Wishing You Sushine, a Card with Umbrellas and Rain and a Flower Thanks Card

There are so many challenge with rain and flowers on April as I remember my OLD stamp (bought at the end 2014)  from Create A Smile I have umbrella stamp yaayyy...

Here is how I made my card:

I choose the Umbrella stamp and masking it (with post it) to make them in a row then colored the umbrella with my tombow brush pen

Here is my complete card:

I covered with distressed ink in grey for the clouds and drew with pencil my rain drops cause I dont have similar stamp like BIG RAIN :) Sponged the top area with grey distress ink and bottom part with blue distress Ink. Triple Die Cut sentiment and tiny Create a Smile sentiment WISHING YOU. I can called my card finished. This is really not my CAS style but as you see I try my best to gave more white space  = white sentiment, and I am happy with the result :)

Challenges for my card are:

Retro Rubber Challenge #36: April Shower (The umbrella Stamp=Create a Smile, I bought at the end of 2014 if I am nont wrong remember, but I believe it was not bought at 2015)

Stempelkueche Challenge #42: Reggenbogen

W2CB #28: April Suns and April Shadows

Unicorn Challenge April #8: Favourite Time of The Year

Addicted to CAS #86: RAIN


Double D Challenge: April Shower Bring May Flowers



As I dont want to write a new post (too much post a day is not really me :)) I put this card also on this post :)

I like the Bee`s Knees`s Stamp set from Stamplorations the one with name FOLK FLOWERS, also I took it and started to stamped with versamark and gave white Embossing powder and heat it.  

Here is the card I made, I also design my own background paper by stamping many times "one flower " stamp and gave white embossing powder on it.

I am inspired by this card from Ksenija very lovely CAS card right?

 This is not my card but from Ksenija

I colored the flower and leaves with copic marker and I also gave Popcorn Pen as Texture for the middle of the flowers and for the leaves too.

The Sentiment are three Die Cuts THANKS (black 2x and white 1x)

Challenges for my card are:

Less Is More #271: 3 Stamps  (the main Image is 3 Stamps, as I dont like to buy Designed Paper I also designed my white paper with embossed stamped images)

  25. Two fabulous cards! I love the row of bright coloured umbrellas, and your LIM entry card is super with its self-coloured background giving just the right pop of texture behind the pretty flower. Lovely!

  30. Fun cards!! So glad you joined us at CTD!!

  31. Popping back to congratulate you for being a Top Pick at Retro Rubber, Monika! Congratulations!! Hugs, Darnell

  32. Two great cards on display here! I love your rainy day umbrella card very much. That dramatic cloudy sky looks so wonderfully realistic. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Stempelküche challenge.

  33. Sorry, I'm running late, have been quite social this weekend and very little crafting and blogging time was the result. But I'm here now. And glad I am, there's inspiration to be found here. You've managed to capture exactly what a rainy sky looks like! And I like how your design moves from depressive bad weather colors to happy rainbow colors! Very nicely balanced!
    I also like your very CAS flower card and the modern look of the flower. It's modern but in a retro 70s kind of way if you know what I mean? I very much like this style...

  34. Toll! My German is very rusty. Darling card with those bright umbrellas. Saw this over at W2cb.

  35. oh wow.. your rain-card is sooo pretty!!! Love the really stormy sky, and the contrast of these colorful umbrellas :-) sooo great!!! Thany you so much for joining our Stempelküche-Challenge

  36. Oh wow Monika! I absolutely LOVE your umbrella card!! I love the colorful strips on them and your cloudy sky with the rain is just perfect!! Very creative and fun!! :) I really love the pretty layout design on your floral card too!! The word die really stands out beautifully against your design! :) Hope you don't mind, but I'm trying to catch up today with my fave blogs! Hope you've been well! HUGS

  37. Beautiful cards! Thank you so much for playing along with RAIN challenge at Addicted to CAS!

  38. Monika...two absolutely fabulous cards! But those sweet umbrella's just steal the show for me, love them with your incredible stormy background. Hope you are doing well, sending hugs your way!

  39. Super card, Monika! You used many different techniques and I really like that you triple cut and stacked your sentiment. Awesome! Thanks for joining the Double D April Challenge!

  40. A very nice card.
