Party Coop Card

Hello friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties back again with another chicken themed card.  You aren't tired of them yet, are you?  I've still got a couple more that I can't wait to share with you!  This card features what may be my favorite stamps of the whole release from the Raisin Boat Chicken Coop stamp set. I just love that coop!
First off, I stamped the coop and feed stamps from the Raisin Boat Chicken Coop set in black ink and die cut around the coop with a GMD wonky stitched square die.  I cut the chicken feed stamp out with my Scan N Cut. Both were colored with Artify alcohol markers.  I then came back to the coop panel and stamped the chicken feed from the same stamp set.  The bag of feed was popped up with foam tape and the whole square panel was distressed with brown ink around it.
Once again, the sentiment was from the Raisin Boat Chicken Coop stamp set and was stamped in black ink.  The feather was a Cottage Cutz die cut.  All of the woodgrain cardstock was included with the Chicken Pack bundle which is now sold out.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Giddy Up with a Birthday Greeting

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

You've been seeing a lot of chickens here on the blog for the past little bit. Aren't they fun! As we've told you, the Chicken Pack bundle has sold out but the Chicken Coop and Chicken Soup stamp sets are still available for purchase.

For today's card I'm going to show you another way to use the designer paper that came in the bundle - if you were lucky enough to get one of those bundles. The papers were gorgeous woodgrain designs, which went with the chickens, but they also work beautifully with the Raisin Boat Giddy Up stamp set.


I used a Happy Birthday greeting from the Raisin Boat No Loss for Words on the card, too.



Thanks again for stopping by the blog.
I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

Birthday Chick Card

Good morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here to share another chicken themed card today.  This one has a totally different feel to it than the others that I shared.  I went super cutesy with this one :)  The stamps I used are from the Raisin Boat Chicken Coop stamp set.  The Chicken Pack bundle that was available this past weekend is sold out, but two of the three stamp sets are available for individual purchase, so go check them out!
To start with, I stamped the balloons and chick from RB Chicken Coop with Scrapbook.com black hybrid ink onto white paper.  After coloring them with Artify markers, I cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut.  I decided to do a slimline card for the very first time with the images because I thought that layout would look the best.  Once the balloons were arranged how I liked them on a white piece of cardstock, I glued them down and drew black lines to the chick to look like strings.
For accents on the balloons, I added small enamel dots and white gel pen doodles.  I stamped the sentiment from the RB Chicken Coop in black as well then added Trendy Twines that matched the balloons (Orangesicle, Twisted Lime, Peppermint, Lemon Tart, Blue Berry TT).  The whole stamped panel was popped up with foam tape and matted with patterned cardstock from the DCWV Celebration Stack.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

A Sick Chick

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

Did you hear? The LIMITED EDITION Chicken Pack has sold out. I hope you got your order in before that happened, but if you didn't, don't despair. The Chicken Coop and Chicken Soup stamp sets are still available for purchase so be sure to "chick" them out.

I used the Chicken Soup stamp set to make a quick/easy Get Well card...




I stamped the sentiment first and then put a little post it note over the top of it before stamping the image. That worked so well. Once I'd stamped the image, I just lifted the post it note off and did some minimal coloring of the image.


After that it was just a matter of assembling the card.


But wait! There's more. I also used a sentiment and an image on the inside of my card...



Thanks again for stopping by the blog.
I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

*NEW RELEASE* Nesting Box Card

Welcome to another SumMore Fun blog post!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here.  I am super excited about a new/re-release that we are having.  It is called the Chicken Pack and I absolutely love this fun set:

***UPDATE*** The Chicken Pack is now SOLD OUT but you can still purchase the Chicken Coop and Chicken Soup stamp sets separately.

Retail Value is $39.99 but buy it now for ONLY $29.99!  Make sure you hurry, THERE ARE ONLY A COUPLE OF THESE LEFT and this bundle is the ONLY way you can get that chicken wire background stamp.  It is not available for purchase separately.

Here is a card that I created using the Raisin Boat Chicken Coop stamp set, as well as the woodgrain and red cardstocks and card base from the Chicken Pack.
First up, I stamped the chicken image from Chicken Coop using Scrapbook.com black hybrid ink and colored it in with Artify alcohol markers.  I then die cut a circle in the awesome white woodgrain paper from the Chicken Pack and also from a piece of kraft cardstock.  I wanted it to look like you were looking in a circle doorway of a nesting box!
The sentiment is also from the Chicken Coop stamp set and was stamped in black ink on kraft paper.  I added some die cut eggs, popped up the sentiment strip with foam tape and added some burlap ribbon.  The finishing touches were inking the edges of the white papers with tan ink and using a black gel pen to make doodles.  The whole card front was matted with a red cardstock from the Chicken Pack for a pop of color.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Get Up with the Sun

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today! We are still in celebration mode - with the release of the Chicken Pack Bundle at SumMore Fun. It's been quite popular and it is LIMITED EDITION so if you're waiting, that might not be a good idea. Check it out sooner than soon - it just might sell out!


I had fun making another card with it. I used the Chicken Coop stamp set and the one of the designer papers in the Bundle.


I masked the chicken coop, using a post it note and then blended ink onto the white cardstock to create ground and the sun. After that it was simply coloring and layering to put it all together. The bag of chicken feed and the sentiment are both popped up off of the card with foam pieces.


I added three little Cloud 9 Rain Drops to look like feed spilling out of the bag.



Thanks again for stopping by the blog.
I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

*NEW RELEASE* Chicken Wire Card

Welcome to another SumMore Fun blog post with Beth from Beth's Beauties!  This time I am super excited about a new/re-release that we are having.  It is called the Chicken Pack and I absolutely love this fun set:

The Chicken Pack includes:
  • one background stamp (Chicken Wire)-It is sized so it covers more than an A2 card front.
  • two stamp sets (Chicken Coop and Chicken Soup)
  • four sheets of 6x6" woodgrain cardstock
  • six red A2 envelopes
  • six white A2 card bases
  • six pieces of red A2 size cardstock

Retail Value is $39.99 but buy it now for ONLY $29.99!  Make sure you hurry, because supplies are limited and this bundle is the ONLY way you can get that chicken wire background stamp.  It is not available for purchase separately.

Here is a card that uses all three of the stamp sets available in the Chicken Pack (RB Chicken Wire, RB Chicken Soup (image), and RB Chicken Coop (sentiment).
Using a stamp platform, the chicken wire background was inked with Charcoal ink from Scrapbook.com, then inked on top of that with VersaMark so I could emboss with clear powder.  I ink blended with SB.com Leather ink around the outside of the background as well.  The nest was stamped in SB.com black hybrid ink and colored with Artify Markers.  The circles were all die cut using GMD X-stitched circle dies.  The sentiment was also stamped in black ink.  The embellishments include Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine and GMD Mai Tai enamel dots.
If you loved the chicken theme of this card, stay tuned because there will be many more shared in the near future using items from the SumMore Fun Chicken Pack!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Monochromatic Eagle Card and SNEAK PEEK!

Happy Sunday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  This time, I created a masculine birthday card with some of SumMore Fun's red rubber AND photopolymer stamps.
SumMore Fun is in the process of retiring all of their red rubber stamps, but I have several of them that I love and just had to share this technique with you.  Even though the nature stamps I used on this card are not available for purchase, you could easily re-create this card using pine trees from the Winter Heart and Sole or Merry Nature photopolymer sets.  Any wildlife stamp could replace the eagle such as the Got Game? photopolymer set.  To make this card, I simply used monochromatic inks from Scrapbook.com, starting with the lightest in the back and darkest in the front.  The ink colors I used include: Sugar Cookie, Camel. Leather, and Dark Chocolate.  The eagle was stamped on a different paper and cut out with my Scan N Cut and popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment was from the Raisin Boat Varsity Locker stamp set.  I added patterned paper and matted the panels with dk brown cardstock to stick with the monochromatic theme.  I recommend using a stamp platform with this technique so you can get the exact placement you want with all of your stamps.
Now for some EGG-citing news!! SumMore Fun will be having a RE-RELEASE of some awesome stamp sets on July 18th!  I had never seen these sets before, so they were new to me, and I absolutely fell in LOVE with them.  Here is a sneak peek of one of my cards that will be shared later.  Stay tuned for more news on this release as well as awesome inspiration from the DT!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Crocus Cravings Birthday and a Peek at What's to Come

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

I have a birthday card to share with you today and also a SURPRISE! No, it's not a surprise birthday party. It's a SNEAK PEEK of what's to come.

But first, my card.


I used the SumMore Fun Crocus Craving stamp set to make this card. I stamped directly onto designer paper and then colored the image with Faber-Castell Polychromo Colored Pencils.


The coloring is soft and subtle, which I think goes well with the lovely flower.


Now, about that Sneak Peek I mentioned. There's going to be a super cute NEW RELEASE at SumMore Fun next week and the design team has been having a lot of fun getting ready for it.

Take a look...


How fun is that!?!?!

I know you're going to want to check back to see some more SNEAK PEEKs this week... and then to see the bundle (*gasp! Did I say Bundle???) that will be released next week.


Thanks again for stopping by the blog.

I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

Panda Birthday Card

Hello everyone!  Don't you just love it when your kids craft with you?  Beth from Beth's Beauties here, and today I am turning my blog post over to my son, Levi, to let you know what he did to make this birthday card for his brother.
First I stamped a panda from What a Zoo, Too! using black ink. Second, I put black cardstock behind it, and added an action wobble. I wanted a fun background to go with pandas, so I chose green cardstock and embossed it with a zig zag embossing folder.
I added two stripes of washi tape to the green background.  Finally, I used a Silhouette Cameo and cut the 8 and Connor out and glued them to the paper.  Now, it is ready to give to him on his birthday!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
