Sunny Studio Stamps • Holiday Release • Lacy Snowflake Dies

21.10.2021

Hello everyone,

today I'm sharing a shimmery winter card using the Lacy Snowflake Dies. They go perfectly with the snowflakes from the Snowflake Circle Frame Dies.

First, I started off with an A2 card base made from purple cardstock. Next, I created a watercolor background using Nuvo Shimmer Powders (Atlantis Burst and Blue Blitz) and Distress Oxide Inks (Salvaged Patina and Wilted Violet). I also added some shimmer spray to the whole background (see photo below).


To add some texture, I ran the dried background through my die cutting machine with the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder. I trimmed the panel down to be a bit smaller than A2 and adhered it to the card base.

The snowflakes were die cut from white glitter cardstock. I die cut a piece of vellum with the second largest of the Stitched Semi-Circle Dies. I stamped the scripty 'Happy New Year' sentiment from the Season's Greetings set in VersaMark Ink onto white cardstock and heat embossed it with some pretty WOW! Royal Crush Embossing Glitter. I used the coordinating word die to cut it out.

Finally, I assembled my card by scattering the snowflakes over the card. All the die-cuts are perfect to hide the adhesive behind the vellum semi-circle which I attached to the right side. I added some pearls and crystals as embellishments.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Holiday Release • Holiday Express

14.10.2021

Hi everyone,

crafting for the upcoming Christmas season has begun and today I'm sharing a card using the Holiday Express Stamps.

I picked the wonderful snowy scene from the Very Merry Paper pack, trimmed it down and adhered it to a card base. Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. I love how you can tuck the critters as well as the holiday accessories inside the train.

The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a pink cardstock banner and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I created some dimension on my card by adhering most of the images and the sentiment banner with foam tape.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a beautiful day!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Holiday Release • Forest Trees Stencils

07.10.2021

Hello everyone,

today I'm back with a clean and simple Christmas card in pretty pinks using the fabulous Forest Trees Stencils.

I started off with an A2 landscape card base and die cut a white cardstock panel with the stitched rectangle included in the Frilly Frames Quatrefoil Dies set. I also cut out a window using the largest of the Stitched Oval 2 Dies.

Next, I cut down a piece of smooth Bristol cardstock to go behind the window and started applying Distress Oxide Inks through the stencils. I wanted to create an ombré look and went from light to dark pink (Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves). I used all three stencils and one even twice to fill the whole panel. I let it dry before adding white and moonlight ink splatters with a small brush for a bit of snowfall. I adhered the stenciled panel directly to my card base and popped up the oval window frame with foam tape.

For the sentiment, I combined a die cut with a heat embossed text. The word 'merry' is included in the Christmas Garland Frame Die set. I cut it from silver glitter cardstock as well as white cardstock since it is quite delicate. I stamped the word 'christmas' from the Hedgey Holidays set in VersaMark Ink onto a small cardstock strip and white heat embossed it. To finish off the card, I adhered the sentiment in the middle and added three white star sequins around it.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Holiday Release • Words of Gratitude

30.09.2021

Hi everyone,

today's focus is on the Word of Gratitude Stamps which are perfect to simply say Thank You in many different ways.

I combined the largest of the Stitched Rectangle Dies with the Frilly Frames Chevron background and die cut it from white cardstock. I also die cut the chevrons from three colors of cardstock and alternately inlaid them. I adhered the chevron background with a piece of fun foam to the white A2 card base.

The sentiment was stamped in two colors onto a white stitched cardstock circle. I additionally heat embossed the pink words 'thank you' with clear embossing powder. Next, I die cut a couple of Winter Greenery sprigs from white cardstock and adhered them behind the sentiment circle which I popped up with foam tape. To embellish the card, I added three Iridescent Pearls in matching colors.


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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Holiday Release • Fall Friends

23.09.2021

Hello everyone,

we're slowly heading into fall as the leaves change their colors and the temperatures get cooler. With today's card I'm highlighting the adorable Fall Friends Stamps which are perfect to build scenes by using all the fun accessories.

I started off with an A2 card base made from Kraft cardstock. For the sunset background, I did some ink blending on smooth Bristol cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks (Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmelade, Abandoned Coral and Candied Apple). I added gold paint splatters with a small brush.

Next, I cut two grass pieces using the borders included in the Slimline Nature Borders Dies and Picket Fence set. The Distress Oxide colors I used for them are Bundled Sage and Rustic Wilderness. And again, I added ink splatters for a little bit of interest. When everything was completely dry, I ran all ink blended pieces through my die cutting machine with the stitched rectangle die from the Frilly Frames Retro Petals Dies set. Then I layered them on top of each other.

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a red cardstock strip and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Finally, I assembled my card and adhered all the elements with liquid glue.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an awesome day!

MFT 2021 Card Design Superstar • Clean & Simple Genius

22.09.2021

Hi peeps,

so happy I had some quiet me-time to dive into my stash and get creative. Of course I didn't want to pass the opportunity to take part in the 2021 Card Design Superstar Contest hosted by My Favorite Things. This annual event is always so much fun and really inspiring!

I decided to create a card for the Clean & Simple Genius category. I picked up the idea from the card I made for this contest back in 2017 ;-)

I adore this cute cat with the big glasses from the Housecats stamp set and combined it with the scratching dog included in the Birdie Brown Woof Pack stamp set. Although I planned out a more simple scene, I wanted to tell a fun little story, too. It just makes me giggle!

The background and floor were made with two wonderful papers from the Wallpaper Patterns 6x6 paper pad. I love this combo of yellow and grey which happens to be the Pantone Color of the Year 2021 as well. I used a narrow strip die from the retired Aquarium Die-namics set to cut the shelf the cat is sitting on from brown woodgrain cardstock.

I stamped the cat, dog, tennis ball and plants in Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and colored them with Copic markers. I fussy cut the images with scissors and adhered them to my card with liquid glue and foam tape. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a piece of Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and used one of the retired Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut it out.

Thank you so much for stopping by! And good luck to everyone!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Holiday Release • Crisp Autumn

16.09.2021

Hi everyone,

today's colorful card features the Crisp Autumn Stamps and a special die cutting technique.

The bright color scheme was inspired by the beautiful Sweater Weather 6x6 Papers. This means, I added aqua, pink and blue to the traditional fall colors. I created an A2 card base from white cardstock and cut out the blue leafy paper with a slightly smaller rectangle die.

I stamped all layers of the leaves and pumpkins with dye inks (you can find the ink colors below) and the help of a stamp positioning tool. I cut them out with the coordinating dies

Next, I did the "Die cuts within larger die" technique. Therefore, I arranged the die cuts on a circle and put a piece of masking paper on top to keep everything in place. Then I run it through my die-cutting machine with a regular circle die. I flipped it over and added foam tape to the back of the die cuts. I adhered it to a white cardstock cirle before carefully removing the masking paper. I trimmed off a bit from the right side and lined it up with the patterned paper.

The scripty sentiment was stamped in dark blue, cut out with the matching die and I adhered it using liquid glue. Finally, I added three White Diamond Jewels to embellish the card.

Altenew Dye Inks used:
Orange pumpkins: Sunkissed, Orange Cream, Autumn Blaze
Green pumpkins: Minty Mint, Sweet Leaf, Just Green
Pumpkin stems: Forest Glades, Evergreen
Yellow leaves: Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee
Green leaves: Bamboo, Parrot, Olive
Pink leaves: Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite, Razzleberry
Aqua leaves: Mountain Mist,Volcano Lake, Lagoon, Emerald
Sentiment: Sapphire

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a happy day!
