Under My Umbrella featuring the Pleased as Punch DSP

If you’re living in the UK like me then you are probably sick of all the rain we’ve being having, especially after the last few days. If you’ve been affected by the floods then my heart goes out to you, nothing could be worse than losing your home.

These two cards featuring the Under My Umbrella stamp set I hope will bring a little cheer to some of you. I think this is a great set mostly because I love all the sentiments, they’re perfect for sharing a little love which you can never have too much of. I also love that this set comes with a matching punch and now for a limited time some matching designer paper, meaning card making is quick and simple.

Uder My umbrella PaP DSp Card 1

This first card features the raindrop pattern from the new Pleased as Punch designer paer, this is my favourtie, how cute are those raindrops? Thats rain I can enjoy. I’ve paired this paper up with Gorgeous Grape, using some ink, a punched out umbrella top and some of the Mini Striped Ribbon. I’ve used three quarters of the second largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies to stamp my sentiment on and to act as a focal point.

For the second card I chose a colour scheme of Coastal Cabana and Petal Pink. This is a very similar design to the first card but instead of adding ribbon I’ve added some flowers stamped and coloured in Stampin’ Blends.

Two quick cards made with the Under My Umbrella bundle and Pleased as Punch DSP and there are many more combinations you could explore with these products.

Petal Pink Lasting Love Card

Today I’m sharing the love with this card made from the Last A Lifetime Bundle. This is a bundle themed around love and weddings and features some gorgeous dies. Today I’ve chosen to focus on the floral images in the stamp set and their matching dies.

For my card background I chose a sheet of petel pink designer paper which has Champagne foiling on from the Parisian Blossoms collection, I love this design for backgrounds.

I stamped my greeting onto the second largest die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. To add some more of the champagne colour to my project I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and stamped the edges of my nested Label with the large floral die from the stamp set, this adds a nice subtle shimmer to the greeting panal and ties it togther with the background.

To finish the card I added two of the large stamped floral springs which have been stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured with Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. As a finishing touch I added coloured the berries on the floral springs with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint using a Blender Pen to apply the paint to my project.

This card would make a lovely wedding or anniversary card or just to let someone know you love them whatever time of year.

Dino Diecuts Card

The one thing I’ve always loved about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination between products. Most of the time this has been matching colours between cardstock and ink. Since the introduction of pruduct suite where we’ve had stamps, die sets ans even dsp that coordinated the project possibilities are endless and its actually hard to make a bad card.

Some of my favourite coordinating products from this years annual catalogue are products from the Dino Days suite, I love how the die set matches the stamps and even one of patterns on the dsp produces detailed die cut dinosaurs in seconds.

This means when you’ve realised your out of birthday cards for the kids party starting in an hour you dont need to rush to the shops. Just pull out a die cutting machine, the Dino dies and the Dinoroar paper and you can make this card in less than ten minutes. Meaning you’ll have one happy birthday boy and won’t be late to the party.

Merry Christmoose Card

Have you managed to pick up the Merry Moose bundle yet? Its low stock so many of you must love him as much as I do. I thought I’d give him another outing before he sells out and add in the cute little raccon for company.

I’ve used the Buffalo Check stamp as my background, stamping Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock to give the card a Nordic vibe.

I used some of the Satin Edge Ribbon in Crumb Cake from the Come to Gather suite across the middle of the card. Of course no card would be complete without a greeting and what better one than Merry Christmoose!!

Incredible Peacock Card

I loved the Noble Peacock Suite of products straight away, but it was more the gorgeous foiled designer paper and the ribbon which drew me in, I wasn’t too fussed for the peacocks if I’m honest. I used the one code for the whole suite when I ordered, mainly because I’m lazy! I’m glad I did through because I love this peacock now I’ve had a play and have some more ideas brewing with what to do with it.

This quick card uses two pieces of foiled card measuring 12.4cm x 8.5cm to create the two layers to create the background.

The peacock was stamped first in Pretty Peacock and then the tail detail was added with Old Olive. To fill in the face and belly of the peaock I took n aqua painter and gently coaxed some of the stamped ink into the white areas, this did leave it a little blury but I still like the effect.

I finished the card with a greeting stamped onto the second smallest of the Stitched Nested Label Dies and a little touch of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Ribbon which I adore.
