Guest Designer Spotlight: Cards with Leanne West

Hi there! Leanne West here and I’m so happy to be a guest for Sunny Studio today!! I’ve made 5 cards to share all featuring some of the newest Sunny Studio stamps. These new sets have so many fun and playful images for scene building which is right up my alley. All the images on my cards today were colored with Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies. I love making custom backgrounds so all the cards will have some form of inking or pattern stamping.

For these first two cards I wanted to create summery beach scenes using images from Beach Babies, Sunny Sentiments, and Island Getaway. I just love that all of Sunny Studio’s stamps can be mixed and matched to give you endless scene building possibilities!

I had to make a card using the boy on the wave runner from Beach Babies - he’s just too cute! And I put him on an action wobbler for some extra fun!

Up next is a couple of cards using Fast Food Fun. When I was looking for coloring ideas for the food I came across a retro fast food illustration that had a chalkboard like striped background that I loved so I tried to recreate it here. I also used some of the new Classic Gingham pattern paper. I think the red, black, and gray is such a classic color combo which fits perfectly with this card's theme.

My second fast food card is a 4 bar size. I used several of the food images and made a custom sentiment by masking off part of the letters from “great” to spell “eat". All the guys in my family are so hard to buy for but I can always give them gift cards to their favorite restaurant. The 4 bar size is perfect for holding a gift card. I will be making several of these to have on hand!

Lastly and maybe my favorite is the card I made using Critter Campout. I knew I was going to need more real estate to build the camping scene I had in mind so this card measures 4" x 9”. I wanted this card to have a rustic great outdoors vibe so I borrowed the evergreen tree images from the Gleeful Reindeer set to help with that. There’s lots of ink blending on this card’s background to create the night sky and the hills which I hand cut. 

I had so much fun making all these cards! Many thanks to Sunny Studio for having me as a guest today. Have a great weekend and happy stamping!!
