I wanted to have some cards on hand that could be used for a sympathy card, or supporting a friend going through a rough time. This turned out better than I could have hoped, as stamping on vellum can be tricky.

Dancing In The Rain

Altenew is the sponsor for Die Cut Divas this month and the prize is a $20 gift certificate.  I am jealous, to say the least, so be sure to join the challenge.
Altenew

Altenew is known for the many wonderful flower stamps and dies that have made stampers extremely happy with their products.  I have my favorites and "Dancing in the Rain" stamp and die set is one of them.  There are so many fun images and great sentiments in the set.

My first two cards features the "Dancing in the Rain" stamp set from Altenew. You can find the stamp and die set here

My first card features a silhouette of a little dancing girl in the rain and puddles.  There is a rain stamp and the little girl dancing in the puddles stamp which combined to make the cutest stamped scene.  Silhouettes make great cards, adding an embossing folder and dies.  I used the sentiment "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...  It's about learning to dance in the rain."

My second card features a couple with an umbrella standing in some puddles with the rain sleeting down.  Three stamps were used to create this card (rain stamp, sentiment stamp and couple stamp).  I thought a non-symmetrical look might fit this card.

For my third card, I used another Altenew stamp set for a scene with a lighthouse.  One of my favorite things to investigate is a lighthouse.  I've seen marvelous lighthouses along the coasts of Maine and California.  


Supplies:
Altenew Be A Lighthouse
Becca Feeken die
Hero Arts Holiday Greenery Edge Fancy Die (upper corner die-cuts)
Copic markers including multi-liner 0.05 
Vagabond die cut machine

Thank you from the Die Cut Divas for checking out our inspiration cards.
