Guest Designer Spotlight: Cards with Debbie Olson

Good morning! Debbie Olson here, privileged to be a guest of Sunny Studio today! When Mendi shared the Sunny Studio new release, I knew that I’d love playing with it; so today I have cards using the Breakfast Puns and Tiny Dancers stamp sets to share.

First up is Breakfast Puns - and there are SO many fun possibilities in this stamp set! I read all of the sentiments and still couldn’t decide upon just one or two, so I chose several of them, keeping the images relating to the sentiment in the center of my card. I stamped the images in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored them with Copic markers, cut them out with their coordinating dies, and airbrushed a hint of BG53 in the background to make the images stand out more. I stamped my chosen sentiment combination, and then used foam tape to pop up the images. The background is really simple—more images from Breakfast Puns stamped close together in a kraft colored ink to create a subtle background.

Shown below are the Copic markers that I used to color the Breakfast Puns images.

Next I have a Tiny Dancers card to share. Do you have children or grandchildren who are aspiring ballerinas?  Then you might need this one—it’s is a darling stamp set!  I made a smaller card for this one, 3-1/2” x 5” so that my focal ballerina would still be fairly large on the card base.

Here is the inside of my card. As you can see, the focal image is actually on the inside of this card rather than the outside. I masked off the same size circle that I had die-cut on the front and airbrushed a simple background with my Copic markers. The Tiny Dancer is popped up on foam tape so that she sticks up a bit through the window.

Shown below are the Copic markers that I used to color the Tiny Dancers image. I kept her hair smooth rather than textured just because she is pretty small. I used a glue pen to add some glitter to the tutu, lightening it and giving it some texture.

Honestly, the only challenging part was gluing on those sequins—not one of my wiser choices in life, but I did like them after I finished! (Be smart—use a frame die instead.)
