Three Sheet Halloween Cards

Good morning all!  Today I am sharing a collection of 12, yes, 12 different Halloween cards that were made with a few sheets of cardstock from DCWV's new Spooky Halloween stack.
All of the 3"x4" image panels on the cards were cut from one sheet of paper.  The background panels were cut from 2 sheets of paper.  They are double sided, so I had 4 patterns to choose from to compliment the image panels.  So all of these card only used 3 sheets of 12x12 cardstock from that stack!
I die cut rectangles out of black cardstock to matte some of the image panels, but others I left by themselves.  I popped the image panels up with fun foam.
For embellishments, I kept it very simple, only adding dots of Nuvo Drops, Stickles, Pearl Pen or sequins.  These were really fun to create and extremely quick too! 
Here is a flip through video of the DCWV Spooky Halloween stack.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SumMore Fun Sketch Challenge

Hello my crafty friends!  Today is the start of a new challenge at SumMore Fun.  This time, it is a sketch challenge.  You can see it at the end of this post.  I created this card with the brand new You Can stamp set that was just released yesterday!  I love that this set is directed towards cancer encouragement, but can be used for so much more.
I made a panel of white cardstock and stamped the YOU CAN sentiment using Distress Oxides in Candied Apple, Broken China, and Twisted Citron and my stamp platform.  I used washi tape to mask off the letters I didn't want stamped, then removed the washi tape after the ink was on the stamp and stamped!  I then added patterned paper on the lower portion of the panel.
The circles were die cut using stitched circle dies.  I stamped the "do it" sentiment in black, then added dots of Glossy Accents around it on the blue circle.  Both the blue circle and the whole You Can panel were popped up with fun foam.
Here is the sketch to use to join our challenge:

Here is a look at the new You Can stamp set that I used!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SumMore Fun Release Day!

Hello all!  Today is the day you have been waiting for!  All of the new stamp sets that we have been sharing sneak peeks of are available in the SumMore Fun store!  I have one more card to share today that uses the new Tangled Tinsel stamp set.
I started by stamping the tree bough in three different greens at the top of my card, then added the red bows coming down from it.  I added "lights" on the tree with rainbow glossy dots and Glitter Pink Pearl Pen.  The fun part about that pearl pen is that it normally is clear with glitter, but on distress oxides, it picked up the color of the ink, making those dots green with the glitter!
The ornaments and sentiment were stamped on paper from Pebbles' Merry Merry paper pad in black and embossed with black powder.  I fussy cut around them and adhered them in line with the bows, popping the striped ornament up with foam tape.

Here is a close up of the Tangled Tinsel stamp set that I used on today's card:

SumMore Fun Sneak Peek Day 4 ~ You Can

Hello all!  Welcome to the new release week for SumMore Fun!  All the stamp sets you see will be available on Thursday, October 11th.  Today we get to showcase the new stamp set called You Can.  *EDITED to add the You Can stamp set is now available HERE.   Here is the card I created from it.
I started by stamping the large "YOU CAN" sentiment with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink onto cardstock from MAMBI breast cancer paper pad.  As always, I used the stamp platform to do so!  I added clear embossing powder on the sentiment and heat embossed it.  It created a subtle marbling effect on the letters, as you can see in the picture below.
I stamped the ribbon from the You Can set in Picked Raspberry DO as well, then the "beat this" sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black over the top of that.  I die cut that with a doily die and popped that up with foam tape.  The finishing embellishment was a drop of Pearl Pink Pearl Pen on either end of the black strip in the middle of the card.

Make sure to hop on over to the SumMore Fun blog for all of the other inspiration cards from this stamp set and to see the PRIZES being given away this week!

SumMore Fun Sneak Peek Day 2 ~Tangled Tinsel

Hello all!  Welcome to the new release week for SumMore Fun!  All the stamp sets you see will be available on Thursday, October 11th.  Today we get to showcase the new stamp set called Tangled Tinsel.  Here is the card I created from it.
I made it a shaker card by adhering a few layers of fun foam behind the purple circle and adding coordinating sequins.   The ornament and sentiment are part of the Tangled Tinsel set and were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
These lovely snowflakes were also a stamp from that set. I randomly stamped them in gray ink, and Distress Oxides in Broken China, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves.   To embellish, I glued on some sequins and Pearl Pen in Glitter Pink.

Halloween Cards

Hello all!  Today is my day to post for SVG Attic.  I send out Halloween cards every year, so that is what I decided to do for today's project.
The ornaments on the front of the cards (candy corn and pumpkin) are files from the JGW Halloween Ornaments Tree.  I cut them out at the imported size and simply cut out the rest of the card elements by hand.
The papers I used are all from DCWV's Spooky Halloween stack.  I embellished with Orange Licorice and Orange Limeade Trendy Twines as well as sequins.  The sentiments were from the APB Happy Halloween stamp set.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Halloween Treat Chutes

Hello all and happy Thursday! I am sharing the treat bags I made for the Trendy Twine blog today. This month we are showcasing Gray Licorice Trendy Twine, which is perfect for Halloween, and Skinny Candy Chutes.  I paired the two of those together in these Halloween treats!
I filled the Skinny Candy Chutes with candy corn and embellished with Gray Licorice Trendy Twine wrapped around the chute and attached a Lemon Tag-It.  The Lemon Tag-It comes with one hole punched in it, but I added another one to the opposite side of the tag so I could have both sides secured with the Trendy Twine.  I added Lime Orangesicle Trendy Page Dots around the holes on the tag-it.  The sentiments were stamped from the APB Happy Halloween stamp set and the finishing touch was adding bat sequins from Lime Licorice Batty Sequins.

50 Years Card

Hello all!  Happy first day of October :)  Today I am sharing a 50th anniversary card that I recently created.  
The patterned papers I used are from The Paper Studio's Simple Elegance 4.5"x6.5" paper pad.  The bottom paper was cut at 4x4" and I cut down 1.5" from the center top.  I folded each side down to add the white contrast.  The heart was cut from GMD Lacey Lattice Heart die and was popped up with foam tape.  The 50 years was a TPS Stick-a-bilites that I purchased at 75% off earlier this year.  I embellished the card with a tie of white seam binding.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SumMore Fun Mood Board #38

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the SumMore Fun blog with a new mood board (you can see it at the bottom of this post). Here is what I created for inspiration!
I used Raisin Boat's Growing Love stamp set with the Stamp Platform and the wreath builder technique to create this card.  It was fun seeing how the fall wreath would turn out using the different small stamps from that set!  I added a bow of Totally Red Trendy Twine and Momenta Mr & Mrs dies to the card.  I die cut the dies three times, adhering the layers together with Lineco Adhesive and a precision tipped bottle.

Here is a look at the current mood board:
You can enter using the theme, pictures, or colors. Lots of choices! Head on over to the SumMore Fun blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s. We can't wait to see your take on the current Mood Board.

Fun Happy Birthday Card

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog.  The card I am sharing with you uses the beautiful Victorine Originals Happy Birthday stamp.
I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto patterned paper from The Paper Studio's Treat Yourself 6"x6" paper pad.  I trimmed that into a large banner shape and layered it with black cardstock.  I wrapped Totally Lemon Trendy Twine around the banner and added dots of Pearl Pen (Pearl Pink) on the banner before mounting it with foam tape onto the card base.  I just love how that Happy Birthday stamp makes such a bold statement on the card!

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.

Eat. Sleep. FISH.

Hello all, and happy Tuesday!  Today I am bringing you a card that I made multiples of recently.  I am always making cards to sell or to add to my stash to send out!  The patterned papers are all from The Paper Studio's Glasses, Staches, & Ties 4.5"x6.5" paper pad. Over several years, I have made many cards from that pad (I am up to 49 so far!).  You can see more HERE if you are interested.  
I used stamps from Gina Marie Designs' Fishing set with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then die cut around it with her GMD wonky rectangle die.  I popped that up with foam tape and added three silver brads underneath that panel. 
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sunny Side Up Birthday Card

Hello all!  Today I am sharing a card that I recently made just for fun.  I came across the Spellbinders "The Breakfast Club" stamp and die set on clearance and I thought it was so cute, I had to buy it!  This card was made with it.
DCWV's Good Eats stack had the PERFECT papers to match with the stamps.  I cut those panels out using GMD stitched rectangle dies.  The stamping was done with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I inked around the die cuts with brown chalk.  The finishing touch were three sequins in the bottom left corner.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
