Hello and Happy Hump Day again! Are you having an awesome week?? I hope so! We've had wonderful weather here which is always nice! As usual on Wednesday, I'm over with the Paper Craft Crew! This week I'm super excited because I worked out a way to combine the sketch challenge with some fun new Hero Arts goodies that just arrived in the mail!!
So I had some good news and bad news. I recently subscribed to the My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts and I loved the February Kit so much that I had to order some of the add ons. The bad news was that since I subscribed on 1/24, I didn't get the February kit because the cut off was the 23rd! I was super bummed not to get that fabulous kit but I wouldn't change a thing with these fabulous add on sets and dies. I adore them! Today, I'm using the Hero Arts Raining Cats and Dogs! Stamp Set and the coordinating Raining Fluff Dies as well as the Nesting Clouds Infinity Dies!
So of course I had to take a little artistic liberty to change out the large rectangle to a large cloud and the small oval to a small cloud.... and then of course the stars to cats and dogs.. lol I started out with a 110# Neenah Crest Classic Solar White Cardbase that measured 8 1/2 x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". Next I layered on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Stampin' Up! Soft Sky Cardstock that had been embossed with my Taylored Expressions Raindrops Embossing Folder. I used 80# Neenah Crest Classic Solar White to cut out my Clouds. The rain drops were stamped in Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink. I used a Ranger detail aqua painter to add more of the Broken China Ink inside the raindrop. Once dry, I added some Ranger Glossy Accents. I sponged the edge of the clouds with more of the Broken China Distress Ink and attached to the raindrop layer with Foam Tape. All of the animals were stamped onto more of the 80# Neenah Crest Classic Solar White Cardstock with MFT Black Hybrid Ink. I cut them out with the Raining Fluff Dies and then used my Clear Wink of Stella to pick up ink from my Stampin' Up! markers to color in the animals. I adhered them with a fine tip glue pen. I used a mini glue dot to attach the sequin trip and the little silver cord bow on the upper left side of the cloud. I hope you love this card half as much as I do! Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings, Tina
