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!

Anja’s Sun-Kissed Beach Scene Creation

Hi crafty friends! Anja is back today sharing a just because card full of summer vibe! Her card features The Sweetest Truck stamp set & its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts; and the Summer Sunshine stamp set & its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

She created the background by die cutting an A2 sized panel with the large die from Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlay and ink blending it using Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink for the beach, and Mermaid Lagoon to portray the ocean.

She used the little girl server image and the truck from The Sweetest Truck stamp set, combining them with the the girl in swimsuit along with several other cute images from the Summer Sunshine stamp set.

I love how she splattered water onto the ink blended card while adding dabs of white acrylic paint with a bristle brush. This technique really mimics the waves hitting the shoreline!

The extra beverage and the watermelon slices on top of the truck are just too cute! White gel pen details and glossy accents were added for some final touches!

Thank you so much Anja for this summery inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

A Delightful Summer Scene Card with Davina!

Hey everyone! Davina is back to share with us a super delightful summer scene card!

Davina combined cool images from the Summer Sunshine stamp set and The More We Get Together stamp set to create this unique and incredible scene!

She stamped a bunch of images from both sets and colored them up using bright summery colors. I love how the cool kitty is suntanning on the beach and at the same time, having all the cute creatures swimming in the ocean!

She used the largest die from the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlays on her back panel for the wonderful boarder detail. She cut the stitched layers from several panels of Bristol smooth cardstock, and inked them up using Distress Oxide Inks.

I just love the splash of water and the watery inks on the cards for the added texture.

She used the sentiment, “Seas the Day” from the Summer Sunshine stamp set on the sand layer then adhered all of the pieces together.  

Thank you so much Davina for this lovely scene. It is so vibrant and lively!  I really love how she composed her card into a split level scene where you can see both the beach and the underwater!

Thank for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Today’s focus is going to be on the new The Sweetest Truck stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

I’ve been longing for a stamp full of happy vibe and that is why we came up with this set. This ice cream truck themed stamp set is just so wonderful to play with!

Who doesn’t love a truck load of sweet goodies?  You’ll have endless fun playing with this set with all the cute characters and timeless desserts! Great for birthday cards, friendship cards, and just because cards.

Our Creative Team had made some of the cutest cards ever, now let’s check them out!

Ashley made a super colorful just because card with this set. Her background was blended with Distress Oxide Inks, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron. I love the silver glittery clouds she added. She chose the cute bear to be selling ice cream at of the window! I love the bunch of musical notes she added which made her card so much more alive! Click HERE to check out her video tutorial on our YouTube Channel and give it a like!

Next we have Anja’s creation. This card is so fantastic. I love the blended sky, which went so well with the color of the truck. Looks like the children and the cub are enjoying their time in the garden! I also love that she combined the sentiment “wishing you truck loads of “, altogether with “Fun”, Happiness”, and Ice cream”!

Vera made a happy birthday card in a portrait orientation. She had the cute ice cream truck as her background. This time she put both the little girl and the bear at the windows, and the little couple at the front enjoying their ice cream and beverage on a grassy field. The tone of this card just gives a super relaxing vibe!

Next we have Davina’s project. Her card is just perfect for Spring! I love the color palette that she chose. The colors on the images, cardstock, and patterned paper all comes together seamlessly. She also used some the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay boarder dies to create layering for her card. Love the splatter of paint and the gel pen detailing as her finishing touches.

I’m so excited to have Laura Dovalo guest designing for us this week. Laura made a gorgeous happy birthday card! She made her own patterned paper by stamping out multiple times some of the accessory images from this set, including the 3-tier ice cream cone and the popsicles. I just love how this background is full of desserts that I love! She did some clever masking on the characters to make them look like they are holding the desserts in their hands, love it!

Finally, we have my card! I thought it would be fun to have the cub waving from behind the truck. By combining the stamp image with the struts supports and the Irresistible Ice-cream Treat embellishment, I attempted to mimic a giant inflatable ice cream advertising display on top of the truck! I thought it turned out pretty cool!

A BIG Thank-You to our wonderful and talented Creative Team! Head over to their blogs for more details on these cards.

Slimline Summer Scene Card With Anja!

Hi Everyone! Anja is back to day to share a fun slimline summer scene card with us!

She made this gorgeous card using the Summer Sunshine stamp set & coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts, together with the Let’s Catch Up stamp set & coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

All of her images were colored using Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Copics. Love the white gel pen dotted highlights.

I love how she composed her slimline scene in different layers from top to bottom, with the sky, beach, ocean and seabed.

The ink blending on this card is done beautifully. She chose Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks for the ocean; Antique Linen for the beach and and Worn Lipstick for the sky.

I love how she modify the mermaid image from the Let’s Catch Up stamp set (by cutting out the yoga mat) and made it look like a swimming mermaid! How cute!

To finish off, she stamped out the sentiment “SUN-KISSED” with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white WOW embossing powder.

Thank you Anja for your lovely creation! This scene is incredible!

Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
