Last Friday I shared with you the new triple punches offered in the Summer Mini from Stampin' Up!. When I shared the Blossom punch, I told you I would show you a way to use the pieces left when you punch the triple setting and the petals are actually punched out. The shape you are left with is a teardrop. Now I had used Marina Mist, and when I looked at those pieces, they reminded me of rain.
This card immediately popped into my head. I knew the Totally Tess stamp set would be fun to use. This was a simple card to make and was also time friendly as it went together very quickly. Let me show you a closer look at Tess and those raindrops.
It only seemed fitting to watercolor Tess since she is walking in the rain. I did add glitter to this card. I could not help myself. The umbrella is trimmed in it, the puddles have a little, and of course, those cute raindrops received a little too. By the way, if you are wondering how I made the puddles, I used the wide oval punch, punched out 2 of them, and then took my paper snips (scissors) and trimmed them to look like puddles.
This was the first idea I had for using those little pieces. I am currently working on several cards and ideas, including other ways to put these small pieces to work. I really love it when I can use every scrap I have.
I want to thank all my friends who came to the Crop Party I held this past Saturday. I had such a good time seeing everyone and crafting the day away. It is always fun to be with friends. I hope you all had as wonderful of a weekend as I did.
Let me know if you need a Summer Mini catalog and I will get one for you. Please email me if you have any questions or leave me a comment. I would love to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by today, and I'll see you tomorrow.
