Today I’m guesting over at the Sunny Studio Stamps blog but posting here as well. I had the opportunity to work with some of their products from the recent Fall 2019 Release and excited to share with you what I created with them! This release packed full of various fun themes and I actually picked out some non-fall themed sets to work with.
Let’s start with the mini stamp set called Cruising Critters. These car is packed full with the cutest critters! I stamped the image in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers. I also borrowed some extra images from Love Monkey to add some balloons and a floral bouquet to the mix. The image was then fussy cut out, but coordinating dies for both Cruising Critters and Love Monkey are available.
To create the city scene, I used the new Cityscape Border Die. I die cut the cityscape twice out of a blue card stock. On one of the die cuts, I gently blended white pigment ink from the top down. For the other die cut, I gently blended Faded Jeans distress oxide from the bottom up. This gave me the variations in color to get more contrast in layering them.
My background was ink blended with Broken China and Antique Linen for the top half and Ground Espresso for the bottom half. The sentiment was heat embossed in white near the top center.
Now let’s move up to the skies! For my next card I used the Plane Awesome stamps. I love how I have so many choices to on a pilot for the plane. I stamped the plane twice and picked out the dog and bear as my pilots. I also stamped two banners with my sentiment across them. These images were color with copic markers and then die cut with their coordinating dies.
I created a cloudy background with a stencil and Broken China distress oxide inks. If you don’t have a cloud stencil, you can also easily create your own with the Fluffy Clouds Border Dies and a piece of acetate (or paper if you plan to just throw it away afterwards).
For extra dimension, I also die cut some stitched clouds using the Fluffy Clouds Die. I gently blended the bottom of each with Broken China distress oxide inks. The clouds and images were then added last with foam tape to complete the card. Thanks for joining me today!
