My Umbrella

My Umbrella card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps
Here's my card for this month's Viva la Verve sketch.  I created an encouraging design using Verve's Rain or Shine stamp set.  The outline umbrella image was stamped in black ink, then filled in with the solid image using red ink.  I used foam tape to adhere the umbrella to a pale aqua circle.  To fill in the scene, I tucked a stitched cloud die cut beneath the umbrella and added a trio of white sequin "raindrops" around it.  The finished mini scene was matted on a yellow circle.  To go with the solid umbrella, I found a dotted patterned paper with some red in it.  I cut it down to a square and rounded the edges, then matted it with yellow, too.  The panel was adhered to an aqua cardstock panel, then topped with a long aqua checked strip that runs the length of the panel.  I added the image panel on top.  The umbrella sentiment was stamped on a yellow circle and placed at the bottom of the image panel. 

Materials Used:
Rain or Shine stamp set (Verve Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Luxe Love Letter inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Aqua Mist cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Daffodil Delight and Shimmery White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Quite Contrary-Jack and Jill 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye); circle dies (Spellbinders); stitched cloud dies (Lil' Inker Designs); white sequins; corner rounder; foam tape


  1. Wonderful sentiment on this precious card.
