Hi everybody! yep, it’s raining here and it’s our youngest daughter’s birthday which got me to thinking about cards and the Muse Challenge that I’ve been wanting to jump in on this week!
I love Michele’s card and was inspired by her element popped up in the corner of the rectangle. I left my rectangle kinda big cuz I didn’t want to cut off that much of the die but I kinda wish I would’ve now. Oops, I added a layer and forgot the sentiment was on a banner. I should’ve sent myself the picture and had it up on my phone I guess. Can’t trust my brain! lol
I used some dies I haven’t used very much so that was fun.
The Umbrella is from Magnolia Sweden (I don’t see it in stock in any of the US online stores, you can probably order it directly from Magnolia Sweden though)… the scallop stitched rectangle is from My Favorite Things… the rain background and stitched rectangle are Memory Box and the boots are from Paper Smooches. I stamped the boots with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink on the mini MISTI. I stamped and cut out a mask and inked the inside of the boots with Evergreen Bough and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks.
The next card I made for stamp club here. The theme was April Showers Bring May Flowers, so puddles with splashes just seemed like fun! All the stamps and the die are from Paper Smooches. The stitched rectangle die is Memory Box. The polka dot paper is My Favorite Things, the Lollipop and Cookie Monster layer and card-base are Taylored Expressions.
and a close up … splish splash…
It’s interesting to see the difference in the background colors of the photos. The welcome Spring card pictures were from Friday a.m. when the sun was shining… the umbrella card was late afternoon today with no sun but plenty of light.
Both cards are A-2 size.
Thanks for looking at my Spring cards! I appreciate it! Have a good week!
Here’s shopping links to what I used…
