Happy Sunday Stampin’ Friends ~
Hope you are enjoying your weekend, they seem to go by so fast! Some of you will be watching the Superbowl today … Good Luck if you’re cheering on either the 49ers or the Chiefs. I thought we could have a little fun today … Battle of the cards!! A cardbowl of sorts!
It’s Day 3 of my “Pleased As Punch” Designer Series paper and today I’m using the umbrella design. I have created 2 cards slightly different because I couldn’t decide which way I liked it best, so I’m asking for your vote; which card layout do you like best.
Both card bases are the same, I started with the “rainy” side of the designer paper and then matted it with Whisper White and finally mounted that onto the Balmy Blue base. Next I punched out the “open” umbrella and the handle …
STAMPIN’ TIP: The pattern on the paper does not align with the punch, so I pre-cut my images out and then punched them. If you find it hard to get the cut piece into the punch, put it onto a sticky note and then slide it in. Easy breezy!
I used Mini Dimensionals to attach my assembled umbrella to a 2-3/8″ x 3-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The greeting from the coordinating “Under My Umbrella” stamp set was stamped in Balmy Blue. I then trimmed the Whisper White around the top of the umbrella … I just thought this looked neat! It highlights the umbrella but gives you a spot to stamp a greeting.
At this point I mounted my umbrella onto a piece of 3″ x 3-1/2″ Daffodil Delight cardstock … I wanted to add a little “sunshine” onto my card. This really creates a fun., bright focal point to the card. NOW is where I couldn’t make up my mind … do I mount it in the center or do I off set the umbrella piece of my card?
WHICH ONE DO YOU LIKE BETTER? Card #1 with the umbrella centered …
Or Card #2 with the umbrella off set …
I would love to hear which one you like best … Vote in the comment box below and let’s see which card WINS the Card Superbowl 🙂
Let me introduce you to the Under My Umbrella Stamp set …
Shower your loved ones in good wishes and flowers with the Under My Umbrella Stamp set. Line art images are fun to color and easy to customize for any occasion. The greetings in the stamp set work perfectly for thinking of you, sending love, wedding, or baby projects. Stamp the raindrop or flower images repeatedly to create backgrounds. You can also use them to decorate the umbrellas or the rain galoshes. This can also be purchased in a bundle with the coordinating Umbrella Builder Punch.
