Studio Katia September 2018 Release Blog Hop

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Studio Katia September 2018 Release Blog Hop!



You should have come here from fabulous Rubeena. Your next stop is wonderful Kaja.

For this Blog Hop I created a card and a tag using New A Cup of Thanks Stamp
Set and Dotted Patterns Set 3 Creative Dies.

I coloured image on both my card and the tag with Polychromos pencils.
I wanted to make them fun and cheerful, so I decided to go for a yellow background.


I used coordinating die to create a mask. I used Mustard Seed distress ink to ink blend background on the tag. For the card I wanted a little different look, so I only used Mustard Seed on bottom portion of my card, using a strip of masking paper to create a sharp straight line. For the top part I decided to use Lemon Zing ink by SimonSaysStamp and brayering technique. Now, there is not a huge result here, as I wasn’t going for a bold background but rather cheerful, so I only went over my panel few times to have that slight gradient of yellow from darker (not dark, just slightly darker ;)) to light. 


I don’t know about you, I usually think of a sentiment in the very last moment. Well not this time. Before I started brayering my background, I die cut word thanks (which is a part of coordinating die set and I love that Katia ads sentiment dies to coordinating sets) out of the masking paper and adhered at the the top right corner of my card panel. After my background was done and I lifted the mask, I got a white word thanks on the yellow background. I love how it looks! I didn’t want the sentiment to steel attention from my gorgeous teacup with flowers and I think this did the trick. 


I coloured flowers on the tag and card differently on purpose. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a set. Hope you like what I made for your inspiration and it will help you decide what nee SK products you need in your stash. ;)

December Release Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!
I am so excited about today! It's a day of a new release Blog Hop at Studio Katia! What a great reason to celebrate with a hop!
The release is beautiful. If you love flowers or cute images or beautiful dies - this release is for you!
You should've come here from Olesya's Blog. Your next stop is Marina's Blog.

To celebrate our December Release, Studio Katia is giving away $50 gift certificate to two lucky winners! If you haven't checked Studio Katia Blog yet, make sure to head there too for all the details on prizes you can win. 

For this hop I made a simple one layer card.
I had a baby girl recently. She is not even a month old yet (few more days ;)) And when you have a newborn and three other kids someone may think crafts will be out of reach for a while. Well, not for me.

With gorgeous stamps like Studio Katia's you can make a quick and beautiful card anytime!


All I used here is fabulous Floral Trimmings Stamps Set, which I heat embossed with white powder on kraft paper, white pencil and embellishments from Studio Katia.


I did need a few minutes to stamp and heat emboss the image. Colouring is simple and easy enough to do it with one hand while holding a baby. And white on kraft always looks pretty and elegant, doesn't it?


Do not let anything stop you from crafting when you feel like it! ;)
Even a little bit of crafty time gives so much!


You can win a $20 GC to Studio Katia Store on my blog!! I will announce a winner on December 27th.
*Comments must be left before 11:59 PM EST on Friday December 22nd and winners will be announced on December 24th, 2017. 

Happy Hopping!

Studio Katia and Chibitronics Collaboration

Hello, Everyone!
Life takes crazy turns sometimes and so I am a bit late to post my card for great collaboration that was happening in the last few days. Studio Katia teamed up with Chibitronics for three days of fun and inspiration.


I had a little car accident two weeks ago which caused some whiplash symptoms. Hopefully they won't last too long. I would appreciate your positive thoughts sent my way. :)
For my card I picked Kobi the Birthday Bear stamp set. Since my son likes green colour most it was easy to pick the colour theme. I stamped a little scene using masks and coloured it with Polychromos pencils.


Next was the tricky part - make a circuit that would connect battery to the lights, so when you press on the gift behind the bear, candle light and bear's hat light up. I wanted it to be more fun, so I added a light on the hat too.


I like stamping small images on the card base, so it adds some fun look and detail.


SUPPLIES:
Kobi the Birthday Bear | Bundle
Kobi the Birthday Bear | Clear Stamp Set
Dotted Ovals | Creative Dies



Check out Studio Katia Blog tonight to find out who's the winner of this collaboration and see all wonderful cards by the DT Ladies!
Have a wonderful week!

For this hop I made a There's no place like home card.
When you look at my card think of summer time, when kids are off school and spending more time home, bouncing of walls LOL, playing in the backyard, enjoying the sunshine.


I just had to use my favourite way of making shaker fillers - stamping and cutting some tiny images, so these birds got some cute kiddos. ))
I also added some tiny hearts and yellow flowers to make background look more interesting.
