Welcome Baby






Hello everyone,
Today is my day to take over the blog at SumMore Fun (Victorine Originals) and I also have baby on the brain as my husband and I are going to be grandparents! So I pulled out this adorable set from Raisin Boat Stamps, "Onesie, Twosie" (10038) and got to work.


I started with an A2 card base in the color Lettuce going for a gender neutral card and with a pencil I lightly drew a grid towards the top of the card. I then took the adorable and wonky picture frame stamp from the set and stamped it in black ink four times, rotating the stamp a quarter turn each time.  I then used the puppy, stick horse, ducky and lion and stamped them each into their own frame.  At the bottom of the card I stamped the "Welcome Baby" from a stamp set in my stash in black ink towards the bottom right portion of the card base.  I liked the look I got from doing just this, but for this card I lightly colored in each image using colored pencils and added some glitter to the top with my Nuvo Clear Glitter Pen.  I colored each of the frames in a light grey with the pencils as well. I think this card would make great baby shower invites or be good at a gender reveal or even as a baby shower gift card, and it would be so easy and quick to mass produce.  Another added bonus is it is a one layer card, so postage costs if mailing would be reasonable.
I hope you have enjoyed my card today, hope you have a great day and please join in on our current challenge, I will link below to the mood board below.
See you all soon!

Red, White & Blue Farm House




Hello everyone,
The mood board for the SumMore Fun Challenge #28 is up and it is a good one!  Here is my take on it.


I started with a piece of Kraft card stock cut to 4 1/4" x 11" and then  scored at 5 1/2" for a top fold A2 card.  I then cut down a piece of decorative card stock to 4" x 5 1/4" and added some decorative Kraft colored ribbon from my stash which I glued to the front and taped down on the back side.  I then added fun foam to the back, cutting a channel so the ribbon did not leave a bump on the front of the card.  I then added the panel to the card base and set it aside while I worked on the rest of the card.
I then took a piece of white card stock and stamped the Farm House image (1959-G) from Victorine Originals in Chocolate Brown Ink and colored the image in with my Prismacolor Pencils and then fussy cut the image out. I popped the image up with some foam tape and added it to the front of the card on the bottom, right.  I then used the sentiment "Thinking of You" from the "Oops A Daisy" (10236-Z) Raisin Boat set in the same Chocolate Brown Ink on a piece of Kraft card stock.  I cut it down and added a diagonal cut at the front for some added interest and then popped it up with some more foam tape and added it to the card front.

To finish it all off I added a few sequins and some super tiny stars over the "i's" in the sentiment and then using Nuvo Glow Drops in Banana Split I colored in the windows on the Farm House.
Thanks for stopping by!

Cat Card



Hello everyone,
It is my day to take over the blog at SumMore Fun (Victorine Originals) and I wanted a card that could be put into my stash and pulled out for different occasions.  I believe this card would be good as a "thinking of you," "just a note," pet sympathy or even a birthday card, and it came together quickly and easily.
I started with a piece of tan card stock cut to 4" x 5 1/4" and treated it with my anti-static bag, then I stamped the cat in black versafine ink and heat embossed with Nuvo Glitter Embossing powder in Glitter Noir, I then stamped the little paw print three times in black versafine ink and heat set with my heat tool.  After I finished the panel I cut a piece of black card stock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"  and glued that to a top fold A2 sized white card base.  I then attached the cat panel to the card and that finished it off.  I can then either add a sentiment to the front or inside at a later time when I need a quick card.
Thanks for joining me today, see you soon!

Sunsets and Tractors



Hello everyone,
The mood board for the SumMore Fun Challenge #27 is up and it is a pretty one!  Here is my take on it.
I started with a piece of white card stock cut to 3 3/4" x 5" and then stamped the Tractor from the Raisin Boat Homegrown (10287) stamp set in black versafine ink and heat set with clear embossing powder.  I then fussy cut a mask out of a post it note and covered my tractor and then covered the top and bottom of the card stock to give it a border.  I then sponged Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Picked Rasberry in Distress Oxide ink over the exposed area over the tractor image.  I removed the masks and heat set the ink with my heat tool and then stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from the Raisin Boat Oops a Daisy (10236) stamp set in the bottom right corner in black versafine ink and heat set with clear embossing powder.  I used some grey Tombow markers and colored in the tractor as I was thinking sunset skies and shadows.  I popped up the panel with some fun foam and added it to my A2 sized top fold card base.  For the card base I sponged Tattered Rose along the edges to tie it into the scene and finished it all off by adding some clear confetti sequins. 

We would love for you to play along so I have included the Mood Board and the link to the challenge below.  Also, if you use the code HEATHER10 at the shop you can get 10% off your purchase and the stamp sets I used in my card are shown below.

Hi Friend!


Hello everyone,
It is my day to take over the blog at Victorine Originals, http://vostamps.blogspot.com/ and I decided I needed some more "just because" type cards for my stash to send to friends who may need a pick me up or just some happy mail.  These daisies are just so versatile and pretty, so let's jump right in and talk about the card:
I started by taking an A2 sized, side folding, white card base and stamping one of the large daisy images from the Raisin Boat Oops A Daisy (10236) set three times on the front edge, while the card was open.  I then fussy cut the edge with the intention of leaving it so there would be a fancy edge while the card was closed, that changed though as I worked on my design, which I will explain shortly.  I also waited to color the images until I finished cutting so if I made a mistake it would be easier to correct then if I made a mistake cutting after I colored them.  I then used 5 different shades of pinks from my Tombow markers and colored the flowers, then using a white gel pen I added some details to each flower to add more interest.  I then stamped the "Hi" and "Friend" sentiments from the same set in black versafine ink.  Once the white ink had dried I added a coat of shimmer to each flower using a Nuvo Glitter Gloss pen.  I then decided that I wanted a bit more color so found some ombre paper in my stash that went perfect and added that to the inside front panel.

For the flower centers I added glossy accents and then sprinkled a dark bronze glitter over the top and waited for everything to dry before cleaning up the stray glitter.  I hope you have enjoyed my card and please join us tomorrow for a new challenge.  See you all soon!

Let the Bliss Begin


Hello everyone,
I needed a quick and pretty card for a wedding reception and of course wanted some sparkle and layers and instantly thought of this beautiful stamp set from the Simon Says Stamp card kit from June 2017.  Using the inspiration sheet in the kit I took the idea from Heather Hoffman and stamped the flowers onto water color card stock cut down to 4" x 5 1/4" and then did a messy color wash using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks.  While that was drying I took a piece of the scripted writing paper in the paper pad and cut it down to 1/2" and then along the left side of the white A2 card base I glued it down flat.  I then took a piece of black card stock and stamped the Congratulations sentiment in Versamark Ink and then used my Nuvo White Glacier embossing powder and heat set onto the strip.


I added my sentiment onto the water colored flower piece and then using the other sentiments in the set stamped those above and below the main sentiment and then popped the whole piece up with fun foam and then lined up the right side with my card base and glued it down.  To finish it off I used Stardust Stickles and using my finger I brushed it over the roses, the centers of the large daisies and the rounded bulb type flowers I water colored in blue.  I love the effect the Stickles gave me on my finished card.
I am entering my card into the Wednesday Simon Says: Sparkle And Shine for April 19th, 2018

See you all soon!

A Homegrown Thinking of You


Hello everyone,
There is a new Challenge over at SumMore Fun and we would love to have you join us.  Here is my take on the inspiration "Mood" Board.  
I wanted to make a scene with the Homegrown (10287-Z) clear stamp set from Raisin Boat the minute I saw it.  One of the things I love when visiting family in Iowa are the beautiful sunsets and I tried to recreate that in this scene.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and stamped the barn, I then masked it off and used Distress Oxides in Faded Lilac, Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans for the sky and Evergreen Bough for the yard.  I then spritzed some clean water and dabbed it off for some added interest.  I then took two of the cows from the set and using Versafine Ink in Black Onyx stamped them and then heat set with clear embossing powder and then masked off the top cow.  Then using the bean field stamp from the set I stamped behind the barn using a dark green ink from my crafty stash, when it dried it dried back quite a bit but I really like how it turned out.  When that was all done I removed my masks and colored the barn using Prismacolor Pencils in reds and grays and then stamped the Thinking of You sentiment at the bottom and some grass in dark green all over the bottom, the grass stamps are also in the Homegrown set.  I popped my finished panel onto an A2 sized Kraft Card Base with some heavy duty double sided tape and plan to send to family back home.  See you all soon!

I sure hope you will come join us and play along.  Thanks for stopping by and I will see you all again soon!
