Under My Umbrella Card

You may have noticed that I’m currently a little obsessed by Creative Challenges! I think they are a great way to spark creativity and encourage you to try different colour combinations and styles of project. Today I want to share with you a card I created which actually meets the requirements for two Challenges! These are: the latest Papercraft Crew Challenge (PCC #375) and The Spot Challenge (#103). If you would like to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in, you can find the details on their websites: Papercraft Crew and The Spot. Here are the challenges…

If you would prefer to watch me make the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch me video tutorial.

I decided to use the super cute Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Stamp Set combined with the Stampin’ Up! Stitched So Sweetly dies. The card follows the sketch from the Papercraft Crew challenge and uses the colour combination (Rococo Rose, Basic Grey and Soft Sea Foam) from The Spot challenge!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Basic Grey cardstock and I have followed this with a slightly smaller layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies I cut out a rectangle of Basic Grey cardstock and a slightly smaller rectangle of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and layered them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The boots are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and coloured using the Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends. These are then fussy cut.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Grey ink onto Soft Sea Foam cardstock and cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly dies. The boots are adhered to the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I have coloured a length of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using the Rococo Rose Dark Stampin’ Blends and adhered this to the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is attached to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is provided by a few Soft Sea Foam Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
