Dawn McVey introduced a darling new set this month for Papertrey called Scattered Showers. There are many combinations of umbrella patterns and one of my favorites is the outline umbrella image so that I can paper piece my umbrella using patterned paper. Here, I've used some Making Memories Garden Party paper from last year's stash for the umbrella and the background paper. The images were layered onto Spellbinder's Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiments and adered them to the image pieces with pop dots. For embellishments, I added some tied Vintage Buttons, some flower epoxy stickers from the MM Garden Party collection, patterned paper snippets and circles and some Papertrey ribbon. I just love to mixy matchy all those fun little elements. And how about the new colors of the Vintage Buttons? The Sweet Blush and Aqua Mist are two of my favorites so far. Card bases are Aqua Mist.
And here's a card that I added to my Papertrey Gallery. I tucked some duckies from Bitty Baby Blessings into the upside down umbrella. The ducks were colored with Copic markers. Image was layered with Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle Dies. Patterned paper is from the Bitty Baby Blessings collection. Ribbon is Lemon Tart Swiss Dot with a white Vintage Button tied on.
