Sunny Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop with Product Video

Sunny Studio Celebrates 5th Anniversary with Birthday Blog Hop, New Fall & Winter 2020 Release, Prizes and a Special Sale!
Hello & welcome to Sunny Studio's fifth Birthday celebration!!!  

Can you believe it's already been five years? In many ways it feels like I have been attempting to scale a mountain to reach this special milestone, but on the other hand I can't believe how quickly the years flew by. Our little company wouldn't be here today without YOU, our loyal customers. Your kind support and sweet notes of encouragement truly keep me going.  

I would also like to take a moment to thank the 28 designers (from both past and present), countless more guest designers and Laura Vegas, our social media coordinator, for keeping this blog full of inspiring projects week after week. Their tireless efforts and oodles of creativity have meant the world to me and I couldn't run this company without them. ❤️


I'm super excited to share that we will have three new team members joining us starting next week! Please help me in welcoming these sweet and talented ladies to the blog!

Today I have a video sharing a closer look at all the new products from our fall & winter sneak peek week, along with all the cards I created using them: 

I also have a few new cards that I didn't get to share earlier in the week. 

Card No. 1: Up first is a card showcasing our new Season's Greetings Word dies to go with last year's Season's Greetings Stamps. I'm so excited to finally have a way to use these beautiful sentiments over a textured background like this one!  For my background, I used our new Frilly Frames Quatrefoil Dies together with the small stitched mat dies from our Frilly Frames Retro Petals Dies set. 

For my flowers I used a combination of the poinsettias that come with our Window Quad Circle Dies and the mini poinsettia die that automatically come FREE with all orders placed in our store while supplies last, adding Wine Berry Pearls to the center of each. For the sprigs of greenery tucked behind my flowers I used those same Season's Greetings stamps together with the Season's Greetings dies.Sunny Studio Stamps Merry Christmas Red & Green Poinsettia Handmade Holiday Card (using Season's Greetings Stamps & Word Dies, Frilly Frames Quatrefoil & Window Quad Circle Dies)

Card No. 2: For my next card, I finally got to create my ice skating rink that I didn't get to share earlier in the week using our new Winter Scenes Stamps and dies. This set come with the option a curved line can be added or omitted to the tree border to create the edge of a pond or ice skating rink like I did here. For my snowy background I ink up my sky with tumbled glass distress ink and then heat embossed the flakes using our Frosty Flurries stamps.  I was excited to pull out an older favorite, Playful Polar Bears, for my ice skating bear which I colored with Copic Markers. 

I then added stitching and ric-rac trim to the edge of my panel using our Slimline Basic Border Dies and stamped my sentiment using the Inside Greetings Holiday Stamps with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. To tie in the blue of my bear's scarf, I added a strip of blue striped paper from our new Sleek Stripes Paper pack and scattered some royal blue snowflakes using our Snowflake Circle Frame dies. When everything else was done I added some Stardust Stickles to my row of trees and set it aside to dry for a couple hours.  I just love the they sparkle!Sunny Studio Ice Skating Polar Bear Handmade Holiday Christmas Card (using Winter Scenes, Playful Polar Bears, Frosty Flurries, Inside Greetings Holiday Stamps, Snowflake Circle Frame Dies & Sleek Stripes Paper)

Card No. 3:  I was sad I didn't get to create a card using one of the two different balloon options that come with our North Pole Stamps so I squeezed one in for today, pairing them with some metallic gold embroidery thread for the strings. I used our Slimline Scalloped Frame dies to create a panel that goes off the edge for my A2 sized card, mounting it onto a green striped paper from our Dot & Stripes Jewel Tones Paper.

I colored both my girl and balloons with Copic markers and stamped some stars from the set with clear VersaMark Ink before heat embossing them with glittery gold embossing powder.  I learned the hard way that is definitely a step you will want to do before you glue down your balloons though as the metallic thread will melt and snap in two when it comes in contact with the heat gun. I guess I should have thought that through. For my sentiment I cut apart the scripty words "Christmas Cheer" that come with the stamp set and instead replaced the word "Christmas" with one of the smaller options in the set that would fit better in the space I had left to work with.
