I was gifted with the adorable Rainbows and Raindrops bare rubber set. This set has a ton of sweet sentiments and accessory image stamps! Looky....
Cute images right!? I was able to mask the large cloud and stamp the small cloud in a layered fashion very easily. Since the stamps I received were bare rubber, I just treat them like acrylic stamps by temporarily tacking them to an acrylic block to stamp them with. (You can also attach a product call EZ mount). The umbrella was paper pieced (wouldn't this cutie also be sweet for a baby shower?) and detail cut so that I could move it around my card easily. I love how the raindrops were separate from the cloud stamps and I could chose where and when they would fall. Because even though I do love rain, after a week of it lately here in "sunny California", on my kid's spring break(!), I'm not quite as tolerant as my card says I am! ;)
Gratuitous texture shot here...love the herringbone embossing, the messy notebook paper, the stickles lined clouds, the stitching and that independent umbrella. FUN! Pure fun I tell ya! Thanks to Katie Cotton, owner of Paper Makeup Stamps for sending me such a darling set! There is a super cute rainbow in the set too that I am itching to stamp with sooooon!
