Sunny Studio Stamps - Blink's Christmas presents

Hi everyone!

My dog Blink has some really close friends that she had to give some Christmas presents. So I decided to make some small bags with dog treats and create some cute Christmas dog tags to go with them.

I used the Stitched Arch Dies from Sunny Studio Stamps for the base of my tags. This die set also has a separate little hole die so that you can die cut it wherever you want it in your tags, to pull the twine through. This adorable doggie was a special edition from Sunny Studio this year: Dashing Dachshund.

The patterned paper and sentiments are from Lawn Fawn.

The presents were a success, so I guess we will have to come up with something again next year ;)

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Sunny Studio Stamps - miscellaneous cards

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with a lot of love and great food. Today I'm back with some cards that I've made with Sunny Studio Stamps.

This cutie is made with the adorable Passionate Penguins stamp set.

For the next card I combined the Plane Awesome and Critters on the Go stamp sets and the Picket Fence die set.

For this underwater scene I used the Tropical Scenes, Ocean View and Fintastic Friends stamp sets.

This puppy birthday party is made with the Party Pups stamps and the Picket Fence die set.

The last card I made with the Cherry Blossoms layering stamps and for the background I used the Woodgrain embossing folder.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Christmas Card Update

Hi everyone!

These last 2 months of the year are always so chaotic, the very little free time I have I spend on creating cards and updating my blog is not really happening. So, I decided to show the rest of the Christmas cards that I have made here in one blog post. In between I also made a few other cards, like birthdays, but I will leave those for a separate post.

The first 4 cards are all made with Sunny Studio Stamps. For the first one I created a reel, so you can see how I made it.

The next 2 cards I made with some adorable stamp sets from Newton's Nook Designs.

These 3 cards were made during the online class 'Snowball Fight' by Jenn Shurkus, with all Lawn Fawn products. If you're not familiar with her classes, you should definitely go check them out. She teaches in person classes and online classes. Since I live nowhere close to where she teaches in person, I'm so thankful for her online classes! It's in the comfort of my own home and still feel like I'm hanging out with like-minded people. Every time I learn something new and she gives me a different perspective on how to use my stamps.

Then we have a shaker card that I made with Mama Elephant stamps.

The next 2 cards are made with Purple Onion Designs stamps, by Stacey Yakula.

This card I made with Studio Light, Sweet Stories stamps.

The next card is made with Tim Holtz products.

And the last card is made with an adorable stamp from Unity Stamp Co, by Graciellie Design.

I do need a little break from making Christmas cards, but sometime in January I'll start making them again. I love to join in Get Cracking On Christmas, an initiative by Jenn Shurkus, where you're encouraged to make Christmas cards all year long to take the pressure of the last couple months of the year. I've been doing this for 2 years now and I love it!

Thank you for stopping by and I want to wish you a wonderful Christmas!!

Sunny Studio Stamps - May the Little Things...

Hi everyone!

Today's card just makes me smile every time I look at it. The Penguin Party stamp set from this year's Holiday release from Sunny Studio Stamps is probably my favorite set. These cuties are having a blast, each in their own way.

To start my scene, I ink blended the Forest Trees stencils with Distress Inks Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry at the top of my card. Then I stamped the houses of the Scenic Route set on another piece of cardstock, fussy cut it along the top and placed it on top of the pink trees with foam squares to create some dimension.

I added some snowy slopes in front of the houses, created little scenes with the penguins and tucked some presents and candy canes in between the slopes.

For an extra festive detail, I added glitter to some of the images.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

My Favorite Things - Card Design Superstar 2022

Hi everyone!

Very last minute I decided to create two cards for the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar 2022 contest. You can enter one card per category, so I made one for the Coloring Virtuoso category and one for the Clean & Simple Genius category.

I'm starting here with my card for the Coloring Virtuoso category. I used the BB Drink Up the Sunshine stamp set and stamped the girl with her floatie and the bird in their position. After I colored both of them, I masked them so I could create my scene around them. I started with the ocean and beach, which I drew and colored with Copic markers. Then I masked the ocean as well and ink blended my sky with Distress Inks.

Below is my card for the Clean & Simple Genius category and the contrast with the card above couldn't be any bigger. I used some masking on this card as well to create my small scene with the Sun-Lovin' Santa stamp set. To make my scene a little more festive, I added some glitter on the ground so that the whole scene has something 'to stand on'.

Thank you for stopping by tooday!
