Quickly popping in before I am heading to the swimming pool with my kiddos (I love summer vacation). I made a set of Thank you cards using some great products from Studio Katia. I have recently discovered Katia’s products, and I am amazed by the design, uniqueness and quality. Every single piece I have (not many yet) became my favourites in no time.
I started with Bristol Smooth cardstock, stamped and black heat embossed the fantastic floral image from the Thank you so much stamp set and the sentiment from the Mini Thank you set. I applied 2 colours of Distress Oxides on each panel: Peacock Feathers and Salty ocean, Abandoned Coral and Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves and Worn Lipstick.
I went over the flower with a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to get the oxidized look and some shimmer. As the oxides are more creamy due to the pigment characteristics, it left some residue on my embossing, but I could easily wipe it off with a paper towel.
I die cut the floral pieces with different stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn. I matched the flowers with plaid patterned papers also from Lawn Fawn and covered the white card bases with these. I mounted the focal panels on the plaid backgrounds using 3D foam tape.
As a final touch I used some Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals all over the flowers.
I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Use plaid.
Hope you like my cards, leave me a comment which one is your favourite. I love to read what you think.
See you soon for more inspirational projects.
Have a great day,
