Polar Playmates Let's Chill Card with Lexa

Hi everyone! It's Lexa here today with a card that highlighting the brand new Polar Playmates Stamp and the coordinating dies. I use these winter friends for a non-holiday card, as they are so adorable. This little scene is one of the examples you can try. Make sure to put your pre-orders in now!

First, I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolored them with Distress Markers and a wet brush. The brown husky is inspired by my old buddy who's a brown Siberian Husky as well. Both the seal and the husky are chilling out together while they go fishing ... taking turns, I hope. I blended some Distress Inks for the background - Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord. I stamped the snowflakes in various sizes with purple dye ink on the sky along with the snow falling using a white gel pen. Don't you think these both guys look so cute together? I'm also happy with the color combination for this card. Here's a closer look:

2nd Birthday Blog Hop with Holiday Sneak Peeks & Prizes


Hello & welcome to a very special post today.  I am thrilled and humbled to have reached our second birthday milestone this month!  To celebrate we are hosting a fun blog hop with some of our favorite designers who are sharing sneak peeks of our holiday release coming out next Friday. 

For my part of the hop, I am sharing five different ways to use our new Fireplace dies which come with everything you need to create a fun A2 sized shaped fireplace card! 

Card No. 1:  For my first card I wanted to create a traditional brick fireplace reminiscent of grandma's house.  I inked up three swatches of white cardstock using Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey & Ripe Persimmon distress inks.  I then die-cut the bricks using the four brick pieces that come with the set and adhered them with a glue pen in a random pattern.  For my mantel, I cut it from some wood print patterned paper and cut the trim from metallic gold cardstock.

While this set comes with some die-cut stockings, I thought I would mix things up by using the stocking stamp from our Christmas Icons set and the kitty warming himself from our Furever Friends stamps.  I then used a Copic multiliner pen to write the names of our family on the stockings.

Card No. 2: Next up I have a card where I used those same brick dies along with an embossing pad to emboss the bricks into the background of my fireplace piece, giving it a nice subtle detail.  I heat embossed my sentiment in white using a phrase from our Heartfelt Wishes set and a kitty from Pet Sympathy.  

For this card I thought it would be fun to do something totally different so instead of stockings, I used the wreath image from our Christmas Icons set, along with a metallic pipe cleaner to form my garland behind the wreaths.  I'm in love with the results!

Card No. 3: For this card I went more modern with the look of my fireplace, cutting the background from silver shimmer cardstock and topping it with what I like to think of as white subway tile.  I channeled my inner Barbie girl and inked my stockings using Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron distress inks.  I stamped my sentiment on the mantel using a phrase from our Gleeful Reindeer set.  A puppy from our Santa's Helpers and a gift from Christmas Icons complete my scene.

Card No. 4: Up next is another somewhat modern take with a black and white fireplace. It's difficult to see in my photo, but my background was embossed with the bricks in the same method I used for my second card.  To embellish my card I turned to the kitty in the stocking image from our Santa's Helpers set.

Card No. 5: My last card shows a third way to use the bricks for the fireplace by cutting a random brick pattern from the front panel and layering another solid panel behind it.  For these I used some scraps of solid distressed patterned papers that were a bit thinner than my other cardstocks so they actually benefited from the extra thickness.  I embellished my die-cut stockings with some stitched lines using my multiliner pen and added candy canes from our new Playful Polar Bears set.  I finished my card with a banner that perfectly hugs the fireplace from our Sunny Borders set and a sentiment from our new Christmas Home set.

Here's a look at the full die set which will begin shipping on Friday, September 29th.  The fireplace mantel scores along the top making it easy to cut two to form your card base and to adhere them together along the top.

Autumn Greetings Owl In A Pumpkin Card with Vanessa

Hi everyone! Vanessa here with an autumn card mixing new stamps with older ones. I love to color with colored pencils on kraft cardstock and think that it is a perfect match for fall themed projects.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Autumn Greetings Owl In A Pumpkin Card by Vanessa Menhorn

I first trimmed my cardstock panel slightly smaller than the card base and stamped the images from Happy Owl-o-weenHarvest Happiness and Woodsy Creatures with a light brown ink. Then I colored everything with my Prismacolor pencils. After I had stamped the sentiment from Autumn Greetings, I adhered the panel to the card.

This could easily be made into a one layer card, but the dark card base gives it a nice contrast, don't you think?

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you'll be back tomorrow for our big blog hop! Don't want to spoil anything, but there will be peeks at the new stamps!

Barnyard Buddies and Missing Ewe Shadow Box Card with Amy

Hello everyone! Amy here today with a shadow box card that uses the Barnyard Buddies and Missing Ewe stamp sets. These farm animal images are some of the sweetest and the cutest I've ever seen! It's a fun set for sure.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Barnyard Buddies and Missing Ewe Shadow Box Card by Amy Yang

For today's card, I used extra images that I stamped and colored (with copics) from my previous projects. I didn't want it to go to waste, so I made a box card for them. Box cards are great for creating dimensional scenes, and they fold flat for easy shipping.

I used the smaller Stitched Scallop dies to die-cut green patterned paper for the front of the card as shown. I made the hills inside the box with the wavy die from Oceans Of Joy using the same patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink, applied white embossing powder, and heat set it.

To finish, I adhered all the images to the box card. Thank you for stopping by the blog, and happy crafting!

Happy Owl-o-ween Trio Of Costumed Owls Card with Nancy

Hi everyone, it's Nancy here. The spookiest time of the year is quickly approaching! Let’s get ready to send some handmade goodness with the Happy Owl-o-Ween stamp set. Who can resist cute owls in costume? This not-so-spooky card will be sure to delight.


Sunny Studio Stamps: Happy Owl-o-ween Trio Of Costumed Owls Card by Nancy Damiano

I created this card on a watercolor paper background with a wash of Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn and Citron. This gives the card a punch of bold color and a nice background for the punched images to stand out on. Each of the stamped images were colored with Distress Ink and layered to create different costume dress ups. Using the coordinating dies is key in saving time to create different looks easily. The sentiment was stamped in orange and black ink at the top right with a sprinkle of sequins added for a fun touch.

Putting together the images from the Happy Owl-0-Ween stamp set is like playing paper dolls. I love all of the costume possibilities, making this set equally versatile and fun!

Cute As A Button Rainbow Card and Video with Eloise

Hi everyone, Eloise here and today I'm sharing a card using the Cute As A Button stamp set and coordinating dies to create a rainbow background of buttons and also the Fresh and Fruity set for the sentiment.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Cute As A Button Rainbow Card and Video by Eloise Blue

To start my card I pulled a piece of white cardstock and a ton of Altenew layering ink sets. I'm using these inks since I need a lot of colours and they're super easy as they come in sets already. I then stamped down 12 buttons with their layers and die cut them out using the coordinating dies

I decided to take my buttons one step further so I used some grey thread and stitched in a cross in each button, it would have been better if I had white thread, but I didn't have any that was thick enough, so grey worked just fine. Once I stitched through all 12 buttons, I went ahead and but foam tape onto the backs of each of them.

I then adhered them all down in a grid pattern onto my white card base, then white heat embossed a thank you sentiment from the Fresh and Fruity set onto some black cardstock. I cut it down into a small strip, adhered it to my card and it was complete. 

Super easy rainbow card today using these fun Cute As A Button stamps! If you want to watch the video I made on it, it's linked down below. 


Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll catch you all next time.
