Happy Monday and welcome to the May My Monthly Hero Blog Hop! Today I'm sharing stenciled sun backgrounds cards featuring lots of amazing new dies from the May Add Ons. The stand alone dies this month are absolutely incredible. Y'all know how much I love die cutting!

Watch the creation of these two stenciled sun backgrounds cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
Both cards feature the Sun Background Stencil and Hero Hues Reactive Inks. Pixie Spray was applied to the back of the stencil to hold it in place while inking. Once the stencils were removed, the blending brushes were used to soften the rays and add additional color to the white areas of the stenciled design. Each background was spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer and allowed to air dry.
The Cloudy Sky Scene Dies were used to die cut vellum and smooth white cardstock and layered along the bottom edge of one of the backgrounds. A greeting from the Tulip Field Color Layering Scape Stamp Set was stamped over the stenciled sun background with Embossing & Watermark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The Airplane Fancy Die was die cut with smooth white cardstock and colored in with the following Copic Markers: B23, B24, B26, BG45, BG49, B0000, B01, R32, R35, C5, C8.
The airplane was adhered to the scene with foam adhesive. Glossy accents was applied to the window, propeller, and wheel.
The US Mailbox Fancy Die was die cut from smooth white cardstock and colored in with the following Copic Markers:
- Mailbox: B23, B24, B26, C5, C8
- Red Letter: R32, R35, R37, C5, BG49
- Pink Letter: RV63, RV55
- Yellow Letter: Y11, Y08
- Aqua Letter: BG11, BG23
- Teal Letter: BG45, BG49
A greeting from the All My Heart Peek-A-Boo Parts Stamp Set was stamped on the mailbox with the Embossing & Watermark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The mailbox was adhered to the background with foam adhesive.
