Weather Together Baby Shower Card for WWYS #111

Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week we’ve been challenged to use the Weather Together stamp set. I needed a card for my niece’s baby shower, and the umbrella was perfect! Here’s my card:

As we already know that the baby is a girl, I went for shades of pink and also added green. I started by stamping some clouds on the Whisper White panel and then added some clouds die-cut from Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper which I had sponged in a couple of shades of pink and using the co-ordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies. I then stamped the umbrella handle in Pear Pizzazz ink at the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock panel and topped it with a die-cut umbrella (from Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper) and a scalloped trim from Blushing Bride cardstock. The tiny hearts were die-cut from the Umbrella Weather  dies in Blushing Bride and Real Red, and I also used some sweetheart-shaped hearts (the fatter ones) that I had in my stash. Some were glued and others were elevated using rolled up Mini Glue Dots.

The sentiment is from the now retired Moon Baby Stamp Set from the recent Occasions Catalogue. It was white heat embossed on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and along with the umbrella, popped up with dimensionals. The finished touch was a coating of clear Wink of Stella on the hearts, followed by a layer of gloss using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

Rainbow Card Using Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set for WWYS #87

Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set. I have to admit, I avoided using this set because there are 101 (yep! 101) stamps in this set and the thought of losing one of those little buggers kinda freaked me out! But I was very careful to put each one back in the case after I’d used it, so it’s all good. 🙂

Here’s the stamp set pic:



I started with the idea of using an inspirational phrase for this card so browsed Google and found the words you see on the front of the card. So then the rainbow became the focal point. This was made simply using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies in “a rainbow” of cardstock colours. The words were stamped on three of the these colours to tie in with the rebus image. I added some Wink of Stella to the Smoky Slate raindrops from the Weather Together Stamp Set. It was a very simple card to put together but I think you’ll agree it packs a punch. Let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.


Remember to check out all the “alphabetical” inspiration over at the WWYS Challenge blog.
