Hello everyone, it’s Galina. Today I want to share with you a fun idea of making a simple geometric card using basic supplies. To create this pattern I used HALFTONE DOTS CIRCLE DIE set.
How to make this card you can watch here or on Studio Katia Youtube channel.
I have cut out a white card panel using a slimline die. You can work with regular a2 card panel. But I love to have more space to play with this technique and a size of slimline panel is a perfect to create a full geometric pattern. Next, I’m going to create my pattern with circles using HALFTONE DOTS CIRCLE DIES. At first, I m going to cut out a biggest circle on the top and the bottom of my panel.
On a white cardstock I applied different colros of distress oxide inks. I cut out thsoe patterns using coordinating circle dies from the same set. I foam mount them behund the panel.
To embelish my card I add a few clear crystals.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I will show you a cute card featuring the one and only Kobi the bear!
Take a look:
I knew I wanted to use Kobi on my cards for a long time, so today I finally decided to use one and show you that you can easily use stamps all over the year even though the stamp sets is mostly Valentine’s day themed. I stared making this card by stamping out a bear from the Kobi’s hugs & kisses stamp set which is as said a valentine’s day themed stamp set, but can be used any time of the year! I colored the image in using alcohol markers and this time I went with gray colored bear.
I didn’t want my bear to hold a normal bouquet, so I stamped a pot flower from Potted plants and colored it in using alcohol makrers. Then, I die cut both images and the great thing is that the Kobi’s die cuts it’s hands out as well, so you can easily put the pot in his hands!
Next I made the background for which I used the Rectengular dots cover on a white piece of paper. I didn’t want to have just a plain white backdrop, so I used Studio Katia ink blending brushes and added soft pink ink over the dotted rectangles in the center. To make sure everything connects nicely, I also added the same ink over the actual card base to get a soft pink edge.
Then, I added a white oval from the Dotted ovals to the center of the card to ensure that my bear will be seen nicely and won’t get lost in the background.
The last think that I added was a sentiment that reads ‘Congratulations’ and can be found in the Peony trimming stamp set. I used a white card stock and black ink, so the sentiment can be read easily and has a bold look to it.
All the elements were done in no time, so the only thing left to do was to glue everything together using double sided foam tape and the liquid glue.
Thank you so much for joining me!

Hello everyone! Isha here with you today with a fun, sparkly birthday card using stencil. I chose some autumn colors to make it perfect for this season 🙂
I started by creating the background panel. I sponged distress oxide inks in wilted violet, abandoned coral, worn lipstick and scattered straw to a white layer. I then put the Confetti stencil and sponged the same colors using the blender brushes. Now, I mixed some Sparkle glitter to translucent embossing paste and applied through the stencil. Remove the stencil and wash immediately. Let this piece dry. I die-cut three tags using the Slider Tag die. One white, one vellum and the third using a yellow cardstock. Adhere the vellum onto the white and then adhere this to the yellow, slightly offset from the bottom part. Stamp the cake image using the Mini Birthday Cake stamp, color using copic markers and die-cut. Apply some spectrum noir clear sparkle pen to the icing.
Adhere the tag to the mat layer. Adhere the mat layer to the card and then using a 3D foam adhere the cake image.Tie an cream and gold twine and the word enjoy. Thank you for dropping by! Have a nice day and stay safe!
Hello everyone! It’s Galina. And today I’m going to show you a one layered autumn birthday card. This card design will be perfect for masculine cards also.
How to make this card you can watch here or Studio Katia Youtube channel.
I start by to cut out a several acorns from a white card panel. . I tried place my die on different angels to create an effect of falling acorns from a tree. NExt I aplied a dark blue ink on a panel and brown inks on the acorn parts.
Using detailed stencil called autumn leave stencil I created a background. This stencil is perfect for any seseson card, I have made a lot of summer cards with it, you can check other projects on this blog or on Youtube channel. So, I applying a light blue color of distress oxide ink. It’s a pigment ink so it will be visible on a dark surface. If you don’t have oxise inks you can use a white pigment ink or a darker color of regular ink. Like super deep blue or even a black color. The pattern will look awesome e anyway.
I inlaid the acorn pieces into the car panel. Ididn’t add the outline die cut to create a nice texture on the card. So im placing each die cut back in to the panel. It’s like putting puzzle together. Very satisfying process.
I heat embosset the sentiment with white embossing powder. I used a small stamp from the big set of birthday sentiments.
To embilsh my card I used a few gold drops from Studio Katia.

Hello everyone! Isha here with you today with a CAS card using stencil.
I started by creating the background. I sponged some spun sugar, worn lipstick, picked raspberry and wilted violet distress oxide inks to the white cardstock using the blender brushes. I then took the Autumn Leaves stencil and put it on the inked piece. I then applied versamark ink through the stencil. Remove the stencil and dab some perfect pearls to the piece. Die-cut the heart, adhere the positive to the white cardbase, adhere vellum on top. Now adhere the negative part of the layer to the cardbase. Stamp sentiment from the It’s your Birthday stamp set onto vellum using StazOn black ink. Die-cut the word YOU from the Chunky Alphabet die four times from white cardstock. Stack them, apply some clear sparkle on it and add glossy accent. Let dry.
Adhere the word to the heart center. To finish, add some Icy Sparkle Crystals. Thank you for dropping by! Have a nice day and stay safe!
Hey lovelies, Tracy here with you for part 2 of my quick and easy mini series. You can find part 1 here.
For todays card we are making a shaker card ! Now anyone that knows me knows I avoided shaker cards because i was awful at them. But this is what I have learnt.
- Keep them simple until you are comfortable
- Use GOOD foam tape
- Don’t overthink them and compare yours to others.
I would always look at others shaker cards and try and go for something fancy and would fail….the good thing with shaker cards is you do not need to go fancy as the card below shows.
I used the Shaker Balloon Die set which makes it so much easier, I started off die cutting a piece of the new Rainbow paper pad using the Dotted Patterns set 1 along with the shaker balloon die. I used the same die and cut out some black card.
I laid the main piece over some black card and used it as a guide to adhere the balloon and black outline.
To create the shaker I adhered some strong acetate to the back of the main piece and I adhered foam tape to the BASE, this is something I found allows lining everything up so much easier. I then added some Silver Fever Sequins and carefully lined the main piece up and adhered it. I then heat embossed a sentiment from the Birthday Greetings stamp set. To finish off I added the diecut bow along with some silver sparkle over the top.
If you are going for a more simple shaker like this my advice is too use a nice patterned paper and also some nice coloured sequins as they add that little bit extra something.
Doing this kind of shaker card really helped get my confidence back with shaker cards plus they are super quick.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you like the tips I shared.
Have an amazing day and happy crafting
Hi there, it’s Tracey back again today with a sporty themed slimline birthday card using the new Sports-Balls Trimmings stamp set.
Like the other stamps in the Trimmings series, there is two almost identical stamps in the set. One that the orientation would typically work best with the stamp on the bottom of your scene and the other at the top. Design team member Emily Leiphart made a card a couple weeks ago using the stamp best suited for the bottom. Today I chose to use the stamp best for the top. There are some different sports equipment in both stamps.
I stamped the image using Copic friendly ink and coloured the image with Copic Markers. I’ll admit it took some time sorting out the colours for each of the images but it was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
Once the colouring was done I used the coordinating Sports-Balls Trammings dies to cut the image out. The die only cuts 3 sides of the image and leaves the bottom attached. On my card today I placed the die cut in the centre of the card so I did a bit a fussy cutting to free the die cut from the paper.
The card base for my slimline card was cut from navy cardstock to 7″ x 8 1/2″ and scored in the centre of the length at 3 1/2″ to create a 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and it was white embossed on to the front of the card.
I used the shaped rectangle from the Dotted Slimline Set 2 dies to create a focal panel for the coloured image. I love using my stencil with the Studio Katia Blending Brushes. I stenciled Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink using the Studio Katia Grid Stencil to add a bit of detail. I attached the panel direct to the card base just above Happy Birthday.
Next I attached the coloured Sports-Balls image with Studio Katia foam tape. The grid stenciling underneath pops more with the added dimension. I finished the card off with Studio Katia Sparkling Sea Confetti. A great design for a sports buff, child or teenager. You can choose the top or bottom stamp depending which sports equipment you would like on your card.

Can you believe it’s September? I have a lot of birthdays to celebrate this month so I need to get started. I made this card for my youngest nephew who’s turning 8 mid-month. He’s the youngest of three kids but also the most athletic. He’s good at every sport he tries so Sport-Balls Trimmings was the obvious choice for his card.
I heat embossed the image and watercoloured it with distress inks. After the panel dried, I die cut it with the coordinating Sport-Balls Trimmings Dies and set it aside. I created a slimline card base and die cut the front panel with Dotted Slimline Set 1.
I masked off the edges of the card base and used the Light Ray Stencil directly on the card base. I also created a mask for the image and continued the rays below the images. Then I curved the sentiment from Birthday Greetings against the oval die and heat embossed it on to the card base. To finish, I adhered the frame and image to the card with fun foam and added some Iridescent Stars.
