Under the Weather - WSC 66

Hi all and thanks for stopping by today!  It's time for another MFT Wednesday Stamp Club!  This week, I made a very scrappy card using Umbrella Die-namics and Stamp Set.  It was the first time I've used it and I loved piecing my umbrella together!

I cut the canopy and handle in hot fudge, and then cut the decorative pattern using patterned paper.  It's very easy to piece together; just start at one side and move your way to the other side.

I stamped the sentiment on the banner from First Place Award Ribbon.  The umbrella is perched on circles cut using Circle STAX Sets 1 & 2.

The inside is finished off with 2 more sentiments from the set and the Medium Simply Scallops Border

Here are all the dies I used on this card:

Here is the sketch for you.  I hope you'll play along.  :)

Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog and the MFT forum on SCS (look for the most recent WSC thread).  You'll need to upload your card in the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch. You will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Go get sketchy with MFT!

  1. Awesome card Jody, I so want a flower umbrella like this...FUN!

  2. Excellent card -great idea to add the pattered paper to the umbrella. Great theme for our weather here, lately... we live very close to Seattle. The sunshine is definitely being stingy. Just so you know... you enabled me into buying both Circle Stax & the Fishtail Flags -Ugh!! Stop it!! And, it is an extra fun purchase because our little-girl-black-pug is named Stax. She is on the side bar of my blog if you are curious. :)

  3. Your stitching is always PERFECT! Wish I could sew in circle but I've tried and failed miserably. LOL!
    I need to add that umbrella die to my cart!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!
