Sunny Studios: Picket Fence Border Die

 Hi there! Kay here today, and I am sharing a card with you that I created with the new Picket Fence Border die. I paired it up with one of my favorite Sunny Studio dies, the Comic Strip Everyday die set. I also used the Slimline Nature Borders diesand the Teacher Appreciation stamp set.

This card is completely made with dies other than the sentiment. I have always loved that look! I used many different colors of cardstocks from my stash and some from my scrap box, so I can't tell you which companies they all came from, but you can create something similar with any cardstocks of your preference.




I first glued down the blue piece for the background and sky. The hills I cut with the Slimline Nature Borders diesand glued them down with liquid glue. I then cut out the picket fenceand added that along the bottom. The grass was then cut and added on along the bottom edge of the fence with foam tape.




I then cut out the little house and trees using the Comic Strip Everyday diesand assembled them with liquid glue and added them to my card with foam tape. The sun and clouds were also added with foam tape. Lastly I heat embossed the sentiment from theTeacher Appreciation Stamp seton a black strip and added that to the bottom of my card with foam tape. 


I hope you have enjoyed my card today and I hope it inspires you with some fun ways to create a scene with the new Picket Fence die!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Gift Card Pocket

 

Hi there!  I have a cute card to share with you today using the new Gift Card Pocket die along with two older stamp sets Timeless Tulips and Daffodil Dreams from Sunny Studio Stamps. I don't know about you, but I've had a lot of graduates to send gift cards to in the past month, so the Gift Card Pocket Die has really come in handy! And because graduation happens in the spring, the Timeless Tulips and Daffodil Dreams stamp sets are perfect for this time of year! 




So for my card, I started by watercoloring a piece of Bristol Board card stock with some green ink. I then speckled it with white ink. When that was dry, I cut the Gift Card Pocket Die out. I then cut the for you out of white card stock twice and added it to the front of the pocket. 




I stamped all of the tulips with Pink Fresh inks using Coral Reef, Passion Fruit and Berrylicious. I stamped the daffodils with Pink Fresh inks using Lemon Whip, Sunshine, Sweet Mustard and Marigold. The leaves and stems were also stamped with Pink Fresh inks using Fresh Pear and Olive.

I then cut all of the flowers out using the Timeless Tulips Coordinating dies and the Daffodil Dreams coordinating dies. Most of the flowers I glued down behind the gift card pocket before adding it with double sided tape. I then added the last tulip on top of the pocket with liquid glue. 


And last but not least I added a Target gift card! Such a fun card and great gift for someone!


I hope you have enjoyed my project today!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Tiki Time

 


Hi there!  I have a card to share with you using the new Tiki Time Stamp set and Tiki Time Coordinating dies from Sunny Studios! This is my favorite stamp set from the new release! I just love tropical things! This set is so much fun!



So for my card, I created the background by watercoloring Peerless watercolors onto Bristol Board cardstock. When this was dry, I speckled with white ink. For the beach sand, I used Antique Linen distress ink and blended this onto white Bristol board cardstock, and then speckled with Vintage Photo mixed with water.



All of the cute images from the Tiki Time stamp set, were colored with Copic markers, then cut them out with the Tiki Time coordinating dies. I then adhered them all to the background beach scene with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment which is included in the Tiki Time stamp setalong the bottom.


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

Sunny Studio: Stitched Rectangle Dies

 Hi there! Kay here and I'm sharing a card I created with some of the fun new products from the brand new release! I'm using the new Stitched Rectangle diesand the adorable Looking Sharp stamp set.




So for my card, I first off stamped all of the images and sentiment from the Looking Sharp stamp setin Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock. I then used a fine line black marker and ruler and drew the line across to give the illusion they are sitting on a table. I then colored everything with Copic markers.




I then cut the colored piece out with the middle sized Stitched Rectangle die. I used some light teal cardstock Aqua Mist from Papertrey Ink and the largest Stitched Rectangle dieto cut a second larger mat. I added the larger blue mat to the cardbase with double sided tape and then added the colored panel on top of this with foam tape. 


I hope you have enjoyed my card today!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.

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.
