Hello Sunshine and Happy Birthday – Sunny Studio

I’ve got 2 cards over on the Sunny Studio blog today. The first one uses a set called Sunny Sentiments. It is one of my favourite sets – it has some greats fonts. I masked off a strip and blended in some distress inks. To create the dots, I used a stencil and removed some ink with a baby wipe.

This second card was really fun to make. I had fun mixing and matching different sets – Birthday Smiles, Bundled Up and Sending My Love stamp sets.

Blow Me Down – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I’m popping in with a card that was on the Jane’s Doodles blog earlier this week. It uses the Ahoy stamp set. I did some masking and ink blending to create the sand and water. The images were coloured with Copic markers, then I fussy cut round them before adhering some of them with foam dimensionals.

The school holidays are winding down and I have to start back at school Thursday week. The summer holidays are nearly over. We did manage to get away and we went to Melbourne for 4 nights. It was fun exploring the city and surrounds. And the food we ate! Well Melbourne, you know how to do food. I put up some photos over on Instagram if you are interested – just search for @marionvagg.

Sending Sweet Birthday Wishes – Sunny Studio

Hello. I’m popping in really quickly with a chocolate wrapper project that is up on the Sunny Studio blog. It uses the newly released Sending My Love stamp set.

The bear is coloured with Copic Markers and I added some red Stickles to the heart for some shine. The wrap slips on and off very easily. I may have to make a few more of these and can change up the sentiment as there are loads of different options in the set. Make sure you check it out here.

Jane’s Doodles Release Blog Hop

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! Today is the release blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. You should have arrived from Zrinka’s blog.

Today, two new sets are being released into the store and they are Rain or Shine and Ahoy! Once again, Jane has done an amazing job at designing these sets. I find her stamps so easy to create cute little scenes with them.

Rain or Shine

Ahoy!

Jane's Doodles Ahoy!

First up I’ve created a one layer card using the Rain or Shine set.

I added two layers of Glossy Accents to the umbrella for lots of dimension. Unfortunately the white dots I drew on the umbrella got a little lost underneath all of that shine.

Next up is a card using the Ahoy! stamp set. I had a lot of fun colouring these images (with Copics) and creating this scene. It’s going to be a birthday card for my daughter who turns 6 in December. She is very much a tom boy and loves all things pirates, so this card is perfect for her. It hasn’t really shown up in the photo very well, but there is a very lightly sponged blue sky with clouds. If you squint you may see some of it – it is much better in real life.

Purrfect Birthday – Sunny Studio

I’m back with a really quick and simple technique using some Sunny Studio products. You can see my post here. I used the Furever Friends stamp set and its coordinating dies, which have some really cute cat images.

If you are not confident with colouring images, or like me, was running short on time, then maybe this could be a technique for you to try. Instead of placing the colour onto my images, I created a really vibrant watercolour background with distress inks. I love the contrast.

To get the background to be so vibrant, I added several layers of Distress inks, making sure to heat set between each application. The colours used from the top down were Barn Door, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, a mixture of Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey and Mustard Seed.

The black sentiment strip tied the whole project together. I love how it turned out – but my daughter just couldn’t understand why I didn’t colour in the cats!
