Sunny Studio Grand Opening Blog Hop!


Hello & welcome to the Sunny Studio Grand Opening Blog Hop!  I'm so happy you're here!  For those of you who haven't heard, we are a brand new company offering high quality photopolymer stamps and matching dies made right here in the USA.  I designed the stamps myself and I couldn't be more excited to be sharing them with all of you today!

My first card features the School Time stamp set which is one of my personal favorites!  I colored each of the stars with Copic markers and then added some sparkle using a clear Wink of Stella pen and some glossy accents over the top.



My next card uses the Happy Home stamp set.  I wanted to give my home a warm feel so I colored the windows in with a yellow marker to make them glow and contrasted it with cool greys for the shadows of my Colonial home.  For my trees I colored them like I would for the daytime and then I went over them all with a dark grey marker, adding more intense shadows where they would be tucked behind the house.

I inked up my background using Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distess inks and then added stars using Golden Rod Stickles.  I love the results!  :)



My last card was created using a free digital stamp I am offering you all today, featuring seasonal variations of the tree found in the Happy Home set.  DOWNLOAD HERE


I would love to see the projects you create with it!  You can share all your Sunny Studio projects to our Flickr group page HERE.



I have been receiving some questions about how the new fishtail banner dies work so I also threw together a quick little tutorial on them.  Please bear with me... This was my first video attempt so it's far from perfect (you can watch it at YouTube HERE).  ;)
