Every Little Bit "April" Directions

It's Wednesday which means it's time for another month's directions!
I've been having some problems getting my posts up but I'm determined to make sure that doesn't happen anymore. Please wish me luck! Apparently I need it.

It's actually cold and rainy here in Arizona today. This is unusual for the Phoenix area. So "April" seems very appropriate, even though it's only a few days until Christmas!
I hope you enjoy it.

These are the Stampin' Up supplies I used for the April picture:

Every Little Bit and Full Calendar Stamp Sets
Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, Marina Mist, Basic Gray, and Basic Black Classic Inks
Black Stazon Ink
Marina Mist Stampin' Write Marker
Naturals Ivory, Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake, and Basic Black Cardstock
Brights and Regals Brads
Modern Label Extra Large Punch
Magnetic Movers and Shapers Punch Windows Set of Four
Big Shot
Blender Pens


1. Cut the Crumb Cake Cardstock to 2 3/4" x 3 3/4".
2. Stamp "April" on a piece of Naturals Ivory Cardstock.
3. Punch it out with the Modern Label Extra Large Punch.
4. Cut out the Modern Label from the Magnetic Movers and Shapers Punch Windows Set of Four from Basic Black Cardstock.
5. Layer the two modern label pieces and adhere them to the Crumb Cake background Cardstock.
6. Cut out a free form cloud from the Bashful Blue Cardstock. Mine is about 2 1/2" x 1 1/4".
7. Sponge Marina Mist and Basic Gray ink on your cloud to give it a darker look.
8. Add lines into the cloud from your "lumps" so it looks like a fluffy cloud with the Marina Mist Marker. (You can see them in the picture easier than I can try to explain them!)
9. Adhere your cloud below the Modern Label "April."
10. Stamp umbrellas from "Every Little Bit" randomly under the cloud with Black Stazon Ink.
Mine just happened to be in a bit of a pattern but they don't have to be.
11. Color the tops of the umbrellas with a blender pen. I colored one each with Cherry Cobbler, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, and Garden Green Classic Inks.
12. Put a matching brad in the tops of each umbrella.

You don't realize how many steps there are in creating these little months until you write them all down. I hope I didn't miss anything!
Merry Christmas and Happy Stamping!
