Paper Adventures Team Hop - Weather

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I am so excited and honoured to be hopping with my friend Kelly Kent and the Paper Adventures Team today.

The theme for this hop is Weather!

I have decided to create a card with the fun Under My Umbrella stamp set. I wanted to make a card for a very special friend who has been under the weather for the past few weeks.  I want to let her know that I am here for her and will post this too her today. With everything that is going on at the moment it is important to realise that for some people it is even harder when they have health issues compounding the effect of the pandemic.

  1. Start with a Magenta Madness card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half.
  2. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to measure 10cm x 14.4cm. 
  3. Cit another piece of Whisper White card stock to measure 9.7cm x 14.1cm. Emboss 5cm of the base and 5cm of the top of this piece with the Greenery Embossing folder.
  4. Tie a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the lower embossed area securing at the back with Tear n' Tape. Tie a piece of Linen Thread in a bow on the left hand side. 
  5. Glue the last two layers together and leave to dry.
  6. Stamp the two gumboots on a piece of Whisper White in Daffodil Delight ink and colour with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  Fussy cut both boots out.
  7. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the two flower bunches on Whisper White card stock. I first coloured the outline of the flowers with a Magenta Madness Stampin' Write Marker and then stamped it. Then colouring the leaves with a Just Jade Stampin' Write Marker and stamped again. I then coloured the bunches with the Magenta Madness and Just Jade Stampin' Blends. Fussy cut these bunches out.
  8. Stamp the sentiment from on a strip of Whisper White card stock in Magenta Madness ink and cut it down close to the words with your trimmer and banner the end with paper snips. 
  9. Die cut a piece of vellum using the second largest Stitched Shape Circle die.
  10. Use dimensionals to position the flowers on the gumboots. Then use dimensionals to adhere the Gumboots to the vellum stitched circle. Then use dimensionals to adhere to the embossed Whisper White matt layer. Make sure you hide the dimensionals behind the Gumboots so that you don't see them through the vellum.
  11. Glue the sentiment layer to the Vellum Stitched Circle.
  12. Pop the card front up on the Magenta Madness card base using dimensionals.

Make sure that you head over to the talented Lisa Whitehead for her Weather inspired creation! She is next on the Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop!
