Bearing gifts ft. Studio Katia New Release

Hello Everyone,

Last Friday & Saturday Studio Katia had a mega Blog Hop as their 2nd anniversary celebration. It was a blast and I could not stop making more cards with the new release.. Today I brought you a birthday card made with the new Kobi set. 

SKbloghop_11

I made a very vibrant birthday card. I used a dotted stencil to apply Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey and Mustard Seed distress inks on Bristol Smooth cardstock. After removing the stencil I went back gently with the same inks to cover the whole panel.

I stamped and coloured the bear from Kobi Bearing Gifts using Copics. I used the coordinating die to cut him out and popped him on a Dotted Shaker tag using 3D foam tape. I white heat embossed the little sentiments on very thin black cardstock strips and adhered them to the tag. I used a piece of black gingham ribbon and white twine to complete the tag and mounted it on the background using 3D foam tape.

The usual shimmer pen-glossy accent combo I used on the presents an added a few Gold Crystals to make it festive.

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.

SKbloghop_03

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.

SKbloghop_04

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.

SKbloghop_08

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.

SKbloghop_10

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.

SKbloghop_05

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.

SKbloghop_07

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.

Simple & colourful thank you

Hello Again,

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.

20170719_200648 wm

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.

20170719_200712 wm

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.

20170719_200803 wm

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,

Zsofi

Plaid and flower

Hello Everyone,

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.

20170719_071709 wm

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.

20170719_071800 wm

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.

20170719_071811 wm

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,

Zsofi
