I Can't Thank You Enough

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today!

I made a quick card this week using the gorgeous horse from the Raisin Boat Giddy Up! stamp set. If you're like me, sometimes there just isn't enough time to get everything done. This was one of those weeks. Quick and easy makes me happy - I still get to make a card, even when there isn't much time.


Sentiment - Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts

Tractor Birthday Card

Welcome to another Wednesday project from Beth's Beauties!  This time I have a masculine card to share that uses the Raisin Boat Homegrown and Flourishing Thoughts stamp sets.
First of all, I stamped the awesome tractor stamp from the Raisin Boat Homegrown set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Once that was dry, I used watercolor pencils and a water brush to add the color.  The panel was die cut with a GMD stitched rectangle die, then matted with a black rectangle die cut with a GMD wonky stitched rectangle die.  The panel was popped up with foam tape onto the card base.
The patterned papers in TPS Yee-Haw! paper pad were perfect for this card.  The sentiment was from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set and was stamped with SB.com Succulent ink.  To embellish, I added burlap ribbon and dots of silver Pearl Pen (which were not centered like I had originally intended...oops!).  I guess imperfection is part of life, right?
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

32 Cards From One 6x6 Paper Pad

Raise your hand if you are completely in awe of Kristie Marcotte and her ability to power through entire 6x6 paper pads...yeah me too!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today I decided to embrace that challenge for myself!  It wasn't easy and took me three days off and on to finish the paper pad, but I ended up with these 32 cards.
I used the My Mind's Eye My Favorite Things 6x6 paper pad.  I have had it floating around in my craft room for quite some time.  I picked it because it had both masculine and feminine papers in it.  I will say that I should have been more selective because some of the papers were geared more towards scrapbooking and that left me with only side of paper to use with those sheets.  However, it didn't stop me :)
In true Kristie style, I started with some card sketches.  This first set of cards were made with Reverse Confetti sketch #32.  
I used the following supplies on these cards:
  • Raisin Boat Talking in Circles stamp set (only $3.99 right now!)
  • Scrapbook.com Pine hybrid ink
  • Scrapbook.com Pink Lemonade hybrid ink
  • Cottage Cutz stitched circle dies
  • brads
  • brown and coral Recollections cardstock
  • flower

The second set of cards were made with Reverse Confetti sketch #53.  
I used the following supplies on these cards:
  • Raisin Boat Night Owl stamp set
  • Raisin Boat All In Toile stamp set

  • Scrapbook.com Succulent hybrid ink
  • Scrapbook.com Camel hybrid ink (inking around the edge of the owl)
  • colored pencils
  • Brother Scan N Cut (owl and party hat)
  • Scrapbook.com Pink Lemonade hybrid ink
  • Gray, tan, and black Recollections cardstock
  • Twisted Lime Trendy Twine
The third set of cards were made with Reverse Confetti sketch #34.  
I used the following supplies on these cards:
  • Raisin Boat Talking In Circles stamp set
  • Scrapbook.com Charcoal hybrid ink
  • Cottage Cutz stitched square die
  • black Recollections cardstock
  • circle punch
  • markers
  • Glossy Accents (on bottom right circles and flower centers)
These baby cards were created with OWH Sketch #154.
I used the following supplies on these cards:
  • Raisin Boat Talking In Circles stamp set
  • Scrapbook.com Daffodil hybrid ink
  • Cottage Cutz scalloped stitched circle die
  • Cottage Cutz stitched circle die
  • black Recollections cardstock
  • Totally Lemon Trendy Twine
  • diaper pin brad
The last cards made from a sketch used OWH sketch #142.
I used the following supplies on these cards:
The following cards were not made with any type of sketch.  I was simply using up the papers I had left from the paper pad.
These fish cards were created using the following additional supplies:
  • Raisin Boat Time Flies stamp set
  • Raisin Boat No Loss For Words stamp set
  • Scrapbook.com Black hybrid ink
  • Scrapbook.com Caribbean hybrid ink (blended with brush)
  • Watercolored fish with Scrapbook.com Succulent, Pink Flamingo, and Sugar Cookie hybrid inks
  • Cottage Cutz stitched rounded rectangle dies
  • black Recollections cardstock
  • white gel pen
  • silver brads
The next two cards each have a different layout, but are similar with their elements.
Supplies used include:
  • Raisin Boat Talking In Circles stamp set
  • Scrapbook.com Succulent hybrid ink
  • GMD double stitched in and out circle die
  • Cottage Cutz scalloped stitched circle die
  • black Recollections cardstock
  • Totally Lemon Trendy Twine
  • Scrapbook.com Charcoal hybrid ink
  • Totally Black Trendy Twine
  • White Pearl Pearl Pen
Supplies for the two butterfly cards include:
  • Raisin Boat No Loss For Words stamp set
  • Scrapbook.com Black hybrid ink
  • Cottage Cutz Kayla Butterfly die
  • Cottage Cutz scalloped stitched circle die
  • label die
  • black, gray, white Recollections cardstock
  • Totally Lemon Trendy Twine
These final four cards really were using up the last of the last scraps!
The Happy Birthday cards supplies include:

The final card supplies include:
Adhesives used on all cards include ATG, foam tape, and Scotch Tacky Glue.  I used up every little bit of those patterned papers.  The last couple scraps were used for embellishments and die cutting.

Whew!  Did you make it all the way through this post?  If so, I hope you are inspired to try something new with your crafting...maybe even crafting your way through a whole paper pad like I did!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Rainbow Floral Love Card

Hello again!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here.  Today I have a rainbow "love" card that could easily be used for Valentine's Day, but I actually sent this one out as a birthday card.  It works great for any occasion!
The stamp I used was from Raisin Boat's Imagine stamp set.  It is a huge stamp!  Using a stamp platform is a must for this technique.  I started inking up my stamp a little section at a time from left to right with the following Scrapbook.com inks:  Mardi Gras, Mermaid, Daffodil, Orange Spice, and Confetti Pink.  I cleaned my stamp after each color so I wouldn't transfer the ink to the next ink pad.  It was the first time I had done this technique and looking back, I wished I had taken a damp paintbrush to feather out the edges of the ink on the stamp before stamping so the lines between the darker colors would have been more blurred.  Live and learn I guess!  I think it still turned out pretty :)  I finished off the card with a die cut black cardstock layer and coordinating striped patterned paper.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Thinking of You

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today!

I love designer paper. I almost always use it on my cards. But not today. Today I chose to only use bright/bold cardstock. And an uncolored image, too (*gasp). Unheard of, right?


The horse image is from the Raisin Boat Giddy Up! stamp set.




The Thinking of you sentiment is from the Raisin Boat No Loss for Words stamp set.


Thanks again for stopping by!

Valentine's Day Duo of Cards

Hello all!  I have been creating for Valentine's day and loving every minute of it!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with a duo of cards, one of which used the negative space from the die cutting of the other.
This was the first card I created.  I stamped the brush strokes from Raisin Boat's Strokes of Pride stamp set and a stamp platform.  The colors of Scrapbook.com inks I used from top to bottom are:  Pink Flamingo, Candy Shop Pink, Confetti Pink, Mixed Berry, and Cardinal Red.  I flipped the cardstock between each color, so the brush stroke would be reversed from the previous stamping.  I then die cut a heart out of white cardstock and also cut a smaller heart out of the center to create a peek-a-boo for the stamping on the base layer.
At the bottom of the card, I added the LOVE sentiment from the Raisin Boat No Loss For Words stamp set with black ink.  I embellished with Pearl Pen dots in Pearl Pink and Red.  Once those were dry, I mounted the stamped panel onto a black layer, then adhered it to my card base.
The second card is very similar to the first, but as I mentioned earlier, I used the negative white cardstock from the die cutting of first card to create the front of this one.  Once again, I stamped the brush strokes from Raisin Boat's Strokes of Pride stamp set with a stamp platform in the same manner as the first card.  Then I trimmed down the die cut panel so the brush strokes would be visible on the outside of the panel as well as through the heart.
Once again, the bottom of the card was stamped with the LOVE sentiment from the Raisin Boat No Loss For Words stamp set in black ink.  I embellished with Pearl Pen dots in Pearl Pink and Red.  The front panel was popped up with foam tape and the card was complete!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Happy Birthday Crocus

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today!

I love flowers - the coloring kind. They are perfect year-round. Even when there is snow on the ground. 

This gorgeous flower is from the SumMore Fun Crocus Craving stamp set. The sentiment is from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set. 




I used another stamp from the Crocus Craving set, plus the Happy Birthday sentiment from the same set on the inside of my card...
