Face the Sun

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today! If you haven't been to the SumMore Fun store lately, you might want to check it out. The prices are great as the liquidation sale continues and supplies are limited.

For my card today I used the Large Sunflower stamp. Sunflowers are my favorite flower so of course I am glad to own this stamp.



I used a paper piecing technique to make the card, which works really well with the large image.




Thanks again for stopping by!

If you're interested in purchasing this GREAT stamp, you'll find it HERE.

I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

Ewe Are So Sweet!

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today!  Today's card was soooo much fun to make. I can hardly wait to tell you about it.

You're going to want some Acrylic Paint (any brand) and a plastic card (like a credit card) so you can try this. Oh... just wait!

I started by putting just a tiny little blob of Acrylic Paint on the edge of the plastic card and then smeared a swath of it across a piece of heavy weight white  cardstock... and just like that, I had a hillside on which to stamp the cute little sheep from the Raisin Boat Wild About Ewe, Honey! stamp set.


I added a sentiment from the same stamp set and a few bits of designer paper and heart-shaped brads and this super easy and fast card was finished.




Thanks again for stopping by!

A Simple Card

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). Thank you for stopping by the blog today! Let me warn you, though, today's blog post is not like most of the posts you'll find on this site. Normally, we focus on the amazing stamps from the SumMore Fun store (Victorine Originals and Raisin Boat) For good reason! The stamps are amazing! And fear not, today's card does have a stamped sentiment on it. However, today's card is extremely simple for a very good reason.

If you're like me, you've watched almost in horror as our world has been battered  by the current pandemic. It is frightening. So many people are suffering and not just those who have the COVID-19. The medical staff who again and again put themselves at risk. The truck drivers who keep working so shelves can be restocked, etc. The parents who are now becoming the main educators of their children. Those in nursing homes and care centers who are no longer allowed visitors.

It. is. heartbreaking.

Then in just the past two or three days I've heard of care centers that are asking for cards to be sent to the residents to help combat the loneliness. Yesterday, the Skilled Nursing wing at our small town hospital also made a request for cards. An encouraging word can mean a lot to those who are alone. So I got to work. I prepared 50 cards to donate - some I mailed to another state/facility and some I put in the hands of our local Skilled Nursing facility. i had a stash of cards, yes, but I also needed more. So I made simple cards - that I could put together quickly. I chose cheerful colors and simple words. My goal: make cards that will bring smiles to those who receive them.

I used a simple sentiment from the Raisin Boat No Loss for Words stamp set on my card.




It literally only took me 10 minutes to make it. There's nothing fancy about it at all. I wrote a "generic" note inside, after all, I don't know who will receive it. I then placed it in a clear envelope - that way the staff can see what they are giving to the patient. 

It was a small thing to do. But it was something I could do.

What will you do? What can we all do? Help one another. Look out for our neighbors. Be kind to those working so hard in the stores so we'll have what we need. Offer a kind word. 

Think of others and let them know we care.
