"I've Got Sunshine..."

I know I'm dating myself...The Temptations and My Girl.  The song starts with, "I've got sunshine...on a cloudy day"...there are probably a few of you who remember, oh, but I digress.   I ordered a set of stamps by My Favorite Things that I thought went PERFECTLY with a brand new Simon Says Stamp Sunshine die I have and made a couple cards...easy, simple but oh so much fun!!!...
 This first one I die cut a rectangle out the panel with my Spellbinders die and used the same die to die cut a yellow rectangle.   I then used the SSS Sunshine die and, matching up the corners with rays, die cut the sun.  I used some thin chipboard and die cut twice more and cut to size using the first die cut as a pattern.  I stamped the sentiment and popped up the white panel on card, then placed the sun and rays back inside the panel.  I didn't layer the circular center, but simply adhered to card.
The second one I used the same yellow paper, Papertrey Ink's Summer Sunrise(fitting for sunshine, don't you think?!) die cut the sun and then a couple more to layer.  Stamped the sentiment on the blue panel and put the sunshine up to the sentiment to cut pieces of the sun's rays to show the sentiment.  I added a tiny magenta colored heart and popped up the whole panel on a card of the same color.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
