Stampin' Up!  Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Color Challenge

So, I have to laugh at myself & share it with you… I made a card for this blog hop, but when I went to do all the necessary ‘work’ of plugging in the challenge, I realized I made the card for NEXT WEEKS blog hop 😀 How funny is that! So I pulled out a card I hadn’t posted yet and here we go. It’s one we are working on in card class today.

Stampin' Up! P;laying In The Rain hop 2/9

This card is made with the Playing in the Rain stamp set and the Picture This Dies + Rain or Shine DSP. It was super fun to make as the Playing In The Rain stamp set is full of cuteness.

  • Die cut the Rain or Shine DSP with the Picture This Dies. DSP is 4 x 5 1/4
  • Place this over a Basic White panel 1/8″ smaller & trace lightly the various circles. in pencil
  • Decide where & what images you want to use from the Playing In The Rain stamp set then stamp with Memento ink in the various circles. It’s ok to go outside the circle but use a post it note to cover a circle if you think it would stamp in it. see photo

  • Color images as desired. I used Stampin’ Blends Mango Melody, Cajun Craze & Old Olive for the flowers/ leaves; I used Flirty Flamingo for the rabbit and Old Olive, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze on the turtle image. I also die cut a bow tie in Basic Black using one of the balloon bow dies. 👍😀
  • Stamp the sentiment from Playing In The Rain in Smoky Slate ink
  • Erase any remaining pencil marks.
  • Now lay the die cut Rain or Shine DSP over this panel & adhere in place.
  • Put dimensionals on the back and adhere to a Smoky Slate A2 card base.
  • Add the loose Daisy Assortment to the sentiment – and the card front is done!

For the inside…

  • Stamp the fox, puddles and sentiment in Memento ink
  • Stamp the raindrops in Smoky Slate ink
  • Color the fox, umbrella and puddles with Stampin’ Blends: Cajun Craze for the umbrella, Mango Melody for the rain hat & coat, Smoky Slate for the fox and puddles
  • Add to inside of card & voila!

For the envelope… More Rain or Shine DSP on the flap trimmed to fit; and a Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend colored umbrella on the front. The umbrella is stamped in Memento ink & comes from Playing in The Rain Stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Online Exclusives

The best way to see what is available is to view my online store. Click here to go my store

And there’s no end date for the sales period! Some products will be reordered when inventory is low, and others will only be available while supplies last. This way Stampin’ Up! can offer even more new products throughout the year. New products mean new inspiration and new ways to express your creativity! Online Exclusive products will have their own category in the online store, but as a customer, you will also be able to shop kits, Branded Merchandise, and other products outside of our standard catalog offering. 

If you would like to order from my online store, that’s really easy to do. And remember to use my current HOST CODE FDBTDY26 to earn credit from me. Here’s how it works… when you place an order of $50 or more (before shipping & taxes), you receive from me a SU! item valued up to $10 + Star-Studded Rewards. If your order exceeds $150, do not use my HOST CODE as SU! has it’s own rewards from which you may choose. You will still receive that FREE ITEM valued up to $10 from me + the Star-Studded Rewards. 😁👍 Please note… I have had to remove card stock as a free item due to increased cost of mailing – ugh.

For every $50 that you order from my online store (before shipping & taxes) and when you add my current Host Code, you will earn 1 STAR Reward.  Orders of $49.99 or below DO NOT earn any rewards.Example $50 = 1 STAR Reward, $100 = 2 STAR Rewards , $150 = 3 STAR Rewards etc. When you have earned 8 STAR Rewards you will get a FREE product order valued up to $40.00, your choice, and mailed directly to you! Is that a deal or what??? You also earn my monthly Online Class Tutorial of exclusive projects when you place an order. For any order $50 or more you will also receive 1 free gift from me valued up to $10. Remember to use MY current HOST CODEFDBTDY26. Click here to go my store. Note: Make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout so you know you’re ordering from me. 😀
