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
Metal Piece: SSS Fog, Lawn Fawn Manatee
Eraser: Altenew Cotton Candy and Coral Berry

Pencils (Altenew Dye Inks):

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.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Happy Hamsters

13.05.2021

Hello everyone,

it's no secret that I really love creating cards with cute critters and today I'm showcasing the Happy Hamsters Stamps.

I started off with a light aqua A2 card base and trimmed down the yellow stars patterned paper from the Rainbow Bright Paper pack. For the top part, I blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink in circular motions on a Bristol cardstock panel. I adhered both pieces to the card base and added a thin grey paper strip.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies and used liquid glue as well as foam tape to adhere them. Finally, I stamped the motion lines and punny sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Gift Card Pocket Die

06.05.2021

Hi everyone,

today I'm sharing a colorful summer-themed card with a special feature. Instead of hiding the gift card at the inside of the card, I incorporated the Gift Card Pocket Die into the front card design.

First, I started off with a white A2 card base and trimmed down the striped paper from the Summer Splash Paper pack to the same size. I cut the medium Stitched Rectangle Die from ocean blue cardstock and also created a little wave border for the bottom using one of the Catch A Wave Dies

Next, I die cut the gift card pocket out of pink shell patterned paper, folded the flaps backwards and adhered it to the blue rectangle panel. I decorated the gift card pocket with some sweet Beach Buddies Stamps which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to out the images. 

I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it in white. The scripty word 'Summer' (which I fussy cut) and the edge of the wave border were heat embossed with sparkly WOW! The Real Teal embossing glitter.

Finally, I assembled my card using liquid glue and foam tape for a bit of dimension and added three Crystal Clear Jewels that almost look like water droplets.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Looking Sharp

29.04.2021

Hello everyone,

the new Looking Sharp stamp set features cacti and succulent plants which are even cuter with smiley faces and little accessoires. I created a birthday card with three of them.


I started off with a white A2 landscape card base and trimmed a piece of Bristol cardstock to be slightly smaller. For my warm sunset background, I blended together the Distress Oxide Inks Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold and Crackling Campfire. I used one of the Winter Scenes Dies to create a ground for my plants to stand on. The earthy ink colors are Antique Linen, Gathered Twig and Walnut Stain. For some texture, I added ink splatters with a paint brush. When it was completely dry, I stamped the punny sentiment in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it in white.

I remembered the hanging light strings from the Scenic Route set and thought they were a great addition to my little birthday scene. All images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and I colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

Finally, I assembled my card by adhering the background and lights with liquid glue and popping up the ground and plant images with foam tape.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Slimline Pennant Dies

08.04.2021

Hello everyone,

today I'm featuring the versatile Slimline Pennant Dies which can be used in many ways and of course they work with A2 standard size cards as well. I adore the Balloon Rides Stamps and added patterned papers to the background.


First, I cut out the diamonds pattern from the Subtle Grey Tones Paper pack with the stitched rectangle mat die included in the Frilly Frames Quatrefoil Dies set and adhered it to my A2 top-folding card base.

The cloudy paper (Summer Splash Paper) was die cut with the second largest pennant. To create a reverse banner piece I additionally used one of the Fishtail Banner Dies and cut off the top from the green floral pennant (Spring Fling Paper).

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 from the Lovable Llama set was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a black cardstock strip and I heat embossed in white.

Finally, I assembled my card by adhering all elements with liquid glue and foam tape.

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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Lovable Llama

01.04.2021

Hi everyone,

I always need to create birthday cards for my stash! The Lovable Llama with its party hat and stack of gifts is just perfect for this occasion. I went with bright colors as well as black and white to make them pop even more.

I started off with a white card base and trimmed the black patterned paper (Heroic Halftones Paper) about 1/8 inch smaller. Next, I die cut the pierced scalloped border from the Slimline Pennants Dies set from aqua, yellow and pink cardstock. I layered the die-cuts on top of each other to build a colorful and decorative element.

I also cut the largest of the Scalloped Circle Mat 1 Dies from white cardstock and stamped the tiny confetti-like images in matching colors. The llama, hat and gifts were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and I colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images which I adhered with foam tape.

Finally, I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Inside Greetings Birthday set in VersaMark Ink onto a black cardstock strip and heat embossed in white.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Scalloped Circle Mat Dies

25.03.2021

Hello everyone,

I have a cute CAS slimline card for you today featuring the Scalloped Circle Mat 1 Dies. The little critters that went on top of each patterned paper die-cut are from the Balloon Rides stamp set.

First, I created a white card base which is a bit taller than the stitched mat die from the Slimline Scalloped Frame Dies set. At the top half of the stitched panel, I blended a pastel rainbow using Distress Oxide Inks (Dusty Concord + Milled Lavender, Kitsch Flamingo + Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Mowed Lawn + Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass).

Next, I die cut five matching scalloped circles from polka dot paper (Dots & Stripes Pastels Paper) and adhered them to my ink blended background. I stamped the critters in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Finally, I die cut the word 'congrats' from holographic cardstock and added silver star sequins to finish off my card.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Eggs To Dye For

18.03.2021

Hi everyone,

today I'm sharing another Easter card made with the Eggs To Dye For Stamps. This time I used the sweet bunny and chick included in the set and created a Spring wreath out of die-cuts.


I started off with a light pink top-folding card base. Next, I ran a white cardstock panel through my die cutting machine with the Dapper Diamonds Embossing Folder.

I stamped the critters in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a white cardstock circle and I heat embossed it with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

For the wreath, I cut the loopy Snowflake Circle Frame Die from Kraft cardstock. The flowers and leaves dies are from the Botanical Backdrop Die set and I cut them from several cardstock scraps. Finally, I assembled my card and adhered three pink clay hearts.


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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Stitched Circle Dies

11.03.2021

Hello everyone,

today I'm sharing a colorful birthday card. I used the versatile Stitched Cirlce Large Dies to create a happy rainbow for the Prancing Pegasus.


I started off with an A2 card base and cut out the purple Classic Sunburst Paper with the stitched rectangle die included in the Frilly Frames Quatrefoil Dies set. I left all the stitched circle dies attached (as they come from the manufacturer) and ran them through my die cutting machine with some Bristol cardstock. I cut them in half to create the rainbow pieces which I watercolored with Karin Brushmarkers.

For the clouds, I used a speech bubble die from the Comic Speech Bubbles Die set. I colored the pegasus with the Karin Brushmarkers as well and cut it out with the coordinating die. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a black cardstock banner and heat embossed in white.

I adhered the rainbow and sentiment banner with liquid glue and popped up the clouds and pegasus with foam tape. Finally, I added Iridescent Pearls and a tiny star sequin as embellishments.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Layered Basket

04.03.2021

Hi everyone,

Easter is only one month away, so I created a card for this occasion with the Layered Basket Stamps. Of course I filled the basket with a bunch of colorful Easter eggs using the Eggs To Dye For Stamps.

I started off with a light grey A2 card base and die cut the diagonal striped background (Frilly Frames Stripes Dies) along with the stitched rectangle (Frilly Frames Retro Petals Dies) out of white cardstock.

Next, I stamped the layers of the basket and eggs with dye inks (you can find the ink colors below) and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Feeling Froggy

25.02.2021

Hello everyone,

today I'm featuring the Feeling Froggy mini stamp set and I decided to create a masculine CAS card. I combined the frog and dragonfly with the cattails and water lily from the Country Scenes set.

I started off with a topfolding A2 card base and trimmed a white cardstock panel to the same size. I cut out a window using the second largest of the Stitched Semi-Circle Dies. To add some texture, I debossed the panel using the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder.

Instead of my usual Distress Oxide ink blending, I tried something different for the background. I cut green, aqua and blue cardstock strips to the same width and adhered them behind the window. It's a great way to use up some scraps and it still matches my pond scene. I popped up the debossed panel with foam tape.

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 sentiment was stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink onto a white fishtail banner. Finally, I adhered everything with liquid glue and foam squares.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • My Otter Half

18.02.2021

Hi everyone,

today I'm back with another love-themed card featuring the cute My Otter Half Stamps. I love how they are holding paws!

First, I created a square card base measuring 5.5" x 5.5". I also trimmed a white cardstock panel to the same size and created a window by cutting out the largest of the Stitched Heart Dies.

For my little scene, I stamped the pond and the water lily from the Country Scenes set. I also used the slightly curved line from the Winter Scenes set to separate the grass from the sky background. I did some masking and ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks to create the water (Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire), grass (Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness) and purple sky (Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord).

I colored the otters, water lily, cattails and pond border (all images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink) with Copic Markers. The solid heart trio is included in the Meow & Furever set and I stamped it with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

I combined one of the Banner Basics with a punny sentiment and the 'otter' word die that comes with the coordinating My Otter Half Dies. I die cut it from purple glitter cardstock. Finally, I assembled the scene using liquid glue and adhered the heart window panel as well as the sentiment banner with foam tape.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Captivating Camellias

04.02.2021

Hi everyone,

today's card features the Captivating Camellias layering stamps and I was inspired by the 2021 Pantone Colors of the Year – a beautiful combo of grey and yellow.


First, I created a more narrow card base out of grey cardstock which measures 4.125" x 6.25". I trimmed a white cardstock panel to be slightly smaller and adhered it to the card base. Next, I used one of the Slimline Pennants Dies and cut it from polka dot paper included in the Subtle Grey Tones 6x6 Paper pack.

I stamped all the layers of the camellias and leaves with dye inks (you can find the ink colors below) and the help of a stamp positioning tool. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and build a cluster which I adhered onto the banner. For a little dimension, I adhered the large flower with foam tape.

For the sentiment, I die cut the scripty word 'hello' from the Slimline Scalloped Frame Dies set out of silver glitter cardstock. I also stamped the word 'friend' (Foxy Christmas Stamps) in VersaMark Ink onto a small grey cardstock strip and heat embossed it in white. I finished off the card by adding three yellow glitter enamel dots.

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. The clouds were stamped in Faded Jeans to match the sky background.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Balloon Rides

21.01.2021

Hi everyone,

I enjoy creating little scenes and the new Balloon Rides Stamps are just perfect for sweet everyday cards. I especially love the cute sun and that you can choose which critter to put into the basket of the hot air balloon.

I started with a light sky background by blending together the Distress Oxide Inks Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar. When it was completely dry, I added lots of tiny splatters with a paint brush.

Next, I die cut two grassy hills using the stitched border dies from the Slimline Nature Borders Dies set. I sponged on Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink and layered the hills on top of each other.

The images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and I colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink onto a pink cardstock strip and white heat embossed it. Finally, I assembled my scene and adhered two matching Pink & Purple Heart Confetti clay embellishments.
