Today I have exciting news to share with you! We have another talented designer joining our growing Studio Katia team!
Please join us in welcoming the talented Olga.
Hello! My name is Olga. And I am a Russian crafter. I am a mother of two boys and a cat. They are my World and my inspiration. I’m crazy about clean and simple and American styles since 2013 and now I don’t represent my life without them. For me, CAS versatile! And I love to learn it from different sides, to grope, to savor!
Here are a just a few card using Studio Katia Creative Dies.
Have a lovely day!
The card base and the shaker border are made out of Neenah Solar White cardstock, and the dimensional part I cut out from white foam.
I used regular foam, not sticky back one. To make it sticky I adhered Stick-It sheets on the both sides. It’s so thin, that I didn’t have any problems at all die-cutting foam with Stick-It on both sides.
Inside of the shaker I placed snowflakes mentioned as well as some Icy Clear Seed Beads. Lastly I stamped the sentiment.
Shakers are fun cards, especially they’re fun for recipients. But they’re a bit more time consuming to make. So I this time I decided to go with the simpler design. And like how it turned out.
I like how clean it is. With some deep blue in the shaker window. I imagine this card as a view on a snowy night through the window 😉
Have a wonderful day!
Here is a close up.
Valentyna here and today I want to share another Christmas card using Origami Winter stamp set. I haven’t done any card with this kind of colors. Not Christmas colors. I love how everything came together.
Firstly, I embossed tree and the piece of watercolor paper with SSS Lattice background stamp and Hero Arts white powder. I colored tree and background with Zigs: 032 – Persian Blue, 051 Lemon Yellow, 091 Light Gray, 045 Pale Green.
I finished my card off with PTI Holiday Market stamp on the curved banner.
Thank you for stopping by!
I started by heat embossing the tree, the present and the star in white embossing powder on some watercolour cardstock. If you look closely, I stamped a couple of stockings as well but messed up and overlapped them. It’s ok, i ended up cutting that side off :).
Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
Hi everyone, quickly popping in to share a fun holiday card.
I stamped the trees and marked triangle with a pencil, I used 4 shades of green to color the triangles, I didn’t do any blending. It’s been a while since I used copics and so happy that they didn’t bleed on the project. After coloring I cut them out and traced the lines with gold pen.
With Brush Strokes I wanted to create a snowy wind effect, I use light blue and stamped in circular motion.
The mini triangles were inspired by Maria.
I hope you like it, have a wonderful day!
Hello, Anna is here today with two my cards I made using the same supplies and being inspired by cards of Maile Bells. Both cards have the similar design, here I used: Brush Strokes and Duo Talk stamp sets, Stitched Nested Creative Rectangles Creative Dies, and also next sequins for decorating one of the cards – Radiant Pineapple, Shimmer & Clear Sequins Fusion, Sparkly Bubblegum, Enchanted Sea.
For the first card I white embossed the sentiment on Stitched Nested Creative Rectangles die cut and then stamped the watercolor brushstrokes from Brush Strokes stamp set above the sentiment. I picked the yellow / peach / pink / light blue palette for my cards and then I chose the matching sequins for adding the details. The ready panel is adhered to the card base with the foam tape.
For the second card I stamped the watercolor brushstrokes directly on the card base using the same ink colors as for the first card. I stamped the sentiment from Duo Talk stamp set on the front panel and also adhered it to the ready background.
Two clean and simple, but very bright cards are ready!
Have a nice day.
Erica on the brand spanking new blog today, who else is excited about all this new-ness?
Today I have a very untraditional Christmas card for you. It’s all pink, pink, pink! Hot pink even. I’ve been in an ink blending mood recently and that’s how I made the background. I used Pickled Raspberry distress ink and just went to town with it. To frame the sentiment and the stamp I was going to use, I made it extra dark around the edges. Then I splattered water on the panel to create the dotted effect I so adore.
On copic friendly paper I stamped up the flamingo from the Pink Winter and to make it a little more festive, I also added a few little fun bits like reindeer antlers, a santa hat and christmas lights all wrapped around the body of the flamingo. Then I coloured him in using my Copics. Once I was happy with the colouring, I fussy cut the image out and set it aside.
Using the sentiment from the same stamp set, I stamped up ‘Pink Winter’ in VersaMark ink and sprinkled Puff Powder from WOW embossing powder before heating it up with my heat gun for that lovely snowy effect. I simply had to use the Snowflakes embellishments as well as some enamel accents in white to crate a snowfall around the sentiment and the flamingo. I also had to add some enamel accents under the flamingo because if it’s snowing, there should be some snow on the ground too, right? I popped another few snowflakes on top of a few random dots too just for extra pizzazz.
Once all the glue and enamel accents were dry, I adhered the finished panel to a card base and that was pretty much it! Ok, so it took a bit longer than it took you reading this post but you know, it’s not far off. By making several backgrounds in one go, you can save yourself a lot of time if you need to make more than one card.
Here is the full card and I hope I have inspired you to make some nontraditional Christmas cards this year!
That’s it from me for this time,
Happy crafting from Erica
