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!

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!

Adorable Mini Slimline and Tags with Guest Designer Michelle!

Happy Wednesday crafty friends! We are super excited as Michelle Short will be Guest Designing for us in the coming few weeks!

For today, Michelle made an adorable mini slimline and tags featuring the new Inseparable stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I personally love clean and simple design and I love what she’s created here!

For her mini slimline, she die cut a heart to set the scene and ink blended it with Distress Inks. The family of cuddly bears are from the Inseparable stamp set.

The sentiment ‘Special Delivery’ was white heat embossed on black cardstock and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. She simply finished it off with some clear gems.

For her tag, she Copic coloured the images and added Crystal Glaze to the purple hearts on the mini envelopes. The sentiment ‘sending warm hugs’, from Unity and Friendship Quotes, is also white heat embossed on black cardstock.

If you look closely, I really like how the coordinating die-cut for this sentiment cuts close to the texts. She then finished off the tag with some iridescent bubbles and twine.

I just love the nice clean looks of these projects!

Thank you Michelle for your beautiful inspirations!

An Adorable Shadow Box Card by Mimi!

Hello everyone! Mimi is back today with a super adorable shadow box inspiration!

She custom made her own shadow box measuring about 5 3/4 long to set the scene. She also made a couple of one inch wide tabs to fit into her box.

She then adhered her beautifully colored critters from the Inseparable stamp set on the different tabs to create the three dimensional look!

She added a bunch of accessory images such as the muffin, coffees from Rabbit Cafe. I also love the scattered flowers and how she used the dance floor image from Fun Night Out as the picnic blanket – so clever!

The sentiment on the front of the box is from Unity and Friendship Quotes. The hanging banner flags on the tree (also from Inseparable) gives her card the perfect finishing touch!

Thank you Mimi for your charming shadow box card! It is super sweet!

A Magical Creation with Guest Designer Ilda!

Hello friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Let’s hop right in to our inspiration for today. We’re super excited to have Ilda Dias guest designing for us!

Her card features the latest Fancy Gift Bow Stencils 360°. She ink blended three different pastel colors on one of the 8” stencil from this set and rotated it at 30deg intervals (jumping from circle to circle) to create this dreamy background! So beautiful!

She then used the 6” stencil and apply iridescent glitter gel over it to create this icy frozen fractal look!

She added a white heat embossed sentiment from So Blessed stamp set that was die cut with its coordinating dies. She also finished her card with some matching iridescent gems!

This card certainly reminds me of the movie Frozen, Christmas and Snowflakes!

Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiration Ilda!

Thanks for stopping by everyone, have a great rest of the week!
