CardMaker & Sunny Studio Blog Hop Featuring Holiday Cards


Hello there!  You should be arriving here from Jennie's blog.  For those visiting for the first time, we would love to welcome you!  We are a new company specializing in quality made clear photopolymer stamps and steel dies lovingly made in the USA.  Here's a peek out our debut release... We are planning new releases every three months with our next release due out by early January.  


Today for my project I created a rainbow inspired card using our popular Bundled Up stamp set along with word & snowflake dies from our Santa's Helpers and Snow Kissed die sets.

As I was stamping out the accessories, I thought to myself how cute it would be to make the penguins represent all the colors of the rainbow so I created a card that is 4" x 9" and fits perfectly in a business sized envelope.



For my background I lightly inked it up with some Tumbled Glass distress ink and scattered tiny snowflakes.  For my sentiment I blended the colors of the rainbow using the same Copic markers I had used to color my images and then added some glossy shine over the top using Ranger Glossy Accents (after adhering the words to my card with a Zig glue pen).



In honor of today's hop we are offering 20% off on all orders using the code "CARDMAKER" today through Saturday at Noon PST.  You can find our online store HERE.

We are also giving away a stamp set (of the winner's choosing) to two lucky winners!  You have up to 5 chances to win using the rafflecopter below.  :)

  19. Oh yay, you did a correct rainbow. I am so fussy about the "right" rainbow. You even did a special sized card to fit all the colours in so I'm delighted with you :-) I also love the card, I'm off to shamelessly copy it right away. Thank you!

  39. Love your rainbow card - it's brilliant! I think my favorite set is Bundled Up! because you can choose so many different accessories to change up the penguin's look and the type of card you want. It looks really fun! And I think that's a good idea for other sets: one main character (or two!) with a lot of accessories to go with.

  41. Oh my Mendi... this card is by far the CUTEST card I have ever seen!!! I Love your idea to have the penguins represent the colors of the rainbow.... and this card is adorable for sure! Did i say that yet? LOL
    I love the sentiment and how the colors blend and have that beautiful shine and gloss. Gorgeous card my friend. I am sorry that I was not on the computer during the time of the hop but I am sure hoping that everything went well with the hop and sales!
    Hugs,
