Sunny Studio Stamps – Summer Release Inspiration

April 30, 2022

Hello crafty friends! I am thrilled to be guest designing today with the latest Sunny Studios Stamps release! I absolutely LOVE this new release and I’ve created a number of projects to quickly share with you today.

Affiliated product links can be found at the bottom of this post at no extra cost to you.

All of my images for each project were stamped onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored with Copic Markers, and die cut (when needed) with their coordinating die sets.

For my first three projects, I used the adorable new Baby Elephants Stamp Set along with the Baby Elephants Die Set.

For my first project, I created a slimline card by combining my images with the Slimline Scalloped Frame Die Set as well as the Slimline Nature Border Dies. I diecut my grass piece from some smooth white card stock and blended it with some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink for a pop of green.

I also blended my background sky with a mix of Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. After stamping my sentiment, I adhered all of my images with some 3D foam adhesive squares for added dimension.

For my next project, I created a fun one-layered card using only one elephant and the umbrella from the set. I first stamped my elephant onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then stamped it again onto a piece of Gina K Designs Masking Magic Sheets. I then fussy cut my masking piece and then placed the adhesive mask over my elephant prior to stamping the umbrella. I then masked the umbrella and blended the background with some Stormy Sky, Blueprint Sketch, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks.

I used a water brush to loosely “paint” in some rain and then added some white accents using a white gel pen to emphasize the rain. My sentiment came from the Spring Showers Stamp Set.

My third project is another one-layer scene that I die cut using the scalloped die from the Frilly Frames Hexagon Die Set. I then adhered this piece to an A2 sized dark blue card base. For my image itself, I used the same masking method that I used above and die cut a large circle from another piece of masking paper.

I then placed this handmade stencil on top of my masked elephant and blended the circular area with Cracked Pistachio, Picked Raspberry, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks to create a galaxy sky. Once I was finished blending, I lightly splattered the ink-blended area with some diluted opaque white acrylic paint to resemble stars.

Lastly, I created a fun mini slimline box card from scratch to create a beach-themed wedding scene. I combined the new Wedded Bliss Stamp Set and Wedded Bliss Die Set along with the Passionate Penguins Stamp and Die Sets. I love how easily these sets coordinate with each other! I also used the new Ocean View Stamp Set and Ocean View Die Set to create my background and added another palm tree from the Seasonal Trees Stamps and Dies.

I also used the Slimline Nature Border Dies again to create some sandy beach slopes for the inside of my box card. For these pieces, I cut them from white card stock and blended them with some Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. I blended some Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink for my sky and lastly added a cute little bouquet of flowers (caught by the adorable penguin on the lower right) from the Love Monkey Stamps and Dies.

    Hi Rachel, that little elephant in the rain is a perfect depiction of Michigan right now! We have had so much rain and our temp’s are only reaching the 50’s. This release has so many cute things. I’m definitely thinking of box cards. Love the wedded bliss, adorable. TFS
