Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

BLOG_HOP_2ND_ANIVERSARY

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop as a guest designer. I feel honoured to be part of such a gorgeous celebration.

You should have arrived from my talented friend, Laura Volpes’s blog and I am the last stop for today. If you get lost you can find the full hop list below or visit Studio Katia Blog!

CARD 1.

SKbloghop_01

For my first card I applied Distress Inks gently on Bristol Smooth cardstock, then through the Brush Stroke Waves stencil I reapplied the same inks once more. Before removing the stencil I sprayed Iridescent Shimmer Mist on it for a subtle sparkle. Until my background was drying I stamped and coloured the images from the Under the sea stamp set using Copic markers. I die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I also inked up a stitched hillside border with distress inks, splattered some Gathered Twigs and Antique Linen inks on it to look like sand. Before assembling the card I white heat embossed the sentiment on the top. I decided to make this card really festive by adding the present and the little birthday hat from the Shell-ebration stamp and die set.

As a finishing touch I emphasized the eyes of the fish with a black glaze pen and added a bit of glossy accents to some details. I also scattered a bunch of Clear confetti to look like bubbles.

CARD 2.

For my second card I die cut a Stitched Creative window in the middle of a white cardstock, and once more from light grey cardstock. I adhered a piece of an alcohol ink background to a white card base and popped up the window with the inlaid frame using 3D foam tape.

I carefully white heat embossed the sentiment in the middle window and adhered the sea critters using 3D foam squares for ore dimension. A few Iridescent bubbles, glossy accent and white gel pen details finished this card off.

CARD 3.

After seeing the Seashell Shaker die I just had to make an underwater shaker card too. I die cut a white cardstock piece with the rectangle from the Dotted Patterns Set 1 with the Shell die in it. I added a piece of transparency to the back of it and made the tunnel for the shaker part with 3D foam tape. I used a small piece of the alcohol inked background adhered to a blue violet mat and added Crystal Clear, Silver Foil Confetti and a bit of the Shimmering Ice Fusion sequin mix.

When my shaker piece was all sealed I decorated the front with the little turtle from the Shell-ebration set. The sentiment I white heat embossed on a black banner. A bit of glossy accent, some clear shimmer on the present and black glaze pen on the eyes made it finished.

  1. I REALLY like your cards. The blue shade you used is so pretty but all the colors a vibrant and cheerful. The format for each card in totally different but you used the same stamp set. That really shows the versatility of the set (and your creativity) Thank you for ending the blog with 3 wonderful cards.

  2. All of your cards are fantastic or maybe I should say they are shell-tastic! All of your finishing extra details on the designs really make each card so special and pop! I like how you made the turtle shell look (to me like you added an extra cardstock layer for dimension). The glaze you put on top is the frothing on the waves! Makes it special. Your shell shaker card has convinced me that I need to buy this and make some fun seashell cards! Thank you for your inspiration.
