Owl Squad Cup Of Cheer

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a card that highlighting Happy Owl-o-ween Stamps and the coordinating dies. This adorable little owl is just too cute to be true, he can be a pirate or even turn into a princess. Today the dressed up owls are up into something...

Oh well, they are sharing some cups and hang around together. I paired this set with the older set called Mug Hug. Even though the size of the cups look gigantic, I still think they look good together. Each have their own favorite. I use Stitched Scallop Borders dies on the bottom, the scallop edge looks so cute. I use a stencil and Shaded Lilac Distress Ink to create the background. Some crystal clear sequins in various sizes are always ready to complete my card. I even mix the sentiment from both stamp sets to create the perfect one that goes well with the images from the card.


That's all for today, thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all have an amazing day!

Thanks Quilted Background

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a card that will be perfect for a special woman in your life, starring Quilted Hexagons stamp set which is literally a star! It's so beautiful no matter how you'd like to stamp it or whatever color you'd choose. As for my card, I'd love it to be colorful and use all the quilted patternes. It turns out so pretty and I love love love it.


First of all, I stamp the stitched guard with grey ink and then randomly stamped all the patterns with different colors for each. I left a white border on the bottom so the mason jar won't look like it floating. Timeless Tulips along with Vintage Jar look so well with the background. But when I arrange them all together, the tulips look like lost on the quilted background that's why I decided to add a piece of vellum behind the jar to soften the background a little bit. A simple "thanks" from Vintage Jar Coordinating Dies to complete my card for today. Thin pink frame around it to make a finished look is the last touch.


The hexagon patterns are even more beautiful from up close. I recently so addicted to Nuvo Drops and for this card I use the white pearl color, it's so cool! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you like this card as much as I do. Have a wonderful day!

Thankful For Ewe

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a pastel color card featuring Missing Ewe stamp and coordinating dies. These adorable fluffy sheeps are new additions to Sunny Studio critter stamps.


I rarely use my patterned papers now days, but as you can guess I've been hoarding a lot. So that's why today I try to use them as much as possible. The sweet pastel colors are always a smart choice. I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with coloring, I die cut them at once with the coordinating dies (truly a time saver!) I simply just put them together to create a little scene. I create a green grass border using Stitched Scallop Dies on green stripped pattern paper against the starry pink sky. These cute little sheeps have their "pals" from other set which is Easter Wishes. I use all of three together in one scene.


I finished my card with some yellow dots using yellow opaque Nuvo drops. Thank you so much for visitting today, I hope you like my card! Have a wonderful day to you and yours.

A Season Of Blessings

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to share a card that full of autumn vibes. I believe that all of you have smitten by Sunny Studio's layered stamps from previous releases, and this brand new Pretty Pumpkins Stamp is not an exception. This set is aboslutely a star, gorgeous!


I always got helps from a stamping tool to create perfect layered images. I stamped the pumpkins in three shades of orange dye inks, I start with the lightest one to the darkest. Then I finished every pumpkins with green stems and then die cut each of them with the coordinating dies. After I finished with them, I arrange all three on top a piece of burlap with some foam tapes. I made some loops from broken white strings and adhere it messily behind the pumpkins. 
I create the background with blending Wild Honey Distress Ink and using a woodgrain stencil blend some Ripe Persimon Distress Ink to create a patterned paper. Somehow I feel this card is too orange, so I decided to layer a kraft paper behind the burlap to add more brown and autumn feel to it. Look how beautiful those pumpkins are from up close! Looove it.


I stamped the sentiment from Autumn Greetings with brown dye ink on the right top of the card. I totally adore the handwritting font, perfection. Don't forget the sparkling clear sequins for the finishing touch, I think I'm obsessed.


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you like my card, have a wonderful day everyone!

Birthday Wishes From The Whole Herd

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! 

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 yout favorite animal from the whole herd? :)
Thank you so much for visitting today, I really hope you like my card as much as I do. Have a incredibly wonderful Friday!
