Altenew is the sponsor for Die Cut Divas during the month of April and the prize is a $20 gift certificate. I am jealous, to say the least, so be sure to join the challenge at Die Cut Divas.
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.
I used Hero Arts London Fog for the rain so the rain image doesn't overpower the girl or couple. Though the stamps have matching dies, I decided to use the rain as part of the scene and used framing dies for my cards.
For my thrid 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 coast of Maine and California.
