Make It Monday: Under My Umbrella Love’s Flowers Card

This week I’m designing projects for my April Simply Sweet Stamp Club and am excited to use one of my new favorite stamp sets Under My Umbrella. It’s perfect for Spring! I thought it would be especially fun to show my guests the fun and simple technique of stamping on Designer Series Paper (DSP) for a unique look.

What different ways do you use your DSP? Share in the comments below!

To give my card a unique fold, I cut off 3/4″ of the front panel and die-cut with the scalloped edge from Stitched Be Mine dies. 

The colors in the Peaceful Poppies DSP make for a fun springtime color combo. I also love how the polka dots in the Whisper White Tulle Ribbon compliment the simple polka dots in the DSP. 
To create the unique patterned look, stamp the umbrella from the Under My Umbrella stamp set on a polka dot piece of Peaceful Poppies DSP.  

Next, manually cut or punch out the image. Personally, if there’s a punch, let’s use it! LOL 

“Make It” Instructions
  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 10-1/4″ piece of Petal Pink cardstock. Score at 5-1/2″ to create card base. 
  2. Die cut edge of shorter front panel with scalloped edge from Stitched Be Mine dies. 
  3. Adhere a 4″ x 4-1/2″ Petal Pink/Blackberry Bliss print of Peaceful Poppies DSP to front panel.
