Today we are introducing to you It's Raining. I love this little set. There are so many possibilities :) I wanted to share with you two cards I made. First up - this card....
I stamped out the super cute umbrella from this set on a scalloped circle, and then paper- pieced the umbrella top, and handle using some patterned papers from Echo Park. I, then stamped out this beautiful sentiment onto vellum card stock in Staz- On ink. I chose vellum, because I didn't want to cover up my cloud back ground which is also patterned paper from the same pad from Echo Park. I heat embossed the rain drops in white. I added three gem stones for a little bit of "bling" to the sentiment, and one for the top of the umbrella.
Then I couldn't stop there. I was having so much fun, and on a roll creating with this set that I used some "scraps" that were left over, and came up with this card as well.
For this card, I used up what was left of my cloud background paper and stamped, then heat embossed the rain drops this time in silver for something different. I had some white card stock left from when I die cut my first scalloped circle and I stamped my sentiment again, and punch it out with a circle punch, then took a smaller circle punch and created scallops on the bottom, to make the circle look like an umbrella. I thought the sentiment was so neat looking in an "umbrella" shape. I stamped out the handle from the umbrella stamp onto vellum and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I popped up with umbrella onto my strip of clouds and cut a "banner" edge at the bottom. To finish it off, I added some yellow bakers twine from The Twinery, and a few gem stones. The background paper is from that same Echo Park stack.
So two different ways to showcase this cute and fun set.
