For today’s cards, the design team is showcasing the SUPER ADORABLE Umbrella Pals stamp set and Umbrella Pals coordinating dies. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS stamp set! The images on this set are so stinking cute! This will certainly make anyone’s day!
As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I wanted to create a shaker card! I started out by stamping my images onto Neenah solar white card stock. I also stamped Newton and his girlfriend from the Newton’s Sweetheart stamp set. I used all the coordinating dies to die cut my images.
I die-cut another piece of 110 lb. smooth white card stock using the Frames & Flags die set to create my window. I adhered my Acetate sheet onto the window panel, and added foam tape. I also die-cut a piece of white card stock using the Sky Border dies, for the clouds, and another piece using the Land Border dies for the grass. I colored the “grass” with my Copic markers.
I used my sparkling clear sequins for my shaker element to make it look like water. Here’s my first card:
Don’t you just love the colors? I think this card is so cheerful and will definitely brighten someone’s day!
For my second card, I die-cut the umbrellas three times using the dies and colored them it with my Copic markers. I used my handmade sky stencil with the Sky border dies to create the clouds. Here’s my second card:
