April Showers


......my word did we have high winds and showers yesterday !!  My side fence now looks like it 's had a few too many !!

Well 1st of the month and that means a new Little Claire Stamp Club set and this month's is called 

"April Showers"

I adore the little ducks and duck border...for this card I just stamped the border top and bottom, then in different coloured inks,  repeatedly stamped one of the sentiments across the middle. Stamped, coloured and decoupaged the duck square, mounted onto black card and then to centre of card. All coloured in with Spectrum Noir pens.





 For the second card I made a fold out frame from a piece of stampin up paper and stamped the coat stand and wellies square in middle and coloured.  Then did several matt and layers using white card and stampin up paper. Made a stamped border round outside edge using sentiment from set. Finished off with some card candy I coloured with Spectrum Noir blue pen same as coat and wellies.
 
 Such a fun set to play with and so many different cards you could make using it !!  Check it out now over at

I'd go mad with all that repeat stamping in different colours. It makes such a difference on this card though!

These are both lovely but I really like the one with the ducks - especially how you stamped the middle part. I am really impressed because mine would have definitely been 'uphill'!!! The colours are gorgeous. Thank you for entering the TTPH challenge this month, lots of luck to you.
