Sunny Studio - Monochrome Crisp Autumn

jeudi 16 septembre 2021

Hey there,

I am back with my first monochrome card of the season, with a vintage/sepia look, and to make it I used the new Crisp Autumn stamp set by Sunny Studio, as well as the cute kitty from Bewitching, some sunflowers from Happy Harvest, and my sentiment is from Words of gratitude.

I used Lawn Fawn dye inks to stamp my pumpkins and leaves from Crisp Autumn on kraft cardstock, and started with a first batch of pumpkins:
- 1b in pizza crust ink + 1c in doe ink ; 1d in doe ink + 1e in walnut ink
- 2b in pizza crust ink  + 2c in doe ink ; 2d in doe ink + 2e in walnut ink

For the second batch of pumpkins:
- 1a in pizza crust + 1b in doe ink + 1c in walnut ink ; 1d in walnut ink + 1e in black licorice ink
- 2a in pizza crust + 2b in doe ink + 2c in walnut ink ; 2d in walnut ink + 2e in black licorice ink

I also stamped two chestnut leaves:
- 3b in pizza crust ink + 3c in doe ink + 3d in walnut ink


Next I stamped some additional images on the same kraft cardstock using Potting Soil ink by Ranger, and used brown alcohol markers to color them.

I created a very simple background. I cut a 5,5 x 4,25' kraft panel and to give it some interest and not just have a flat panel, I scored lines every half an inch on the long side. And then I used vintage photo and ground espresso oxide inks to add contrast and texture on the edges.

I cut the images using the coordinating dies and attached everything using foam squares and glue dots. And finally I stamped my sentiment 'I'm so thankful for your friendship' from Words of Gratitude above the images

Hello Bluebird - Wilderness Adventure Mini Slimline Card

mardi 14 septembre 2021

Hello there,

I'm back with more Hello Bluebird new release inspiration showcasing the adorable Wilderness Adventure, as well as the super cool Knightley LC Alpha stamp set, my sentiment is from Leaf Play (released two years ago) and I also used the Nesting Mini Slim die set that is part of the new release as well.

I started by stamping and cutting my images from Wilderness Adventure. I picked the bear, bunny and fox, as well as a whole bunch of mountains and trees to set up my scene.

Once the coloring was done, I cut a 6 x 3,5" mini slim panel using the largest die from the Nesting Mini Slim die set, and I used washi tape to divide the panel in two sections: the sky at the top and the meadow at the bottom. I used tumbled glass and faded jeans distress inks to color the sky, and shabby shutter and peeled paint distress inks to color the meadow.


Next I stamped the word 'Friends' at the very bottom of my panel using the big letters from the Knightley LC alpha stamp set and Artichoke ink by Lawn Fawn, and then I attached the images using glue dots and foam squares. And at the end I stamped the second part of my sentiment inside the card base.

Sunny Studio - Icing Borders & Shaker Cupcake

jeudi 9 septembre 2021

Hey there,

I'm back with a new shaker card, showcasing some brand new products by Sunny Studio: the Icing borders die set, the Thank you words die set, as well as some autumnal pattern papers from the gorgeous Sweater Weather 6x6 paper pack.

I picked up a floral pattern paper to be the frame of my cupcake, and cut a plain cupcake using the biggest die from the Cupcake shape die setNext I used the second cupcake die to cut my frame: I placed and taped it in the center of the plain cupcake, and sent it to my die cutting machine to get my foral frame.

And then I cut additional elements: three cupcake pieces out of pattern papers, a plain cupcake out of acetate to create the window of my shaker, and another one out of navy blue cardstock to be the base of the cupcake.

I temporarily taped the floral frame on top of the navy blue base and I attached the dark pink icing part on the cupcake base by tucking it right up against the frame.

Next I attached the floral frame to the plain acetate cupcake to create the window, and on the front of this window, I attached the two remaining pieces of cupcake.

At the back of the window panel, I applied thin strips of foam tape on the edges. And all along the foam strips I applied powder, this way the sequins won't stick to the foam.

Next I poured a sequin mix on the cupcake base, right on the pink icing section, and then stuck my window panel on top of the cupcake base to close the shaker.


I wanted to create a custom background using the Icing Border dies so I used those dies and a striped pattern paper from the Sweater Weather pack to cut lots of icing shapes. I cut a panel out of the same striped pattern paper, and I glued each icing shape on top of the panel in a way that the panel and borders would be coordinated.

I filled the entire panel with icing borders, trimmed off the edges and stuck the panel to a pink card base, and then I attached my giant shaker cupcake on my custom background using liquid glue.


Next I cut two banners: one out of a yellow pattern paper using a die from the Sliding Window die set and one out of a blue pattern paper using a die from the Stitched Rectangles die set. I attached those banners on top of each other on the bottom section of the cupcake, and finally I cut the word 'Thanks' out of gold mirror cardstock and stuck it on top of the banners.

And this is the final result. Now I can totally see the same giant cupcake with Christmas papers, or maybe rainbow papers for a birthday. I hope it will inspire you. Thank you so much for watching, I will see you in the next video. Have a very nice day. Bye.

Spooky Card Series w/ Hello Bluebird - Boo Crew + Oxide Ink Background

 Hello there,

Hello Bluebird new release is finally here so I'm back again to celebrate it with more spooky inspiration showcasing the new Boo Crew stamp set, the gorgeous Full Moon die and the awesome Nesting A7 die set. I also picked two bats from Frightful Little Bits that was released last year, and used a die from Grassy Knoll to create a hill border.

As always I started by stamping the images using extreme black ink by My Favorite Things, I cut them all using the coordinating dies and used my alcohol markers to color everything.

After the coloring I cut all the elements to build my background: a 7 x 5" bristol panel, and a black rectangle frame that I created using the first and third largest dies from the Nesting A7 die set. I also cut a black hill border, and three black trees using the Full Moon die, three because I wanted to bring dimension to this element.

I cut a circle out of masking paper, stuck it on my panel and used some oxide inks to create a super bright and spooky Halloween sky: spiced marmalade, ripe persimon, candied apple and black soot. I applied the lightest ink around the mask, and then applied the other inks towards the edges of the paper from the lightest to the darkest.


Once I was happy with the blending, I added lots of water splatters all over the paper, and next I mixed some black soot oxide ink with water and added more splatters to the panel to bring more contrast.

I used my twizzlers to remove the mask, and then stuck the other part of the mask to cover the paper around that white circle, and I used a bit of dried marigold oxide ink to add a little bit of color to the moon.


Next I assembled everything on my oxide ink background, starting with the black frame that I stuck using black foam squares, I attached the hill border using the same foam squares, stuck my three trees on top of each other and trimmed the bottom of it to fit behind the hill border, attached that tree using liquid glue, and then I attached all my cute Halloween characters using liquid and the same black foam squares as before.

Once everything was attached, I white heat embossed my sentiment 'Hello from the boo crew' on black cardstock, trimmed it into a small banner that I stuck above the images, I stamped a few bats here and there, and as always I also added white highlights and details on the images and sky as well.

Hello Bluebird - Balloon Buddies Preview

mercredi 8 septembre 2021

Hey there,

Hello Bluebird new release will be available later today at 7pm MST, so to make you wait a little bit more, I'm back with more inspiration, and I used the new Balloon Buddies, which is absolutely not made for Halloween, but the balloons remind me of the movie 'It', so I decided to go with a black and red color palette, and to turn the little fox into Pennywide the clown.

I stamped all the images using extreme black ink by My Favorite Things, cut them all using the coordinating dies, and colored them all using my alcohol markers.


To make the balloons really pop I cut a panel using the Nesting A7 die set and created a background using hickory smoke and black soot distress inks. And once the panel was dry, I white heat embossed the phrase 'Scare up some fun' from Boo Crew at the very bottom, and I cut some letters to make the word 'Boo' using the Knightley LC alpha die set. I cut the inside out of black cardstock and the outside out of white cardstock to really make the black letters pop on the black background.

Next I attached the balloons, the fox and accessories using foam squares and liquid glue. I stuck my panel on a larger white panel to have a nice border all around it, and then attached that panel on a white card base.


I colored a tiny circle in red to make the clown nose, stuck it right in the middle of the fox face, and added highlights on the images as well as on the background. Finally I applied a bit of glossy accents on the red nose, and also on the letters to make them super shiny.
