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.

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.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have an amazing day!

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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Holiday Release • Icing Borders

09.09.2021

Hello everyone,

today I have a love and winter themed card for you showing you how you can use the Icicle Border Dies as accents on your project. I die cut the ric-rac border from five colors of cardstock to create a repeating design element in the background.


I started off with a white A2 card base and trimmed down a light grey cardstock panel to be 3/16 inch smaller on each side. Next, I adhered the ric-rac borders with liquid glue and cut off the excess. I also die cut one of the Stitched Hearts from lavender cardstock. For a bit of dimension, I popped it off with foam tape.

I love the versatile Bear Hugs Stamps and picked the adorable polar bear couple as well as a little heart. I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut out the bears. The heart was fussy cut with scissors. I adhered the images in the middle of the heart die-cut.

The scripty word 'hugs' is included in the Scalloped Oval Mats 3 Dies set and I cut it three times from white heavyweight cardstock. I stacked the die cuts on top of each other and adhered it to the card. Finally, I added three clear sequins.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Holiday Release • Bewitching

02.09.2021

Hi everyone,

I'm excited to share my first Holiday Release inspiration project. Today we're featuring the cute Bewitching Stamps.

I started off with a white A2 card base on which I added tiny black ink splatters. Next, I cut random strips from four colors of cardstock and repeated them to create a background.

The stamp set comes with the adorable kitty, a witch hat, a cauldron and a trio of bubbles. I also picked three pumpkins (Fall Friends, Harvest Mice) and a scarecrow (Farm Fresh) to create a little Halloween scene. All images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink onto a white cardstock strip and assembled the card by adhering everything with liquid glue.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Stitched Dies Hello

19.08.2021

Hello everyone,

it's Designer's Choice week and I created a geometric CAS card with stitched dies and a pretty color combo.

First, I started off with a white 5" x 5" square card base. I die cut a bunch of stitched circles from five colors of cardstock using the Window Quad Circle Grid Die. The stitched heart is part of the Cupcake Shape Dies set and I cut it 8 times from white cardstock.

I stamped the word 'hello' from the Cheerful Daisies set in VersaMark Ink onto the dark green circle and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Finally, I glued the hearts to the stitched circles and popped them up with circles cut from white fun foam.

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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Picket Fence Dies

12.08.2021

Hi everyone,

today I'm back with a sweet night scene featuring the Picket Fence Dies which I combined with the Missing Ewe Stamps.

First, I started off with ink blending the night sky background using Distress Oxide Inks (Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot). For the stars, I splattered on some Finetec Moon Gold paint. Next, I blended together Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness for the grass. I used the straight Picket Fence grassy border die as well as the curved one from the Slimline Nature Borders Dies set. The fence and woodgrain embossed boards were cut from  Kraft cardstock.

I stamped the sheep in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The word 'ewe' is included in the same die set and I cut it from gold glitter cardstock. To complete my punny phrase, I stamped the sentiment from the Plane Awesome set in VersaMark Ink onto red cardstock strip and white heat embossed it.

Finally, I assembled my card by adhering all pieces with liquid glue as well as some foam tape for the sheep and bottom grass border. I added two red die-cut hearts as a finishing touch.


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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Chloe Alphabet Dies

05.08.2021

Hello everyone,

Alphabet dies are great to create custom sentiments or to personalize your projects. I love the pretty and versatile font of the Chloe Alphabet Dies which I combined with the Just Bee-cause mini stamp set.

I started off with a white top-folding A2 card base and trimmed down a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock to be slightly smaller. I did some fun Ink Smooshing with Distress Oxide Inks (Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold) to create my background.

Next, I die cut the Frilly Frames Hexagon Die from vellum. I cut it apart and carefully adhered it over the ink smooshed background. I stamped three bees and the tiny heart in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.

I spelled out the word 'bee' by die cutting the letters once from black glitter cardstock and twice from regular black cardstock. I stacked them on top of each other for more sturdiness and dimension. The word 'happy' from the Captivating Camellias set was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a black cardstock stripe and I heat embossed it in white.

To finish off my card, I adhered the bees with foam tape and added Crystal Stickles to their wings and the little heart.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Tiki Time

29.07.2021

Hi everyone,

Summer is in full swing and the gorgeous Tiki Time Stamps are just perfect to create a tropical scene with. I adore the hula dancing elephant! I added accessory stamps from two other sets – Fabulous Flamingo (pineapple and watermelon) and Silly Sloths (hibiscus flower and leaves).

First, I ink blended the sunset background with Distress Oxide Inks (Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Dried Marigold) onto Bristol smooth cardstock. For the sand piece, I used Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Gathered Twigs and trimmed it with one of the stitched hillside borders from the Slimline Nature Borders Dies set.

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.

The word 'Aloha' was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a piece of vellum and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I fussy cut it with scissors leaving a border around the letters. Then I cut tiny strips of foam tape which I hid behind the heat embossed word and adhered it to the background. I also white heat embossed the punny sentiment onto the sand hill. Finally, I assembled the whole scene.

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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Cupcake Shape Dies

22.07.2021

Hello everyone,

today I'm sharing a fun shaped birthday card made with the Cupcake Shape Dies. Who wouldn't want to receive a big yummy cupcake like this?!

These dies are so easy to work with! First, I cut out the base from white cardstock. The cupcake pieces were cut from Bristol smooth cardstock, Kraft cardstock and Gingham patterned paper (Gingham Pastels 6x6 Paper).

I went with some sort of Vanilla frosting and blended on a bit of Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. I also added tiny ink splatters with a paint brush. Next, I inked the edges of the cake portion die-cut with Frayed Burlap and splattered on lots of ink to create texture. The die for the wrapper piece creates some fine lines which I enhanced with Copic Markers.

To decorate the cupcake wrapper, I stamped the adorable baking fox from the Woodsy Autumn set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked off the original pie and replaced it with a little cupcake included in the Party Pups set. I colored the image as well as the cherry die-cut with Copics. I fussy cut the fox and applied a thick layer of Glossy Accents to the red part of the cherry to make it look shiny and dimensional.

I die cut the word 'congrats' from the Slimline Scalloped Frame Dies set out of turquoise glitter cardstock and adhered it to the frosting. The birthday sentiment (Sealiously Sweet Stamps) was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto black cardstock strips and I heat embossed it in white. Finally, I popped up the fox with foam tape.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Happy Camper

15.07.2021

Hi everyone,

the sweet retro trailer from the Happy Camper set makes me dream of a little summer vacation somewhere in the middle of nature, maybe at a lake with the mountains in the background. So I came up with this little scene where I added images from the Spring Scenes stamp set and Comic Strip Everyday die-cuts.

First, I cut out a window with the largest of the Stitched Semi-Circle Dies from a white woodgrain cardstock panel. I did some Distress Oxide ink blending on smooth Bristol cardstock to create the sky background (Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo) and the grass (Bundled Sage, Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness) as well. I used the grass border die to trim the top of the green ink blended piece. At the left, I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the trees and mountains. Since I don't have the matching die, I fussy cut the trailer with scissors. I adhered the woodgrain panel with foam tape and arranged the scene inside the window.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Outback Critters

08.07.2021

Hello everyone,

instead of creating an Australia themed card with the Outback Critters Stamps, I thought it would be fun to use the sweet kangaroo image for a birthday. I combined it with the balloon bouquet from the Floating By set.

I started off with a lemon yellow A2 card base and cut the Frilly Frames Retro Petals Dies from white heavyweight cardstock. I left all the petal pieces inside of the die-cut and adhered the whole panel to a piece of fun foam. The white-on-white pattern in the background creates a bit of interest without appearing too busy.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut out the mama kangaroo with her cute baby. For the balloons and strings, I did partial die cutting as well as a little fussy cutting with scissors. I adhered the balloons behind the kangaroo image which I popped up with foam tape.

I cut the word 'happy' included in the Blooming Frame Die set three times from light aqua cardstock. Then I stacked the die-cuts on top of each other to make them more dimensional and sturdy. The word 'birthday' from the Prancing Pegasus stamp set was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a small purple cardstock strip and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Finally, I adhered the sentiment and added two enamel hearts as embellishments.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Poppy Fields

01.07.2021

Hi everyone,

poppies are some of my favorite flowers, so I was excited to create a card with the Poppy Fields Stamps.

I started with an A2 card base and trimmed the gingham patterned paper from the Subtle Grey Tones 6x6 Paper pack to the same size. I then cut one of the Fancy Frames Rectangle Dies from white cardstock and adhered it with foam strips.

Next, I stamped the layered poppies, leaves as well as the tiny ladybug from the Layered Basket set using dye inks (you can find the ink colors below). I used the coordinating dies to cut all the pieces out and arranged them on my card. I added a grass border (Picket Fence Die) at the bottom which I die cut from green grid paper (Gingham Jewel Tones Paper).

I die cut the words 'for you' included in the Gift Card Pocked Die set from black cardstock and double heat embossed them with clear embossing powder for a glossy look. To finish off my card, I adhered three Crystal Clear Jewels.

Dye Inks used:
Poppies: Altenew Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Crimson, Vineyard Berry, Grapevine;
Simon Says Stamp
Stone, Cobblestone
Leaves: Altenew Just Green, Hunter Green
Stems: Altenew Just Green

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Scalloped Fence Dies

24.06.2021

Hello everyone,

mixing and matching products is so much fun! Today, I incorporated the Scalloped Fence Dies into my little fairy scene.

My card is a bit larger than the regular A2 size and measures 5 7/8" x 4 1/2". The patterned paper from the Spring Fling 6x6 Paper pack was the perfect fit for this scene. I die cut the fence pieces from white cardstock and assembled them – love the details and dimension. I also cut the grass border included in the Picket Fence Die set from green cardstock and adhered it at the bottom of the card.

Next, I stamped the sweet Garden Fairy images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies. I adhered the mushroom house and fence flat and popped up the other images with foam tape.

The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink and I heat embossed it with Salvaged Patina Distress Embossing Glaze. Finally, I applied some Crystal Stickles to the fairy wings.


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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Moroccan Circles Embossing Folder

17.06.2021

Hi everyone,

I love to add texture using embossing folders. This time, I stepped it up by dry embossing a Gel Plate printed background.

I started off with a white A2 card base. For my background, I applied Salvaged Patina and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink with a brayer to my Gelly Arts gel printing plate and put a piece of white heavyweight cardstock on top slightly rubbing across with my fingers. I really like the soft blending of these gorgeous colors. I ran it through my die-cutting machine with the Moroccan Circles embossing folder and added small white paint splatters.

Next, I stamped a couple of images from the Pink Peonies set in matching colors and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I adhered them with liquid glue as well as foam tape for a bit of dimension. The 'hello' sentiment (Beach Buddies) was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a white cardstock strip and heat embossed in silver. Finally, I embellished my card with three Snow White Crystals around the floral cluster.


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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Beach Buddies

10.06.2021

Hello everyone,

Summer is here and today's card features the adorable Beach Buddies which I combined with some fun accessories.

I went with a non-ordinary card size (6"w x 4"h) because I wanted to use one of my all-time favorite dies – the Staggered Circle Die which is perfect to pair with cute critters. I cut it from a blue Sleek Stripes Paper as well as from cream cardstock. I inlaid the cream stitched circles into the window openings of the striped paper.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

I picked additional accessories from the following sets:
drink: Tiki Time and Dies
sun: Balloon Rides Stamps and Dies
starfish: Best Fishes and Dies
flip flops: Sealiously Sweet and Dies

The sentiments were stamped in VersaMark Ink onto black cardstock strips and heat embossed in white. I scattered the images and sentiment strips all over my card and added Cornflower Blue Jewels as a finishing touch.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a day full of sunshine!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Candy Shoppe

03.06.2021

Hi everyone,

today I have this literally sweet birthday card for you featuring the fun Candy Shoppe Stamps. All these candy themed images inspired me to come up with a little wagon made from die-cuts.

I used the scalloped dies from the Sweet Treats House Add-On set for the roof and border. I masked off every other scallop and sponged on Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink to create the stripes. For the wheels, I cut the half round window die twice from brown cardstock circles. I also added a piece of pink striped paper (Dots & Stripes Pastels Paper) to a white cardstock rectangle for the wagon's bottom part.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies. Two of the longer striped candy sticks were used to combine the roof and bottom part of the wagon. I adhered the wagon pieces to a light blue card base and arranged all the sweets inside it. For a little bit of sparkle, I applied Crystal Stickles to the right side of the pastel rainbow cotton candy.

I really like the oversized 'Sweet' word which I stamped in Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and triple heat embossed with clear embossing powder for a raised and glossy effect. The matching die is awesome, too! The birthday sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a thin black cardstock strip and heat embossed in white. I finished off the card by rounding the bottom card corners with a punch and adding three white clay hearts.

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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Teacher Appreciation

27.05.2021

Hello everyone,

the school year is coming to an end in a few weeks and I love the idea of creating Thank You cards for teachers, especially during this pandemic. The Teacher Appreciation set is full of wonderful sentiments which will work for other occasions and people as well. I combined it with the Color My World Stamps, one of the cute Beach Buddies and the gorgeous Chloe Alphabet Dies.


I started off with a light aqua A2 card base and die cut a mat from white cardstock using the stitched rectangle included in the Frilly Frames Retro Petals Die set. I stamped five colored pencils using dye inks (you can find the ink colors below) and cut them out with the coordinating die.

With the help of masking, I gave the little bunny some glasses. I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and did some coloring with Copic Markers. I cut him out with the matching die.

Next, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it in silver. I spelled out the word 'thanks' by die cutting the individual letters from shiny rainbow mirror cardstock. I adhered them over the heat embossed sentiment and added a couple of silver paperclips below.

Finally, I popped up the colored pencils and the bunny with foam tape for a bit of dimension.

  Dye Inks used for all pencils:
Wood: MFT In the Buff and Biscotti, Altenew Caramel Toffee

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Stitched Rectangle Dies

20.05.2021

Hi everyone,

I really like to use dies with stitching details, so I think the Stitched Rectangle Dies set is a must-have. I combined them with some sweet Outback Critters Stamps.


First, I created an A2 card base from teal cardstock. Then I die cut the rectangle mats from three shades of turquoise/aqua cardstock and layered them on top of each other. I also die cut a little hill from Kraft cardstock with one of the Slimline Nature Borders Dies. I ran it through with the smallest stitched rectangle die as well for a more finished look.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies. With the help of partial die cutting I shortened the stitched double fishtail banner to fit my punny birthday sentiment which I stamped in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed in white. Finally, I adhered the images and sentiment banner with foam tape.


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