Catherine Pooler Designs is releasing some new products!  It's the April Showers Bring... Collection and will be available on Wednesday April 14th at 9am EST for the general public BUT if you're a StampNation member then one of the many perks is early shopping for releases. This means StampNation members can shop on Tuesday, April 13th at noon EST. Not a member? Click HERE to learn more about it. 

There are 4 bundles in this collection - one of which is called the April Showers Bundle. This is the one I've been playing with and having an absolute great time doing so. 
I've got a fun card to share with you today and lots more coming soon so stay tuned. 

The April Showers Bundle includes the following:
- Puddle Play Stamp Set
- Puddle Play Dies
-April Showers Stamp Set
- April Showers Dies

I used 3 of the 4 items plus the Sunburst Strips Cover Plate Die which can be found in the Extras Bundle. Don't forget that any and all of the items can be purchased individually but you do save a little if you purchase a bundle.

Okay, now for the card.
I started by stamping the sentiment repeatedly, filling a panel in a variety of colors then cutting out the clouds using the April Showers Dies. I saved the panel for a card I'll share another day.

Next I used the Sunburst Strips Cover Plate Die. This is a larger die which allows you some options for cutting it down for some different looks. I used the large stitched rectangle die from the Postage Stamp Die set to cut it down. I think this will be a great die for scrapbooking too.

I did some ink blending on another piece of white card stock to create the blue layer. I stamped the puddle in the middle of this panel then cut it out with the coordinating die before adhering the panel to the card base.  Next I added the sunburst piece with some craft foam.
I stamped the bear and cut him out with the coordinating die. I colored in the image using a blender pen and a few ink colors. 
I added the clouds and the puddle directly to the sunburst layer then added the bear with some more craft foam.

I love how this card has the sentiment in the clouds and not in a traditional way.
