More showers..

So another 15th of the month has been and gone! I was determined to be good this month but as soon as I saw the releases yesterday morning I caved in! Such fabulous and versatile sets, trouble is, I want them on my doorstep today!!!

In the meantime I’m still loving this Scattered Showers set and it seems quite appropriate given the rain over the past few days…

Recipe:

Stamps – Scattered Showers
Ink – Aqua Mist/Sweet Blush

Card – Kraft/Dark Chocolate
Paper – 2008 Bitty Dots in Aqua Mist and Sweet Blush

Ribbon – Dark Chocolate Satin
Other – Vintage Buttons – Dark Chocolate/Scallop Border Punch (SU)

For the next card I used some Clearly Creative Cardstock – stamped the polka dots on with Palette Ink (I know Stazon is the best to use for this purpose but for health reasons I can’t use it due to it’s solvent content) Palette works fine, you just have to allow it to dry 😉

I realised the hard way that Papertrey’s Fresh Snow Ink (pigment) definitely won’t work with clear cardstock – unless you want an abstract smeary mess of white ink on your card and hands!


The cute brolly was paper pieced with Raspberry Fizz Bitty Dots Paper. I love the effect of the clear card and am really going to try to use it more often.

Recipe:

Stamps – Scattered Showers
Ink – Dark Chocolate/Palette New Canvas

Card – Clearly Creative Cardstock/Stamper’s Select White/Raspberry Fizz

Paper – 2008 Bitty Dots in Raspberry Fizz

Other – Petite Oval Nestabilities/Scallop Oval and Large Oval Punches (SU)

Thanks as always for visiting, as we’re approaching 10,000 hits there may soon be some fun blog candy up for grabs;)
