The Spot Challenge #155 - Spring has Sprung with Stampin' Up! Pretty Parasol and Hydrangea Dies

 Hi There and Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a great start.  This week's challenge over at The Spot this week is a theme challenge all about Spring!

When I think of spring, I think of rain, sunshine and flowers and this week's card is all about these things!  I loved how it came together!

I started out with a Misty Moonlight A2 cardbase that measured 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4".  I mounted a 3-3/4" x 5" panel on the gorgeous Hydrangea Hill DSP onto a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" panel of Basic White Cardstock.  Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon around the panel and tied it in a knot on the front left side.  I used the Pretty Parasol Stamp set for my umbrellas and the Hydrangea Dies for the flowers on my focal panel.  I started ink blending just a little bit of Misty Moonlight onto a panel of Basic White cardstock that was cut with one of the Stitched So Sweetly Scalloped Rectangle Dies.  I added a little bit of Daffodil Delight to the upper right hand corner and then spritzed the panel with just a bit of water and used a paper towel to absorb the spritz of water.  I used a Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write Marker to spritz some ink onto the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the umbrella handles directly onto the panel with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The umbrella tops were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on scraps of Basic White Cardstock and then colored with Stampin' Blends (Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo and Magenta Madness).  I cut the Hydrangeas out of scraps of Highland Heather and Blushing Bride.  After die cutting hte flowers, I added a little dot center with Stampin' Blends.  I adhered the tops to the umbrellas with Stampin' Dimensionals. Some flowers were added with Multipurpose Adhesive and others were added with Dimensionals.   The sentiment was heat embossed with White Embossing Powder onto Highland Heather Cardstock and then fussy cut.... ugh!  I really hate fussy cutting sentiments but this one was pretty simple to fussy cut and small enough that it could be adhered with multi-purpose adhesive on the bottom of the scalloped rectangle.  I attached the completed focal panel onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  It really turned out super pretty.  I honestly think the picture didn't do it justice!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
