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!

Awesome Sushi Food Truck by Davina!

Hi guys! I’m so excited to show you Davina’s awesome creation for today! She made a cute sushi food truck scene using several products from our recent release!

I love how she did some magical masking on the ice cream truck from The Sweetest Truck stamp set. Then she stamped sushis on the truck instead. How cool is that!

I love the big kimbap advertising sitting on top of the truck! Her images were colored with Copics and die cut using the coordinating cuts.

I really like the bright red truck backed by the night sky and grassy setting. It is so much fun!

She used the Dots Meet Dashes Rectangle Overlays on the card panels for the boarder details. I love that she inked up the edges of her colored cardstock for the added texture and depth. She finished her card with some big letter die cuts and a couple more cute images as decoration. Check out more detail on this card over on Davina’s blog!

Thank you Davina for this incredible creation! Looking at this makes me hungry!

Jo’s Awesome Ice Cream Truck Scene!

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!

A Super Sweet Happy Birthday Card by Anja!

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday! Let’s keep up social distancing and continue to connect virtually with friends and family!

Today Anja’s back to share a super sweet Happy Birthday card with us.

Anja die cut some white cardstock with the largest die from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay stand alone die to give some nice looking boarder details. She stamped out images were from The Sweetest Truck stamp set, Copic colored them and cut them out using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love that she had both the cute bear server and the little girl looking out the window of the truck.

She blended her background using Mustard See, Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks. These colors go cohesively with her colored images. I love how she masked of a portion on the panel while blending to leave a thick white boarder for some bold contrast.

She then white heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment with on black cardstock.

For some final touches, she stamped the tiny starts and hearts in matching inks to create a tone-on-tone effect. She also added some glossy accents over the windows of the truck for some shimmer and shine!

Thank you Anja for sharing this sweet creation! A clean and simple card is always the best!

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!
