Sunshine Umbrella cu06577
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs June Release! Don’t you just love the sunshine sets & sunburst background die? So cute and so happy! And I think they go wonderfully with the clouds & umbrella dies. And the Father’s Day set & tool dies! Fabulous!!
Sunshine Umbrella 06578
For my card today, I was thinking along the lines of the sun coming out after a rain. To make the background, I white embossed the Belles Vignes on white then sponged on the distress inks. I used a water brush to splatter it with water (for the lighter rain drops) then used a white spray I made by mixing a little white acrylic paint and water in a mini mister & spritzed it on. I think I used about 1 part paint to about 4 parts water. Then it was die cut w/ the largest die of the Flourished Star Pattern dies. The sun was also white embossed on another piece of white, die cut & w/ the circle die still in place, I sponged on the colors. I didn’t like the way the hills turned out, so I did them over, fussy cut them & added them on top. For the yellow layer, I didn’t have enough of the right color of yellow, so I used a couple of yellow Copics around the edges before I attached the turquoise layer on top. The umbrella was die cut 3 times & I shortened the very top one by moving the edge of the die up and cutting just that part. A Scor-Pal was used to add the score lines on the top 2 in order to fold them a bit. I wanted it to look as if the umbrella was being folded up to put away. The clouds  & greeting were added to finish.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Birdbath 06569
On my first card, I’m using this oh so sweet little Bird Bath image. If you’ll notice the window die cut on my next card, you’ll see that I used the window cut outs for this card. I put temporary tape on the backs, pushed them close together to stamp the image then attached them to a second set of cut outs, colored them and attached them to a white panel. The greeting strip was a leftover & I liked the shape so I stamped the words on it & edged it w/ a yellow Copic. The same yellow Copic was used to make the yellow layers. I didn’t have any plain yellow this color so I went around the edges of white panels w/ the Copic. A few more layers of dp and a few tiny white buttons finish it. These are the Copics I used.

Birdhouse WIndow cu 06566 The next card uses the pretty little Birdhouse with Sign image. It was stamped, masked, then the branch & leaf were stamped & everything was colored in with Copics. I stamped an extra sign, colored it then added the Home on top.

Two window were die cut out of heavy white card stock, stacked together for dimension and attached on top of the scene. I added a punched teacup, two punched birds and a little fussy cut bouquet (from the Tandem Bicycle set) added in the teacup. The Wood background was stamped with gray ink onto cream card stock then just a hint of color was added w/ lt yellow & lt blue Copics. These are the Copics I used.
