We all have those friends who are there through thick and thin. Why not celebrate that friendship with this cute Under My Umbrella card? Because I combined that set with the sweet Little Ladybug set, it was super easy to create a sweet friendship scene.

First off, we need a little rain for our scene. That’s easy, just random stamp the raindrops with the stamp from the Under My Umbrella set in versa mark. Sprinkle the images with white embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.  Next, we need a little color. Create a wash with your aqua painter and Costal Cabana ink. Voila!

With so many cute stamps in the Under My Umbrella set, you can create sweet little scenes inside your card as well. I’m really diggin’ those boots.  In Louisiana, we call those white boots, shrimp boots. If you live in Southeast Lousiana, chances are you have at least one pair.

I think you guys know by now, I love the new Stitched So Sweetly dies. They have fast become a staple in my stash. I teach so many classes and cut so many kits, I’m thinking about getting an additional set. That’s how much I love them and hope they stick around for a while.

One of the best parts about the Under My Umbrella bundle is that it’s paired with a punch. I used that to punch out the umbrella. But, I didn’t have to stamp the image. Why? Because, beginning February 4th, we will also have a new designer series paper pack, Pleased as Punch. You’ll want to pick up multiple packs of this one. The images coordinate with not only the umbrella punch, but the heart and tulip punches as well.
