under the weather - not for long!


today i have a super fun card to share for the current simon says stamp wednesday challenge! :) yahoo!!!
this card is also being featured on the newton's nook blog! lucky card! 

this week, it's anything goes (yahoo!!) and they're featuring lil inker designs and newton's nook products! what?! YES!
so i just HAD to play along! 

here's my card:

i used the adorable spring showers stamp set! SO versatile!!
i fussy cut out the umbrella only from the duck image, and then popped it up over a thicker letter 'j'!! ha ha! instant umbrella handle!! 

the umbrella is supposed to look like it's peeling away the bad weather and bringing sunshine and rainbows!! that was my thought process, anyway! :)
i stamped the sentiment onto a vellum banner (hello my old friend vellum), and then that's the card!

it looks pretty simple, but it took a lot of concentration to make just the right patterned papers show! whew! lol :) (that blue rain/yellow diaganol layer is actually two papers adhered together)

so that's that!
you should get your newton's nook stamps out and play along! :)


  1. super cute! Love the contrast in patterns/colors!

  2. ACK! I loooooooooove that the umbrella is bringing in the sunshine! SOOOOOOOO clever! What a fun design! YOU ROCK:)

  3. so so cute! I love all the different patterns!

  4. I love your idea peeling back the rain and bringing in sun and rainbows of hearts! You are brilliant!
