Under the Weather

Have umbrella will travel. ( truly, I have one in every vehicle we own and my closet because, I cannot get my ears wet for a prolonged period and really that joke about webbed feet for people who live in Or. well, it's true for most of the state west of where I live) the funny thing is that all the umbrella's I own are black. So, I think that is the part that makes this Two Paper Diva's rain or shine stamp so fun for me is it is big enough to paper piece easily. The plaid on this version is from the new lawn fawn pad of plaid papers. the pink mulberry is unknown and the bottom print is from Basic grey. So, you see that tiny get well? ( that is a ooops, its coming in one of next weeks new release sets) This is also the card that almost didn't happen, I have those clear Tim Holtz diffusers that are for putting into an embossing folder to make part of your paper not emboss. So, I have this SU embossing folder that is supposed to look like snow falling and I thought you know some of this rain comes down Splat huge. lets try to use this diffuser plastic under the umbrella to keep the rain from falling in that particular part of the card. It kinda sorta worked (not as well as I would have liked) and then I decided to add some stickles glitter glue to the embossed dents where the rain was and there are also some drops over the plaid on the umbrella too. (It's hard to see) There is also some wink of stella over the marker parts of the handle of the umbrella. I don't remember which color it is, something that's lid looked close enough to the spring rain colored cardstock.  This one is 6" square in real life.

Oh, Stacy, I love this card with the sweet paper-pieced umbrella! Plaids are so "in" these days, and I love the "rain" you've added! Yes, rain here comes in huge splats too, and we've sure had our share plus this year in South Florida. I love the mulberry paper and the square card with the sentiments. We too carry umbrellas in our cars always, and they are black too. Love this sweet card, and it looks like you really enjoyed making it! Hugs, sweet friend!

I love umbrella stamps and I do like the way you have used this paper with yours. It makes a rainy day seem fun!

Another fun umbrella card! All my umbrellas are black, too! And we purposefully made it large enough to paper piece! Super fun!!
