You’re Always On My Mind Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Here today with a sweet card that I created using the Under My Umbrella Bundle from the Spring Mini Catalog and our March 2020 “No Matter the Weather” Paper Pumpkin.  I knew from the beginning that I wanted to pair up the boots with the Umbrella … I had a choice of the “pink” or the “green” boots that were left over from my other cards.

I choose the pink and combined it with Smoky Slate … so pretty together.  My stripped background paper is actually the inside of the envelope from my Paper Pumpkin kit.  I needed another color to go between my boots and my background so I went with Whisper White … it just seemed to “bright” so I toned it down my using my Aqua Painter to color wash the Smoky Slate and creating a fun background for my boots!

The umbrella was stamped with Smoky Slate onto the left over paper from the envelope, and then punched with the coordinating umbrella punch.  Both of these were popped up onto the die cut piece.  The die cut comes from the Stitched so Sweetly dies.  The greeting sentiment is from the Under My Umbrella stamp set and was stamped with the Smoky Slate and also die cut from the Stitched to Sweetly dies.

Supply List

My pretty little bouquet of flowers you should recognize from the Easter Card I did earlier this week … these and the heart come from the No Matter the Weather Paper Pumpkin kit.  Both are kissed with a little sparkle from our Wink of Stella pen.  Did you notice the sweet little raindrops?  They also come from the Paper Pumpkin kit.

I love combining the Under my Umbrella bundle with the No Matter the Weather Paper Pumpkin kit…. it expands the creativity level of the kit and the contents of the kit are so much fun to use with the stamp set and punch.

Thank you for hanging out with me today. Hope this was a little escape for a while and inspires you to hang out in your stamp room.

Stay safe, healthy and have a great day.  Linda

Simply Sunday: Pretty Cards that are Easy to Create

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you’re having a great weekend and enjoying the warming weather … at least here in Wisconsin. We may hit 50 Degrees!  It’s got me thinking Spring … put away the snow shovels and bring out the umbrella’s!  Today’s Simply Sunday card features the Under My Umbrella Bundle and the coordinating Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper.

The quickest and simplest way to create a card is to used your favorite designer paper…

Now that you have the Pleased As Punch designer series paper that coordinates with the Under My Umbrella bundle you can make cute cards in no time at all.  If you still don’t have these products yet, you can order them by clicking on the links below. I would love to help you if you do not have a demonstrator already.

My designer paper is cut 4″ x 5-1/4″ and is adhered to Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I then took my Umbrella Builder punch and punched out another umbrella top … I popped the punched umbrella piece over the top of the umbrella  on the designer paper with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I actually added a thin layer of the Wink of Stella onto the umbrella I popped up but the camera did not pick it up … it really adds a nice touch to the card.

The greeting comes from the Under My Umbrella stamp set and was stamped with Gorgeous Grape.  I then punched it out using the Timeless Label Punch.  I punched out a couple pieces in the Gorgeous Grape and used it to mat my greeting… then I popped the entire piece up using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This is such a cute and simple card … it is easy to create with our designer papers, and the Pleased As Punch is the right choice as it coordinates with the Under My Umbrella bundle.

Here is the supply list …

Have an awesome day!  Linda



Rain or Shine; You’re On My Mind Fun Fold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We made it through another Monday! I hope you got a chance to check out my card yesterday, those little boots just touch my heart ❤  Today I have another Under My Umbrella card for you created with the fun fold I shared with you on February 13th … my tulip card.  I am using the Pleased As Punch Designer Series paper again too …

We used the stamp set to stamp the designer paper with the stripes and then punched it out… stamped the handle and used dimensionals to secure the envelope.  Our greeting was stamped in Balmy Blue (and my little rain drops are a retired SU product).

The right flap overlaps our rain drop designer paper and when opened …

It looks like this.  Both sentiments on the outside and inside of the card come from the stamp set included in the Under My Umbrella Bundle… even the pretty little flowers on the inside come from this fab stamp set.  Layers are fun and when you can add the unique fold to your card creations, you’ll create a winner for sure.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card, and if you’d like the tutorial for the fun fun just head on over to my online store and purchase any one of the coordination bundles (see below). I will send you not only the tutorial for the fun fold but the other 3 cards as well, and a special hand stamped card from me. Hopefully you will also get one of those amazing Sale-a-bration items as well.

Thanks much for joining me today, it’s appreciated. Let me know if you have any questions on today’s card or anything else.

Have an awesome day ~

Life’s Showers, Bring Loves Flowers ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I’m late today with my post … bad router 😦  But I’m back and can’t wait to share today’s card with you.  Yesterday I said I would share cards from the “Under My Umbrella” stamp set … a must have on my Wish List. It was the little “boots” that got me.

Today’s card was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.  She used the small hearts paper from the “From the Heart” Specialty Designer paper, I used the same. I changed the orientation and a few other things to make it my own ….

This is one of the cards that my February Stamp Club made … this card ties in with the products we used last month and introduces the Under My Umbrella bundle.  The bundle includes the stamp set and a punch that punches the umbrella.

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.

We used the stamp set and Real Red ink to stamp onto our designer paper.  We then punched out our umbrella and trimmed it to the stamped lines.  Then we punched an umbrella and handle out of Real Red cardstock and used it to mat the designer paper punched umbrella.  The little boots were fussy cut and then colored with the Real Red Marker.

The greeting and floral stamps were stamped with Momento Ink and colored with our Stampin’ Write Markers (see colors below). Our greeting was punched using the Pretty Label Punch … which also has a Real Red mat.  Rain was stamped in Smoky Slate.

I wish I could tell you the talented demonstrator who inspired me to make this card but her link was not working properly, in other words, it did not direct me to her site. I just had her verbiage translated and discovered it was German.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card … I have another to share with the Under My Umbrella again tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by ~

Simply Sunday: Gettin’ Punchy

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Today I’d like to share a few cards with you that highlight the beautiful “Pleased as Punch” Designer Series Paper.  This little tour of cards will lead you to the “Under My Umbrella” stamp set … this will set you up for the cards I will be sharing with you tomorrow and Tuesday.

The “Pleased As Punch” Designer paper was introduced with the Coordination Product release.  These are special products created to coordinate with our favorite products from the January–June 2020 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration.

The “Pleased As Punch” Designer paper coordinates with the Heart Punch Pack, Tulip Builder and Umbrella Builder punches all from the Mini Catalog and the Bloom Punch which you can earn FREE during Sale-a-bration!

Here is a simple and cute card that I created with the Heart Punch Pack that is part of the Heartfelt Bundle found in the NEW Spring Mini Catalog. I embellished my punched hearts with pearls and the little flowers and greeting is part of the January 2020 Paper Pumpkin….

The pretty gingham background paper is included in the Pleased as Punch Designer Series paper!

This sweet card was created with the Small Bloom Punch that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration.  I teamed it up with two patterns from the Pleased as Punch Designer paper. You can actually punch out the flowers from the designer paper making this card super simple to recreate …..

You have just seen 4 patterns used in two different cards … the versatility of this amazing paper is endless.  Let’s move on to yet another card.  This card also featured that pretty pink gingham paper and highlights the tulips that coordinate with the Timeless Tulips Bundle

If the winter has you a bit punchy, then the Pleased as Punch Designer paper should be on your Wish List.  It coordinates with four different punch packs / punches yet can be used for any card and any occasion.

My last card comes from the Under My Umbrella bundle …

This pattern in the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper allows you punch both the open and closed umbrellas. I fell in love with this paper while creating all these cards but it was the “Under My Umbrella” bundle that inspired me to purchase it.

And it was those little boots that pulled at my heart strings … There was nothing stopping me for purchasing the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  You will see more in the next few days.

Until then … I hope you enjoyed see how versatile the Pleased As Punch Designer paper is.  Please note that this is a special product introduction that will only be available during Sale-a-bration … OR Until Supplies Last!

Thank you for hanging out with me this Sunday, and I’ll see you tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of your day ~
