Under My Umbrella Sneak Peak

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I created for a challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  It has been soFMS Final 416-001 long since I’ve done a challenge that I thought I would try & do more in the coming year.

It is also a sneak peak at one of the little Bundles from the new 2020 Occasions Catalogue, called Under My Umbrella.  The Bundle includes the Stamp Set – Under My Umbrella along with the Umbrella Builder Punch.

I’ve used Stampin’ Blends to colour my flowers popping out of the umbrella as well as the umbrella itself.  All coloured flowers have been stamped with Night of Navy Ink, just for a softer look.

The background was created by randomly stamping flowers onto a piece of Whisper White in different ink colours & then coloured with Light Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend.


Be sure to pop on over to Freshly Made Sketches & play along.  Thank you so much for a great sketch as it has wanted me to start creating again.

Reading & studying my bedtime book – Stampin’ Up!’s Idea Book & Catalogue, I hit across a small box using Level 2 Hotess Set.  Insead of making one of the many many Stampin’ Up! patterns available to us Demos, I decided to make a card, using the same set.
