Dance in the Rain

Home / Blog / Dance in the Rain

The day started out a little on the cooler side but was around 55 degrees later on in the evening! We had a fun day at the Store. Angie and Renee had their book class and I got to meet a few new customers! After work I stopped home and dropped off my stuff and headed over to my friend Jim’s. He made a delicious dinner and we had a nice quiet evening watching TV. A great way to end a Saturday! The make up tag class is on at the Store today, should be fun! πŸ˜€

I finally got my February My Monthly Hero Kit yesterday so I had to give it a little love! I started off by using the stencil and some Pool and Charcoal Ink with a Mini Ink Blending Tool to create my background on a piece of Slate Card Stock. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Vellum along with raindrops and adhered around the back of the panel. The panel is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the little umbrella person in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Die and adhered to the background. To make my shaker I die cut the window from a piece of Solar White 110lb Card Stock and some Acetate. The acetate is adhered to the back of the window and some 3M Foam Tape goes on next. A little sprinkle of Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins before adding the window and the card is done! I do love a shaker and the that stencil that comes in the kit is great! I hope that you like my card for today! Thanks for stopping by! Have a simple Sunday! πŸ™‚

  1. Great card and I love the greeting and the stenciling. You’ve captured the scene perfectly and the clear sequins really give it the rainy feel. Good job! Have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. Hi Justin:

    Love the little rainy scene! I have the window die and find I use it more then I thought I would. Sometimes I stamp a scene looking into the window from out side and sometimes looking out the window from inside. No matter which way you look at things, it’s always fun to look through a window (especially one that you don’t have to wash). LOL The sequins make fabulous raindrops. Great job.

    Feeling human today which is good for a change. The sun is out and it’s in the 40’s which is also good for a change. This should help to make the roads a lot safer for travel. I wish for you a Sensational Sunday my friend and hope you get to put your top down and ride in the sunshine. Love and hugs to you! XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Hello Grace!
      I love that little kit! I will definitely be using the window die again, I think I have one already but you know how that goes! LOL! So glad that you like the little scene, thanks! πŸ™‚
      So happy to hear that you are feeling better!! It’s beautiful here today! I wish you a very happy Sunday and love and bug hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚

  3. Cute. I broke down and jpined the HA monthly kit, (Like I realy need another monthly kit) I love their products
    and usually once the kit arrives I’m too late abnd I miss it. Anyway I think its a good investment. I’m still upset about missing the snow globe.

    1. Thanks Linda! I think the My Monthly Hero Kit is one of the best ones out there! I too love their products! The snow globe was great but I like the NYE one that they had! πŸ™‚
