To make this card I took an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock using the rounded corners cover die from DOTTED PATTERNS SET 3 | CREATIVE DIE . The background was created by blended tattered rose distress oxide ink.
next I cut the window using the amazing new european window die and glued it on the background.
Next I colored the sweet cactus using copic markers. I glued them on the window with foam tape for dimension.
I hope you enjoy the card I created and feel inspired to create!
Hello crafty friends!
It’s Svitlana here. I’m so excited to guest design on Studio Katia blog today!
I want to share with you an idea for a Mother’s Day card (because it’s THAT season).
I fell in love with the new Floral Wreath Stamp Set and wanted to put it to use as soon as I got it.
Then I colored the wreath with COPICs markers. I choose blue and gray color scheme for my coloring. It’s not realistic, but I think it looks very cool.
When I finished coloring I placed the panel back into the MISTI and stamped again with the black ink. I did it to make the outlines darker and crisper.
Next I die-cut a circle out of the wreath and fussy cut it using my scissors.
I make a vertical side folding A2 card out of a Neenah Solar White Cardstock and blended the Salty Ocean Oxide Ink onto it covering the whole surface. Next I placed the Grid Stencil on top and blended the Salty Ocean Distress Ink through it. Using the same colors of both oxide and distress inks I achieved the perfect match of blended layers.
To add some interest to the background I added some water splatters, blotted them and then added splatters of white and black sprays. Next I foam mounted the wreath onto the card.
For the sentiment I die-cut two words out of white using the dies from the Best Ever Die Set. And I white embossed a word MOM on black using a stamp from the Best Ever Stamp Set. After white embossing I cut it out kind of following the word shape, I didn’t feel like having just a simple stripe with sharp corners.
I popped all the elements of the sentiment onto the card and finished it off by adhering several Gray Clouds Crystals.
I hope you like this idea and will give it a try. I’m a big lover of blue color, but this design can be implemented in any other color wave.
Have a wonderful day!
Hi crafty friends, I’m so exited to sharing with you my second card and tag that I created for Studio Katia new release.
To make this card I took an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock using the rounded corners cover die from DOTTED PATTERNS SET 3 | CREATIVE DIE. The background was created by blended shaded lilac distress oxide ink using grid stencil.
To make this tag I cut from white cardstock a tag from the set DOOTTED PATTERNS SET 3 – CREATIVE DIE.
The background was created by blended shaded lilac distress oxide ink.
I hope you enjoy the card and the tag I created and feel inspired to create!
Today I’m sharing with you a card and tag set that I created for using newly released products. My card is featuring ALOHA STAMP SET.
To make this card I took an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock. The background was created by blended spun sugar distress oxide ink with picked raspberry distress oxide ink. I sprayed some water onto it and soaked it up with paper towel.
I took another A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock and cut an oval window using the biggest oval die from DOTTED OVALS DIES and glued it on the top of the blending ink panel.
Next, I colored gorgeous flowers using copic markers. I glued them to my panel with foam tape for dimension. I stamped a greeting from the ALOHA STAMP SET using black ink.
To make the tag I cut a tag from white cardstock from the set DOTTED PATTERNS SET 3 – CREATIVE DIE.
Next, I colored the gorgeous flower and leaves using copic markers. I glued them to my tag with foam tape for dimension. I stamped a greeting from the ALOHA STAMP SET using black ink.
I hope you enjoyed the card I created and feel inspired to create!
Have a wonderful day!
it’s Maria from @a_country_home. I’m very delighted to be a guest on the Studio Katia Blog today. A big thank you to Katia and Liliya for inviting me! I create three cards for today. It’s not a secret that I prefer watercoloring to other medium, it is the best way for me to relax after a long day at work. And here is what I came up with.
For my first card I die cut two panels using rectangle die from the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames Creative Dies. Then I die cut one of the panels again with the decorative frame which is included in the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames Creative Dies. Next, I stamped beautiful Lovely Blooms Stamp Set on both the frame and the panel. The Original Misti Stamping Tool is very helpful for this. Then I watercolored flowers and leaves and stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set. When both panels were dry I adhered them together using foam tape for dimension. Then I mounted them on a light grey card base and embellished the card with the Cupid’s Kiss Crystals and May Crystals.
For my second card I used again the Lovely Blooms Stamp Set. I stamped it on a piece of water color cardstock with a light brown ink to create a watercolor card in no-line coloring technique. After all blossoms and leaves were colored I masked them and added some ink splatters in black. I used again one of the awesome Sentiments from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set and stamped it on black cardstock then heat white embossed. I mounted my water colored panel on a dark grey cardbase using foam tape. Then I added the Sentiment also using foam tape. Some of the beautiful Cupid’s Kiss Crystals gives the final touch.
My third card I created with the cute Kobi Bearing Gifts Stamp Set in combination with the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames Creative Dies. I stamped the tiny stamps all over a white die cut panel using beige ink. Then I stamped sweet Kobi with all his gifts on a piece of watercolor cardstock. I colored the gifts in all rainbow colors, such fun. I die cut Kobi with coordinating dies. I mounted the stamped panel onto a kraft card base, added Kobi in the middle and heat embossed the sentiment from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set on a piece of pink cardstock using white embossing powder. I embellished the card with some April Crystals.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!
Alexandra from made by Alexandra having the honour to guest design for Studio Katia today and wanted to share with you projects that I have created.
First is this floral card and I have to say that I just love how the Spring Bouquet stamp set come with the flowers already arranged in a bouquet and you don’t need to mask or try to figure out yourself how to arrange the flowers in a bouquet, which for me is the most struggling part when I create a floral card. 🙂
For the coloring I used distress inks which I just smooshed onto a piece of acetate and just picked the color with a water brush. After the coloring was completely dries I went ahead and die cut a circle using Dotted Patterns : Fancy circle Creative dies kept all the tiny pieces and adhered the circle back in place using foam tape to create an inlaid technique . Final touch for the card was to add Clear round drops mix and this card was done.
And while i was playing with florals I couldn’t resist that gorgeous flower from Japanese Peony stamp set and created two cards.
Lately I’ve enjoyed using my alcohol markers to create alcohol ink backgrounds and this peony was the right size for my backgrounds so I stamped it using VersaMark in on vellum and for one card I used white embossing powder and for the other one I used gold embossing powder.
For this card I used the word ”friend” from the Spring bouquet coordinating dies and the other part of the sentiment is stamped and embossed on black cardstock, and added some Iridescent bubbles drops.
For this card I started by stamping that cutie and all the accessories using a light ink and coloured the images using my alcohol markers, trying to achieve a no line coloring. Also felt the need of adding some details to Kobi and for that I used a brown Polychromos pencil and for highlighting the images and for the dots from Kobi’s cheeks I used a white gel pen.
The ”happy birthday” sentiment is from Kobi the birthday bear stamp set and the ”friend ” is from Spring bouquet coordinating dies , to add a bit more interest I also added some sequins from Shimmering ice fusion.
Thank you so much for having me Katia, I had so much fun creating these cards and playing along with all amazing goodies!
Have a lovely day!
Hi everyone!! Laurie here and I’m super excited to be a guest on SK blog today!! The theme is feminine or Mother’s Day cards. This was the perfect theme for me as I needed a card for my sister! My sister is truly my best friend and has helped me out tremendously lately so I wanted to make a card to thank her for everything.
The perfect set for this card is the Best Ever stamp set and matching dies. This set will let almost anyone know that they are “The Best Ever”. To give it a feminine flare, I used the Floral Trimmings which is absolutely gorgeous.
I started by embossing the florals with some Silver Pearl Embossing powder onto some Mixed Media paper. I choose several colours of Distress Inks to colour the flowers.
I stamped twice but only ended up using one. Here’s how the colouring turned out…
I fussy cut around the entire image because at this point I wasn’t 100% sure of what I wanted to do 🙂
I cut down some white cardstock with the largest die from the Dotted Patterns Set 1 Die Set for a mat on my blue card base. I used the same die to cut around the floral image. This gave me one larger floral piece along with a skinny piece.
For the sentiment, I die cut the “best” and “ever” scripty dies out of white cardstock and layered them onto the same colour of cardstock of the card base. I adhered the larger floral piece onto the bottom of the white panel and the skinny piece to the top with foam adhesive.
I also foam mounted the word dies and stamped “sister” directly onto the white panel. I finished the card of with a generous helping of the Sparkling Crystals Mix.
I already gave this card to my sis and she loved it!!
Thank you so much to Studio Katia for having me as a guest today and thank you for stopping by!!
Stay crafty, my friends!!
Hello! My name’s Olesya and I am super happy to be a guest designer at Studio Katia. Their products are of a very good quality and oh those sequins and mixes 🙂 one love!
I have prepared three cards using Studio Katia stamps and dies.
Using gold foil and double-sided tape I made several stripes on the card base.
I stamped a flower from Thank you so much stamp set three times to cut each layer of the flower and pop it up using some foam tape. Colored them with Zig brush pens. Die cut a Thank you sentiment with Thank you so much coordinating dies out of gold foil cardstock. Added a couple Nuvo glitter drops in Honey Gold.
I stamped the images from Thank you so much set and Friends of Winter set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink to color them in with Chameleon alcohol markers and pencils. Cut the elf apart and adhered him as if he’s a flower elf 🙂 Added a sentiment from Blooming Bunch stamp set.
Stamped the image from Blooming Bunch stamp set directly onto a card base, colored it in with Zig brush pens. Die cut a flower with Thank you so much dies, cut it apart to make it look like a bush. Stamped and die cut the elf, colored with Chameleon pencils. Added wings to the garden fairy using left overs after die cutting a bow using Fancy Square dies.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
Hi there crafty friends! Jacquie here from The Big Reveal. I am so pleased to be this month’s Guest Designer for Studio Katia. I pretty much fell in love with Studio Katia with their first release! I love all their unique creative dies, the flowers, and of course, adorable Kobi!
I have made 5 cards for todays post, so sit back and maybe grab a cuppa something warm and enjoy!
My first card uses the beautiful Blooming Bunch stamp set and the awesome Dotted patterns: Scallop frames creative die set! I stamped the floral bouquet on watercolor paper and white heat embossed it. I used watercolor paints to color it. I then used the creative dies on the panel. I cut it out twice and raised the frame to give it more dimension. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum and then adhered the bow to it, and stuck it to my card. I finished it off with some gorgeous crystals from the Cupids Kiss Crystal Mix.
My second card is a fun Valentine’s themed card using the super adorable Kobi’s Hugs and Kisses stamp set. I stamped the images on smooth white cardstock and colored with Copic markers and cut them out. I used the Dotted patterns: Loops creative dies on a piece of warm gray cardstock. I punched out all the circles, but then put a few back in for added interest. I gently blended some soft pink ink on the white card panel. I mounted the die cut piece over the card panel and adhered my Kobi bear to the front. I stamped HUGS in the center of the heart. I finished off again using crystals from the Cupids Kiss Crystal mix.
This third project is possibly my favorite! I stamped the lovely florals along the left edge and bottom of an A2 sized card panel, and then I stamped a few extra on another piece of cardstock. I colored these using Copics, but as you can see, I did a different type of coloring…just some lines highlighting, I didn’t color and blend the whole flower. I wanted it to have a unique look to it. I blended a bit of pale pink ink along the edges here and there. I took the Stitched creative windows die and placed it over my colored piece, and cut it out. I lined up the cut out pieces below, and mounted it using foam tape, making a shaker card. I filled the shaker with the Majestic confetti. I cut out the extra flowers I stamped, as well as the greeting and mounted them on the top of the shaker.
This 4th card uses the gorgeous and unique Floral trimmings set! I love to color with Copics so I stamped this several times and colored them all a bit differently. For this card, I cut out the floral image and set it aside. I then stamped the same image along the bottom of a folded note card in a pale ink. I mounted my colored and cut piece on the note card. I stamped the greeting and added some pretty sparkly sequins from the Crystal clear sequin fusion pack. I love how they picked up the purples and blues!
My final project features a die set that I was so excited to get! I cut out some thick watercolor paper using the Dotted Patterns: Fancy Square die. Then I cut another watercolor panel down and smooshed it in some watercolor paint and set aside to dry. I used the Floral Trimmings Copic colored piece I had left from the last card to fashion a little border along the inside of the frame. I stamped a greeting from Blooming bunch on the watercolored panel and adhered the frame using foam tape. I had originally thought I would make a shaker card, but decided to keep it simple and just adhere a few Iridescent Crystals to the card to finish it off.
That is all for my projects today! Thank you so much to Studio Katia for inviting me to be their guest designer! I really love their projects and have begun collecting them all! (haha!) Have a great day!
