Let it Rain

I'm very happy to be designing this month for Sweet n Sassy Stamps . They have adorable images and I'm partial to their scripture sets. I fell in love with this set Let It Rain for three reasons: the sweet little girl with the umbrella, the scripture verse that I love and this set also has a short stanza of the hymn "There shall be showers of blessing" (which we sing so often in our church and I fully trust and believe)....


for this card, I softly colored the little girl and umbrella with prismacolor pencils and OMS. I was tickled how the CB folder matched the raindrops!

Ink: Memento Black
Paper:  Purple from GinaK, dp from SU
Embellishments: ribbon and pearls from GinaK
Technique: coloring, matting, embossing


This one is colored with Copics and  I paper pieced her umbrella! was in the mood for blue (thinking about blue skies that I hope are here soon).... isn't she enjoying the soft Spring rain....I am so ready for that too!!!  anything but snow!!! LOL

Ink: Memento Black
Paper: all from SU including dp
Embellishments: sateen flowers from GinaK (colored with Copics)
Technique: paper piecing, matting, coloring
Copics used : E00, E31, B12, B14, B93, B97 and Y08

Thoroughly love this set! Could spend my whole time this month creating cards with it!!!...but I won't  *wink....hope you liked these!

Have a blessed day,

Gorgeous cards- I love the sentiment- I do not know that hymn (I do not think I do....maybe if i heard it sung I would recognize it....). I love the 2nd card- the blue is so pretty! TFS

Lovely cards...and sentiment. We are having a tropical rainstorm this am in FL...could use one of the umbrellas.

Both are beautiful Linda.. I really like the way the embossing folder matched the rain drops... very creative! Sending hugs, Peggy

Linda, these are wonderful! I love them both but the first one caught my eye how the embossing folder really simulates water falling (or rain). I now have that hymn in my mind and am singing it as I type. Well not really as I can't type and sing too.

Congrats for this new DT gig. You are so deserving....can't wait for more. :D
