Sunny Studio - Bells & Baubles Shaker Ornament

samedi 9 décembre 2023

Hello there,

I was back on Sunny Studio's blog this week with this shaker ornament showcasing Bells & Baubles. As you can see, I kind of went out of my comfort zone with this gold and black color palette, I'm more of a let-throw-all-the-colors-on-one-single-card kind of girl, but I was actually inspired by my friend and fellow crafter Bobbi Lemanski who recently shared a beautiful set of black + gold + white tags, and I thought it would be a fun challenge for me.

So I started off by stamping five baubles on 80lb Neenah solar white cardstock using Lawn Fawn premium dye inks. I stamped each image twice to get a nice impression, and then used the coordinating dies to cut everything. Here are the color combinations I picked:  golden baubles: butter + sunflower + no. 2 pencil  black baubles: manatee + hippo + black licorice  toppers: no. 2 pencil.

I cut a scalloped oval frame out of black cardstock using the largest die from Scalloped Oval Mat 1 and the largest die from Stitched Oval 2. I also cut an acetate panel using the largest die from Scalloped Oval Mat 1 again, and attached that acetate panel at the back of my black scalloped frame using liquid glue. I stamped my "Merry Christmas" greeting from Bells & Baubles at the bottom of the acetate panel using white stazon ink.

I attached the baubles directly on the acetate using 1mm foam squares, and added golden threads that I secured and stuck at the top back of the frame using thin pieces of tape. I added foam strips at the back of my frame, all along the oval shape, and poured my shaker material inside the acetate window: golden sequins from my stash, and White Snowflake Confetti.

Next I created the handle for my ornament. I cut two black pieces using the smallest die from Stitched Arch, and attached both elements back to back using liquid glue. I also cut two gold mirror eyelets using a die from Sliding Window, attached one of them on the front of my handle, and the second at the back.

Using the largest die from Scalloped Oval Mat 1 again, I cut a panel out of a Classic Sunburst black paper, and attached my handle piece at the top back using liquid glue. I cut another scalloped panel out of black cardstock that I glued at the back of the other, and then stuck that panel to the foam strips to totally close my shaker ornament. To finish it nicely, I added golden thread on the handle, tied a bow using ribbon from my stash and attached it at the top of the frame using liquid glue.

Sunny Studio - Merry Mocha - Black Friday Gift w/ Purchase

jeudi 23 novembre 2023

Hello there,

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm super happy to be back on Sunny Studio's blog with this set of see-through shaker tags showcasing the adorable Merry Mocha mini stamp set. I love making tags throughout the year, but especially during the holiday season, and I thought this cup of mocha was the perfect size for tags. And what's better than gingerbread cookies to go with this delicious hot beverage?


But first let's check out the details about Sunny Studio Black Friday offer:

The Merry Mocha Stamps used today are not available for purchase this holiday season but rather will be automatically included with all retail orders of $45 or more from Sunny Studio through November 27th at Midnight PDT. Here are all the details:

+ Receive the exclusive mini "Merry Mocha" stamp set with a $45+ purchase

+ 10% of retail sales will be donated to the Maui Strong Fund with the Hawaii Community Foundation

*Please note: No discount codes are needed. All offers will be applied automatically and cannot be combined with additional discounts at checkout. Purchases are based on order subtotal, prior to shipping & tax.


To give my tags some kind of a vintage look, I stamped my images on a light kraft cardstock using an alcohol marker friendly black ink. As always I used the coordinating dies to cut them all, and colored everything using my alcohol markers, except for the white sections that I colored using a white colored pencil. So, along with the Merry Mocha cups, I stamped the gingerbread couple from Christmas Cookies, as well as the one from Baking Spirits Bright and the candy canes from that same set.

Next I worked on the tags. I started off by cutting six tag shapes out of a dark kraft cardstock using a die from Mini Mat & Tag 3, cut an opening inside each tag panel using another die from the same set, and then attached a piece of acetate at the back of each tag. I set three of those tags aside, and at the back of the three other tags, I attached foam strips all along the opening to create room for my shaker material. I added polymer clay candy cane slices inside that space, as well as clear glitter, and used the three tags I had put aside to close the three others.

I attached a cup of Merry Mocha, candy canes and a gingerbread cookie on each tag using 1mm foam squares, I also created three identical greetings using the "Eat Drink and Be Merry" sentiment from Merry Mocha. I white heat embossed three greetings on brown cardstock, and used the matching die to cut them. Next I cut three small tags out of the same light kraft cardstock as the images using a die from Wrap Around Box, and I stuck a greeting on each small tag using 1mm foam squares again. To finish my tags, I tied each small tag to a bigger one using white thread, and I created three red bows that I stuck at the top of each tag using 3mm glue dots.

Pretty Pink Posh - Christmas Cupcakes Duo

lundi 20 novembre 2023

Hi there,

I'm thrilled to be back with this duo of holiday cards showcasing the ever so cute Christmas Cupcakes by Pretty Pink Posh, and the beautiful Layered Candy Canes stencils. I started off by cutting two Eyelet Rectangles out of Strathmore bristol smooth cardstock, and I colored them using oxide inks: salvaged patina for a light blue, and spun sugar for a light pink.

Next I used the Layered Candy Canes stencils on both panels using white pigment ink first, and then festive berries oxide ink. And as for texture, I mixed some copic opaque white ink with water and used a small brush to add splatters to both panels, nothing more.

Next I stamped the six cupcakes from Christmas Cupcakes on 80lb Neenah solar white cardstock using an alcohol marker friendly black ink, cut them all using the coordinating dies, and colored everything using my alcohol markers.

I cut two smaller Eyelet Rectangles out of vellum and attached three cupcakes on each panel using 1mm foam squares. I also cut two Merry Christmas shadow greetings out of gold mirror cardstock, attached them on my panels, and then I stuck each vellum panel on a Layered Candy Canes panel using liquid glue behind the cupcakes. I attached my panels on white card bases, and finished them by adding highlights and details on the images using a white gel pen, as well as Metallic Gold pearls on each corner.
