PP494 Rain or Shine

Hello, stampers!  Time for another Paper Players challenge with Anne Marie as our hostess!  Check out this fun theme:


Well, my first couple attempts fell flat, and I also found out that I am missing a stamp from my Under the Umbrella stamp set....grrrr!  That in turn prompted a tidy-up of my stamp room, which was very therapeutic, but did not turn up my missing stamp.  Anyway, I finally resorted to my favorite gingham and this is what the end result was:


I stamped and fussy-cut each pair of boots from gingham in Poppy Parade, Terra Cotta Tile, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point, Highland Heather and Blackberry Bliss:



I really wanted to use Pumpkin Pie for the orange, but I had NONE left, so I colored the gingham lines with a Daffodil Delight Blend to increase the orange-ness of it, and it worked pretty well!  I couldn't fit them all on a standard-sized card, so this is a skinny 6x3.5" card.  I remembered this raindrop DSP from A Little Foxy, so I cut that to fit, added a stitched scalloped border, and a sentiment from Under My Umbrella as well as a little flower:


So I am still on the lookout for my missing stamp....hopefully it will turn up, stuck to another stamp case or something!  Meanwhile, I hope you'll check out what the other DT members created for this challenge over at the Paper Players blog.  Then I hope you'll share yours with us too!  You might end up being our Headliner!

Nothing is more frustrating than a missing stamp. Oh, yes, there is...a mising die! Your card is sweet and I love all the boots.

A lost stamp and a big tidy-up, then fussy-cutting all of those boots?! But I have to say this card is worth all the effort - it is so sweet and totally caught my eye. It will brighten someone's day!

SMILE!!!!!!!! I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all these little boots! Tall and skinny cards are always so fun and this one is amazing! The raindrop background is just perfect! The sentiment is so fitting and those little flowers look so pretty on the scalloped rectangle! You rocked this challenge, My Friend! Have a great weekend!

Those are some awesome boots! If you use a stamp platform, I highly suggest checking it for your missing stamp! Way too often I find a missing stamp stuck to the back of mine or still inside!

Oh LeAnn - this is so cute. I want every pair of your adorable rain boots - one in each color of the rainbow! Perfect fussy cutting! :)
