Umbrella Card

Shirley and I met Denise Lewis last week for lunch and a trip to Scraptopia in Ada.  It's one of the best scrapbook stores in the state!  While shopping, I saw a set of stamps with coordinating dies to use in the Cuttlebug.  This was something new, to me.

I bought the set because of the sentiments; I know I'll probably be too lazy to use the die very often since I make multiples of all my cards. Instead, I used an umbrella from the Cricut cartridge, Nine Months, and Make the Cut software.  That way I could resize the image and cut a mat full at one time.

The stamp/die set is from My Favorite Things.  It contains an umbrella die and eleven sentiments plus raindrops and hearts.

The base of the umbrellas is dark brown cardstock, the umbrella top was inked and I added some pen stitching before pop dotting it onto the base.  Then I used the small single heart stamp and stamped over it for the raindrops.

Love it! I had so much fun with ya'll. I see more trips to Ada in my future - especially when I get my new craft room put together!
