I Spy YNS Saturday – Umbrellas

This week we spied colorful umbrellas on a card created by Trina Pham on Instagram.

Trina used the Cute Kite and Umbrella die set, coloring the base and then layering over the umbrella outline in white.  Set against the puffy clouds, the umbrellas create a scene that is fresh and full of spring.


We are always on the lookout for YNS creations.   Tag your photos with #yournextstamp.
