Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring "Playing in the Rain"



Happy Tuesday Blogger Friends!  Hope everyone is having a great week! I'm excited to announce that we have a new nephew in the family...Baby Nicco!  He was born over the weekend and is so very precious! We have yet to meet him in person but we are hoping to do that really soon!

So today is the Tuesday Loves Rubberstamps Challenge!!! The challenge this week is "April Showers"!

Our wonderful sponsors for the week are Eureka Stamps and Paper Nest Dolls!

                             

Here is my card...


I thought this Paper Nest Dolls image called "Playing in the Rain" was perfect for this week's challenge.  I had so much fun coloring up my image with my Copic Sketch Markers and I loved using so many colors!  The design paper I used is a collection called Fabulous by Simple Stories.  This collection is so pretty and I've used it on a lot of my recent cards.  I made a handmade banner  with the DP, which  I stamped my sentiment "Happy Day" on  it with Memento ink in Black Tuxedo.  I also used the Jumbo Scallop Die from MFT as borders. I  edged all my papers using my Tim Holtz distress ink in Pumice Stone.  The large orange flower is from I Am Roses.  These petals were originally white and I sprayed them up with my Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Apricot and Tiger Lily.  I added a large brad in the center which I had in my stash.  The two small orange roses are from Recollections as well as the small rhinestone hearts on the side of my image.  The trim is from Frog Feathers on Etsy and the white trim layered on that is from Scrapbooking With Me on Zibbet.

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store.  So enter your projects for "April Showers". I would love to see them!

Hope you all like my card for the week!  Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by to visit! :)

  10. Hey Marcy, I like how you brought this image to life. The raincoat and umbrella look awesome. I didn't have the patients to work with that image, lol. Love it.
    Congrats on the Baby. My Son wants me to have a Brother for him but, My days ended a couple of years ago. I tell him to wait for a Nephew but my Daughters keeps having girls, lol.
