For today's post I combined several tropical and summer themed stamp sets and made a vacation scene in a pop up card! This one will have you reaching for a Mai Tai! Please visit me on my blog sometime! You can find me at A Blog Called Wanda or find me on Instagram. Let's get tropical!

This card was so much fun to make! I started by stamping and die cutting out a lot of pieces and parts! Palm trees, birds, flamingos, swimming cuties, pineapples, and leaves. Oh My! I combined several sets - Fabulous Flamingos, Coastal Cuties, and Sending Sunshine - for all of my images.

Then I had fun coloring everything with Copic Markers. I then added accents with a white gel pen ... and then some shimmering glitter Diamond Stickles! Once I had all my images colored and ready, I decided to create a pop up card scene that is like a vacation when you open it!

I used the awesome Catch A Wave dies set to die cut waves from teal cardstock. I added white gel pen accents to the waves too. I also die cut some puffy clouds for the back of the scene.

I used the fabulous Summer Splash paper pad to add colorful paper accents to the project. (Secret: I have about 20 Sunny Studio paper packs in my studio!! LOVE.) I assembled everything together placing all the images inside the pop up. I used the extra images to decorate the sides of the pop up.

The Sunny Studio stamp sets are all perfectly sized and scaled to mix and match, and that makes it so much fun to create with all your stamp sets. I loved combining everything for this card! I have so many more ideas for this release. Another winner for sure!!

Sweater Vest Dies Cards with Rachel and Lexa

Hello! It's Rachel here and I am so excited to share with you a couple of different ways to use the Sweater Vest Dies. Not only is this die perfect for Christmas time, but it works well with Father's Day and masculine birthdays as well!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Sweater Vest Dies Loopy Letters Dies Father's Day Masculine Cards by Rachel Alvarado and Lexa Levana

I went with two separate designs today that share a lot of similarities but look extremely different. The first one is a military tactical vest. I have two brothers that have served in the United States Marine Corps, and I had them in mind when creating this. I used some 12"x12" camouflage paper from Hobby Lobby and then used the dies to create my base. I added some pockets by simply using both a basic rectangle and square die and then rounding the bottom edges with a corner punch.

I added some "material" to the top of each pocket by die cutting some more camo with the long ribbed die that comes with this set. I also created some dog tags by die cutting some mirror paper with the teeny tiny, half circle looking die that comes with the Sliding Window Die. I cut them from mirror card stock and then attached them to some beaded string and then glued them to my card.

My second card is a fishing vest. Both my husband and my dad love to fish and this style card would be perfect for either one of them. I used the Loopy Letters Dies to create the word "dad" but you can customize it however you like.

I used the same technique as above to create all of my pockets except for the very tiny ones. For those, I used a very small square die and then used that same small half circle die from the Sliding Window Die Set to cut the bottom of each square to resemble a pocket. For the larger pockets, I once again used the corner punch. I actually used the v-neck die and cut it to size to add some top trim to the pockets. For some added interest, I also adhered some brown cord behind each pocket to resemble zippers and compartments like most fishing vests have.

I hope you enjoyed these cards today! Thanks so much for dropping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a dad's card using Sweater Vest Dies. But instead of using it as a vest shaped card, I'm trying to stretch out my creativity to create a square one. It's a simple and clean card which is a perfect style for the man of your life.

I use this color combination, dark grey, blue and purple. I cut a 4.25"x4.25" light blue cardstock and a strip of 2.5"x4.25" purple cardstock. I use the dies to create diagonal holes along the purple stripe and some dark grey diamonds and the bow tie. I adhere the diamonds with foam tapes to create dimension.

The alphabets are cut using Loopy Letter Dies and they look so gorgeous! This is actually my first time using this dies and I'm pretty sure that I will use it more often from now on. I use the blue stripes patterned paper from Striped Silly 6x6 Paper Pad

Here's the closer look of my card. It's easy and simple, I hope you get inspired. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have an amazing day!

Frilly Frames Dies Cards with Anja and Vanessa

Hi everyone, Anja here and today I'm highlighting the new Frilly Frames Chevron Dies. I combined this versatile 2-piece die set with the Fabulous Flamingos Stamps.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Frilly Frames Fabulous Flamingos Fresh & Fruity Tropical Paradise Happy Word Die Summer Themed Cards by Anja Bytyqi and Vanessa Menhorn

It's always fun to try new color combos, so I picked some bright and fresh colors for my summer birthday card. I started off with an A2 card base made from white cardstock. I used both dies together and cut the pinked frame with the chevron pattern from blush pink cardstock. Then I used the chevron die and cut it from three other cardstock colors. I repeatedly inlaid the chevrons into the blush pink die-cut.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating Fabulous Flamingos Dies to cut them out. The sentiment is included in the Party Pups Stamps set and I stamped it in VersaMark Ink on a thin black cardstock strip and white heat embossed it. To finish off my card, I adhered three matching enamel dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a lovely day!

Hello everybody! Vanessa here today with a colorful summer card using the Frilly Frames Stripes DiesIt took me a while to assemble this card, because a lot of die-cutting was involved, but I love the result!

I first die-cut the frame from Kraft cardstock. Then I die-cut it from all the colors I had in my cardstock scrap stash. I assembled the frame and adhered it to the card base. Now I stamped the fruit images from Fresh & Fruity and Tropical Paradise onto white cardstock, colored them with Copics, fussy-cut the elements and adhered them to the card.

Next, I die-cut the Happy Word Die from white cardstock and fun foam and adhered it. I stamped and heat-embossed the "summer" from Fabulous Flamingos onto a strip of black cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it with foam tape.

I hope you like my idea to use up those cardstock scraps! I have plenty of stripes left to create more colorful cards :) Thanks for stopping by!

Hawaiian Hibiscus Cards with Mona and Franci

Hi crafty friends! It's Mona here, today I am showing you a bright floral card featuring the Hawaiian Hibiscus stamp set. I love this stamp set so much and I wanted to create a vintage card with it.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Hawaiian Hibiscus Sunshine Word Die Frilly Frames Dies Hello Cards by Mona Toth and Franci Vignoli

This time I started the card making with stamp layering. For the stamping I used Hybrid Inks from Scrapbook.com and green colored mini ink cubes from Altenew. For the leaves I used the Bamboo,  Parrot and Shadow Creek colors. For the Flowers I used many colors and I mixed and matched them from the lightest to darkest. (For the flowers I used the following colors: Yellow 1, 3; Violet 2, 3, 4; Rise 2,3,4; Pink 2; Blue 1,4.) When the layering was done I Die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

The next step was the background. I made a die-cut with the Frilly Frames Stripes Dies from a light teal cardstock and adhered to the card base. When it was done, I die-cut the Sunshine sentiment with the Sunshine Word Die and I adhered it to the card base.

In the end I stamped the "Aloha" sentiment to my card and embellished the card with tiny Hearts confetti and it was done. Thank you very much for reading through my post, I hope that you have enjoyed it and I have inspired you! If you like my creations let's be friends on Instagram. :)

Hi there! Franci here with you today, showcasing the Hawaiian Hibiscus set.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Hawaiian Hibiscus Sunshine Word Die Frilly Frames Dies Hello Cards by Mona Toth and Franci Vignoli

This set is amazing!! I have a love/hate relationship with layering sets cause they can be tricky to align and solid images are not super easy for me to stamp, but this set is no trouble and all the joy!! These flowers are the easiest images to align ever and every layer is amazing, the final effect is so beautiful! So if you are a little bit scared, I say ... get this set and you'll love it!

Back to my project. First of all I created my white card base as usual, then I created my background by Sponging Distress inks on to a stripes stencil. You can easily masked the front of the card with some thin strips of masking paper and ink on top to achieve the same pattern :)

I let it dry and then added some little spatters of dark blue and rose gold watercolors with a fine tip brush. I stamped my Hibiscus flowers and the leaves using a combo of Lawn Fawn inks and Memento Drops inks. I die cut all the images with their coordinated dies and glued them down with foam adhesive.

Finally I added some sparkle clear sequins and stamped my sentiment. I'm so happy with this clean and simple card, it makes me dream about beautiful beaches and the lovely time of summer vacations!

Hope you like it too and thank you so much for stopping by today!
