May’s Theme for the month is Myths and Legends
Inspiration from Teresa
I thought I would leave you today with a little bit of inspiration and a story. My absolute favorite flowers are tulips…unfortunately I live in Florida and tulips won’t grow here so I gravitate toward tulip stamps! I used the stamp set called “Timeless Tulips” from Sunny Studio Stamps to create this card. The tulips are as timeless as the myths and legends we will present this month through our card designs.
Hello, it’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a super cute card featuring several products from Sunny Studio Stamps’ newest release. You can find these products at Scrappingforless.com.
I used the Cruising Critters stamp set, the Spring Sunburst 6×6 paper pad and the Heartstring Border Dies to create my card. After stamping my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink I colored the image with my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers (Amazon). I die cut a heart border and mounted the image panel onto the striped pattern paper with Gina K Designs Foam Adhesive. The body of the vehicle was stamped on pattern paper and fussy cut so that I could paper piece it in place.
I used a Molotow Chrome Marker (Amazon) to color in the shiny chrome parts of the vehicle like the fenders on the wheel wells and the hub caps.
The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
It’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less Blog with a card and tag featuring a stamp set from one of December’s Focus companies, Sunny Studio Stamps. I used my Distress Oxide Inks to stamp the pine branches, the bell and the bow. I used the MFT A2 Stitched rectangle dies to layer up the panels of cardstock on the Sunny Studio pattern paper from their Holiday Cheer 6x6 paper pad. After layering the stamped panel on brown cardstock and foam tape the card is done. Simple and pretty.

With my left over paper scraps from making the card, I went ahead and made a quick tag. I colored up the little girl from the Eskimo Kisses stamp set with my Copic Markers. Katie will be featuring this cute Eskimo Kisses stamp set next week, look for her adorable project then.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a card made using a stamp set from Sunny Studios “Home Sweet Gnome”! I love gnomes so I was super excited to be able to make a card with this set! I also used the Knock on Wood Lawn Fawn paper pad. You can head over to Scrapping for Less to pick up yours at a great price. Be sure to check out my video for all the details HERE!
To make this card I did a lot of masking! A LOT!
I stamped and masked the images on the largest die cut circle I have about 4 inches. Next, I used distress oxides, a cloud and hillside stencils to add some color to the background. I colored the images with Copic markers and then used a smaller smaller circle die on the front panel. I popped the panel up with some foam tape and put it over the larger circle directly on to the card. I cut a 1/2 inch strip for the sentiment and then added sequins from a past SFL FOTM card kit and a purple bow from some ribbon.
Hello Everyone! I need a card to send out this coming Saturday so I thought the sentiment from the Chickie Baby Stamp set by Sunny Studio would be perfect. “From one Chick to another” and it’s that time of year where some of us start to get a little spring fever!
I also wanted to bring in bright colors and spring paper so I am using pattern paper from the Spring Fling 6×6 paper pad also from Sunny Studio.
I couldn’t choose which papers to use so I am using a few and reaching for a card sketch. This is from one of the December 2019 SFL Flavor of the Month Card Sketches that you can download. Click Here if you want to check those out; you can click on downloads and see the drop down menu for different years.
I trimmed down my pattern paper following the sketch and stamped a scene onto watercolor paper. I chose Arteza Real Brush pens to color.
I wanted my sentiment on the scene and not as shown on the sketch so I brought in some ribbon. I also have to stop hoarding my enamel dots and decided to grab these white ones in a small, medium and large. To finish my card I used some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on the 2 chicks and flowers.
Thanks So Much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a card made with the Sunny Studio Home Sweet Gnome Stamp Set. I colored these little cuties with Copic Markers and all of the papers used were from the Lawn Fawn 6X6 paper pad Knock On Wood. I used the Lawn Fawn die sets Spring Sprig ,, Stitched Hillside Pop Up, and Picket Fence border the Paper Smooches Loopy Leaf die, and a stitched circle die. For the sentiments I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I finished off the card with some Nuvo Dream Drops in Dragon Scales. Check out the video HERE for all the details.
Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Sunny Studio Stamps “Summer Picnic” and Echo Park’s 6x6 “Good Day Sunshine” paper pad! This month’s theme uses products that focus on celebrating the outdoors, nature, camping, and being under the stars!
Here is what I created:
I love sketches! I have a few favorites that I check out every week. As I was getting ready to create this card, I had no idea what I was going to make. Sketches to the rescue! I started (and finished) with Sketch Saturday #572!
Not all of our cards need to take hours, sometimes you just need a quick card to say Hey! This card is a standard A2 size card or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch. I cut out a piece of the galaxy paper to 4 X 5 1/4 for the front panel, I used a circle die to cut out a piece of scrap patterned scrap paper, I did end up taking another scrap piece of cardstock die-cut it with the same circle just to give it some more stability. Then I added the lounge chair sticker to the die cut circle and a sentiment sticker that says “On Lake Time”. On the inside I used the sentiment stamp “is my favorite place to be from Critter Campout! And that’s it, easy peasy!
Fall is my favorite season! Living in Florida it’s not because of the weather, although if you’ve lived in Florida long enough you do notice a change in the air but it just doesn’t qualify as a season for us. What I love about Fall are the decorations, the colors, the changing leaves (pictures mostly), the flavors and for me personally the reminder that the holidays are on the way.
While making this card I remember being downright giddy because when it comes to kid’s clothing ALL colors come in to play! Bright, fun, funky and I was so excited to get to work on these images. Recently when it’s time to color people images I make a concerted effort to not make them all the same. I am intimidated when it comes to coloring different ethnicities but I have a big desire to do so. That of course means practice, practice, practice and being brave when choosing colors I may not be used to blending. So I held my breath just a bit and stepped out of my comfort zone and I am so glad I did!
I love this Fall Kiddos stamp set from Sunny Studio, this is the second card and post I am doing with this set, really great images! These kids look like they are just having the most fun day and exude happiness. I cannot wait to send this card to someone I love. I’ve been a bit chatty in this post so I will give you a quick run down for what I did with this card:
used Doodlebug Design Flea Market 6×6 paper pad for background. The flowered pattern is 5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, the cloud paper is 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″, and the 2 strips of orange paper with the leaves pattern on it is 5 1/4″ x 1/2″, the card base I put it on and what became the frame for this little scene is 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored and folded at 5 1/2″ to create this landscape card
