Well hello again friends, Ilda here!
Today I have the perfect card to mass-produce for the Holidays! It was one of those cards that came together so easily and so quickly that I have to share with you my process.
To start I die cut a piece of green and red cardstock out using the HALF STRIPED COVER. I then flipped over the die-cut green layer and glued it to the red layer. Because you will be seeing the underside of the die-cut piece, make sure your cutting plates are new or smooth, or you can use a piece of cardstock underneath to avoid the transfer of impressions onto the paper.
I then glued the panel onto the card base.
Next, I stamped out the Happy Holidays stamp from the GIFT TAG GREETINGS:WINTER onto black cardstock and then white heat embossed the letters, trimmed the piece out and then added to the center of the card front.
Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoyed this quick and easy tutorial.
Until next time… Happy Crafting!
Hello everyone! Liliuska here and I am very excited to share the cards I made for today’s post. Few weekends ago I was playing with some of the new Studio Katia products and my plan was to make something non-traditional for Christmas cards. Then, as I was browsing through the stencils, Autumn Leaves Stencil caught my eye… I started with a purple and gold palette – which is a bonus card at the end of this post. Next, I decided to make black and white Christmas cards, and I love the result more than I could’ve expected.
I started working with two black panels. I covered both in white texture paste through Autumn Leaves Stencil, removed the stencil and while the paste was still wet I generously poured Sparkle Glitter over one panel first, then the other. I know how messy glitter can be, but I have in my stash an old cloth called ‘glitter magnet’ and always use it when working with glitter. There are many ways these days to keep the glitter from spreading everywhere, so make sure to be prepared. I set both panels aside to dry and started working on other details for the cards.
I knew I will make one vertical and one horizontal card (or portrait and landscape orientation). For the horizontal, I wanted to add poinsettias from Merry Poinsettia Stamp Set embossed on vellum with white embossing powder. I didn’t want to cover too much of that gorgeous background, so my “add-ons” had to be light and airy. Well, at least some of them.
After heat embossing poinsettia flowers and some leaves on a 32 lbs vellum, I die cut them out with Coordinating Dies. Next, using a smaller frame dies from Dotted Patterns Set 2 I die cut out a frame for the sentiment out of black cardstock. I picked one of the sentiments from Poinsettia Trimmings stamp set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
Once my textured panel was dry, I decided to make it a bit smaller by die cutting it out with a large frame die from Dotted Patterns Set 3. I foam mounted it onto a white card base, gluing underneath the panel a piece of beautiful silver lace fabric, which a friend of mine brought for me from her trip to France. Next, I foam mounted the sentiment panel at the bottom of the card, gluing underneath the poinsettias and two leaves. As a final touch I added some Arctic Breeze Pearls into the flower centres, in the spot where I attached the leaves and on the sentiment banner with the help of some Studio Katia GLUE and Jewel Picker Tool.
Once my panel for the second card was dry I used a large frame die from Darling Ribbon & Frames to die cut it out and give a nice finished border, since it would be covering the card base completely. I heat embossed Snowflakes images onto the same 32 lbs vellum using white embossing powder and die cut them out with Coordinating Dies.
For the sentiment I die cut out a banner using small die from Half Striped Cover Die set out of black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Border stamp set using clear embossing ink and white embossing powder. I foam mounted the banner onto a card, gluing snowflakes underneath. I coloured the banner with clear Wink of Stella and covered it with Nuvo Crystal Glaze.
For the third card I grabbed a piece of purple shimmer cardstock. I ink blended the background through Autumn Leaves Stencil using Milled Lavender Oxide Ink and Studio Katia Ink Blender Brush. I used a large frame die from Darling Ribbon & Frames to die cut out a panel once the ink was dry.
Next, I heat embossed poinsettias from Merry Poinsettia stamp set with gold embossing powder. To colour the images I used different shades of purple Oxide Inks and Studio Katia Ink Blender Brush. I blended darker shades from centre out and lighter shades from the tips of the petals towards the centres of the flowers. I die cut out the flowers with Coordinating Dies.
I used largest die from Dotted Patterns Set 2 to die cut out three thin frames out of purple cardstock and one thin frame out of golden glitter cardstock. I glued all the frames together using Studio Katia GLUE. This gave me a nice sturdy frame, which I adhered onto the ink blended panel.
Using the same Dotted Patterns Set 2 I cut out a panel out of 32 lbs vellum, so it would perfectly fit inside the golden frame. I stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Border stamp set onto the vellum panel and adhered it inside golden frame adding glue under the sentiment and the spot where I was planning to adhere flowers, so that the glue wouldn’t show anywhere and not ruin the card. I foam mounted the flowers to the left from the sentiment. As a final touch I added some Gold Foil Pearls into the flower centres and above the sentiment with the help of Studio Katia GLUE and Jewel Picker Tool.
Hope you enjoyed all the inspiration I prepared for you today. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful and inspiring day!
Hi there! Emily here with you today, and I have a project inspired by the beautiful that I remember from my youth! I love the elegance of white Christmas lights, but I have always loved the nostalgic feeling of the soft glow of colored Christmas lights. The Crystal Rainbow sequins and Crystal Rainbow Confetti remind me of colored Christmas lights, so I used those as my inspiration for today’s shaker card. Let’s get started with the details!
I began with an A2 panel of white cardstock, and using the new Ink Blender Brushes, blended pink, purple, electric blue, teal, and yellow inks to create that soft Christmas light glow.
I then die cut the Half Striped Cover Die from some iridescent white cardstock, backed it with acetate, and added foam tape to create a shaker card. I filled the shaker with lots of Crystal Rainbow sequins and Crystal Rainbow Confetti.
Well, that’s all for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a marvelous day!
First, I stamped cute image from the HAPPY PAWLIDAYS Stamp Set. I colored this images with alcohol markers and cut them out using coordinating dies. I added some highlights with white and silver gel pen.
Next, I blended some distress inks onto a white paper panel. For the panel to look more interesting, I added some splatter and once the panel was dry I added some dots with silver gel pen.
At the bottom of the card I added two pieces of white glittered cardstock to make snowy hills, which I die cut out using one of the dies from TRIMMINGS BORDER dies.
I foam mounted one of the hills and adorable furry friends onto ink blended panel and heat embossed the sentiment from HAPPY PAWLIDAYS onto a strip of vellum using liquid platinum embossing powder. I embellished the card with IRIDESCENT ICE FLAKES.
Thank you so much for joining me today, have a great day!
Hello everyone! We have very exciting news today to share! Help us welcome back to the Team very talented Olga Moss! Leave comments for her under this post in order to win a $15 Gift Certificate to Studio Katia Store.
Hello-hello, my friends! Olga Moss is here with you today.
My today’s card features a stunning background with new Floral Snowflake Stencil. I also think that this stencil would work great to decorate your windows or walls for Christmas. This card design is easy to make and easy to mass-produce should you need multiples.
I started to work on this project by making background. Here I blended two shades of purple moving from the edge to the center. Next, I applied golden glitter paste through the stencil onto my panel.
To lighten the color of the paste a little and add some shimmer, I sprinkled some new Sparkle glitter on top. The main thing is to do it quickly while the paste is still wet. This glitter is rather amazing for Christmas projects such as this one. It is easy to work with and it looks simply stunning.
With the paste applied to the background, I set the panel aside to dry and started to work on a sentiment. I heat embossed the sentiment from the new Gift Tag Greetings: Winter Stamp Set using white embossing powder on black cardstock. By the time I was done with sentiment my background panel has had enough time to dry, I adhered it to an A2 white top folding card base.
Next, I foam mounted the sentiment panel in the center of the card. To add more gold to this project I used Gold Foil Pearls.
I love simple card design like this. It feel very classy to me, and very eye-catching and beautiful at the same time. I hope you like this card idea!
Hi there! Emily Midgett here with you today, and I’ve got a pair of simple stenciled holiday cards to share with you using some of the newest stencils from the Winter 2019 release! The new Floral Snowflake Stencil and Snowflake Stencils have such beautiful, intricate details that are still picked up perfectly with some light ink blending! Let’s get started with the details.
I used the same basic technique for both projects. I began by laying the stencil down on an A2 panel of colored cardstock, then used the new Blender Brushes to blend a dark and light shade of the same color of ink, concentrating the darker color in the center of the stencil.
For the aqua card, I oriented the Snowflake Stencil in the center of the aqua cardstock panel, then used a light and dark turquoise to blend the details of the snowflake over the stencil, leaving the pale aqua cardstock to shine through. I trimmed the stenciled panel down and mounted it on a panel of aqua glitter cardstock.
For the greeting, I heat embossed the “peace on earth” from the Poinsettia Border stamp set onto some vellum using white embossing powder. I adhered it to the center of the snowflake panel using clear dimensional adhesive. The final step was to add some Arctic Breeze Pearls to add an icy, shimmering element to the card!
I used the same technique for my second project, this time using some pretty purple inks with the Floral Snowflake Stencil, concentrating the deep purple in the center and the lighter purple towards the edges.
For the greeting, I stamped a sentiment from Gift Tag Greetings onto a small rectangle of lavender cardstock, then mounted it on a slightly larger piece of purple foil. I mounted it to the stenciled snowflake panel using foam adhesive, then added some Arctic Breeze Pearls and sequins.
Well, that’s all for my projects today! I love these new stencils from the latest release; I hope you’ll go check them out. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
Hello everyone! Isha here sharing a CAS shaker card using some of the new winter release goodies. I love the new Floral Snowflake Stencil so much and of coarse the snowflake stamp and dies. I decided to use just the die for my card today.
I started by applying some distress ink through the stencil using the new ink blender brush. I really love the soft and even result we get with them. I then die-cut snowflake and adhered the cut snowflake to a white cardbase. Now, I adhered acetate onto the back side of the panel. Add some Frost and Fine glitter onto the snowflake on the card. Apply double sided tape around the snowflake and the cardbase. Adhere the stencil panel to the card. This way, the card isn’t bulky and is perfect for quick mailing. Flick some black splatters and let it dry. I then die-cut the word Merry 3 times from white cardstock and once from glitter cardstock. I then added some color to the glitter word. Stack them all and adhere to the shaker window. Stamp and adhere the word Christmas.
To finish, I added some of the Icy Crystals. Thank you for dropping by! Have a nice crafty day!
Hi everyone! It’s Laura here and today I am back with a fun winter card with a slider tag, created with the Studio Katia Slider Tag dies and Kobi’s Ice Day stamp set. There is also a video at the end of this post, in case you are interested in watching the card making process and seeing how to assemble the slider tag.
For the card background I started by die cutting some watercolor cardstock with the Darling Ribbon & Frames dies. I then used my Nuvo Shimmer powder in the color Lilac Waterfall to create a shimmery and textured look. Once the background was dry, I heat embossed some snowflakes from the Snowflake set with White Puff Twinkle embossing powder.
I cut some more watercolor cardstock with the Slider Tag dies. I obtained three die cuts and added some more Nuvo Shimmer Powders to two of them (the one in the middle and the one in the background). I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflakes set on the bacgkround panel. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
The images I used are part of the Kobi’s Ice Day stamp set. I stamped on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock with Spectrum Noir Finesse Alcohol Proof ink and colored them with Illustrator markers. I thed die cut them with the coordinating dies.
I glued everything to a top-folding A2 card base and embellished the card front with some sequins from the Pink Winter Mix and that finished off my card.

It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and these days I am making a lot of Christmas cards. I made this one with an awesome Studio Katia new release!
Take a look:
First, I stamped out the images from Happy snowman stamp set. I decided to make a scene using them, so I used masking technique to get some extra dimention. Once everything was stamped I used alcohol markers to color it in.
For the background I decided to use ink blending technique since Studio Katia recently released ink blending brushes that I was dieing to use! I decided to go with blue shades of distress oxides.
After the inkblending was done, I took a scalloped ractangle from a Scalloped frames die set and die cut it. I wanted to use one of the new dies as well, so I took the Mini polka dots cover die and use it on a top portion of the rectangle to make it look like snow.
I added the sentiment that reads ‘Merry Christmas’ and can be found in Poinsetia border stamp set which has some awesome and bold sentiments.
Then, I finished the card off by glueing everything together using Studio Katia glue and double sided foam tape.
Thank you for joining me!
