Happy Easter from a Playing in the Rain Bunny!


I made this card a while ago when I was using dies as stencils. You can see in this card that there is 2 different colors behind the Framed Floret dies. Using the die as a stencil, I was able to use two different colors. Here’s my video on that:



I die cut the bunny from the Rain or Shine DSP with the Playing in the Rain dies. He’s so cute and his shirt is shiny!

I die cut the tree stump with Sahara Sand cardstock.

For the frames, I used Basic White and Pear Pizzazz.

The sentiment is from the Easter Bunny stamp set.

For the background, I also die cut the Framed Florets from the middle of the Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I wanted the frame to have a different background than the rest of the card. I then embossed the Pear Pizzazz with the Painted Posies embossing folder.

I used Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody ink with my Blending Brushes for the colors behind the frames.

Spring is Everywhere!

Playing in the Rain can be used for lots of cards- even a spring/Easter one!

We made this card in my last class. Isn’t that bunny so cute and looks so happy?

I stamped the bunny and the flowers with Memento. The bunny was colored with Pool Party and Petal Pink Blends. The flowers were colored with Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green Blends. The center of the flowers were colored with the Mango Melody Write Marker.

The tree stump was die cut with Sahara Sand cardstock.

I decided to use the Rain or Shine DSP for my background. The Mango Melody flowers are so bright and cheerful. It looked to be too much as I started to assemble, so I decided to use the Split Card Textures dies with Basic White to tone it down a bit. I then embossed the paper with the Raindrops Embossing Folder. I added Wink of Stella to all the raindrops.

The sentiment is from the Friendly Gnomes stamp set. I stamped with Mango Melody ink on Basic White and then punched out with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.

Behind the circle, I die cut one of the Stylish Shapes dies with Pool Party cardstock.

I added a Glossy Dot and a bow made with the Baker’s Twine to the circle.

The cards looks like it has a lot going on, but it was pretty easy to make. Those Split Card Textures dies are awesome!

A Turtle with a Heart!

We made this card in my classes last week. It was a favorite of many people!

I love that Playing in the Rain can be used for so many types of cards. That cute little turtle is holding a flower, but after stamping and die cutting, you cut a piece of it off and add the heart die from the Love for You Dies.

We colored him just with Mossy Meadow blends.

The “Love You” dies were cut with Basic White and Sweet Sorbet. The heart behind the Love You is from the Country Bouquet Punch with Mossy Meadow paper.

The Split Card Textures dies are one of my favorites. I made the cherry card with it. When I was designing this card, I wanted some thing in the corner/left side. This die with the Country Floral Lane DSP behind it is perfect for a love card!

The stump is from the Playing in the Rain dies. We used Soft Suede cardstock.

Here’s everything we used:

Rain or Shine? Faith over Fear!


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!
