April Showers Bring Rainbow Smiles!

FCCB_DT_btn

Happy Monday all!  Today over at Fantabulous Cricut, we have a new challenge on deck!  April showers using an umbrella.   Sadly, I don’t see much rain since I live in the ever sunny Southern California, but when we do see rain we normally see rainbows, which always make me smile!  That was my inspiration for this week’s challenge.

This card was super fun to make! It is a 6×6.5 inch card. The base card stock is from Stampin’ Up and the inked edges is from Close to My Heart Slate stamp ink.  I had both my Circut and Silhouette sharing duties.  I found the cloud cut over at the Silhouette store by Lori Whitlock.  I cut it twice, inked the edges and stamped the sentiment using Scrappy Moms Kids Incorporated stamp set. I used Pop Dots to add height to the layers.

For the umbrellas I cut each from Cricut cartridge, Everyday Pop-Up Cards at 1.5 inches using Recollection Bright card stock.  I then ran them through the Cuttlebug using Cuttlebug embossing boarders.  I added different heights using Pop Dots.  Using mini Glue Dots, I added Dew Drops, from Robin’s Nest and Skittles.

This is going to be a hard card to let go, since it truly makes me smile.  Now be sure to head over to FCCB and see the other amazing inspirations that the rest of the design team has cookn’ and link up your April Showers and umbrella project using at least ONE Cricut cut.

Thanks for sharing a piece of “who does not smile when they see rainbows” pie with me.

Happy Sunday All!  I can’t believe NEXT Sunday will be Easter! Wow time is flying by and I guess it feels that way since I have been very busy in my craft room and in the hub’s workshop cookn’ up some fun playtime goodies for our two little girls.

A while ago we decided we needed to make something that would hold all the dolls and doll swag our little girls are starting to accumulate.  I wanted it to be interactive as well as organized storage.  The hubs and I sat down started to design a concept.  We came up with a design, made a blueprint and headed to the wood store.

It has taken a few weekends to knock out these two pieces, but we had a blast doing it.  We still have a large drawer to make and that is soon to be in the mix of construction. DSC_6096

I had a blast putting my Silhouette to work and cutting out vinyl and transferring it onto sections of these structures, spray painting and peeling off.  I found the cuts at the Silhouette store from Samantha Walker and Lori Whitlock.  DSC_6097

 

Thanks for sharing a piece of “love DIY” projects with the hubs!
