Sunny Studios + Studio Katia Blog Hop Giveaway


Welcome to the Sunny Studios and Studio Katia blog hop. Both teams are celebrating Summer Time with fun and colorful shaker cards using stamps from Sunny Studio and dies and embellishments from Studio Katia.  There are prizes and a special sale too! Both companies have a prize to give away too so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!



I used the Magical Mermaids stamp set to create this under the sea card. The images were all colored with Copic Markers for a punch of color. The fun wave border was created with the Sunny Studios Stitched Scalloped Borders Steel Die.  The border was then colored with Distress Oxide Ink in Broken China



The Studio Katia Dotted Shaker Tag makes for perfect embellishments. Here. I placed it right over the wave border and filled it with a mix of Summer Fusion sequins. The colors really pop against the white background. A few sprinkles of sequins up at the top finish off the card. Now let's take a look at more inspiration from both design teams:

Have fun hopping!

Neat and Tangled July Release Day Three | School Hous

Hey there, welcome to the first day of the July Neat and Tangled release. The second stamp set up is called School House with the cutest little critters and sentiments.  My favorite from this set is the pencil which I centered the design around.


To create this card I used the Neat and Tangled School House stamp and die sets with Versafine Ink. Next, I colored a handful of images with Kuretake Gansai Watercolors. I used a masking technique to make a tower of staggered pencils. Each colored in shades of blue, with a green one way at the top. A school bound bear softly watercolored completes the stamped images.



The stacked sentiment was stamped in Onyx Ink. The card was layered with blue cardstock and placed on a gray base.   A few sprinkles of sequins finish off this school themed card.

Neat and Tangled Release Day 2 | You're a Ge

Hey there, welcome to the first day of the July Neat and Tangled release. The second stamp set up is called You're a Gem and it certainly is.  I love all of the different shapes and sizes included in this set. The beautiful, bold script is perfect for large sentiments.


To create this card I used the Neat and Tangled You're a Gem stamp and die sets with Versafine Ink. Next, I colored a handful of images with Dr. Ph Martin's India Ink. I love how bold the colors are! The gems were layered at the bottom of the card, some with a bit of foam tape for lift. 



The bold sentiment was stamped in Onyx Ink. The entire card was framed out and placed on stripped patterned paper. A few sprinkles of clear Dew Drops finish off this fun card.

Neat and Tangled July Release Day 1 | Together Stamp Set

Hey there, welcome to the first day of the July Neat and Tangled release. The first stamp set up is called Together and it's chock full of beautiful text. Perfect for titles of all different kids. I paired it up with Flamingo Floatie stamp set and Triangle Pattern Mask for a fun summer card.

To create this card I used the Triangle Pattern Mask and Oxide Distress Inks for a fun background. Combining the Neat and Tangled Together stamp and die sets is a great way to create a layered title. I used a blending tool to shade the top of the die cut title for a pop of color. The Flamingo Floatie images were colored with Copic markers and layered on the ink blended background.



A few sprinkle of sequins finish off this layered card.
