SumMore Fun Mood Board Challenge #37

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 colors in the mood board again to create my card - 
FALL Colors are my FAVORITE!!! EEK! I totally LOVE
how this card turned out - 

I colored my Background with some Distress Oxides - Peeled Paint,
Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon,
Barn Door, & Aged Mahogany

Once Everything was blended and dried, I Stamped my Birch Tree
with versamark ink then poured fine gold embossing powder over it
then heat set it - I wanted a bold gold look so I repeated this process
one more time - Then I added some water droplets and placed
a towel over it to pick up some of the colors - 
Then I used my favorite Stitched Rectangle die and cut it 

down to size - 



I wanted my background to shine - so I grabbed a piece
of vellum and stamped the sentiment on it with some
versamark ink and then poured ultra fine gold embossing
powder over it and heat set it - I die cut it out with a
long stitched rectangle die, then attached it from the
backside - I then placed it on a piece of tan fun foam

Then I took a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of cream cardstock and
placed scor tape around the edge to make a frame with adhesive
and then I grabbed some Rose Gold Foil and laid it on top of
the adhesive and rubbed it in - once I thought it was
rubbed in enough, I pulled the foil off to give it a nice
Rose gold layer under my card front image -
I then adhered it to a Dark Espresso Card base -

Silver & Gold...

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


 I thought I would share a lovely Christmas card -






As most of you know... next to Fall, Christmas is my other FAVORITE
time of the year - I love how they both just flow into each other -
Makes me Very HAPPY!!! So today I thought I would try to
inspire you to get started making those holiday cards!

Look... mine are all done for this year - YES I'm a nut case...
BUT, when you think about ALL the other things you're trying to do
during the holidays, wouldn't it be nice to have your handmade
cards off that list? Early? even better! Just sayin' (Wink Wink)

This card was fairly easy to make - I started off with a 
piece of White Cardstock (Neenah Solar White)
and I stamped my Ornament image front and center with
Brilliance Starlite Silver ink, then poured some
Ultra Fine Silver Embossing on top of it, then heat set it

I then took a pair of my Tim Holtz scissors and cut the center
out of my ornament - Since I had plans on turning this into
a shaker I wanted my sentiment on my card front
before I did anything else - So I did the same process
as the ornament - once that was done -
I grabbed a Wonky Stitch die and die cut my white
card front for that finished look - 

Now I can complete my shaker - I found some pretty Christmas
paper in my stash that had silver & gold to it (Perfect)
and I grabbed a piece of Acetate and now I'm ready to
get the shaker part together - I adhered the acetate to the backside
of the white card front - then added Stampin' Up Dimensional
Stripes around the circle - Added an assortment of Silver
& Gold Sequins then added the Designer paper to seal it off

Flipped it over and started to shake, shake, shake! (Always so fun)

I then added some Fun Foam to the backside of my shaker
for an even look and dimension - Then I folded a White card base
in half (A2 Size) - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Top Folding
Then I found a lovely piece of foil silver on white designer Paper
and thought that would look nice behind my shaker
so I cut it down to fit the front of my White Card base
and attached it with some adhesive 

Then I grabbed the shaker that was on the fun foam
and attached it to my silver/white card base

Of course, it needed some final touches, so I adhered
some of the silver & gold sequins to the front of my card
and then made a double bow using some
Silver & Gold Elastic Cording I had -

And now another Holiday card ready to go in the mail!!!

Winter Bird....

Hello and Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!
I haven't shared a Holiday card in a while so
I thought I would post one today -

This was a super quick 5-minute card (LOVE THOSE)
The Designer Paper did ALL the work for me - 



The Designer Paper was a Large scrap in my Stash and
while looking at it, I realized I could make this a quick easy
Christmas Card - So I took out my Favorite
Stitched Rectangle Dies from (MCT) and cut out the section
I wanted for my card front -

Then I stamped my sentiment from (Scrappy Moms) No longer in Business
After that was complete, I backed my card front with a
piece of Fun Foam for Dimension and adhered it to
my Blue Card Base - 




I added some Bling to dress up my card and I used
my Sakura Clear Glaze Gel pen on the Birds Wing, Beak & Eye.

Super Easy to complete!


Thanks for stopping by!
Have a FABULOUS DAY!!
