Happy Friday Everyone,
Olga created this fun birthday card combing the Hello Alice and Birthday Lions Clear Stamp Sets.
Birthday banners and hats are from the Birthday Lions Set. The background was created with distress inks.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Liliuska here and I would like to share with you two thank you cards. I love creating black cards using heat embossing and coloured pencils. They have nice elegant look. And today I made two cards for your inspiration.
And even though you do need some time for stamping, heat embossing and quick colouring, I would say that these are pretty quick cards to make if you need to make something for next day.
For the first card I used white pencil and added some details and shadows on the flowers and around the sentiment. I love adding little touches and here I decided to use some drops and white sequins. It makes cards look more interesting.
For the second card I decided to use red pencil and lightly colour flower petals with it. I also added a bit of white shadow around the sentiment to imitate writing on a blackboard.
Hope you will get inspired to create cards with beautiful StudioKatia products. Share your work with us!
Have a wonderful day!
I know that we still have more than two months of school ahead. But I think it’s time for me to start getting ready. Looks like the end of the school comes unexpectedly for the last 8 years of my school mom carrier :). I have already decided on the gifts and as you see, started making cards.
How I love the Teacher’s Apple stamp set. Such adorable images and many great sentiments!
I started off my card from making a bright background using a piece of Taylored Expressions Rainbow Brights pad. Then I die cut a tag with Neenah Solar white cardstock and Studio Katia Dotted Shaker tag.
Then the image. I stamped a crayon with Versafine Onyx Black ink into a piece of Ranger Watercolor paper, colored it with Zigs – 024, 025, 050, and fuzzy cut.
To finish off my card I adhered the crayon with 3D foam tape and added the sentiment from the same stamp set. Hemptique natural bamboo cord I added at the end.
Hope you enjoy!
Svetlana has created this fun shaker card combining a lot of different stamp sets. How cute is this reading fox?
Here’s a close up of the shaker.
Thank You all for stopping by, have a great day!
To start, I did some simple ink blending on watercolour cardstock using Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire. This created a nice sky background. I used a Stitched Rectangle die to cut it out.
I stamped my images onto some ivory cardstock, which I don’t normally do, but I was lazy and it was in front of me. I used my Promarkers for the colouring. I cut each image out and started to create my scene.
Hello, Erica here!
I have another big project to share with you today. These were actually not planned at all but rather an after-thought. Or more a necessity to use the eight mandalas I had coloured. Yep, you read that right; eight. Sometimes I like sitting down just to colour and the Mandala stamp is so fun to try different colour combinations on.
All of them are heat embossed in white on Strathmore Bristol Vellum water coloured paper as I wanted to use my Zig markers. It actually started with just the one but I didn’t like how that one turned out, I went with the wrong colours and it annoyed me so much that I had to try redeeming myself. So what started as a quick redemption colouring ended up a colouring marathon. I stamped up another one and another one and another one.. I was on such a roll that I ended up with eight coloured mandalas. At least they are all somewhat different from each other. After that first fateful one, I decided to stick to the same colour for each one, just varying the shades of it and that worked out much better. I think that might have been the turning point as well as the starting point of the colouring marathon.
Well, at some point I managed to rein myself in and stop with the stamping and colouring. I fussycut them all out and decided to do small square note cards with the mandalas. Using white backgrounds didn’t really work, I thought they were too boring. Ink blending was too big a job after my marathon. It really is too bad that colouring isn’t counted as cardio! I’d be fit as a fiddle!
Back to the backgrounds: I cut out stitched squares in water colouring paper and got the Gansai Tambi 36 pack out as well as a short bristled paint brush. Matching the droplet colours to the mandalas I got splattering like a mad woman. I love doing this, every single piece looks different and unique. The one for the pink mandala got sweeping pink brush strokes too as the pink looked way too red. Whilst letting the panels dry, I decided on sentiments for the cards. I thought it would be overkill to use the same one for all eight so I divided them up relatively evenly colourwise.
At this point I thought these might make a nice present for someone and having generic but useful sentiments would be the best way to go. I chose ‘Thanks’ from Duo Talk for half of them.
For the other half I went with ‘Just a Note’ from Hello Alice. These I stamped in black ink in the bottom right corner.
On my white card bases I adhered the backgrounds with foam tape and then the mandalas were added using slightly thinner foam tape. I love foam tape, it just adds a little something to a card without the addition of embellishments and the likes. Not that I didn’t toy with the idea of other embellishments but you will be surprised to hear I decided against it. Miracles happen, right?
Well, that’s it from me today. Happy crafting and see you soon again!
Valentyna here with another card featuring Together We Bloom stamp set. Love this flowers! They are so easy to color and to fuzzy cut. Small elements allow arranging pretty composition.
To start off my card I chose a white card base and stenciled it with very new Nuvo Embellishment mousse using Holtz Speckles stencil. While the stenciling was drying I stamped flower/leaf elements onto Neenah Solar white cardstock and colored them with Chameleon pens. After coloring I fuzzy cut all elements to prepare them for the placing onto the
white frame I die cut earlier with Studio Katia Stitched Creative Window.
As my background came up very busy I decided to go with a tiny sentiment. Which, actually, fits this layout perfectly. I miss you from the And the Fox Says set stamped onto the banner from Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames die set. I cut it with scissors to fit into small space between flower and frame edge.
Lastly, three Clear Round drops to finish the card.
Hope you like ti!
Thank you for visiting!
Hi everyone Svetlana here with a fun Birthday Card. Featuring Lions and beautiful peonies. SUPPLIES:
I wanted to create a floral border with lions in the center. I used ZIG clean color real brush tip markers to color my lions on the water color card stock.
I love how this card turned out, I hope you do too.
Have a great day!
Hi everyone and happy Monday!! Today I’m sharing a card using one of the stamp sets from Studio Katia’s latest release! And it’s a cutey!! The stamp set is called Hello Alice and features a little girl and her cat, among other little images!
I started by stamping the girl and the kitty in Versamark Onyx Black onto some watercolour cardstock. I then created a rainy background using Distress Inks. I didn’t mask the images off, I was just super careful when painting around them. Before I did colour them, I flicked water on the background for that super cool bleached look.
