Happy Holidays

Happy Saturday! Sharon from Mollie Moos Crafty Place taking over the blog today and I'm getting so excited that the holidays are almost here.

Have you got all your cards done and sent? If not I'm show casing a very simple one that is great if you have multiples to do and it just uses one stamp set.


I used the pine bough from Raisin Boat's Holiday Hang Ups set and stamped it around 3 sides of white card using different shades of green ink. I then switched to red ink and stamped berries and my sweet little sentiment. An amber ink was used to stamp the stars.


 I used a fine point pen to 'hang' these on the tree and added the small tied bow to the biggest one - again a stamp from the same set. This stamp set also has a number of Christmas ornaments with it so is packed full of possibilities.
Once stamped I then matted a white base with a silvery blue mirror card, red card and finally my stamped card. 

for the theme I used the current challenge mood board choosing the colors and the pine boughs

There is still almost a week to get your entries in and with the all decked out theme we all have a card made that could be entered.

Happy Holidays + Holiday Hang Ups


Hi and welcome back. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper taking over the blog today with a Christmas  card featuring the Raisin Boat  Holiday Hang Ups Stamp Set. I love retro ornaments, so I had to have this set, so beautiful!  I used the Distress Inks to coordinate with the current Mood Board. 

I'm going to share a little secret with ya. You have to try this cardstock, it's amazing.
It comes in 15 different colors, #100, sturdy cardstock, loving it.



To create this look I used a stamp position tool, stamping the ornaments in Peacock Feathers, Candied Apple Red, Fossilized Amber and the branch with Peeled Paint. Using Gold ink stamp sparkles randomly. Added fun foam to the white cardstock panel and layered on Raisin Boat My Colors Cardstock - Roasted Red Pepper. Finished off with a few glitter enamel dots on stamped sparkles.

We Three Kings....

Hi, hope you are all having a great day.

 Sharon here from Mollie Moos Crafty Place taking over the blog for the day showcasing a traditional card with a modern twist.


I used distress inks to make a night sky and stamped the Victorine Original stamp: Three Wise Men onto this. I matted a card base with black card. I then die cut and embossed a piece of silver mirror card and arranged this over my image so that it was visible through the oval aperture.


I then stamped The Wishing You Joys of The Season onto white card and matted this onto black and silver card. This was adhered to the top part of the card. 

I love clean and simple cards and this is so easy to do using Sum More Fun stamps.

Merry & Bright Trio..

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!
YAY for me... 🙌

I thought I would show you a Set of
Christmas cards I created - I was inspired by
a video I watched of Jennifer McGuires -





Some of you know I've made this style of card before - Usually I make

it with a shape type of card - it's a card with a FLAT Back -
It's not your "Normal" Top folding type of card --

I cut my white Cardstock out 3x's (since I was making 3 cards)
The size is 3 1/4" w x 10" H (scored @ 5") so it can fold
My Kraft Cardbase is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece
then my Red Designer Paper is 4 x 5 1/4

The stamped images are a trio 
called Cactus Pine and Palm Christmas
which is a Victorine Original Stamp set

The Merry & Bright Sentiment I'm using 
is from Raisin Boat and it's called
Let it Snow (9085-Z)

Both can be found easily in the 
SumMore Fun Online Store



Here's the first one - I'm using Canson Watercolor paper
and my Zig Real brush pens 
to color in all the stamped images -
The designer Papers are ALL Scraps -
Which is what I like most about making these cards


Here's the Fun Cactus card - I did use a small
stitched rectangle die, just to add a little extra
something around the images -- and then I
used a Stitched Scallop border die --
I heat embossed the Sentiment with some
Fine White embossing powder and then
cut them out with a small banner die --


And now the cute Palm Tree! I really think these stamps
are fun & whimsical - perfect to send to some in Texas
or Arizona or Hawaii! You know, those really nice
warm states during the holidays! LOL


This is what the insides look like 
along with how these cards open! They are
top fold opening type cards, but smaller in size
attached to a regular sized card base -
I really Hope I made sense!! 


I stamped all the inside sentiments with another Raisin Boat
stamp set - this one is called Festive Phrases (9310-Z)
and then I just added some border strips to each inside card
so they can match the outside of the cards --

The Perfect Tree

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog Here's my inspiration for you using: Holiday Wishes 
Are you all ready for Christmas? I know I am not.  As you can see I am busily making Christmas cards to send out to family and friends.



Card Recipe:
 Loosely watercolored a Tree on Canson watercolor paper using Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I stamped the image with versamark and used white embossing powder and heat set the image. The stars were then stamped using Distress Oxide in the color Faded Jeans.  Both the watercolor layer and the patterned paper were cut using a Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle die.  The whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size.

Snow Globe Fun Christmas Card

Snow Globe Fun
Christmas Card


Hey Crafty friends.
Amy here to share a little fun Snow Glob Card with you.
I used Victorine Originals Snow Globe Stamp, Let it Snow sentiment and the cute Twins stamp.


These two are so cute.


I stamped my Snow Globe image on white cardstock and cut it out.
I used a punch to cut out the middle, leaving enough to look like snow building up around the inside.
I then punched out the blue vinyl to add to the back.
Stamping my Twin images, I decided to fussy cut them out too and added them to the center.
I added a lil glitter paste to the bottom of them to make it look like the snow settling on the bottom before you shake it.
I added the Let It Snow sentiment because it fit so well.
Visit my blog for a list of supplies at thetigershaven.blogspot.com

Dont forget to join in our Mood Board Challenge going on right now. 


Link up your projects by Thursday for your chance to win. And if you use Victorine Originals or Raisin Boat Stamps the prize doubles. 
How awesome is that?

I hope I was able to inspire you today

It's A Polka Dotted Christmas





Hello everyone,
Happy Saturday everyone, Heather here taking over the blog! 
I have been looking at this stamp from Victorine Originals and in my head I have ideas.... but it is making those ideas work that has kept me stumped, until I found this pretty Christmas paper in my craft room.  The greens and reds with the cream background just made me think I can make it work! So I pulled out a piece of red card stock and cut it down to 4 1/4 x 11" and folded it at 5 1/2" for a top folding card base, I then set that aside.  I then cut the decorated card stock down to 4" x 5 1/4"  and I found this pretty ribbon in my Christmas paper box and thought it would be the perfect touch on the bottom, so I took the three colors and attached them to the backside and twisted them and then pulled them across the front of the card and attached to the back, then I cut fun foam to go on the back of the card stock and cut a channel out for the ribbon so it would not push that part higher on the front.  Then I laid that down onto the red card base and set it all aside.  I then took a piece of matching red card stock and cut it with a die in my stash and took some Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone and used a snow stencil to add some dimension to the die cut card stock.  While that was drying I used my stamp platform and stamped the Polka Dotted Christmas Tree on vellum with versa mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder, I did this three times to make it very smooth and thick, then when it was cool I fussy cut the vellum tree.  I then spent a long time cutting small pieces of foam tape and attaching them to the back of the tree, I went around the small polka dots before I decided to use the rainbow confetti sequins and cover the polka dots where the vellum was showing.  When my red die cut piece was dry I attached it to the card base and then attached the tree and once that was completed I then added the confetti pieces in blues, red, green, silver and gold in random sizes.  I am so happy with how the card came out and hope you enjoy.
