UNDER MY UMBRELLA SET IS GOING!

I love the sweet Under My Umbrella stamp set and the matching Umbrella Builder Punch. I’m sad that it is leaving. I really haven’t used it enough.

For our retiring class last week we used the Under My Umbrella for one of our cards. I think it was a popular card among the ones we made.

This card was inspired by a card by Mena Green from personally4u.blogspot.com that I found on Pinterest. I changed it up quite a bit.

I used the retiring 3D Lace Embossing Folder for the card mat underneath. The umbrellas were stamped on pieces of pretty Paper. You could use any but I ended up with the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper and the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper. They can be punched with the matching Umbrella Punch.

I have to say when I was making this card I had lots of umbrellas punched from all different patterns of paper. It was a fun process but to be honest I really didn’t have time for that. 🙂

Here is a couple of other cards I have made using this stamp and bundle set.

If you want to order this yourself I have to say I just noticed the Umbrella Builder Punch is no longer available.

The Under My Umbrella Stamp set is still available. See it -> HERE in my store.

UNDER MY UMBRELLA MINI CARD BOX

Yesterday I shared the swaps I received at our Team Recognition Day. Today I wanted to share with you our project we made.

It is a very cute mini card box made with the Gold Pizza Boxes and 3 little cards and envelopes. It was designed by our team leader Vanessa. I just have to show you.

This shows the mini cards inside the Gold Pizza Boxes. I love seeing them peek through the window.

To cut the window in the Pizza Boxes, use one of the circle dies in the Layering Circles Dies set. From the piece of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper cut the scallop circle then use the same size circle as used on the box to cut the centre out of the scallop circle to layer over the window. Place a piece of acetate inside the box window.

Here are the mini notecards. They had a piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the card front. The cute umbrellas from the Under the Umbrella stamp set were stamped on the pieces of DSP and punched out. The boots were hand-cut. A strip of the DSP lined the back of the envelopes. I realised now too that I forgot to trim the paper on the envelopes to curve them. I will fix that up but keep that in mind when creating them.

Isn’t this just a cute set. It makes a lovely gift.

Any of these products are available in my store to create them or if you need any other products.

UNDER MY UMBRELLA – FOR A CHALLENGE!

Over the weekend I joined in on an Online Craft Day with some Demonstrator friends.  It was lots of fun with creating and sharing.  We had challenges along the way too and even some business chat with the lovely Clare from Stampin’ Up! joining us.  We had all planned to meet together BUT that couldn’t happen … Never mind. 🙂

This card is one I created for one of the challenges.  It was a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge so you had to choose 3 items in a row in a box.  I chose Embossing Folder, Designer Series Paper and Diecut Shape.

I had yet to use the Under My Umbrella set so thought I would pull it out.

Stampin' Up! Under My Umbrella

How did I go with the items for the challenge??

Embossing Folder – I used the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I think I ran the card through a little tight.  It did buckle a bit.  Something to be aware of.

Designer Series Paper – This was the beautiful Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I  picked out the colours I used for the card from  this paper.  I chose Gorgeous Grape card mat. I used Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends as I didn’t have Melon Mambo Blends.  (I have just ordered them!!) and I used Rich Razzleberry too.

Diecut Shape – I diecut the white circle with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Ok, I did add a punch to this card too. 🙂  I needed that to punch out the umbrella with the Umbrella Builder Punch.

The layout for this card came from the Case This Sketch #376 sketch.

I was happy with the finished card. I think I need to pull this set out and use it more.

Thanks for visiting me.

Have an awesome week.
