Guest Designer Spotlight: Cards with Leanne West

Hi everyone! Leanne West here today and I am very happy to be back with another guest blog post. I’ve been playing with many of the products from the Fall Release and absolutely loving them!! I have to say fall themed stamps are my favorite but what struck me the most about the new sets was that they don’t necessarily have to be used for making fall themed cards. I’m sharing four cards today that demonstrate my point. 

I’ve used Copic markers to color all the images and the coordinating dies to cut them out. A white gel pen was used to add some highlight detail. My go-to for scene backgrounds is ink blending on Bristol Smooth card stock. To help frame up the these scenes I’ve used the Fancy Frames Rectangle Dies and Fancy Frame Circle Dies. All four of my cards are standard A2 size. 

These first two cards feature the Happy Harvest stamp set and coordinating dies. I just love the tree image and made it the focal point on both cards. One is definitely for fall and the other is a thank you card for any time of year.

For the "Autumn Blessings" card I used colors and images indicative of fall. I’ve colored the bottom hill border in a warm shade of green and the leaves on the tree are a mix of green, orange, and yellow. I decided to use the pumpkins and crows to up the fall factor of the scene but really there are so many options within this one stamp set to make many different fall scenes. And I just love that there’s a open space in the tree image to stamp a smiley face.

For the "Heartfelt Thanks" card I used brighter colors for the sky background and a cool shade of green for the hill border. I made the tree an apple tree and turned the crows into bluebirds . For the space in the center of the tree I stamped the heart image that’s included in the set. It looks like the heart is carved right into the tree trunk. I think apples can be for anytime of the year and for anyone. This would be a great teacher thank you card too! 

The next two cards feature the Home Sweet Gnome stamp set and coordinating dies. Once again this set could be used to make fall cards or anytime cards depending on the mix of images and colors used.

For the "What’s Up Gnomie" card I colored the images in “fallish” colors and used some wood grain pattern paper from the new Amazing Argyle 6x6 paper pack. The gnomes and mushrooms are so fun to color and the sky’s the limit with color choices. That’s what makes this stamp set so versatile! As you can see with my next card it has a very different vibe even though I’ve still used a gnome and mushrooms as the focal points.

For this last card I wanted to created a scene with a more summery feel. Switching up the colors to very bright pinks, yellows, greens, and blues helped accomplish that. I used some Classic Gingham 6x6 patterned paper in a coordinating pink to complete the look. 

I also wanted to note - for both of my Gnome cards I used a die from the new Woodland Borders die set to get those perfect rolling hills. 

I can’t say enough great things about these two new stamp sets I’ve used on today’s cards. They are must haves for sure! Thank you for joining me today and big thank you to Mendi for inviting me back. Until next time ;) happy stamping!

Fall Kiddos Friendship Slider Card With Lexa

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a slider card featuring the brand new products from Sunny Studio. You must be agree with me that this release is amazing. So many innovative dies and wide range of adorable stamps. One of my favorite is Fall Kiddos, this stamp set also works so well with other ones as you gonna see in today's card.

With Sliding Window Dies you can create interactive cards in an easy way. It has extra tag dies inside the set too. First, I stamped all of the images with Versafine black ink and watercolored them with Distress Markers. After finished with the coloring I cut each image with the coordinating dies. A little tip from me - you will need the tree dies from Happy Harvest stamp set just because you want to make your life easier. LOL. The coordinating dies cut very detailed, getting every little space in between the branches. 

I used the brand new Preppy Prints and Amazing Argyle paper pad to show you how amazing this patterned papers from Sunny Studio are. Love the bright and subtle colors, and of course, the quality is perfect. Plus they coordinate so well together, you don't have to think much then.

Here's the closer look if you pull out the tab, it'll show you a hidden message. I especially love the wood grain patterned paper, so beautiful.

As if there are not enough surprises, you can create another one on top part of the card. This sweet little girl is popping up to say hello with sunflowers beside her.

Nutty For You Gnome Treat Container with Vanessa

Hello everybody! Vanessa here today with a little treat container using several of the wonderful new stamps, dies and papers. I love the colors of fall, and the pretty new paper pads make it easy to create beautiful projects for this season!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Nutty For You Home Sweet Gnome Treat Container by Vanessa Menhorn

I first created the little container from one sheet of the Preppy Prints 6x6 Paper Pad, simply by joining two opposite edges of the sheet to create a tube, then closing the bottom and the top in opposite directions. After I had tied-on the ribbon, I die-cut the Nutty For You elements from brown cardstock and from woodgrain patterned paper from the Amazing Argyle 6x6 Paper Pad, assembled the pieces and adhered the acorn to the box. Now I created the bow from rustic twine and tied it to the die-cut.

I stamped the cute gnome from Home Sweet Gnome onto white cardstock, colored it with Copics, die-cut it with the matching die and adhered it to the acorn with foam tape.

Finally, I die-cut the banner from Fancy Frames Rectangle, stamped the sentiment from Christmas Icons and tucked the banner behind the acorn.

I hope you agree that this release is marvelous! I can't stop playing with the cute new products! Thank you for stopping by today!

Beautiful Autumn Falling Acorns and Leaves Card with Franci

Hi there, Franci here with you today! I'm so super excited about this new release. Mendi designed so many beautiful products and I'm having the best time with them! Today I am showcasing the Beautiful Autumn mini set and I have to tell this is one of my favorites. It's a mini set so the price point is super good, there are lots of images and it has coordinating dies (that are available separately). 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Beautiful Autumn Falling Acorns and Leaves Autumn Themed Card by Franci Vignoli

I love these images, the foliage is beautiful and the acorn is soo cute! I love acorns, and I find this mini one so adorable. Also included in the set is a mini face you can stamp onto it to make it extra sweet! It's brilliant to have the little face apart from the acorn stamp so you can easily go for different styles every time.

To create my card I first stamped, colored and die cut all of the Beautiful Autumn images. Then I created my card base out of some white cardstock and blended some Spiced Marmelade Distress ink from the bottom left corner up. I also created some little splatters with the same color, a little bit of water and a fine tip brush.

I let everything dry, stamped my sentiment (which I love!) in black, and adhered all of the images down with lots of foam tape. I cut the images to clean the edges of my card et voilĂ ! A super simple and pretty autumn card.

Right now it's so super hot here in Italy, so I love that these new products make me dream about the new upcoming season and bring the magic of fall all over my craft desk! Be sure to check all the new stuff and stay tuned for lots and lots of inspiration, can't wait to create more with this mini set and with my fave of all time: the Nutty For You set!

Happy Thoughts Rainbow Heart Happy Card with Juliana

Hello friends! It's Juliana Michaels here to share a happy little card I created using the brand new Happy Thoughts stamp set, along with some other fun products from Sunny Studio including their new Preppy Prints 6x6 paper pad!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Happy Thoughts Stitched Heart Rainbow Heart Happy Card by Juliana Michaels

I began by die cutting a heart from a piece of white cardstock using the medium heart from the Stitched Heart dies. Using the Happy Thoughts stamp set, I stamped the sentiment with blue ink. I then embossed this piece with a polka dot embossing folder to add a bit of texture.

Next, I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Preppy Prints 6x6 paper pad and adhered it behind the die cut heart. I then wrapped a piece of jute around this piece and tied a bow. To complete the card front, I adhered everything to a piece of blue cardstock.

This card came together quickly, thanks to the Happy Thoughts stamp set. This set is perfect for creating just about any happy sentiment you might need for a card. I also love that it has such a bright and cheerful feel to it, thanks to the patterned paper from the Preppy Prints 6x6 paper pad. In fact, any of the new 6x6 paper pads just released would work great for this card design! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed this happy bit of inspiration using some of the products from the new Sunny Studio Stamps Fall Release!

Fruit Cocktail Embossed Background Birthday Card with Eloise

Hi everyone, Eloise here and today I'm sharing a card using the brand new Fruit Cocktail stamp set. I hope you are all loving the new release as much as I am! This is the newest layering set and Mendi did a great job. I love these layering fruits, they're super fun and unique! 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Fruit Cocktail Fancy Frames Rectangle Embossed Background Birthday Card by Eloise Blue

To begin my card today, I started off with stamping my images out. I used various colours of Altenew Inks to stamp them out. One trick I always like to do is to stamp out my main image first, then die cut it out and then proceed to stamp the leaves/stems separately so they line up correctly. Once my images were stamped and cut, I set them off to the side to work on the background. I took a Woven Embossing Folder from WRMK and ran it through my Big Shot Machine, while I had my die cutting machine out I also used some kraft cardstock and the Fancy Frames Rectangles Dies and die cut the smallest rectangle. 

(Inks Used: Peach Perfect, Caramel Toffee, Paper Bag / Rouge, Crimson, Velvet / Bamboo, Parrot, Olive / Mocha / Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen)

Sunny Studio Stamps: Fruit Cocktail Fancy Frames Rectangle Embossed Background Birthday Card by Eloise Blue

Now that all my elements were ready, I just quickly blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink onto the middle of my embossed white background. Then I added foam tape onto the backs of all my images and adhered them into place. Then I adhered the frame around it. Now, since I used all the fruit I didn't want the sentiment to be specific to any of them, so I just white heat embossed the 'Have A Great Birthday' sentiment onto a thin strip of black adhesive and adhered that into place as well. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and you're loving this new layering set as much as I am. Make sure to keep coming back to the blog to see lots of new inspiration for the new release and I'll catch you next week!
