Sunny Studio Stamps – New Summer Release

Hi stampers! So glad to join Sunny Studio Stamps as a guest this month and I’m thrilled to play with the newest summer collection! The sets are awesome!

Today, I have two cards for you showcasing the newest Two Scoops and the A Bird’s Life stamp sets. The idea was to create two cards with a similar design but using different style of stamps. Here is what I came up with:

For the first card, I used the A Bird’s Life set. I created a cute scene with the branch, the nest and the birds. I drew a hat with a black marker for the flying bird to make him look more festive. I blended Distress ink over a cloud stencil to create the sky. I added enamel dots to add a touch of color. A birthday card with a lot of colors is always fun! For the second card, I used the same layout elements:

I chose to feature the Two Scoops set. This is a layering stamp set and there are no images to color. The style of both cards is different. This one is more modern. As I did for the first card, I blended the bottom of the card front with Distress ink. This time, I didn’t use a stencil but I splattered some water over the sponged background to add more interest. I also added a colorful strip on the left edge and I stamped the sentiment on a white label (here a speech bubble) that I adhered to the card with foam pads for more dimension. I also used enamel dots (they have a droplet shape here). On both cards, I moved the focal image off-center and trimmed any excess that extended over the sides of the cards. As you can see, with the same elements and a similar layout, you can create completely different creations! I hope you like the idea. By the way, that layering stamp set is AWESOME and look so realistic! I love it! The stickles on top of the soft ice cream adds so much sparkle and interest!
