Sunny Studio Guest Designer

I’m Guest Designing on the Sunny Studio blog this weekend. I got to play around with some of the new Sunny Studio 2016 Winter Release. There are some awesome stamps and dies in this release – be sure to check it out here.

First up I used the Merry Sentiments stamp set and matching die to create a colourful string of lights. The tree branch is from the Holiday Style stamp set and I stamped it several times in two different shades of green. I used the Merry Word die as part of the sentiment.

Next up is another Christmas card using the same sets as before. To add some dimension to the card, I created some ornament hangers with silver thread. To compliment this, I silver heat embossed the sentiment.

Lastly, I have used the Small Holly die (which is a free gift with every purchase from the Sunny Studio store while stocks last) to create a simple embellishment for a gift tin. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Merry Sentiments Stamp set onto some vinyl adhesive stickers.

Sunny Studio Guest Designer

Hello. Yesterday I had the privilege of being a Guest Designer on the Sunny Studio blog. I was super fun to ink up some of the latest Autumn release stamp sets – lots of class and cuteness. I recommend that you check out the Sunny Studio store for all their great products if you haven’t already.

This first card uses the Autumn Splendor stamp set. It was fun mixing different colours to create the two-toned leaves. The sentiment was stamped onto a Sunny Studio Stitched Heart shaped die.

Grateful for you Sunny Studio | Marion Vagg

Next up I used the Woodsy Creatures stamp set to create this hilarious bunch of selfie-taking critters! I gave this to a colleague at work.

Sending Big Hugs and a Farewell – Sunny Studio

Sadly, today is my last post as a designer for Sunny Studio. I have had a blast being on the Design Team for the last 6 months. I am very thankful to Mendi, the owner and designer of all the Sunny Studio products, for allowing me the opportunity to play and have fun with her super sweet products.

This week the team are showcasing the Sunny Borders stamp set. I have used the chevron stamp out of this set to create a fun backdrop for the cute critters out of the Sending My Love stamp set.

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.

Thanks – Sunny Studio

I’m a little late with my Sunny Studio card, but I have just been sooo busy and feel like I have been chasing my tail all week. Have you had week’s like that? It doesn’t help that hubster is overseas for work so I’m juggling the single mum gig as well!

Anyway, you came here for a card, and a card I have for you – one that I hope will brighten your day. It uses the Sunny Studio Backyard Bugs and Sunny Sentiment stamp sets.

Thanks Sunny Studio | Marion Vagg

I stamped the images and coloured them in with Copic markers. I then arranged them into a scene and used a Lawn Fawn Polaroid die (Say Cheese) to contain the scene. The background stripey paper is some patterned paper from my stash.

Thanks - detail | Marion Vagg
