My post today is part of a blog hop with giveaway - stay tuned for the details at the end of this post.

I have four cards to share with you today. My first card features the Be Strong stamp set along with the coordinating dies and stencils along with the Perfect Sentiments stamps, dies and the hot foil plate. I foiled the sentiment using gold foil onto white cardstock using Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine. The result is amazing :)

I started by applying the Apricot ink to the Spellbinders journey gel press. Using the brayer I spread the ink evenly and took a print onto a white cardstock. I stamped the images onto white cardstock once and also white heat embossed onto vellum. Then I used the layering stencils and sponged Indian Summer, Morning Sky inks to the images on white card. Die-cut all the images and arrange onto the panel.

I foiled the sentiment using the glimmer machine, die-cut. Adhere to the card. To finish, I added some clear crystals.

My second card features, It's a new Day Floral stamps, dies along with the Perfect Sentiments stamp, dies and hot foil plate. I also used the Leafy Squares Slim stencils and Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles.

I started by creating a watercolor mat layer by using the leafy square stencil to apply some crackle embossing paste. Once dry, I added some watercolor. Stamp the images using versamark ink, add WOW! White opaque embossing powder and heat set. I then used Altenew watercolors to color the images, die-cut. Adhere the floral cluster to the mat layer. Die-cut the pink frame using scalloped rectangle, adhere the mat layer to it and then adhere this to the card.
Foil the sentiment adhere to a pink die-cut slightly offset. To finish, I added some nuvo drops.

The third card features, It's a new Day Floral stamps, dies and stencils along with the Perfect Sentiments stamp, dies and hot foil plate. I also used the Leafy Squares Slim stencil.
Here I started by sponging the sparkling rose ink through the Leafy Squares stencil onto an rustic cream card. I then sponged the same ink to the edges.
Stamp the images onto white card using versamark ink, sprinkle WOW! metallic gold embossing powder, heat set.
Apply the Fairy Dust and Indian Oasis inks through the layering stencils, die-cut. Add some more details using pencil colors. Assemble the cluster, flick gold and black color.
Foil the sentiment using gold, die-cut and adhere to the card. to finish, add gold floss and some nuvo drops.

My last card features the Floral Bunch stamp set, dies and the layering stencils along with the Perfect Sentiments stamp and dies. I also used the Leafy stencil.

Stamp the image twice onto white cardstock. Sponge the Fairy Dust, Indian Oasis and yellow inks through the layering stencils. Die-cut the image. Sponge a mat layer using Morning Sky inks, sponge some black ink to the edges. Sponge black ink through the Leafy Squares stencils. Adhere the floral image using 3D foam.

Heffy Doodle - Popping by! Card

Hello Heffy Doodlers! I am on Heffy Doodle blog today, sharing a fun and cute slimline card using the newest release products. Have you checked it out yet? I can assure you that you are gonna LOVE the full release :) I also made an envelope to go with my card using the new Envelope die.

To start, I made a cardbase using Oyster Shell cardstock. I then used the slimline Mini Mail Dies and die-cut the postage mat layer and adhere to the cardbase. Stamp the sentiment from the Popping By stamp set.

Now I stamped the Panda from the Pandastic Painters stamp set, balloons from the Popping By stamp set onto the alcohol friendly cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink. Color using copic markers. Die-cut using the coordinating dies.

Die-cut the small envelops, sponge distress oxide inks in rainbow colors. , flick white and gold paint. Let these dry. Meanwhile die-cut the tiny hearts using white paper. Fold the envelops using the score lines as guide and adhere the heart on the flap.

I adhered the envelops to the card. Open the flap of the pink envelope and insert the panda. Adhere the balloons.

Die-cut the word "HI" twice. Once using the white card and also a gold card. Adhere the white over the gold slightly offset. Adhere to the card. To finish, add the white gel pen detail to the balloons and apply some spectrum noir clear sparkle pen. And the card is ready.

Now to create the matching envelope, I used the Slimline Envelope#10 dies to die-cut a lemon yellow cardstock. I then sponged dried marigold distress oxide ink through the Aint So Plaid stencil to the lower horizontal panel on the back. Score the lines and assemble the envelope.

Sunny Studio - Shaped Sweet Wishes Card

Hello everyone!I am on Sunny Studio blog sharing a shaped card. I love creating shaped cards and this new Cupcake Die is the perfect size. You can adhere it to a standard US card size or create a shaped card perfect to go in the US size envelope.

To start, I die-cut two white cupcake base panels to create the cardbase. Score one of the pieces from top to make the shape card and adhere this to the back of the front panel . The score line will help the card to stand.

Die-cut all the parts of the cupcake. I decided to make rainbow color frosting as I recently made a rainbow layered cake for my daughters birthday :) Spray this with Imagine sparkle spray. I made the cake part chocolate by coloring it with brown copic markers. I then sponged some inks to create the wrapper and added some white dots to keep the whimsical theme going :)

I then colored the candle using copic markers. Adhere the flame and add some glossy accents. Color the sprinkles in chocolate, add glossy accent and adhere to the frosting.

Stamp the fairy from the Garden Fairy Stamp set, color, die-cut using the coordinating dies. Adhere to the cupcake as if the fairy is putting the candle onto the cake.

Stamp the sentiment from the Candy Shoppe stamp set, die-cut the word Sweet using the coordinating dies. Adhere to the card.

To finish, I added some Iridescent Jewels to the frosting.

Try creating shaped cards with any supplies you might have and tag sunny studio on social media. We would love to see your creations. Thanks for dropping by!
