Sunny Studio Stamps 3rd Birthday Blog Hop


Hello sweet friends and welcome to the Sunny Studio Stamps 3rd Birthday Blog Hop! I am happy you are stopping by! If you followed the blog hop order, you should have arrived from the amazing Nina-Marie Trapani. I am sure she wowed you with her wonderful creations! If you would like to start the blog hop from the beginning, you can go here to the Sunny Studio Blog.

Today we will show you samples using the awesome new release! I can't decide what I like best, it seems that every time I think this is the best release ever, Mendi comes up with even more :)

I will start with my card and will tell you about all the fun details of our blog hop at the bottom of this post, so stay with me :)

Here is what I came up with for today:


Oh, I love this owl! I started with a white card base and embossed the front with the Dapper Diamonds Embossing Folder. Then I stamped the images from Happy Owlidays, colored them with Copics and die-cut everything with the matching dies. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of green cardstock, trimmed it and adhered all the pieces to the card with foam tape.


To finish the card off, I added clear sequins for a bit of festive bling.

I hope you like my card! These embossing folders add so much texture, it makes a clean & simple card more interesting. Now some important info for you!

Besides trying to inspire you today, you will get the chance to win a $25 gift code to Sunny Studio on my blog and every single blog taking part in today's blog hop. Just leave a comment on every blog before Monday, October 1st 11:59 pm PDT. AND Sunny Studio is offering 15% off on all retail orders using the code "CELEBRATE" through October 1st.
