Dear Old Santa Tag

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog.  The tag I am sharing with you uses the Victorine Originals Large Dear Old Santa stamp.
I stamped the face using Versafine Onyx Black ink onto a kraft tag that I hand-cut, then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then used Prismacolor Scholar colored pencils to color the image.  I added Liquid Applique to the hat to make it look fuzzy and Glossy Accents to the glasses to make them look real!
I matted the tag with black and plaid cardstocks.  I embellished the tag with a Trendy Page Dot, Totally Red and Totally White Trendy Twines, as well as glitter enamel dots.

Remember, we have a monthly challenge going on right right now in the SumMore Fun Creations Facebook group!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sparkle Card

Happy Monday all!  Today I am taking a break from holiday creations to bring you a fun birthday card I recently created.  All the patterned papers are from Craft Smith's Stay Magical paper pad.  The iridescent foiling on the gemstone paper is so pretty!
It was really quite simple to create, simply cutting the patterned papers the sizes I wanted and matting them with dark gray cardstock.  The sentiment panel is popped up with foam tape.  The scalloped layer was cut using GMD scalloped rectangle die.  I embellished with various self adhesive rhinestones that matched the colors of the papers.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Christmas Gable Box

Hello all!  Today I am posting for the Trendy Twine blog with this great gable box that would be perfect for giving a small gift or baked goods for Christmas.  It is embellished with  Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine, our featured twine for December.
I started with a Small Gable Box and covered the sides with paper and stickers from DCWV's Red & White Christmas stack.  I glued Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine around the front panel and Frosted Cranberry Sequins in the bottom right corner.
To dress up the top of the box, I made a bow using more patterned paper and a Stampin Up! bow punch and adhered it just under the handle of the box.  I then added the tag that was made with Large Metal Rim TagCandy Cane Trendy Page Dot, a sentiment from APB Merry Christmas stamp setFrosted Cranberry Sequins, and tied with Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine.  The snowflakes are more stickers from the previously mentioned paper stack.


Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Laurel Wreath Impossible Card

Good morning to all my crafty friends!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I am sharing my version of the SVG Attic Laurel Wreath Impossible Card.
These cards are quite simple to make, once you realize how they are made!  Jodi has a great tutorial HERE if you get stuck.  I used patterned papers from DCWV's Red & White Christmas stack and solid papers from DCWV's Flipside Christmas stack.  The leaves are inked with dark green chalk ink and the embellishments include an organza bow and red Stickles.  I used Scotch tacky glue to assemble the card.
 I added a stamped sentiment from the APB Merry Christmas stamp set.  Now it is ready to send to someone special for Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SumMore Fun Monthly Challenge #2

Good morning and welcome to SumMore Fun's monthly challenge!  
Each challenge will have a theme, this may be a technique for you to try or a physical theme.  We are no longer expecting you to link your blog post to our challenge post.  We have a great new Facebook fan group called SumMore Fun Creations. All entries should be placed in the album labeled Monthly Challenge #2 in this group which can be found by clicking the link above.  This means even if you don't have a blog you can now join in!!

On to our second monthly challenge:
This month's theme is Christmas Crafts

My inspiration card uses the Victorine Originals Swirl Christmas Tree stamp and Christmas Wishes stamp.
The tag was die cut out of white cardstock and I stamped the Swirl Christmas Tree stamp using Sparkling Unicorn Spit in Lavish Lovebirds.  I simply took a paintbrush and painted the Unicorn Spit onto the stamp, then stamped it onto the tag.  Check out the beautiful shimmer and watercolor-like look it has!  To finish off the tag, I blended Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink around the outside and tied Cherry Latte Trendy Twine at the top.
The patterned papers are from The Paper Studio's Rustic Noel paper pad.  I added 3 colors of burlap ribbon behind the tag to add to the rustic feel of the card.  The Christmas Wishes sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white powder.  I added red Stickles to the tree and corners of the card for a little extra sparkle.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Hot Dog Wobble Card

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Canines in Costume stamp set.  I just love how fun that set is!
I stamped the wiener dog from the Canines in Costume stamp set onto white cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black ink, then watercolored it with Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Fired Brick, Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo, and Weathered Wood).  The white and black ovals were die cut with GMD Slash Stitched Oval Dies.  I even added an Action Wobble between those two layers so the dog would wiggle :)  I also stamped the Hot Dog sentiment from the same stamp set onto the yellow banner with black ink.
Here is a close up of the Action Wobble.  My boys all LOVED trying it out!  Other products used on this card include papers from the DCWV Good Eats stack and coordinating sequins.

Remember, we have a monthly "All Dressed Up" challenge going on right right now in the SumMore Fun Creations Facebook group!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Christmas Treats with Annie's Paper Boutique

Happy Monday!  The Trendy Twine DT is showcasing some fun Christmas treat projects today that use Annie's Paper Boutique stamps.  Hop on over to the Twine It Up! blog for all the inspiration!
I started with a Mini 4oz. Cup and wrapped it with paper from DCWV's Blue Noel stack.  I used Scor-tape to adhere it to the cup to make sure it would stick well!
I decorated the top with a die cut and stamped a sentiment from the APB Let It Snow stamp set in a 1" circle for the top.  A few Peppermint Icicle Sequins adhered with Glue Dots and the top was done!
I wrapped Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine around the lid of the cup then let two strands hang.  To those, I attached die cut mittens from SVG Attic.  They are sized at 2" tall.  Then I added the "cold hands, warm heart" sentiment from the APB Let It Snow stamp set to a banner and tied it to the lid with two jingle bells and more of the Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine.  I also added the negative die cut of the snowflakes from the mittens on the sides of the cup and more of the Peppermint Icicle Sequins for a finishing touch.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Trendy Bakers Twine~Contemporary Thankful Card

Hello all and happy Tuesday!  I am sharing the "thankful" card I made for the Trendy Twine blog today. This month we are showcasing Orangesicle Trendy Twine
I started with some fun contemporary patterned papers from DCWV's Peachy Keen stack.  I wanted the sentiment from APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set to be the focal point, so I stamped it in black ink on a Mango Tag-It, then layered that on a White Tag-It.  I added a Lime Orangesicle Trendy Page Dot to the tag then tied Orangesicle Trendy Twine through the hole.
I wrapped three strands of Orangesicle Trendy Twine around the light gray cardstock to add a little more visual interest to the card.  To embellish, I glued Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems and Autumn Sequins on the lower right corner.

Tiny Treat Boxes

Hello everyone!  Today I am posting for the SVG Attic blog.  I created these tiny treat boxes using SVG Attic's Mini Treat Place Card file.
The original file creates a box that is only 1.25" tall, but I enlarged these just a bit so they could hold a little more.  The papers I used are all from DCWV's Red & White Christmas stack.  The design is super simple to assemble, but directions can be found HERE if you need them!
The tags are included with this file and I stamped them with VersaMark ink and sentiments from APB Merry & Bright stamp set.  I heat embossed them with silver glitter embossing powder for a bit of sparkle and shine.  I then tied them to the wrap around the box with Peppermint Stick and Stormy Trendy Twines.  Inside the boxes I added money and Hershey's Kisses.  These will make great stocking stuffers for Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
