Creating Cards for a Rainy Day
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2015
I stepped out on my patio this morning and saw green grass sprouting up among the brown stubble – a sure sign that spring will be returning soon, bringing rain to the desert. My friend (and excellent papercrafter) Harriet Head recently called my attention to a very fun die from Memory Box called Splashing Puddles. This die cuts two very detailed splashing puddles and many raindrops with embossed “trails.”
I grabbed the die as soon as it arrived and made these samples. I have so many other ideas for fun cards, too. In fact I went on a hunt with Harriet and found other stamps, dies and papers that will go perfectly with the puddles die. You can see all the new items that are in stock or coming in the new Rainy Day category on the What’s New Page. And while you’re looking through that page, check out the cute Memory Box frogs die – perfect for any puddle! – and the Memory Box duck dies which my friend Bea Mieckowki suggested pairing with the puddles. Have fun with your papercrafting and celebrate spring!
Jump in the Puddles – Memory Box die Splashing Puddles; Penny Black clear stamp set April Showers (rain boots); Spellbinders die Labels 4; Sentiment from Savvy Stamps
Dance in the Rain – Memory Box die Splashing Puddles; Impression Obsession stamp Puddle Jump (girl with umbrella); sentiment is Tim Holtz stamp.
How fun to combine a darling little girl with the die and sentiment. They look like they were made for each other!
April Showers – (Outside of gatefold card) Memory Box die Splashing Puddles; Memory Box die Marshmallow Clouds; sentiment is Memory Box stamp; designed inspired by Hellen Pearce. Note: The silver mirror card is very hard to photograph so be assured that this card looks lots better in real life!!!
May Flowers – (Inside of gatefold card) Paper Smooches die Roses; Memory Box die Marshmallow Clouds; sentiment is Memory Box stamp
I love this new Roses die! The die set comes with both size flowers and leaves.
