Make It Monday 147

Hi all!   It's been awhile since I've blogged....or created anything fun, for that matter!   After returning from vacation in the beginning of December, I was hit hard with a sinus infection.   And by the time that cleared up we were in the thick of Christmas baking, shopping, wrapping, etc.!   Anyway - I'm back!    My hubby got me a new camera for Christmas, so I've been trying to figure it out, lol!    I certainly have a ways to go, but I think I'll be able to get better pictures soon.   One day at a time, right!?  

So for the first thing I created since my (ahem) hiatus, I decided to play along with Papertrey's Make It Monday.   Betsy showcased multi-layer images, and I pulled out Movers & Shakers Sentiments and pieced together the 'Clouds' sentiment.   I stamped 'beyond' with Versafine and layered it, and I inked  'rainbows' with Memento markers and layered that.   They are popped up with dimensional tape, but it's hard to see that in the photo.   Before I added the dimensional layers, I masked the sentiment and used the banner string from Heart-2-Heart #5 as a rainbow - again inked with Memento markers.   For a subtle background I just adhered cloud dies and then matted the focal point with Blueberry Sky paper and called it quits!  I was sorely tempted to add some sequins, but I resisted!  I think simple was the way to go with this one.

Well, off to go clean up my mess....and maybe make something else!   Have a great weekend....


  1. Beautiful card and great job with the layering. I had thought about using this stamp set as well. I like that you made the word rainbows multicoloured.

  2. Ooh! such a pretty card. I love the subtle clouds in the background. I can see your cameras potential too - if you don't mind sharing, what kind of camera did you get? I need a new one soon too so I'm looking for ideas!

  3. @Jennifer Jackson - I got a Canon Rebel T2. So far I like it, but I'm still learning the ins and outs of using an SLR.....I've always used a point & shoot!!

  4. Oooh, I meant T3, just realized I made a mistake!


I appreciate your comments so much!
