Friday with Amy: Sunny Studio Stamps | Feeling Frosty

Hey there!  It's Amy here sharing a couple of Sunny Studio Stamps tags!  They feature:

It's become a habit with me to stamp out all the images and see what I come up.  That's why I generally have two projects to share.  Those snow peeps are so cute, aren't they?

I make it easy on myself and use the same color palette for each tag.  That means paper and copics.

YG03 | YG25
E23 | E25
W0 | W3

I'm smitten with the lime and berry color.  A fresh non-traditional color palette.  I've been using pastels lately and thought I'd shake things up a bit.

The scallop tags are so fun.  I just cut the gingham panel to fit in the center.  Originally I cut some bristol paper squares and was going to blend some Distress Oxides but thought I could use the beautiful Gingham Jewel Tones Paper Pad.

Did you know that green is my favorite color?  This might be my favorite tag because:

green   |   coffee

Doesn't get much better than that, does it? [wink]

I have heat embossed both of the sentiments in Hero Arts white embossing powder.

So are you wondering what I'm going to do with the tags?  I'm probably going to mount them on A2 card panels but wanted to leave that option until it gets closer to the holidays.

I've loaded each of the snow peeps up with Wink of Stella.  I don't know about your Wink of Stella but I always lose mine and then when I find it again I use it a ton.  Yes, I just found it...don't ask.

Are you a tag maker?  I love them, such fun little canvas to work on.  Thanks so much for joining me today!

Bonus Thursday with Toni: MFT Piles of Fun

Happy Tuesday!  Toni here with you today sharing another card made using the MFT SY Pile of Fun set paired with the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Landscape Backdrop.

I stamped the images with a Copic-friendly ink then colored them with Copics. Notice I fussy cut the pile of leaves?

For the card base, I sponged it lightly with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers and spattered it with water.

I used Gina K Connect Glue and Scotch Foam Tape to adhere the elements, including the sentiment stamped on an MFT Skinny Strip with Distress Oxide Candied Apple.

Tuesday with Toni: Honey Bee Fall

Howdy, y'all. Today's card is a soft, pretty and cute (and pretty cute!) fall card.

I started by diecutting the Lawn Fawn Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop and sponging it with the Pretty Pink Posh Autumn Leaves stencil and Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon.

I mounted that onto the pale blue card base using Gina K Connect Glue.

Next I diecut the Honey Bee Fall Dies using Lawn Fawn Fall Fling 6x6 Paper. This die set is so versatile--use just the word, the first matte, the second or a combination of them to create exactly what you're looking for--LOVE it.

I mounted the word diecut on the card front with Scotch Foam Tape.

I stamped the  MFT SY Piles of Fun images using a Copic-friendly ink and colored them with Copics. I chose a really soft palette, inspired by my friend and co-designer, Amy.

These are mounted on the card front with either Gina K Connect Glue or Scotch Foam Tape. For the leaves in the basket, I used an Exacto knife to cut a small slit and tucked the leaves inside.

I stamped the Honey Bee Fall sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black.

Friday with Amy: Avery Elle | Snow Fun Duo

Hello and Happy Friday!  It's Amy with a Snow Fun Duo featuring Avery Elle!  I've teamed the Snow Fun set with their Holiday Collection 6x6 Paper Pad.

First up is the red stripe panel:

I've been gravitating to retro color palettes for the holidays.  These sweet guys have been colored with the following copics:

B000 | B41
E40 | E42

I was originally going to make a shaker card but want to try to design postal friendly holiday cards.

The sentiment has been heat embossed in white on black cardstock.  The frame around the circle was made using nesting circle dies.

This design makes me smile, I adore the gingham with the holly pattern, how about you?

I did it again.  I stamped out all the images in the set and had more than enough to design two different cards.  Using the same overall color palette and the same paper pad makes everything super easy.

These guys were colored with the following copics:

R24 | R35
YR02 | YR04
YG01 | YG03
G03 | G05
E40 | E42

When I started taking photos, I noticed that the gingham card didn't have a sentiment.  I went back to add the sentiment strip not realizing I picked the same sentiment from my first card.

Happy to add these to my holiday stash.  Have you started yours yet?
