In my mind, the clouds are literally showering hearts… I just love how quick this fun card came together! I stamped the clouds from the adorable Spring Showers stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink in my Stamp Platform so I’d get a beautiful crisp stamped image.
I then colored the clouds very simply with BV0000, BV01, and the Colorless Blender copic markers. I fussy cut the clouds and set them aside. I trimmed my patterned paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and then lined up my stitched rectangle die in the center securing it with some purple tape. I ran it through my Big Shot and then mat the rainbow polka dot hearts paper on a 3-3/8 x 4-5/8″ piece of white card stock. I was going to adhere that layer back onto the rainbow polka dot hearts paper, but when I flipped it over I saw the ombre rainbow paper side and decided to use this side.
I adhered the papers to the card using a liquid glue and then stamped the sentiment. I used a smaller rectangle die to die cut the sentiment and then trimmed off the extra from the left side. I adhered the sentiment to the card and then adhered the clouds.
I just love how sweet this card turned out and it was really so quick to make!! Be sure to stop by the SFL shop and see all the fabulous Sunny Studio Stamps products available… so many wonderful stamps, dies and papers!!
So glad you stopped by the blog today. Today’s card was created with Sunny Studio Stamps Cheerful Daisies stamp set. Looking at the stamp set alone makes me happy and then when you add color WOW!
This stamp set is what I like to refer to as a stampy stamp. A stampy stamp is a stamp set in which one must stamp in colored ink to create the image of the stamp. Gotta tell you these type of stamps are a tinge on the intimidating side to me. Now I will say that having a stamp tool is fantastic and makes it so much easier than trying to line it up free hand but Sunny Studio has also taken the extra step and beside each stamp it tells you what to use next, which I love!
The ink I used is Lawn Fawn premium dye ink. I took a lot more pics than I typically take because I wanted you to be able to see how it looks because if this becomes your first stampy stamp I wanted you all to see that it looks different. So no more chit chat. Here’s the pics…
When stamping with stampy stamps go lighter to darker and know that you may have to stamp the image several times to get full coverage. This is a beautiful stamp set and it made such a happy card! Here it is again…
I heat embossed the sentiment in white puff embossing powder, I knew I wanted it to be thick looking.
Thanks again for stopping by and spending your time with us today!
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images super quick with Copic Markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out, I used the dies to cut out ric rac and border the back panel, I cut a circle using a stitched circle die, and then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, added a few enamel dots and added just a little of the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the puppy’s bow!
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.
I’m also bringing in some distress ink and watercolor paper to do a little ink smooshing. I am using Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and bring in little Peacock Feathers for some hearts.
First, I flipped through all the beautiful pattern papers to find the one I wanted to use. Once I chose a pattern, I used a stitched rectangle die to trim my panel.
Next, I took out my non-stick mat and smooshed down some Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I added some water and pressed down my watercolor piece. I did this again then repeated the step with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I used a heat gun to dry the area and added hearts using the Distress Ink.
I stamped out the vacuum image from the stamp set with Copic friendly ink and colored the image with Copic markers. I then used the coordinating die to die cut the image. All that is left is putting the pieces together and adding some finishing touches!
We are featuring Sunny Studio Stamp’s most recent release this month.

Hello! It’s Kari from Sunshine In My Pocket.com and I’m so excited to be a guest on the Scrapping For Less blog! Today I have some cards made with the Prancing Pegasus stamp set and beautiful Fairy’s Garden paper pad.
For my first card, I inked up the background with some Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold. Then I splattered on some white pearl watercolor to give it more of a magical feel.
I stamped some of the stars from the same stamp set on the background using the same colors of Distress Oxide inks. They are a little difficult to see in the photos, but it adds a subtle detail.
I colored up the Pegasus with Copic markers and added some sparkly stickles to the wing. I die cut some clouds from my stash and added WOW! Sparkle glitter to the smaller ones.
That frame is from the diagonal paper in the paper pack and it adds just the right touch! I simply used 2 nesting rectangle dies to cut out that frame. I stamped the sentiment on strips of teal paper and popped it up with foam tape. This is for sure a “magical” birthday card that is fit for a princess!
For my second card I knew I wanted that Pegasus to be running on top of a rainbow. So I glittered up a rainbow and added it to a pink polka dot background from the Fairy’s Garden paper.
I colored the Pegasus’ mane, tail, and wing in the same rainbow colors with Copic markers. Those butterflies and leaves are cut from the paper pad as well! I was so excited to see those butterflies in there and they were so perfect for this rainbow card!
I added some clouds to the card and stamped the sentiment “For My Princess” with pink ink.
I added the Pegasus with foam tape to give it more dimension. I also folded up the butterfly wings just a little to so they look like they are flying!
I hope you enjoyed these projects today! I really loved making them. I’ll see you real soon with some more inspiration.
We have a couple of pinks, along with white, red, and even a reddish brown. I think these colors work perfectly for a Valentine’s Color Challenge! I hope you do too and that you can find some time to play along with us in the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share group on Facebook.
So… I thought it would be fun to use the Winter Fairies stamp set for a Valentine’s card… kind of show how versatile this set can be!! It doesn’t have to be just for a wintry card or Christmas card… the sweet fairies combined with some Valentine’s colors, stenciled hearts, and a perfect sentiment – BAM! I have a sweet Valentine’s card ready for my stash!
To start, I stamped the fairy with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto white card stock and colored her in with the following copic markers:
I then fussy cut her out (cutting off the star at the top of her wand) and cleaned up the edges with a Memento Tuxedo black marker. I set the fairy aside and grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. I ink smooshed some Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks. I used my Heat Tool to dry the panel and then applied some Scarlet Glitter Glaze from Brutus Monroe with a spatula over the Tim Holtz Hearts Mini Layering Stencil Set #6. I also applied some of the same glaze over the stencil onto a scrap piece of white card stock. I set it aside to dry.
While that was drying, I realized that I had forgotten about the brown in the color combination… oops! I mean, sure there’s a bit in her hair, but I wanted it in the background too so once the glitter glaze was dry I smooshed some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks on the panel. I also used my water pen to move the ink around a bit since the raised glittery hearts seemed to resist the ink. I’ll be honest… at this point, I tossed the panel in the trash. I did not like how it turned out. So I made another one… and somehow that one was worse!! Lol… I pulled the first panel out of the trash and gave it another look and decided it wasn’t terrible. I left both panels on my desk and called it a day… the next morning, I decided to go with the first panel. Fresh eyes can give you that new perspective on your creations!! I actually like the extra dimension the brown ink smooshes give to the card!
I trimmed down my panel to 3-7/8 x 5-1/8″ and adhered it to a Real Red mat measuring 4 x 5-1/4″. I then adhered that to a Passionate Pink card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and adhered the entire card front to a white card base. I popped up the fairy using foam squares and then popped up the fussy cut glitter glazed heart that I had created on the scrap piece of white card stock to take the place of the star on the fairies wand. To finish off the card, I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the Sentiments of the Heart stamp set that was included in the Banana Split subscription of the December 2019 Sending Love card kit with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed an ultra fine white embossing powder. I die cut the sentiment with my go-to banners die and popped it up on the card. I’m so happy with how this card turned out! I hope you like it too!
