Mixing Old and New Supplies

Hello everyone! Nora here from A Creative Touch with a card that utilizes an older CAS-Friday stencil and one of the new stamp/die duos. I love pairing new collections with my older supplies to get more milage out of my hoarding!

I started off by using white embossing paste and the Modern Petals Stencil on a white piece of cardstock measuring 4" by 5 1/4." 

When the embossing paste was dry, I masked off portions of the background and created rainbow stripes with Distress Ink. I then mounted the panel over a black, A2 card base.

I die cut clouds and rain drops using the new Raindrops Duo stamp/die set. I used some gray Distress Ink to shade in the clouds and adhered them to the card front. I also applied dye ink to blend the blue on the raindrops. I adhered the precipitation underneath the clouds.

I stamped the sentiment onto a separate card panel in black dye ink. I used markers in rainbow colors to color in the word "rainbow." I adhered the sentiment to the card front using foam adhesive.

To punch these elements up a bit, I covered the clouds with clear shimmer, the raindrops with glitter and the rainbow sentiment with Glossy Accents. My card was complete!!

Now you may wonder why I used the Modern Petals Stencil when instead of the new Scattered Showers Stencil. Sometimes when I plan out my cards, I have a deeper meaning in mind. With this card, I used Modern Petals because April showers bring May flowers. I am so excited for spring and this was a kind of subliminal message.
