Sun Ray Dies Rainbow Card with Vanessa

Hi everybody! Vanessa here with a colorful rainbow card using the Sun Ray Dies. I really love ink blending, so I decided to use the negative space of the dies to apply some ink through it.

I die-cut a ray from a scrap of paper, placed it above my cardstock panel and applied ink with an ink blending tool. Then I shifted my mask and applied the next color. I repeated this with all the colors and removed the mask. Now I stamped the sentiment from Color Me Happy and adhered the panel to the purple card base.

I stamped the ice cone from Sweet Shoppe onto a piece of white cardstock, colored it with Copics and fussy-cut it. After I had adhered the image with foam tape, I added matching sequins to the rays. 

Yum, I so love this cute stamp set! I hope your day is filled with rainbows! Thank you for stopping by today!

Daffodil Dreams and Vintage Jar Thank You Card with Amy

Hello everyone! Amy here to share a card that features the Daffodil Dreams and Vintage Jar stamp sets. These layering stamps are wonderful for making beautiful flower themed cards for any occasion. 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Daffodil Dreams and Vintage Jar Thank You Card by Amy Yang

I stamped my daffodils with three shades of pink, and the leaves with two shades of green using dye inks. I die cut them with the coordinating dies. Then, I stamped the flower stems, and on top of that I stamped the Vintage Jar using two shades of light blue. I colored the bottom half of the jar with my light blue Copic marker to represent water. I die cut the jar using the coordinating die and wrapped twine around the top to add dimension and interest.

To create my front panel, I trimmed cardstock to 5"X 4" and blended the bottom using the same inks I used for the flowers. I added a splatter of the same colors to go diagonally across the cardstock. I even colored the word 'thanks' (from the vintage jar dies) using the same ink so that everything matched. Lastly, I assembled the die cut images onto the the front panel using foam adhesive and added it to a folded note card.

Timeless Tulips Vellum Wrapped Tulip Bouquet Card with Emily

Hey everyone, it's Emily here. Today's card features the stunning Timeless Tulips stamp set and coordinating dies. These were so easy to stamp and I didn't even use a stamp positioner for these. I stamped them in reverse order using an acrylic block!

I used Fishtail Banners II dies to create a vellum wrap for the bundle of tulips and died it off with some burlap string and a tag created with the Semi Circles dies and Tag Topper Crescent dies.

Color Me Happy Rainbow Window Card with Eloise

Hello everyone! Eloise here and today I have a fun rainbow card to share with you using the Color Me Happy stamp set along with a few other sets also!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Color Me Happy Rainbow Window Card by Eloise Blue

To begin my card today I went ahead and pulled several stamp sets with images I could colour for the whole rainbow. So I pulled Tropical Paradise, Fresh and Fruity, Sunny Sentiments, Froggy Friends, Sweet Shoppe and Stars and Stripes and stamped out one of the images out of each set onto some white cardstock, and used various Copic Markers to colour them in. I then used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Once my images were ready I would on my window portion. 

I've done this for a previous card before, so I had the template all ready to go, I just lined up the template on another piece of white cardstock, taped it into place and placed the die in the slots to cut them out. For the circles I used the orange slice die from Fresh and Fruity. Once I had cut all six circles, I could work on the background.

I masked off the circles behind the window panel and used various colours of Distress Inks to ink blend the background. I did each circle a colour of the rainbow in order. I then used foam adhesive to adhere down the window frame on top of the coloured background piece. I used tape adhesive and glued down my images into their coordinating coloured circle. Once my images were adhered I moved into my sentiment.

I used the 'You Fill My Days with Rainbows' sentiment from the Color Me Happy stamp set and white heat embossed that onto some black cardstock with white embossing powder. I cut down the strip and foam mounted it to the panel. For my card base I added a pink piece of cardstock to the card base and then adhered my panel on top. For a very last finishing touch I used some sequins to add into the circles in coordinating colours.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and make sure you check back on the blog for more inspiration this week!

Guest Designer Spotlight: Cards with Juliana Michaels

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

Hello Sunny Studio Fans and Happy Saturday! It's Juliana and I'm thrilled to be guesting again here on the Sunny Studio blog. Today I'm sharing a trio of cards I created using stamps and dies from the recent Spring release.

With my blog being named 17Turtles, I of course have a thing for turtles and I couldn't resist playing with the Turtley Awesome stamp set. Those little turtles are just adorable!

The turtles and heart were stamped using Versafine Ink and then colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I blended the pencils using a stump blender dipped in Gamsol. Next, I die cut the colored images and added some Glossy Accents to give them a little shine.

Using my Fuse Tool I created a shaker card pocket and filled it with gold hearts and little irridescent pink hearts. I placed this behind the die cut heart panel and then attached everything to my card base.

For my second card I used the beautiful Daffodil Dreams set. I really enjoyed working with this layered stamp set to create these realistic looking images.

I stamped the daffodils using 3 different colors of yellow ink and the leaves using 2 different colors of green ink. Next, I die cut all of the flowers and leaves and arranged them to create 2 border pieces. I used washi tape to help hold them together until I was happy with the design and then adhered them to the card using double sided foam tape to give them some added dimension.

The sentiment is die cut from black cardstock using one of the dies from the Vintage Jar Dies set. I placed this on a strip of patterned paper layered onto a piece of cardstock to create a banner across the card front. The finishing touch was the addition of some black enamel dots.

I again used the Daffodil Dreams Stamp set and combined it with the Vintage Jar Stamps to create this third card. For the daffodils and leaves, I used the same stamping technique as I did for the first card. I then stamped the jar onto vellum with a light gray ink. Using a foam blending tool, I applied Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass to the backside of the vellum to give the appearance that the flowers were in water.

After die cutting all of the images, I arranged them on the card front. I used double sided foam tape to adhere some of the daffodils for an added touch of dimension. For the sentiment, I die cut a banner from kraft cardstock and stamped the “thanks” using brown ink. I then tied a bit of twine around the mouth of the jar and attached the banner.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared with you today. For another bit of inspiration, head on over to my blog HERE to check out a fun technique for using the backside of your stamps using the Turtley Awesome stamp set

That Sucks Puppy Girl Vacuum Card with Lexa

Hello crafty friends! Lexa here today with a card starring That Sucks Stamp and it's coordinating dies. I've been thinking about the idea to pair the vacuum with one of Sunny Studio standing critters, so I try all the possibilities and came up with this girl puppy from Sockhop Stamp. They look pretty well together with the punny sentiment. A perfect card for someone you can't live without. For me, it's my mom.

I usually make a lot of cards with scenes, but this time I try to play with layouts. I must say it's out of my comfort zone. I start with a 4.25"x5.5" piece of white cardstock and blend some blue inks with a grid stencil on the left side. Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks are perfect for the blue hues I try to achieve. I stamped my images with Versafine black ink and watercolor all of them with Distress Markers. I fussy cut the puppy's hands with craft knife so I can tuck the vacuum handle between them.

A few things that I love about That Suck Coordinating Dies are that it has the "suck" with bolder font than the stamp, and you also can use the tiny heart dies without the stamp too (just like I did with my card). One more thing - coordinating dies really make your life easier. Hehe. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you all have an awesome day!
