I'm just loving the forecast for this upcoming week. High 50s and sunny! That being said, please don't be surprised by the spring-y cards today.
This card is for Mojo Monday. I used the sketch for the layout.
I started with the cute little pitcher die. I found it on my Country Life cartridge for my Cricut. I spent a while looking for papers that I could pair with it to give it a "country kitchen" feel to it. I love the blue and yellow together.
I embossed the background and I also ran it through my sewing machine to give it some zig-zag edges.
I didn't use a sentiment because it just looked done and I didn't want to try to fit anything else onto it. The good thing about no sentiments is you can use this card for almost any occasion.
My next card here is for Simon Says Stamp. Their challenge today is anything goes! I thought that was perfect, because I actually made this card a while ago and just haven't had a reason to post it yet.
What really inspired me to make this card is the raindrops. I had just picked up a bottle of Glossy Accents for the first time, and I wanted to use it to look like water. I embossed the little raindrops first, then watercolored a little blue on them, and topped them off with the Glossy Accents.
I also embossed the clouds, and cut the umbrella with my Cricut.
The letters are from a sticker set I picked up on clearance a while back. I love a good deal:)
