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!
