Under My Umbrella, Shower Card, 2020 Spring Catalog

When I saw this card on Pinterest, I knew that I just HAD to make it.  I clicked on the photo and it took me to a main page to order Stampin' Up! products. I was hoping for some instructions but it wasn't there, so this is how I did it.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Gray Granite.  

I cut a 4"x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  I taped it to the card base.

I cut a 4" x 4-7/8" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock.  I textured it using the "Corrugated" embossing folder. I taped it on top of the Basic Black piece.  

I cut a 3-3/4" x 4-7/8" piece of Whisper White card stock.

I took the largest circle die and with a pencil, I lightly traced it onto the Whisper White piece.

I then stamped the two smaller flower cluster images from the "Under My Umbrella" stamp set. I used black Memento ink to stamp them. I alternated them as I stamped around the circle.  There were a few spots that I didn't quite pay attention and the circle got a little off.  Try not to look too closely at that!

I took my markers out and I colored the leaves using using Granny Apple Green.  I colored the center of the flowers using Crushed Curry and I colored the flowers using Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, and Highland Heather.  L set it aside to dry. Before I assembled the card I took my art gum (kneadable eraser) and I erased the pencil lines.

I stamped the umbrella from the "Under My Umbrella" set using black Memento ink. I colored it in using my light Bermuda Bay Blends Pen.  I then punched the umbrella out with the matching punch.  It's an easy enough outline that you can fussy cut it with ease.

I stamped the umbrella handle using black memento ink. I punched it out and I glued the top end to the back of the umbrella.  

I stamped the words from the same "Under My Umbrella" set using black memento ink.  I fussy cut them out. I kept the edges round, no sharp edges.  

I set the umbrella and words in place using Dimensionals.

I had a few clear dots left over from my April Paper Pumpkin set and I added them to the front of the card.

And that was how I made that card.  It was fun and I especially loved the coloring. If I were to make another one, I would pay better attention to the placement of the flower so it looks more rounded.

Thank you ever SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
Wanda
