Wishing You Brighter Days Card

Hello friends!

I am popping in today to share a just for fun card that I made with Avery Elle's Weather It stamps set and dies.

If you have been keeping up with my Stamp Out Chaos ramblings, I mentioned that I keep a basket on my desk of stamps and dies that have yet to see crafty action.  My humble goal toward achieving a more minimal and streamlined crafty environment is to work through what I already own before purchasing new.  With a new Avery Elle release on the horizon (I admit I have a bit of an Avery Elle addiction....), I need to get to stamping!

First I trimmed a panel of aqua card stock and stamped the raindrops on the bottom portion of the card. Next, I stamped and die cut the clouds and adhered them to the card.  I also stamped the sentiment in black ink.  

For the balloons, my original intent was to stamp the raindrops upside down to form the balloons, but the scale was off, so the Rounded Diamonds stamp set came to my rescue with a drop shape that was the perfect size. I simply drew squiggly lines to make the balloon strings and added the smiley face from We Go Together.  I adhered the completed card to a kraft card stock base. 

My inspiration for this card came from this print I found on Pinterest: 

So fun, right?! I find the BEST inspiration on Pinterest.  In case you'd like to follow along, click the button in the left column of my blog or visit my boards here.

Well I am off for a day of (hopefully) productive fun with my crafty friends, so that's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by!
