Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Miss Moo

14.02.2019

Hi everyone,

today I'm back with a new card for the Sunny Studio Stamps blog. For a change, I created a circle shaped card using the adorable Miss Moo Stamps. To build a little scene, I combined the sweet cow with the mountains from the Alpaca Holiday set and the clouds from the Comic Strip Everyday Dies.

First, I created a round card base from light grey cardstock using a 4 3/16 inch circle die. For the scene background, I die cut two circles from patterned paper (purple: Spring Sunburst 6x6 Paper; teal: Gingham Pastels 6x6 Paper).

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I adhered the mountain row right over the edge where the two patterned papers meet.

To frame my scene, I die cut one of the Fancy Frames Circle Dies from white cardstock. I doubled up the frames for a little dimension. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink on a strip of black cardstock and white heat embossed it. I adhered the cow and sentiment with foam tape and added a tiny die cut heart to the middle cloud.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you're having a fabulous day!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Spring Greetings

07.02.2019

Hello everyone,

are you ready for spring like I am? So today I have the matching card for you ;-)

It features the adorable Spring Greetings Stamps – a wonderful 2x3 mini set with two bunnies, a tulip and a scripty sentiment. I created a little spring scene and added the chick and easter egg basket from the Chubby Bunny set.

I started with an A2 landscape top-folding card base made from white cardstock. I die cut the pink patterned paper from the Gingham Pastels 6x6 Paper pack using a stitched rectangle die. Next, I did some faded ink blending for the sky with «Tumbled Glass» Distress Oxide Ink on a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock. I let it dry completely and stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink. I heat embossed it with «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder by Ranger.

To frame my scene, I die cut one of the Fancy Frames Rectangle Dies from white cardstock. I used the grassy border from the Comic Strip Everyday Dies set and cut it from the green grid patterned paper.

Now, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images. I tucked the tulips behind the grass border and popped up the chick, bunny and basket with foam tape.

DT Stempelgarten Challenge February

05.02.2019

Good morning everyone,

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and the new theme for the Stempelgarten Challenge is «Love».


http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/

Have you already seen that some of the popular US brands have been added to the Stempelgarten Online Shop? They now carry Avery Elle, Lawn Fawn, Mama Elephant and Sunny Studio Stamps! Makes me sooo happy!

For my love themed card I picked one of the very first Mama Elephant stamp sets I ever bought – it's «Pandamonium» and I still love it!


I stamped the two pandas and a little heart in VersaFine «Onyx Black» ink and did some light coloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I fussy cut the images with scissors leaving a small white border.

A couple of weeks ago, I created some Alcohol Ink backgrounds and this pink/red one was just perfect for my card. I die cut a heart (My Favorite Things «Pierced Heart STAX» Die-namics) from a light grey patterned paper (Pinkfresh Studio «Indigo Hills 2») to create a window to go over my bright background. I also cut a strip of black and white striped paper and adhered it to the left.

Next, I stamped the sentiment on a grey cardstock strip with VersaMark ink and white heat embossed it. As it says «kiss kiss, i love u.», I positioned the pandas close to each other to make them look like they are kissing ;-)

You will have time until February 28th, 2019 to join the Stempelgarten Challenge and this is the prize you could win:


A craft package from the Stempelgarten Online Shop with a value of CHF 20.–.

I'm entering the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Anything Goes».

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Staggered Circle

31.01.2019

Hi peeps,

it's Thursday again and time for another inspiration card over on the Sunny Studio Stamps blog. Today I'm showcasing the fabulous Staggered Circle Dies. I couldn't resist creating another card with the cute Love Monkey Stamps.

With this fun die you can create up to 5 circle windows across your card. I did some partial die cutting on a piece of grey cardstock to cut out 4 circles. My card is more narrow than an usual A2 card and measures 4 1/16 x 6 5/16 inch. I love that there is the stitching detail on both sides of the cut line. That's why I also die cut some circles from the new Spring Release paper packs and inlaid them into the window openings.

I scattered the sentiments from the Love Monkey Stamps set all over my card and white heat embossed them. Next, I stamped the monkeys, bananas and flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and adhered them with foam tape. To finish off my card, I added Doodlebug Tiny Heart Sprinkles in matching colors.



Thank you so much for stopping by!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Chubby Bunny

24.01.2019

Hello everyone,

I'm back again on the Sunny Studio Stamps blog with a new card showcasing the adorable Chubby Bunny Stamps. I just love their cute little faces!

At first, I created an A2 landscape top-folding card base from white cardstock. I used the Window Trio Square Dies to cut three openings into a panel of lilac cardstock (MFT «Grapesicle»). I also chose a stitched scalloped die (MFT «Stitched Scallop Basic Edges» Die-namics) to create a decorative border.

Next, I took a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and marked where the windows would be with a pencil. I did some light handed ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks (Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender, Tumbled Glass). I picked one of the purple Gingham Pastels 6x6 Papers, cut it to size and adhered it at the bottom of my card base and popped up the window panel with foam tape.

I stamped the bunnies, sentiment banner and a little flower in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers (colors listed below). I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and adhered them with foam squares.


Copic colors used
Aqua: BG10, BG11, BG32, BG45
Green: G40, YG11, YG13
Grey: C00, C0, C1, C3
Pink: RV10, RV02, RV55
Purple: V000, V01, V12, V15

Thank you so much for stopping by! See you soon!

Hello Bluebird • Yeti or Not • Yeti Hugs

21.01.2019

Hi crafty friends,

today I'm back with a card using one of the cuties from the Hello Bluebird  Yeti or Not stamp set which of course isn't only for Christmas. I created a simple love themed card and combined this little guy with a gorgeous patterned paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio «More Than Words» 6x6 paper pack.

To match the pretty pastel color scheme, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxides (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Milled Lavender). I watered down the Worn Lipstick and added some ink splatters with a paint brush. Next, I used the MFT «Pierced Heart STAX» Die-namics to cut out a big heart which I adhered with foam tape letting it slightly hang over the left edge of the card.

For a change, I stamped the image in Memento «London Fog» ink (thought the grey would go better with the soft colors). I colored the yeti with Copics and used the coordinating die to cut him out.

I white heat embossed the sentiment on grey cardstock and used again one of the
«Pierced Heart STAX» Die-namics to die cut a smaller heart. The yeti and sentiment heart were adhered with foam tape. To finish the card, I added two Doodlebug Tiny Heart Sprinkles.

Thank you for stopping by!
