It's Raining!

Hi Everyone,

again, I lucked out combining challenges...
As soon as I saw the inspiration picture over at Inkspirational I knew I needed to play with them. and then things just fell into place.
Less is More wants lots of white space, but no white
Just us Girls wants raindrops
and Sparkle and Shine offers an umbrella, although theirs has colorful polka dots, oh well, mine does not.


Here is that cool photo:


I took that cool umbrella stamp from Joy Clair, did some masking and sponging on grey card stock. The raindrops are by Impression obsession and the sentiment is by Papertrey.


So, what  do you think - is that a perfect coincidence???


It's not raining now, but its coming - so - keep stamping!

Don't you just love it when that happens? The most perfect card for the challenges. The bold yellow and black photo inspiration is so striking and no wonder you wanted to join in. Absolutely fabulous take and would never have thought to start on the grey card, so thank you for the inspiration x Great sentiment too.

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
