April Showers

The current challenge at an Oldie But A Goodie challenge is the very apt April Showers, and that’s the inspiration for this cute Umberella Card.


Card Recipe:
Stamp: Hunkydory
Colouring Mediums: Memento Cocoa Ink Pad, Promarker Pens
Paper & Card: My Minds Eye, pearlescent card from stash
Tools: Tonic Studios Trellis Wall Die, Pick of the Bunch Punch & Stamp Set, Silhouette Cameo, Grand Calibur
Embellishments: double satin ribbon 5mm, crystals, pearl-ended stamen, buttons

To make this card, using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut the umbrella-shaped card base from pearlescent cardstock, with accents cut from double-sided My Minds Eye card.

I stamped the Hunkydory image three times, twice onto plain cardstock and then also onto offcuts of the My Minds Eye card. I then paper-pieced the layers together, combining using fussy cutting patterned card for the umbrella and flowers alongside colouring the main element of the image with Promarkers pens. Love the tiny baby penguin picnicing with the Hermoine Hedgehog!  Tonic Studio’s Trellis Wall Die provided the perfect backdrop for my finished stamped image.


Finally, I embellished the card with flowers created using the sepal punch from the Rose Pick of the Bunch Punch & Stamp Set. I stitched a recycled mother of pearl heart button to my satin bow. The little basket is a button that I’ve had in my stash for about 10 years!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
