I created my background by simly layering some cardstock in beach sea and sky colors and then diecut a rectangle. The pineapple is first die-cut and taken apart - then inked with distress ink before assembled again. As a finishing touche I added some brown lines with a watercolor pencil to add shape to the pineapple.

If You were Ice cream ... Sunny Studio

Hi Everyone!

Today I (Karin Åkesdotter of PeppermintPatty's Papercraft) am  here to share a new, very summery card that I've created with Sunny Studio Stamp's summer release! This is an awesome layering stap set called Two Scoops. You can shop them HERE and if you want some amazing inspirations from the awesome Sunny Team you should pop over to their blog HERE


I started out by making a cardbase from White cardstock and matting it with pink striped patterned paper. I then stamped my icream from Three different shades of pink and then the cone from two different light Browns and then fuzzy cut them. It is so fun to see them develop into their 3d look as you stamp each layer!!!The ink and paper I used are from MFT stamps.
I then inked a panel of White cardstoch with peacock feathers distress ink and stamped the sentiment in the top right hand corner. I adhered the icecream cone to the panel with foam adhesive and did the same with the panel to the cardbase.

Guest Designing for Marker Pop

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm excited because I'm guest designing for one of my favorite challenges - The Marker Pop blog Challenge. They are Always so fun and inspiring!
This time their theme is watercolor and those of you who know me know that I LOVE watercolors and those of you who don't can view some of my paintings HERE.




For my cardmaking though I like to try different Products and for today's card I played with my new Distress oxides. I used Tim Holtz new stencil called layered stencil floral  and inked the White cardstock with distress oxide ink from Rangers.
The colors I used are Faded Jeans, Broken China, Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain. I kept the stencil in Place and then sprayed the flowers with water Before I removed the stencil and that created this Beautiful watercolored look. This was really fast and easy and very fun to make!
The hello die I used is from MFT stamps.

Pop over to the Marker Pop Store for more inspiring Products to play with  and to the Marker Pop blog for fantastic inspiration from the talented Design Team!

Home Tweet Home - Sunny Studio

Hi Everyone!

I'm here to share a new card that I've created with Sunny Studio Stamp's adorable new summer release! For today's card I used a super sweet set called A Bird's Life.


I simply diecut a stitched csalloped square and then stamped 4 of the cute bird houses in each of the corners. I stamped the sentiment to the center before I stamped, colored and fuzzy cut a bunch of the adorable birdies from the set. When I had them all ready I placed them out where I thought they fit the best and used tape adhesive to tape them to the card - so fun playing with these cuties (-:

I then made a cardbase with a blue panel matted to it before I adhered the scallopped square to the card with foam adhesive.


You can shop them HERE and if you want some amazing inspirations from the awesome Sunny Team you should pop over to their blog HERE

Lawn Fawnatics Friday Inspiration

Hi Everyone!

It's my turn (Karin's) to share some inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog for the Fawnatics Challenge. There is lots of time to come and play along with our new challenge which is Interactive Cards! The one I've made for today could sort of become interactive if you send along a piece of string and let the reciever know that the tag can be removed and made into a cute book mark.




Instructions:

Diecut a stitched rectangle from watercolor or textured paper (this one is 140 lb wc paper from Daler and Rowney)and dry emboss it for extra texture. Then make a cardbase, slightly larger than the rectangle from the same kind of paper you used for the rectangle .
Stamp and die cut the tag and stamp sentiment to upper center.
Diecut grass and tape to bottom of the tag Before adhereing your critters and flowers
Stamp your critters and flowers, color and die or fuzzy cut them. Use Memento ink if you want to color with copics.
Stamp sentiment at top center of the tag.
Adhere tag to rectangle with foam adhesive and then adhere rectangle to card base with foam adhesive.

Hope I've inspired you to come and play along with our fun challenge. You can win 25 usd to spend in the Lawn Fawn store! YAY!!!
Make sure to pop over to the Lawn Fawn blog for lots of more Amazing inspiration!!!
