Tempting Template

Good Morning Paper Crafters.  Today I am sharing a card designed using one of the Stamper's Sampler Tempting Templates.  In each issue, Stamper's Sampler challenges stampers to create a project using a template.  You can find a library of their templates HERE.  This particular issue was a pinwheel pattern.  I have mailed it in and I'm hoping to see it in a future issue.
You can check out my project using the umbrella template that was published in the August issue HERE.
I hope you find a template you like and have fun with it.  Let me know what you come up with!

Tempting Template - Umbrella


Good Morning Papercrafters.  Today I have a template card to share with you.  I LOVE Stampers Sampler and one of the things they publish in each  issue is a template or pattern.  They challenge their readers to create and submit a project using it.  The Feb/March issue had an umbrella pattern.  The April / May issue (on news stands now), has a mason jar pattern.  I can't wait to play with that one.  If you aren't able to purchase the magazine, then you can check out their "Tempting Templates" HERE.  Looks like they don't keep them up do date immediately.  The last ones were from August 2010.  If you really like the umbrella pattern, then check out what I found when I googled under images "umbrella coloring book" HERE.

I created the bird house myself.  I used my Spellbinders Classic Oval die set and my Grand Calibur to cut the opening.  The scallop along the roof line is hand cut.  The umbrella is paper-pieced and raffia was added to create a bird's nest.  And of course I had to add bird images by one my favorite stamp company, Layers of Color. 
Sentiment - Sent With Love
DP - Pink Paislee 6x6 paperpad - 365 Degrees
(sorry, this one is retired)

If you decide to design your own umbrella card, I would love to check it out!  Just leave me a link.
Thanks for stopping by and have a very blessed week!

Did you know you can get the Grand Calibur at Hobby Lobby?  Hmmm ... wondering if that qualifies with the 40% off coupon.  Anybody know??
