ICS BLog Hop - Umbrella Punch

Hello and Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share blog hop for August. 

This month our theme is "Punch Me Out".
We have such wonderful punches it was hard to choose!  I settled on the Umbrella Punch.  My card uses the two coordinating stamp sets, Pretty Parasol and Under My Umbrella.

This is my card:

My first step was to make myself a template for the Umbrella Punch.  I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and put the punch all the way into the cardstock and punched.  It looks like this:

This enables you to stamp all 3 images onto your cardstock or DSP and then cut them out in one punch!  That is a trick that you can use for other punches also.

Here is lined up my stamp images inside the pattern and then I put them on my Stampin Block or you can use the Stamparatus. (my choice)

Here is one of my pieces inside the pattern just before I stamped it:

All of the supplies used for my project are listed below.

I used Stampin Write Markers for the colouring of my flowers on Whiper White cardstock but you could also use Stampin' Blends.  The leaves are cut from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper!

Follow along with Cynthia, she will have a great project to share!
