Hi there crafty friends! Jacquie here from The Big Reveal. I am so pleased to be this month’s Guest Designer for Studio Katia. I pretty much fell in love with Studio Katia with their first release! I love all their unique creative dies, the flowers, and of course, adorable Kobi!
I have made 5 cards for todays post, so sit back and maybe grab a cuppa something warm and enjoy!
My first card uses the beautiful Blooming Bunch stamp set and the awesome Dotted patterns: Scallop frames creative die set! I stamped the floral bouquet on watercolor paper and white heat embossed it. I used watercolor paints to color it. I then used the creative dies on the panel. I cut it out twice and raised the frame to give it more dimension. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum and then adhered the bow to it, and stuck it to my card. I finished it off with some gorgeous crystals from the Cupids Kiss Crystal Mix.
My second card is a fun Valentine’s themed card using the super adorable Kobi’s Hugs and Kisses stamp set. I stamped the images on smooth white cardstock and colored with Copic markers and cut them out. I used the Dotted patterns: Loops creative dies on a piece of warm gray cardstock. I punched out all the circles, but then put a few back in for added interest. I gently blended some soft pink ink on the white card panel. I mounted the die cut piece over the card panel and adhered my Kobi bear to the front. I stamped HUGS in the center of the heart. I finished off again using crystals from the Cupids Kiss Crystal mix.
This third project is possibly my favorite! I stamped the lovely florals along the left edge and bottom of an A2 sized card panel, and then I stamped a few extra on another piece of cardstock. I colored these using Copics, but as you can see, I did a different type of coloring…just some lines highlighting, I didn’t color and blend the whole flower. I wanted it to have a unique look to it. I blended a bit of pale pink ink along the edges here and there. I took the Stitched creative windows die and placed it over my colored piece, and cut it out. I lined up the cut out pieces below, and mounted it using foam tape, making a shaker card. I filled the shaker with the Majestic confetti. I cut out the extra flowers I stamped, as well as the greeting and mounted them on the top of the shaker.
This 4th card uses the gorgeous and unique Floral trimmings set! I love to color with Copics so I stamped this several times and colored them all a bit differently. For this card, I cut out the floral image and set it aside. I then stamped the same image along the bottom of a folded note card in a pale ink. I mounted my colored and cut piece on the note card. I stamped the greeting and added some pretty sparkly sequins from the Crystal clear sequin fusion pack. I love how they picked up the purples and blues!
My final project features a die set that I was so excited to get! I cut out some thick watercolor paper using the Dotted Patterns: Fancy Square die. Then I cut another watercolor panel down and smooshed it in some watercolor paint and set aside to dry. I used the Floral Trimmings Copic colored piece I had left from the last card to fashion a little border along the inside of the frame. I stamped a greeting from Blooming bunch on the watercolored panel and adhered the frame using foam tape. I had originally thought I would make a shaker card, but decided to keep it simple and just adhere a few Iridescent Crystals to the card to finish it off.
That is all for my projects today! Thank you so much to Studio Katia for inviting me to be their guest designer! I really love their projects and have begun collecting them all! (haha!) Have a great day!
