I used the Stampin’ Up! Playing In The Rain stamp set bundle from the upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog to create a quick and easy friend card to share with you today.
My card design was inspired by Global Design Project #GDP374.
I started by adhering a panel of Rain Or Shine Specialty DSP (available Jan 5) to a panel of Basic White card stock with Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I placed one of the Stylish Shapes Dies on a panel of Rain Or Shine DSP, traced around the edges of the die with a pencil lightly and then snipped around the traced lines. I cut the panel of DSP with the same Stylish Shapes Die and adhered it to a panel of Balmy Blue card stock with Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Playing In The Rain stamp set (available Jan 5) in VersaMark ink on a panel of Balmy Blue card stock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders and then heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Stampin’ Seal to the card front. I added two of the Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots (available Jan 5) near the sentiment to finish the card front.
I stamped the rain image from the Playing In The Rain stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then cut one of the umbrellas from the Rain Or Shine DSP with the coordinating Playing In The Rain Die and adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to finish the inside of the card.
I made this project out on Instagram this morning and you can see it here.
