I used the bundle, Under My Umbrella, to create today’s card. This bundle includes the stamp set, Under My Umbrella and the Umbrella Builder Punch. You can purchase both of these products separately but if you want both of them, be sure to use the special bundle item number and you’ll save 10%.
The base of my card is Thick Whisper White with a panel of Real Red cardstock. On Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the raindrops using Seaside Spray ink. The umbrella, handle, boots and flowers were all stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Ink and I used Real Red and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color them all in. The umbrella and handle were cut out with the punch and I fussy cut the boots and flowers.
I embossed the sentiment and here are some quick instructions how to do that:
Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy over the surface (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder). Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it. Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image. Shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen!
The umbrella and flowers were both popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals (the handle and boots were adhered with Multipurpose Glue).
