5 Minute Monday ~ Flowering Rainboots Make an Exit


Perfect.. we are back up and running following the aftermath of last weeks ferocious storm! I hope everyone else is as well. 

Today's 5 Minute Monday is of course quick & easy, as always...

It features the Flowering Rain Boots Bundle which will be leaving us at the end of June, and will actually be available on the "Last Chance" product sale for the month of June while supplies last. I will link this sale when it starts on June 1st.

The Flowering Rain Boots Bundle has been extremely popular, and in fact have been in the top 3 of my most popular cards on Pinterest as well as is my Online Shop. 

So it seems people really like those Rain Boots! 

So this is your chance to grab them before they are gone.  

Today's card also features one of the New In Colors for 2022-24 ~ Tahitian Tide Cardstock & Tahitian Tide Ink 

Parakeet Party Ink

Daffodil Delight Ink

I used one of the many beautiful patterns in the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper in the background of the card. 

Obviously this card can be made using any of the amazing ink colors, however I wanted to feature something from the brilliantly shaded new in Colors 2022- 24. They are positively eye popping. 

When making your card remember, use what you have. This layout will work with a variety of stamp sets or bundles. 
If you don't have dies to cut out pieces, then just fussy cut around your shapes, it's really quick and painless.

Here's another sample of this card using the Sweet Sorbet Cardstock & Ink 

The above card was the exact same layout only using a piece of Sweet Sorbet paper from the In Color 2022 -24 Designer Series Paper.

Such playful patterns. 

Just to give you an example of the versatility of this card design, I made up a quick card using the Sweet Songbirds Bundle. It's incredibly easy to create with since it has a builder punch, but mostly cuz it is so darn cute!
Somewhere between completing this card and taking the photos I seem to have found some extra ink that didn't belong there, so just ignore that.

This card used the same layout, the same Designer Series Paper in the Parakeet Party color, and I added a few Fun Flower Resin Shapes.

These are just such a cute addition to any card!
