SumMoreFun ~ The Face

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamps:

Woman's Face

For todays post I wanted to share a truly versatile stamp with you. Woman's Face can be stamped on pretty much any paper, Patterned or plain and the results are always perfect.



Card Recipe:
I stamped the Woman's Face on a piece of Distress ink smooshed watercolor paper from my stash using Memento Dew Drops in Tuxedo Black and then applied some some flicks of black watercolor paint over the surface of both the base of the card and the stamped panel. The sentiment is from my stash and was stamped on a piece of velum then I applied a thin layer of white paint to the backside to take away some of the translucent properties of the velum.

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I used Tombow Extreme to affix the stamped Woman's Face layer to the A2 sized side folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock that I previously flicked the black on. The sentiment was then applied over a nest of silver thread using Tombow Extreme

SumMoreFun ~ Challenge # 28

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #28 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is so pretty.  Here's my inspiration for you using: Farm House

I really had no direction for this card as I was making it, I like how it came out and am going to give it to my DT Sister Heather to send to her Grandmother as she owns a farm in Iowa and this farm stamp looks very much like the farm on her property.

SumMoreFun ~ Masculine Birthday

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamps:

Motorcycle No Limits and Map

I am always trying to add to my card stash "Masculine" themed cards that I can pull and pretty much use for Birthdays.  Today's card hit the mark perfectly!





Card Recipe:
I stamped the Map on a piece of pattern paper from my stash using white pigment ink and then applied some clear embossing powder on top to heat set, the heat must have brought out the purples in the patterned paper as the color shifted from white to the color you see.  Next I used Memento Dew Drops in Tuxedo Black to stamp the Motorcycle I then applied versamark and clear embossing powder to really achieve a deeper black and some dimension. Once I was happy with my motorcycle I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the Motorcycle. Lastly I stamped the pull tab using a sentiment from No Limits

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I used a slider channel die on the Map layer, created a slider tab for the Motorcycle to slide on, then created a pull tab to reveal the stamped message. After applying some foam tape to the backside of the map layer I affixed it to a piece of Desert Storm cardstock. to an A2 sized side folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock. Final assembly was attaching a piece of green paper to a side folding A2 sized card base of Neenah white cardstock, then attaching the Motorcycle and Map layer using Tombow glue

SumMoreFun ~ Challenge #27

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #27 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is so pretty.  Here's my inspiration for you using: Homegrown

Using the Homegrown set when I was making the masculine birthday cards I wanted to see if I could create a feminine birthday card.


~
Recipe:
I started with a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar Crest cardstock using my Tim Holtz stamping platform and lots of masking paper I die cut numerous sized Hexagons. I heavily inked the colors *See Colors used below* moving and placing the masks where I wanted and did not want color finally leaving the 3 white hexagons in the center. I positioned the Cows from the Homegrown stamp set in the platform and heavily inked the cows. The sentiment was printed from my computer and attached to a piece of black cardstock.  Next was assembly,  the layers were attached to a base of Neenah 110lb Solar Crest cardstock cut to a side folding A2 sized card.  The sentiment was attached using a strip of double sided foam tape on top of a nest of silver thread.  Lastly the card was finished off with some sequins affixed with Glossy Accents to add just a hint of sparkle. 
*The colors of ink I used on this card are all from Memento and found in various 4packs and 12packs from SumMoreFun
London Fog
Angel Pink
Tuxedo Black

SumMoreFun ~ Ahoy!

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamps:

Ship at Sea Ahoy Lined Background

I am always trying to add to my card stash "Masculine" themed cards that I can pull and pretty much use for any occasion.  Today's card can be used for the following types of occasions.  Retirement, Birthday, Fathers day, Get Well, just to name a few.



Card Recipe:
I stamped the Lined Background using an acrylic block in a random pattern on a piece of Neenah 110lb cardstock using Versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Next I used Memento Dew Drops in Nautical Blue with a blending pad to give an ombre effect. Once I was happy with the blending I die cut with a stitched rectangle die and set it aside.  Then I stamped the Ship at Sea using my Tim Holtz stamp platform onto some Varsity Blue cardstock using a white pigment ink pad and applied clear embossing powder.  I then die cut the ship with a smaller stitched rectangle die and set it aside.  The last thing to stamp was the Ahoy which i stamped onto a piece of velum using the Nautical Blue ink pad (NOTE: my inkpad is super juicy and I used my heat gun held at a distance to speed up drying) I then tore the edges of the velum to add some interest to the layer.

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I affixed the blended background layer to an A2 sized side folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock. Next was attaching the piece of burlap which I removed threads from all sides to give the current appearance.  I then affixed the ship layer using a good layer of Tombow glue and placed a couple of acrylic blocks on top to really set the layer on top of the burlap. The Ahoy sentiment was attached using Tombow again behind the stamped letters and also where I knew I was going to be attaching the pearlescent embellishments.

SumMoreFun ~ Challenge #26

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #26 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is so pretty.  Here's my inspiration for you using: Homegrown

I seem to never have enough masculine birthday cards, yet I seem to have so many men in my life with birthdays and I am always rushing last minute to create something.  The set I used to create today's card actually made it easy to make a few of these in different colors to add to my stash and have on hand



~
Recipe:
I started with a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar Crest cardstock and The My Favorite Things Dienamics Blueprints # 27. I ran the cardstock with the upper window part of the set thru my BigKick to get the 3 small windows.  Then using my Tim Holtz stamping platform I positioned the Cows from the Homegrown stamp set in the platform and started by inking the cows with a *second generation stamp technique (See Below for link) using Memento Dew Drops in Rich Cocoa found in the Gotta Have 4 pack. For the grassy areas under each cow I used the same technique but using a small acrylic block. The ink colors were Memento Dew Drops Cottage Ivy and Bamboo Leaves from the Greenhouse 4 pack set.  The sentiment was printed from my computer and then die cut using the lower section of the blueprints window.  Next was assembly, all other papers are from my stash and the layers were attached to a base of Neenah 110lb Solar Crest cardstock cut to a top folding A2 sized card.  Lastly the card was finished off with some homemade enamel dots affixed with Stickles in the 2 colors shown to add just a hint of sparkle.
