Bold Balloons Framed Birthday Celebration Card with Lexa

Hi everybody! How is your day? Lexa here with a card featuring the Bold Balloons stamp set and it's coordinating dies. This layering stamps from Sunny Studio has become so popular among crafters. Have you tried it yourself? Because I'm in looove with this technique. It's super easy and saves a lot of time, plus they turn out so gorgeous.

I started my card with a piece of 4.25"x4.25" because I wanted to use the brand new Fancy Frames Square Dies for this card. The balloons are hand stamped with some dye inks in blue, green and purple. First I stamped the blue one, and then I masked the balloon each time as I stamped the other ones. I choose the cooler color tone for this card, that's why I also used some grey for the frame, balloon's strings and the sparkles behind the balloons. They come from  Born To Sparkle stamp set, what a cool effect for background!

Some confetti are also stamped with the same darker dye inks as the balloons add more festive feel to this card. Last but not least, I stamp the sentiment on top of the card and finished it with the grey fancy frame adhered with foam tapes.

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today. I hope you enjoy today's post and get inspired. Have a wonderful day to you and your loved ones!

Tiny Dancers Pretty Purple Happy Birthday Ballerina Card with Vanessa

Hello everyone! Vanessa here with a card using Tiny Dancers. I was so glad when I got this adorable set, having a little ballerina at home! Here comes my first card playing with this set.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Tiny Dancers Pretty Purple Happy Birthday Ballerina Card by Vanessa Menhorn

I first inked the middle portion of my card front with purple ink and added ink splatters. Now I die-cut my circle frame using the Fancy Frames Circle dies and adhered it with foam tape. I stamped all the images, colored them with Copics, die-cut them with the coordinating dies and adhered them, using foam tape to pop up the dancer.

Then I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of purple cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the card. Finally, I added matching sequins.

I hope you like this dancer as much as I do! I know this cute set will be used often in our home! Thank you for stopping by!

Cascading Hearts Mini Circle Home Tweet Home Card with Franci

Hi there! Franci here with you today with a mini shaped card featuring the new Cascading Hearts stamp set and lots more!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Cascading Hearts Mini Circle Home Tweet Home Card by Franci Vignoli

First I die cut my circle and created a coordinated card base. Then I sponged some distress ink to create my sky and put it aside to dry. I stamped some images from the A Bird's Life stamp set and a little kitty from the new Purrfect Birthday stamp set with a black Copic friendly ink. I colored them with Copics and die cut them with the coordinating A Bird's Life dies and Purrfect Birthday dies.

I stamped my background with a soft blue ink, love the effect in real life ... those hearts are so precious! I glued down all the elements and stamped the sentiment with the same black ink used before. Finally, I added some sequins and some details with a white gel pen and the Wink of Stella clear. 

Hope you like it! I love creating mini cards so much. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Team Player Baseball Themed Birthday Card with Nancy

Happy Tuesday Sunny fans! Nancy here today with a sports themed card for all of your ball playing fanatics. The Team Player stamp set includes so many versatile images for a range of sports. I love how the trophy can be customized for coaches' cards and even for Father's Day. I created a baseball themed birthday card for a special little boy in my life.

The bold background was created with an ink blending technique using Distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple and Salty Ocean. The stamped images were colored with Copic Markers for a bold punch of color. The trophy was popped up with foam tape for a bit of lift. The sentiment was stamped in red and black underlining the images.

Keep the Team Player stamp set in mind the next time you think of the sports fan in your life! Football, soccer, basketball, baseball and volleyball are all included along with a huge selection of custom sentiments.

Breakfast Puns Better Together Card with Eloise

Hi everyone, Eloise here and today I'll be using the brand new Breakfast Puns stamp set along with the Fancy Frames Squares to create a simple love themed card.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Breakfast Puns Better Together Card by Eloise Blue

To begin my card I first stamped my images out from the Breakfast Puns stamp set with some black ink, then Copic coloured all my images in. I had an absolute blast colouring these little breakfast foods/drinks in, they were so much fun! Once I coloured them all in, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Next, I took a frame from the Fancy Frames Square die set, which is an exclusive die set to the Sunny Studio Stamps store so make sure you pick it up - it's amazing! And I cut out four frames from some white cardstock. I then cut four squares out also to fit underneath the square frames also.

Next up, I coloured each of the four squares with some Twisted Citron Distress Ink and splattered each with a bit of water. Then adhered the frame on top of each square using foam tape. Next, I arranged all four squares onto my card base and decided that I wanted to make them adhered in a diamond shape on the panel, so I went ahead and adhered them down in a diamond pattern. Then I adhered on all my little characters with some more foam tape, joining them in pairs. I didn't necessarily adhere them in pairs that they were supposed to go with, some I just liked better together. 

Once they were all adhered down, I stamped the sentiment 'We're Butter Together' onto a green strip of cardstock, but replaced the u with the e so it reads 'We're Better Together' since it made more sense with all the images I used. Lastly, I adhered my panel onto a blue card base and my card was complete.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I'm loving the new release and I hope you are too!

Inspiration Week: Introducing Team Player & Rain Showers Stamps

Today's the big day!  Yay!  But before you rush off to shop, we have one last set of sneak peeks, a special discount code and another giveaway...  Today I'm showcasing our new Team Player Stamps & Dies and a fun little 2x3 background stamp set called Rain Showers.

Card No. 1: For my first card I wanted to showcase all the different sports and balls from the set.  The baseball can double as a tennis ball depending on how you color it and whether you chose to include the separate stitching.  I kept everything really simple with some light inking on my background using tumbled glass distress ink, followed by a handful of stars from the set.  The black and white striped patterned paper felt like the perfect finishing touch.  :)

This set comes with 9 unique sentiments and has been designed for ultimate flexibility.  I wanted it to work for thank you cards for coaches, cards to encourage your favorite athletes, father's day cards and even birthday cards for the sports enthusiast.  I have kept the two little faces separate so you can chose whether you want to add the personality to your projects or keep them more plain.

Card No. 2:  Up next is a birthday card for the baseball lover in your life.  I inked up my background with Colorbox Sky Dye Ink after masking it off using dies from our Rain or Shine and Sunny Sentiments sets. I love that by having the baseball stitches separate that you can not only expand the versatility of the ball, but that you can also stamp the stitches in red for a extra touch of realism. I couldn't resist the urge of adding a "manly" scalloped edge with the baseballs.  ;)

Card No. 3:  For my next card I used that same birthday sentiment, this time switching out the words "home run" for "slam dunk".  To create the look of the basketball bouncing, I used the stamp from our Froggy Friends stamps.  For the bottom half of my card I stamped the largest star using VersaMark ink which I heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I then stamp the smaller star in orange to fill in the space around them.  I like the subtle pattern and how it matches the orange of my basketball.

Card No. 4:  Up next is a grid style card that I thought would make a great Father's Day card pairing the ribbon with the football images and a sentiment borrowed from our Stars & Stripes stamps.  The award ribbon and trophy have both been designed so you can stamp the smaller companion words on them so that you can interchange what they say.

Card No. 5:  Up next is a card that is perfect for a coach.  I think you could easily switch out the ball to make this design work for football or baseball.  I cut the grass using the border from our Sunny Sentiments stamps and then added texture by flicking on large strokes of color using my Copic markers.  To create my sentiment I paired some of the words from this set with the word "thank you" from our Autumn Splendor stamps.

The rainy background uses our new 2x3 Rain Showers background stamps which I stamped using a pale blue pigment ink and then heat embossed with Stampendous Kaleidoscope  embossing powder for a glittery shimmer.  When I was done, I used my Fiskars SureCut paper trimmer to cut a square from the center of my panel, which I framed using our Fancy Frame square dies.  I then popped up the entire piece with a piece of craft foam which gives the scene a fun sense of dimension in person.

Card No. 6: For my next card showcasing our new Rain Showers stamps, I wanted to give the look that the umbrella is stopping the rain beneath it, so I masked off a portion of my card panel which was the same width as the umbrella and then repeatedly stamped my raindrops in VersaMark ink which was then heat embossed with powder blue pearl embossing powder.  It creates such a fun shine in person!

To embellish my card I stamped the clouds from Sunny Sentiments and Rain or Shine using Colorbox Mermaid Dye Ink and then stamped the dog from Rain or Shine in a pale tan ink before trying my hand at "no line" coloring with my Copic Markers.  At the advice of Kristina Werner, I stamped an extra dog to have on the side to refer to and then started by coloring in reverse so to speak.  I first colored my shadows and then filled in my image with the lighter colors so I still had a bit of an outline to keep things straight.  I really enjoyed it and I love the results so I'm hoping to try it again soon.  As I final finishing touch, I used a Sharpie White Paint Marker to add shine to the dog's eyes, nose and boots, as well as a polka-dot pattern for my umbrella.

Card No. 7: For my last card of the day I wanted to try a third look for the Rain Shower background stamps so I started by blending distress inks for my background and then when it was completely dry, I heat embossed the raindrop using VersaMark ink with white embossing powder.  I embellished my card with another no line image using that same umbrella from the Rain or Shine set and a sentiment from Color Me Happy.  As a final finishing touch I inked up scraps of cardstock in those same distress ink colors and die-cut small hearts from them using one of the smaller hearts from our Stitched Hearts dies to form my little border.

I'm so happy you've joined me this week for all the sneak peeks and I'd love to give one last $25 gift code to a lucky winner.  If you're just joining us, there's still time to enter the giveaways from earlier in the week.  The contests run through Saturday at Midnight PST with winners announced here on Sunday, January 14th. :)
