It's Raining, It's Pouring....

Yesterday, while visiting Jessica over at Jess's Obsession, (if you haven't gone browsing yet, you really should!!)  anyway, she mentioned that she was tired of the rain and fog.  So, Jess, this is for you and all our soggy friends out west.  Praying the rain ends for you soon.  Living in the hurricane part of the country, I do understand when too much rain is NOT a good thing.

I just received this super cute file from Regina at The Cutting Cafe called Rain, Rain Go Away.  How's that for timing?  It's just so stinking cute!!  33 images that include sentiments as well. 

I can't say I'm totally in love with this card.  I think the image in my head was somewhat different than what appeared on the paper but maybe that had something to do with only getting 4 hours of sleep the night before...ya think?!!

The gray clouds have a silver lining...I got a new glue for glitter and not happy with the gloppy look of it so scraped it strings too like hot glue does.  Go figure.  I will order some of the best glue I've found for glitter from Art Institute.  She has the glitteriest glitter as well.  If anyone knows of another good glitter glue, please let me know.

I popped up the smaller cloud with a dimensional and the rain has the coolest clear dots from Fiskars called "Rain Dots".  Not the easiest to get off the acrylic sheet but I love the look of them.

I'm working on another card using the cute, cute boots from this set...stay tuned.

Supplies:  Paper - Neenah Classic white, SEI Black Orchid
Stamps - The Cutting Cafe
Ink - SU Basic Grey, Prismacolor marker, silver gel pen
Accessories - dimensional, Fiskars Rain dots, sewing machine, glitter, Cuttlebug embossing folder

Pin It!
