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!

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.

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!

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a versatile brand new dies from Sunny Studio called Comic Strip Everyday Dies. As it's name, it literally looks like a comic strip which you can use anytime, you can use it potrait or landscape, the only limit is your imagination. Let's get started...


First, I cut all the elements in the set and watercolor each pieces with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor pallete. I love the vibrant colors it gave me. I know that it's a little bit tricky with all those tiny pieces but here's the tips I can give you, don't pop out all of the pieces as soon as you cut them. I find it easier to color them first before. Despite of that, I enjoy put all the pieces together and build up the little scene on every squares.To create the background, I use the same watercolor. It's so much fun! I use the sentiment from the older set called Happy Home Stamps to complete my card. How do you like the watercolor look on this card? Other idea is to use solid color cardstocks or patterned paper for every elements. I'd love to see how imaginative you could be. Here's the closer look of my card, I personally love it..

I pair it with the cutest Home Sweet Gnome Stamps this time. Even if you're not a gnomes fan, make sure to check this one out because it's too cute to be missed.

First, I want to make a little scene with these gnomes in it. I cut 3"x4" watercolor paper and start to paint the grass and also the sky.

After I finished with the coloring I cut them with the coordinating dies. Clean cut images always make me happy. I even love the pun "gnome one makes me smile like you do", so sweet yet fun!



On the back, I blend the same Mowed Lawn Distress Inks and stamp a hidden setiment from Happy Thoughts Stamp and add little hearts next to it. That's all for today! I'm so happy with the final result, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Have a wonderful day and see you next time.

I just love this kind of simple yet surprising greeting cards, they will make anyone's day. Don't you think so?

I keep the front card simple and adorable, I use the turqoise polkadots patterned paper from Polka-Dot Parade just because polkadot is life. Yes, I love it that much. I create a circle panel with basic dies then blend Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. I also stamp some bubbles with matching dye inks on the background. All the images are stamped with Versafine black ink and watercolored with Distress Markers like I always do. I curve the sentiment and stamp it on the bottom part of the circle. The adorable turtle along with his little friends bring two baloons for someone inside this card..


Ok, this is the most exciting part... when you open the card, it creates a shadow box inside. Look who's here? The little mermaid and her little fellas.
