Have a Wonderful Easter - Welcome Easter Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute card using the Under My Umbrella and Welcome Easter Stamp Sets.  I created a super cute Easter Card for today's project and I made it rain in the background.  Basically because it seems to rain every Easter here where I live.  At least for part of the day anyways.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks:  

To start off I stamped all the images in Tuxedo Black ink and heat set the ink so that I could do a little coloring with my watercolor pencils.  I used both sets of watercolor pencils for the coloring, and once I had everything colored I used my blender pen to moisten the pigment of the pencils to give it a watercolor look.  Once the watercoloring was complete I cut out all the little animals and used the Umbrella Punch to punch out the Umbrellas.  


Next I used the grass die from the Special Day Die Set and the flowers from the Sending Flowers Dies (both are part of the Coordinating Product Release) to cut out the grass and the flowers for my cards.  After that I took a piece of Whisper White and did a little ink blending for the background sky.  After that I took the Basic Pattern Stencils (the Clouds pattern) and stenciled on some darker blue at the bottom of each cloud and whisper white craft ink on the top to add a little variation.  Then I stamped some rain drops in Balmy Blue ink and attached the grass die cut.  I added a little grass that that I stamped to this area to add a little extra to it.   


To finish off my card I added the cut out animals and umberas along with the flowers to the card front.  To make it so the tulips were not floating in air I added stems to each with my granny apple green stampin' write marker, and some of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the center of the flowers.   I added the sentiment on a piece of whisper white cardstock stamped in Balmy Blue and cut it out with \the banner die from the Sending Flowers Dies.  

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful day.  If you need any of the supplies I used to create this card you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the item in the supply list below.  Make sure you join my this afternoon on my Facebook page for this weeks Facebook Live mini Class featuring the Welcome Easter Stamp Set.
