SPD Raincheck - by Wendy Ramlakhan

I created a simple and quick card that also has lots of fun dimension and details!  I started by selecting the cloud paper from our Whatever The Weather Pattern Paper Collection and then used the clouds from the coordinating SugarCuts die set to cut 3 different sized clouds from the paper.  **Yes, the clouds in the die are the exact size as the clouds in the paper pad!!  How fun is that?!?!** 

SPD Rain Check detail

I cut the same clouds again but this time with SugarPuff foam, adhered them together and then laid the clouds back into the paper where they were cut from.  I just love the fun dimension this created!!  Using the polka dotted umbrella image from the Whatever the Weather stamp set, I did a little tone on tone stamping and then popped the center of the umbrella up with SugarPuff foam as well.  This time I used a Copic marker to color the edges of the SugarPuff to match the orange of the ink and cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment in white and added a few sequins (Atmosphere) to finish things off.

    What a cute collection! I LIKE to spend a rainy afternoon in bed with a good book and some hot cocoa. I don’t usually GET to do that, however, due to work. So, for example, today was a rainy day. What did I do? I graded homework and prepped for this week’s classes. So much for doing what I LIKE to do. 🙂


  2. Kim S

    These are so cute! I love rainy days. I enjoy just sitting home and listening to the rain while crafting away if I’m home alone if hanging out with my family watching a favorite movie/show.


  3. Judy Williams

    On a rainy day, I like to stamp about sunny days of course! Your new stamp set is perfect for every kind of weather though, it’s beautiful!


  4. Barb

    What a fabulous new collection! Oh my!!!! On rainy days I love to make cards or read! Cannot wait to see the rest of the release!!!


  5. Margreet

    What a great DT cards with that new gorgeous stamp set.
    What I love to do on a rainy day??? Just sitting in my craftroom and making cards, which is all the world to me!
    xxx Margreet


  6. Mary Ann Evans

    Nice collection. I Love Lucy!!! On a rainy day I try to clean up my craft room, continue adding to the chaos, or just take a nap.

    Terrific examples of a great weather themed cards made from the best weather tamp and die sets I’ve seen!


  10. Becca Yahrling

    Love this collection – so perfect for a Florida girl like me who sees LOTS of rainy afternoons! And I must admit, I love to just sit & watch a good rainstorm, especially if there’s thunder & lightning. It’s just so beautiful. Otherwise, I like to spend a rainy afternoon crafting!


  11. Dot Freel

    Awesome, cute cards with that stamp set. Living in Vegas, we don’t get much rain but we happened to get it all this weekend. I watercolored and watched movies. It was relaxing.


  12. TaraG

    OMGosh! SOOOOO excited about this release…the Whatever the Weather stamp set and SugarCuts are sensational!!!! And I LOVE the coordinating patterned paper!
    As a long-time migraine suffer, I have to say a rainy day is not rainbows, puffy clouds and pretty umbrellas for me…rain is my nemesis! If I’m not sequestered to my bed to suffer in the dark on a rainy day, then I love to curl up with a good book, maybe retreat to my caftroom and make a card or just hang out on the couch and watch a movie.


  13. Joyce

    I have been waiting (somewhat impatiently) for the release dates! So excite Do! I love the perfect spring stamp set and all the coordinating products. Such pretty examples!

    My body does not deal well with weather changes or the cold so I tend to spend lots of time reading and stamping. But for me that’s no different then any other day.


  14. Vinita Jain

    I was really excited to see the Weather and more collection and it is beyond amazing. Totally love the coordinating, colorful PP, stamps and dies. And DT’s executed them in their creations soooooo beautifully!!!

    I love rains and the earthly scents (Petrichor). Rains are beautiful, one of the best seasons out of the four to me( amazing and romantic)in India. I always sit on my veranda and enjoy my snacks with a cup of tea. I enjoy the sounds of rain water gushing through the drains on streets, the water dropping on the plastic roof it’s a pleasant music in itself.


  15. Debbi Vasel

    What gorgeous cards the designers have made with this set! If you are under the weather, you will not be for long after receiving a card made from this set.


  16. Ericka Strange

    Great release. Love the rainbows and sequins. I love spending a rainy day reading a good book with a cup of coffee. But I’m a mom so I usually spend rainy days running after my toddler or playing stuffed animals. Lol


  17. Lizzy Smith

    OH my goodness, it just doesnt get any cuter!! I need ALL of it!! How fabulous that the dies are the same size as the clouds on the paper!! Genius. I’ll be having a rainy afternoon today! I’ll spend it coloring and making cards of course. lol


  18. Andrea Shell

    Fabulous release! Love the papers and the stamps and matching dies (especially that the cloud is the same size as that of the paper!)! On a rainy day, if I’m by myself, I like to craft or read a book. If my family is home, then we would probably play a game.


  19. Shelly

    Oh, LOVING the day 1 releases!! Awesome!
    And certainly, I LOVE to craft away on a rainy day! 🙂 (Though, I’ll do that on a sunny day too! ;))


  20. Kim Heggins

    Watching a black and white movie with a bowl of extra salty popcorn or spending the day in my craft room with the shutters open so I can see the rain.


  21. Rosemary D

  22. sharla~

    On a rain soaked day I love to go to my scrape room and just play with all my stamps and dies. I just love the stamp set. Hope to WIN.


  24. Denise Bryant

    Beautiful papers and I love the stamps and dies! On a rainy day, nothing better to do than stay at home and spend the day making cards and ATCs!


  25. Barbara

    On a rainy day I like to spend time in my craft room either making cards or surfing online looking for card ideas on blogs or Pinterest! Then of course I always enjoy shopping online for new supplies!


  26. Michele K. Henderson

    I LOVE this new release! My favorite way to spend a rainy afternoon is to curl up with a great mystery movie! I love watching dramatic whodunits while it’s pouring out! Since my kitties are afraid of thunder, they’ll always curl up with me, so I ould never get anything done anyway!


  27. Taunya Butler

    THIS is a great start to an amazing week!! I can already tell it is going to be OUTTA this world!!! Awesome new products – some very cool and genius ideas!!

  30. Kathy Mc

    Living in Western WA, we see our share of rain so I’m used to it. But, I love stamping in my room and hearing the downpour knowing I don’t have to go anywhere. Great new products and the sentiments are awesome in this set.


  31. Sabrina Radican

    Absolutely darling cards!!! I love to go into my craft room and make cards and memory albums for my family and friends!!


  32. Lynn D

    I live on the west coast so rainy days are quite common but now that I am retired I take advantage of this and get cozy with a good cup of tea/hot chocolate and read. Or go to my happy place (my craft space) and just play – get lost in all the pretty papers, stamps, glitter, etc. The cards are so cheerful. TFS


  33. Mary Holshouser

    My favorite thing to do on a rainy day – curl up in my recliner with a good book.
    I get more crafting done when the sun is out.
    Love the new release.


  34. Pat McCleary

  46. Jeanne Jordan

    This is a sweet set! Whenever possible, I paper craft on rainy days, of course! However, it there are only a few drops coming down and it’s warm outside, I might be working in the garden. Some people don’t realized that rain makes garden chores easier! But, let’s face it… when it’s nasty outside, most of us would rather be indoors. So off to the craft room I go. I’m lucky that I can do that! Thanks for the chance to win!


  47. AJ Bodine

    Gorgeous DT cards and what a perfect spring release, the papers, stamps and dies, especially loving that font on the stamp set! This all goes on my wishlist, cannot wait to see the next 4 days!

  50. CJ Pillow

    I really like the new products. My favorite rainy day includes the following: curling up on the couch with my warmest blanket, a new mystery from the library, and a Hobbit movie playing in the background. Of course, all of this sets the scene for an extended nap.


  51. Rikki Scott-Morgan

    Love love love this set and the paper is absolutely adorable. Love what the design team has created with the set, the cards are so inspirational and fun. On my wish list😊


  52. Rikki Scott-Morgan

  53. Judie Attard

    You’re asking an easy question! Of course, on a rainy day I love to make cards!! What a better way to forget the grey outside then to delve into colourful stamps and cardstock!

  58. Amy Lim

    I love Whatever the Weather stamp set and dies. I think this set is very versatile and can create many cute cards and I love the sentiments too. Also, the shaker sequins are very pretty and great for making feminine cards. Love love


  59. Tosha

    The most fun we’ve ever had was on a rainy day when my husband and I played and danced in the rain with our not yet walking son laughing and giggling the whole time. That was some time ago and our children are grown but in the summer you might yet catch me dancing in the rain. By the way I really like the style of your sun die.


  60. carol

    Day 1 and I’m already blown away with your new products and outstanding DT showcases! Fantastic stamps, dies and papers; perfect for making card sets! Rainy afternoons see me either crafting or nestled on the couch, under my fluffy blanket, reading a good mystery. My latest discovery: Ausma Khan…brilliant author! If the rain isn’t pelting down, my umbrella and I go for a walk to see the mists that settle on the mountains. Thank you for the giveaway opportunities!


  61. Sandra KM

    Love this stamp set! My favorite way to spent a rainy day is snuggling up with my husband and watching a movie.


  62. Shona Chambers

    How exciting to have your own papers!! The colours and patterns are so fun and bright. And love the name of the foam sheets, thats so cute. If I’m home alone and its raining, I love to put on a horror movie and makes some cards. If the kids are home from school or its the weekend, its wonderful to watch a movies with them and make some popcorn or play some board games.


  63. Marianne

    Such a perfect mix of stamps, dies and PAPERS! I don’t like rain but the cards by the DT are sure to cheer anyone up. When it’s raining and I don’t have to work, I like to spend time in my craftroom or curl up on the sofa with a book.

    I love all things rainbow…so these are must haves! So cute! I also love that the paper pack is cut specifically for A2 cards…I always feel like I waste with 6×6.

    I’m not much for playing in the rain, so when it is rainy outside I love to cuddle up under a blanket with a cup of tea & watch a movie or do something crafty.


  67. Laurie

    Such a cute collection!! On a rainy afternoon, I like to craft-though I do that in any weather. Rainy weather just allows a better excuse. 🙂


  68. theCook

    Beautiful! I like to spend a rainy afternoon at home with a nice warm drink (used to be hot chocolate, but since I don’t drink milk anymore, it can be tea or nut-based chocolate milk…) and something sweet to eat!
