I could not resist popping in again with a simple but very colourful thank you card. I had my new Studio Katia goodies still on my desk and wanted to make another card, this time I used the Mini Thank you set only.
I started with a Copic friendly paper and stamped several times the little butterfly on the right side of it slightly turning it to have a variation in the angle. I stamped the sentiment from the set more or less in the middle of the paper and trimmed the edge down to have a 4 and 1/4 by 4 inch piece. I coloured the butterflies with Copics.
I had a left over piece of Lawn Fawn plaid paper from my previous card which was perfectly matching the idea I had, so I adhered an inch piece to a white card base (I slightly trimmed it down to be 5 and 1/4 by 4 inch). I adhered the butterfly panel next to it and added a stitched strip of glitter paper where the 2 papers meet.
I added Spectrum Noir Clear Shimmer to the butterflies and a few rhinestones (I “stole” them from my daughter’s stash) in rainbow colours. A bit of glossy accents finished off the card.
Simple and easy and I only used a mini stamp set to make it. Super fun!
I hope you like it and will return soon for more inspiration.
Have sweet dreams,
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,
