Sunny Studio Grand Opening Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Sunny Studio grand opening blog hop! 
I’m so excited to tell you about this new company and I’m thrilled to be part of this hop! Thanks so much Mendi! 




The hop begins on the Sunny Studio blog and if you have been hopping along, you should have come from Heidi Criswell’s blog. Make sure you hop around to all of the blogs featured in the link list at the bottom of this post. You will find lots of inspiration!

I’ve made 2 cards for this hop using the Birthday Smiles and the School Time stamp sets. 


   



The first card features the fantastic Birthday Smiles stamp set. I so love this set and most of all, the cute smiley that I put on the balloon. The font (in both sets) is also amazing!!! I colored the balloon background (that I created with the balloon from the set using the masking technique) with Polychromos pencils on kraft paper. 





For the second card, I used the fun School Time stamp set. I made a clean and simple one-layer card and just stamped the notebook paper image multiple times on top of each other using again the masking technique. 




***HOP PRIZES***

Mendi Yoshikawa, the owner of Sunny Studio, will be giving away stamp sets to three lucky winners, offering a free digital stamp download on the Sunny Studio blog and offering free shipping for all US orders over $35 in the Sunny Studio Online Store.  Head over to the Sunny Studio blog to enter the rafflecopter
