Good Morning! Last week when the tropical storm came through, I decided I needed to pull out the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella photopolymer stamp set to cheer up a rainy day. And then we lost power for a couple of days and I couldn’t blog, so I get to finally share it today! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
My layout was inspired by the pretty Fab Friday 195 Sketch Challenge. Check it out:
I embossed a panel of Calypso Coral card stock with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Calypso Coral card base. I adhered a panel of the Calypso Coral with Whisper White dots Playing with Patterns designer series paper to a Whisper White mat so that only two sides of the Whisper White shows (the right and bottom sides). I adhered the DSP panel to the upper left corner of the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the umbrella from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella photopolymer stamp set in Night of Navy ink on the Playing with Patterns multicolor circle paper. I punched it out with the Umbrella Builder Punch. I punched another umbrella top from Whisper White card stock and adhered it to the back. I punched out an umbrella handle from Silver Foil. When using the punch, if you don’t have enough paper to position the paper properly, adhere it to a post-it-note so you have a handle to move the paper around until you get the alignment you want.
I stamped the boots from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a small panel of Playing with Patterns DSP and fussy cut it out with my paper snips. I stamped the flowers three times in Night of Navy on Whisper White and colored the flowers with the Purple Posy, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the flowers. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy on a strip of Whisper White and trimmed the end with the new Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment, two flowers and boots on the card with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the umbrella handle with liquid glue and popped the umbrella on top with dimensionals. I adhered flowers to the top of the umbrella and finished the card front with a resin dot and Night of Navy bow.
I stamped the flowers again on the lower left corner of a Whisper White panel in Night of Navy Ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends just like the flowers on the front. I added a strip of Playing with Patterns DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up Under My Umbrella stamp set and Umbrella Builder punch are perfect for making cheerful cards for any occasion! And the perfect accompaniment is the Playing with Patterns 6″ x 5″ designer series paper.
