Spring Showers

This sweet image if from a Beccy's Place digi set named Stanley in the Rain. You can find it HERE.  I paper pieced Stanley's slicker using the same process I used on a rain slicker card yesterday. [Just pop back one day and "read all about it."] The clouds are cut from vellum. The chipboard sentiment on the front is from my scrapbook stash and the inside sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC. You can find it HERE

If you've followed my blog for very long, you'll know that I like using vellum. Found this beautiful holly vellum in a card making kit at a thrift store a few years ago. I love its subtle elegance, which plays a nice backdrop to the super blingy embellishment that a friend gave to me a few months ago. I slid a filigree die cut the vellum to add a bit more interest and did the same with a small Hope die.[Sorry, I don't know who makes the two die cuts since I removed them from the package a while ago and attached them on a magnetic base.]  The inside sentiment is from a Beccy's Place digi set named Lamb of God. You can find it HERE
Am entering this card into a few challenges including If You Give a Crafter a Cookie-'s  "Festive Sprinkles." The little red rhinestones I attached to the vellum holly berries resemble the sprinkles and the lettering style of the die cut and the lettering on the cookie look similar.]

  1. Hi Kathy your cards are stunning. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Two fabulous cards Kathy, well done!
    I love the way you've coloured Stanley and his raincoat. The vellum clouds are an awesome addition, they layer beautifully and give such a great effect. The rainbow is a nice addition too.
    Your second card is lovely, all the vellum you used looks wonderful. You're very good at designing projects that take full advantage of whatever you're using... the swirl behind the vellum is a great example. Love the bling embellishment you added. Fabulous!

  3. Hi Kathy, I like how you use vellum in different ways (I find it difficult to use). Your spring showers card is fabulous and DID make me smile. Thanks for sharing your work with us at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies, CarolG
