I also finally was able to catch my breath and create a video this weekend sharing all the new products with the cards that were shared last week which you can watch below or at our YouTube channel HERE.


Before I go, it also occurred to me that I somehow failed to share a card I created for Sneak Peek Week so I thought I would finally share it now.  :)

I made this snowflake shaker card using our new Layered Snowflake Frame dies which come with two different sizes of snowflake frames to create a really fun look when they are stacked together. I used our new Subtle Grey Tones Paper for my background and then mounted them on a blue diagonal print from our Gingham Pastels Paper pack.

For my Happy New Year sentiment I used a greeting from our Season's Greetings stamps and then used our blue snowflake confetti for my shaker and the mirror droplets to adorn the center of each grey snowflake.  My finished card measures 4.75" square.

Merry Mice Cards with Leanne and Eloise

Hello everyone, Leanne here! I'm thrilled to back here on blog sharing the first of my projects using the new holiday stamps and dies. The Merry Mice stamp set is certainly one of my favs from the new release. I've created a slimline card to showcase some of the cute little mice images.  

Sunny Studio Stamps: Merry Mice Season's Greetings Scalloped Tag Dies Holiday Card by Leanne West

My slimline card base measures 3.5" wide by 8.5" tall. I added a separate ink blended background panel to the card front. This panel is trimmed smaller than the card base to allow about a quarter inch white border to show. I used Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink and a blending brush to create the ombre' effect. I picked out three mice images and some accessories for this card. I Copic colored the images and used the coordinating Merry Mice dies to cut them out.

I used the Scalloped Tags Circle & Square dies to create little frames for the mice.  I masked off the scalloped edges and blended Pine Needles Oxide Ink onto the center of the tags. I then splattered with thinned white acrylic paint. I added the mice to the tags and then adhered the tags to the background with dimensional foam squares. I left enough space in between the tags to stamp the greeting which is included in the Merry Mice set.

I wanted to embellish the card with some pine sprigs and berry images from the Season's Greetings stamp set. They are the perfect accent in the corners and at the sides of the center tag. I tied bows with some baker's twine to the tags and that completed my card.  

-------------------------------------------------

Hi everyone, Eloise here and today I have a card using the new Merry Mice Stamp Set. This set is so super cute, and I love all the different mice and the dress up elements, too. I decided to use the mice in the stocking for my card today.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Merry Mice Punny Holiday Card by Eloise Blue

I started off with stamping out my images from Merry Mice, plus a couple of scarfs and hats too. I coloured them in with Copic Markers and then cut them out. Once they were cut, I added white gel pen details onto the images.

(Copic Markers: R14, R24, R27, R89 / W00, W0, W1, W3 / R000, R00, R30 / BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08 / BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49 / BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08 / YG01, YG03, YG23, YG17 / Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19)


Sunny Studio Stamps: Merry Mice Punny Holiday Card by Eloise Blue

For my background, I used some Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks and ink blended on the top half of a watercolour panel. I faded it off to white and then flicked on some water droplets. I then dried the entire panel with a heat tool.

I added string onto the backs of the mice so they would all be connected, added foam tape onto the back and adhered it onto the background. I added on their accessories, too. For my sentiment, I used the ‘Have A Mice Christmas’ from the same set and white heat embossed it onto a thin strip of black cardstock.

Lastly, I adhered the sentiment into place and adhered my entire panel onto a piece of white and grey striped patterned paper from the Subtle Grey Tones 6x6.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I’ll see you next week.

Sneak Peek Week: Sweet Treats Gift Bag Dies with House Add-on

Hello and welcome to the last day of our Winter Sneak Peek Week!  All this week I have been showcasing projects using our Holiday collection which starts shipping TODAY!!! 

Today's sneak peeks include our last two standalone dies from the release... Our Sweet Treats bag die and our complimentary Sweet Treats House Add-on dies!  I just know you are going to fall in love with these as much as I have.  Make to check out the video tutorial I created on all the fun ways they can be assembled near the bottom of the post.  :)

Gift Bag No. 1: The Sweet Treats bag dies comes with different options on how to close or carry the bag giving you three unique looks in one versatile die set. My first bag showcases the circular flap with a hook style closure.  These dies were designed to work beautifully with our 6x6 Papers so you are able to create a bag from just two sheets of 6x6 papers (or two bags from a 12x12 sheet, not counting the flap).  For the body of my bag I used paper from our new Very Merry Paper pack.

For this bag I pulled out my Fancy Frames Square dies to create a window before assembling the pieces which I backed with a piece of clear acetate.  I then cut a flap from a red gingham print from our Holiday Cheer Paper pack and decorated the front using our Santa Claus Lane Stamps and dies.


Gift Bag No. 2:  For my next bag, I left off the flap closure and instead used the oval handle that comes with the die set.  I cut my bag from a snowflake print from our Holiday Cheer Paper pack and then decorated the front and back with our Scenic Route Stamps and the pigs from our Hogs & Kisses Stamps.  I just love how it looks like this little pig is hollering "Merry Christmas".  I wanted him to be decked out for the cold weather too so I dressed him up in the hat and mittens from our Merry Mice Stamps and stamped a greeting from our Merry Sentiments Stamps.


For the back of my bag, I just continued my scene using the other two pigs from the stamp set.  Since the bag measures 3.5" wide, I had some room to play with the placement of my house border and I was able to vary them a bit so they weren't identical on both sides. Such a fun little bag to create!

Gift Bag No. 3:  For this bag, I wanted to create a special little treat to surprise my daughter with on Halloween day so I used some basic black and orange prints from our Classic Gingham, Polka-dot Parade and Heroic Halftones Paper packs.  To decorate my flap I used a set of nesting circle dies in my stash to cut a semi circle--I love how much oomph this little detail adds! To embellish my bag I used our Happy Owl-o-ween Stamps and some Midnight Blue Crystals.

Gift Bag No. 4:
 Up next is the third option for our Sweet Treat dies and that is a handled gift bag like this one here.  For this version, I paired it with our new Sweet Treat House Add-on dies, using the scalloped borders, window, door and wreath with bow and berries. 

Both the door and window for this set have been designed as a 2-piece set for maximum flexibility.  You can use them to cut just the outside rectangle or both with the panes/panels or in this case, I used just the window panes to cut openings from my bag background and then filled the open spaces on the inside with acetate.  That then gave me a surface to adhere my windows to.  By having them separate, you can also cut a rectangle for the door and then build the panels over the top for a more realistic dimensional look.

For the back of my bag, I used our Santa Claus Lane stamps to have Santa peeking out of the window and embellished the back with some fir trees from our Seasonal Trees stamps for added interest.  

For this bag I used prints from our Classic Gingham Paper, Heroic Halftones Paper and Amazing Argyle Paper (for the woodgrain door).

Gift Bag No. 5:
  Up next is an everyday take on those same supplies.  This time I used the scalloped flap that comes with our Sweet Treats House Add-on dies to create my flap, using some sticky magnetic sheets trimmed down to form my closure.  These are the same magnetic sheets I use to store my dies with my stamps so I actually had small leftover scraps going unused and was really happy to find a wonderful use for them.

For my roof, I used the two alternating scalloped dies from the set to decorate my flap using the two different brown grid prints found in our Gingham Jewel Tones Paper pack.

The same little circles that can embellish the wreath as berries become little centers for the flowers with flower box.  You might want to use a jewel picker though because they're definitely on the tiny side.  ;)  A little bird from our Seasonal Trees stamps finished off my bag.

Gift Bag No. 6:  For my last project of the day, I used the new Sweet Treat House Add-on dies to embellish our Wrap Around Box dies, using papers from our Very Merry Paper pack.  This time I used the little semi-circle window die for my door and cut extras of the shorter panels so that there would be room to still stack them.  

A greeting from our Happy Home stamps and some clay flower confetti were the perfect finishing touches.  I was tickled to discover the little heart die that comes with the set was just the right size to cover the heart in my sentiment!

I have created a video showing how to assemble these three styles of bags which you can watch down below or at our YouTube channel HERE.



That wraps up today's sneak peeks.  I'm so happy you've joined me!  If you missed it, make sure to check out our Birthday blog hop post HERE for a chance to win one of eighteen $25 Gift codes to our online store. Plus I share a few more details about our Holiday release promos shared below.  :)
