Hello! Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the PP blog! I miss you all so much! I’ve been busy getting all of the pre-orders on the Stencils 360°™ shipped out, and I’m so happy that I get to share the joy of crafting with this new tool together with you!
Ashley chose a panel of light blue cardstock cut with the second-largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set. Combining the Stencils 360°TM and the Waterspout circular stencil, she ink blended light blue ink and white pigment ink in alternating sequence to create this wonderful underwater background!
I just love the tone-on-tone effect and how this pattern mimics the bubbles under water surrounding all these cute images!
She stamped and coloured some images from the The More We Get Together stamp set and arranged them onto the card panel, adhering them with liquid glue or foam squares to give it more dimension. She used the sentiment “You have my seal of approval” which coordinates with the adorable seal image.
She die cut 3 stitched slimline panels to create the sky and the grassy hills scene. I love the Distress Oxide ink blending on the background. She used Tumbled Glass for the sky, and Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters for the grassy hills.
I love the smiley trees which are built using the images from My BFF stamp set, the bunnies, flowers, butterflies and the kitty in the trolley are also from the same set.
I love that she added some cute refreshments on the table (those adorable sushis are from Never Give Up stamp set) to make the scene even more interesting! Looks like this bunch is having a great party!
She assembled her card using both liquid glue and foam tape to create a bit of dimension to the card.
I love how she masked off the ice cream images from the Truck, stamped out the coffee cups and donuts on the truck instead, and turned it into a coffee truck!
I love the way she built her scene, with the truck parked on a path inside a garden. The green field was beautifully blended using Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn. The cute little girl was from the Rabbit Café stamp set.
She stamped out the all cute images and colored them in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator. I love all the white gel pen detailing she added on her images.
I love how she stamped out three of the cafés and have different sweets put up as the signs of the café. So cute!
She blended her background beautifully with Distress Oxide Inks. I also like the two different golden colors from the Gansai Tambio Starry Colors that she splattered over the blended background.
Her characters in the foreground were adhered with foam tape to create some dimension.
To finish off, she stamped the sentiment “COFFEE LOVER” with VersaMark and embossed it with gold embossing powder on a strip of cardstock that matches her card base. Head over to Anja’s blog for more details on how she made this gorgeous card!
Thank you Anja for this lovely inspiration! I love this cute scene so much!
