Wings of Celebration - SumMore Fun Challenge #33

Hello everyone,
For my card today I started with a piece on Neenah Solar White 110# card stock cut to 4"x 5 1/4" and stamped the Butterfly (1594-B) from Victorine Originals in Versamark Ink then heat embossed using Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder.  I then used  Ranger Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean and blended from the top of the card stock downwards to get a slight ombre blend.  I spritzed my paper with water and let sit to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.  I then took a piece of Neenah Solar White 110# card stock cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and swiped Ranger Distress Oxide Ink in Blueprint Sketch around the edges.  I then taped this piece direct to a side folding A2 sized white card base. I then stamped my sentiment from  Raisin Boat's Flourishing Thoughts stamp set (10271) in Versamark Ink and heat set with  Nuvo Fine Detail Embossing Powder in Glacier White on my top design so I could add fun foam to the back to pop it off the card.  To finish off my card front I added some Iridescent Confetti Sequins to make the body for my butterfly.  I then added my fun foam and popped the top layer off the card leaving a small border on the top and left side of the card for interest.  I finished the card off by adding Wink of Stella to the butterfly wings for more sparkle.

May All Your Wishes Come True Birthday Card

Hello everyone,
It is my day to take over the blog at SumMore Fun (Victorine Originals) and I am always in need of birthday cards, but this would have also made a super cute wedding shower card.  I started with an A2 card base in Kraft and then cut a large banner out of some cute Kraft paper with pink polka dots from my crafty stash, I then cut out a circle in the middle of the banner .  I stamped a sentiment from the Raisin Boat Stamp Set Flourishing Thoughts (10271-Z) at the bottom of the banner.  I added some twine with a small bow at the top and then popped the banner up with some foam tape on the card base.  I then cut a circle out of Ivory card stock and stamped the super cute cake stamp from the Raisin Boat Stamp Set Off To Party - Old Design (10003-Z) and then used some pink Copic markers and colored in the cake and topped it off with some Nuvo Clear Glitter Gloss.  I then placed the circle into the space on the banner flat to the card for some added interest with different dimensions between the banner and the circle.  I finished my card off with some pink embellishments.
See you soon!

SumMore Fun Challenge #32- Red, White & Blue Stars

Hello everyone,
I hope you all had a safe & Happy 4th of July.  We are back with our newest challenge and I love this mood board,  I will link to it below and hope to see you all join us and play along.

For my card I started with a Kraft A2 sized card base.  I then cut a piece of patterned card stock I had on hand to 2" and applied that direct to the card base at the bottom, with a small strip of the Kraft card base showing. I stamped the sentiment from the Raisin Boat stamp set (Strokes of Pride 10212-Z) onto the lower portion of the white area of the patterned paper.  I then cut a piece of white water color paper to 2 1/2"x 5 1/4" and prepped the surface with my anti static powder bag.  Using the star stamp from the RB Strokes of Pride stamp set, I stamped the image numerous times with Versamark Ink and then heat set with clear embossing powder.  I applied Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Fired Brick over the panel, and when done I wiped off the stars with a dry paper towel to get the ink off the embossed areas and then flicked clean water onto the panel for some distressing.  When my panel was dry I cut a piece of fun foam for the back and applied the fun foam to the panel with some heavy duty double sided tape.  I then added my panel to the card base.  I finished off the card with some red, clear and blue confetti sequins.
The stamps I used are listed below and if you use code HEATHER10 you will get 10% off your purchase at the shop.  Thanks for stopping by, see you all soon!
