FCCB #281 - Anything Goes and PCS Rainy Day Card!

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

Challenge #281 Anything Goes!
Make a project using whatever image or materials you prefer!

This Weeks Sponsor:

Winner will receive one Craftin Desert Diva's stamp set of their choice!
(USA address only)

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

I'm also posting over at the Pretty Cute Stamps blog today, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to combine some sweet stamps and some awesome diecuts! We've had soooo much rain over the past week that I feel like we are swimming. Creating a rainy day card definitely seemed fitting!

I stamped and paper pieced the cute rubber boots, puddle and sunshine from the Pretty Cute Stamps Rain or Shine  stamp set, layering them on top of my diecut raindrop background, cut from the CTMH Artistry Cricut cartridge. There are so many nice diecut backgrounds in this set - one reason why I love it so much! I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set, directly onto my background.

I stamped the Rainbow stamp on white cardstock and coloured it in with coloured pencils before layering this adorable little Froggy Umbrella diecut from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and a cute little rain cloud from the Create A Critter cartridge. I used some Cosmo Cricket paper that I had in my stash for all the paper piecing and diecuts so everything would be coordinated - and I could feel like I was using up some older papers!

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Rainbow stamp set, using a Hero Arts Ombre Ink pad, and paper pieced an umbrella from the Rain or Shine stamp set.

Here's a look at the super cute stamp sets I used:

I had so much fun creating this bright card!
