SumMore Fun Mood Board Challenge #31

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

 YAY! I know how you
guys enjoy a good Challenge!

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 --




As you can tell... I went with the Color combo & flowers
The sentiment I'm using could work for a Wedding Or Birthday Card -
I plan to use it for a Birthday card of course (I always need those)

The Stamp set I chose for my card is the
Cherry Blossom (10149-z) Stamp set from Raisin Boat
I'm also using an Assortment of Memento Dew Drop Inks
That Sabrina carries in her store - I hadn't realized how
vibrant these inks were and now I love using them
I'm using - Summer Sky, Rich Cocoa, Lilac Posies, Bamboo Leaves
and Desert Sand


My sentiment stamp is from the Flourishing Thoughts (10271-z) Stamp Set 
Which I LOVE to use ALL the time!!! So many beautiful Sentiments
in this set keep me picking it up time & time again!


  


The (Celebrate) Word Die is cut out
4x's for added Dimension and I used my
Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz on the Word and
the background - It really Sparkles in person!

Since I really wanted my floral background to shine
I used a piece of Vellum and folded it behind the white
Cardstock and adhered those 2 pieces together
Then I added a Piece of Fun Foam to that and attached
it to my Dark Espresso card base

I added some Ice Cube Jewels from Lucy's Cards
to tie everything together and now it's ready to
be mailed off!!!


Just a reminder that if you play along, the Random
winner wins a $20 Gift Certificate to the 
SumMore Fun Stamps Store AND if you use a
SumMore Fun Stamp on your project 
 you'll get a $40 Gift Certificate!!
This is such a wonderful prize!!


I hope you guys can join us --
 I would LOVE to see what you create!

National Anthem....

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


Today I thought I would share a Red, White, & Blue Card-




With the fourth of July coming up I felt the need
to create some Patriotic cards that I will mail
off to some of my friends!

I'm using the TOTALLY AWESOME
from Victorine Originals!! I gotta say this was
so easy to use and I LOVE how my background turned out!!

I used my Distress oxide inks in Candied Apple & Salty Ocean
Then I grabbed my Picket Fence Distress ink and stamped
the center in the white ink - It looked like it might fade out
so I pulled out some White embossing powder and poured
it over the center, part and heat embossed it

It totally made a huge difference and looks great between
the Red & Blue Words ...
As you can tell I did all of that on some Kraft Cardstock
And since it looks so nice, I didn't want to
take away from it too much --

So I decided to use a piece of Vellum and stamp
U.S.A. & an Eagle from the Strokes of Pride Raisin Boat
Stamp set. I used some Ultra Fine Black Embossing
powder on that part and I think it turned out nice...

 I felt my card needed a little something Extra --
So I die cut 2 Medium sized stars in Blue & Red and then 
2 tiny Stars in Silver then I adhered them
in the areas were the vellum was.



-- Just a closer look at my card and the Stamp Sets I used --

Fun Kitchen Sign!

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your weekend? Mine was busy
crafting! Lots to do, lots to do! It was way too hot outside... 
So crafting seemed like the better choice! LOL

I made a super FUN Kitchen sign for myself and
I made one as a gift for my niece -




I saw the sign on Pinterest and could NOT
stop laughing - So I had to make one for myself!

I used my Silhouette Program to make my sign
I found the pan on google as a free image 
I can't remember the fonts I used, but they probably came
from the Silhouette store along with those utensil images.

I painted a wooden frame with White Chalk paint,
then painted over that with some Red Chalk paint
Then I sanded it down some to give it a Distressed look

I'm using White vinyl from Expression Vinyl on my sign
and I found some older Stampin' Up Ribbon to attach
for hanging my sign.




This is the one I made for my Niece - 
She likes the colors White, Blue, & Maroon - 
So I made sure to incorporate all 3 colors on hers!

I also decided to add some smoke... HAHAHA
I found the smoke image in one of my coffee files and 
shrunk it down to fit her sign... I really like the added Smoke!

I attached a dark blue/white stripe ribbon to hers for hanging in her Kitchen!
She LOVED her sign and had it hanging up the same day I gave it to her!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a FABULOUS DAY!!!
