Stamp Review Crew: Weather Together Edition

Weather Together Banner

It’s time for another round of inspiration from The Stamp Review Crew.  If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, we are a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first and third Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set. This week we are featuring the adorable Weather Together stamp set. I am Stop #5 on the hop. You may have just left Stop #4, the always amazing Linda Callahan! After visiting me, you will continue to Stop #6, the ever-so-talented Heidi Baks. Enjoy today’s hop!

Weather Together encouragement card

Today’s offering is a quick and easy card of encouragement.  I’m sure we all know someone who is going through a rough time in their life … someone who could use a little “day brightener”. This clean and simple card fills the bill!

The Umbrella was stamped onto a delightful Pool Party Polka Dot print, while the Handle was stamped onto Pool Party card stock. Umbrella Weather Framelit Dies make it a snap to cut these pieces out.  Clear Wink of Stella and Rhinestones add sparkle, while an Oval Stitched Framelit provides the backdrop for this focal point.

Close up of Weather Together umbrellaI love the sentiments which come with this set.  Since I had a specific recipient in mind for this card, I selected “sometimes we all need shelter from the storm”.  It was inked in Archival Basic Black, and stamped into the corner before embossing the panel with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Weather Together cardI hope you enjoyed today’s card made with this adorable set.  Won’t you let me know in your  comment today?  Of course, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away.  Now hop along to Stop #6, Heidi Baks!  I guarantee you will not be disappointed with what she has in store for you!  If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of all the hoppers at The Stamp Review Crew.  Until next time…

P.S.  Here is a picture of the newest member of our family, Kendall. Kendall will be sharing time between our home in Iowa and her co-owner’s home in Canada.  Don’t let this picture fool you.  She is a little spitfire for sure!

    You have another keeper of a card. But, can you turn off the rain here? I now have a leak in our roof. I need a huge umbrella over the one spot where it is leaking. It could even be this color to go with the house! We are in the process of getting estimates for the roof talk about sticker shock. Kendall looks like a real sweetie. So, how did she come about and how does this work since Iowa is more than a hop, skip and jump from SE Iowa!
