Sketch Challenge SumMoreFun



SumMoreFun
Sketch Challenge

A New challenge is up on the
 SumMoreFun blog today.

We have decided to switch things up.
We are now doing some different and fun challenges.

This challenge will be a sketch to follow.
See all rules and details on the SumMoreFun blog.

For this challenge we have decided to use a sketch:


Pretty simple right?
Well. Yeah.. But for some that dont normally do sketches it can be a little tough.
I'm not a sketch person.
But was still able to come up with a little something

Here is my project to inspire you.



I started out using the New Crocus Craving set from the New Release.
I stamped my image and colored it using my gel pens.
I then used my circle punch to punch around the flower.
I also added some purple around it to make it pop from the white behind it.
I chose my papers. Which are a pretty pale and actually from a Christmas collection.
After deciding which colors go where everything fell into place.
Cutting my papers down to match the sketch.
I decided to use the sentiment with sympathy.
I think my mind knew I needed one of these cards coming very soon, since my fur baby isnt doing so well And I know she isnt going to be with us anymore.
That is what is so great with this set. You can use the seperate words to create a bunch of sentiments.
Although I dont think I will be giving this card to myself.  I will need one sometime to send out.


Make sure you head over and join in the fun by linking up for your chance to WIN $20 towards Victorine Originals stamps or Raisin Boat stamps.
 You can also order them here.

SumMoreFun
Mood Board
Challenge #38

A New challenge is up on the
 SumMoreFun blog today.

Here is our Mood Board



Here is my project to inspire you.


Of course I wanted to do something different than a card. So I did a Mixed Media layout that can be framed.
I used various stamps from Raisin Boat's stamp set Growing Love.
First I chose my scrapbook paper. Added white paint to the background.
Stamped the flower image and  using my stamp pad I added a design around it.  I then stamped my other flower image about 4 times and fussy cut each one out, each time making my cuts smaller and smaller.  I then stacked them to make a 3D flower.
I added more papers to add layers and plenty of fun stuff from my stash.
I also stamped the word love from the same set on the black paper. 


Remember you can use anything from the mood board to inspire you.
Something from a picture or even a color.

Make sure you head over and join in the fun by linking up for your chance to WIN $20 towards Victorine Originals stamps or Raisin Boat stamps.

Good Morning crafty friends.
I am up on the SumMoreFun blog
today to share a
Tag I made using Raisin Boat's Growing love stamp set and Victorine Originals Large Sunflower stamp. 


I started out with a blank tag.
I used Distress Oxides to color my background. I then stamped my images in black ink.
I stamped the sunflower and fussy cut it out and cut it in half to fit where I wanted it.
I also cut one of the leafs, colored it and wrapped in wire.
I used 3D dots to lift up the sunflower, lead and thanks.

Thanks SumMoreFun challenge37

Thanks for helping me grow!

SumMoreFun
Mood Board
Challenge #37

A New challenge is up on the
 SumMoreFun blog today.

Here is our Mood Board



Here is my project to inspire you.


Using Raisin Boat's Growing Love Stamp set.
I started out using my distress oxide inks to add my fall colors using red, orange and yellow.  I then stamped my image in green.
Added a few drops with the stamp from the set.  To make it look like its spreading its seeds for next year.
I honestly dont know why I keep using this stamp upside down. But to me it gives it so much more. Thinking outside the box, I guess.

I added a few layers of colored papers to make it pop.
And added the sentiment from the set.

If I had a Rose

If I had a Rose!!

Good Morning crafty friends.
I am up on the SumMoreFun blog
today to share a
card I made using the A rose by any other name stamp set by Raisin Boat.



I made a clean and simple card.  I stamped my rose image in black.  I also stamped the sentiment in blue.
I colored my roses in partly leaving some white to add layers. I added blue and white layer card stock to make it pop.

Choose to shine SumMoreFun Mood Board Challenge36

Choose to shine

SumMoreFun
Mood Board
Challenge #36

A New challenge is up on the
 SumMoreFun blog today.

Here is our Mood Board



Here is my project to inspire you.


Using Raisin Boat's Growing Love stamp set I stamped my images intentionally upside down. That was not a mistake. I wanted them to look like they were falling or flying in the wind .
I distressed around the edges and added a layer of papers behind. I set that part aside while I worked on my back ground. I added more layers of patterned paper directly to my canvas (hard cardboard).
I then used whipped spackle and gesso to add stencils and smears.
I also took the smaller stamps from the set and used them for my backhround using different color ink and stamping here and there.
I then started piecing my layers together and attaching them. Adding molds I made and other things from my stash like thread, washi tape, flowers and die cuts I previously had cut and flat backs.
I watered down my paint and splashed black and white on top using a paint brush. I also used my distress oxide inks to add details to the molds and for distressing.

Here's a close up.

I hope I was able to inspire you today.
