Sunny Studio Guest Designer | Simple Scene Cards

Hello there, I am delighted to be guest designing with Sunny Studio Stamps today. I am using some sets from their latest release and combining a couple with older sets too. So let's get on to the cards:

My first card uses the Critter Campout stamp set, along with the coordinating dies, as well as the Cascading Stars stamp. I started off by creating the background. I took a panel of watercolour paper and stamped the Cascading Stars stamp on to it twice (to cover the width of the panel) using Versamark Ink. I applied clear embossing powder and then heat set.

I took Distress Inks in Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, as well as a little Black Soot and blended these on to the panel with an ink blending tool. I focussed the darkest colour at the top, getting lighter towards the bottom of the panel. I then blended Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs up from the bottom to meet the blues, for the ground. I took the sentiment from the Critter Campout set and stamped this at the bottom of the panel with black ink.
I took the skunk, fox, fire, marshmallows and snail from the set and stamped these on to white cardstock with black ink. I coloured them using Copic Markers adding some yellow glow to the critters from the fire (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section). These were then die cut out using the coordinating dies. I added the background piece flat to a white A2 card base with tape runner and then added the images on top with foam squares.

My next card uses the Background Basics set, along with the older Magical Mermaids set. I really like how the black and white stripes work along with the more colourful images on top, to help ground the scene. I first took the stripes background piece from the Background Basics set and stamped this with black ink on to a white A2 card base and set aside to dry.

I took a panel of watercolour paper and blended over Distress Inks in Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire, keeping the layers fairly light. I then flicked some water on it, let sit for a little while and picked up any excess water and ink with a paper towel. Once the piece was dry, I stamped the sentiment on, using black ink.
I took one of the mermaids, the rock and seaweed from the Magical Mermaids set, and stamped these on to white cardstock with black ink. I coloured them using Copic Markers (colours listed below the supplies section) and die cut them out with the coordinating dies. The background panel was added to the card with foam sheet and DST and then the images added on top with tape runner and thin foam squares.

My last card isn't really a scene card but it does have a cute critter on it! I used the Background Basics set to create a whole panelled background this time and combined it with the Hello die, along with the Oceans of Joy set. I started off by creating the background piece. I stamped the polka dot background repeatedly across a panel of watercolour paper using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set.

I took Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet and blended these over the panel with an ink blending tool. I removed any excess ink from the embossing powder with a dry cloth. This was cut down and added to a white A2 card base at an angle.
I took the Hello die and die cut this three times from black cardstock. They were layered up with spray adhesive and then added to the card base. I took the 'sea you soon' sentiment from the Oceans of Joy stamp set and stamped this with Versamark Ink on to black cardstock. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to strip and added below the hello using thin foam tape. I then stamped the turtle from the set using black ink on to white cardstock and coloured him using Copic Markers (the colours used listed below the supplies section) and die cut him out with the coordinating dies. I added him above the hello with foam tape.

  1. Great cards! I love the turtle card!

  2. Oh Michelle, all three of these cards are absolutely lovely but the camp fire scene has completely stolen my heart! It's fabulous, the layout, colours (not much white space for you!) but the details, all down to the glow on the faces - it's brilliant. Lisa xx

  3. What fabulous cards! I just love the cute little critters, but your rainbow blending in the last card is perfect. Mine would go all brown I know! Of course I don't need any more reason to buy mermaids, do I??? Lol xx
