Playing in the Rain from Stampin’ Up can be used for so many cards!
First, I embossed Smoky Slate cardstock with the Raindrops Embossing Folder. I actually used Versamark on the folder before embossing, to make my rain drops a little shiny. I used the side where the drops are not embossed- not sticking up-the side where they sink a little bit.
I then stamped some clouds (from the Playing in the Rain stamp set) with Smoky ink on Basic White. I used my Blender Pen with Smoky to add some color to the middle.
I die cut the fox from the Rain or Shine DSP.
I wanted a hill or grass for the fox to walk on. One of the dies from Around the Bend worked perfect. I used Mossy Meadow cardstock. I added some Wink of Stella to give it a wet look.
I just couldn’t decided on what sentiment to use. I looked through my stuff and I saw the “Faith over Fear” in the Charming Sentiments. I thought it was perfect- here’s a happy fox in terrible weather!
I loved the North Pole Mischief stamp set when I first saw it. I decided to make a big shaker card with the dog and the cat stamp.
I stamped the stamp in the middle of the paper with Memento ink. I colored the cat with Smoky Slate, the dog with Crumb Cake, the ribbon with Sweet Sorbet and the box with Pool Party. All Blends markers.
The sentiment was stamped with Sweet Sorbet ink and then die cut with the Stitched Rectangles.
Here’s my video on how to make the big shaker cards- it’s pretty easy!
I put the negative piece, from the Yeti card, on Basic White. I then die cut two of the Stitched Rectangles dies to make a frame using Tahitian Tide paper. I then used the Picture This die on scrap glimmer paper- just putting enough paper under the different circles. I used the Spruced Up Outlines dies with the White glimmer (from the mini) for the tops of the ornaments.
I added a few more ornaments on the card- ones that didn’t fit inside one of the empty circles.
I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Scottie on white with Tahitian Tide ink. I die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.
The ribbon on the side is the really pretty Metallic Woven Ribbon in the main catalog.
I wanted to make my pig ride by on hill with water nearby. So, here’s what I came up with! 😂
I used lots of dies on this card. Obviously the Birthday Piggy dies (only 10 days left to get it!). I also used the Waterfall Canyon dies (again, only 10 more days) for the grass, the Basic Borders for the water, and the Gingerbread House for the hills.
I first used my Blending Brushes with Balmy Blue for the sky and Bermuda Bay for the water.
I added the Embossing paste on the water like I’ve done in many cards, but I also used the Paste for clouds. What I did was die cut two clouds from the Waves Dies, then used that a stencil with the Paste. ⬇️
These pigs are so dang cute! Here’s the video on how I make the ocean:
We made this card at one of my classes. It’s so pretty and doesn’t take long!
When you die cut the window from window wishes, the inside piece comes out and you can use that for the window, or for something else. I first did a light Balmy Blue background, then stamped the trees (also from Window Wishes) with Early Espresso and Garden Green. I then added some snow with the puff paint.
I wanted to make the window look like it was inside a house looking out. The pretty Petal Pink DSP is from the host DSP Design a Daydream. If you place an order over $150, I suggest getting that paper. You can use it for lots of cards!
On the bottom, I had a piece of Basic White that was 4 x 1.5. I scored every 1/4″ using the Simply Scored. It makes it look like beadboard! I then placed a very small piece (4 x 1/4) of white on top.
For the sentiment, I used the Christmas Banners. You can stamp the sentiment and the banner before die cutting, but Ii did it different. First, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white powder. I then die cut it. Then, using Petal Pink ink, I stamped the banner. It’s hard to get it on there perfectly, but I liked the way it looked.
You may have seen the video of me making a background that was a sunset and an ocean. I showed this card in that video. I have made other cards that have palm trees with “lights” on them. Reminds me of one of my favorite commercials- The Corona beer one around Christmas time.
Here’s the video of me making the background (there’s two- one very quick and one longer):
This card just used one kind of paper- Basic White! I don’t think I’ve ever done that before!
The palms from the Palms Dies were die cut and one flipped over- so they would lean towards each other. I colored them with Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green.
For the rhinestones, I used the red ones and the basic ones. For the basic ones, I colored them with the Shaded Spruce Dark Blend.
The sentiment is from Sunkissed and die cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.
The birds are from the Waves dies.
Love these types of cards! (as you can probably tell since I’ve made so many!)
When I look at apples, I think of teachers. So when the dies came out (only here until 9/30), I knew I wanted to make a thank you card that would be great for a teacher! And using the die from the Blossoming Happiness dies, I knew I had to make one of the backgrounds look like notebook paper!
