Doggone It!

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

Today's card makes me think of my school days - when the kid (you know who he/she was) would ALWAYS have an excuse... "Teacher, my dog ate my homework." She didn't believe the excuse, of course. Would you?

Now, I'm going to do something quite unusual. I'm going to show you the inside of my card first so that you'll understand why this card makes me thing of good old school days.



I'm sorry! 
My dog ate your birthday present!


Or rather... I should say DOGGONE IT!




This is such a fun stamp set!!!


Oh, the possibilities!



I hope you have SumMore Fun today:

Root Beer Float Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Crunch Time stamp set.  I made it for my brother in law's birthday, which happens to be today.
I started out by stamping the image and sentiment onto white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossing it with black powder.  I die cut the rectangle with a wonky stitched rectangle die and proceeded to watercolor the image with Distress Oxide inks.  I used the following colors:  Vintage Photo, Candied Apple, and Pumice Stone.  I embellished the frothy areas of the image with a snow marker.  Other elements used on this card include plaid paper from DCWV's Luxe Lodge stack, ribbon, and brads.
I also wanted to show you the inside sentiments I added to the card.  I am a person who keeps the inside of a card simple, so there is no extra decoration there, just the fun stamps from the Raisin Boat Crunch Time stamp set!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

A Robot Birthday

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

Do you ever need a birthday card for a child? If so, I'd recommend checking out the Raisin Boat Robo Party stamp set - and good news! It's on sale! You can find it in the SumMore Fun online store - HERE.

There are so many fun images in this set; I had a difficult time choosing which one/s to use on my card for today. I ended up choosing just two, plus a sentiment, but I can assure you I will be using this stamp set again soon.


I actually stamped the balloon right on top of the robot image, making it look like just one image.

Lily Sympathy Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat In Loving Memory stamp set from SumMore Fun.
I started out by stamping the single lily from the In Loving Memory stamp set onto white cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossing it with regular white embossing powder.  I then ran it through a laminator with a gold foil sheet to get the beautiful foiled image.  For extra color, I used Dusty Concord Distress Oxide ink, smeared it on my craft mat, spritzed it with water, then dabbed my stamped image into the ink.  I just LOVE how the oxidation created different colors!  I used a GMD pleated square die to cut around the flower and popped it up with foam tape.
All of the patterned papers are from DCWV's Lilac Love stack.  I stamped a sentiment from the In Loving Memory stamp set using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  Lastly, I added a few dots of gold Pearl pen!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Farmers Make Such a Difference

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

I live in the middle of farm country which has given me a first-hand view of the difficulties farmers have experienced this year, at least in our area. The weather has not been kind to them - flooding out crops or flooding even before the crops were planted.

Since they've been on my mind, I decided to use two Raisin Boat stamp sets (Homegrown and Flourishing Thoughts) to make a card to send to a good friend who is a farmer.

And here's a tip - when you go to the Victorine Originals (SumMore Fun) online store, be sure to check out the pricing options before you place the set in the shopping cart. Many of the stamp sets have a temporary liquidation price and/or a used price, either of which will save you some money.

But I digress. Here is my card...


I normally color with Copic markers, but for this card I chose to use my Prisma Watercolor Pencils instead. 



The sentiments (the front and the inside) are both from the Flourishing Thoughts stamp set.

Speaking of the inside of my card, here it is...

Foiled Floral Cards

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The cards I am sharing with you use the Victorine Originals Floral and Sayings stamp set.
On these cards, I tried my hand at foiling for the first time!  I love the shiny metallic finish it gives, but it is hard to capture that in photos.  For this anniversary card, I stamped the floral bouquet from the Floral and Sayings stamp set onto white paper using VersaMark ink and heat embossed with regular white embossing powder.  I always use my stamp platform when embossing!  I then ran the stamped paper with a piece of foil (shiny side up) through my laminator (no carrier sheet).  When the paper was cool, I peeled off the foil to reveal the image!
I used various oval dies to cut around the floral design and added a Happy Anniversary sticker to the center.  I embellished with Pearl Pen dots in Gold and Ice White and white seam binding ribbon.
For my second card, I followed the same foiling process except I used an ultrafine embossing powder and it gave a more bold foiled image.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Floral and Sayings stamp set in black.  I added a double bow of Pink Midnight Trendy Twine in the bottom right corner.
See that metallic shine?!  It definitely makes an eye-catching card!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Music Rocks My World

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

Today's post might be a bit noisy - since it's featuring an amazing drum set. 



Just look at the amazing detail on the drum set:



The stamps that I used on this card are from the Raisin Boat Rock Star stamp set. I am certain I'll be using this stamp set again and again.

Happy Father's Day Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Victorine Originals Large Happy Father's Day red rubber stamp.  It can also be purchased as part of the To My Parents set, which is on clearance right now!
I started out by prepping the background using watercolor paper and Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, and Vintage Photo.  I had a large acrylic block that I smeared the inks on, spritzed it with water, then turned the block over onto the watercolor paper.  I added weight onto the block and let it set for 5 minutes, then removed the block.  When it was dry, I flicked some white acrylic paint onto the background then heat set the whole paper.  I stamped the Happy Father's Day stamp using VersaFine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder.  I always use a stamp platform with watercolor paper due to the texture of it making it hard to get a complete stamped image the first time.  I added white gel pen accents to the word "father's" and a few silver Pearl Pen dots to finish it off.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Giddy Up!

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

I'm really excited about today's post because it's the first time I've used the Raisin Boat Giddy Up! stamp set, which I absolutely love.





Isn't that horse a beauty?!?!?



The set also includes a cowboy hat and some other sentiments, too.







I kept the designs simple and the embellishments few. After all, with a gorgeous horse, what more can a girl want, right?
