Barnyard Buddies Hilltop Barn Scene Card with Vanessa

Howdy y'all! Vanessa here with my first card using the new release! I think the Barnyard Buddies set is hilarious and enjoyed playing with this set first. Here is what I came up with.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Barnyard Buddies Hilltop Barn Scene Card by Vanessa Menhorn

I started with a panel of light blue cardstock. Then I trimmed a green panel the same size and cut a hill from it. After I had assembled the background, I die-cut two clouds using the Little Angels dies, adhered them to the panel and adhered the panel to the white card base. Now I stamped all the images, colored them with Copics, die-cut them with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the card, using foam tape to pop some up.

For the fun flag, I stamped the "howdy!" onto a strip of patterned paper, notched one end, trimmed it and adhered it to a toothpick before tucking it behind the hen.

I hope you like these cute images as much as I do! Thank you for stopping by today!

Barnyard Buddies Funny Farm Themed Card with Nancy

Hey Sunny Studio fans, Nancy here today with a funny farm card using the new Barnyard Buddies stamp and die set. I love that this set has so many versatile sentiments and icons. I'm using it here for a non-themed, "hello" card but I could've easily added a bouquet of balloons and the birthday sentiment for something a little bit different.

I started the card with two circles to corral the colored icons. The horse in the larger circle and the cow in the smaller one are magnified by the circular shape. While the barn in the lower left corner sets the stage. A simple sentiment in the center connects the design. All of the images were colored with Copic markers.

The cute little peep (which comes facing in both left and right directions - yay!) was stamped just above the sentiment. If you look closely, you can see a trail of tiny footprints where our peep has walked back and forth across the card. A sprinkle of tiny sequins to fill in the space between the horse and the peep completes the card.

Hello everybody, it's Amy here! In the honor of the CASEology's challenge blog's 5th birthday blog hop, I created two cards to share with you. My cards feature the balloon theme, with two of the cutest farm animal from Sunny Studio Stamps newest release for fall.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Missing Ewe and Barnyard Buddies CAS Balloon Themed Cards by Amy Yang

For the first card, I trimmed a top folding A2 card base using Neenah 110 cardstock. I stamped adorable sheep from Missing Ewe stamp set to the front of the card base. Then, I used a balloon stamp from Oceans Of Joy and applied the masking technique to make the blue balloon appear in front of the other two.

To make the sheep look like it's flying, I drew in the strings with a black Copic liner and colored the images with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment "Thank Ewe" from the Missing Ewe set with Versamark ink on a small strip of black cardstock and heat embossed it in white. I mounted the sentiment with foam tape.

For the second card, I made a 4-1/2" square card base using the same cardstock. This time, I stamped the pig from Barnyard Buddies with a balloon from Birthday Smiles. I added white accents with a Gelly Roll pen.

I drew in the strings with a Copic liner to make the pig look like he's flying too. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment "Happy Birthday" from Barnyard Buddies.

Autumn Greetings Layered Pumpkins Card with Eloise

Hi everyone! Eloise here and today I have a fall card for you all, using the brand new Autumn Greetings and Pretty Pumpkins stamp sets. I'm also pulling in the new Quilted Hexagons set as well. I am absolutely loving this new release - Mendi has knocked it out of the ball park once again with her amazing designs. Also, this Pretty Pumpkins is the newest layering set in the collection, which I am so super excited about - since the layering sets are always so so amazing!

Sunny Studio Stamps: Autumn Greetings Layered Pumpkins Card by Eloise Blue

To begin my card today, I first clear heat embossed the large hexagon line image from the Quilted Hexagon stamp set three times at a diagonal on the bottom of my watercolour piece. Once that was heat embossed, I used some green watercolour to watercolour over top to reveal the embossing. I dried it off with a heat tool and moved on to stamping my images.

I used four different orange inks to stamp the layers of my pumpkins. I did one of each size included in the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set. I also stamped some leaves and vines also. Then before stamping the stems on the pumpkins, I die cut all my images using the coordinating dies. Once the pumpkins were die cut I used some brown inks to stamp out the stems - it's easier this way since you then know exactly where you want to stamp the stems. Once everything was stamped I could arrange my card.

I used foam tape and liquid adhesive to adhere down all my pumpkins, leaves and vines. Once they were all adhered I stamped the 'Autumn Greetings' sentiment from the Autumn Greetings stamp set out onto my background with black ink and clear heat embossed that too. To finish up my card I added fun foam to the back of my panel and adhered down my panel to some orange cardstock and then onto a white card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my card today and are enjoying the new release!

Inspiration Week: Introducing Pretty Pumpkins & Autumn Greetings

Hello!  Today's the big day!  All 8 new stamp sets and coordinating dies are now available for purchase in our online store.  Before you run off to shop though, I hope you will pull up a chair for one last "peek" of two new stamp sets for Autumn, enter our last giveaway for the week and check out a couple special offers we have this weekend.  ;)

I would love to formally introduce you to our newest layering set called Pretty Pumpkins.  The stamps come with three unique pumpkins that stamp in three separate layers, the coordinating stems, a layered leaf and three little vines.  As a companion to the Pretty Pumpkins set, we also have a gorgeous new 3x4 sentiment set for fall called Autumn Greetings.

For my first card I inked over some clouds cut from masking material using our Sunny Sentiments and Rain or Shine stamps.  I finished my card with a crisp white scalloped edge using our double stitched scallop dies.

For my next card I created a pop-up box card pairing the new stamps and dies with Lawn Fawn's adorable box card die set.  I love how the pumpkins look in a 3-D setting like this one to create the look of a pumpkin patch!

The new stamps are also perfect for creating gorgeous tags for Fall!  For these I created my tags using our Crescent Tag Topper dies and then stamped the pattern on the bottom using our Quilted Hexagon stamps shared on Tuesday HERE.  I topped them with little jute cording and a pretty grosgrain bow which I adhered with some of my favorite Beacon's 3-in-1 liquid adhesive.

For my next card I decided to go a bit more rustic, pairing the pumpkins with a piece of burlap.  To keep it from fraying too badly, I sprayed the back with 3M Spray Mount in a cardboard box and then adhered it to a piece of brown cardstock before trimming it and adhering it to another larger brown cardstock.  For my sentiment, I stamped both the sentiment and dotted line from the set with versamark ink and then heat embossed them using brown embossing powder.   I then cut the end of my sentiment strip using our Sunny Semi Circle dies before stitching around the edge on my sewing machine.

My last card for the day pairs the sentiment and leaf stamp (used for my subtle background print) from Autumn Greetings with the stamps and dies from last year's popular Autumn Splendor set.Sunny Studio Stamps: Autumn Splendor & Autumn Greetings Fall Leaves Thank You Card by Mendi Yoshikawa

Here's a full look at the new 4x6 Pretty Pumpkins and 3x4 Autumn Greetings clear stamps and coordinating dies available for purchase on Friday morning (please note: images are not shown to scale).


    

I have created a stamping guide to help you in layering the stamps.  When working with dye inks I have found that it is often easier to layer the the images "backwards" by starting with the smallest stamp in your darkest color and working back to the lightest overall image.  It has helped me tremendously in seeing where to line up my images.  To use the guide, the dark black outlines show where the image touches the edges of the previous stamped layer.
You can download or print your own PDF layering guide HERE.

I frequently am asked what ink colors I've used.  While I have used a variety of brands in my samples, there's a good chance you can achieve similar results with inks you probably already have in you stash.  I highly recommend stamping your inks out and creating a swatch book to aid you in choosing two or three inks that compliment each other.  These are the ones I happened to use here today from lightest to darkest:

Oranges
Hero Arts Orange Soda
Papertrey Ink Orange Zest
Stampin' Up Tangerine Tango

Greens
