Guest Designer Spotlight: Savanna Safari Cards with Nicky Meek

Hey everyone, it's Nicky Meek here with you. Safari anybody? Today I'm happily guest designing for Sunny Studio Stamps again and I'm featuring the fun new stamp set Savanna Safari for my two cards I'm sharing here.

My first card is a slimline card with finished dimensions of 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. I prepared the base and set it to one side and then took a panel and stamped and ink blended it using several colours in the yellow and orange family for a sunset scene.

On Copic friendly cardstock the cute critters from the stamp set were stamped and Copic coloured, die cut with the coordinating dies, and applied to the scene with foam tape. Points were highlighted with a white gel pen.

The sentiment was stamped and applied with foam tape and I finished the card by using a black gel pen to dot in some ground texture and add the birds to the sky.

I wanted to create something quite a bit different for my second card which is a standard A2 finished size.

Again I ink blended a panel using Distress Oxides and distressed it just a little. I took the 'watering hole' die and die cut the opening in the panel. I took the cut out piece and ink blended it and then die cut a little 'wave' opening so that the hippo's head could poke through. The panel was backed with foam tape and applied to the card base and then I recessed the 'water' in the gap created and adhered it.

I stamped the greenery around the pond directly and also stamped and die cut some of the images for some dimension, backing them with foam tape and applying them. All other images were stamped on Copic friendly cardstock and applied with more of the foam tape and as planned the hippo was placed in the watering hole to cool off!

To finish out the card I dotted in some ground texture, stamped and applied the sentiment and added some tiny sparkling clear sequins in the water for a little interest.

Many thanks for stopping by today.
