Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Please join me in welcoming back the super sweet Mendi Yoshikawa as a guest on our blog today to showcase the brand new Sunny Studio stamps and dies! Be sure to read on and enjoy!
Hello there! It’s Mendi here today sharing four playful cards featuring some of Sunny Studio’s newest release for Fall, which includes 8 new stamp sets and coordinating dies.
I colored all my images with Copic Markers and then arranged them on a background which was inked using Mowed Lawn distress ink and my favorite jumbo dauber which I lightly faded into the white background. I then “tied” a simple red gingham bow to reinforce the farm theme and to hide the transition between the white and green backgrounds.
For my next card I used our new Happy Owl-o-ween stamps which are fun for Halloween and beyond. The set comes with six playful costumes to dress up the owl and several punny sentiments that would work for all year ’round. I used them here to create an everyday card, mixing them the accessories from our Pirate Pals set and the little Island from Island Getaway.
I cut a simple polaroid frame using my Fiskars trimmer with a 3″ x 3″ opening and an overall outside edge trimmed to 3.5″ x 4.25″. I then lightly distressed it with some tea dye distress ink and wrapped it with some jute cording threaded through a button from my craft supply, hiding the ends on the back side.
For my card base I inked up the edges with some more tea dye distress ink and stamped it with a repeating pattern using the small anchor image from Pirate Pals.
For my third card, I created another clean and simple card using the same Happy Owl-o-ween set. This time I embraced the Halloween theme using the two-piece cape, witch’s hat & wand together with the cauldron and bats from our Halloween Cuties stamps.
For my green and blue panels, I inked up my white cardstock in an ombre pattern using the jumbo dauber together with distress inks. These daubers make smoothly blending inks together without harsh lines a breeze (and believe me when I say I need all the help I can get in this department). I finished off my sentiment strip with simple stitching in my sewing machine to add a little extra visual interest to this simple card.
I finished my card with a simple hand-stitched border using a paper piercer with some embroidery floss. For my sentiment I turned to our new Cute As A Button Stamps. This versatile little set packs a big punch with 7 punny sentiments playing on the word “sew”, 2 layered buttons, a layered needle and a stitched heart, all packed in a 3×4 set.
I hope you will check out our other new sets that I didn’t have time to feature here today. We have a sweet new Pet Sympathy set, as well as a cool layering pumpkin set and a beautiful coordinating sentiment set for Fall that are wonderful additions to our line up. Thanks so much for hanging with me today. Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer! :)
