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!

Sunny Studio : Watercolor Comic Strip

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..

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy today's card as much as I do and have an amazing day!

Sunny Studio : Warm Wishes

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a warm hue greeting card showcasing the fall release Happy Harvest Stamps and the coordinating dies. It's August already, does time really flies or is it just me? Some of you may feel the weather starts to change. I bet it's really beautiful on fall.

First I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink on watercolor paper and use Distress Markers to color all the images. After I finished with the coloring, I use both coordinating dies to cut all of the images. The crisp white borders around them is so satisfying. The Happy Harvest really goes well with Fall Kiddos Stamps, they compliment each other to create a super adorable scene. I use Fall Flicks Filmstrip Dies to frame all the scenes together. I love how festive and fun it looks like. For the background of the scene I blend some Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade. The brown woodgrain patterned paper from Amazing Argyle Paperpad looks great with everything I've finished. Don't you think so? Here's a closer look to show you all the layers and details on my card.

That's all for today, I hope you enjoy today's post and have an amazing day!

Sunny Studio : Sliding Window Card

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with an interactive card using Sunny Studio's brand new dies called Sliding Window Dies which is has been everyone's favorite since the release. 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. I use Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks for the watercolor, just simply scribble them on acrylic block/piece of plastic and add some waters. When I'm happy with the scene, I adhere it to the bottom part of the sliding window and they look super cute! I stamped the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. 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.

Sunny Studio Fall Slider Card

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a slider card featuring the brand new products from Sunny Studio. You must be agree with me that this release is amazing. So many innovative dies and wide range of adorable stamps. One of my favorite is Fall Kiddos, this stamp set also works so well with other ones as you gonna see in today's card.

With Sliding Window Dies you can create interactive cards in an easier way. It has extra tag dies inside the set too. First, I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After finished with the coloring I cut each images with the coordinating dies. A little tips from me, you will need the tree dies from Happy Harvest stamp set just because you want to make your life easier. LOL. The coordinating dies cut very detailed to every little space in between the brances. I use the brand new Preppy Prints and Amazing Argyle paper pad to show you how amazing this patterned papers from Sunny Studio are. Love the bright and subtle colors, of course the quality is no doubt. Plus they coordinate so well together, you don't have to think much then.

Here's the closer look if you pull out the tab, it'll show you a hidden message. I especially love the wood grain patterned paper, so beautiful.

As if there are not enough suprises, you can create another one on top part of the card. This sweet little girl is popping up to say hello with sunflowers beside her.

And here's how the card looks when it's closed. You can easily put this interactive card inside a normal envelope and mail them. It's so perfect right?
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy today's inspiration and get creative soon. Have an amazing day to you and your beloved ones!

Sunny Studio : Pizza My Heart

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a very pun card using Fast Food Fun stamps and the coordinating dies. Let's get started..

First, I cut a piece of watercolor paper and use Distress Inks to create the background. I scribble some Candied Apple and Spiced Marmalade on an acrylic block then spray some water to it. After that I press it to the watercolor paper until I satisfied with it. To fast speeding the proccess I use heat gun to dry the watercolor splash. I also add some polkadots in the background use Background Basics stamp and pink embossing powder, it adds textures to my card.
I stamped the pizzas three times with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring, I use the coordinating dies to cut them. It makes me crave some pizzas right now. Then I stamp the sentiment in the bottom part with the exact same black ink. The golden hearts are added for more sparkle and fun. Here's a closer look of my card.
