I’m excited to share a bright-and-sunny card I made for this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge. Not only does the card feature a Spring-like combination of colors, but it offers a sneak peek at some wonderful, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. What fun! Here’s my card:
- Under My Umbrella. In case you’ve not yet seen it, here’s a look at Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog cover that is filled to the brim with gorgeous poppies:My card features another Spring-themed product, the Under My Umbrella Bundle. The bundle includes the Under My Umbrella photopolymer stamp set and Umbrella Builder Punch. I’m convinced this will be one of the top sellers in Stampin’ Up!’s new catalog. Here’s a look at this new bundle:Note: There are two umbrellas in this stamp set and punch – one is an open rain umbrella, and one is a partially-closed parasol. Both are pretty great!
- Paper Piecing. I employed a little paper piecing on my project so that my umbrella and galoshes would be bordered by a thin frame of Whisper White to match the borders around the Stitched Squares and Daffodil Delight card panel. I stamped the umbrella on a Highland Heather piece of Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and also stamped the umbrella on Thick Whisper White. I snipped the Highland Heather Umbrella and punched out the Whisper White umbrella. I glued the snipped Highland Heather on the punched Whisper White one for a fun border.The galoshes were handled the same way as the umbrella except that there’s no punch for the boots. I stamped the galoshes on Thick Whisper White and cropped them with my Brother Scan & Cut, leaving a small border. I stamped them on a Daffodil Delight piece of Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, snipped that out and glued it on the image I had cropped from Whisper White.
- Spring Colors. The Coastal Cabana backdrop on this card (the panel just above the base and just below the umbrella and galoshes) is a beautifully textured page from the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in Follow Your Art:If you like this mix of Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather, please save this for future reference:
