Showering You in Kisses

Valentine's Day is just two short days away. Today I am showering you with my latest Valentine's card created using the "Raindrops are Falling" Collection and "Sealed With A Kiss" Collection.


I started with a visual in my head of how I wanted this card to look. The "showering you in kisses" sentiment was printed on my computer, then I built the card scene around the sentiment.


The umbrellas from the "Raindrops Are Falling" Collection were stamped with black Archival Ink onto printed paper. I fussy cut them out and laid them on the bottom of my card (without adhering them). Then I stamped the umbrella handle directly onto the card. (A little hint here...to get just the handle image of the umbrella on my card base, I covered the rest of the umbrella with washi tape while I was inking and then pulled the tape off before I stamped the handle so the rest of the umbrella wouldn't accidently be stamped onto my card base.)

I arranged the the lip stamps from "Sealed With A Kiss" randomly around my sentiment and above the umbrellas. They are inked in pink and red Momento Ink.


My finishing touch was adding the umbrellas with Helmar Zapdots to give them a bit of height.
