Daffodil Dreams and Vintage Jar Card + Video with Emily

Hi everyone, Emily here. I have wanted to make this video since the release of Daffodil Dreams and Vintage Jar. These layered sets are absolutely stunning and I wanted to share how easy it is to use them. Simply use the number guides printed on the stamp set itself, or follow along using the stamp guide provided on the store site.

Since I really wanted the daffodils to stand out (yes, I know they're not really pink but perhaps someday there will be pink ones), I kept the rest of the card simple. I only sponged around the white linen panel to highlight the burlap wrap.

This card has many parts to it, but was extremely easy to make. I would love to receive a card like this myself so I think I will find it hard to give away. ;) The little burlap wrap and white hemp cord around the jar has such a huge impact and complements the stamped flowers so nicely!

Sun Ray Dies Rainbow Background Card with Eloise

Hi everyone. Eloise here and today I'm using the Sun Ray dies to create a fun rainbow background. Along with the Sun Ray dies, I'm also using the Friends & Family stamp set and Friends & Family Word dies for my sentiment also.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Sun Ray Dies Rainbow Background Card by Eloise Blue

To begin my card today I die cut a ton of the Sun Rays out of some watercolour cardstock. I then pulled lots of Distress Ink colours and ink blended them all with different colours and arranged them in rainbow order. Once they were all coloured, I went ahead and added adhesive to a scrap piece of paper and adhered them all done in the order I wanted. I then trimmed down the edges and any excess paper sticking out on the sides. I then added some fun foam on the back and adhered it to the card base.

For the sentiment I die cut out the 'Friends' word die from the Friends & Family Word dies from some black cardstock and black fun foam and adhered them together, then onto my card. For the sentiment, it came from the Friends & Family stamp set and I stamped down the 'are better than therapy' in black ink underneath. For a finishing touch I added some Wink of Stella in the clear to the 'Friends' word.

That finishes up my card for today. These Sun Ray dies have so many uses, I just wanted to try and use them a little differently today.

Stop back by the blog the rest of the week for more inspiration!

Guest Designer Spotlight: Cards with Melissa Bickford

I'm so excited to welcome Melissa Bickford to the blog today as our special guest. She has some gorgeous cards that you are going to just love! 

Happy Saturday, stamping friends! Melissa here with you today and I’m super excited to be guesting for Sunny Studio Stamps and sharing a little something using there oh so colorful stamp sets! When I first saw Color Me Happy and Friends & Family, it was love at first sight. I love flowers and love color and I knew I was going to have a hard time putting them down once I started creating with them. You can’t help but smile and be happy when you ink them up!

I have two cards to share today. One for each of the sets I mentioned above. Let’s start with Friends & Family first.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Friends & Family and Color Me Happy cards by Melissa Bickford.

To begin, I trimmed a piece of white card-stock to measure 3.75 x 5” for my images to sit on. Next came the flowers ... those were all stamped towards the left side of my card-stock in various colors of ink. I stamped ‘forever’ as part of my sentiment and die cut ‘friends’, using the coordinating Friends & Family Flower dies and Friends & Family Word dies and adhered that above it. To add just a little dimension to my card, I die cut a few of the flowers and leaves, stamped them, and then attached them among the rest of my flowers.

Before attaching my floral panel to my card base, I added two strips of pink card-stock along the bottom. I added dimensional foam behind my floral panel and then attached it all to my card base. And lastly, I added lots of sparkle and shine by adding sequins.

Card #2 features the super fun Color Me Happy stamp set. I went with bright colors for this card and used the Sun Ray dies to create my design. After die cutting all of my circles, I stamped them each with one of the heart images in the stamp set. After attaching them all to my card base, I moved onto my sentiment. That was created using the Color Word die and one of the many sentiments from the set.

And to finish it off, I added more sparkly sequins around my sentiment!


Thank you so much for visiting with us today. I’m so happy that I got to share my love for these sets. I hope you enjoyed and hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

Color Me Happy Rainy Day Rainbow Card with Lexa

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a colorful card to brighten your day. I'm showcasing the new Color Me Happy Stamps, It's such a great set with various sentiments that you can use all year around. I love how cheerful and positive all the sentiments are.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Color Me Happy Rainbow Rainy Day Card by Lexa Levana

I mixed up two stamp set for this card, Rain or Shine and Color Me Happy. I'm so glad to find out that the older stamp sets could coordinate well with the new ones. My card tells a story about how there's a rainbow after rains, so don't you worry about a thing. I started with a 4.25" x 5.5" white card base and blended them with Pumice Stone, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. I also sprayed some water to create faded colors on some spot. 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Color Me Happy Rainbow Rainy Day Card by Lexa Levana

I stamped all my images with Versafine black ink on a piece of watercolor paper and colored them all with Distress Markers. To create a bokeh effect, I die cut circles using Sun Ray Dies on vellum. I stamped some raindrops with blue dye inks to complete my story that the rain just stopped and a beautiful rainbow appear.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

That Sucks Polka Dot Vacuum Card with Vanessa

Hi everybody! Vanessa here with a card using the hilarious set, That Sucks. Honestly, I never thought I would need a stamp set with a vacuum cleaner - until I saw this set! It's so fun and I love this cute cleaner! Who would have thought an household item could be so much fun?

Sunny Studio Stamps: That Sucks Polka Dot Vacuum Card by Vaness Menhorn

For my card, I adhered a piece of patterned paper to the left side of the card base. Now I trimmed a strip of pink cardstock and added it to the edge of the patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of grey cardstock and adhered it. Then I stamped the image onto white cardstock and onto patterned paper. I colored the cardstock cleaner with Copics and fussy-cut both images.

Now I paper-pieced the cleaner and adhered it to the card with foam tape. Finally, I die cut the tiny hearts, using the coordinating That Sucks dies, from the same patterned paper and adhered them. I wish my vacuum cleaner would look like this :) I would definitely have more fun using it!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope to see you next week!

Friends & Family Floral Wreath Card With Lindsey

Hi, Lindsey here today sharing a card using the new Friends & Family stamps. This set has tons of sentiment options as well as some simple yet versatile solid stamp flowers. This set was a lot of fun to play with. Let's get started on how I created this bright and springy card.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Friends and Family Flower Card by Lindsey Sams

To begin, I cut a plaid patterned piece of paper to an A2 sized card base. Next I cut a smaller stitched rectangle from some Kraft card stock. This is the layer I did my stamping on. I began by stamping the sentiment in black in the center of the rectangle. Then, I traced the outline of a circle around the sentiment using a very light pencil line. This would give me a guide to do my flower stamping on so the wreath would end up a perfect circle. 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Friends and Family Flower Card by Lindsey Sams

I used a bunch of different colors of dye ink to stamp the flowers. I love how colorful the wreath is with all the sweet little flowers. To add a little something extra to the flowers, I used a white gel pen to add some details and highlights. I put a scalloped piece of pink card stock behind the stamped panel and popped it up on the plaid card base. To finish off the card, I added a few sparkly sequins. That's it!

This card is so bright and cheery and is perfect for spring. I hope you'll give this set a try and create your own Family and Friend cards. It really is a fun set to play with. I look forward to seeing what you create. Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Sun Ray Dies and Friends & Family Floral Card with Emily

Hi everyone, Emily here. Today's card features a unique way to use the Sun Ray Dies.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Sun Ray Dies and Friends & Family Floral Card by Emily Leiphart

First, I used the largest of the three circles and die cut a circle in the center of the front panel. Then I used the Friends & Family stamp set to stamp a wreath around the circle. I created masks for the flowers and leaves so I could overlap them without muddling the colours together.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Sun Ray Dies and Friends & Family Floral Card by Emily Leiphart

After the wreath was fully stamped, I used the individual ray dies to partially die cut the bands around the open circle. I die cut them one at a time so I could use my cutting plate to control where they stopped cutting near the edges of the panel.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Sun Ray Dies and Friends & Family Floral Card by Emily Leiphart

Finally, I stamped the smaller words inside the circle, directly on the card base, and layered the die cut word from the Friends & Family Word Dies, silver on black to create a shadow, and adhered the two ends on the popped up panel. It worked out well that the 'O' from 'so' is the dot over the 'i' since the dot from the die itself would've interfered with the stamped part of the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Easter Wishes Easter Blessings Card with Eloise

Hi everyone, Eloise here and today I'm sharing a card I made with the Easter Wishes stamp set. This set is super cute, I love all the little critters you get in the stamp set and all the other images too, such a great set to create scenes.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Easter Wishes Easter Blessing Critter Card by Eloise Blue

To begin my card I stamped out all my images onto some watercolour paper. I used Versafine Onyx black ink and then clear heat embossed over it. I used my Zig Clean Colour Markers to do my colouring today, they're super fun and easy to use. Once all my colouring was done I dried my images and used all the coordinating Easter Wishes dies to die cut them out. 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Easter Wishes Easter Blessing Critter Card by Eloise Blue

For my background I used the Sunny Semi Circles dies and die cut a hill into another panel of watercolour cardstock. I then used two green Distress Inks to colour the grass and then with the remaining piece of watercolour paper I used various colours to create a sun-setting sky. I used Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord, this creates a gorgeous sunset sky! I then flicked a little water onto both pieces to give a little water splotch effect. 

Once by background was done I taped the pieces together and stuck together my scene. I used foam tape on all the images to give the card some nice dimension. I popped up the entire panel on fun foam and adhered it to a white card base and the card was complete.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and got inspired. I really love making different backgrounds with Distress Inks, it's super fun! Make sure you check back the rest of the week for more inspiration.

Timeless Tulips & Froggy Friends Birthday Cards with Amy

Hello everyone! Amy here to share with you a card I made using the Timeless Tulips and Color Me Happy stamp sets. This was only my second time using a layering set, but after making this card I've become a fan of the style.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Timeless Tulips You Color My World Card by Amy Yang

As I mentioned before, I don't make cards with layering stamps. Therefore, I don't own any dye inks with coordinating colors, or that will produce a crisp stamped image. However, I do have a whole collection of Distress inks and I thought I'd give them a try. The images can be crisper and stamped better but I think they still turned out pretty, do you agree?

Sunny Studio Stamps: Timeless Tulips and Froggy Friends Birthday Cards by Amy Yang

The sentiment says "You color my world" so I wanted this card to be colorful. I used various Distress Inks to stamp all different style tulips you find in this set, along with three stems and leaves. Next, I fussy cut them out. Then, I stamped three stems and leaves again, this time directly onto front panel, leaving space between them. At this point I also stamped the sentiment and added the cute little bugs. Finally, I adhered the other stems and leaves in the open spaces. I added foam adhesive behind all the tulip buds and added them to the front panel.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Timeless Tulips and Froggy Friends Birthday Cards by Amy Yang

I really enjoyed working with the Timeless Tulip stamp set; it produces really pretty flowers. It also inspired me to pick up some dye inks that are meant for layering. I can't wait to try them out with this stamp set again. Maybe I can share those with you next time. 

I also created a cheerful and fun birthday card I made by combining three stamp sets together: Froggy FriendsTurtley AwesomeEaster Wishes. These adorable critters are here to wish someone a very Hoppy Birthday.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Timeless Tulips and Froggy Friends Birthday Cards by Amy Yang

To create my front panel, I used a cloud stencil to color the background using Distress ink in Stormy Skies. I also colored the die cut hill using Twisted Citron and added it to the front panel using foam adhesive (for dimension).

Sunny Studio Stamps: Timeless Tulips and Froggy Friends Birthday Cards by Amy Yang

To add the party hats to the turtles and the chicks for a cleaner and more seamless look, I used the masking technique. Masking is a simple technique where you cover a stamped image so that the other images may be placed over it. First, I stamped the party hat on masking paper and cut it out. Next, I stamped a couple of hats on white card stock. I adhered the mask over the corresponding images. Then, I stamped the the turtles and the chicks over each hat. Finally, I stamped the rest of the images I used on the card and colored them with Copic markers.

Isn't the frog on this card the cutest thing? His expression just makes me smile. Since this frog is a jumping image, I thought it would be clever to make him wobble. So I made my own wobble spring using some craft wire and tape.
