Going Up, Up and Away!

Happy Friday, everyone and welcome! Today I'm taking over the blog with this cutie from the Raisin Boat Spring Is In the Air Stamp Set. This is a great set for Spring and Easter, lots of possibilities with this one. 

This card was created using white cardstock, colored inks, COPIC markers and a few die-cuts from my stash. You can find all the details on my blog, The Relativity of Paper.

I stamped the grass using Memento Inks in the colors Pear Tart, Cottage Ivy, and Bamboo Leaves. 
I colored the balloon, bunny, and basket with COPIC BG's, Y's, RV's.  Once you have the pieces die-cut I added 3D mounting foam to them and adhered them to a 4.25" x 5.5" #110 Neenah Cardstock Classic Crest Solar White card base. Finish off with enamel dots. 

Stamp sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

As always, thanks for joining me today.

First Communion Invitations and Layout

Good Morning! Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog. The cards and layout I am sharing with you uses Raisin Boat's First Communion stamp set.  It is an absolute MUST HAVE for anyone who is celebrating that occasion.  My son will be doing so in a couple weeks.
I created all the invitations using gray and white cardstock.  I designed the top white panel shape in my SCAL 4 software to fit the gorgeous border stamp in the First Communion stamp set.  I stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder on the outline.  The sentiment was also stamped in the same way.  For the chalice, I used the same ink, but embossed with white pearl embossing powder for a silver look.
I used the dotted border stamp with gray ink to add a little more visual interest to the paper underneath the sentiment banner.  All the white cardstock was popped up with foam tape.  I used Totally White Trendy Twine to embellish and also added a dot of Ice White Viva Pearl Pen above the chalice to look like the Holy Eucharist.  Here is a look at all the invitations I created!
I kept one of the cards not assembled so that I could make this layout page for my son's scrapbook.  I asked him how he wanted it to be, and this is the design and papers he chose!  All the elements are the same as the cards with the addition of patterned paper from DCWV's Silver Leaf stack, a white and silver doily, and a larger chalice stamp that is also from the First Communion stamp set.  That stamp and it's shadow were cut out with my Brother Scan N Cut.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Up and Away

Good morning Sharon here from Mollie Moo's Crafty Place taking over the blog on this spring day.

Today I am using a Raisin Boat set of stamps called Spring Is In The Air:

The cute Hot air balloon was colored to match this month's challenge mood board colors and both that and the adorable tiny bunny fussy cut. I used some cloudy sky patterned papers and die cut a penny slider 'flight path'. The same paper was placed underneath and I made a penny slider with the hot air balloon. You can see it in action here:

I stamped one of the many sentiments from the Spring is in the Air stamp set in the bottom corner and added another bunny face.
Once the mechanism was working I matted this onto blue card and my white card base. I added a few enamel dots to balance the design.

this is just another way that you can use our mood board for the challenge and be in with a chance of winning a gift certificate to our store:

Just take a look at the challenge blog post and go ahead and enter!
