Jessica’s Blue Umbrella Card

Visit the Lawn Fawn blog today for our Big Giveaway and the start of March Inspiration Week!

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Inspired by a Book, Movie, Song challenge!  I created a card using the Pixar short, The Blue Umbrella, as my inspiration!

To start, I stamped the umbrella from Hello Baby onto a stack of full sheet sticky post-it notes and fussy cut them to create a bunch of umbrella masks!  Then I started stamping my umbrellas with Copic-friendly Jet Black ink on a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock.  As I stamped each umbrella I’d cover it with a mask so I could stamp the next one to create a sea of umbrellas on a rainy day.  I left the masks in place and blended stormy sky, faded jeans, chipped sapphire, and black soot distress oxide ink over the panel.  I splattered it with water, blotted off the excess, and let it dry.

Once the panel was dry I removed the masks and colored my umbrellas with Copic markers.  I stamped faces on two of the umbrellas from All the Clouds to give them a little personality.  Then I die-cut the Puffy Cloud Border with white cardstock and vellum.  I added a sentiment from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters and layered the clouds on the top of my panel.  Finally I stamped lots of raindrops and rain from Hello Baby and Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters with Versamark and heat-embossed them with silver sparkle embossing powder to finish the card!

And that’s it!  You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create for the Inspired By Challenge!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend! Jess


Have a great weekend Fawnatics friends! Happy crafting!
