Sunny Studio Stamps Blog Hop



Hello there everyone!
You must came from a super talented Nichol's blog, it's always fun to do a blog hop. It feels like strolling around in a virtual gallery, well..that's how I feel. Sunny Studio Stamps have a group of amazing designer for this Birthday Blog Hop..woohoo! I hope you stop by on every blog to see lots of ideas and inspirations. Sunny Studio is offering 15% off all purchases to the online store using the code "SUNNYBIRTHDAY" through Monday, August 15th at midnight PST.
Don't miss the chance to grab all the new release!

For my card today, I'm highlighting Autumn Splendor stamp set, it's a builtable stamp. It means that you layer each stamps to create one whole image. You can use the same ink color or another shades of them. Because when you stamp twice with the same color, you will have a slightly darker color than the first generation stamp. But if you ask me, I prefer to use different shade of colors (light green and a darker one for example). All the ink I'm using are dye inks, they dry fast and what I love most about them are the subtle colors.



Start with a 4"x5.25" panel of Neenah solar white extra smooth cardstock, stamp all the leaves, acorns and berries randomly. Layer the stamps one by one to create shadows and details. They are efortlessly gorgeous! Don't you think so?
The squirell is from the new release Woodsy Creatures, he is peeking from the back of the banner. I stamp it with Versafine Onyx Black ink on a watercolor paper and color it with Distress Markers. Have I mentioned that I love the handwritting style sentiments from Autumn Splendor? I think they are so beautiful, I wish my handwritting as good as that. I blend some Tea Dye Distress Ink for the fist tail banner before I stamped the thank you sentiment.
Here's a close up look of my card..

Baby Bear Welcome Little One Card with Lexa

Happy Friday everyone! Lexa here with another sweet baby card using Baby Bear stamp and coordinating dies. I create watercolored square panels and lots of cute baby stuffs for my card. I just can't resist all the adorably tiny little things on this set.


I start my card with creating watercolor background in blue, yellow and green on a piece of watercolor paper. Cut 6 panels with a basic stitched square dies, I love the color combination. Then I stamp all my images in Versafine Onyx Black and watercolor them with Distress Markers. I also create some details with white gel pen, it always adds extra something. The onesies, milk bottle, diaper's pin, a pair of tiny socks, and a blue polkadot sleepsuit...aren't they the cutest?
Coordinating dies surely make everything easier, but sometime I need to fussy cut them as I did on the blue bib. So it looks like a built-in stamp, I was inspired by Mendi's cards, she does it a lot. Finally I tie a brown twine on the top, it matches my baby bear perfectly.


I hope you like today's card. Have a great weekend!

Sunny Studio Sweet Shoppe

Hi everyone. Lexa here today with Sweet Shoppe (with coordinating dies) as the star of my card. I fall in love instantly with this set as I'm a sweet tooth myself, I craved for something sweet after I saw all the images. I bet some of you understand how I feel. Hehe.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Sweet Shoppe Sweet Birthday Wishes Donuts Card by Lexa Levana.

This card is a very simple one, I started with a 4.25" x 5.5" smooth white cardstock, blended with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Inks for the background. Because I needed a "ground" to place my donuts, I cut a strip of plaid patterned paper as the tablecloth. Two donuts have holes on them and the others don't. The trick is I wipe the hole before I stamp the image, easy peasy right? Then I stamped different toppings for each donuts.

For my card I choose the donuts with four different glazing flavors: chocolate, strawberry, mint and vanilla. My favorite will be the mint with crunchy chocolate on it. Yum! I stamped all the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink, watercolor them with Distress Markers after that. I also add some glossy accent to give a real glazing look. Here's a closer look..

Thank you for looking, I hope you like today's card as much as I do. Have a wonderful day!

Sunny Studio Baby Bear Cards

Hello everyone. Lexa here today with not one but two baby cards using Baby Bear stamp and it's coordinating dies. I love how sweet and adorable all the bears and their little accesories. My cards today will show you both version, baby girl and baby boy. Enjoy!


I went through the same layout and exactly same proccess for both cards, but I choose different patterned paper and color combination. For the baby girl card, pretty flowers card base and a stripe of lace was chosen for a more girly look. I also add a tiny pink bow for the baby bear. It's just so cute!
Fishtail Banners II dies from this new release will probably be one of my favorite, it's super versatile. The scalloped fishtail banner and the stitched detail is a perfect touch.


I die cut the Sweet Script four times and stack them together to create a dimension and as if it's not enough I add a generous amount of glossy accent after that. And I just left it over night. Here you can see the details.


For the baby boy card, I choose blue plaid patterned paper as the base. For the background behind the bear I create it with some washi tapes I've been hoarding for a long time. Glad finally I can use them. I love how this set has so many accesories, like this cute tiny pacifier..adorrrable!


By repeating the same layout as the first card, I can finished both of them in a day. And of course, clear sequins can't be missed.


I hope you love my cards from today. Have a wonderful weekend! xx

Sunny Studio Butterfly Slider Card

Hi there crafty friends! I hope you are doing well. Lexa here today with a fun interactive slider card starring Backyard Bugs stamps and dies. I had so much fun creating this one.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Backyard Bugs Fluttering By To Say Hi Butterfly slider card by Lexa Levana.

I start this card with die-cut a piece of watercolor paper die-cut with a basic stitched rectangle die.  I then scribble some Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink on my acrylic block then spray some water to blend it. After the Distress Ink reacted well, I place my watercolor paper on top of it. I love how uneven and imperfect it looks. That's the beauty of watercolor, I think. :)

All the images and sentiment were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then I used Distress Markers to color the images. For extra sweetness, I stamp pink hearts on the sky and color them with a soft pink alcohol ink. I finished my card by blending some Spun Sugar Distress Ink on the edges of the card base to match my butterfly's wings color.
