Fresh & Fruity with Sunny Studio Stamps
- Fun Summer Card Ideas -

Summer crafts can be so fun, especially with the sweet images from Sunny Studio Stamps. Today I'm sharing 3 cards I created with stamps from the set Fresh & Fruity... It's so fun and versatile! My favorite thing about these stamps is all the options you get so you can add little faces and other details to your images.





I created patterned backgrounds with the fun fruit images which I heat embossed in glitter gold and white. I went for an ombre look on 2 cards and I decided to watercolor the strawberries on my first card with distress inks. I also foiled the edges on my second card and discover the Thermoweb's Champagne transfer foil matches perfectly the tone of gold on Clearsnap's Glitter Gold embossing powder.


Sunny Studio Stamps has a brand new release and I already picked my favorites! They also have fun, versatile dies that go along perfect with their sweet stamps. Make sure you head to their blog (that will be featuring my cards today) and shop to check out their collection. If you stop by the blog I invite you to leave Mendi (the designer behind all these sweet stamps) a comment too!

That's it for now. Hope you are enjoying your Summer so far! Until next time... Stay crafty.

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
