Sunny Saturday Share: Love Themed Cards for Valentine' s Day


Hello there!  I hope you're all have a nice Saturday in your neck of the woods!  Today I'm popping in with a couple of darling customer cards that I spotted on the web this week. 

AJ Bodine has created the most wonderful card using our Happy Home stamp set.  I absolutely love all the fun details she has poured into this card, from the sweet way she colored her house with the brick exterior to the fun fluffy clouds in her background.  I think her color choices are amazing too!  :)

Up next is another super cute card by Lenae at Sugargems.  I am smitten with her Valentine spin on the butterflies from Backyard Bugs. What a fun way to stretch your stamps!  :)

Guest Designer Spotlight: Spring Cards with Suzy Plantamura


I'm so happy to be welcoming a new friend to the blog that I have admired and looked up to since my early days in scrapbooking.  Please welcome the wildly talented Suzy Plantamura!!!  

Take it away Suzy...

Happy Easter Card using A Good Egg Stamp set
Sunny Studio Stamps: A Good Egg Happy Easter Card by Suzy Plantamura.
I painted all the stamped images with watercolors. I added glossy accents to the eggs in the basket and all the eggs in the grass. I added grass borders in three layers so I could tuck some of the eggs under the layers to make them appear as if the little chick was going on an Easter egg hunt. I stamped the Happy Easter in bright pink ink on a stamped banner for the salutation.

Fluttering By Card using Backyard Bugs Stamp set

Sunny Studio Stamps: Backyard Bugs Fluttering By Card by Suzy Plantamura.

To make the background, I painted coral stripes with watercolor. I then stamped the dotted line wavy border on the non-painted stripes to match the stripes, but add a subtle design that added to the theme of the card. I added glimmer to the butterfly and flower with a Wink of Stella pen. All of the stamped images are painted with watercolor. I used pop dots behind the larger mushroom.

A Flower Card with Custom Sentiment by Elise

Hello! It's Elise again to share a card with you this morning that features the Sweet Script stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps! This set is great for helping to create custom sentiments on your cards and projects! Here is the card that I created:


Sunny Studio Stamps: Backyard Bugs & Sweet Script Flower Pot Card by Elise Constable.

I paired the script set with the Backyard Bugs stamp set and die to create a card that is perfect for cheering up a friend! To paper piece the flowers, I used the die cuts to cut a flower from green patterned paper, and then cut another flower from a colorful patterned paper and cut off the stem. I then glued the flower to the green paper! Here is a close up on the flowers:

The flower and pots are also adhered with foam tape. I added some blue paper to my card base, added some twine, and adhered the white panel to the front of the card! 

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you enjoyed the card! :)

Sweet Script I Love You Heart Card with Marion

Hello. It's Marion here with a sweet Valentine's Day card that uses the Sweet Script stamp set and also the Sunny Borders stamp set and coordinating dies. I've also been itching to use the newly released Stitched Heart dies - and they are wonderful!

I started by die cutting a heart from white card stock and then I sponged on some Festive Berries Distress ink. Once dry, I mounted the letters 'Love' (from the Sweet Script stamp set) onto an acrylic block and then stamped it repeatedly in Hero Arts Raspberry Jam ink. I also darkened the edges of the heart with the same ink. I mounted the heart onto the card with some mounting foam. The banner was stamped and die cut and I generated my own "I Love You" sentiment from the Sweet Script stamp set. I added a little bit of shading onto the banner with Copic markers.

The heart is covered in a layer of clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen. I love the subtle shimmer.

Sweet Script "You Have My Heart" Card with Heidi

Hello everybody, Heidi here! Today I am sharing a very fun Valentine's card featuring custom made sentiment using the Sweet Script stamp set, images from the adorable Sending My Love stamp set, and the Stitched Hearts die set.

I think it's so important to have alphabet stamp sets to customize not only sentiments but also to personalize gifts and cards. The "Sweet Script" stamp set is very easy to use and has both upper and lowercase letters, a real must have.


Sunny Studio You Have My Heart Valentine's Day Card by Heidi Criswell (using Stitched Heart Dies, Sweet Script & Sending My Love Stamps).

For this card I stamped and colored the little puppy from the Sending My Love stamp set, then I inked a piece of 5.50 by 4.25 inch cardstock using "distress inks" and them I spritzed them with some water to create some splatters. I cut a white front panel and used the medium size heart from the Stitched Hearts die set to cut a window to set the little puppy.

Sunny Studio You Have My Heart Valentine's Day Card by Heidi Criswell (using Stitched Heart Dies, Sweet Script & Sending My Love Stamps).

I heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of velum using gold embossing powder and I also cut some hearts from inked paper and embossed paper using the heart dies from the "Sending my love" stamp set. 

The stamps and dies are available for purchase at the Sunny Studio Shop.  I hope you enjoyed this card.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a lovely day!

A Good Egg Easter Chick Card with Melissa

Hello everyone, Melissa here! Today I have a card to share using three of the newly released stamp sets. Sweet Script, A Good Egg and Sunny Borders

To make this card I first die-cut a stitched rectangle out of white cardstock and used a light brown ink to lightly blend the outside edge. I laid the chick, eggs and paint bucket from A Good Egg out on the rectangle where I wanted them and stamped and masked them, starting with the chick in the foreground until the scene was complete. I then colored them in using Copic Markers. 

Sunny Studio Stamps Easter Chick Card by Melissa Bowden (using Sweet Script, Sunny Borders Banner & A Good Egg)

For the sentiment I used the “Happy” from A Good Egg and made the word “Easter” using the Sweet Script stamp set. I stamped those inside of the banner from Sunny Borders onto patterned paper and fussy cut them out. I then stuck that onto the top on the card above the little scene. To finish the card I mounted it onto a scalloped rectangle border. 


I hope you enjoyed the card for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello there!  Today I'm popping in with some Valentine's Day cards created by our customers using our new Sending My Love stamp set and coordinating dies.

Up first is a darling pop-up card by Lenae (you can follow her on instagram at: sugargems).  I adore the happy little scene she created with the mail box and letters and the little ladybug from Backyard Bugs!  Such a bright and happy card, right?  :)

Backyard Bugs What's Buzzin? Bumblebee Card with Francine

Hi everyone!  This is Francine.

Today, I’m featuring the Backyard Bugs stamps. What an amazing set! Here is the card I made:   

Sunny Studio Stamps CAS Bumblebee card by Francine Vuilleme (using Backyard Bugs stamp set)


OMG…. this cute little bee… It was love at first sight! I decided to focus on that image and this is why I created a scene for my bee. I first sponged the background with Distress inks (Tumbled Glass and Broken China). Next, I stamped the bee and the hearts in black ink. I colored and fussy cut them. I also die-cut a cloudy border from white cardstock.

To finish off my card, I stamped the fun “What’s buzzin’?” sentiment on a speech bubble and I adhered everything together with foam dots. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Backyard Bugs Fluttering By To Say Hi Butterfly Card with Elise

Hi everyone! It's Elise here to share a card with you that features the Backyard Bugs stamps and dies from Sunny Studio Stamp! If you can't tell, the butterfly stamp is my favorite, so I created a card to showcase how cute it is!


Sunny Studio Stamps:  Fluttering By To Say Hi Card by Elise Constable (using Backyard Bugs and Sunny Borders Stamp sets)

I stamped the butterfly onto some patterned paper and die cut two butterflies from each paper. I attached one of the butterflies to the card base and the top butterfly is only attached in the middle so that I could fold the wing to make it more three dimensional. Here is a close up to show you the two layers:

I stamped the sentiment inside of the banner from Sunny Borders stamp and die cut it with the coordinating die.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop by again tomorrow from some more inspiration featuring the Backyard Bugs set!  :)

Backyard Bugs Hello Toadstool House with Marion

Hello! It's Marion here sharing two cards with you today. They are the same card, but I stepped up the second card and made it into a shaker card. Both cards use the newly released Backyard Bugs stamp set. The sentiment is from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set (also a new stamp set).

To start with, I partially diecut a circle (leaving the bottom section uncut). Next, I stamped the house and the flowers. I then took my pointy scissors and cut around the house and flowers, leaving the window. The images were coloured with Copic Markers and the grass was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I sponged on some Salty Ocean distress ink onto the card base, and then popped up the front panel onto the card base with mounting foam.

Now to be honest, these cards were a labour of love! It took me about 5 tries to get it right, but I am glad that I persisted.


Sunny Sentiments Stamps Backyard Bugs Toadstool House Window card by Marion Vagg.

The second card uses exactly the same process as the first, except I adhered a piece acetate to the back of the front panel and created a well with the mounting foam to house the sequins.

Backyard Bugs Lovebug Card with Heidi

Hello everybody!  It's Heidi here and I'm so happy to be back at the Sunny Studio Stamps blog!  We have an amazing new release. Today I am sharing a card featuring the new Backyard Bugs Stamp and coordinated die set.   There are so many cute images to combine for creating adorable cards for Spring time and all year 'round occasions.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Backyard Bugs Love bug Ladybug card by Heidi Criswell.
For this card I used a circle stencil for the background, which I inked with a soft bluish green ink. I stamped, colored and die cut the flowers, the mushroom and the lady bugs. I also used the banner from the "Sunny Borders" stamp set, which I colored using purple Copic Markers. 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Backyard Bugs Love bug Ladybug card by Heidi Criswell.

I stamped the "you are my" sentiment from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set and then stamped the words "love bug" using the Sweet Script stamp set.  This is a very easy to use alphabet set.  I really like the font--it's a must have for customized sentiments. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  We would love to see what you create using our stamps and dies!  Have a lovely day!

Backyard Bugs Home Is Where The Heart Is Card by Melissa

Hello everyone, Melissa here!  Today I have a card to share using another one of the newly released stamp sets, Backyard Bugs. This set has a bunch of cute little bugs to make the sweetest outdoor springtime scenes . I absolutely LOVE it! 


Sunny Studio: Home Is Where The Heart Is Mushroom House Card by Melissa Bowden (using Backyard Bugs & Happy Home stamps)

To make this card I first die cut a stitched rectangle out of white card and used a light brown ink to lightly blend the outside edge. After that I stamped the sentiment which is from the Happy Home stamp set. I wanted to do this first so I knew exactly how much room I had to fit my scene. 

I then stamped and masked off the flowers, mushroom and lady bug before stamping the mushroom house. I also free-handed a little path leading up to the house with a Copic multi-liner. I then removed all of the masks and colored the images with Copic markers. To create the striped paper for the card base I used a stencil and some red distress ink.

I hope you enjoyed the card for today and that you love this stamp set as much as I do! Don’t forget to check back for more inspiration!

Rain or Shine: You Make Me Happy Card with Elise

Good morning! It's Elise again to share a colorful card with you that features the Rain or Shine stamp set and dies!

I was so excited about the rainbow and cloud stamps in this set, and I knew they would be perfect for a cheery, colorful card!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Rain or Shine You Make Me Happy Rainbow Card by Elise Constable.

The images are all colored with Prismacolor pencils and attached with foam tape. I used a smiley face stamp from another set that I had in my stash, but the face could easily be drawn on the cloud with a black marker. I also added some stickles to the edge of the clouds and the hearts for some extra detail. Here is a close up on those adorable clouds!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Rain or Shine You Make Me Happy Rainbow Card by Elise Constable.

This set is so cute and its perfect for making sunny, spring cards! I can't wait to send this card to a friend to brighten their day!

Thanks for stopping by and stop by again tomorrow for some more inspiration! :)

Rain or Shine: Let's Weather It Together Card by Marion

Hi there. It's Marion here with another card using the Rain or Shine stamp set. Isn't this puppy just the sweetest thing?


Sunny Studio Stamps: Rain or Shine Let's Weather It Together Card by Marion Vagg.

I created the background with my new Kuretake water colour paints onto some Tim Holtz water colour paper.  I thought it created the perfect background for the cute doggy image from the set which I coloured with Copic markers. I popped up the images with some foam dimensionals.

Rain or Shine Sending Sunshine Rainbow Card by Mendi

Hello there!  Today the team is showcasing ways to use the Rain or Shine stamp set and I have a fun Rainbow card that I created pairing sentiments from the complimentary Sunny Sentiments stamp set.


Sunny Studio Stamps Sending Sunshine Rainbow Card by Mendi (using Rain or Shine and Sunny Sentiments)

I colored my image in with Copic markers.  I used a pale B0000 to color in shade the bottom of my clouds and then popped them up with foam tape to add some interest.  I then added a little clear glossy accents over my hearts to give them some shine.  

For my sentiment I gently bent the stamp on my block to have it follow the curve of my rainbow.  Love how clear stamps can be shaped like this!  :)

I hope I've managed to spread a little sunshine your way today.  Make sure to check back to see all the darling ideas the team has up their sleeve this week!  :)

Rain or Shine Let's Weather It Together Card with Melissa

Hello everyone, Melissa here! I am super excited to share a card with you today featuring the newly released stamp set Rain or Shine! This set is so much fun! 

Sunny Studio Stamps Rain or Shine Rainy Day Let's Weather It Together Card by Melissa Bowden.

Like a lot of my cards, this is one layer so required quite a bit of masking. I first stamped the dog holding his umbrella, then masked them off and stamped the grassy border from Sunny Sentiments. Once that was done I masked off the grass area with masking paper and inked up the sky using a variety of blue inks. I then used a darker blue to stamp the raindrops. I then removed the mask from the grass and stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the card and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. 

To add the color to the grass I masked off the sky and inked it up using several green inks. Next I colored both the dog and his umbrella using distress inks. To finish the card I stuck the scene onto a scalloped card base.
