Stamptastic Friends – #simplestamping with Pretty Parasol

Welcome back to our Blog Hop with Global Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator friends, for this months ‘hop’, sharing our #simplestamping projects with you.

I have to admit, this is one of my hardest topics, much as I try to make things simpler, it doesn’t come easy to me.

For today’s project, I enjoyed inking up my Pretty Parasol stamp set for the first time.

Keeping in the general theme of ink, stamps & paper, I decided to go monochrome, using each of the NEW 2020-2022 In-Colours in Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, Bumble Bee, Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider.

The small floral image in Pretty Parasol stamp set #152663 was stamped using the Classic Stampin’ Pads in the relevant colours. I stamped all round the outside edges of a 11.8cm x 8cm piece of Whisper White card. Next the sentiment from the same set, was inked and stamped.

A very small piece of In-Colour 6″ x 6″ Designer Series paper #153070 was punched using the Umbrella Builder punch #151293 and the umbrella from a small scrap of coordinating 2020-2022 In-Colour cardstock.

I am really pleased with my finished cards, considering this is not my easiest subject !

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project and have fun hopping round the rest of my Demonstrator friends, seeing the inspiration they have to share with you today.
