Cherry Blossom Umbrella

Julie Warner -

BEST OF 2013 (x3!)

A big congrats to Lesley aka Lionsmane, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS321)! What a fab gallery she has! There were many I wanted to case, and I finally chose her Pink Cat Baby Card. I kept the general layout but moved things a bit, the soft colors and embossed background. I used different images, different embossing folder and added some punched and colored flowers.

The images are from DRS Designs. I stamped the lovely umbrella twice, added some soft shading w/ Copic markers and cut both out. I used a stylus to add some shape and dimension to the top umbrella and attached it on the base umbrella w/ a little foam tape underneath the center. The narrow little ribbon bow was also colored w/ Copics before attaching.

The background was embossed and I punched a bunch of different sized hydrangea petals out, added a little shading and tiny black dots in the centers, then used the stylus to curl the petals a bit. The sentiment was die cut along w/ the pale pink backing oval to finish my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

Congrats again, Lesley, enjoy your week!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. How beautiful. So many little details. I love everything about this one–the double umbrella, the ribbon, the flowers. Gorgeous.

  2. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The coloring is awesome – and each one of those little flowers – so perfect. Great card. Love the saying too.
