Sunny Studio : Playful Acorns

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a card that showcasing Nutty For You Dies, it's a super fun dies and it really is one of a kind. You can create tags, shaped card, or cute little acorns for your projects as I did today. First, I try to figure out where the little parts belong to but then I realized that I can make anything out of my imagination. I can't wait any longer... let's get started!

I cut the acorn base on brown patterned papers from Gingham Jewel Tones Paper Pad, I use both browns to create two acorns with different patterns. I add big round eyes for both of them, eyelashes for one and eyebrows (with the curve line that can be used as a smile) for the other one. I use the same big circle to create cheek blush for each of them. As you can see, they looks cuter with those faces. Don't you love them?
As for the background, I stamp some leaves from Beautiful Autumn Stamp with brown dye ink and some tiny hearts which I decided to color them red with a marker. I also stamp the sentiment from Happy Harvest Stamp with the same brown ink anda some white dots using white gel pen.

I'm so happy with the final reslut, I think it's adorable and will make anyone happy. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have an amazing day.

Sunny Studio : Happy Thoughts

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a birthday card that featuring Happy Thoughts Stamp from Sunny Studio. It includes so many greetings that you needed in your life. As one of my friend's birthday is coming up, I'll create this one especially for her. Let's get started.

I start with the background, I draw a thin diagonal line as a guide to stamp all the "happy". I stamp it with pink, blue, yellow and tosca dye inks in random orders. Then I use the same pink ink to create some splatters here and there. The balloons dies are from Studio Katia, I cut them in pink and blue patterned paper called Rainbow Bright Paperpad. I also layered the background with vellum to create a softer look against the balloons. The sentiments are white embossed on top of black cardstock and then I adhered them with some foam tapes for dimensions. To create borders for my card, I hand drawn the black lines along every edges. Plus it matches the black cardstock as well. Last but not least, I use some beautiful jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.

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

I use the brand new stamp set called Anemones Stamps, I stamp some flowers with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. Let's be honest, I never knew there are flowers called Anemones and of course I didn't know how it looks. So I searched them on Google and found some color inspirations from the real ones. I mersmerized by the blue-ish purple and how pretty they are. I fussy cut each pieces and here's an old trick, use black marker to color the edges and it will look more crisp.

I also add two Darling Dragonflies to compliment the card, I also stamped them with Versafine black ink and watercolored them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring, I use the coordinating dies to cut them. Nice and easy. They look pretty together, right?

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a card that inspired by fall colors. Highlighting this mini stamp set from Sunny Studio called Beautiful Autumn Stamp and coordinating dies. Don't underestimate this mini stamp set because it can be used in so many different ways. Let's get started to see what I made for today's inspiration for you.

First, I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring I use the coordinating dies to cut them all. I color the leaves with different colors that resembles fall, shades of browns and oranges with a little bit of greens. The little acorns with smiley face are really adorable. Because I want to create a wreath from these images, I had to stamp To complete the wreath, I also use some other images from other set called Happy Harvest Stamp. I cut the Greetings Word Die on brown cardstock twice and align them together. I had so much fun arranging the wreath, giving it dimensions with foam tapes. And I love the final result, I think it looks beautiful. Here's a closer look so you can see the details.

That's all for today, I hope you like this card as much as I do. Have a great day!

Sunny Studio : You're A Good Apple

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a card featuring  Fruit Cocktail Stamps. One of most favorite stamp from Sunny Studio because of it's realistic look and gorgeous result.

First I blend Wild Honey, Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks on a smooth white paper and create three windows using Window Trio Square Dies. Striped yellow patterned paper as  background for the apples. I stamp them in red and green for variation, I rather stamp them from lighter to darkest color. I use the red gingham from Gingham Jewel Tones 6x6 Paper Pad to create borders on top and bottom part of my card. Then I white embossed the sentiment on a black tab from Fancy Frames Rectangle Dies. The color combination is pretty bright, perfect for someone who need an encouragement.

That's all for today, I hope you like it. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Sunny Studio : Film Strip Dies

Hello everyone! It's Lexa here today with a card that highlighting the Fall Flicks Filmstrip Dies that has a lot of fun elements and versatile enough for every season, not only fall. Let's get started..

First of all, I die cut the sunflowers on solid color cardstocks and adhere every pieces together. I had an idea to create a sunflower field scene inside the filmstrip, but soon after I start to arrange the sunflowers the scene seems too plain and boring. So I add a red house from Comic Strip Everyday Dies to the scene and finally it comes to life. Together with some fluffy white clouds and grass border from the same die set it creates a complete scene. The red house is far from the sunflower field so it tends to look smaller. All solid colors make this scene stand out more.
I decided to cut the top and bottom part of the filmstrip so it will be a main focus in the middle of my card. Two thin stripes of brown woodgrain from Amazing Argyle Paper Pad adhered on each sides. I love how the sunflowers in the frontground are giving both depth and dimension to this card. The sentiment is from older set called Happy Home Stamp and stamped with brown dye ink.

That's all for today. I hope you like today's card as much as I do. Have a wonderful day!

Sunny Studio : Pearfect Ever After

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a card that highlighting Fruit Cocktail Stamps and the coordinating dies. This stamp set is really popular I know, but it's my first time using this set after the release and now I know why everybody loves it. The result of building three steps of stamping is amazing and so realistic.

First, I create a background for my card and I choose purple so it will contrast with the pears. I blend two tones of purple that faded through the outside. Some striped and polkadot hexagons from Quilted Hexagon Stamps are stamped here and there with the same purple inks. I love how it creates such a dynamic propotion for a simple card like this. The pears are stamped with various green dye inks and I also stamp smiley faces from Happy Harvest to add extra cuteness. And a tiny red heart in between them. Another reason why I love this set is their punny sentiments that can be mixed and match one with another. So much fun, right? Last but not least, I add purple borders around my card using Gingham Jewel Tones.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really hope you enjoy today's post. Have an amazing day!
