adorable cute street scene

An Interactive Cinematic Shadow Box – A Busy Street Scene!

Hi! I hope all of you are having a great week! Today I am sharing one of the biggest shadow scene I’ve ever made! This card is themed around a busy street with lots of fun elements!

I used the Cinematic Shadow Box stand alone die cut to create the backbone of my card. You can have up to 4 tabs in this shadow box which gives great dimension and lots of room to fit ample stamped images!

I combined images from a bunch of different stamp sets including The Sweetest Truck, Rabbit Cafe, Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2), Fun Adventure, and Sweet Ride.

I thought why not take it to the next level and combine this shadow box with an interactive element! I used the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab – Stand-Alone Die to make the Ice Cream truck move down this busy street!

Check out this card in action below!

I used the Sidewalk Scene Builder – Stand-Alone Die to die cut the two sidewalks on The Sandstone Series – Smokey Eyes – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock and then added splashes of paints. For the background wall, I blended Distress Oxide Inks on the Mega Blocks stencil and die cut it using the large dotted border die from the Cinematic Shadow Box.

I just love making these mini scenes on this shadow box! Acetate played a big part in the assembly of this card.

I used acetate for a couple of the tabs in the box so that the road background could show through. I added acetate to mimic the Ice Cream Truck’s windows. I also used it for placing the music notes that are coming from the ice-cream truck!

To keep everything in perspective, I laid out the images so that larger characters go near the front and smaller ones go at the back.

I stamped out a sentiment from The Sweetest Truck on the front tab of the box which I had trimmed down to show more of the sidewalk at the bottom.

I hope you enjoyed this inspiration and thank you so much for stopping by!

A Colorful Mini Slimline Card With Guest Designer Michelle!

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by! Our Guest Designer Michelle Short is sharing a delightful rainbow hue mini slimline card over at her blog today!

Her card features the We Are Right For Each Other stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

She stamped out some adorable images from this set and Copic Colored them before die cutting them out with the coordinating dies.

She also picked out some words to form this lovely sentiment. I love how these words stamp to fit perfectly onto the puzzle pieces!

For the background, She blended Distress Inks in rainbow hues on to a panel of white cardstock and spritzed water on top for the extra texture.

Once dried, it was adhered to the mini slimline card base with foam tape and then the images added on top with more foam tape.

I love the wide contrasting black border which I think really brings out the rainbow colors!

Thank you so much Michelle, your card is super adorable! We are thrilled to have you Guest Design for us for the past few weeks!

Summery Beachy Slimline Card

Delightful Beachy Slimline Scene by Mimi!

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Mimi is back to share her adorable slimline card!

I just love everything that’s happening in this sweet scene!

All the cute bears are from the Miniature Teddy Bear stamp set. I love how she combined a bunch of different stamp sets and dies to complete her scene!

I love the white beach shoreline she painted and the ink splatters to mimic the sandy beach.

The truck and sweets are from The Sweetest Truck. I love how she also a added a partial image (the leaves) from the floral design in So Blessed stamp set. The table and chairs setting are from Fun Night Out while the beach umbrella is from Rabbit Café.

I also love the little beach ball and sand castle she made from images taken from Penguin Agenda.

Thank you so much Mimi for sharing this beautiful scene! It’s so adorable!

Beautiful Floral Thank You Card by Karen

Hi friends! Karen is back to share another gorgeous creation with us!

Her card features the So Blessed stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts from our Spring/Summer Release.

I love the placement of the flower bouquets in opposite corners which compliments the scripty sentiment in the center perfectly!

I also love the combination of the white heat embossed images and water colors which brings a very elegant feel!

All of the images and sentiments were die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts in which you can find a large die that cuts out all of the sentiments strips at once – is a super time saver! The rounded corners on the sentiment strip also gives it a unique finishing touch.

Thank you so much Karen for your charming inspiration!
