Good day all! Today I am sharing how I took the wafer thin metal die from the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Stamps and Die set and put my own spin on it! The umbrella was simply adorable on it's own, but I took things a couple steps farther and added some detail! I think Mary Poppins would be proud! (wink wink!)
And I was having so much fun with the umbrellas, I wanted to turn things upside down a bit!
Here is how you too can add some added detail to your single layer die cuts!
First I used my Big Shot and the umbrella die to cut out 2 umbrellas. I chose one solid color for the base and a fun floral pattern for detail on the umbrella top.
I hand trimmed a small margin off of the entire umbrella top.
I now have the base and the umbrella top.
I traced the floral umbrella top onto teal polka dot patterned paper and cut out a second umbrella top. I then drew 2 arches with pencil on the teal paper where I want to cut it.
I then trimmed the 2 sides off of the teal polka dot paper. I now have my black umbrella base, the floral umbrella top, and the teal accent piece.
And layered together and adhered with foam adhesive for dimension! I want a real umbrella that is this stinkin' cute!
All of the supplies used were Pink Paislee's Hello Sunshine collection! Be sure to check it out! I am sure you will fall in love with it like I did! Have a great day!
