Sunny Studio New Release Blog Hop + Birthday Celebration Giveaway!


Hey there and welcome to the birthday celebration of one of my favorite stamp companies - Sunny Studio! I'm a huge fan of the whimsical feel of this company's style. Now in honor of today's celebration, let's take a look at one of the new holiday releases! 

The official release is on September 29th but in honor of their birthday, the new products will available as a pre-order HERE this morning!  Be sure to use the code "CELEBRATE" through October 1st to receive 15% off your order.



I used the new Polar Playmates Stamp and Steel Die Set to create this card of wintery goodness. There are sentiments included to make it a holiday, birthday or generic card. I love that!



To create the card use watercolor paper and a wash of Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Tumbled Glass. Add a layer of frosty snowflakes from the stamp set in pigment inks right over the watercolored background for a cool patterned background. All of the stamped images were watercolored with Distress Inks and layered to create a scene. The fish were glued to embroidery string for a fun, textured element. A brush of Wink of Stella over the white caps of the igloo and a sprinkle of sequins finishes of the card.

I also have a $25 gift code for you today. I will chose a random winner from the comments. Tell me which of the new release sets is your favorite and you are entered! All winners will be announced on the Sunny Studio blog on Friday, September 29th. Good luck! 

For more chances to win, be sure to visit all of the designers in today's celebration:
