Hello Sunny friends! Today I’m sharing a fun card using just one image from the City Streets stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps.  I love the look of a retro VW bug or van. I have never owned one, but I just think they are interesting and scream summer-fun vibes!  Whenever I see one in a stamp set, I’m immediately drawn to that particular image. No surprise, it happened again. I focused right in on the car included in this city-inspired set and made this card. It’s okay not to use every image in a set every time. Sometimes a card can be fun using just one design. For this card, I’m using the following products:

City Street stamp set  (There is also a coordinating die set available for this set that I did not use.)

Tropical Trees background set

Country Carnival stamp set  for the front panel sentiment (There is also a coordinating die set available for this set that I did not use.)

Inside Greetings Congrats stamp set for the inside sentiment

To make this 5″ X 7″ card, I stamped the automobile repeatedly over a 5″ X  7″ front panel cut from white cardstock. I used my MISTI stamping tool to line up the bottom of the image to ensure a clean grid of cars. I kept some space at the bottom of the card front for a sentiment.  I colored the cars using four Copic colors: B01, B00, V04, YG23. I color-blocked the cars to make each one different. How cute are these cars?! This was a new color combo for me, too.

Using the Tropical Trees background set, I die cut a palm tree and four clouds in varying sizes. I used the two shades of blue to color the clouds and cut the tree from colored cardstock. The elements were added to the front panel. I used foam dots to attach the palm tree so that it stood out from the background. A thin green 1/8″ strip of cardstock was glued right under the tree to ground it. I stamped the sentiment, “enjoy the ride” underneath the strip.

Inside the card, I stamped a phrase from the set, Inside Greetings Congrats stamp set. This card could be used for  many life changing adventures such as a retirement, change of job, graduation, wedding, and/or travel adventure. It’s just a fun summer card with a little unexpected twist! I’m gonna say it…. “Way to go, Bobbi!” Haha!
