Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs June Release! We have some terrifically fun new images & dies for you this month and I know you’re going to love them!
To make my sunshine card, I stamped the sun/hill image from Hello Sunshine, but I wiped off the ink of the topmost hill. If you look at the set image at the bottom of this post, you’ll see there are 3 little hills. I wanted to stamp the smiley face & by removing this hill it gave me a little more room. I actually used the smiley face from the Sunshine Blessings because it’s a bit smaller & I wanted to add the glitter framed sunglasses for a fun touch. The image was die cut & colored with Copics. The white circle frame was added on top along with a die cut rectangle sponged w/ yellow & orange while still in the frame. I also die cut & sponged the Sunburst Background & the rays from the Matting Circles dies & added them along with greeting I die cut using the Pennant dies. A few sequins were added in the same turquoise color of the glasses. Here’s a look at the inside.

My second card is all about Dad! These images & dies are perfect for Father’s Day. And the tools dies are great for those hard to create masculine cards. And don’t forget, those gals who are handy with a hammer will love these, too. I’m thinking my step mother is actually way more handy with tools than my Dad, lol.
To create this tool apron card, I die cut two aprons using the Apron die, 1 small pocket and a large rectangle for the bottom pocket. I only added adhesive around the sides & bottom so I could put the tools in later. A white gel pen was used to add the faux stitching as well as red & silver pens to color in the words on the greeting. The top of the apron was fastened together with eyelets and more eyelets added on the sides then ribbon tied through them.
The tools were all die cut out of red for the handles & aluminum foil covered card stock for the tool heads. I added a short piece of cloth measuring tape ribbon behind the hammer and on the inside (below) along with the greeting from World’s Greatest.
