Rain, Rain Go Away...

Yep, its raining, but what else do you expect in the NW in the fall?   However, the wet and the gloom make for a perfect opportunity to stay inside and make cards.  I did that yesterday and hope to do so today.  And I actually got two cards done!  The one I'm posting today is for JUGs challenge 54 and Waltzingmouse sketch challenge 18


The JUGs challenge was to use acetate on your project.   I haven't done alot of things using acetate, but after buying some Hero Arts clear cards recently I'm inspired to try it more often.   I stamped the clear card with the Hero Arts DB Holly Flourish using Stazon Cloud White and let it dry.   I used the WMS set Very Vintage Christmas and a Prickly Pear Stamps set called Clearly Beautiful Trees that I won recently from Prickly Pear.  The set has a matching tree die and I won that, as well. 

After diecutting and then stamping all the bits and pieces using SU! Riding Hood Red & Memento Bamboo Leaves, I distressed the edges with Close to My Heart Parchment.  Some tiny sparkles were added to the trees and I finished it off with a bow made from PTI's New Leaf ribbon.  I have a shot (not a very good one, though) of the interior, as well. 

Thanks for taking a peek... hope your weekend was nice and dry!

Supplies:  Hero Arts Clear Card; PTI Vintage Cream cs; Stamps:  WMS Very Vintage Christmas, Prickly Pear Clearly Beautiful Trees; Ink:  SU! Riding Hood Red, Memento Bamboo Leaves; Ribbon:  PTI New Leaf;  Tiny Sparkles:  Close to My Heart; Cuttlebug; Prickly Pear Tree die; Spellbinders Small Labels dies
