Hello there! Today I am joining a group of amazingly talented ladies to help introduce a new stamp company, Sunny Studio Stamps!
You should have come from Nina's blog... if you've gotten lost or want to start at the beginning, the full hop order is listed down below.
The very first release of Sunny Studio Stamps consists of 8 stamp sets and 6 die sets! I am so excited to share projects made with my two favorite sets from the release, Bundled Up and Snow Kissed. These two sets are filled with adorable penguins that you can dress up, and mix and match. The possibilities are endless!
My first project uses the single penguin from the Bundled Up stamp set. I just love dressing these little guys up! I stamped, copic colored and fussy cut my pieces, but there are coordinating dies for these, and several other stamp sets. I knew I wanted to use the fun pom-pom hat from the Bundled Up set, and I added some lines to the cuff of the hat to match the striped scarf. After I colored him (or her) with some of my favorite Copic shades, I popped this little penguin up on the ice patch from the Snow Kissed stamp set, using some foam tape. The brightly colored patterned paper and rainbow starry background coordinate with the penguin's adorable attire. The sentiment is also from the Bundled Up stamp set.
For my next project, I got a bit more ambitious. I used the little skating penguin to create a domed ornament! I started out by masking off a sky line of my ornament backer and used Tumbled Glass distress ink to add some color to what would be the sky in my scene. Then I masked off the sky and used Peacock Feathers distress ink to create the water. I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the ice patch, and skating penguin from the Snow Kissed stamp set, and his little coffee mug, from the Bundled Up stamp set. I popped everything up on foam tape, and stamped a sentiment from Snow Kissed stamp set. I added a google eye for some whimsy, and before I closed off the ornament, I added tiny little styrofoam snowballs that I found last year at the Dollar Tree. These little snowballs cause quite a bit of static cling, but I don't mind. *wink*
It may be hard to see in the photos. but I added some Icicle Stickles to the ice patch to make it sparkle, and I stamped some tiny snowflakes from the stamp set in the sky using more Tumbled Glass distress ink. The white gel pen accents really add to his outfit, don't you think? :)
I tied the ornament to a package, which is a fun way to dress up a gift with another little gift! I love that when the ornament is laying flat, the sentiment gets hidden with snowballs.
That's it for me today... I hope you enjoyed my projects! You'll want to keep reading so you don't miss any important snippets of information!!
