Sunny Studio Stamps: You're Flamazing

 Hi there!  I'm sharing a card today using the new Stitched Circle Small dies. Along with the Stitched Circle Small dies, I used one of my very favorite Sunny Studio Stamp sets, Fabulous Flamingos stamp setand the Fabulous Flamingos dies. As you can tell by my card today, I am ready for some warmer temperatures! 


To start off, I blended some Broken China and Cracked Pistachio distress inks onto Bristol board cardstock, then speckled with water and blotted it dry. I then used the Stitched Circle Small dies to cut a circle out. I mounted this onto my white card panel with foam tape. 



I then stamped all of the cute little images from the Fabulous Flamingos stamp setcolored them with Copic markers and then cut them out with the Fabulous Flamingos dies. I adhered these all to the Stitched circle with foam tape and then stamped the sentiment below with black ink.


I hope you have enjoyed my card today!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Greetery: A Warm Hello

 Hello all! I hope you have had a wonderful week so far. I have a card to share with you today using some pretty Spring products from The Greetery! I love mixing and matching stamp sets and dies from different releases. It's always fun to see what you can come up with using some of the older stamp sets with new things!

Today I'm using the pretty heart wreath from the Love is stamp set, the Love is die, Printshop Floral Frame stamp set, Printshop Floral Frame dies, Put a Bow on it stamps, Put a Bow on it dies, Robin & Wren stamps, Robin & Wren dies and Cotton Comforts stamp set.



For the background, I blended some Broken China and Mowed Lawn distress inks and then speckled with Vintage Photo mixed with water.  I stamped all of the beautiful images and cut them out with the coordinating dies.


I added the wreath first with foam tape and then the bow. I tucked the flowers in behind the bow using liquid adhesive. I then added the sentiment and the sweet little wren with foam tape. The sentiment is from the Cotton Comforts stamp set. I used a die from the Sentiment Suite dies to cut it out.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

Kay :)

Sunny Studio: My Otter Half

 Hi there! Kay here and I have a super fun card to share with you today using the adorable new My Otter Half stamp setMy Otter Half coordinating diesand Country Scenes stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps.



For this card, I first stamped the pond and cattails scene about midway on my white cardbase, then I stamped the tree line and hills just above that. I colored the entire card with Copic markers, and blended the sky with just a bit of Broken China Distress ink. After all of the coloring was finished, I speckled a little blue ink on the water and some darker green ink onto the hills above.



I colored the adorable little otters and the extra cattails with Copic markers, cut them out with the
 My Otter Half dies, and added them to the card with foam tape. The sentiment is included in the My Otter Half stamp set, and I stamped it on black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I cut this out and added it to my card with foam tape. 


I hope you have enjoyed my card today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Greetery: Spring Fever Collection Day 1

 Hello and welcome to the first day of reveals for the brand new Spring Fever Collection from The Greetery! If you are as ready for Spring as I am, you will love this gorgeous collection of florals and fun designs for Easter! This beautiful new collection of stamps and dies will be available at The Greetery on Wednesday, Wednesday March 10th at 10:00 am EST!

Today we are showcasing: 

  • Bunny Hop stamp, stencils, die
  • BotaniCuts Carrot die
  • Put a Bow On It stamp + die
  • BotaniCuts Wildflower Mix die
  • PreText Sentiments + dies
  • Let’s Have a Word: Easter die
  • Let's Have a Word: Spring Die





For my first card, I'm using the Bunny Hop Stencils, Stamps and Dies combo. I only used the stamps on my card here and then cut the whole wreath out with the coordinating die. I then stamped the bunnies and two different shades of brown, cut them out with the coordinating dies, and added them to the wreath with foam tape.




I did use the stencil for the wreath to blend some blue ink around the outside and lightly inside of the wreath. I then stamped the cute sentiment that is included in the set with the same brown as the bunnies.


***




My next card uses the new Botanicuts: Wildflowers Mix dies and the Put A Bow on it Stamp set and coordinating die. I cut all of the flowers out of heavy weight white cardstock and colored them with Distress Oxide inks. I then glued them all together with the stems. I blended some purple ink onto my white card base for a subtle background and then arranged the flowers into a bunch and glued them down with liquid adhesive. I added a few white dots to the center of my flowers with white acrylic paint.




I stamped the Bow and sentiment from the Put a Bow on It stamp set, cut it out with the coordinating die, and added it to the bunch of flowers with foam tape.


***



My last card uses the Botanicuts: Carrot die set, Let's Have a Word: Easter die, Botanicuts: Wildflower Mix dies and the Greetings sentiment is from the Bittersweet Bouquet stamp set. I first blended some Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink for my background and then speckled it with white ink. I cut all of the dies out of heavy weight cardstock and colored them with Distress Oxide inks.




I glued everything together and then to my panel with liquid glue. I cut the Easter sentiment out three times and layered those all together and then adhered them with liquid glue as well. The Greetings sentiment was heat embossed on dark brown cardstock, cut out and adhered with foam tape. I added a few white dots to the center of my flowers with white acrylic paint.


I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects today! I'll be back tomorrow with more wonderful projects with the new Spring Fever Collection!

Sunny Studio: Lovable Llama

 Hi there! I'm up on the Sunny Studio blog today sharing a cute card I made with the new Lovable Llama stamp set and coordinating dies! This will probably be my last winter card for the year, as I am officially ready for spring here ( after more than a week of subzero temps)  but I had to put this adorable little llama in a winter setting because he lives  way up in the Andean mountains in the snow. I also chose the sentiment from the Balloon Rides stamp set, sending smiles across the miles, because the Andean Mountains are kind of far away... at least from where I am anyway. 



For the background on my card,  I lightly stenciled some clouds. I used the clouds die from the Slimline Nature Borders dies to create my stencil and blended Salty Ocean Distress inks onto my cardstock over the stencil. I then splattered the background with white ink.  I cut the two snowy hills using the Slimline Nature Borders also and blended some Salty Ocean Distress ink onto those as well to create a little depth in the snow.



All of the cute images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added to my card with foam tape. The snowy trees are from theWinter Scenes stamp set and the sentiment at the bottom is from the Balloon Rides stamp set. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have enjoyed my card! Stay warm if it's still chilly where you live!

Kay :)
