Be You!!

Be You!!

Good Morning crafty friends.
I am up on the SumMoreFun blog
today to share a
Card I made using Victorine Originals Double take Butterfly stamp and a stamp from Raisin boats Imagine set.



I started out by stamping the shaded Butterfly part first in one color and then stamped the outline over the top in a different color.
I use Distress Oxide inks to stamp and then used them to distress all around my paper.
By doing this I am able to play around with my backgrounds and distressing to create something unusual and fun.
I stamped the Be You sentiment amd used my Fiskars 1/4 in. Circle punch to punch it perfectly.
I also added another butterfly using my Fiskars butterfly punch and distressing it with the inks and outlining it using glitter gel pens.


Thats it for me today.

Best Wishes SumMoreFun Mood Board Challenge 31

Best Wishes!!!

SumMoreFun
Mood Board
Challenge #31

A New challenge is up on the
 SumMoreFun blog today.

Here is our Mood Board




Here is my project to inspire you.
Using Victorine Originals' Cake stamp and Best Wishes Stamp.



I started out by stamping the Cake image many times to decide what color I wanted to use.
I even embossed it and nothing seemed to be what I was going for  until I stamped it in a multi color.
I wasn't looking to go for just a traditional Wedding card.
I wanted something different.
So I then Die cut around my image with a cute but fancy border.
I then stamped using the Best Wishes stamp.
Note: I only used the Best Wishes part of the stamp.
The complete saying is Best Wishes on your Wedding day.
I then used my Fiskars border punch and punched hearts on opposite sides.
I attached them both to a black background to make them pop.

Now its your turn.... Join in the fun!!!
I hope to see your creations soon.

Fish and Gears

Fish and Gears!!

Good Morning crafty friends.
I am up on the SumMoreFun blog
today to share a
Masculine card using Victorine Originals Bass stamp with you all.


I know alot of people have problems creating masculine cards, so I wanted to create something to hopefully inspire those.
I started out with a paper from Prima.
It was tan with splotches of white.
This gave me my base to go from.
I added the dots using oxide inks and a stencil.
I distressed the edges with black oxide ink.
And brushed a little throughout.
Taking a torn peice of cardboard I distressed it as well.
Attached it to my base and added my black peice which is a cut up onion bag, but looks like a net.
I then stamped my fish image.
Fuzzy cut it out and colored it in gel pens to highlight it.
I also added a few metal gears and a crab.

Fathers day SumMoreFun Mood Board Challenge 30

Fathers day!!!

SumMoreFun
Mood Board
Challenge # 30

A New challenge is up on the
 SumMoreFun blog today.

Here is our Mood Board



Here is my project to inspire you.



Father's day is drawing near and it is really hard for me this year.
My dad passed away last year, Just after Father's day.
This year, since I do have someone in my life special to me and special to my son  A man that stepped up and took on that responsibility when he didnt have to, I still decided to go ahead and make something.  But I did a little something different.
No cards... I just can't yet.
But an album cover to add too as I chose.

Using Victorine Originals- Text Background.

I started out with Prima Paper. The design was a perfect fit. Although I did alter it some with my own touch.
I ripped a page from an old book and distressed the edges.
I stamped my image twice on two different colored papers.
This stamp has an outline around that I actually trimmed away as I felt it was holding everything inside the box.
As I'm an outside the box thinker, I think I have an OCD about things being kept Inside the lines or box.
It really puts a block on things flowing...
Mentally and visually.

I added some metal pieces from my stash that looked older since that was the look I was going for.
Adding some cardboard peices for texture and some more distressing along the way.
I also added some word stickers to bring it all together.



And a closer look

Good Morning crafty friends.
I am up on the SumMoreFun blog
today to share a
Thinking of you card I made using Raisin Boat's "Oops a daisy" stamp set.


As you can tell I've been playing around with my Distress Oxide inks again.

I then blended black all around the edges.
I chose a few colorful papers to layer it.
I stamped the Thinking of you sentiment and attached it using 3D foam tabs.

Proud of you!!!

Proud of you!!!

Good Morning crafty friends.
I am up on the SumMoreFun blog
today to share a
Card I made using Raisin Boat's
Strokes of Pride stamp set.


This card is for my son. He is Graduating 6th grade this year.
Growing up way to fast, that's for sure!!!
I started out using heavy card stock. I stamped my images using the Tim Holtz stamp platform to align them the way I wanted.
This stamps set is great for using the different words for a quote and perfect to tell my son how PROUD I am of him.
Using Distress oxides ink, I blended around the edges to add a distress look and add some design around the words.
I added layers of different colored paper to make it all come together.
