Hello Foxy!

Hi there! It's Lexa here with a card that full of sunshine today. It's always sunny (or rainy some other times) in where I live, so I decided to create a bright card for you all..


I use older stamp sets for today's card by combining Sunny Sentiments, Woodsy Creatures and Backyard Bugs together to create a little scene. I stamp all the images with Versafine black ink then watercolor them with Distress Markers. When you go through your Sunny Studio stamps collection, you will realize that you can combine most of all the stamp sets together. That's how versatile the designs are. After I finished with the coloring, I die cut all the images with the coordinating dies.

As for the background I want it to be solid this time. So I die cut green and blue cardstock with a basic stitched rectangular dies, then adhere it to the 4.25"x5.5" card base. That create thin white borders around it and look like a frame. I stamped "hello" on the cloud, it's a simple and warming greeting for everyday cards. Here's a closer look of my card...


I really hope you enjoy the post and my card for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

PPP Warm Hugs and Lots Of Love

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a winter theme card, featuring some holiday stamp sets, Winter Woodland and Christmas Friends. Today I will play with watercolor for the background using Caran D'Ache Neocolor II. 


Holiday stamp sets also can be used for everyday cards as well. I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink that works the best for watercoloring. My style of watercolor is always a little bit loose, I always use Distress Markers and damp brush for coloring. I mix blue and purple for the sky, blend the colors with lots of wate and left some white borders on the edges. I love to create a little scene, it just make me happy everytime I make up stories behind it.

After I finished with the background, I make a snow hill as the ground for the little boy and winter animals to stand. Aren't they the cutest? It probably one of my most favorite stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh ever.


Here are some closer looks of my card. Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix is a perfect companion for this card, it creates snow drops from the sky as well as create dimensions. Somehow it makes the scene look so dreamy together with the pastel color sky.


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you guys like my card as much as I do. Have a wonderful day!

Winter Chapel Christmas Card

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with another inspiration for Chirstmas cards, I made a simple yet elegant card featuring Christmas Chapel stamp and it's coordinating dies.


When it comes to create a clean and simple design, I always focus on the color combination and the layout. Today I chose blue, navy and mint as my color muse. I created my own mask by diecut a rounded edges rectangle on a piece of acetate. Then I blend some Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks in gradation, after I'm happy with the blending I stamped the stars from the same stamp set with blue dye ink. The white dots are created with Nuvo Drops, it adds such an amazing dimensions to my card. I stamp my images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. I also stamp a snowy Christmas tree from Christmas Home stamp set to complete my scene. I also bend the "Merry Christmas" sentiment to follow the banner on top -this one of main reason why I love clear stamps! Here's a closer look of my card...


The border on the bottom part is to fill in an empty space, but I still want to keep it simple using the smaller Stitched Scallop Dies on navy cardstock against the mint polkadot patterned paper. I really hope you enjoy today's card. Thank you so much for stopping by today, I wish you an amazing day!

Playful Polarbear Holiday Card

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a winter theme card using Playful Polar Bears stamp and the coordinating dies. What's better than a cute polar bear on your card? Three polar bears, of course.


I devided my card into three sections, die cut stitched hills and blend some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink to give some depth and dimension. And create a gradation Seedless Preserved for the sky, after I'm happy with the blending I stamp some snowflakes on the background to fill in the empty space. I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. I also add some accent with white gel pen after the watercolor completely dried up. The sentiment is stamped following the snow hill's curves... and I think it looks really cute.


To finished my card, I create some dots using Nuvo Drops aqua glitter, it really give my card some sparkles. Which is alwas needed for holiday cards. Thank you so much for visitting today, I hope you enjoy today's post. Have an amazing December everyone!

Silver Bell Rustic Christmas Card

Hello crafty friends! Lexa here today with another Christmas card inspiration, for today's card I will be highlighting Silver Bells Dies from Sunny Studio Stamps. The details are so pretty and it goes well with so many stamp sets.


I stamped some pretty poisenttias and leaves from Petite Poisenttias Stamp for the background. After finished with the stamping I create some red splatter using the same red dye ink. I layered a slightly smaller size vellum on top to soften the background a little bit. I kind of want to create a rustic look for this card, it looks classic and gorgeous, so I use a lace patterned paper to border my card. To match the concept, I use real lace behind the red paper stripe with silver embossed sentiment on it. The Silver Bells are cut on a piece of silver foil paper, they both are tied together with silver twines. I also adhere yellow cardstock behind the stars. Here's a closer look of my card...


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you like my card as much as I do. Have a wonderful day everybody!

Christmas Home

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with an interactive Christmas card inspiration highlighting Christmas Home stamp and the coordinating dies. Last year, I made a winter scene card using the Happy Home stamp set.. I must say that I was extremely happy to see this stamp set, it has everything to create a perfect winter scene. All the smallest details are so on point.


I started the card with some blending on the white cardstock using Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feather and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. Finished it with some water splatters here and there. I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them using Distress markers. All the images have crazy details and I love it! I had so much fun coloring all of them.
The card can be slided from the left to the right, it looks cute. I also create a snow hill, adhere it with foam tapes and start to build the scene. What's really important when you create a simple scene in my opinion is how you create dimensions. I'm super happy with the result, I think it's so darling. I choose a bigger sentiment from Festive Greetings for this card. And finished it with some pretty clear sequins, they look like falling snow.


Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you like today's card. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Snowy Background For Christmas

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a Christmas card inspiration highlighting the brand new background stamp from Sunny Studio, Frosty Flurries and Snow Flurries stamps. And for this card, I'll be combine those two to create my background.


First of all, I embossed the sentiment from Festive Greetings Stamp with silver embossing powder and heat gun. Then I embossed both Frosty Flurries and Snow Flurries, I don't mind even if they are overlapping each other. Then I blend Peacock Feather and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink, the coolest thing about this technique is when you blend those inks on the paper, the embossed stamps will resist. The glossy effect is super cool!

As for my scene, I use the Christmas Chapel and some ornaments from Christmas Home to complete the whole scene. Isn't that snowman the cutest? I stamp all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring, I die cut them all with the coordinating dies.


Thank you so much for visitting today. I hope you all have an amazing day!
