Sunshine - Sunny Studio Guest Designer

Hi there!  I've got some exciting news to share, I was asked to do a guest designer spot over on the Sunny Studio Stamps blog today.
I created two cards using the adorable Sunny Studio's stamp set Sunny Sentiments along with the coordinating Sunshine Word Die and Sun Ray Die sets.
For my first card, I stamped one of the cute sunshine images from the set along with three of the cloud images onto white cardstock and colored them using Copic markers then cut them out.  Next I did some ink blending onto a panel of white cardstock using tumbled glass, mustard seed and spiced marmalade distress inks.  After that, I blended the same yellow distress inks onto a piece of yellow cardstock and used the Sun Ray Die to die cut them out.  I adhere my die cut sun rays onto my ink blended panel, making sure to leave room for my stamped sentiment.  I added my clouds and sunshine images next, popping up the sun and one of the clouds using foam tape and then stamped my sentiment along with three yellow stars.  I used the Sunshine Word Die and die cut that from black cardstock and adhered that below my stamped sentiment.  I added a vertical strip of yellow cardstock to a white card base and added my decorated cardstock panel using foam tape. As a final touch, I used some icicle Stickles to the three stamped stars and some Wink of Stella glitter pen to my sun rays.
For my second card, I used a piece of watercolor paper and watercolored some yellow and orange for the area I knew I wanted my sunshine and some grays and dots of aqua for where I wanted my clouds and rain drops.  I stamped the same sunshine and cloud images on to white cardstock again, coloring them with Copic markers and cutting them out.  Then on a scrap piece of paper, I die cut one of the sun rays using the  Sun Ray Dies and used it as a stencil, using mustard seed and marmalade distress inks, over the area I knew I was going to place my stamped sunshine image.  Next I used the same yellow distress inks onto a piece of yellow cardstock and die cut my Sunshine Word and adhered it to my panel, then stamped my sentiment and rain drops and adhered my clouds and sunshine, popping up the sun and one cloud with foam tape.  I used a white card base with a strip of yellow cardstock along the bottom and adhered my panel using foam tape.  For some added detail, I used some Glossy Accents on the rain drops and did dots of yellow Stickles on the sun rays.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
