SumMore Fun - New Release Blog Hop

Good morning

TODAY IS THE DAY!!!


Yes it's new release day over at SumMore Fun and to celebrate we are having a design team blog hop. My teamies have come up with some amazing designs for the new release and we want to share these with you while giving you the chance to win prizes.

I have used the Soda-lighted set again as I love the versatility of this set.


I started by stamping 4 of the cans, three on my topper and the fourth on a separate piece of card. I colored all of them with alcohol markers and fussy cut the fourth one. This was then curved and placed over the center can using glue gel to give dimension. I added the sprays of pop and drips down side of one can. these had magic transparent pearl pen added to them to give the look of wetness. I also added clear droplets as bubbles
I then added some of the words from the stamp set amongst the bubbles. The sentiment is one of three available in the set. My scalloped card base was matted with red card and was my sentiment.

Now for the blog hop 
Visit everyone's blogs and make sure to leave comments on everyone's pages. Each comment gets you another entry to win 6 Distress Oxide pads in the colors of your choice! (Retail value of $35.94)

Sneak Peek Three - Yes You Can!

Good morning! 


Today is the last day of sneak peeks from SumMore Fun and as it is breast cancer Awareness month it is so fitting:


The set is called You Can and is an all word set, except for the ribbon. It's not just for cancer. The words in this card can be use for anyone who is struggling and need words of encouragement.

I have used pink for breast cancer as this is a disease that is very close to my heart.
I started by stamping the YOU CAN onto pink card with pink ink. This is one stamp but I cut it into 2 separate words so I could add the ribbon in the middle of them. I then stamped the remainder words onto a larger piece of the same pink card.
I chose a matching pink ribbon and layered a hugs and kisses ribbon over this. I then adhered these to the larger pink card.
I matted a white card base and my YOU CAN card with dark pink card My piece with ribbon was then matted onto the base. Using foam to give dimension I added my YOU CAN to the center of my card and as usual with my cards a few pink gems just balanced out the design.

What fun would this be without prizes?
 None, that's what -and we can't have that!

If you watched our unboxing video, you saw that we ordered a bunch of 6x6 paper packs to play with. We're looking for designs to start monthly kits, but we can't order just one paper pack at a time. We have at least 2 of every design! Want to get one mailed to you for free? 







All you have to do to enter is comment here and on each of our design team member's posts. We'll give away a pack each day of the sneak peeks so come back every day this week! Winners of all prizes will be announced on Monday, October 15th, so you have plenty of time to enter.

If you're international and win, we still want it to be fun! You'll have the option of paying for shipping or receiving the digital prize instead.

Now go and check out my teamie's makes

SumMore Fun - Another Sneak Peek - Can you believe it!

Good morning!
I'm here with my second sneak peek using new release stamps from SumMore Fun.

Don't forget, comment on mine and my teamie's posts and you can win prizes details below.

Who likes their soda? If you do you'll love this set Soda-lighted:


The cans come in 2 sizes, here I have used the large, masked one off to stamp the one laying down. I have colored them using alcohol markers. As the cans are already popped open I added a couple of drips coming from the one on it's side and added Nuvo Crystal Glaze on this to give a shine.
As I wanted my card to be simple I matted a white base with matching "Fanta" orange card. I then stamped the word Soda on the cans and one of the sentiments from the set.

What fun would this be without prizes?
 None, that's what -and we can't have that!

SumMore Fun New Release Sneak Peek - Tinsel Tease

Good Morning, after a week of sweating in Vegas we are now freezing in Michigan but I can live with that!

SumMore Fun has an exciting week planned this week. We, the design team,  are starting with sneak peeks of some fab new stamp releases later this week. Yes I know it's only fall but Christmas isn't far away and today we are showing you some of the gorgeous images from a new Christmas stamp set  that is being released.

Oh and if you comment on all the sneak peek posts for today you can win a prize - check details below for more info!

So here is my card using Tinsel Tease:


I love making clean and simple cards and this is just that. I used the pine bough 4 times to make a branch long enough to hang the bells and bauble on. I colored the bells and lightly tinted the bauble to make it look like glass.
I then stamped one of the many sentiments in to the bauble. Yes they all fit inside if that is how you want to use them.
I matted a red card base with a green mirror card and added my topper. To fit in with the sentiment I added a jingle bell with a red bow.

Now onto the prizes:
