Moose 80th Birthday Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The 5x7" card I am sharing with you uses Victorine Originals' Moose stamp, Grove of Trees stamp and All Occasion stamp set.
I created the focal point panel by stamping the Grove of Trees stamp on the left in green and the Moose stamp in brown and colored that in with colored pencils.  I stamped a second Grove of Trees stamp on scrap paper and cut it out with by Brother Scan N Cut 2 to place over the back part of the moose.  That panel was cut out with a wonky stitched rectangle die, then inked around with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.  I die cut and layered 3 of the black 80's and added the sentiment from the All Occasion stamp set coming from behind the 0.
Patterned papers are from TPS Lewis Family Vacation paper pad.  I die cut the right side with a GMD Pine Bough Border die.  Adhesives used include ATG, Lineco Adhesive, and foam tape.  I embellished with jute ribbon and metal circles.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Go Wild!

Good morning, Sharon here from Mollie Moo's Crafty Place taking over the blog today.
I'm going a little wild today - well I would be if the raccoons hadn't over eaten:

The cheeky chappies have raided a bin and are now in a food coma!!
I used the Raccoons stamp and colored them with Copic markers on white card stock. I then matted a white card base with kraft card and some spotted design paper. I used the 'go wild' and 'Happy Birthday' sentiments from the Happy Camper stamp set around my image and then matted it with kraft card before placing it at an angle on my card. I added a few enamel dots just to balance the design.
Here's a closer look at the trash bandits:

Aren't they just adorable?

Pretty paper...

Do you ever get those ideas in your head, then find yourself halfway through the project asking WHAT WAS I THINKING? That was most definitely this project - but I'm so happy I stuck it out as I LOVE the finished project!

I made this beautiful card first, and absolutely loved it. So, I thought to myself, that would make a beautiful background for a page in my sister's wedding album - recreate it! I think I forgot how much work it would be...

For both backgrounds, I started with a white cardstock base and then had fun with my distress oxide inks. I smooshed them on my craft mat, spritzed with water and then smooshed them on my paper in different directions/places/etc.

Once I was happy with my colors and the paper was dry, I got out the beautiful Raisin Boat All in Toile stamp. Seriously, isn't it gorgeous!

I'm a huge fan of purple, so that's the color I went with. I used my purple ink, and then embossed each flower. For the scrapbook page, using my stamp positioning tool made this SO MUCH EASIER! I designed a section, and then repeated it multiple times, just by moving my paper around. Truth be told, I kind of forgot how long it would take to emboss all this! That stamp embossed looks so cool!

To finish off my card, I added a sentiment from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp, some coordinating fiber and nuvo drops.

To finish off my scrapbook page, I added some fiber and some metal embellishments.

Butterfly Birthday...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!

Today I thought I would share a Butterfly Birthday -

I made myself another rainbow card! Since I already
had the items out from the last rainbow card I made
I thought I could make a second one at the same time!

*** To see my Other Rainbow Card (CLICK HERE) ***

So I used a scrap piece of Canson Watercolor paper
and some of my Distress Oxides  
- All I did was blend an assortment of Distress Oxides
onto the watercolor paper then added a few drops of
water here & there and then dried it with my heat tool.

I also took a strip of black & white Designer Paper
from Doodlebug and layered the 2 pieces
onto my 110lb. Recollections White Cardbase

I already had the butterflies completed when I
made my last Rainbow card - I used the 
Beautiful Raisin Boat Stamp set called (IMAGINE)
I just Popped them up on my card with some
Dimensional Foam Dots...

The Happy Birthday Sentiment is a Victorine
Originals Stamp and I really like how it
fills out the bottom portion of my card!

I then added some pretty Ice cube Jewels 
to complete the design... and now it's ready to be
used for someone's birthday!!!

I also wanted to share the inside of my card with you -
I like having the insides completed at the same time as
the outside - This way it's ready to go when I need it!

I'm using another Victorine Originals Sentiment -
This one is called (Very best of birthdays)
and I just cut a strip of the rainbow paper I made
just to tie it all together!!!

Woman's Face

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamps:

Woman's Face

For todays post I wanted to share a truly versatile stamp with you. Woman's Face can be stamped on pretty much any paper, Patterned or plain and the results are always perfect.

Card Recipe:
I stamped the Woman's Face on a piece of Distress ink smooshed watercolor paper from my stash using Memento Dew Drops in Tuxedo Black and then applied some some flicks of black watercolor paint over the surface of both the base of the card and the stamped panel. The sentiment is from my stash and was stamped on a piece of velum then I applied a thin layer of white paint to the backside to take away some of the translucent properties of the velum.

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I used Tombow Extreme to affix the stamped Woman's Face layer to the A2 sized side folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock that I previously flicked the black on. The sentiment was then applied over a nest of silver thread using Tombow Extreme

Proud of you

Proud of you!!!

Good Morning crafty friends.
Its my day to take over the blog.
Im sharing a
Card I made using Raisin Boat's
 Strokes of Pride stamp set.

This card is for my son. He is Graduating 6th grade this year.
Growing up way to fast, that's for sure!!!
I started out using heavy card stock. I stamped my images using the Tim Holtz stamp platform to align them the way I wanted.
This stamps set is great for using the different words for a quote and perfect to tell my son how PROUD I am of him.
Using Distress ink, I blended around the edges to add a distress look and add some design around the words.
I added layers of different colored paper to make it all come together.

Welcome Baby

Hello everyone,
Heather here and it is my day to take over the blog and I also have baby on the brain as my husband and I are going to be grandparents! So I pulled out this adorable set from Raisin Boat Stamps, "Onesie, Twosie" (10038) and got to work.

I started with an A2 card base in the color Lettuce going for a gender neutral card and with a pencil I lightly drew a grid towards the top of the card. I then took the adorable and wonky picture frame stamp from the set and stamped it in black ink four times, rotating the stamp a quarter turn each time.  I then used the puppy, stick horse, ducky and lion and stamped them each into their own frame. When that was done I erased my grid pencil lines for a clean look.  At the bottom of the card I stamped the "Welcome Baby" from a stamp set in my stash in black ink towards the bottom right portion of the card base.  I liked the look I got from doing just this, but for this card I lightly colored in each image using colored pencils and added some glitter to the top with my Nuvo Clear Glitter Pen.  I colored each of the frames in a light grey with the pencils as well. I think this card would make great baby shower invites or be good at a gender reveal or even as a baby shower gift card, and it would be so easy and quick to mass produce.  Another added bonus is it is a one layer card, so postage costs if mailing would be reasonable.
I hope you have enjoyed my card today, hope you have a great day and please join in on our current challenge, I will link below to the mood board below.
See you all soon!

Happy Friday, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a card with a great message, Remember. I'm pulling out my go-to words, quick and simple, with this card. Maybe I should make that my motto. I did make this in a hurry yesterday. I've been battling a serious cold for two weeks and yesterday was the first day back in the craft room. My husband joked, you haven't been on your laptop but a few times, you are sick! I should have said REMEMBER who cooks your food, buddy! LOL Anyway, I think I'm on the downside of this mess and so glad. 

Using the Strokes of Pride Stamp Set  stamp the "streak" using red ink on white cardstock. Stamp the star on heat resistant acetate using versamark ink and blue embossing powder. Tip: Always remember to use anti static powder when using embossing powder and pre-heat your heat gun. Heat set the powder. Stamp sentiment using gray ink on white cardstock, add 3D mounting foam to the back of sentiment and decided placement on card then adhere to acetate. Flip the acetate over and add another piece of 3D mounting foam to the backside of acetate hiding it behind the sentiment, adhere to stamped card panel. Add enamel dots randomly on acetate adding 3D mounting on the backside of the acetate, hiding it behind the enamel dots and adhere to stamped panel. Center on a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. 

Stamp the sentiment "this nation..." inside of card.

This is a wonderful patriotic stamp set!

Tractor in Field Birthday Cards

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing with you uses Raisin Boat's Homegrown stamp set.  I thought these would be great to send to family for their birthdays!
First, I created a panel with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.  I then used Lucky Clover DO ink to stamp the corn stalks with my stamp platform.  The front row of stalks were stamped first, then I did second generation stamping for the back row of corn stalks.  The sentiment is from Raisin Boat's Happy Camper stamp set.  I then stamped the tractor from the Homegrown stamp set, colored it with colored pencils, and cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut 2.
To assemble, I used the following adhesives:  ATG, Lineco Adhesive, and foam tape.  I embellished the cards with ribbon and black Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
