Sunny Saturday Share: Darling Creations with Apples & Penguins

Hello there!  I'm back with another Sunny Saturday share.  

Up first we have a fun little gift tag created by Francine Vuilleme using our School Time stamps and Fishtail banner dies.  

I adore the way she split her tag with an offset "v" using our dies and how cute the red gingham and apple look together.  She has some mad coloring skills!  ;)

Our next is a card by Ann Marie Ruda using our Bundled Up stamp set.  Love her beautiful night sky and vibrant colors! 

And lastly, we have another card by Ann Marie Ruda using that same set.  Love her color combinations with the red and teal and the fun circle window she created!  :)

You can always find more inspiration using our stamps in our flickr group.

Don't forget that we are always looking for cute ideas to share on our next Sunny Saturday Share feature.  We would love for you to share them with us on our Facebook page, on Instagram using the hashtag #sunnystudiostamps or add them to our Flickr group.  I hope you enjoy have a very happy Halloween!  :)

Birthday Smiles Hugs Card and Fishtail Banners Love Card with Marion

Hello, it's Marion here. I hope you have been enjoying all of the inspiration from the design team this week on the blog. Today I have two more cards to share with you.

The first card uses the Birthday Smiles stamp set. Who wouldn't love a huge ice cream like this? It's hard to tell from the photo, but the ice creams are covered with some Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen, so they are really shimmery. I white heat embossed the images onto some water colour paper and then used Distress inks to colour them.

The sentiment is from the Furever Friends die set. I die cut 5 'hugs' words and adhered them together to form a thicker sentiment.

For my second card, I have used the Fishtail Banner dies to create a modern and graphic design. I ran the banner die cut through my machine several times to create smaller arrow shapes of varying thicknesses. I adhered these to a white piece of card stock leaving random spaced gaps between the arrows. Once again the sentiment and hearts are from the Furever Friends die set.

The hearts are are covered with a layer of black Ranger Enamel Accents for some shine and dimension.

Birthday Smiles Banner Card & Cupcake Gift Tag with Elise

Hi everyone! It's Elise here to share a cute banner card featuring the Birthday Smiles stamp set. I think the banners that are included in the Birthday Smiles set are adorable, so I used a bunch of them to create a banner on a birthday card!

I stamped the banner onto different colors of patterned paper, cut out each banner, and attached it to my card with either foam tape or glue. The close up shows some of the different layers from the foam tape.

I also added a bunch of hearts onto each of the banners in different colors, and finished it by adding some twine bows to the end of the banner! So easy and cute!

I also made a birthday tag by using the Fishtail Banner Dies!

The top tag is cut from white card stock with the scalloped edge banner die, and the bottom layer is cut from patterned paper with the dotted edge banner die. I added the cupcake and heart, stamped the sentiment, and drew a border around the edge to finish the tag!

Thanks for stopping by and come back tomorrow for some more design team inspiration!! :)

Bright Birthday Smiles Balloon Card with Audrey

Hello there!  Audrey here with a bright and happy birthday card using the Birthday Smiles stamp set and the  Fishtail Banners dies!  

I started off by die-cutting a piece of white cardstock with the Fishtail banners dies and chose to use the little dotted edge die from the set.  Then on that same panel, I stamped the open line balloon image, masked it off and stamped again, repeating this process until I was happy with how my bunch looked.  

I colored the balloons with my Copic markers and used a white gel pen to add highlights to each balloon.  I stamped the sentiment near the bottom right of the banner and then hand drew balloon strings with a black marker (but there is a string image in the stamp set if you prefer).  I cut a landscape orientated card base and added some brightly colored patterned paper to coordinate with my balloons, popping the panel up on the card base.  I added some twine and tied a bow on the left side of the card base, adding a fun scattering of sequins to finish things off.

Sunny Studio Birthday Wishes

That's all for me today!  I hope you enjoyed my bright birthday card!  Be sure to stop back again tomorrow for lots more inspiration from the design team! :)

Birthday Smiles Watercolor Ice Cream & Cherry Cards with Heidi

Hello everybody, Heidi here! This week we are introducing the "Birthday Smiles" stamp set, so I created this birthday card which was very simple to make, so I hope you will give it a try!
Let me show you the card and tell you a little bit more about it.

I created a watercolor wash for the background  using similar colors as those that I used for the scoops of ice cream.  I stamped the sentiment on to the left bottom corner of the right--These nice and bold sentiments can be stamped directly on the card panel (I love that).  I stamped and colored the cone and the scoops of ice cream using Copic Markers. I fussy cut the images and I popped them up on the right side of the card, on top of the watercolor wash. 

To finish the card I added a cherry from the "Birthday smiles" stamp set and some random sequins, picking up the colors of the card.

While I had my supplies out on my desk I created another quick card using the same cherry stamp from the set along with the fishtail banner dies to create a pennant for my heat embossed sentiment.

The adorable stamp set used for both of today's cards is available at the Sunny Studio Stamps shop, and it's a most have to create cute and fun card for birthdays or just to simply send a happy message.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Don't forget to tag your projects on social media using the #SunnyStudioStamps so you can be featured on our Sunny Saturday Share.

Have a lovely day!

Snow Kissed Penguin Winter Birthday Card with Melissa

Hi everyone Melissa here. Today I have a card to share with you using the Birthday Smiles stamp set and the Fishtail Banner dies. I think the Birthday smiles set is so versatile and fun, I especially love the balloons and the ice-cream (I will have to be sure to use that in a future card!). 

To create this card I first marked out a rectangle on a piece of card, this would be the area for my scene. I die-cut a piece of masking paper and laid it where I wanted the snowy hill to be. I then stamped the little hearts and dots from the Birthday Smiles set onto the background with Versamark ink also adding some smaller dots with the Versamarker. I added white embossing powder and heat embossed those onto the background. 

After I had done that I added the inky sky. I did this by blending Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and a Black Soot Distress Inks. I then stamped the balloon and the little penguin from Snow Kissed onto some white card, colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut them. I stuck the balloon and the penguin onto the card and added a string to have the penguin holding the balloon. 

I stuck the background panel onto a card with some patterned paper and then laid over top a piece of card with a rectangle die cut out of the middle.  I like creating scenes this way because I think it adds some dimension to the card. To finish it off I cut a strip of white card and die cut both ends using one of the fishtail banner dies. I then added the sentiment in silver embossing power. 

That finishes up the card for today. I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by!

Furever Friends Purrfect Birthday Card and Tag with Marion

Hello. It's Marion here with a fun way to use the Furever Friends stamp set and its coordinating dies. If you struggle with colouring animal images or maybe you are just short on time, this technique could be one for you to try.

To begin with, I cut a panel of watercolor paper and painted a gradient of colour using Distress inks (from the top down, Barn Door, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, a mixture of Ripe Persimmon/Mustard Seed and Mustard Seed). As I wanted the watercolour panel to be quite vibrant, I added several layers of each colour, making sure to heat set the panel between each layer.

I then stamped and die cut the cat from the Furever Friends stamp set from the same watercolour paper and then adhered it to the card without adding any colour. I love the contrast of the white cat against the vibrant background.  To finish off both the card and tag, I white heat embossed a sentiment onto black card stock.

Furever Friends Fur You Kitty Cat Gift Tags with Elise

Hi everyone! It's Elise to share some cute tags with you that feature the Furever Friends stamps and dies! I really enjoy puns on my cards and projects, so I was super excited to see the "Fur You" stamp and I knew that it would be perfect on a tag!

I stamped, colored, and die-cut two kitties and attached them with foam tape onto some pattern paper tags. I also added some hearts and attached those with foam tape as well. I tied some twine to the top to finish off the tags! These will look so cute on a gift to a friend! :)

Here are some close ups on my coloring on the cats. I'm not the best at coloring, but I think these cats turned out really cute! I tried to make the orange cat look it had long, shaggy fur!

Thanks for stopping by to see these tags featuring the Furever Friends stamps and dies! Stop by again tomorrow for some more inspiration!  :)

Furever Friends Sending Warm Fuzzies Card with Audrey

Hello there!  Audrey here!  Today, I'm sending warm fuzzies with the new Furever Friends stamp set!  This set is full of adorable little kitties, and all different positions, and my favorite is the sleeping kitty.  I am a crazy cat lady, with four cats of my own, and 3 of the 4 love sleeping this way!  

I started off by creating a striped background.  I began with a white panel and then cut 1/2 inch strips of pink cardstock.  I used the lines on my grid mat to adhere them 1/2 inch apart to create this wide striped pattern.  Then I ran it through my die cut machine to add a stitched border and also really press down the adhesive and make sure the glued pieces stay put.  

I colored my cat with Copic markers, die-cut him with the coordinating Furever Friends dies, and popped him up on a speech bubble "pillow".  His dreams are filled with love!  Then I added a sentiment from the same stamp set.  To finish things off,  I added some clear sequins with a few tiny hearts and then popped the panel up on a white card base with foam tape.

Thanks all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by! :)

Furever Friends Purrfect Birthday Cat Card with Melissa

Hello Everyone, Melissa here. Today I have a card to share with you featuring the Furever Friends stamp set. I think this set is so cute! It is super hard to find cute cat stamps so these are amazing! 

I decided to make a simple and fun little scene by combining the Forever Friends set with the Birthday Smiles set. To create this card I first started with a strip of white card, this panel is one layer so I laid out the stamps how I wanted and proceeded to stamp and mask them until complete. I then colored the images using Copic markers. 

To finish the card I mounted it onto of some black card and then on top of some patterned paper. I think this card is super fun and easy to make and would be a great Birthday card for any cat lover!

I hope you like it.  Be sure to check back this week for more inspiration using Furvever Friends! Thanks for stopping by!

Harvest Happiness Thankful for You Tags with Marion

It's Marion here with three tags using the Harvest Happiness stamp set and coordinating dies.

To create the wreath tags, I began by creating a water colour panel using three colours of distress ink - Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon and Barn Door. When the panel was dry, I used the 5 small leaf dies from the Harvest Happiness die set and ran it through my die cutting machine several times.

To position the leaves into a wreath, I drew a small circle to act as a guide. I stamped my sentiment before adhering the leaves into position. For the blue wreath tag, I water coloured around the drawn circle with Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers before adhering the leaves.

I didn't want to waste any of my lovely water coloured panel, so I used the negative piece from all that leaf die cutting and made the following tag. I just had to die cut a whole lot of white leaves, to piece back into the negative spaces to create an inlaid effect.

And here they are all together.
