Kathryn from Creations With Kathryn is having a fabulous April Showers Blog Hop this weekend and I have been asked to participate in it. We will be hopping the whole weekend away in our rain boots and coats, anticipating April Showers and "singing" in the rain. I hope you play along with us. I am sure there is going to be some wonderful inspiration, projects and of course giveaways falling down with the raindrops for you to win.
If you popped into my blog this weekend to see what I was doing I would like to encourage to play along in the April Showers Blog Hop and go to Creations With Kathryn to begin, if you came here from Jennifer's Creative Army Wife then you are doing the hop in the right order.
I used the Rain and Shine stamp from Unity and Kaisercraft LaDiDa paper to create both of my cards.
This first card is a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square card. I did both of the stamped images using my Copic Markers: V15, V17, R27, R29, B95, B97, B00, B02, G12, G14, R83 and R 85. On this card I did my zig zag stitching using my sewing machine and layered my stamped image on red card stock. the circles are just a strip from the Kaisercraft paper. I did place one of the circles on a pop dot to give just a little dimension to the stripe of paper. The sticker sentiment is from Paper Studios.My second card is also from the Kaisercraft LaDiDa paper and the Rain and Shine Unity Stamp. The card is an A2 card that I rounded the right side corners off. I ink the edges of the card pieces with Chestnut Roan ink before I adhered them into place. I also used the Tim Holtz distress tool and roughed up my red card mat that I backed m stamped image on. My sentiments for this card and arrow are both from SRM Stickers Summer collection. My flower is from the Kaisercraft LaDiDa papers and I placed it on a pop dotI hope you enjoy my April Shower cards and I would love to know if you or someone you loved ever played in the rain, I remember as a girl if it was just a soft rain my parents would let us get our swimsuits on and play in it and we would get so muddy and laugh so hard. This is one of my most favorite memories. Your next stop on the hop is with Michelle at Peanut Butter & Jelly Designs.
