SumMoreFun ~ Challenge #20

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #20 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is so pretty.  Here's my inspiration for you using: Four Layer Cake
Today's card features lots of embossing and fussy cutting. This was relatively easy to make and I was able to create a few cards but am only showcasing 2 of them here today for you






Card Recipe:
 Starting with 4 different colors of card stock that fit the colors on the mood board I stamped and embossed the Four Layer Cake using gold embossing powder. Then I fussy cut the layers apart so that I could create cakes with different colored tiers.  Once I was happy with the placement I used foam adhesive dots to affix each tier to a die cut panel of black card stock that has a wood grain texture. The panel was then glued to a kraft colored die cut panel that I had previously glued to the front of a side folding piece of Neenah 110lb Solar Crest White card stock.  creamy colored sequins were then added to add a little dazzle~confetti look to the card

SumMoreFun Designs ~ Happy Birthday #3

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

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

Here's my inspiration for you using:

Happy Birthday 2871
and
Backgrounds Set

Today I want to share a fast and easy Birthday card with you.  The whole month I will be doing Birthday cards. 




Card Recipe:
 Using a piece of Neenah 80lb white card stock I stamped the Background Set/Stick Splatter all over the paper using versamark to which I applied WOW Clear Gloss super fine embossing powder and heat set I then applied Distress ink In Peacock Feathers to the whole panel. I then used versamark to stamp the Happy Birthday and applied WOW Clear Gloss super fine embossing powder and heat set. Distress Ink was once again used in Wilted Violet.  That cute little bow was die cut using a piece of scrap card stock that I distress inked with Peacock Feathers lightly. I glued the bow to the bottom of the balloon die cut layer and affixed a heart enamel dot this gives a nice little touch of sparkle to the bow.  I added a layer of foam to the backside of the balloon layer and glued it to the top of the splatter panel.  Finally the whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size side fold card.

SumMoreFun ~ Challenge #19 ~ Try Something New

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #19 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is: "Try Something New".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
Happy Birthday to make a Flap Card which I have always admired and never had tried myself.  This was relatively easy to make.  I say relatively because it took me 2 tries to get the die positioned just right until I was happy.




Card Recipe:
 Using a top folding A2 sized of Neenah 110lb card stock I took a balloon edge die and die cut there I wanted the bottom of the balloon to be on the card. I then stamped the Happy Birthday using versamark and applied clear embossing powder and heat set the stamped image. Next I took a strip of post it tape and applied it to the top of the card to act as a mask. Using Distress ink in Wilted Violet I applied a heavy layer to the edges and top feathering the color lighter towards the center.  A bow from trendy twine and a strip of silver glitter washi tape were added for a lil extra dimension and sparkle.

Happy Birthday 2871
and
Festively Wrapped Gift

Happy New Year!!! Today I want to share a fast and easy Birthday card with you.  The whole month I will be doing Birthday cards.

Turning a Sunflower into a Gerbera Daisy

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog Here's my inspiration for you using: Large Sunflower
Now I know the stamp is a sunflower but I really wanted to stretch the stamps use and decided to try using it as big bold bright gerbera daisy, you know the kind you see at the florist shops in an array of colors.


Card Recipe:
 Using a piece of Strathmore Bristol Velum that I die cut I stamped the image with versamark and used clear embossing powder and heat set the image. The flower was then watercolored using Gansai Tambi watercolors.  The watercolor layer was then glued to a die cut piece of black wood grain paper that I used a Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle die.  The whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size.

SumMoreFun ~ Challenge #18 ~ Happy New Years 2018

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #18 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is: "Happy New Years 2018".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
Backgrounds Set and Holiday Wishes


Close up detail of splatter behind clock face


Card Recipe:
 Diecut the clock and hand 4 times from black cardstock and glued each layer together, then I applied versamark and peach gold embossing powder in 3 layers to clock face and black embossing powder in 3 layers to hands. To make the tips of the hands stand out I added a layer of the peach gold embossing powder. For the splatter behind the clock face I traced a circle on printer paper (to use as a mask) using the clock face as my guide. I then cut out the circle and applied the mark to the front of a 110lb layer of black cardstock. I took the long stick/scratch like scatter stamp from Backgrounds Set and randomly stamped inside the mask using versamark. I removed the mask and applied clear embossing powder and heat set the scattered images. For the sentiment I used the Christmas Merry & Happy New Year stamp from the Holiday Wishes set. To achieve just stamping the words Happy New Year I applied a piece of Post it Note tape as a mask to the front of the card so that only the Happy New Year part of the stamp would apply to the card, I repeated the same technique as the background splatter. The whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb cardstock cut to A2 size. Black enamel dots were added for a lil extra dimension

SumMoreFun ~ Let's Get Flake-y!!

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog. As you can see I am still making Christmas Cards, hey no one ever said I was on the ball and getting things out on time.  Yes I am one of those Christmas Eve last minute shoppers you see pictured on the evening news. With that said here is my inspiration today for you using:
Let it Snow and Holiday Wishes


Non Blizzard


Blizzard Effect

Card Recipe:
 I started off by using 3 colors of distress ink Dusty Concord, Blueprint Sketch, and Salty Ocean and doing some heavy blending I achieved the blend I was hoping for.  I then stamped the snowflakes with versamark and used white embossing powder and heat set the flakes. The sentiment was then stamped on vellum and white embossing powder used, the silver stars are from my stash (leftover from a previous project) and glued to the vellum layer. The velum was attached to the distressed and embossed layer by applying glue directly behind the stars.  This hides/keeps the glue from showing thru the velum.  The whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size.

For the second card BLIZZARD EFFECT the recipe is the exact same except I wanted to achieve a look to the card as if it had been dusted with snow.  To achieve this look instead of using my embossing buddy before applying the versamark to the snowflakes, I took my fingertips and sort of grasped/smooshed them around the edges so that the oil from my fingers would grasp to the card and pick up embossing powder.
