This past weekend I signed up for a class at Impress Cards & Crafts in Tukwilla, WA, celebrating Pretty Pink Posh’s 4th Birthday. I had such a great time. I met Paulina, the owner of PPP, and listened to her story of how her company came about. I also met 2 ladies from her design team, Crystal and Heather. They both were gracious and eager to share their crafting skills. I really enjoyed my time with them. I also enjoyed my shopping experience in the store that hosted the party/class. The store was stocked with so many cute stamps! I picked out a few Pretty Pink Posh items I didn’t have yet… and then I saw this rain boot stamp. I knew I had to have it. Living in the Pacific Northwest most of my life, I am attracted to anything that pertains to the rainy season here. There was an adorable card next to it showing a rain cloud and raining hearts. I had enough items in my personal stash at home to make my interpretation of the showcased card.
So first off, let me say what products I used: Inspire by Spellbinders Umbrella Trio die; Neat & Tangled Falling Hearts stamp; Impresscardsandcrafts.com Heart Rainboots; Pretty Pink Posh Thoughtful Greetings stamp set; MY Favorite Things Stitched Stax Set 2; Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink; Neenah Classic Crest solar White 80lb cardstock.
Assembling the card:
I First stamped the rainboot in the bottom right corner of the cardfront. I placed the umbrella die over the boots. I also used a rectangle die to crop the cardfront. After running the cardfront through my die cut machine, I then stamped the falling hearts above the umbrella window, and the sentiment to the left of the umbrella.
Next I cut another umbrella out of grey cardstock. I snipped off the inside lines so I had a small opening to make a shaker card. I inlaid the grey umbrella on the card front. on the backside I closed the umbrella window up with acetate, and then wrapped thin foam tape around the window.
I added some Pretty Pink Posh iridescent heart confetti in the window, and closed it up with a small piece of paper. I added the same dimension fun foam around the rest of the back, and adhered it to a card base. I made three of these cards at the same time. I’m in love with this stamp! I see a lot of envelopes being decorated with it in the near future.
Thanks for stopping by!
