Thinking of You

Happy Saturday everyone,
Heather here taking over the SumMore Fun/Victorine Originals blog today with this adorable little kitty stamp from the Raisin Boat set called Wild About Ewe, Honey.

I needed a thinking of you/get well type message and felt this little guy would brighten anyone's day.  So lets get started with how this came together.
I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the kitty in a dark brown hybrid ink then water colored him, we have an orange tabby that I used as my inspiration.  

I then did a distress oxide wash behind him and cut him out with a square rectangle stitched die from my stash.  I went with an A2 sized, top fold dark grey card base and then found some super cute and fun paw print paper in grey colors in my craft room that was perfect.  I cut that down to 4" x 5 1/4" and put it onto the card base where I then laid down the dark grey band and popped up the kitty with some fun foam and put him on top. I wanted to add a sentiment as I am sending this to someone who is very special to our family and needs a pick me up and I immediately grabbed my Victorine Originals Elegant Sayings and used the beautiful Thinking of You.  It was a cute, easy and quick card to make and I am sure it will be loved when it is received.  

Have a great day, supplies are pictured below and don't forget to enter into our current challenge. Click on the pictures to link directly to the Mood Board or products used on my card.

All Tied Up In Red Glitter





Hello everyone,
For the new challenge, All Tied Up, over at Victorine Originals I fell in love with the colors and the pictures on the beautiful mood board.  So I started with a light grey piece of card stock and stamped the Christmas Light Strand from the Christmas Borders set three times on a diagonal with Onyx Black Versafine ink and then heat set with clear embossing powder, then I colored in the lights with a red marker and then filled them in with Nuvo Glitter Drops in Ruby Slippers and then set it aside to dry overnight.  When it was dry I then added a piece of red glitter ribbon across the top and attached two small red glittery mini ornaments to the ribbon and stamped the Happy Holidays sentiment in black ink along the bottom of the card then I attached the light grey card stock onto a piece of darker grey for a small border at the bottom and placed the whole piece onto a side folding A2 card base.


We would love to have you come over and join us at the challenge, you can play along with any of the elements on the mood board; the title, the colors, the pictures or all of it, and we would love to see your creations.  Here is the board for inspiration:

Elk Silhouette in Snow




Hello everyone,
It is my turn to take over the blog at Victorine Originals today and when I saw this stamp set I knew what I wanted to create. For anyone who crafts you know that sometimes what you envision and what comes out are different things, but in this case my project came out better then I had hoped for. So let's see how it all came together:
I started with a piece of light tan card stock cut to A2 size (4.25 x 5.5)and stamped my image using versa-mark clear sticky ink and then heat setting with liquid platinum embossing powder.  I then colored the trees, snow and water area with prismacolor pencils.  On the top portion I used a craft knife and cut out the "sky" openings.  I placed a piece of acetate behind the windows I cut out and then covered the back with fun foam leaving the window area clear.  I found some Marquee Love Glitter from Heidi Swapp in my stash and filled the window.  I then affixed a back piece on to my scene.  I then used a small palette knife and Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone and added some to the snow bank areas. Then I used some Nuvo Translucent Jewel Drops and covered the water area. To finish the card I added my panel to a side folding A2 card base in Kraft.   I am so happy with how it all turned out.  

Thanks for stopping by, don't forget our current challenge, Give Thanks, is still going on over at the Victorine Blog come on over and join the fun.
See you soon!
