SumMore Fun Mood Board Challenge #33

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
Today... starts another FUN Challenge over at: 


Our Mood Board is - 



 You can use the theme, pictures, or color combo
 You don't have to use
a stamp from SumMore Fun if you don't have one!


All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!


Here's what I created to inspire you --



I went with the Butterflies & some of the colors in the photo.

I heat embossed my Butterfly Heart with some Ultra
Fine White Embossing Powder on a piece of Tim Holtz
Watercolor paper. Then I took 3 Distress Oxide Inks in
Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, & Seedless Preserves
and blended them on a Clear block with some water -

 Then I laid it on top of my watercolor paper and let 

it sit for about 3 minutes (so I could get the vibrant colors.
I let it dry completely before running it thru my Gemini Machine
with the Rounded Corner Stitch Die. Then I grabbed the
Kindness Sentiment and a piece of Black Scrap CS.
and Heat Embossed that as well - I used my Lawn Fawn
Long Banner Die to cut it out -

I adhered everything together on a piece of White Cardstock

then added some Fun Foam to pop up
onto my Black square Card Base! For a finishing touch
I added some Ice Cube Jewels from Lucy's cards.

July Christmas Wishes...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Today's my day to take over the blog at:


 I thought I would share a Christmas in July Card -



I've added lots of Glitter to this card - 
The best part is  - None of it will fall off! YESSS!!

Don't ya just hate Glitter that falls off a card? I DO!!! 😋

I've got an assortment of Glitter Nuvo drops on my trees
and Glitter Washi Tape in Red & green between the candy cane Strips


I'm using the Polka Dotted Christmas Tree Stamp from Victorine Originals
I stamped it out 2x's in Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink and Fussy
Cut them out - Using Dimensionals to pop the one tree up
in front of the other one --
Then I stamped the Candy Cane Border from the
Christmas Borders Set (10508) in Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink
I laid my glitter washi tape down then cut down my white card front

I added the Christmas Wishes sentiment on the lower left side
  of my card front with some Momento Tuxedo Black Ink

Then I adhered a piece of fun foam behind my white card front and
then adhered it down to a Hunter Green Card Base -


Of course, I fancied up the inside as well! I added a couple
of strips of the glitter washi tape and
Stamp sentiment with some more Memento Black ink

The Designer Papers I went with came from my Wonderful
Crafting Friend LISA - A Mermaid's Crafts 

She sent me this BEAUTIFUL Christmas Paper called
Christmas cards by LemonCraft
You can find it in her Store HERE!!!


The card came together pretty easily with every cut & Layer -
I added some Sheer Sparkle Shimmer Spritz (cuz who doesn't
Like Sparkle at Christmas time?) 😁
I added a couple of Stitched Tags from Jaded Blossom (Mini Tags 2)
and the sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Inks (Mixed Messages) Set

Of course, I HAD to add a little Bling - Gems are from KasierKrafts
And I added some Pretty Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine


Of course, I'm gonna share the inside with you as well!!
As you can see the layering I did inside my card too and I added
another sentiment from My Craft Spot to complete
this card and add it to my ever-growing Christmas Card Stash!!!


For those that have been following me for awhile now

other projects the last couple of months - But Rest Assured I HAVE

Trendy Twine - Hawaiian Gift Set

Hello and Happy Monday Crafty Friends!
 I'm back again as the Guest Designer for Trendy Twine!

Today I'm sharing a gift set I made for
one of my boys who has a Birthday next week!



My son is in the Marines and he's stationed in Hawaii -
So this set is PERFECT for him since he loves the water
and loves to play guitar! 😀




My card front was really easy to put together since it was an "extra"
I had lying around in one of my craft stash bags - The Orange cardstock &
designer paper/scallop edge was already put together when I found it.

 The Surfer image was already colored too, it's from 
Your Next Stamp and I colored him with Copic Markers
along time ago. The designer papers for my Card front are
from SU and are really old. I decided to use a Stitched
rectangle die to trim it down then I  wrapped some
Orange Limeade Trendy Twine around the front.

I then wanted my Surfer Dude to stand out a little more so
I found a scrap piece of that DP and used a stitched
circle die to place behind him. I popped the circle up with dimensionals.

While looking at the Choose Happy Stamp set
I found the "Mahalo" Word and thought that was PERFECT
for my card! I stamped it on a Stitched banner die with
some Momento Black ink.
I adhered the Card front to a piece of Orange Fun Foam
then attached it to my White Card base!

I LOVE how it looks and My son will love it!


Now I was ready to work on my tag! I found a little more of
that DP in my scrap pile and added it to an already cut out orange 
tag I had in my Scrap bag! (nice way to use up those extras) we
all seem to have on hand! 😉

I wrapped a piece of Orange Limeade Trendy Twine
around my tag and added an orange stitched zig-zag border
piece (also found in my stash). Then stamped the CUTE Sentiment
stamps from the Choose Happy Set onto a 
stitched white circle piece I found as well...

I attached it all to my tag then found some blue stars 
I could also add - I really need to look at my
Scrap bag stashes more often! I have way too many
extra pieces lying around in my craft room! 😁

Then I wrapped more Orange Limeade Trendy Twine around the
Guitar top and attached the tag and made a double bow.


I thought you might like to see the guitar sucker I found
at my local 99¢ Store! It was the perfect match up to my card!
I've already mailed this set off to him - Hopefully, he'll
get it just in time for his Birthday!!!

Trendy Twine Turtle Treat Bag!

Hello and Happy Friday Crafty Friends!
Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations!!
 I'm back again as the Guest Designer for Trendy Twine!

I'm sharing a Super FUN Project today using the
Cotton Muslin BagOrange Limeade Trendy Twine,
and Choose Happy Stamp Set.



How CUTE is this??? OMGOSH! I love this
adorable bag!!! As soon as I got this bag I knew I 
wanted to add some Trendy Twine on it -

Now I don't sew (AT ALL) so, I decided to try some
Mod Podge on it - All I did was add a little layer
of Mod Podge to the lower portion of the bag
and cut strips of the Orange Limeade Twine and just
laid it down on top of it. I continued this process
until I was happy with how the twine looked on my bag!

I did put a piece of clear acetate on the inside of
my bag just in case the glue leaked through...
FYI - It didn't leak through at all!!!


After I let the glue/Twine dry on my bag I added a Triple Bow to it -
My bag is a little stiff from the Mod Podge, but that didn't bother me.
I was able to fill it up with Yummy Turtle candies without any problems!




So, once my bag was dried I decided it was time to stamp on it!
I grabbed the Turtle stamp from Jaded Blossom and some
Black Versafine ink. I laid it into my Misti and positioned
my stamp where I wanted it and stamped away!

The impression came out perfect too! This Cotton Muslin Bag
is AWESOME! I colored my image with my Zig Real
Brush Watercolor pens! That's Right! Watercolor pens!
I put the acetate piece back into my bag (just in case)
there was leaks - NOPE! NO LEAKS!


After I finished the turtle image, it was time to add my goodies inside
and then finish this cutie patootie off! So I grabbed a Tag die
and some Kraft & Green Cardstock. The sweet sentiment stamp is
from the Choose Happy Stamp set and it fit perfectly
on my tag! Then I wrapped some more Orange Limeade
Trendy Twine around the top and through my Tag, then
created a triple bow to top it all off!



I made this for another Co-worker who adores Turtles!
She Loved the image and the Yummy goodies inside the bag as well!!
