Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Bursting Hearts Die


Hi everyone,

I'm back with another love themed card using the Bursting Hearts Die. There's so much you can do with this wonderful A2 sized backdrop. I decided to create a monochromatic card with a cute Passionate Penguins couple in the center.

First, I die cut the backdrop from lavender and purple cardstock. I adhered the lavender panel to a white card base using liquid glue. Next, I inlaid some of the purple heart die-cuts into two of the circular rows. and covered the center with a white stitched circle.

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the penguins with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut out the image. I paper pieced the envelope by stamping the image again onto a piece of patterned paper from the Rainbow Bright Paper pack. I fussy cut it with scissors and adhered it over the first image.

The sentiment from the Critters on the Go set was stamped in VersaMark Ink onto a small black cardstock strip. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and adhered it to the envelope. Finally, I popped up the image with foam tape.

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

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Heart Shaped Dies


Hello everyone,

today I'm sharing a spring themed card where I used the versatile heart shaped dies from the latest release. I love that the Scalloped Heart Dies and Stitched Heart 2 Dies can be layered together.

First, I covered the card base with one of the Flirty Flowers Papers. I die cut the largest scalloped heart from coral cardstock and the stitched heart from white cardstock. To create the background for my scene, I did some masking and ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks (Tumbled Glass, Mowed Lawn, Shabby Shutters). I layered the hearts on top of each other and adhered them to the center of the card.

Next, I stamped the sweet images from the Bunnyville set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The sentiment from the Paris Afternoon set was stamped in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Salvaged Patina Distress Embossing Glaze. I fussy cut it out with scissors.

Finally, I adhered the images and sentiment with foam tape. The cute bunny sitting on the carrot just makes me smile.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Spring Release • Lovey Dovey


Hi everyone,

the new Spring Release went live last Friday and it is jam-packed with totally adorable stamps and fabulous dies!

For my first card I used the Lovey Dovey set which comes with beautiful large love-themed sentiments. I picked the precious 'I love you to the moon and back' one and created a night scene around it.

First, I started off with the background and trimmed down a piece of white cardstock to a regular A2 size. I used the smallest of the Tim Holtz Moon Masks and created a radiant blend around the circle using Distress Oxide Inks (Salvaged Patina, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot). I also added the moon texture with the stencil and a light touch of Pumice Stone ink. I let everything dry completely before stamping the sentiment inside the moon with VersaMark Ink. To create a shiny, translucent look I used Salvaged Patina Distress Embossing Glaze to heat emboss the sentiment.

Next, I die cut the Cityscape Border from black cardstock to mimic house silhouettes in the dark of the night. I also hand cut some yellow paper to go behind it for the tiny enlightened windows. For the ground I trimmed down a dark grey cardstock strip and adhered it as well as the cityscape to my ink blended background.

I fell in love with the new Passionate Penguins Stamps the first time I saw them – they are sooo cute! Of course I had to use them on my card ;-) I stamped the penguins in the car with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and did some Copic coloring. The image was die cut with the coordinating die and popped up using foam tape. Finally, I die cut three little hearts from pink cardstock and covered them with Glossy Accents.

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

MFT January Release • Love To My Gnomies


Happy Sunday,

The MFT January Release Countdown has already begun and I thought I'd share the details on my DT Announcement card today. The new products will be available on Tuesday, January 11th.

I combined the Giant Love Die-namics with the sweet Love To My Gnomies stamp set. First, I did some Inlaid Die Cutting. The pretty striped paper is from the Festive Celebrations Paper Pad – I adore these colors! I die cut the word 'Love' from it and adhered the negative part to my card base. I also die cut the letters from white cardstock and inlaid them into the patterned paper.

Next, I stamped the two gnomes in Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and colored them with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. They fit perfectly onto the large die cut letters. Finally, I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink onto black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut it into two strips and lined one up at the top and the other on the bottom of the word 'Love'.

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