the lighter piece of designer paper, too.


I love the Albert Camus quote that is in the stamp set, too.

Scattered Leaves Card

Hello crafty friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with this fall card.  The stamp set I used on it is Raisin Boat's Arboretum Leaves and is free with your $50+ order from SumMore Fun through the month of October or it can be purchased for only $5.99.
I started with a piece of kraft cardstock measuring 4"x5.25".  I used Distress Oxide Inks in the following colors to stamp on the kraft:  Aged Mahogany, Fired brick, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Squeezed Lemonade, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Pine Needles, Peeled Paint, and Antique Linen.  On the large stamps, I started with the darker color on my stamp platform, then inked with the lighter color around the edges of the stamp and re-stamped them.  I then spritzed a fine mist of water over it to create the oxidized look.
The sentiment was stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black and matted with 2 other banner strips before securing it to the card front with a brad.  I also added 3 brads among the leaves.  To finish the card, I matted the kraft layer onto yellow and red cardstock for an extra pop of color.  I had a lot of fun incorporating all but one of the stamps from the Arboretum Leaves stamp set into this card!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

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 seem to always need more birthday cards and my favorite Victorine Originals stamp set to use for Birthday cards is the Floral and Sayings set. I've used this set again and again, but I don't think I've ever used it on this kind of paper before.

Witchy Halloween Night Card

Hello all! Beth from Beth's Beauties back with another Halloween card today.  I used a sentiment stamp from the Victorine Originals Halloween Kids stamp set, die cuts, and patterned paper to create it.
I found some lime green patterned paper that would create a fun scene for the Spellbinders witch and bat die cuts.  I die cut one layer of black cardstock and 2 layers of yellow craft foam and glued them together.  I like the yellow shadow effect that made, almost like the moonlight hilighting the witch and bats!  The lime panel was mounted onto a black die cut of a GMD Loopy Rectangle die.
For the sentiment stamp, I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with Zing! Black Glitter embossing powder.  It really gave the sentiment sparkle and shine!  Perfect for bringing attention to the sentiment.  The final touch was adding enamel dots in coordinating colors.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Happy Howl-ween!

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

Here it is the middle of October, so for those of you who make/send Halloween cards, it's time to get them made. I hope this cute little stamp will get your creativity running (but it's best if you don't cover your head while running). 


Isn't that hound just adorable? It's part of the Raisin Boat Howl-ween Hounds stamp set, which is currently at liquidation prices in the SumMore Fun store, so be sure to check it out before it's gone.


There is just so much to like about this set!

Kick Cancer's Butt Card

Hello and good Wednesday morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with this card.  October is a great month to remember those who are battling cancer.  This card went to the mom of a friend of mine who is doing just that.  The stamps I used on it are from the SumMore Fun You Can stamp set.  Pssst...you can get that whole set for ONLY $5.99 right now!
The focal point of the card was created by taking a 4" square of white cardstock and the cancer ribbon stamp from the You Can stamp set and doing the wreath builder technique.  The inks I used were Distress Oxides in Dusty Concord and Pine Needles.  After that was fully dry, I die cut around it with a GMD Pleated Square die.  I added an accent on top of that with another die cut square with a Totally Grape Trendy Twine cancer ribbon and enamel dots.
I used a couple colors of patterned paper for the background of the card and wrapped Totally Grape and Twisted Lime Trendy Twines around it.  The sentiment is also from the You Can stamp set and was stamped in black.  The finishing touch was a few more glitter enamel dots.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

It's a Wash

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

I love LOVE the many watercolor wash cards I see on blogs, Instagram, Facebook, etc. Impressive! I am normally a stamp and color kind of gal but for today's card, I decided to try my hand at the watercolor wash technique.



I just did a random swish (is that a word) of color with watercolor paints and a soaked paint brush.



Once the watercolor was completely dry, I stamped the GORGEOUS Victorine Originals Large Sunflower stamp with a rich black ink and stamped on top of the watercolored piece. 

I didn't use the entire image (it would have fit but I decided I liked this look better for this card).



This card was so easy to make and I like the look. I hope you do, too!

Mummy Halloween Card

Hello and welcome back to another Wednesday post!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here, and today I am sharing this cute Halloween card that features stamps from the Victorine Originals Halloween Kids stamp set and the Raisin Boat Strokes of Pride stamp set.
First I created the background on white cardstock with the brush stroke stamp from Strokes of Pride stamp set, stamp platform, and Distress Oxides.  The colors I used include Fossilized Amber, Black Soot, Wilted Violet, Lucky Clover, and Spiced Marmalade.  I then smooshed some watered down Black Soot over the whole background, then used a blending tool to distress the edges with Black Soot.
The sentiment from the Halloween Kids stamp set was also stamped onto the background with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  The Halloween Kids mummy was stamped onto a scrap piece of white paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and fussy cut with my Brother Scan N Cut.  The face was watercolored with Antique Linen Distress Oxide.  The black shadow layer was a 0.8" shadow of the mummy also cut with the Brother Scan N Cut.  I adhered the mummy to the background with foam tape.  The finishing touch was a trio of enamel dots.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
