Hey everyone! Today I am sharing two more cards I have made using Sunny Studio stamps. They are my latest find, and I am having so much fun playing with them! As any of you know, we recently moved to a suburb of Reno, NV. We plan on staying about a year, and then God willing...go back to California or Arizona. Many of you have asked me if I have a craft room. I feel so blessed, for the first time I have a craft room on the main floor! It is just a small office, but I absolutely love it! It makes it much easier to find some time in the evening to craft, and still be part of the family...not to mention it won't get so cold in the winter, as my old craft room did in our basement. I still have many crafty items lost in the sea of boxes yet to be unpacked. After all the time we spent on our extended vacation/adventure traveling through the Pacific Northwest...I managed to forget how much time goes into cooking, cleaning and caring for my husband and three kiddos...ugh, the laundry alone never ends! Lol But, it's still much easier to squeeze in a few minutes here and there with the craft room being right next to my kitchen. ;)
So onto my cards! I have two cards, and I will be sharing both with the Sunny Studio Blog Challenge. Now that I received my order from the new release, I was able to do what I love most...use a bunch of different stamp sets in a a new way! But first, I couldn't quite put the Autumn Splendor stamp set away yet. I really love it! This time, I stamped my images on Tim Hotlz watercolor paper so I would get all the texture...but still have a white background. (If anyone has found a high quality watercolor paper which is bright white, I would love to know the brand and where you got it~Help a crafty friend out!) I inked up the images with distress inks. Then I did some rock and roll inking to get some darker colored edges. I used a shimmer brush to blend the distress inks a bit and add some sparkle. After they were dry, I cut them all out and die cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I added the stems with gold pigment ink. I love how this stamp set has the solid berries, with outline stamps to match...I stamped both in gold, stamping the top layer twice to get a deeper color. I used my MISTI to make it super easy. Then I assembled the leaves and berries on the card, using foam tape for dimension on some of the leaves. I stamped the sentiment in Magenta pigment ink from Avery Elle. Then I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Neat & Tangled.
For my second card...I was back to my usual style. I used a lot of different stamps, I will list them all below my card. I stamped out all of the cute animals and other images, and colored them with Copic markers. I used Wink of Stella to accent the images, and added detailing with gel markers also. I cut them all out with my ScanNcut, as I don't have any of the dies yet sadly. Then I went on to die cutting my card base. I used the oval dies from Lawn fawn to cut my top panel from Lawn Fawn paper, and the card base. Then I used the oval piece I had cut out of the card base for the inside. I blended a bit of pigment inks on the oval for some background color. Then I stamped the sentiment, making sure it would show when the card was open and closed. I attached all the animals popping them up on foam tape, so their tails could be placed behind them. Then I placed the baked goods in their arms. I placed all the images on the inside of the card, so they would peek out of the front how I liked it. It was a pretty simple card to make, and I just love foxes, so now I've fallen in love with these stamp sets as well!
