Hello Studio Katia fans! Amanda here today with a Christmas card I’ve made using the super sweet Winter Kobi stamps and coordinating die sets! I started by stamping all my images and Copic coloring them. Then I cut a snow hill from a die in my stash and the background panel using the rectangle from Dotted Patterns Set 1. I distress inked my sky using Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire. I stamped this pretty Merry Christmas sentiment in the Sweet Holiday Clear Stamp set and I thought it fit perfectly!
I was concerned to try and draw my rope leading from Kobi to the sled, so I noticed that the balloon string on Kobi The Birthday Bear stamp set would work perfectly. I assembled and glued down my scene and found some pretty red paper to use as my base on top of my card layer. I added some Majestic Confetti around the scene to add a little more shine!
Thanks SO MUCH for joining me today!
This week we have a great Theme Week for your inspiration: Thank you/Fall Cards. Our designers will inspire you to create beautiful Fall cards and creative Thank you cards. Just like today’s Thank you card from Tracy – different and very cute winter themed thank you card.
Hey guys Tracy here, I hope you are all having an awesome week.
I am sure lots of you are like me and like to get the most out of your craft supplies, I often use seasonal stamps for non seasonal cards by combining them with other stamp sets.
I started off by stamping and colouring the little cute gingerbread image with Prismacolor pencils. I then die cut the image out using the co ordinating dies.
For the background I used Distress Oxide Inks in Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick and smooshed them onto my craft mat and added some water using my water sprayer. I then took some acetate and used the ink smooshing technique to create the background, I’m not that good at this but I love it as a technique and find it so much fun.
Once the background was dry I die cut it using the rectangle from Dotted Patterns Set 1.
I used some Patterned paper from Simple Stories and trimmed it to size to fit the front of an A2 top folding notecard and adhered it flat.
I stamped the sentiment “I give awesome hugs” from the Duo talk set in the bottom corned using Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink and adhered the panel to the card.
To add some dimension I used foam tape to adhere the coloured image to the card and of course I couldn’t resist adding some sequins. I used sequins from the Pink Winter Fusion mix and Magic Mint mix to finish the whole card off.
I hope I have inspired you to stretch those stamp sets a little further.
Have a great day and happy crafting,
Hello there, Michelle here and I am delighted to be Guest Designing with Studio Katia. I have two cards to share with you today. My first card uses the adorable Meowy Halloween Stamp Set and coordinating dies.
I started off by stamping the kitty from the set on to white cardstock. I coloured her using Copic Markers and then cut her out using coordinating dies. I took a panel of white cardstock and cut an aperture from it using one of the dies from the Dotted Pattern: Scallop Frames Die Set. I then stamped the sentiment below the aperture with black ink.
On to a piece of Bristol cardstock, I blended over purple and black Distress Inks to create a background. This piece I then adhered to the front of a black A2 card base. Next I added window panel on top with foam tape. I added the kitty to the centre, also with foam tape. To finish off, I adhered few Clear Round Drops.
I started off by stamping Kobi, his sleigh and presents on some white cardstock using black ink. The images were then coloured using Copic Markers and cut out using the coordinating dies. I took a piece of white cardstock and cut it using the largest scallop die from the Dotted Pattern: Scallop Frames Die Set. I freehand cut a mask for the snow and added this to the bottom of the panel. I then blended over Broken China Distress Ink to create a soft sky background.
Next I removed the mask and added Kobi, his sleigh and presents on to a panel with foam tape. I stamped a sentiment from Friends of Winter Stamp Set using black ink. I then adhered the whole panel on to a white A2 card base with foam tape. To finish off, I added few Crystal Rainbow Confetti.
Thank you so much for visiting the blog today! I hope you have a great day!
It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts with my first solo post on Studio Katia blog! I am super excited and I hope you will like the card. 🙂
Take a look at what I have created:
I decided to make a cute Christmas card with a galaxy background. First, I cut a piece of white cardstock, that was slightly smaller than the card base and I die cut the Dotted oval shape on the left hand side.
I took my card base and started making the background. I covered the paper with mustard seed, fired brick and seedless preserves distress inks. Then, I took a black soot color and put a light coat of it on top. The colors in the back are now a muted down quite a lot and this helps it look like a galaxy. The last thing that I did on the background were the white splotches that look like stars and this makes our galaxy even more beautiful.
I stamped a cute dear from newly released set called Friends of winter and decided to add a sleigh with some gifts next to him, so it looks like he is delivering gifts all over the galaxy. I colored the stamped images with my watercolor markers.
The last thing I added was Merry christmas sentiment in the top right corner. I glued everything together with some double sided tape and foam rectangles and the card was all finished! 🙂
Thank you so much for joining me! See you next time.
Hello Everyone! Amanda here sharing some super fun Christmas tags that I’ve started making for the upcoming holiday season! I make lots of tags and attach them to gifts, it’s funny how people often love the handmade tag or card as much as the gift itself!
I started by cutting my tag base using the brand new Dotted Shaker Tag – 2 Dies with some heavy weighted white cardstock. I absolutely love the shape and pierced detail this die offers! Using my round sponge dauber, I applied Broken China Distress ink and a white acrylic paint splatter with a small round paint brush. I always cut my white paint with water 50/50 to thin it out a bit, it makes a perfect snowflake or star consistency on my projects.
I Copic colored and cut out the images from Friends of Winter and Origami Winter stamp sets. I glued down the package and tree, then foam popped the characters up for a dimensional look. To finish off my tags, I tied some eyelash yarn into the diecut circle on top, I love the sparkle this adds to my tags!
Thank you all so much for stopping, I hope you’ve enjoyed my Studio Katia projects and are inspired to make your own handmade tags for the holidays!
Hello Everyone! I am super excited to share my first solo post with you on the Studio Katia Blog.
I’m not sure about you but no matter how much I plan I always seem to not have enough Christmas cards and end up having to make more. This year I have been looking for ways to create some easy cards that I can create in bulk. The new Friends Of Winter Stamp set is perfect for this, especially the cute little snowman.
I have created these cards using minimal supplies and time.
To start off I stamped the snowmen onto some Bristol Smooth paper and coloured them using Prismacolor pencils, I used only one pencil per colour for quickness. I die cut them out using the coordinating dies and added some Glossy Accents to the eyes and buttons.
Whilst I waited for them to dry I die cut some more Bristol Smooth using the rectangle from the Dotted Patterns Set 1 and using a blending tool I did some basic inking using Distress Oxide in Broken China. I made some sparkle spray by adding some Perfect Pearls to water and spraying the pieces and blotting them off. Once dry I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Origami Winter set and stamped it on all 3 panels.
I created some A2 top folding notecards from some Neenah and using some Simple Stories paper in coordinating colours I trimmed them down to A2 and adhered them to the note cards. I added some dimension by popping them up with foam tape and adhered the rest of the card together.
I still thought the cards needed something and the new Snow Crystals are perfect for this type of card to just add that little something, and of course they make the perfect snowflakes 🙂
The 3 cards took me very little time to create and you can cut the time down even further by not using glossy accents, I know these will be my cards for bulk making this holiday season.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you have a great day.

Hello and welcome to Day 4 of our Fall+Winter Release Preview Week.
Today is the last Preview Day before the Big Reveal tomorrow and our New Release Blog Hop. We are so excited about all the new products coming to the store on September 15th! Enjoy more fabulous stamp sets today and fantastic creations from our Design Team. They had a blast playing with all new stamps, dies and embellishments.
These Fall and Winter themed products will be available On September 15th!
I started off by stamping and colouring images from the Sweet Holiday set and die cutting them with coordinating dies. For the background I cut out scalloped rectangle die, heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder and starry sky with clear glitter embossing powder. I created snowy hillsides by cutting out scalloped rectangle from white cardstock and cutting hillside shapes out of it.
For my card base I layered heavyweight white cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ with red cardstock cut to 4 1/8″ by 5 3/8″. I thought this would help me frame my scene and tie in the red elements in the stamped images with the rest of the card. I then glued everything to my card base, and, for a finishing touch, I added a few of the newly released Snow Crystals around the sentiment.
Winter holidays are my favorite, so there was no question about what I want to create with the Sweet Holiday set. I like making shakers for every season, especially winter. I started with die cutting a scalloped frame for the shaker. I inked the background, stamped, coloured and die cut images for the scene. I covered the background scene with acetate, that way sequins won’t touch the house, nor the snow banks in the background. Now I just need to arrange the characters and – my favourite part – fill the shaker with sequins. I used Iridescent Magnolia Fusion; Vintage Sheer Fusion; Majestic; Silver Dust Seed Beads and Clear Dust Seed Beads.
As soon as I saw the new Friends of winter set I fell in love! Thats why I decided to stamp all of the images and colour them with my alcohol markers. In the end, I only ended up using the Santa on this card, but I will use the others on another project. I wanted to keep the card quite simple so I blended only two colours of ink in the background. I left the bottom part of the card white.
While the colours were still wet I used some perfect pearls on top of them for a lovely shimmer. The last thing on the background were the white splotches that I made with white paint. I just had to try new Dotted patterns – scalloped frames die, so I put it as a focal point behind my Santa. I trimmed the background just a bit for a nice white border around the edge. It looks like the white splotches are snow so I stamped the sentiment that says Let it snow from Friends of winter set to finish off the card.
Olga created fun and colourful wobbler card for today’s preview. Those googly eyes are just perfect to add to the images as another fun detail.
We hope you have enjoyed this look at Sweet Holiday Stamp Set & Coordinating Dies and Friends of Winter Stamp Set & Coordinating Dies! Come back tomorrow for the Big Reveal of our Release and a Blog Hop filled with fabulous and inspiring projects!!

These Fall and Winter themed products will be available On September 15th!
I stamped the single flower and several leaves from the Marry Poinsettia Stamp Set. I was going for a no-line watercolour look. I embossed a panel for the card front and popped on Dotted Shaker Tag using foam tape. I then die cut my flowers and leaves using the coordinating dies for the Merry Poinsettia Stamp Set and arranged them on to the tag. In the end I die cut the word Merry in silver and glued it on the tag. For some bling I added beautiful Majestic Fusion Sequin Mix and for pop of colour I added some home made enamel dots in red.
Isn’t it just a beautiful stamp set?! And you get THREE flowers with beautiful sentiment stamps.
I used a stamp set Merry Poinsettia and a die sentiment from coordinating dies. I colored flowers using alcohol markers and decorated middle of the flowers with gold beads. I cut out few phrases using black cardstock and glued several diecuts to get a nice pop-up embellishment. I cut a panel using Fancy Square dies and painted the frame with gold paint.
For today’s preview I have a fun wintery shaker card featuring Winter Kobi stamp set. First I’ve stamped and coloured Christmas lights for the background. Next I’ve stamped Kobi, Santa’s sack and sleigh, coloured them and die cut the images using the coordinating dies. I made a frame for the shaker and filled it with new Iridescent Veil, Majestic Confetti, Clear Round Drops and Silver Dust beads. This turned out to be a very fun scenery card.
