I pulled out Lagoon Cardstock, Lagoon Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad, and Honey Butter Cardstock. The Lagoon & Honey Butter looked like Clouds and sunshine to me so I pulled out my Under the Weather stamp set to create a Sorry You're Under the Weather card. I wanted to put the sentiment actually UNDER the weather (literal translation!). This stamp set was in a previous catalogue but it is still available online.
Note: Next time I wouldn't cut my scrap down to 8.5 inches before I tore it... I think if it was a little longer I could have angled the "clouds" more and not lost the stamping underneath as much (I knew I was going to loose some but I think stamping it was still valuable to get the rain showing thru.
I thought we needed a sun to go with the honey butter sunset... so because Gold Glitter was an option for this colour dare I pulled out my Gold Glitter Paper and found a roundish scrap... I think it was the inside of a letter or shape (maybe Gold Glitter sunglasses from one of the kits or a cricut cut inside of an 8 or a D shape?? Its a scrap it doesn't matter where it came from). I did grab my Circle Thin Cuts but figured a scrap was already in a circle type shape that I would just use that. Close enough. I did use the full sheets of Glitter paper for my background in my photo, I do love me some glitter! Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project.
