Sunny Studio Stamps • Winter Release • Sweet Treat Bag


Hi everyone,

I have one more Sunny Studio Stamps Winter Release project to share with you using the Sweet Treat Bag Dies. This set is so much fun! I love the size and the different looks of gift bags you can create.

I went with a closed version using the semi-circle top flap and picked patterned papers from the Holiday Cheer 6x6 Paper (polka dots, stripes) and Very Merry 6x6 Paper pack (grid). The bag will hold some tea, so the cute mouse in the mug from the Merry Mice set was the perfect match. I stamped the mouse and little cupcake from the Party Pups set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images with Copic Markers.

Next, I die cut a stitched circle from the pink grid paper and matted it with a green cardstock circle which is slightly bigger. I popped up the mouse image with foam tape. The sentiment is included in the Foxy Christmas set. I stamped it in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Finally, I added a red die-cut heart to the mug and three White Pearls below the sentiment.

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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Winter Release • Scalloped Tags


Hi everyone,

today I'm sharing this duo of cute Christmas tags that I created with the Sunny Studio Stamps Scalloped Tag Square Dies. They come in two sizes and I paired them up with the Gleeful Reindeer Stamps.

For the bigger tag, I cut out a square of patterned paper from the Very Merry 6x6 Paper pack to help building a little winter scene. I stamped the reindeers and gifts in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.

The smaller tag is a actually a shaker. Therefore, I die cut the scalloped tag twice from petrol cardstock and created a window by using a square die for one of the die-cuts. I backed the window with a piece of acetate and adhered strips of foam tape to the edges. Before adhering the back, I filled the shaker with white and silver sequins as well as aqua flakes.

I stamped the sentiments (the 'Merry Christmas' is included in the Merry Mice set) in VersaMark Ink onto red cardstock banners and white heat embossed them. I used gingham ribbon and natural jute string to finish off my tags.

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

Hello Bluebird • Warm Wishes and Merry Christmas


Hi peeps,

today I'm sharing a Christmas card with you were I mixed and matched several products from the last Hello Bluebird Holiday Release. I love how well the stamps go together! Just like they were meant to be :-)

I combined the Merry Mice stamps (mice, ladder, bow, single gift) with the O Christmas Tree set (bunny, gifts, candy cane) and added the little birdie from the Snowball Fight set. The images were colored with Copics and cut out with the coordinating dies.

For the background, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks (Tattered Rose, Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac). I cut the bold Warm Wishes Words Die from the center of my ink blended panel and stacked the words together with three additional layers of white carstock die-cuts. I pressed the top of the die-cut into my VersaMark ink pad and covered it with Judikins Iridescent Sparkle Embossing Powder. I heat embossed it and inlaid the words back into the negative space.

I also stamped and white heat embossed the little Merry Christmas banner from the Cocoa Party set onto vellum. Finally, I assembled my scene by adhering the images with foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping my! Until next time!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Winter Release • Feeling Frosty


Hello everyone,

the Sunny Studio Stamps Feeling Frosty set is one of my favorites and I already used it a couple of times. So I wanted to come up with something different and tried no-line coloring which I find quite intimidating to be honest.

With the help of some masking, I created a one layer scene. I combined the Feeling Frosty snowmen and cups with the hillside border from the Scenic Route set. For a very light stamped color, I used the Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Coloring Detail Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils.

The sky was done by blending Distress Oxide Inks (Milled Lavender and Spun Sugar) and splattering white paint with a brush. I cut one of the Fancy Frames Square Dies from white cardstock to frame my little winter scene.

I think the sentiment is the perfect match for these snowman friends who share a cup of hot cocoa together. It's stamped in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. I die cut a stitched banner and adhered it with foam tape. To finish off my card, I added White Clay Snowflakes and a Pink Clay Heart.

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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Winter Release • Hogs and Kisses


Hi everyone,

I'm back again with another Christmas card featuring the Sunny Studio Stamps Hogs & Kisses set. I combined the cute piggy with the house border stamp from the Scenic Route set.

For my background, I blended together some blue Distress Oxide Inks (Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire) onto a piece of Bristol paper and added white paint splatters with a brush. I stamped the row of houses and the pig in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and did some coloring with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.

The pun sentiment is a combination of the gold heat embossed word 'Hoggy' and the scripty 'Christmas' die which is included in the Christmas Garland Frame set and stretches across the whole width of my card. I die cut it from red glitter cardstock. Finally, I adhered the house border panel and pig with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

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

DT Stempelgarten Challenge December

Good morning peeps,

are you still creating holiday cards like I am? If yes, I invite you to join this month's Stempelgarten Challenge with the theme Christmas.


I made a card with the fun cuties from the Avery Elle "Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals" stamp set. They are so much fun to color and I love the little accessories you can dress them up with.

I created a top-folding card base from white cardstock and die cut the chevron patterned paper (MFT "Fresh Squeezed Chevron" 6x6 paper pack) with the largest of the MFT "A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2" Die-namics. I also die cut the stitched window frame (MFT "Blueprints 27" Die-namics) from aqua cardstock.

Next, I colored the critters and accessories with Copics and fussy cut them out. I tucked them into the three top windows.

The scripty "Christmas" word die included in the Sunny Studio Stamps Christmas Garland Frame set fits perfectly across the bottom window. I white heat embossed the word "Greetings" (MFT "Hand Lettered Holiday") underneath.

You will have time until December 31st, 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.–.
