CCMC #424, Mojo Monday #465 and SFO #157!

I was playing around in my studio yesterday and found 3 challenges to participate in. I combined the color challenge from Create with Connie & Mary:

The sketch challenge from Mojo Monday:

And the theme challenge of "weather" on the SU-Only Challenge. I decided to use the umbrella from the My Hero stamp set for today's card:

My umbrella is actually clear-embossed. I first inked the stamp using VersaMark Ink and inked again on top of the VersaMark with the Delightful Dijon Ink. This allows the ink to remain wet so that I was able to sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool:

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
  • Stamps: My Hero
  • Inks: VersaMark, Delightful Dijon, Soft Suede, Emerald Envy
  • Cardstock: Delightful Dijon, Soft Suede, Emerald Envy, Whisper White
  • DSP: Presents & Pinecones, Festive Birthday
  • Tools: Stampin' Dimensionals, Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies, Tree Builder Punch
  • Accessories: Linen Thread

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
