Give the effect of rain on your project with embossing paste or ink and our Rain Stencil. Remember to bring along the Umbrella Stencil to keep dry!

Kristine and Louise both created a little rain shower for their House-Mouse characters, and we just love the different ways you can use the stencil. There are even more projects today for our April Showers theme from our design team!

Spring Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

We are joining a fantastic event with a community of card makers that love coffee, tea, and cocoa as much as their papercraft supplies! The Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog has a spring theme blog hop, and we are hopping along!

Our fresh spring project is a trio of bookmarks, perfect for a relaxing time outside with a good book or three!

All three were stamped with Coffee Talk Perfectly Clear Stamp Set in alcohol marker safe ink then reversed masked to create patterns on two of the cups with Fronds Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. The coffee cups were masked and partially covered with the edge of another sticky note to create the horizon. Stencils and airbrush tool or stamped and colored patterns were added on each bookmark (from left to right): Jungle Leaves and Flower Lace stencils, Stone Background stencil and Bouquet For You Perfectly Clear Stamp Set, and Picasso Shield/Stencil Tool (video) and Wood Background Stamp.
