New Die-Cut Reveal at Stuck on You Sketches---Umbrellas

The die-cut team at Stuck on You Sketches has a new reveal up today---umbrellas!
I decided to make a card...
I am not a HUGE card maker, but the sentiment popped into my head as soon as I saw the challenge...
I layered gold under my umbrella, so just the gold polka-dots show through.  I used two colors of vellum for the border at the top and the raindrops.
But my favorite part is the background stamp---I used watercolors instead of ink and I love how it turned out...
the trick that I learned through trial and error was to not let the watercolor paint be too wet.
Make sure you head over to the Stuck on You Sketches blog for the full Design Team reveal.  Hope you are able to link up your umbrella project for a chance to win a great prize!  Thanks so much for dropping by today and have a fantastic weekend!


  1. What a great card considering you don't think of yourself as a "card person". I feel the same way too. Love the watercolor stamped image in the background. This card would definitely cheer up anyone! Thank you for the crafty inspiration!
