Hi friends!  Happy Saturday!  I've got two cards to share with you today using the April Showers & Puddle Play stamp sets.  I created a masculine and feminine version.

On the feminine card I die cut the clouds from a card panel and then sponged ink onto the card base behind the clouds.  I used some patterned paper to ground the bear and stamp the sentiment as well as paper piece the umbrella.  I left the bear white.

On the masculine version, I stamped and die cut the patterned clouds using Cummerbund ink and then glued them onto my card base.  I used a black strip of card stock to ground my bear and I colored the umbrella in with Copics and stamped the bear on kraft card stock using Midnight ink.  Two similar designs, but you get a different look on each one.  Do you prefer one over the other?  I like them both equally.  ;)

  1. Fabulous cards Kristie - love the negative die cuts over the sponged base panel on the feminine card - I think that is my favourite.
