Sunny Studio 4th Birthday Blog Hop

*This is my second post of the day, please see below for my Clearly Besotted STAMPtember post*
 
Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Sunny Studio today to celebrate their 4th birthday with a fun blog hop. Sunny Studio are such an amazing company. Mendi, the owner, is an amazing woman and I am honoured to be celebrating their birthday with them today. The new holiday release goes live on the 27th September, but as part of the celebrations, you can pre-order the new products today.
 

My first project uses the adorable new Merry Mice set. How cute is that Christmas tree made from cheese? Love it! I started off my card by stamping the tree, present and two of the mice from the Sunny Studio Merry Mice Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and then they were cut out using the coordinating dies.
 
 
I took a panel of watercolour paper and masked off the lower part. I then blended Distress Ink on to the top portion. I used Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch for a bright blue sky. I then splattered on some water to create some interest and let it sit to dry. Once dry, The panel was added flat to a white A2 card base with tape runner and I added snow to the sky with a white gel pen.
 
 
I took the sentiment from the Sunny Studio Merry Mice Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip, adding a banner end, and then adhered to the card with foam tape. The tree and present were added on top with tape runner and the mice added with foam tape.
 

My second project uses the gorgeous new Layered Poinsettia Die, along with the sentiment from the Merry Mice set. I started off the tags by cutting out the Sunny Studio Layered Poinsettia Die. I decided to create one red flower and one blue. I used four shades of each colour of cardstock. The larger petals were cut from a darker shade, moving towards the smallest petals cut from the lightest shade.
 
 
I did add some ink blending to each petal but I apologise that I didn't keep track of which colours I used as I was just grabbing them as I went. I tried to use a slightly darker shade than the cardstock. It doesn't show up much, but it does add to the overall look, I think. For the red poinsettia, I cut the inside piece from a mustard cardstock and I used silver glitter paper for the blue one. I also used foam tape on the red flower but kept the blue one flatter with liquid glue.
 
 
I took the Sunny Studio Build A Tag 1 Dies and cut the tags from the new Sunny Studio Subtle Grey Tones Paper Pad, as well as white cardstock. The paper tag was adhered to the white one for more stability (and to be able to write on the back). The sentiments from the Sunny Studio Merry Mice Stamp Set were white heat embossed on black cardstock, cut out and added to the tags with foam tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tags and added sparkle pen to the poinsettias, as well as iridescent jewels to the centres.

  10. Dear Michelle
    Love the card and the tags. I just have aquestion for you. Wen u splatter water on the card does it warp. To avoid it do you use a heavier card stock. Just curious. Love the mice set too. blessings

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comment, Surekha. I always use watercolour paper when splattering with water on my cards. I usually use Tim Holtz watercolour paper as it is quite bright white and the inks blend well on it. I hope that helps :)
