Oceans of Joy - Sunny Studio

Hi Everyone!

I'm here to share a new card that I've created with Sunny Studio Stamp's summer release! You can shop them HERE and if you want some amazing inspirations from the awesome Sunny Team you should pop over to their blog HERE

For today I've been playing with a fun set called Oceans of joy. I made a cardbase and two panels to create a window - one from cardstock and one from vellum - in the one cut from vellum the circle cut is smaller to create dimension and decorative edge/frame to the window. Before I adhered the window panel I embossed a piece of cardstock with a wavy pattern and added it to the cardbase as a background for the window.
I stamped colored and fuzzy cut the cute whale and adhered him to the center of the window with foam adhesive.

Magical Mermaids - Sunny Studio

Hi Everyone!

I'm here to share a new card that I've created with Sunny Studio Stamp's summer release! You can shop them HERE and if you want some amazing inspirations from the awesome Sunny Team you should pop over to their blog HERE


Today I used the super adorable mermaid set called Magical Mermaids. I stamped the mermaid first and them masked her before stamping the rock. When that was done I colored my image with copic markers.
I made a cardbase from white cardstock and trimmed a panel that was slightly smaller and adhered that to the base with foam adhesive. I then diecut a stitched rectangle that I inked with distress ink and used that as a background panel for my mermaid. I cut a speachbubble from white cardstock and stamped my sentiments before adhering everything to the card with foam adhesive.
