Vicki-DDLovesMeNot-June7

I have used the Loves Me Loves Me Not digital stamp to create my card.

What I had in mind when making this card was all of that crazy rain we were having this past month and how it seemed to never end.  I also loved the flowers she was holding because my daisies came up in my back yard and they really make me happy seeing them bloom.  So I combined this image with some rainfall in the background and took away the petals from the image to make it appear as if she’s holding out her hand in the rain!  🙂  Hubby has been taking extra great care of me while all of this rain was happening around us and I think this would be a special card for someone who always seems to bring out that happy sunshine no matter the weather!  (His favorite color is blue!)  Wink wink

Here’s a closer view of the coloring I’ve done on her with Copics.  For the background, I’ve taken a white panel and stamped some rain drops from another stamp set in my stash.  I fussy cut out my colored image and attached her over top of that rain panel.  I took some Nuvo Glitter Drops and added them over the rain drops in the background behind her.  I also white heat embossed the sentiment (From MFT) and cut it out with a banner die and slipped that under her foot when placing it on my card.

It’s hard to tell in the photo, but I’ve covered her bow and top of her hair with a glitter pen to make it look like she’s been wet in the rain.

For the rest of my card, I’ve added the raindrop background light blue stitched scallop card panel over a dark blue layer and attached some pink ribbon around them.  I’ve added the bow to the side and then attached a yellow enamel heart over that.  These panels were mounted over an A2 sized white top folding card base.

Lastly, I’ve added the image panel and mounted it over the yellow scalloped panel and another piece of dark blue cardstock that was attached with foam tape.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed my card today and it brought you a smile!  Thank you so much for stopping by with me today!  I will be having another really super fun post to share with you tomorrow, be sure to stop by!

Brightening A Rainy Day

Hello friends!  Are you longing for that rainy Springtime showers with lots of flowers because you’re tired of snow?  I know that I’ve been wanting Spring to get here very soon!  I thought I’d bring some of that feeling into my blog post this morning:

Vicki-SNSMayShowersBundle-Feb20-card3

It’s my turn to post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog today…so CLICK HERE to check it out if you want to see my post there or you can read details below too!

I started out with my images from these gorgeous stamp sets that were released as a bundle set from Sparkle N Sprinkle this month called May Showers Spring Bundle.  (They are rubber stamp sets which contain both the Showers of Tulips rubber stamp set as well as the May Showers rubber stamp set.  You get a slight discount when you buy the bundle set of them.  There are also digital versions with the May Showers Bundle Digi Set as well as the individual Showers of Tulips digi and the May Showers digi.)

I wanted to incoporate both of these rubber stamp sets into my design, so I heat embossed the parasol image from the Showers of Tulips set and the bows from the May Showers set with SNS White EP over some Bristol Smooth Watercolor paper.  I colored them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them out with my scissors and set them aside.

For the background panel, I took another piece of watercolor paper and spritzed it with water to get it good and wet before sprinkling on some Nuvo Blue Blitz Shimmer Powder.  I spritzed it again to really get the water moving around and manipulted the panel so that I could get the water drips going down the panel.  Once this dried, I cut it out with the Tonic Basics Scalloped Square Dies.

Using my cut out parasol image for placement, I heat embossed the sentiment from the May Showers stamp set with the SNS Coffee EP where I wanted it over the watercolor panel.  I then took the raindrops image from the same stamp set and stamped it with VersaMark ink repeatedly over the background and heat embossed it with that SNS Magic Speckle EP.  (Remember this gorgeous pearly sheen it gave to my Winter Deer card from last week?  I told you that I would be bringing it back out for another project!  I am loving the look it gave the raindrops here.  Don’t forget that this powder is a tad bit thicker than normal embossing powder, so heat from underneath your project to help melt it so it doesn’t blow all over.)  I’ve also added some Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops to the center of each drop for more dimension and shine to get a nice wet water look to it!  This was set aside to dry for a bit.

I took another piece of cardstock (slightly larger than the watercolor panel) and rubbed my VersaMark Ink pad along the edges to heat emboss it with the SNS Coffee EP.  I attached these layers together and then glued some craft foam behind it for dimension.

I’ve used a blue 5″ square top folding card base for my design and took a piece of white doily I had from my stash and glued it on with some SNS Dimensional Glue.  I then added a strip of white cardstock covered with a piece of 1/2″ Tear-iffic Tape going diagnolly across the card base and burnished some Sunny Daze glitter over it.

Finally I added the watercolor and embossed layers over top of the card base and then took my fussy cut images and added them to the design with some foam dots.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Spring Showers card today and it’s inspired you in some way!  I thank you SO MUCH for dropping in!  I appreciate all of the kind comments and a big welcome to my new followers…love meeting fellow crafty friends!!
