Oh Happy Day Card with Playing in the Rain by Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

A little late out of the gate today but you’ll see it’s worth the wait. My Oh Happy Day card using Playing in the Rain is sure to bring a smile to anyone who receives it! It is a monochromatic card (basically one color: Fresh Freesia) and a fun stampin’ tip you can use over and over again.

Let’s take a look at today’s card ….

I teamed up the bunny from Playing in the Rain with the Fresh Freesia from the Dandy Designs out of the Sale-a-bration catalog. This is one of the items you can get FREE with a qualifying purchase of $100. There are 48 – 12″ x 12″ sheets in this package.

Need patterned paper that can be used for any season or occasion? The Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper is the one for you! It includes versatile patterns such as plaids, polka dots, and stripes. Make this paper the background for a card or scrapbook page. Or cut it into strips or accent pieces. However you use this paper, it will make any creation look dandy!

If you look closely, you will see two different patterns. I stamped the bunny image on the floral pattern and then cut out the shirt and dressed my bunny in his new outfit!! You can tell by his reaction that he loves his new shirt …. LOL

This technique is fun to use and can be done on almost anything! This angle shows you the layers of circles that I cut out using the Layering Circle dies, and I used the vellum cardstock to highlight the bunny… he is attached directly to the vellum and then popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the greeting with Fresh Freesia, but it with the Layering Circle dies and tucked it in with the other circles. I finished off the card by embellishing it with the Basic Rhinestones.

Thank you for hanging out with me today. How are you liking the Playing in the Rain so far? I shared 3 different designs this week, and will share more soon.

Tomorrow I have a whole new stamp set that has been just waiting for me to pull it off the shelf!

See you then ~

Another Window Card using Playing in the Rain

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share another card from the Playing in the Rain using the same Window Card layout as I did yesterday. The only thing I changed was moving my “bridge” to the other side of the card, and of course my designer paper pattern and critter!

I wanted to share one of the two “rain” patterns that are included in the Rain or Shine Specialty designer series paper. This paper is a bit on the stormy side, however life can still be beautiful if we have a positive attitude. They say, it’s not what happens in life, but how we react to it …

And this happy fox doesn’t seem to let that stormy weather bother him at all. I fussy cut the flowers out again because I wanted a touch of pink in the card to coordinate with the umbrella and to create a better flow on my card. I changed the greeting as well … and I agree, rainy days are always better when your with people you care about.

Measurements:

  • Card base = 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Score at 4-1/4″ then Cut at 5-3/4″ … cut 1-1/2″ from the piece you cut off.
  • Window Sheet & Basic White Inside: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Mat: 5-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
  • Designer Paper: 5-1/8″ x 1-1/8″

I wanted to show the “embossing” on the Rain or Shine Specialty Designer paper and how much dimension and texture you create with the layers of this card …

And by the way … got the greeting down on the first try! lol I have just begun to play with this cute bundle … Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing them with you!

Thanks so much for stopping back today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Window Card using Playing in the Rain by Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share the replay and the card from my Facebook LIVE last night. It was so much fun playing with the Playing in the Rain bundle, it actually just made me happy! The song Singing in the Rain just keeps playing over and over again in my head.

Let’s get right to the video …

So, what did you think? Cutest paper right! I have my two little granddaughters this weekend (for a princess party) while mama’s at work so we are going to be “Playing in the Rain”!

Let’s talk measurements again:

  • Card base = 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Score at 4-1/4″ then Cut at 5-3/4″ … cut 1-1/2″ from the piece you cut off.
  • Window Sheet & Basic White Inside: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Mat: 5-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
  • Designer Paper: 5-1/8″ x 1-1/8″

And my greeting … Well, I pulled out my Stamparatus and the greeting was aligned perfectly. Ahhhh … the tools we have to make our cardmaking easier. Not sure why I didn’t think of that sooner.

I did a little addition to the inside as well …

I used some of the scraps left over from trimming my designer paper and added to the inside. Someone once told me it was not nice to have naked envelopes or insides!! lol

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. Hope you have all the information and instruction you need to create this quick & easy window card using the Playing in the Rain bundle and Rain or Shine Specialty Designer paper.

Have a sun shiny day … or have fun playing in the rain!
