Take Me Out to the Ball Game!



Happy Friday! Today I'm over on the SumMore Fun Blog sharing a card that's perfect for the Baseball fans in your life.



Using the colors from the current mood board I stamped the bat, glove, ball and music from the Victorine Originals Baseball Set using Red, Blue and Brown inks and cut out using Scan N Cut. Dry embossed Raisin Boat Bear Cub cardstock with star embossing folder and adhered to a 4.25 x 5.5" Raisin Boat Red Delicious cardstock base. Add 3D mounting foam to the cut out elements and arrange on front of card. Add white cardstock to inside of card and stamp with sentiment.

Strokes of Pride + New Mood Board Challenge


Hi, everyone! Today I'm sharing a patriotic card I created for the current SumMore Fun Mood Board Challenge. I have to admit I went outside the "rectangle" with this one which is very unusual for me. I know it's a good thing to work outside our comfort zone and when I'm always scratching my head as to why I don't do it more often. Any-who...before I dive into the details of the card I want to share my inspiration with you.


SumMore Fun Blog has a bi-weekly mood board challenge, play along with the colors, the photos or just use the whole board. Hey, maybe you want ice cream on a boat, who knows! All we know is we can't wait to see what you create and maybe, you'll be the lucky winner of a $20 shop credit with SumMore Fun Online Store. 

You might notice on this challenge both design teams are working with the same stamp set, Raisin Boat Strokes of Pride. 
Strokes of Pride (10212-Z)



HOW TO

  • To create this card simply die-cut white cardstock using a large circle die. 
  • To stamp the USA I used a stamp positioning tool ( it makes this super easy), close the lid of the positioner and lay a circle die-cut on top of the lid, hold in place with washi tape.
  • Open lid and position stamp on the inside of the positioner lid (like you always do) using the die-cut as a guide.
  • Stamp USA using red and blue ink. 
  • Stamp the star using white ink onto kraft paper and fussy cut, add 3D mounting foam to the back and adhere to card. 
  • Die-cut white cardstock banner and stamp sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink adhere using 3D mounting foam
  • Add red, white and blue enamel dots
  • Add a score line to the other die-cut circle to create a fold, add adhesive above the fold line and adhere to die-cut circles together to create card. 
So now it's your turn to show us your take on the mood board. You have until July 19th to link up.

Way To Go!



Happy Friday! Today I'm over on the SumMore Fun Blog sharing four cards featuring the Victorine Originals Bicycles Set with Penny Farthing



Using the colors from the current mood board I did a little repeat stamping with the bicycles, add an embossed line below and above the stamped image using my mini scoreboard, and added a simple sentiment from my stash. 

Using the news print stamps with this set I stamped backgrounds in black and brown, stamped the Penny Farthing in Pink and Green ink, used the scan n cut to cut them out, and popped them up off the stamped backgrounds with 3D mounting foam. The die-cut sentiment is from my stash.

Don't Get Hooked!



Happy Friday, everyone and thanks for joining me on the SVG Attic Blog. Today I'm sharing two fun projects that are perfect for the "fisher-person" in your life. I used artificial baits to decorate the hat and card. Hence, don't get hooked!  


I started with the Fishing 3D Bucket Hat. This hat is so cute and super easy to put together. I thought I might toss a few pieces of candy or a pack of cashews in the hat.  You could even put a pack of hooks and a small bobber in it. 


Of course, you have to have a card to celebrate a birthday. So I created the Fishing Vest A7 Card and Envelope


I used Jelly Bean Green 12 x 12 100lb cardstock and a piece of 12 x 12 Jillibean Soup patterned paper from my stash to create the pockets, the band on the hat and as an accent piece on the envelope flap. To cut the pocket flaps and "gone" I used a scrap piece of 12 x 12 red paper. 
I had to add the recipients initials on the vest. 

I really enjoyed creating these pieces and I know my "fisher-person" is going to like them, too. 
He better or else!

As always, thanks for joining us today. 

It's Your Time To Shine


Happy Friday! It's time for a new challenge over on the CAS-ual Fridays Friday Challenge Blog. Boy, that is a mouth full, right? Be sure to hop over to blog and check out all the inspiration by the other design team members.  Today is my last post for CAS-ual Fridays, it's been two terms and it's bittersweet leaving.  I know it's the right thing for me as we are getting ready to start a remodel in our home. I wanted to thank Michelle for giving me the opportunity. And to all the Girl Fridays, you all are so awesome. Thank you for everything. 

 


This challenge is photo inspiration, my favorites. 


To create this card die-cut black cardstock using the Jumping Jacks Fri-Dies, die-cut  white cardstock with the small jack, run the small jack through a Xyron Sticker maker and then add glitter.
Using 110lb cardstock for the base of my card I add distress oxide inks in Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade to cardbase making sure that my die-cut black cardstock lines up with the inked areas.  Adhere the black cardstock making sure the distress oxide colors show through the die-cut areas. Stamp sentiment and heat emboss with white embossing powder, add to card front. Finish off with enamel dots.
