April Challenge Reminder
by Dana Kirby


Good Morning Friends! It is Dana here today reminding you about our April Challenge, Puddle Jumping. 

Want to play along? 

The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme (Puddle Jumping), use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!


For my card today, I started my creating my card panel. I ink blended my background with Distress Oxide Ink in Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass. I then used the Whittle Cloud Border Dies and die cut my clouds from white cardstock. I stamped my sentiment from the Blooming Spring Stamp Set onto my bottom cloud border. Next, I attached my clouds to my ink blended background to finish my card panel.


Next, I did all of my die cutting. I die cut the Whittle Gator from Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended it with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. I then used the Raining Frame to die cut my umbrella from a piece of Shimmering Cardstock. I am in love with this cardstock, it adds the perfect amount of sparkle without all of the mess of glitter. 


To finish my card, I hooked my umbrella onto my gator's tail and attached them to my card panel with foam adhesive. The little gator attached to my sparkly umbrella just makes me smile!


Thanks for joining me today! I hope you get a chance to play along with this month's Challenge, Puddle Jumping! 


Now it's your turn!  Need a little more motivation? How about a prize?  The winner (chosen at random) of this challenge will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!

You have until 12 am US EST on April 30 to link up your design here!  We'll start a new challenge and announce the winners on May 1.   

Thanks for joining us!  We can't wait to see what you make!
