Slimline Picnic Scene with Anja!

Hi guys! Wish you all had a very Happy Canada Day yesterday. Today we have Anja sharing another slimline card with us!

This slimline is telling a story and I love it! Anja combined images from The Sweetest Truck, Never Give Up, My BFF, Summer Sunshine and the Bee Happy stamp sets!

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.

The other characters are a mixture of images from Summer Sunshine, Sweetest Truck and the Bee Happy stamp sets. All of the images were colored using Copics and aren’t they lovely!!

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.

Thank you Anja! This scene is so full of fun!

A Coffee Themed Friendship Card with Anja!

Hi guys! Anja is back today sharing a super adorable coffee themed friendship card!

Anja combined images from The Sweetest Truck, Rabbit Café, and There’s No One Like You stamp sets to create this gorgeous scene!

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 also added some boarder details to her card by using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays! She then used alphabet die cuts from Lawn Fawn to spell out COFFEE onto her card.

I love how she added even more details on these giant letters by stamping out the coffee beans image from There’s No One Like You stamp set! Such a clever idea!

Thanks Anja for your wonderful scene!

Fun Street Café Scene with Anja!

Hi Everyone! It’s the second day of Lunar new year and I want to show you a beautiful card that Anja made for us!

Anja made this slimline card using the Rabbit Café stamp set and its coordinating  Penguin Perfect Cuts.

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!
