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 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!
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!
She started by blending a rainbow background using Distress Oxide inks. I just love this rainbow hue!
Then she blended a few slightly darker shades of the same colors through our new Hieroglyphs stencil to create a tone on tone geometric-inspired background! This versatile stencil lets you create an interesting background for any type of card!
She stamped and Copic-colored one of the images from the Inseparable stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating die.

Hi guys! Mimi is back today to share this adorable friendship card with us! She stenciled a subtle background using the Hieroglyphs Penguin Perfect Patterns from our latest Spring/Summer release.
These darling critters are from We Are Right For Each Other also from our latest Spring/Summer release! I love how she hand drawn a portion of a heart on all of the images, to create the idea that all the pieces come together to form a big red heart! So sweet!
I love how she randomly scattered the sentiment “You are the missing piece of my puzzle”, which matches the theme of the card perfectly!
Thank you so much for sharing your brilliant design with us Mimi!
