Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head...

We were buried in snow yesterday, it has since left, and now were drowning in rain!!! So, I thought these two cards were fitting for today's post. I received some new stamps last week from My Favorite Things(Rain or Shine Set) and went to town. I must say, the umbrella that comes with this set is hard for me to work with...thats why you'll only see it on one card out of the many I made. I think it would work better if the stamp were outlined and not a solid pattern. None the less, I'm still IN LOVE with this gal and her sassy coat and boots:)This card is 5x5 square and the base is Bazzill textured black. The red matte is also Bazzill cs. The patterned paper is from Me and My Big Ideas that I purchased at A.C. Moore. I haven't been able to find any since:( I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. To kill the open space to the right, I used my PTI-Little Lady Set and inked her up with Dew Drops Chalk Ink. For a litle added depth, I used MM silver eyelets. These go on super easy with my new Crop-A-Dile...how did I ever live without this??!!!!!
This is a standard A2 card. I started off with SU! Chocolate Chip base and matted Pink Bazzil cs(top half) and SU! PP on the bottom. I used my Polka Dot Bg for the top half and inked her up with Chocolate Chip ink. The stamped image is colored with prismacolor pencils and I used my Clear Spica Glitter Pen to add a little sparkle(the photo doesn't pic it up, but its super shimmery). I paper pieced her coat and added some Amuse Twinkle Stickers to her umbrella. The ribbon is SU! Chocolate Chip. Here's to hoping the rain lets up SOON:)
