Rain or Shine ~ CASE Study #144


Hello friends!  Well, hold onto your hats because we’ve got lots going on over on the CASE Study blog today!  Not only are we introducing a new Muse, the talented Lisa Spangler, but we’re also welcoming 3 new Teamies, Maureen Merritt, Silke Ledlow and Tasnim Ahmed!!!  Woohoo!  But wait! There’s more!  Our Guest Designer for June is none other than my bestie, Lynn Mangan, from The Mango Boys and Me!  How fun is that!  Okay, onto our inspiration for this week.  How stunning are Lisa’s colours?  That was my starting point this week :)


I thought it would be so fun to take those colours and stamp them on my new Clearly Besotted Stamps umbrella die.  This die and the coordinating stamp set, April Showers, is just being released over in the Clearly Besotted Stamps store if you want to check it out.  The set includes 3 different umbrella patterns divided into 3 parts so you can stamp in 3 different colours like I’ve done here.  I also used some beautiful striped paper from Simple Stories to echo those fabulous colours on Lisa’s card. 

Oh,  I betcha can’t wait to play this week!  Head over to the CASE Study blog or visit each of the Design Team Members directly on their blogs below and then join in the fun!  Thanks for visiting!

Oh how love this happy card, Diva! Had to giggle that you used a sun-shaped die with that CBS set whilst I used a raindrops die... what does that suggest about our weather over here and over there?!?! Ha!
