Guest Designer Emily Leiphart

Hi, it’s Emily here and I’m absolutely delighted to be guest designing with Studio Katia today! It’s a pleasure to discover new companies and amazing talents, especially Canadian ones. ūüėČ Studio Katia’s latest release is an incredible one and I loved playing with the new stamps, dies and embellishments! My first card is a birthday card featuring Kobi the Birthday Bear¬†stamps and coordinating dies. He’s so adorable and I’m in love with those numbered candles!

 

I used a total of eight images from that set, along with their coordinating dies. I used fun foam to pop up the candles and balloon since it was the easiest way to layer small areas. I stamped all of the images with black pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, then used distress inks to colour everything. I used the Clear Round Drops Mix on the balloons.

My second card features the You’re So Ranunculus¬†stamp set, Mini Thank You¬†dies and Dotted Patterns Set 1 dies. I stamped the flowers with watermark ink and heat embossed with gold tinsel embossing powder. Then I watercoloured the image with distress inks.

After the panel dried, I dry embossed the largest frame using Dotted Patterns Set 1. You can see the details in the close-up photo below.

To create the sentiment, I watercoloured a die cut from Mini Thank You and layered it, first, with black cardstock and fun foam.

Aside from the tans and browns I used for the bear and cake, I used the same bright colours on both cards. The ranunculus card is busier and more saturated with colour and shine, while the birthday card is clear and simple in comparison. I love using the same colours on two very different cards to show versatility.

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects. Please visit my blog for a full supply list. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I’ve always loved Emily’s creations. These cards are so fun and its neat to see her use the same colours in different ways.

These are great cards Emily. I love both of these sets and those candles on Kobi’s birthday cake are just too cute for words!
