My card for today is in appreciation for us getting sunshine for the next several days!  I had a few cards made since I’ve been isolating myself.  But with the gorgeous weather, it inspired me to make one to celebrate the clear sky.

Before I get to today’s project, I want to make sure you have seen the Third, and final, release for Sale-A-Bration.  We only have a few days left and this is the extra ones through the end.  You must use the numbers assigned to this Final Release and not the numbers for these items that are in the catalogs.

Ok…  Now on to today’s card.  Are you thinking Bright




You got the Bright part correct. I love bright colors and the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper fits the bill perfectly.  I have had this “frame” from that striped piece in my brain for a while.  I just could not get it to work out on paper.  It still isn’t what I envisioned, but this is what I ended up with.  After I had everything together, it hit me to miter the corners of my striped frame.  Just a tad too late for that on this one.

The idea for the card was HOPEFULLY saying farewell to the umbrellas and rain boots for a while!!

I have used three different pieces of the Pleased As Punch DSP.  The umbrella is punched from the umbrella piece using the Umbrella Builder Punch that is part of the Under My Umbrella Bundle.  The Boots are stamped onto the flower piece that pairs with the Small Flower Punch in SAB and is going to carry over to the next catalog.  And of course the border which is the multi stripe piece.

The umbrella punched out but the boots were stamped in Gray Granite on the DSP and then fussy cut using my Paper Snips.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Under My Umbrella.  It is stamped in Balmy Blue (just like the beautiful clear sky!).  Those layers are the  1 3/8 scalloped circle punch and the  1 1/4 circle punch.

I almost went with the Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon, but decided the Gray Granite version played off of the gray outline of the rain boots.  I tied a double bow using the 1/8″ Whisper White Sheer Ribbon.

Thank you for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.
