Some Cards to Share

Here are a couple of cards that I made recently. This one uses a stamp set from "My Favorite Things." It is called "Rain or Shine." On Monday's MFT's on Split Coast Stampers has a stamp challenge. This challenge was to use this stamp set and add bling or shine to it. I have always wanted to buy these stamps, and now I have a reason. Each week they will use a different stamp, but they let you know ahead of time which one it will be so that you have time to order it. Smart move for them. The paper that I used is DCWV - Nana's Nursery. I added stickles to the rain drops and pudlde. I used these awesome rhinestones, on the cuff of her jacket and sentiment, that my former Bella Sister, Sandi sent me. They come in long rows and are held together by a strip of glue. That's how they got so straight around the sentiment. I could never have done that on my own. Her jacket and boots are paper pieced. The sketch is SC194 from Split Coast Stampers.
This card is for a baby shower that I am giving on Saturday. I used "Teddybella." The "Mommy" who I am giving this card to looks just like her. She is very thin and has a big round belly. To get that raised belly look, I stamped a second image of Bella and cut out the belly part and placed it on a pop dot. The paper is DCWV - Nana's Nursery and the buttons are CTMH.
