Here is a very quick and simple card using the stamp set called Weather Together. This set is in the Annual Catalog and has a set of matching Framelits called Umbrella Weather. Obviously, this stamp set could be used for a wedding or baby shower but it also could be used for other occasions such as get well, or thinking of you or even a sympathy card. The Framelits make it adorable.
Speaking of showers, have I told you yet that I am going to have another grand daughter? I am so excited. Emory Jade is due to arrive in March (actually March 4th which is Rob’s birthday). I am not sure where all these girls are coming from since I only had boys but either one is really fine with me. I get to buy girl things for Madelyn and now for Emory. Now all I have to do is get Zachary and Mary (Emory’s parents) to move closer to me because Alabama is just too far away!
Here is another way to use the stamp set called Swirly Bird. If you look at the set, there are a couple of weird looking stamps. It took me a while to figure out what they were for. I finally inked them up and stamped them to see if I could figure it out. I realized when you put the two of them together, they make a kite! Isn’t that clever? The set also includes the tiny little bows that you can put on the kite string.
The cloud shapes came from the set of Framelits called Umbrella Weather. If you don’t have that set (why would you not have it?) you could always cut the clouds out by hand. Seems like a lot of work to me, so you really need to buy that set too!
Lastly the sentiment comes from the stamp set called Thoughtful Banners. All of these items are in the 2016 Annual Catalog.
The web site Fab Friday has a fun sketch challenge this week so I decided to participate. I always look for sketch challenges when I am stuck creating. For me, it is the best way to get myself back on track. I like Fab Friday because the sketches are usually CAS (clean and simple) which is how I normally stamp.
I used the stamp set called Weather Together to make this card. This set has matching Framelits called Umbrella Weather and you can save 10% if you buy them in a Bundle. The Designer Series Paper is called Blooms & Bliss. Speaking of Designer Series Paper, have you looked at this year’s choices? They are all awesome!
