Play In The Puddles!!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Rain Gnome from the new July 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “There’s Always Room For You Under My Umbrella” and “If you want a rainbow, you’ve got to deal with a little rain”.

I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image and added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it. Using Tonic Studios Craft Perfect – Iridescent Mirror Card – Tidal Wave cardstock, I cut out 6 little droplets of water. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Whimsy Stamps – Wavy Nested Frame Dies Set, I die cut the puddle out of the same paper. Just love how this paper looks like water. I ran the water pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then adhered them to Scrapbook.com – Jewels Smooth Cardstock. I popped the image on top of the main puddle. Once this was all done, I fussy cut around the image and water droplets and added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of all of the pieces and set them aside.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. I cut the background paper using Forever In Time – Splish Splash (SP344U) paper and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. I used my cutter to cut around the sentiment and then a corner rounder for the 4 corners. I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean around the edges with a sponge dauber and then added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it. I popped this up onto the base at the bottom of the card and then popped up the image and splash marks to finish off the card.
