rain or shine stamp so fun for me is it is big enough to paper piece easily. The plaid on this version is from the new lawn fawn pad of plaid papers. the pink mulberry is unknown and the bottom print is from Basic grey. So, you see that tiny get well? ( that is a ooops, its coming in one of next weeks new release sets) This is also the card that almost didn't happen, I have those clear Tim Holtz diffusers that are for putting into an embossing folder to make part of your paper not emboss. So, I have this SU embossing folder that is supposed to look like snow falling and I thought you know some of this rain comes down Splat huge. lets try to use this diffuser plastic under the umbrella to keep the rain from falling in that particular part of the card. It kinda sorta worked (not as well as I would have liked) and then I decided to add some stickles glitter glue to the embossed dents where the rain was and there are also some drops over the plaid on the umbrella too. (It's hard to see) There is also some wink of stella over the marker parts of the handle of the umbrella. I don't remember which color it is, something that's lid looked close enough to the spring rain colored cardstock. This one is 6" square in real life.
off to the far left are some really big poppy's that were water colored over the weekend and were stuck under the misti after they were mostly dry for pressing. The "coffee" has some hot cocoa in it...
one of the umbrella cards from last weeks loot pile went live here. and a second will follow tomorrow.
What that card looks like standing. the burlap flower I forget who makes it and the lace is vintage and I "think" that printed paper is from Basic Grey. This one is 6" square in real life ( as are the two below)
From the March new release at Two Paper Diva's is this cute set Rain or Shine which has this really fun sized umbrella ( big enough to paper piece) with 4 sentiments. All of these printed paper are from My Minds eye. ( the red strip is the reverse side of the stripe front piece) I did use an lacey square spellbinders die for the mat and one of the 6" square mat dies for the image panel. The sentiment was diecut with an nellie snellen tag die.
This I masked in the flower from the bloom wildly watering can stamp.
as seen below. this was colored with some distress ink markers and water, with yellow stickles in the centers of the flowers.
the umbrella had been stamped on sticky notes and placed over where the color would be and then the flowers were inked and then I placed a few pieces of clear scotch tape on the stamp where there was ink that I did not want to stray into the design. ( I tend to color more things than I paper piece and when I did this I was thinking to color the umbrella) I am guessing if you knew in the beginning that you were going to paper piece you probably would not have to mask off the umbrella because, that part would be covered with paper later.
Which you can see below.
The interesting part of this shot is, you really get the effect that I am stamping in a cave up there yes? ( I really am most of the time) and I do have a third ott light near/above the big shot that is a floor model I can bend around and shine at that left side of the table as needed but, I wasn't there to play just to show you all a peek so, I didn't turn on that third light.
also on the left is a card I did for VSN on monday that was for having Mixed Media Hair. that I have not gotten to blogging yet. ( thought I would have time to make the last three tuesday and wednesday haha. I either have to make that drive again today or tomorrow. as yesterday was a emergency pit stop ice pick up until my regular order arrives)
these are both A-2 in real life.
the balloons are from SU and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.
The image is from Crafters Companion. ( it was a goof on Amazon the Penny black cat with the birdcage scene humorous stamp set had its picture on the words that would give you this scene... so, I decided to keep it even though I did leave them a comment that perhaps they should put the correct stamp photo onto their right purchases so, it doesn't happen to someone else.
I know I know... and I really don't have anything "science" for images... when I googled that I kept seeing Halloween sets with breakers of poisons and spiders all over them. I did find one set from maybe lawn fawn or someone but, it was a little too young I think. ( well, I never met any of these kids so, my brain says no, that set is too cute)
So, some of the choices the man will have to choose from also include some of the water colored blooms from the previous post for the older girl.
I would rather see the textile things like ribbons and lace on cards.
The theme for this current VSN is Here comes the sun.
Michelle had a do a vintage theme challenge and I have you know piles of things I had made in the past ( heat embossed) or things I colored and did not use at the time in a box. so, this melted pearls butterfly ( Savvy Stamps ) was done for one of the previous Dare to get dirties or HYCCT challenges and it was an extra that was not used and not discarded. same thing with the thank you sentiment from Concord & 9th.
I love chucks and I have a pair of pink lowtops actually that I wear on sunshiny days. But, June recently took an order from someone that was for 10 teenager cards... and since I did not meet the person or get any kind of a feel for what they are really after I have randomly been working on this list (that was very little to go on) to complete this for him so, this card was done for that. I think this could be given to a teenager ?
I think there are like 4 more to go, but it will depend on if I can tweak them to suit other cards I need to make as to if I will get them done before the deadline next weekend. (are you playing along? you can find the details here:
