Holiday Release Update & Sneak Peek

Hello there friends!  I'm sad to say I've made the decision to push back our inspiration week and holiday release by one week due to receiving a late shipment of some of the new products.  I'm super bummed, but in the end I decided I would feel better having everything in hand before kicking the week off.  ;) 

However I promised you some peeks this week so I've put together a little collage of some of the projects I've been working on that I will now be sharing starting next Monday with a release date of October 7th.  


I hope you will join us for all the fun & festivities.  In the meantime, the team is sharing some amazing ideas for fall using our Harvest Happiness set this week.  Please scroll down to see Eloise's gorgeous card for the day.  :)

Big Hugs!


Harvest Happiness Layered Pumpkins Card with Eloise

Hello everyone, Eloise here and I'm back with a card featuring the Harvest Happiness set. I knew when I got this set I knew I wanted to stack the pumpkins up so that's what I'm doing for the card today.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Harvest Happiness Autumn Blessings Fall Pumpkin Card by Eloise Blue

To begin my card today I needed to make a ton of masks. So I took some masking paper and stamped down 4 of each pumpkin and a few leaves from the Harvest Happiness set I fussy cut them out to the line and then I could start stamping. I used some Versafine Onyx black ink to stamp down my leaves first, using the masks in between as needed. Once I had the layer of those at the bottom of the cardstock, I could stamp out my pumpkins - doing the same thing as I did for the leaves. Once I had finished stamping I used clear embossing powder so when I watercolour it can be faster and easier.

For the watercolouring today I'm using the Kuretake Gansai Watercolours. I used autumn-y colours and I also coloured the background too, to make it look complete.

To finish up my card I used a stitched rectangle die to die cut the panel down and to flatten it out, I then stamped down the 'autumn blessings' sentiment with some black ink also. I then popped it up on fun foam and mounted it onto a green card base and that finished up my card.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and make sure you check by the blog this week to see more inspiration using this stamp set.

Autumn Splendor Grateful For You Card By Lexa

Hello crafty friends! 

It's Lexa here, today I'm going to share a card featuring Autumn Splendor stamp and coordinating dies. This set is so pretty with all the leaves, berries and acorns which are perfect for all your fall projects. I love fall colors!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Fall Owl Card by Lexa Levana (using Autumn Splendor, Harvest Happiness & Woodsy Creatures)

I start my card with a piece of 4.25" x 5.5" watercolor paper, stamping all the leaves with Distress Inks (Candied Apple, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo) and then I applied some water to all of them. As a last touch I splattered the same ink colors, which I think looks really cool. :)

After I finished my background, I layer a piece of vellum in 4" x 5.25" to soften the tone. The trick I learned for this stamp set is I prefer to die cut first then stamp all the images. I think it's easier that way, as I did with the berries and leaves. I use the cute owl from Harvest Happiness to stand on the wood log from Woodsy Creatures as the main piece of my card.

I stamped them with Versafine black ink and watercolored them with Distress Markers. After I finished all my elements, I arrange them all together and they look so pretty. Mixing your stamp sets always can give you a fresh look, and yes I know when it's easier to match all the pieces that come from the same set, but it's worth a try. I heat emboss the sentiment with copper embossing powder to match all the color tones together.

I hope you like my card for today, thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Autumn Splendor & Woodsy Creatures Fall Card with Vanessa

Hey everybody!! Vanessa here with a card combining the cute hedgehogs from Woodsy Creatures with the gorgeous Autumn Splendor set. 


Sunny Studio Stamps: Autumn Splendor & Woodsy Creatures Hedgehog Fall Card by Vanessa Menhorn.

First, I stamped the leaves from Autumn Splendor with Distress Inks onto a panel of watercolor paper. Then I applied water over the stamped images until I was satisfied with the result. I added spritzes of gold, brown and red ink, let the panel dry and adhered it to my card base. Now I trimmed a panel of Kraft cardstock to fit the card, die-cut a rectangle from it and stamped/heat-embossed the sentiment. After I had adhered the frame, I stamped the images, colored them with Copics, die-cut them with the matching dies and adhered them with foam tape.

I love that the Autumn Splendor set is so versatile! You can easily create clean and graphic designs, as well as a bit messier ones with Distress Inks! I hope you liked today's card! Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Splendor Fall Wreath Thank You Card with Lindsey

Hi! Lindsey here today sharing a card using the fun leaf layering set Autumn Splendor. I chose to do a fun wreath design using some fall colors, so let's get started on how I created this card.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Autumn Splendor Fall Leaves Thank You Card by Lindsey Sams.

To begin, I cut a medium sized stitched rectangle from white cardstock. This is the paper I did my stamping on. Before I began stamping, I traced the outline of an oval to give me a guide while stamping my leaves. I chose some reds, oranges, and yellows for the leaf colors. I thought those autumn colors would make a beautiful wreath. Because I knew that some of the leaves would overlap, I started with the darkest color first and worked my way to the lightest color. Then I used the little branch stamp to add a little more pizzazz to the wreath. 

I stamped my sentiment in the middle of the wreath using one of the orange inks. As a final touch, I added some highlights with a white gel pen. Once that stamped panel was finished, I simply double mounted the white rectangle with an orange and red piece of cardstock. That does it for this card.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Autumn Splendor Fall Leaves Thank You Card by Lindsey Sams.

This card was a lot of fun to make. I had not had much experience with layering stamps, but they are not as challenging as I had thought. I hope you'll give this set a try, and I can't wait to see what you create! Have a great day.

Autumn Splendor: Birthday Wishes by Anni

Hey stampers, Anni here.

I had some leaves left over from this card. I often keep stamped images that I didn't use on a project. But to be honest I don't use them a lot.  This time I stored the stamped images with the stamp set (by the way it is the set Autumn Splendor). And obviously that was a good idea because when I grabbed the set I was inspired by the already stamped leaves.

To achieve the varying colors  I inked up the stamps and added ink in a different color with a Q-tip. The leaf-veins I embossed with copper embossing powder. I am totally in love with copper right now! I then die cut the leaves with the coordinating dies.

To add a little more copper to my card I created a nest of thread and adhered it to my cardbase with some glue dots. 

The sentiment I got from the set Sweet Shoppe. I embossed it in white on a piece of brown cardstock.

I assembled the card and added some sequins and enamel dots. For the finishing touch I made some blots of gold shimmer paint.

So what about you? Do you keep your stamped (and maybe already colored) images and use them later? Let me know, I'm curious.

Thanks for stopping by and have a sunny week.
Anni
