Relax under the Umbrella

The following card is using MFT Color Challenge 167 with a beach theme for the Retro Rubber Challenge.

I used the stamp set Beach Happy from SU, dated 2019. The ink colors I chose are SU Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and GKD Kraft. I used SU Crumb Cake cardstock for the card base and the Seaside Embossing Folder also by SU, retired. I used a stitched rectangle die, from The Stamps of Life, to cut the umbrella images out and the size wouldn’t fit on an A2 size card, so I made a 5 X 7 inch card base so the three umbrellas would fit across the card. I used partial embossing to make the stitched border around using a slimline die, but then I felt it was missing something so I added the embossing. I saw this idea on Pinterest for this stamp set, and modified it to fit the color challenge and the size of my dies.

Red and Pink Umbrella

I have been stamping in red and pink for a color challenge.

For my card, I stamped in Flirty Flamingo and Real Red all placed on white cardstock. My pink looks a bit darker than Flirty Flamingo as it took three times in my MISTI to get a cleanly stamped image. I decided to go with it, rather than start over. The center of the umbrella is in Real Red. The cardbase is Real Red along with designer paper. I have a few sets of DSP purchased from the Clearance Rack and one had was Regal colors which contain Real Red. I chose the side with dots rather then the stripes on the other, to go with the dots in the umbrella.

The stamp set used is umbrella4you along with the umbrella die all from The Stamps of Life. I added a bit of raindrops using gray colors from Lawn Fawn.
