Origami Winter Clear Stamp Set
Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames Creative Dies
I hope you enjoyed today’s “Christmas in July” card! Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!!
Svitlana is here. The theme of this week here at Studio Katia is Christmas in July and our Design Team will be sharing Christmas cards. It’s time to slowly start making holiday cards, isn’t it? Especially if you send a lot.
I’m a big lover of everything Christmas related and of course i love making holiday cards. And now, in July, when it’s so hot – holiday cardmaking help me to survive the summer, given the hope that winter is coming.
Today I want to share a fun flamingos card today.
I added accessories to them and tangles them together with light strings. Then they were colored with COPICs. With white gel pen I colored some lights. And stamped the sentiment in the bottom.
After that I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.
Have a wonderful week!

Erica here with a few delicious cards!
Yep, three greetings today as I have three cards for you. When Katia told me we were doing a collaboration with Sunny Studio Stamps I wanted all the stamps. I’m not even exaggerating, like All. The. Stamps! After much deliberation back and forth (and mainly because I HAD to make a decision or I’d probably still be deliberating) I got the Two Scoops stamp set, as well as the coordinating die, because I’m a bit of an ice cream monster.
My first idea was to use the sentiment ‘What’s the scoop, sweet thing?’ and have a cone with loads of scoops of ice cream in it. I wanted it to look like each scoop was a different flavor so I mixed and matched my stamped and die cut scoops until I had the desired height of my cone and then I adhered them all together with foam tape as I wanted them popped off the card. Background wise I wanted quite a plain panel so it didn’t distract too much from the ice cream cone and I decided to make my own patterned paper using the same inks as I had used for the scoops to make it a perfect colour match. The little sprinkle stamp in the set was just what I was looking for and again, I went to town with the stamping. I can be quite the force to be reckoned with once I get on a roll!
As the rest of the background is quite plain… or at least plain-ish…. I added some details by die cutting some pattern into the panel using the A2 sized rectangle as well as the flourished frame in the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames creative cuts before adding the whole thing to a card base. Once it was on the card base, I popped it back into the MISTI and stamped the sentiment I picked earlier on it in a lovely teal colour, EXCEPT I masked off the word ‘sweet’ as I wanted to substitute it with a die cut that said the same thing. I cut it out in white card stock and shaded the bottom of it in the same ink as I stamped the rest of the sentiment to create an ombre effect. One last final flourish for this card was a scattering of sequins from the Crystal Rainbow fusion which I adhered with glossy accents.
For my second card I tried something completely different and cut out a card base, a 8″x3.5″ rectangle shape, out of mint green card stock. It is a thin, long card and the plan was to have a parade of ice cream cones on it! I’m trying to make more use of my patterned paper rather than just hoarding it (I’m totally guilty of doing this) so I cut out a 3″ wide strip of pastel coloured plaid patterned paper which I added to the middle of the card with double sided tape.
My last card was super quick as I had “left over” ice creams as well as a ready-made background panel which I added some details to by running it through my BigShot with the dotted rectangle A2 die from the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames. Then it was a quick glue and foam tape job to add the ice creams, stamp the sentiment and add some clear sequins from the Crystal Clear sequin fusion and done!
That’s it from me for this time but don’t forget to hop along the whole hop and check out everyone’s contribution, not to mention leave comments for your chance to win some fabulous stuff!
Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday Everyone, Svetlana here!
If you missed the previous post make sure to see it here.
Today I have another interactive card, featuring Kobi the Birthday Bear!
Kobi the Birthday Bear | Bundle
Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames Creative Die
Vintage Sheer Fusion
I’ve started with the base, I’ve stamped gifts onto the card base. Then I used masking tape and covered the gifts, created my background with distress ink and then colored all the images with zig clear markers.
For the interactive part, I’ve added more gifts and a Happy Birthday sentiment to the panel. So when you pull up you can see the message. For the embellishments, I add some Vintage Sheer sequins.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hello, hello! Erica back on the blog with a super simple and fun to make card today.
I recently got some of the Colour Bursts pigments and thought I’d try them out for today’s card. I’m still on a ‘thank you’ card roll and this one is no different. There are many ways of using these colours: you can mix them with water and using them as water colours, you can sprinkle them dry onto paper and then spritz water on for fun effects or you can do it the other way around and add water first and then the colours. I decided to do the last one.
To begin with I got the Thank You So Much stamp set out, makes sense doesn’t it, seeing as it was going to be a thank you card. Plus I’m a flower nut. Two birds, one rock and all that!
I used RangerInk water colour card stock for this card as it’s nice and white. I figured the colours would be very vibrant as I got the Caribbean colour mix and thought the white would be a nice contrast. As there was going to be plenty of water involved, I decided to heat emboss the leaves in a pattern directly on the background. The flower itself I stamped on a separate piece of water colour card stock.
I must admit I was a bit nervous about the whole thing before I got started but there was no need, it was great fun! I will say that it is best to do it on a prepared surface as it can be a bit messy, I have some stains on my coffee table now that will be difficult to get rid off without sanding the table down! LOL! Oh, it’s also a good idea to tape down the card stock you are going to use as otherwise you won’t have much control over where the water and the colour goes.
Right-o, back to the card making/mess making: I spritzed water on the background with a mini mister and then sprinkled the green colour burst directly onto the wet areas. It was MESMERISING to watch the colours come to life and swirl around! I quickly moved on to the flower and used Tangerine first, in a much smaller quantity and just a TINY sprinkling of Fuchsia on top. A little bit of water added here and there to make the colours less opaque did the trick. Basically, go small and steady when using these, they pack a colourful punch!
Setting the background and the flower aside to dry, I moved on to the sentiment. I used the ‘thank you’ die that comes in the stamp and die coordinating bundle. I cut one out in foam tape to create dimension and another piece in black card stock, these two pieces I layered together and set aside.
When everything was dry, I cut out the flower with the coordinating die as well as a piece of foam tape. These two I layered in the same manner I did the thank you die. Once all these pieces were done, it was time to cut a card base and I choose black card stock for this. I trimmed down the background panel just a little, little bit so that the black card base would frame the sentiment, which was going in the bottom right hand corner. We are talking perhaps 1/4 of a centimetre. After I had added the thank you die cut to the card, I added glossy accents to it as well to make it really pop.
This card did not take long to make at all and you can make it even faster if you use a heat gun to set the colours. Sure, the glossy accents still need to dry but if you are in a hurry, you could just skip this step.
That’s it from me for today but don’t forget to check back in a few days as we have a really fun collaboration happening, I can’t wait to show you my cards I made for it!
Happy crafting from Erica
Today I have another card featuring Together We Bloom peonies. This time it is a shaker card.
Together We Bloom Clear Stamp Set
Together We Bloom Coordinating Dies
Dotted Ovals Creative Dies
Lilac Bush Fusion
Luminous Lavender Sequins 4MM/6MM
To make a shaker window I cut the upper layer from the paper and foam using two biggest Dotted Ovals dies. Then I cut a shaker pouch using the biggest die and clear stamp sleeve. I didn’t sew the pouch. I adhered it with double sided tape and filled the inside with sequins Luminous Lavander, Iridescent Butterflies, and Flowers.
Peonies were stamped with Memento Black ink and colored with Chameleons – V04, GR3. After cutting flowers with matching dies.Instead of stamped sentiment, I used die-cut Hello which comes with You’re So Ranunculus matching die set.
Thank you for stopping by!
Hey stampers, Anni here!
So happy and honored to be a guest designer for Studio Katia this month.
I had so much fun playing with these super cute stamps. For my cards today I used the set called Foxes. I am a big fan of foxes and it is very hard, well, let’s say impossible, to resist fox stamps. And this set is especially awesome.
I started by stamping all images in this set on white cardstock with alcohol marker friendly ink. I didn’t use all the images in the end but I like to colour all the images to have a few to choose from. For the colouring I decided to go with Copics because I love the bright colours.
I have something shocking to tell you: I am a fan of fussy cutting. With the coordinating dies it seems I could never get them in the right place and never end up with an even border around the images. I don’t know why but I found the ones from Studio Katia much easier to use and you may notice that I got a satisfying result.
For my first card I used a die from the set Dotted Pattern Set 1 and for the sentiment the hello die from the You’re Ranunculus Coordinating die set. For a little bit of interest I stamped and heat embossed some mushrooms on my cardbase.
I assembled the card and added some sequins for the finishing touch.
My second card is a real clean and simple one.
I just added a Mini Thank You die cut to my sleeping fox. I think such a cute image can stand on its own.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
Happy Thursday everyone, Kristina here with another floral card for today featuring the Stitched Creative Window and Duo Talk Clear Stamp set.
First I diecut the frame out with the Creative Window Creative Die several times from white paper and once from a silver glitter paper. Then I die cut the background panel with a largest Creative Rectangle die.
On my panel I’ve traced all the windows with a pencil to mark spots for my flowers. In the windows I’ve stamped the flowers from the set of Painted Flowers from Altenew were stained with black water-resistant ink. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush and Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen instead of water. These pens are perfect for that.
It’s hard to see the shine in the photo, but the flowers are very glittery. In the center I’ve stamped the Thanks sentiment. After that, I’ve glued all the white frames and glued the last layer glitter and pasted on the panel with the florals. After that, I cut down a rectangular panel of white Woodgrain paper from SSS using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die by SSS. To finish the card I’ve adhered it all together on a white cardbase panel.
Thank You all for stopping by and have a great day!
Valentyna is here and the celebration of the summer with Mini Release continues.
For my card, I chose images from Birthday Lions Clear Stamp Set, Birthday Lions Coordinating Dies, Kobi the Birthday Bear Stamp Set, and Brush Stroke Stripes for the background. The background stamped in SSS Duckling, Willow, and Thistle.

Few layers of stamping with Duckling ink. Sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Majestic Fusion sequins.

For the Kobi
Didn’t want this lovely green background to be left sitting on my desk. I used Kobi the Birthday Bear Stamp Set and matching die to create one more birthday card.
Hope you like them too!
Thank you for stopping by!
