To create the snow hill I use Woodland Borders Die and I love those faux stitches so much. I adhered the elements both with glue and foamtapes to create dimensions.

Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Week

Hi everyone! Today Pretty Pink Posh is having a themed week which is Halloween. Yeap, it's already October you guys.. time flies really fast. Is it only me or everyone elses are thinking the same? I actually don't celebrate Halloween here in Indonesia but I do really enjoy making Halloween projects sice I found it's an interesting holiday. Everyone decored and dressed up, I mean come on it must be super fun!

Let's get started..
I use the brand new stamp set called Halloween Pals which is a 3"x4" stamp set that include these adorable dressed up puppy and kitty with their own jack-o-laterns. Super cute! I fall in love with this set as soon as I saw them on the preview. They are stamped with Versafine black ink which is a perfect choice if you are crazy about watercoloring just like I do. After I finished with the coloring I use the coordinating dies to cut all the pieces.


I use the stitched pumpkins from Fall Tags Dies, I cut them three times on deep orange cardstock. As for the background, I blended Chipped Sapphire in the center part and Bundled Sage Distress Inks at the outer part. Dark background to me really adds that spooky vibes to a Halloween card. I also stamped some bats from the older stamp set called Halloween Friends with black dye ink. After I finished preparing all the elements I want, I start to arrange them all together. And last but not least are the jewels, I'm obssesed with them a little bit too much that I feel to add them on every single cards I made. LOL. Today I use the pretty Blue Lagoon Jewels that perfectly match today's card color combo.


That's all for today. And don't forget that Pretty Pink Posh is having 15% DISCOUNT on all items in their Halloween section! Don't miss it you guys, go put them in your cart before it's ended.

This stamp set is so cute and goes well with a lot of Sunny Studio previous winter set as for today's card I will the older Polar Playmates Stamp to give those little eskimos a buddy. Let's get started right away..

First, I stamped my images with a black Versafine ink and watercolor them using Distress Markers. I already knew that I need to use the igloo to complete my scene, they just belong together. Don't you think so? And a cute seal is the perfect buddy for them. After I finished with the coloring I cut all of the images using the coordinating dies. To create a snow hill I use Woodland Borders Dies that have a pretty stiched look on both side. I blended Worn Lipstick Distress Ink on the top part that will be the sky and just a tiny bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink along the edges of my snow hill.


I adhered both parts together on a card base and stamped various size snowflakes from Polar Playmates Stamp with pink dye ink. The "eskimo kisses" sentiment is stamped on a blue cardstock which I cut into a fish tail banner in the end. After that I just happily arrange my scene together with glue and foam tapes to create dimensions.

Hello everyone!
Lexa here and today is an exciting day as Sunny Studio is celebrating their third birthday.. YAY! There will be so many inspirations and beautiful creations today. So get ready and let's get started.


The new release is super adorable and I bet you'll get confused to choose which one is your favorite. Me too! I'm in doubt of which one should I pick for today's card. People say, when in doubt use them all. Haha. So here I go with these cute critters...


First, I stamp the images from Foxy Christmas Stamps and Happy Owlidays Stamp 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. Just take a look at those fine white borders around them, it makes them pops out more. I use the brand new Stitched Oval Dies for the center part. Then I blend Peacock Feather and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks on the background to create a night sky. As for the stars, I use some silver jewels from Pretty Pink Posh. Aren't they so beautiful?

The blank white part of the card seems a little bit off, so I stamped some snowflakes in light grey to match the center images. I personaly think it looks way prettier. The sentiment come from Alpaca Holiday Stamp, I curved it follow the oval line and stamped it with navy dye ink.


Here's the hopping order in case you're lost..

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.

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.
