It’s Dana here and I’m so excited to share my first project with you on the Studio Katia blog. Today, I have a summer birthday card featuring Studio Katia Kobi Bearing Gifts Stamp Set. I’ll share some ideas to extend this adorable Kobi stamp for other season as well. Here is what I came up with.
I think the most easiest way to extend your critter stamp is transforming the part of it. For this summer Kobi, I drew his swimming trunks on his body and a surfing board around him. If it were winter, I would create skis and snowy hillside or skate boots and icy background or just Santa Kobi!
After drawing the images on a piece of watercolor paper, I colored it with Zig Cleancolor Real Brush Markers using waterbrush. I fussy cut it with scissors and added details using white gel pen and Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
For background, I pulled out watercolor paper and ran it through my die cutting machine with Studio Katia Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames. I then sponged Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feather Distress Oxide Inks.
Next, I spritzed clean water to the Studio Katia Brush Stroke Waves Stencil and let it down on my sponged background and pressed it for about 30 seconds. I cleared away the stencil and put a paper towel on the background to get rid of water. I then sprayed white and gold inks as shown in the picture.
Once it dried, I heat embossed sentiments from Studio Katia Birthday Greetings Stamp Set with gold and white embossing powders. I foam mounted surfing bear using foam tape and finished off this card.
Hope you enjoyed this card. I shared another birthday card which I used Studio Katia Kobi Bearing Gifts Stamp Set and Birthday Lions Stamp Set on my blog today as well. (click HERE) Happy crafting!
