Oh, Happy Day – Playing in the Rain

Welcome back!  Has the time change knocked you off your game?  I cannot believe it is already the afternoon…

Anyway, today I am playing with the Atlantic Hearts (#515) Sketch with the new color set suggested by Paper Players (#631) using the Playing in the Rain stamp set.  It is a cool and dreary rainy day but I am hopeful that the sunshine will be out tomorrow!

Here is the result:


  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5½” x 4¼”) Granny Apple Green Striped patterned piece of paper from the now retired Sale-a-bration Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Cross Strip Panel: (5½” x 2½”) Daffodil Delight Floral piece of patterned paper from the 2022/2023 Brights Collection Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Center Cross Strip: Whisper White Flax Ribbon (retired)
  • Sentiment Circle: Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, Oh, Happy Day, was stamped with Granny Apple Green ink and then die-cut with the (2⅛”) Stitched Circle die from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.
  • Focal Image – Happy Rabbit: Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The Rabbit was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
    • The Rabbit’s Nose and Ears were colored with the retired Light Pirouette Pink Stampin’ Blend Marker.
    • The rest of the Rabbit image including the Water Puddle was water-colored with Smoky Slate and Tahitian Tide inks using the Fine-Tipped Water Painter Brush.
    • An Umbrella Handle was hand-drawn with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.
    • The Rabbit/Puddle/Umbrella Handle image was fussy-cut with Paper Snips.
    • Coat and Umbrella: Tahitian Tide Dotted patterned piece of paper from the 2022/2024 In-Color Collection Designer Series Paper pack.
      • The Rabbit’s Coat and the Fox’s Umbrella were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the patterned paper and fussy-cut.
  • Decoration – Daisies: Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The Flower image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Colors: Dark Daffodil Delight, Light Granny Apple Green and Tahitian Tide.
    • The Flowers were also fussy-cut.

All elements were adhered to the card base.  The Coat was Paper-Pieced in place and Happy Rabbit and his Umbrella were popped up with Dimensionals.  The Daisies were added, completing the card.

I love the expression on the Rabbit’s face, don’t you?
