Raindrops and Umbrellas

I was introduced to swapping Card Kits some time ago, and have discovered that I really like them. It is such fun to see the kinds of designer papers, images, and embellishments other stampers put together. Plus it's a way to get some images without buying the stamps. A win/win.

My friend Tanja is hosting a Favorite Stamps Card Kit Swap. The idea is to use images from your favorite stamp company in the kit... or, as in my case, ONE of your FAVORITE stamp companies. I have way too many favorites to choose just one.

The image I chose is the Elzybell Rainy Day stamp. I included four different papers, some ribbon, a squiggly paper clip, some eyelets, some raindrop dew drops, and a silly over-sized brad.

I decided it would be fun to see what kind of card I would create with this kit, so I made an extra and had fun playing.

How did you do the "water"? I would love to be able to do that with my HM stamp I used for the Think Pink swap.

Hi Nancy! By the "water" do you mean the two droplets dripping off of the umbrella? If so, they are droplet shaped dew drops. I purchased them. If you mean the paper that looks like water droplets, it's a designer paper that I purchased.
