Guest Designer Spotlight: Cards with Keeway Tsao

Hello friends! It’s Keeway Tsao from Kiwi Koncepts and let’s build some fun scene cards together with the Tropical Scenes stamps. For both of my cards today, I will also be using stitched dies to create a inlaid window to really enhance the depths of these tropical scenes.

For this first card, I started by coloring up the jungle border image from the set with Copic markers. These vines look extra good layered so I colored two of them. For my critter of choice, I brought out the Fabulous Flamingos stamps, stamped out two of them, colored and die cut them out.

To give the vines a dimensional arrangement, I used the Stitched Semi-Circle dies. I first blended a background with Pine Needles, Mowed Lawn, and Antique Linen distress oxide inks and then used the largest from of the Stitched Semi-Circle to die cut a window out. I adhered one of the jungle border in front and one tucked behind the window.

I stamped my sentiment just below the window and when I put together all the pieces, I had the center piece setback while the outer frame was adhered with foam tape. I tucked in some iridescent sequins within the framed area to complete the card.

I used the same technique again, but with a mix of some different products. This time around, I used the ocean coral border from Tropical Scenes stamps. This time going for an underwater scene, I used the Sea You Soon and Best Fishes stamps.

Since I am working with a much more saturated background, I heat embossed my sentiment in white to help it stand out. I adhered the center piece directly onto my base card to create the setback look and the frame around it was adhered with foam tape.

I built my images around the sentiment, giving each of my oceanic critters a place to be in this scene. I added them with foam tape and then I brought out the sequins again for some sparkly details. In fact, the sequins gave it a cute bubbly look!

hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Have a lovely summer!
