CARD: Under My Umbrella

This is a fun card we made at a class recently!  I love the Under My Umbrella set!  Add the Umbrella Builder Punch, and there's no limit to the fun things you can do!!!


The punch wasn't used for the card itself, but to create a mask!  I stamped the top of the umbrella onto a post it.   I carefully cut this out, starting from the middle of the umbrella--you're going to use the "outside" of the post it note, not the umbrella image.   Place the mask over your stamped image for the card front, and now you can stamp the flowers without worrying about stamping "outside the lines". 

Here are the fun items used on today's card:

Do you ever have times you want to make something, but you just aren't sure where to start? It's the blank canvas dilemma of having too many choices. Often, when I'm not sure how to start, I let the artists at Stampin' Up! help me.

Suites, kits, and medleys - oh my! These artist-designed sets of coordinating products are a great place to get your inspiration flowing. Start with a simple kit project and step it up. Or look for a color combination, or a whole design theme. I hope this tip helps you the next time you are looking for inspiration!

I'm sharing this elegant card tutorial with my newsletter subscribers featuring the Boho Indigo Product Medley. This gorgeous collection includes stamps, dies, paper, ribbon, die-cuts, and more! It's packed full of supplies that will inspire your creativity. In this tutorial you'll also learn how to create a masked Embossing Paste background.

I get asked what the difference is between Suites, kits, and medleys? Although they are all groupings of coordinating products to make your crafting experience easier, there are a few difference.

Suites are entire collections of themed products that coordinate. A suite has at least one stamp set, sometimes two and usually has patterned paper, dies or punches, ribbon, and embellishments.

Kits include pre-designed and pre-cut projects. They can be all-inclusive or can include project supplies with coordinating stamps and ink available separately.

Medleys are more like a mini-suite. They are a collection of coordinating supplies, but not as large as a suite, so you get a bit of everything to inspire your creativity at a budge-friendly price point.

Embossing Paste dries quickly so it's best to work with it quickly, and clean your tools while it is still wet. Don't worry about perfection, variations in depth and texture improve the effect of Embossing Paste.
