Hello everyone! I posted a card and video (late) last night - you can check it out by scrolling down or slicking HERE.
While I was waiting for the video to load (for the millionth time yesterday), I decided to put my time to good use and make a card. I didn't film this one - I was rather PO'd at the whole video/time/uploading/internet and just needed to sit and craft LOL!
And then of course once the card was done I wished I'd filmed it:
I used the new Roberto's Rascals Splish Splash image and paired it with the new CCD Cloudy Skies stamp and my Rainy Day Sentiments.
I pulled out my MFT Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics for the main images and used the Sunshine Die-namics to back the sentiment (that I punched out from card stock using a 1 1/8" circle punch).
The ribbon is old SU Baja Breeze ribbon I've had in my stash for years - it was the closest blue I had to go with the lighter blue in the patterned paper. I sealed off the edges of the ribbon with a lighter (see the end of this post for the quick tip video I did ages ago showing how to do that).
I used Copics to color in the images, and then went over the water/rain/clouds and the card stock the sentiment was stamped on with my Wink of Stella Clear. After that I went over the rain and the puddle with my Glossy Accents to make it glossy - fun!
I lined the inside of the card with more patterned paper and stamped the Splish Splash image again (this time with MFT Sno Cone ink - another "go-to" favorite of mine) onto white card stock that was die cut the same as the front.
I stamped another sentiment from the Rainy Day Sentiments set onto the yellow card stock and punched it out and backed it with the Sunshine Die-namics.
I don't know why but I LOVE making rainy day/umbrella/sunshiney/cheer up cards - ESPECIALLY when at the moment we're getting hit with a ton of SNOW!
Here's the video I mentioned earlier:
