Hello there! I'm so excited to welcome Debbie Olson to the blog today. I have admired her mad coloring skills and great eye for design for years. I was over the moon excited to meet her for the first time earlier this year and even more thrilled when she agreed to be our special guest!
Good morning! Debbie Olson here, privileged to be a guest of Sunny Studio today! When Mendi shared her new release, I knew that I’d love playing with it; so today I have cards using the Sweet Shoppe and Sock Hop stamp sets to share.
First up is Sweet Shoppe—so many fun images to color in this set! I couldn’t decide upon just one, so I chose to use three of them, with a clean and simple layout. I colored my images with Copic markers and die-cut them, airbrushed a splash of YR31 to warm up the white background behind the sweet treats, stamped my sentiment, and them used foam tape to pop up the images.
I used the strawberry again on the inside of my card, along with a continuation of the sentiment.
Shown above are the Copic markers that I used to color the Sweet Shoppe images.
Next is the Sunny Studio Sock Hop stamp set; this set has a TON of possibilities! I chose Cool Cat for my first card, pairing him up with some Lily Bee Design Pinwheel papers. I stamped the jukebox lightly as a backdrop for Cool Cat, and die-cut both Cool Cat and his guitar to pop up with foam tape in the foreground
Here are the Copics that I used to color Cool Cat.
Finally, I created a “guy card” for someone who loves his Chevys. I had already colored my Sock Hop image before I looked for patterned paper, which turned out not to be such a good idea when I had not a single blue in my stash that went with the blues I had used on my classic car! After several “didn’t quite work” backgrounds, I finally airbrushed a background for my car, using many of the same colors that I had used to color the car. Because I didn’t want the background to compete with the car image, I used a piece of vellum on top of my airbrushed background, gluing it under the car, and also attaching it with the same brads that attached my sentiment panel.
Shown above are the markers that I used to color the classic car. (If you are looking for color and shading ideas on this car, google ’57 Chevy images—you’ll find an abundance of them!)
I hope that these ideas are helpful with your Sunny Studio Sweet Shoppe and Sock Hop stamp sets. A huge thanks to Mendi for inviting me to Sunny Studio today!
