Sewing Scraps Card

Hello and happy Wednesday!  I am posting for the SumMore Fun blog today.  This time I am bringing back one of my very first Victorine Originals stamp sets...the Sewing set.  It has been three years since I first got this set and still love it to pieces!
This card was different for me.  It is supposed to look like fabric scraps and therefore is haphazard.  NOT how I usually create, but the Carta Bella Sew Lovely paper scraps were begging to be used!  I simply adhered the patterned paper onto the 5x7'' card base and then filled in the gaps with stamps from the Sewing set in brown ink.
The sentiment was also stamped in brown and is from the Victorine Originals Floral and Sayings stamp set, ANOTHER of my absolute favorites! <3  The only embellishments were some buttons and a a little sewing thread through a couple of them.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Pier Scene Card

Hello all and welcome back to another Wednesday in which I am posting for SumMore Fun!  This card was created with the recently restocked Raisin Boat Pier Happiness and No Loss For Words stamp sets.  I really enjoyed creating this scene!
I used several colors of inks on this card, as you can see.  I received new Scrapbook.com hybrid inks for Christmas, and have loved experimenting with them.  First of all, I stamped the pier with Black ink and watercolored it with Cinnamon ink and an aqua brush.  I then filled in the rest of the scene with stamps, starting with the rocks.  Those were stamped with Charcoal ink and watercolored with Rainy Day ink.  The tree was next, being stamped with Pine and Cinnamon inks.
The grass was stamped with Succulent ink and I did some second generation and partial stamping of the grass too.  I added sand stamped with Camel ink and geese flying with Rainy Day ink.  To finish off the sky, I used Daffodil ink to blend a little sunshine in from the top right corner.
The water was created by watercoloring with Postal Blue ink.  I decided I wanted to add a sentiment, so I chose "Thinking of you" from the No Loss For Words stamp set and stamped it in black.  To finish off the scene, I lightly blended Rainy Day ink around the outside edges.  Once I matted it with black and navy cardstock, it was ready to be adhered to a card base.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Thank You Sketch Card

Hello and Happy New Year!  Today I am posting for the SumMore Fun blog.  I decided to kick off 2020 with a card style that we ALL can use...a thank you card.  
The stamp that I used is a red rubber Victorine Originals Thank You.  I placed the cling mounted stamp on my stamp platform and stamped it with Scrapbook.com Midnight Blue Ink.  I cleaned my stamp off, leaving it on the platform, then used Versamark Ink to re-stamp.  I then heat embossed with clear embossing powder for a little extra visual interest.  I added a little brown ink around the edge of the stamped rectangle then popped it up with foam tape onto the card base.  The base of the card was created with navy blue cardstock, DCWV Cartographer patterned paper, In The Navy Trendy Twine, and metal brads.  This card was perfect to send off as a thank you for Christmas gifts!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!  Today the Trendy Gals are sharing Christmas projects over on the Trendy Twine blog.  Make sure to hop over there to see them all!  Here is the card I created.
I started with lots of patterned papers from the 6x6 Echo Park Wise Men Still Seek Him pad.  The stamps were from the APB Merry Christmas stamp set.  I stamped them with VersaMark and heat embossed with gold powder.  Isn't that linework stable stamp wonderful?!
I used Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine to line both sides of the center panel and added a bow of it underneath the stamped image.  Additional products I used include GMD Scalloped Stitched Rectangle die, GMD Doily die, Cottage Cutz Stitched Circle die, ATG, and foam tape.

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