Sunny Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Sunny Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Tammy's blog and you have reached the final stop of the Blog Hop! If you would like to start from the beginning, you can go to the Sunny Studio Blog to find the full Blog Hop order.

I will tell you about all the details and prizes at the bottom of this post, but first comes my card.

Mendi has come up with a wonderful new release and I loved playing with all the new goodies! Today I created a summer-winter-fusion birthday card for you:

I started with a slimline card base and inked the background with Distress Ink. Then I die-cut the Slimline Nature Borders, inked them and adhered them to the card. Now I stamped all the images, using the adorable new Surfing Santa along with the pineapples from Fabulous Flamingos and the palm trees from Sending Sunshine and Seasonal Trees. I colored everything with Copics, die-cut the elements with the matching dies and adhered the pieces to my card, popping-up some with foam tape. Lastly, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiments onto black and red cardstock and adhered the strips.

Isn't this Santa hilarious? I love this cute little set. Now to the fun details of today's blog hop.

Of course, there are prizes! Just be sure to leave a comment on this post (and all the other stops of the blog hop) before Wednesday, August 26th, 11:59 pm PDT for your chance to win a $25 gift code to the Sunny Studio Shop. The winners will be emailed their shopping codes and will be announced on the Sunny Studio blog on Saturday, August 30th. And there is a sale going on:

Thank you for joining us celebrating Sunny Studio's Fifth birthday! Mendi is one of the sweetest persons I know and I am honored to be able to work with her lovely products.

Have fun hopping and shopping and good luck for the giveaway!

What a cute card! Love the idea of sticking the surf boards in the sand for your little scene. Your aqua and pink also has such a fun, retro vibe that reminds me of the 50's--Sort of a Beach Boys Christmas card. Thank for all your countless cards. It has been such a joy having you on our team for the past 4-1/2 years and I would love to have you for countless more. Big hugs!

I love that fun card. The colors are beautiful. I love Christmas but I don't love cold weather, so I might just want to make one of these for myself and pretend I'm at the beach.
