Paper Craft Crew 199 Card Sketch

Hey there! It is a Wednesday... Are you shocked yet? I know I don't normally post on a Wednesday but I am so excited to announce that I am now on the Paper Craft Crew Design Team!! I am really excited about this and I am so glad to be a part of such a creative team!

This week we have an adorable sketch that Pam Staples has designed for us. It really got my creative mojo working for me again! When we (SU Demonstrators) got to see the new Stampin' Up! Catalog for the first time I had to have this set and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it first! I will get you the details below!

I have to say that I have had this umbrella shaker card idea in my head since we demo's could see the catalog! So it has been brewing for a long while! The Weathered Together bundle was honestly one of the first sets on my list to get... I mean it is a REALLY long list but I kind of knew what other people were chomping at the bit to buy and this cute little set was never mentioned...

My card base of Island Indigo is nicely matted with Crumb Cake card stock. My Whisper White layer was die cut using the Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies. I used the umbrella shape to cut out my window for my shaker card. I adhered the acetate with 1/8 inch Score tape and then used our new Foam Adhesive Strips to create the shaker part. The shaker mix is made with a lovely mix of Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and Seed Beads! The backing is the from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack. The elegant sentiment is also from the Weather Together set. I simply stamped this before created my shaker with Island Indigo. What's an umbrella without the handle?? You need a handle! Crumb Cake ink to the rescue on my little handle stamp and Voila!  The coordinating cloud was stamped using Pool Party ink and die cut with the above coordinating die set. To finish this card I used a quick trim of linen thread and cute little burlap banner! OOPS! Did mention a few more sequins???

Thank You so much for stopping by today!!! I can't wait to see what you all make with this weeks sketch!


  1. Congrats on the new design team Linda! Beautiful card!

  2. I love this card and commented on your other card using this set!! Can you tell me how you did the stamped image with the framelit - i.e., cutting out the "inside" of the umbrella and not the outside?? Thanks!

    1. So what I did was use the fine tip end of my stamp n write marker and free handed the outline of the cut out area...

  3. Great info! I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have  paper代写
