Joy Of Sets June Blog Hop: Splish Splash

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I am delighted to be taking part in  the Joy Of Sets blog hop again. I love taking part in blog hops because they give me so many ideas not just from the theme set but also from the other participants. Always inspiring. The theme this month is Splish Splash. I have used the Stampin' Up! stamp set Under My Umbrella and matching punch to create this card which has a great sentiment to send to a friend or family member you are missing at this time. It is especially appropriate with the recent turn in the weather here in the UK!

I found inspiration from the catalogue and CASE'd the layout of the elements of the topper but changed the layering of the and added my own twist with the dies cuts and hand stamping the umbrella itself.
