Cutting & Scoring:

- Calypso Coral – 4 ¼” x 3 1/8”.
- Whisper White – 4 ¼” x 3”, 5 ¼” x 4” (inside)
- Dry-emboss Pool Party panel and adhere to the card front.
- Use the largest scallop rectangle die to die-cut smaller Whisper White cardstock.
- Stamp and punch an umbrella from the DSP. TIP: It is easier to punch the umbrella then, using a self-made template, stamp the umbrella using the Stamparatus.
- Position the umbrella on the scallop rectangle and lightly pencil-trace the top outline. (This is to aid with positioning the flower stamps. Be sure to pencil in the outside tips)
- Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the two floral images a total of three times, making sure they do not extend past the outer ends of the umbrella. It is ok if some fall over the top line as they will be covered.
- Stamp one each of the two floral images onto a scrap of Whisper White. Use Blends to color all the flowers and leaves, as shown. Then, fussy cut the extra images.
- Glue the umbrella under the flowers (where the pencil marks are).
- Stamp the sentiment in the upper left corner. Glue the umbrella handle, as shown.
- Strategically dimensional one (or two) of the extra flower cluster images to cover up any gaps in stamped flowers.
- Glue the focal panel to the Calypso Coral panel then dimensional the unit to the center of the card front.
- Make a bow and add to the upper right corner with a glue dot.
- Finally, add rhinestones to the larger flower centers.

My Easter Card
What do you do when you don’t have any Easter stamps? You peruse the Stampin’ Up! catalog and search for inspiration. I found my inspiration on page 109 of the Annual Catalog. It’s a watercolor, eclipse card. I thought this style worked well for the card I wanted to share. It features the the Hand-Lettered Prose dies.
Here’s a quick recap of how it goes together:
- Cut Shimmery White card stock – 5/14″ x 4″.
- Use Aquapainters to give a wash with Pear Pizzazz, Coastal Cabana, and Highland Heather.
- “Splatter” ink onto the card front.
- Die cut the word with the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies.
- Layer the Shimmery White onto a Highland Heather base.
- “Pop up” the letters using pieces of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Add the “Blessings” sentiment from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set on a watercolor piece with Highland Heather ink.
- Die cut with the label from the Merry Christmas Dies.
- Attach the sentiment with Glue Dots to the front of the card.
- Color five Pearl Basic Jewels with Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends. Attach to front of card.
Please let me know if you have questions about this card or how it was created.
