Hello friends! It’s Olga and I have a Halloween shaker card to share with you.
To create my Halloween scene, I stamped the cute little cat in a witches’ hat with different elements from the MEOWY HALLOWEEN and die cut them using MEOWY HALLOWEEN DIES. I then colored the images using Copic Markers.
Next, I created the background. I ink blended purple shades for the top panel of the shaker and orange shades for the backdrop of the shaker. To add some shine, I sprinkled all the elements with gold acrylic paint.
The next step was to die cut all the pieces for the shaker card. I first die cut the larger frame from the DOTTED SLIMLINE – SET 2. Next, I die cut the center of the panel using the oval dotted frame from the DOTTED SLIMLINE – SET 1. Behind the slimline panel, I glued a piece of acetate cut large enough to cover the window. To line the perimeter of the oval opening I used DOUBLE SIDED FOAM TAPE – BLACK that I cut to about half of the width.
I then filled the shaker with NEON TANGERINE CRYSTALS, WICKED sequins and GOLD DUST seed beads to the center of the orange panel and carefully lined up the front panel to create the shaker. I adhered previously prepared images on the card.
To finish off this slimline card I die cut a BOO sentiment using CHUNKY ALPHABET dies and then attached it to the card.
I hope this card inspired you today. Thank you for stopping by and until next time.
Hello everyone! It’s Galina. And today I’m going to show you a one layered autumn birthday card. This card design will be perfect for masculine cards also.
How to make this card you can watch here or Studio Katia Youtube channel.
I start by to cut out a several acorns from a white card panel. . I tried place my die on different angels to create an effect of falling acorns from a tree. NExt I aplied a dark blue ink on a panel and brown inks on the acorn parts.
Using detailed stencil called autumn leave stencil I created a background. This stencil is perfect for any seseson card, I have made a lot of summer cards with it, you can check other projects on this blog or on Youtube channel. So, I applying a light blue color of distress oxide ink. It’s a pigment ink so it will be visible on a dark surface. If you don’t have oxise inks you can use a white pigment ink or a darker color of regular ink. Like super deep blue or even a black color. The pattern will look awesome e anyway.
I inlaid the acorn pieces into the car panel. Ididn’t add the outline die cut to create a nice texture on the card. So im placing each die cut back in to the panel. It’s like putting puzzle together. Very satisfying process.
I heat embosset the sentiment with white embossing powder. I used a small stamp from the big set of birthday sentiments.
To embilsh my card I used a few gold drops from Studio Katia.
Thanks for stopping by!

It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I made a floral kindness card!
Take a look:
First, I stamped out the Flourishing note stamp set twice. Usually I would color the floral images with watercolors, but this time I decided to use a new technique – no blend alcohol marker coloring. For each bloom, I used three colors of the same color family and createad an ombre look. I made sure that the colors are different enough that you can see that they aren’t blended together.
Once the images were colored in, I decided that I will only use a floral poriton of the stamped image. This shows, that most of the stamps can be used in many different ways, not just as a whole image!
Then, I die cut a beautiful white frame using the scalloped die from Dotted patterns 4 set. I knew that the floral images will be bold that’s why I picked white for the frame. For the backdrop, I looked for a patterned paper to match the colors and used it behind the frame.
The last thing I added was a sentiment from Kind bouquet stamp set that reads ‘Spread kindness’. The word Kindness also has a coordinating die that die cuts the word beautifully and adds a clean finishing detail.
In the end, I glued everything together using Studio Katia glue and tape.
Thank you so much for joining me!
Happy Monday, Studio Katia friends!
It’s Dana here and I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today, I’m sharing a Halloween shaker card and let’s get started!
To begin, I die cut three circles from white card stock for card base and stamping and one circle from black card stock for window. I die cut one more from Acetate Sheets as well. For this step, I used big circle die from Halftone Dots Circle Dies.
Next, I stamped Spooky Pumpkins Trimmings in black and colored images in with Alcohol markers. I cut this trimmings using scissors and glued it on right back of acetate panel.
For background, I ink blended it using Distress Oxide Inks and stamped small spider webs from Meowy Halloween.
I mixed Storm Cloud Pearls, Mallow Crystals and Royal Purple Crystals and built a shaker using Double Sided Foam Tape (Black). Then, I mounted a shaker onto card base I made in previous step.
To finish, I stamped a sentiment from Meowy Halloween in silver and trimmed it using craft knife.
That’s it for today! Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

Hello everyone! Isha here with you today with a CAS card using stencil.
I started by creating the background. I sponged some spun sugar, worn lipstick, picked raspberry and wilted violet distress oxide inks to the white cardstock using the blender brushes. I then took the Autumn Leaves stencil and put it on the inked piece. I then applied versamark ink through the stencil. Remove the stencil and dab some perfect pearls to the piece. Die-cut the heart, adhere the positive to the white cardbase, adhere vellum on top. Now adhere the negative part of the layer to the cardbase. Stamp sentiment from the It’s your Birthday stamp set onto vellum using StazOn black ink. Die-cut the word YOU from the Chunky Alphabet die four times from white cardstock. Stack them, apply some clear sparkle on it and add glossy accent. Let dry.
Adhere the word to the heart center. To finish, add some Icy Sparkle Crystals. Thank you for dropping by! Have a nice day and stay safe!
Hey lovelies, Tracy here with you for part 2 of my quick and easy mini series. You can find part 1 here.
For todays card we are making a shaker card ! Now anyone that knows me knows I avoided shaker cards because i was awful at them. But this is what I have learnt.
- Keep them simple until you are comfortable
- Use GOOD foam tape
- Don’t overthink them and compare yours to others.
I would always look at others shaker cards and try and go for something fancy and would fail….the good thing with shaker cards is you do not need to go fancy as the card below shows.
I used the Shaker Balloon Die set which makes it so much easier, I started off die cutting a piece of the new Rainbow paper pad using the Dotted Patterns set 1 along with the shaker balloon die. I used the same die and cut out some black card.
I laid the main piece over some black card and used it as a guide to adhere the balloon and black outline.
To create the shaker I adhered some strong acetate to the back of the main piece and I adhered foam tape to the BASE, this is something I found allows lining everything up so much easier. I then added some Silver Fever Sequins and carefully lined the main piece up and adhered it. I then heat embossed a sentiment from the Birthday Greetings stamp set. To finish off I added the diecut bow along with some silver sparkle over the top.
If you are going for a more simple shaker like this my advice is too use a nice patterned paper and also some nice coloured sequins as they add that little bit extra something.
Doing this kind of shaker card really helped get my confidence back with shaker cards plus they are super quick.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you like the tips I shared.
Have an amazing day and happy crafting
Hi there, it’s Tracey back again today with a sporty themed slimline birthday card using the new Sports-Balls Trimmings stamp set.
Like the other stamps in the Trimmings series, there is two almost identical stamps in the set. One that the orientation would typically work best with the stamp on the bottom of your scene and the other at the top. Design team member Emily Leiphart made a card a couple weeks ago using the stamp best suited for the bottom. Today I chose to use the stamp best for the top. There are some different sports equipment in both stamps.
I stamped the image using Copic friendly ink and coloured the image with Copic Markers. I’ll admit it took some time sorting out the colours for each of the images but it was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
Once the colouring was done I used the coordinating Sports-Balls Trammings dies to cut the image out. The die only cuts 3 sides of the image and leaves the bottom attached. On my card today I placed the die cut in the centre of the card so I did a bit a fussy cutting to free the die cut from the paper.
The card base for my slimline card was cut from navy cardstock to 7″ x 8 1/2″ and scored in the centre of the length at 3 1/2″ to create a 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and it was white embossed on to the front of the card.
I used the shaped rectangle from the Dotted Slimline Set 2 dies to create a focal panel for the coloured image. I love using my stencil with the Studio Katia Blending Brushes. I stenciled Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink using the Studio Katia Grid Stencil to add a bit of detail. I attached the panel direct to the card base just above Happy Birthday.
Next I attached the coloured Sports-Balls image with Studio Katia foam tape. The grid stenciling underneath pops more with the added dimension. I finished the card off with Studio Katia Sparkling Sea Confetti. A great design for a sports buff, child or teenager. You can choose the top or bottom stamp depending which sports equipment you would like on your card.
Thanks so much for stopping in today!
