Hi, crafty friends! Today I have a couple of fun cards that I shared on the Mama Elephant blog as a June guest designer last week. Here are what I came up with:


I created a colorful one-layer card using Chance of Rain. I first stamped the umbrella image a few times along the bottom of my card front. I masked off the images using sticky notes between stamping. Then I colored the images with Copic markers. After stamping the sentiment, I stamped raindrops all over the white spaces.


Next, I heat embossed the images with clear embossing powder to create a wet look. It’s s shame my camera failed to catch the glossy look of the umbrellas. They look way better in real life. 🙂 By the way, I’m entering this card into the Virginia’s View challenge #16.


I made another card with same design but slightly different colors. Which one do you like? Hope you love at least one of them. 😉

I made a video for you. It was my first video tutorial published in public, and I feel excited and nervous at the same time. Your small words of encouragement or love are deeply appreciated. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel.


That’s all I have today. I had so much fun playing with Mama Elephant’s June Release. Thanks so much to Kryssi for inviting me as your guest designer this month. Happy crafting!

  1. Both cards are great! So clever to make the umbrellas “wet”. Love the bold colored one best 🙂
