Card No. 1: For my first card I paired the Sunshine Backdrops paper from the Hello Sunshine collection with some of the raindrops sprinkle vellum. To add a little detail to my umbrella die-cut I added some hand-stitching and a bubblegum jewel.
Card No. 2: This card focuses on the two different flowers pulled from two of the Thinlits Die Sets using more papers from the Hello Summer Paper Pack and a sheet of Lily White Sprinkles vellum. I love how by putting some below the vellum they take on the look of patterned paper and prevent them from detracting from the sentiment and focal point flower on top. I finished off that flower by borrowing a couple of the leaves from the Tree w/ Flower, Heart & Leaves Bigz Die.
Card No. 3: My next card was my first actually. As soon as I saw the adorable rainbow and cloud dies I couldn't wait to make a fun border with them. For the sun die that comes with the rainbow set, I added some glitter sprinkles to the ends of his rays. Isn't he so irresistible?!
Card No. 4: For this card I let the Sizzlits Eyelet Lace & Scallops Decorative Strip Die & Doodlebug's textured cardstock take center stage. I chose to leave the interior shapes in place so that they could layer on top of each other with less distractions of what was going on underneath each one. Easy peasy and yet still so happy.
Card No. 5: The options with the sweet umbrella die are literally endless. I love how it works for Rainy Day spring cards, baby showers and even bridal showers. For this baby boy card I chose to cut my umbrella from several different prints included in the 6x6 Snips & Snails paper pad and then paper-piece it together. A couple of coordinating birdie icon stickers were the perfect finishing touch.
Card No. 6: My last card uses the umbrella die again for a girly bridal shower card. I paired it with the Tiny Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for my background and some of the scalloped borders from that same decorative strip die I used on my 4th card. For my soft pink prints I used Doodlebug's Sugar & Spice 6x6 Paper Pad. And for those little hearts I cut them using that tree die again and just cut one of them down a bit with my scissors. ;)
Have you fallen hard for with these new dies and embossing folders as much as I have? I hope I've inspired you to head over to the Sizzix website and take a good peek at them. They are completely drool worthy!
