Winter Scene Building + Sunny Studios 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop!

Winter Scene Building + Sunny Studios 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! I am super excited about today’s tutorial, as I am sharing a winter scene project featuring new, Sunny Studio Stamps products! We’ll be doing lots of Copic coloring, some ink blending and die cutting… so get ready for a creative workout! :)

Did you know that Sunny Studio is also celebrating their 3rd birthday?! A HUGE shout out to my sweet friend Mendi for reaching yet another amazing milestone in her creative journey! I remember when she first started her amazing little company… I was so happy for her to be able to take something she loved doing – creating – and turn it into a thriving company! Happiest birthday wishes to you and Sunny Studios, Mendi!

I’m participating in a blog hop in celebration of Sunny Studio’s 3rd Birthday… if you have already been hopping along, you should have arrived from the oh-so-talented, Kay Miller’s blog!

The critters used in this card are from the darling, Foxy Christmas stamp and die set. These little animals just make me smile… especially the one with antlers! I made that fox look like rudolph of course, complete with a red, Nuvo Glitter Drops dot for the nose!Click here for Copic colors used on this project.

Behind the foxes, I have a Distress Oxide ink blended sky (using Wilted VioletPeacock Feathers and Broken China). I added birch trees to the scene, cut from the Rustic Winter die set.

Sunny Studios is also now creating embossing folders! I love using these to add texture to a card base; on this card I used the Cable Knit folder on my A2, Luxury White Gina K. Designs card base.

For the greetings on my card, I used the Memory Box Typewriter Holiday Sentiments set. There are dots of white Nuvo Gloss Drops, and white, die cut snowflakes (from the new, Sunny Studio Warm and Cozy set). There is also hints of glitter here and there, which was added with a Tonic Studios clear Aqua Shimmer pen.

For a final touch, I used Lawn Fawn Peppermint Trimmings to tie across the top of the card.

Scene building is such a great way to stretch your stamps and dies! I have always enjoyed creating elaborate, as well as simple scenes for years. And the images in the Foxy Christmas set is perfect for making many holiday and winter scenes. What I always find fascinating is how you can achieve so many different results with just a single set. I’m curious to see how you and so many others will be using these images!

I hope you have enjoyed today’s video tutorial and are inspired to create! Be sure to keep on reading for details on the blog hop, plus giveaways!

    Wow, I’m amazed at all the dimension on this card. I love the fox set (who knew that foxes in hats and reindeer antlers was something I needed in my life?), and to have one sitting on the other’s head? Adorable. I also really like what you did with the birch trees. They look like the aspens that grow around here, so it feels like a very familiar winter scene. Thanks for sharing your ideas and video with us!
