Guest Designer Spotlight: Fall Cards with Jennifer McGuire

We're so excited to welcome Jennifer McGuire to the blog today as our special guest. She has some gorgeous cards that you are going to just love! 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Pretty Pumpkins and Autumn Greetings Fall Cards with Masking Video Tutorial by Jennifer McGuire

For today's card she's sharing techniques using masking to create clean, crisp images with colorful backgrounds and a bit of texture using our Pretty Pumpkins & Autumn Greetings sets.

You can view Jennifer's video below (or in HD at our YouTube channel HERE).


To start, Jennifer stamped her layered images in the center of her card.  Next, she used an embossing pad along with two circle dies to make an impression around her focal point image.

She then used the coordinating die with masking material to mask off her pumpkin and the the outside of the circle, leaving the negative space to ink with twisted citron and pealed paint distress oxide inks.  When she was done she added some sparkle to the stem and pumpkin shadows using Wink of Stella's clear glitter pen.  Little touches like that go such a long way to really make your images pop.

For her pumpkins today Jennifer stamped them using the following ink combinations:
Up next, we have a similar card, this time adding a little broken china ink to the top portion of the circle.

For all her envelopes, she paired a matching green envelope with a simple stamped sentiment using our Autumn Greetings stamps.

For Jennifer's third Pumpkin themed card, she took her masking up a step and layered three pumpkin images starting with stamping the smallest pumpkin in the front and then using masks with the coordinating dies to work her way to the biggest pumpkin in the back.

For her background she cut a frame using Hero Art's Nesting Postage Stamps Infinity Dies and inked the center with antique linen distress oxide ink.

Here's another look at all three cards using this fun technique...

As a little bonus, Jennifer used the same double masking technique for a sweet card with our Pet Sympathy set.

She started by stamping and coloring the dog, then covered it with a mask cut using the coordinating die and then used a second mask of post it tape to ink up the ground and wall behind the pup using peeled paint and broken china distress oxide inks.

When she was done, she added nuvo drops to the nose and eyes and glossy accents to the heart for a bit of shine.

Barnyard Buddies Farm Animal Themed Birthday Card with Lexa

Hi there! Lexa here today with a card that featuring the ultimate cuteness from Barnyard Buddies stamp and it's coordinating dies. When you can't choose which one is your favorite from the herd, use them all! 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Barnyard Buddies Farm Animal Themed Birthday Card by Lexa Levana

First, I stamp all the images with Versafine black ink and then watercolor them using Distress Markers. They look more adorable after they are colored. Don't you think so? I die cut all of them with the coordinating dies and they are ready to jump into the scene. I blend Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feather Distress Inks for the sky. The whole herd is here, but someone is missing...oh I found the fluffy sheep from Missing Ewe. And they are a full team at last. 

I complete my scene using couple of trees from Happy Home, I think they are a perfect size so they look like planted behind the hills and the barn house. To match the barn, I white embossed my sentiment on a strip of red cardstock. I also do a custom sentiment by combining "birthday wishes" from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and "from the whole herd" from Barnyard Buddies. I adhere all the animals with different height of foam tapes to create dimensions.

I adhere a pair of googly eyes for the horse and the cow, they look so cute! Which one is your favorite animal from the whole herd? 

Thank you so much for visiting today, I really hope you like my card as much as I do. Have a incredibly wonderful Friday!

Happy Owl-o-ween Bumble Bee Halloween Card with Vanessa

Happy Thursday, everybody! Vanessa here with a cute Halloween card using the adorable Happy Owl-o-Ween setI loved dressing up the fun owl with the bumble bee costume.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Happy Owl-o-ween Bumble Bee Halloween Card by Vanessa Menhorn

First, I trimmed a panel of orange patterned paper slightly smaller than the black card base. Then I stamped the stars and the "boooooo" and applied droplets of black ink. I inked the edges of the panel with an ink blending tool and adhered it to the card.

Next I stamped the owl and the parts of the costume. I colored everything with Copics, die-cut the images with the matching dies, assembled the pieces and adhered it to the card with foam tape. I stamped and heat-embossed the wings onto vellum, die-cut them and adhered them to the owl.

Finally, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the card.

Thank you for stopping by! See you next week :)

Pretty Pumpkins & Autumn Greetings Pumpkin Card with Amy

Hello everyone! Amy here with an Autumn card featuring the new Pretty Pumpkins. This is a fun stamp layering set that gives you beautiful, realistic looking pumpkins. 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Pretty Pumpkins & Autumn Greetings Pumpkin Card by Amy Yang

To begin, I stamped the pumpkins using Distress Oxides in Fired Brick, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and the stems using Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint. I used the Pretty Pumpkins dies to cut them out. I love adding critters to my cards so I borrowed the adorable owl from Happy Owl-O-Ween and did no-line coloring with Copic markers. I cut him out with Happy Owl-O-Ween die.

For the front panel, I inked it with Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint. I splattered it with water and blotted dry with paper towel. For the sentiment, I used a sentiment from the Autumn Greetings stamps, and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder.

I added the images with adhesives and foam adhesives to the front panel. Lastly, I mounted the die-cut frame with foam adhesives. I hope you like today's card. I had so much fun working with the wonderful stamps.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Cute As A Button Friendship Button Card with Nancy

Hey there everyone, Nancy here today with a look at the Cute as a Button stamp and coordinating dieset. I love intricate designs that can be created quickly and this set delivers! The multiple sentiments are perfect for so many different types of cards. I love the versatility and dose of cute.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Cute As A Button Friendship Button Card by Nancy Damiano

The buttons were stamped using two shades of pigment ink for an opaque and colorful coverage. Layering the pigment ink gives the buttons depth and a pop of color.

The "sew" title was created using the Sew Word die and layered on a bed of buttons. The stamped needle image leads straight to the point - happy we're friends! A sprinkle of sequins in a few sizes adds movement to the design.

Missing Ewe Baby Themed Sheep Cards with Eloise

Hi everyone! Eloise here and today I'm using the new Missing Ewe stamp set along with the previously released Baby Bear stamp set to create a baby themed card, in a girl and boy version.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Missing Ewe Baby Themed Sheep Cards by Eloise Blue

To begin my card I first worked on my backgrounds. I pulled 3 Pinks and 1 Red Distress Ink for my girl themed background and 3 Blues and 1 Green Distress Ink for my boy themed card. I then inked two pieces with the Distress Ink completely in a gradient effect. Once they were both inked I splattered each with water droplets and dried them off with my heat tool.

I then stamped the sheep from Missing Ewe twice and coloured them with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also stamped, cut and coloured the bow image from Baby Bear too. One in pink and one in blue.

I used the 'welcome little one' sentiment from Baby Bear and lined them up in my MISTI tool and stamped them down onto my background in black ink and clear heat embossed them so they didn't smudge. I then adhered down my sheep images on each card with foam tape.

To finish off I used the Stitched Scallop dies to cut two white scallop borders and adhered them to the side of each of my panels. I then added fun foam to the backs of both panels and adhered them to coordinating colours of cardstock and added them to card bases.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, these sheep images are perfect for so many uses, night time scenes, baby cards, farm scenes. So many uses, I love them!

I hope you enjoyed my cards today and got inspired.
