I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and that your Monday is going well!
Have you guys seen the card series that Ashley and Fern Bainbridge do? They make a card using the same stamp set to see how different or alike their cards turn out. It's pretty cool. Well, my bestie, Kimberly, and I were inspired by them to try this out.
We have a little twist with ours. Each month, Kimberly and I are taking turns buying each other a stamp set. We don't know what is being bought until we receive it in the mail so it stays a surprise until then. Once we receive the stamp set, we get to work on making our card. Sometimes there may even be a little extra challenge. Then on the third Monday of every month, we plan on showing our cards. Our new series will be called, Card Harmony.
For the month of July, Kimberly purchased the stamp set Chance of Rain by Mama Elephant for us to use with the added twist of making an encouragement card and using bright uplifting colors.
Here is the card that I created:
This stamp set has been on my wish list so I was ecstatic to receive it and couldn't wait to play! Thanks Kimberly!! I decided to use the Sunkissed pattern papers from Doodlebug for my card. I love the bright colors in this set!! I colored the skin and hair on my little kiddo and paper pieced the raincoat, boots and umbrella. I embossed my blue layer with a cloud embossing folder and then sanded the edges of the clouds just a little for the white core to show through. I'm so happy with how it turned out and I hope Kimberly enjoys it as well.
Be sure to check out Kimberly's blog, Kimberly's Crafty Spot to see the awesome card that she made!! Here is a little sneak peek of her card:
