Guest Designer Spotlight: Fun Summer Cards with Anita Madden

Hello everyone!  It's Anita here today and I’m so excited to be joining Sunny Studio Stamps once again as a guest designer!

Sunny Studio Stamps Summer Island Getaway Monkey Card by Anita Madden.

I used the adorable Island Getaway stamps for this card.  That monkey in the bikini is just too cute, right?  I colored the images with copics and then cut everything out with the coordinating Island Getaway dies.  For my background, I cut a piece of watercolor paper with a stitched rectangle die and sponged on some distress inks.  I flicked some water drops on the paper, let it sit for several seconds, and then dried the water with a clean towel.  I adhered all the images with foam dots for dimension and then added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.

Sunny Studio Stamps Island Getaway Summer Flip Flops Card by Anita Madden.

Once again I used the Island Getaway stamp set but went with a very clean and easy card!  I stamped the flip flops onto some Neenah cardstock, colored then with copics, and then cut them out with the coordinating Island Getaway dies.  I also used the tiny flowers from the stamp set to decorate the flip flops.  I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the flowers so they sparkle.  I used some bright pattern paper in summer colors and added a few matching enamel dots.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Summer Fresh & Fruity Card by Anita Madden.

I used the sweet Fresh & Fruity stamp set for my next card.  I love all the different fruits in this set and the sentiments are perfect for so many different occasions.  I colored all the fruit with copics and then cut all of them using the coordinating Fresh & Fruity dies.  For my background, I cut a piece of watercolor paper with a stitched rectangle die and applied distress ink with lots of water for a splash of bright color.  I adhered the fruit with foam dots and then added a few sparkly sequins.

For my last card I used the Fresh & Fruity stamps to make another quick and easy card.  I colored all the fruit with my Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I mounted stitched squares onto some green cardstock and then adhered the fruit with foam dots for dimension.  The cute sentiment is one of many that are included in this set.  To finish my card, I simply wrapped some baker’s twine around the top and tied a bow.  

Supplies Used:
