Rainy Day Love for Inspired By…

Hello Everyone!

Welcome Back for a peek at Today’s Card!

Today’s Card is for an Inspiration Challenge…

Appropriately named ‘Inspired By…’

Here is the Challenge!

Inspired By...rainy day coziness

I was inspired with all the blues in the picture!


Here is my take on the Inspiration…


I stamped in Night of Navy Ink and then quickly coated with

Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed…I wanted to be able

to water-color and not worry about the ink running!


Here is a close up of the card front…to show the raindrops AND the

Wink of Stella on the Swan, her babies, the water, the flowers…



Here is the inside of my Card!


I also heat embossed Clear Embossing Powder over the Night of Navy Ink!

I also added a few ‘raindrops’ to the inside too!


Here is my Card with its stamped to match envelope!



Stock and Measures: unless noted, all items are from Stampin’Up!

I am warmed with the ‘coziness’ of my Card!

I picked a great day to make this Card!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Coziness to you ALL!

  1. I LOVE THIS CARD! You did an amazing job!

    Sometime can you help me with embossing? I’ve tried and haven’t gotten very good results, even after watching tutorials. I don’t know if my supplies are too old, or if I’m just not doing something correctly. 😂

    1. If you feel your powders are old…try putting about a 1/2 tsp of uncooked rice in the little jars with the powder…sort of like rice in salt shakers…it doesn’t create a problem when using…this is how I keep my powders!

      1. thanks for the tip. I’ll try that. I bought all of my ink pads and embossing powder for someone on a yard sale site, so I have no idea how old they are. I know I need to buy some new supplies now that I have my stamparatus! 😄

Let me know what you think!
