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!
She created the background by die cutting an A2 sized panel with the large die fromDots 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!
I just love the overall pastel color palette on her card. This sweet truck is surrounded by super adorable penguins, ready to party! She even had the desserts displayed at the ice-cream truck window!
The white heat embossed “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” was from The Sweetest Truck stamp set. I really like them on pink strips of paper for a nice contrast! I love how the little splash of paint mimics confetti and their colors blend in cohesively with all the images!
Jo joins us today with a gorgeous card with lots of awesome details! You can watch her step-by-step video over on our YouTube Channel!
Jo blended a super dreamy sky with her own cloudy stencil with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. She created a park scene where the ice-cream truck was parked against the sidewalk and a beautiful piece of lawn. All of her images from The Sweetest Truck stamp set were colored using Copic Markers and die cut using their coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. I love her choices of sharp and vibrant colors!
She used may of the dessert images from the set and I just love how each of the character is holding on to their favourite treats! She also used Copics to sketch out the sidewalk and the grassy details which looks fantastic!
She finished off her card with one of the sentiments from the set, “wishing you truck loads of…” while stamping out “ICE CREAM, SWEETS, and DONUTS” together with a bunch of music notes as if music was coming from the truck!
Thank you so much or sharing this beautiful card with us today, Jo! It’s totally awesome and it just reminds me that Spring is here!
