Hi Friends,

How are you all doing? I hope you are all keeping well and please know that I have you in my thoughts and prayers. It’s a difficult time for everyone and loneliness can creep in. So, I want to bring you some joy in the projects that I make and hope to inspire you to keep creating.

I just received the Stitched Lace Dies in my last order and wanted to use it straightaway.  It looks so pretty as a background for this lovely umbrella from the Under my Umbrella bundle. The images in the Under my Umbrella stamp set remind me of storybook images and pictures I used to dream up in my mind when reading Enid Blyton stories. They’re so cute. 

I sponged the banner with Blushing Bride on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock. I had planned on doing some watercolouring but then decided against it, so you could use just regular Whisper White cardstock for this. Then I trimmed a piece off the top to stamp my sentiment on. A piece of the Copper Dotted Treat Bag makes a nice addition to the banner.

Umbrella punch with Stampin' Up! products and pleated ribbon

To create the umbrella, I started off by stamping the flowers on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Crumb Cake ink. Then I stamped the umbrella image in Blushing Bride over the flowers.

The punch leaves a white border around the umbrella, which in this instance showed up my flowers outside the lines – which didn’t look that good. To get around this, I punched the umbrella, aligning the bottom of the umbrella right along the line. Then I used a post-it-note to attach to the umbrella image, re-inserting it twice into the punch to get the two sides flush against the lines. You could fussy cut it but I think this gives a better finish.

The ribbon has been pleated using Tear n’ Tape and then secured with another piece on the back. I’m not a fan of sewing so glue is my friend and papercrafting was made for me.
