Guest Designer Spotlight: Cards with Wanda Guess

Hi everyone! Wanda Guess here! I'm always happy and excited to be the guest designer on the Sunny Studio Blog! I'm so delighted to work with the beautiful and fun stamps and dies from Sunny Studio! I'm in love with everything SUMMER in the Sunny Studio storefront right now. 

It was hard to decide what to feature today, so I used, oh, about 10 stamp sets! LOL. I was dreaming of the beach and palm trees, and flowers. I had so much fun creating two cards to share with you. Grab a pina colada and take a look! Please visit me on my blog sometime! You can find me at A Blog Called Wanda! Or find me on Instagram. Let's get started. Aloha!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Coastal Cuties Stitched Semi-Circle Dies Sending Sunshine Tropical Scenes Summer Themed Card by Wanda Guess

First up is this coastal cutie, swimming by on her floatie! On the shore, some happy little crustaceans and swaying palm trees. This finished card is a 5x5 inch square made from white cardstock. I used the Stitched Semi-Circle dies to create a frame for the waves and sand. I built my card around the semi circle. I also used a layer of hot pink striped paper from the Striped Silly Paper Pack. The sand was stamped and die cut onto Kraft cardstock. The waves were die cut from aqua cardstock. All the images were stamped and die cut with the matching dies and then colored with Copic Markers.

I added bits of Diamond Stickles to the images for some sparkle. To finish off the card, I created a sweet bouquet of a pineapple and Monstera Leaves. The sentiment was heat embossed with white onto black cardstock. Everything was assembled using foam dots for dimension. I also really like to use a white gel pen to add accents over my Copic coloring. I love that little parrot sitting in the tree watching everything! These stamps make me smile.

Next up is an elegant floral card that reminds me of my vacation to Hawaii several years ago. I used the Radiant Plumeria stamp set and the Hawaiian Hibiscus stamp set to make this card. Again, it's a 5x5 inch square card made from white cardstock (one of my favorite sizes for cards). I die cut the gorgeous Frilly Frames Retro Petals dies over pretty green paper from the Gingham Pastels Paper Pack. The sentiment was heat embossed in gold onto a strip of vellum.

These florals are 3-4 step stamping and they are PERFECTION! I used a MISTI to get everything lined up just perfectly. (Be sure to refer to the stamping guides on the Sunny Studio website). I used shades of the islands....greens, pinks and yellows. I layered everything and attached the images with foam squares. Aloha indeed!

Big thanks to Mendi for having me as a guest! I'm very blessed that she always invites me back! Wishing you a happy Summer!
