Those of you that follow me... know I love punches... so really it was an easy choice for me to make as there is a lovely stamp set and coordinating punch in the new mini catalogue.

My card today is made using the Under my Umbrella stamp and punch bundle - Yay!!


This stamp set is great, not only does it have images that can be punched out with the punch, there are flowers and sentiments and even a set of wellies.

To make this 5 7/8" x 5 7/8" card I used the following card peices

Whisper White Thick -  for card base
Balmy Blue - 5 1/2 x  3 3/4"
Whisper White mat - 5 1/3" x 3 1/2"
Whisper White banner - 2" x 2 1/2"
Whisper White - piece to stamp and punch umbrella and stamp and fussy cut flowers
Basic Gray - piece to punch out umbrella handle


Stamp the raindrops all over the Whisper White mat with Balmy Blue.  Add more Balmy Blue colour by applying ink to the card mat with a sponge.
Tip:  Apply ink to your sponge, starting off the card apply ink in a circular motion working towards the middle.
Stamp the Umbrella using Memento Black ink and then punch out shape.
Add colour using the Flirty Flamingo dark and light Stampin' Blends
Punch the handle from Basic Gray.
Stamp the flowers using Memento Black ink onto scrap of Whisper White and then fussy cut out.
Colour using Stampin Blends: Granny Apple Green for leaves, Flirty Flamingo, dark and light and Daffodil Delight dark for flowers
Punch one end of Whisper White Banner piece using Delightful Tag Topper punch
Punch other end with Triple Banner punch
Stamp sentiment and flowers in space remaining and colour to match other flowers.
Tie a piece of  Whisper White Thick Bakers twine to banner and tie a bow.
Adhere all peices to the card as laid out, using dimensions/liquid glue
Apply Basic jewels
