After the rain…

Posted by on January 1, 2013 in Flowers | 2 comments

I came across a great card by Melissa Davies on our Stampin’ Connection and was inspired to create a similar one:

We’ve had a LOT of rain over the past few weeks (a lot for where we are in California 🙂 but the sun is out and there’s not a cloud in sight!  While I do love the rain, I am so happy for the warmth and sunshine – what a great way to start the new year 🙂

The Spring Mini catalog is due out in a couple of days and it’s easy to get crazy with all the new products but I also try to remember the older sets in my stash.  This card is a nice way to blend the old with the new 🙂  I really love Pool Party and am going to miss it when it goes away at the end of May. 

Stamps: Bootiful Occasions
Ink: Midnight Muse, Pool Party
Paper: Pool Party, Certainly Celery, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
Accessories: Embossing folders (Vine Street, Framed Tulips, Cloudy Day), Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Crystal Effects, Bird Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack

Have a great day!

  1. So cute! Did you use crystal effects to get the boots glossy?

  2. Hi Cali! Yes, I used Crystal Effects on the boot – took awhile to dry. I think I might try covering the boot image with Versamark and embossing with Clear Embossing Powder – that way I wouldn’t have to wait so long for it to dry 🙂
