Sunny Studio Stamps Birthday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Sunny Studio Stamps Birthday blog hop! SSS turns 3! Yay! Happy Birthday Sunny Studio and Mendi! Thanks for having me in the lineup today! I’m so happy to celebrate with you as I was already celebrating your grand opening 3 years ago.




The hop begins on the Sunny Studio blog and if you have been hopping along, you should have come from Lexa Levana. 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 and giveaways!


For this special occasion and as SSS turns three, I’ve made three cards! I’m showcasing products from the newest September release. Here is what I came up with:




For the first card, I used the Alpaca Holiday stamp set. These alpacas are so sweet and special! I kept my card simple to make them shine! I did a sponged background and added snow dots for a winter atmosphere!





For the second card, I used the Alpaca Holiday stamp set again. I also used the mountain border stamp from the set that I LOVE!




For the third card, I used the Rustic Winter Dies and colored all elements to create this winter scene. The sentiment is from an older released set called Santa’s Helpers

Here are the sets from the newest September release I’ve used:
