"Under My Umbrella" Card Tutorial SNEAK PEEK

Hi Friends! I hope you had a great Christmas! I did, but it's hard to believe Christmas has come and gone for another year. I'll share some photos, but I'm on Grandma patrol today with our little 8 month old Livvy, so I've got to keep this post short. I thought I'd share a lovely card with you from our "Project Leaders Group", created by Stella MacKay.

  1. Using SNAIL, adhere Designer Series Paper to card front.
  2. Stamp umbrella with Blackberry Bliss ink onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock. Punch out umbrella and the umbrella pole handle. With a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the bottom back of the umbrella canopy, attach canopy to its handle and set aside to dry.
  3. Stamp sentiment on Whisper White with Blackberry Bliss ink. With a very lightly/barely wet moistened sponge, swipe down sentiment to lightly streak it to mimic the letters being dissolved by raindrops. A you are stamping this step and the next one, use the 2-7/8” circle die as a guide as to the best placement for the sentiment and raindrops.
  4. Stamp raindrops with Pool Party ink above sentiment then dab each raindrop with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.
  5. Die cut large scallop circle out of Daffodil Delight. With SNAIL, adhere Whisper White circle to Daffodil Delight scallop circle.
  6. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals as well as a narrow strip cut from its border for the handle and adhere the umbrella to the Whisper White circle then attach that piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Tie small bow, trim ends with Paper Snips and attach to umbrella with a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  8. Affix 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels on circle piece.

Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
