Love Is the Key to Happiness

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. I hope you check out the blog regularly. Typically Beth posts on Wednesdays and I post on Sundays and occasionally there's a post or two in-between those days.

Did you see Beth's beautiful card this Wednesday? She used the Victorine Originals Butterfly stamp set and mentioned that anyone who purchases $50 or more in the SumMore Fun store in September will receive the Butterfly stamp set for free. That is an amazing deal! Check out the details - HERE.

I've use the same set for my card today. Are we tempting you? I sure hope so. 



I love the Oliver Wendell Holmes quote!




I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

Subtle Butterfly Card

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here, and today I am sharing a card that features the FREE Victorine Originals Butterfly stamp set that you get from SumMore Fun with every order over $50! Through the month of September, all orders that the subtotal is over $50.00 get the cling mounted red rubber Butterfly Set included for free!  Without further ado, here is my card:
I used two stamps from the Butterfly Set on this card.  The sentiment stamped on the black and white floral paper was stamped with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide for a subtle look.  That green matched the patterned paper so well!  I also stamped the butterfly with VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto a pink patterned paper and fussy cut around the butterfly.
Before adhering the butterfly, I used my bone folder to curl the wings, then only glued the body portion to the card for a 3D effect.  All the patterned papers are from DCWV's Romantic Life stack.  I embellished with Posy Trendy Twine and silver rhinestones.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

A Delightful Halloween Night

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. It's September, which means fall is coming, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. I love fall! The crisp temperatures. The fall decorations. Soup bubbling on the stove. 

And of course there are also witches and ghosts and mummies, and more, like these...




Boo! 

I used the adorable witch - she's too cute to be spooky - for today's card.





I used one of the stamps from the set on the inside of my card, too.



I hope you have SumMore Fun today!

Poppin' By To Say Hi

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with this fun popcorn card.  The stamp set used on it is Raisin Boat's Crunch Time.
I stamped all the stamps on white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink using a stamp platform, then watercolored them with Distress Oxide Inks.  The specific colors I used were Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Pumice Stone, and Aged Mahogany.  I added a piece of patterned paper to resemble a tablecloth beneath the popcorn bowl and layered black and yellow cardstock beneath the stamped layer.  The finishing touch was three yellow enamel dots beneath the sentiment.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

I Thought of You Today

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

For today's card, I used the Victorine Originals Flourish Sentiments stamp set - and it's on liquidation markdown right now, so it can be yours for a VERY reasonable price. Check it out HERE.




The Rub-On detail in the bottom left corner doesn't show up well - it blends in too much - but here's a closeup to show that detail. I also added one of the rhinestones to the center of the flower.







Here's the inside of the card 
with another stamp from the same stamp set:

Big Day Locker Card

Hello and happy Wednesday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties back with another card.  Once again, it is school themed and it would work great for sporting events, pep rallies, and so many more occasions!  All stamps used on it are from the Raisin Boat Varsity Locker stamp set.  Isn't that locker stamp so awesome?  P.S.  Right now you can get that stamp set for as little as $4.99 which is a STEAL, so grab it now!
Now on to the details of my card...  I used my stamp platform for all the stamping so it would end up just where I wanted it.  The locker was stamped in Candied Apple Distress Oxide onto white cardstock.  Sentiments were all stamped in black and the marker board was stamped in Blueprint Sketch D.O.
The flags were fun to do!  I stamped them onto the white cardstock in Pumice Stone D.O., then stamped them in black on various patterned papers and fussy cut those out and adhered them to the card.  Didn't that patterned paper add a lot to the card?  The final touch was a few black Pearl Pen dots.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Giddy Up Birthday Wishes

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

For today's card, I used two Raisin Boat stamp sets - Giddy Up and No Limits. Both of these sets are currently marked down (WOW! The prices are unbelievable, in fact!) so be sure to go to the store and check them out.


In the past I've always chosen to color the horse image, but this time I stamped it onto Soft Suede cardstock and left it uncolored for a different look. Not only does it look good this way, it is also super fast/easy to make a card when there's no coloring involved.

School Shoes Card

Good morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today sharing another back to school card.  I used Victorine Originals Back To School set to create it.  The single Back to School stamp is also available.  In addition to that, I also used the Raisin Boat Highly Confidential stamp set which is on a HUGE clearance right now!
This card was pretty quick to make, using DCWV's Grade School stack as the focal point (love those shoes!).  I die cut the blue background layer with a scalloped rectangle die and stamped the Back to School stamp in red.  After adhering the shoe layer of paper, I used black in to stamp the date and paperclip from the Highly Confidential stamp set.  A few dots of red Pearl Pen and it was complete!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. School started in our area this past Friday. That means it's time for some football!


The images are from the Raisin Boat First Down stamp set.
The sentiment is from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set.

Back to School Card

Good morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here.  A new school year is upon us, so that is the theme for the card I am sharing today.  I used Victorine Originals Back To School set to create it.  That stamp set is available in red rubber OR digital stamp format.
This card is 5"x7", which is larger than the A2 size I typically make.  I started with a white panel of cardstock and stamped the sentiment in black, then the school supplies with different colors of Distress Oxide inks.  I used Black Soot Distress Oxide to blend the edges of the white cardstock, then added the ribbon and enamel dots.
I added several scrap pieces of cardstock onto the red card base to bring out the colors of the school supplies.  Once those were adhered, I added the white cardstock piece with ATG.  

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Unforgettable You

Hello - Jeanette here from the design team (and from Cre8tive Play). I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. Something you might not know about me - I'm rather fond of sunflowers. They are one of my favorite flowers (Tulips in the Spring, Rose Moss in the early Summer and Sunflowers in the late Summer). That means it's not surprising that Victorine Originals' Large Sunflower stamp is also one of my favorites. 

I used this stamp a number of weeks ago and it was a joy to color (you can see that card HERE), but this time I decided to do some paper piecing instead. I like to fussy cut... and I think it looks great on this sunflower.


For some other inspiration from the design team using this gorgeous stamp, check out the link - HERE. There are so many different ways to use this stamp, trust me, you're going to want to see them.


The sentiment on my card is from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set. It has so many GREAT sentiments on it and isn't that script gorgeous?

Teacup Hello Card

Hello all!  Welcome to another Wednesday.  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with this card.  I used two stamp sets on it called Sundri's High Tea, and Flourishing Thoughts.
I created the card base with lots of patterned papers from Crate Paper's Pretty Party 6x6 paper pad, then went into the stamping.  In the top corner, I used navy blue ink to stamp two single roses from Sundri's High Tea.  I then colored them in with white gel pen so they would pop a little more off of the paper.
The focal point of the card consists of a teacup I stamped from Sundri's High Tea in navy blue on a white paper, then fussy cut it and popped it up on the doily.  I wanted a sentiment on the card, so I die cut two small tags and stamped a rose in tan from Sundri's High Tea on the small one and the "Hello" sentiment from Flourishing Thoughts in navy blue on the larger tag.  I added Totally Navy Trendy Twine to the tags then adhered them to the card with ATG.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Birthday Greetings

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

I've used one of my favorite Victorine Originals stamp sets to make a simple Birthday Card. 



I wanted my card to be kind of classy, so I heat embossed the image and sentiment. The designer paper I used (it's a scrap so I don't know who the manufacturer is) is darker on one side so the only papers I used on my card are the one designer paper and white cardstock.


I could not figure out any embellishment that I thought enhanced the card so I decided to let the embossing of the gorgeous stamp set be enough. See, I told you it was a simple card - very simple.

Deer Scene Card

Good morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  I made this deer scene card to give to my dad for his birthday.  The stamps I used on it include the Raisin Boat Big Bucks stamp set and the Victorine Originals Grove of Trees stamp.
I started by making my background using Distress Oxides.  I blended Lucky Clover at the bottom and Broken China with a hand cut cloud mask to create the sky.  I then stamped the Grove of Trees stamp using my stamp platform two times using Pine Needles Distress Oxide.  I filled in some of the ground area with the grass stamp from the Big Bucks stamp set, once again with Pine Needles DO.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in black at the top of the background.  It also was from the Big Bucks stamp set.  The deer was from the same set and was stamped on a separate piece of paper in brown ink and I used my Brother Scan N Cut to fussy cut it.  Once I colored it with colored pencils, I glued it onto the card front.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
