Happy Father's Day

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with another post for Sunsational Stamps. As we are heading towards Father's Day, I've created a card for Dad.

Aren't the cute?  What golfer wouldn't love this card?  And it's so easy to customize just for dad.  What color are his clubs?  What is the club flag?  Make it special just for dad.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Cool Cari

I used Cool Cari for my card today.
I attempted a magic color slider card.  I'm not really sure I did it right, but I do like how it turned out so I'm going with it.

I love this seashell paper and will be so sad if they discontinue it.
I used a mask to cover her up and sponged the background using Tim Holtz inks.

Be sure to check out the new additions in the shop.
And don't forget our challenge!

Sea-Sational Ocean Critters by Sarah Rosse

Hello friends, Sarah here with a card from the ocean! This card uses the gorgeous whale from the Critters digital stamp set. This can be purchased instore at the Sunsational Stamps store by clicking here. As you see below, this has many options for all of your beach, swimming or ocean themed projects.

The background of this card was created using Zig clean colour brush markers. As pictured below, I scribbled various shades of blue on to my craft mat, then spritzed with water. I then took my piece of cardstock through this and ended up with this beautiful mix of colours.

I then used an embossing folder "Bubble" in my collection to give the impression for the card background. I love the look of this with the blue colours. The whale was coloured using the Zig clean colour brush markers with a water brush pen. I have layered the whale to give a raised affect amongst the waves. The sentiment is from Jess Craft Digitals. Let's take a closer look at him.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and background ideas, please don't forget about our monthly challenge (the theme is Swim, Beach, Ocean) you still have time to enter.

Ocean Critters

Good morning - it's Helen here to share a card I've made using the very cute 'Ocean Critters' digi stamp set:

You can find the set here in the Sunsational Stamps shop.

I printed the whole set out ad then used the bottom two critters plus the wave as my card base.  I then cut out the little octupus and attached him with foam tape to give the card some dimension.

All the elements were coloured with Promarkers and then layered up with some plain and patterned papers.

Talking of the ocean .... have you seen our May challenge yet?  The theme is 'swim - beach - ocean' and you can enter using any products although you will get extra entries in the draw if you use products from Sunsational Stamps.

Have a look here for all the details.

Enjoy your weekend!

Turtley Awesome

Hi folks.  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.

The theme this week at Sunsational Stamps is Swim/Beach/Ocean.   I used the Ocean Critters 2 to make my card and, as the title of this post implies, I think this l'il guy is turtley awesome!

For something a bit different, I decided I would paper piece my image rather than color it and I think he's pretty happy with how he looks.  To accomplish this in my Silhouette design screen, I traced around the outside of the image and filled it with digital patterned paper from a Green/Purple Plaid collection.  This was the bottom layer which I printed on the circle over  a wave border I made and colored in semi-transparent purple.  I also created the greeting using the text to path option.

I printed the turtle three additional times; once plain white and two more times with different plaids and fussy cut the pieces.  The focal image was placed on a larger mat cut from scrap.  Another plaid from the collection was used for the panels, which I placed on a base of Green Galore card stock.  Here's another look from the side.

On the reverse I placed the patterned paper panels just on the two outer flaps with my matted sentiment in the middle.  I thought I'd make a cute thank you card for the treat of a trip to the beach!

 As an alternative, I created a different sentiment as a friendship card.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and I look forward to sharing another with you next time.  In the meantime, come and visit me at Katydid Cards if you get the chance.

Before I leave you, I want to remind you about our monthly challenge ( the theme is Swim, Beach, Ocean) you still have time to enter.  The challenge post can be found here

No Disguising Dad

Hi there crafty friends, Sharon aka One Crafty Mrs. here to share my Monday make with you.  I had a little help and used Lori Whitlock’s Circle Flip Swing card file for the Silhouette Cameo to make today’s card.  I used the faces from the King Of The Grill set by Lisa @ Sunsational Stamps. 


No Disguising Dad-May 15-ocm_SS


Triple Flip Fold

It may look simple but this card gave me a run for my money trying to figure out how to fold it, lol.  Once I figured that out, I printed the faces and cut them each into a small circle to fit. I cut 3 more larger circles out to layer behind the faces.  I used my PrismaColor Markers and a couple of Copics to color the faces.  I cut 3 more small circles out of white cardstock and 3 more larger circles to layer behind them.  Then I laid all of those pieces aside for the time being.



Tripe Flip Fold 2


I used the template from the card file to cut two pieces of cardstock for the front and inside panel of my card. I used a PrismaColor Marker to run along the edge of the cardstock to give it some definition.  Then I adhered it to the card front with some Tombo Multi Mono Liquid Glue.  I cut another piece of cardstock and adhered it to the inside.




The final step was to attached the faces to the front and the sentiments to the inside.  I added a piece of washi tape and called it done!

Fathers Day Card

Hello everyone
This is a box  card I created for Fathers Day. To make the box card I followed a video on you tube in order to get proper measurements. I used a dark blue cardstock to make the box. I picked out a light blue striped cardstock for the top layer. I chose the king of the grill stamps that was sent to me from sunsational stamps. All was colored using the spectrum noir markers. The pieces are attached with clear acetate to set them to the desired height. This card was fun and easy to do, be sure to check out the blog to see all other beautiful crafts that were completed from different members of the designer team.

Papa Bear

Hi everyone this is Mona back with a fun Fathers Day card using a stamp set called 
http://sunsationalstamps.com/product/love-bear-male-version/ . I started by my background using a background die from Gina Marie called sunburnt. I die cut it three times in different colours every time.  Glued  my puzzle background onto my card base which is 41/4 x 51/2 . Now for the fun part colouring the image using my spectrum noire and my white get pen for details. Went on to fussy cut the bear and the sentiment.

Dad's Cooking Up Some Fun

Hi there, I know Mother's Day is right around the corner, but I am already working on Father's Day cards, so I would like to share this one with you featuring a couple of the Sunsational Stamps digi sets; King of the Grill and Love Bear (male)
King-of-the-Grill Digi Set
Love Bear Man Digi Set
Dad's Cooking Card
I started out by stamping a denim patterned background onto the apron in Memento Ink so that I could color over it with alcohol markers.  I used a dark blue, medium red and a cool grey.  Then I colored the bear with E37 and used a paper towel dipped in rubbing alcohol to dab the bear to create "fur".  I cut the bear apart, so I could put the apron on him.  I popped up his head and added the arms.  The grilling tools were added and the bottom of each tool was popped up to give it a little dimension.

Sunsational Fathers Day

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a Fathers Day card to give you a little inspiration for that card you may need to make.

Great Sport Set:

After printing the Great Sport Stamp Set, I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color the football.
I used a 2.5" circle die to cut a black circle and a 1.5" circle to cut the green. A gold seal sticker was used in between and a #1 epoxy sticker was put in the middle. The main base is 4.25"x5.5" brown, second layer is 4"x5.25" olive, 3.75" x 5" in green/white stripe with a 3.75" x 1.5" brown layer on top. I cut the sentiment .75" wide with a banner tail at the end. I cut 2 banner tail strips .5" wide and adhered them to the underside of the medal. The football was attached using foam tape to give it added dimension, and with this my project was complete.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Please come back tomorrow to see what Shylee has to show you.

Bear Hugs by Sarah Rosse

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with you with this gorgeous 'Love Bear' digital stamp set. This set can be purchased in store by clicking here. The bear for this card was coloured using Stampin Up! Blendabilities markers, with some little googly eyes added to make him look even cuter. Here's what I used for this card.

The background of this card was created using Brushos - Iam just in love with these water crystals and the way they react with water. I talk often about the Brusho Crystal Colours in my blog posts, so I wont go on more about them, but they are so much fun...give it a go! Lets take a closer look at that marvellous colour.

You can see I backed the bear with some small pieces of cardboard to make him have some height. As you can see here, it is easy to do and makes it stand out on the card front. The card sentiment 'I love your big bear hugs' was also coloured using Brushos.

The base for the bear to stand on was cut using some stitched die cuts from my collection - just adds a nice touch to the card. The card was then all adhered together and finished!

Thankyou for joining me for this versatile project - great for Fathers Day or just letting that man in your life know how much you love them! The onling shop for Sunstational Stamps can be found by clcking here - get in quick for quick and immediate download of your fav digi stamps!
