Studio Katia New Release Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to be part of Studio Katia New Release Blog Hop! It is such a fun and beautiful release at the same time.

I made lots of different cards with it. You can see all of them in the Full Release Reveal video. I want to share with you few of my favourites.

Colouring these hibiscus flowers is so much fun! I used one Square Brick stencils and oxide inks to create a background for this card. Images are coloured with Altenew artist markers and I added a heat embossed sentiment on a vellum.

And I just had to share with you this card. Aren't these sharks adorable? We still have snow here in Ottawa, but I am already in a summer mood thanks to the stamps from this release. And how cute are the starfish on the tag? I like that this stamp set let you personalize them to your own taste.

One Stamp Three Ways

Hello Everyone!
Is it too early for Easter preparations? I figured since there is Christmas in July I am most likely too late with my Easter cards. Although I am hoping that I am right on time. ;)

I am sharing these three cards on Studio Katia Blog today. I decided to feature beautiful Floral Cross stamp Katia released last year. Making Easter cards with it is so easy and fun!

Interational Tea Day Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to National Tea Day Blog Hop!

For this Blog Hop I made a watercolour card using beautiful A Cup of Thanks Stamp Set.

I coloured flowers in a tea cup using Marvy Uchida watercolour pencils. I really like the soft colours I achieved with them.

I die cut the image, did a simple wash on another watercolour paper and foam mounted the image onto a panel.

Lastly I stamped cute sentiment from Studio Katia Sweet Latte set in dark grey ink.

Happy hopping!

WOW and Studio Katia Collaboration Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to WOW! Embossing Powder and Studio Katia Collaboration Blog Hop!

For the Blog Hop I made a Card and a Tag set. I like making these sets lately. I had lots of fun with Studio Katia stamps and WOW! embossing powders. I decided to make a little winter scene. I used masks here and a diy stencil to make hills. These are very simple, as I wanted the card fit in an envelope and be easy to ship. Since I did a lot of heat embossing, I decided not to do anything time consuming for the houses and did a very simple pencil colouring. I also put some cleat glaze onto windows and heat set it, which made the windows look, as if they have some frost patterns on them.
I filled top part of my card with snowflakes and top of the tag with stars. I like how fun these turned out. :)

Supplies used:

WOW! Embossing powders - Rose Gold, Unicorn Magic, Bright White

You can win TWO $25 CAD Gift Certificatesto Studio Katia Store and 6 WOW! Embossing Powder powders of your choice along with a WOW carry caseto store you powders safely in.

Monster Card and Tag

Hello Everyone! I have a Monster Birthday Card and Tag set to share with you today. I combined two Studio Katia stamps sets - Whimsical Town and Monster Bash - to create a fun scene.

As I was stamping images and deciding what mediums I will use to colour my images, I thought I'd make a quick and simple card. Well... things didn't go as planned. I ended up making a card in one of my most favourite techniques - masking! Oh yes, I'm quite crazy about masking. That's why instead of creating a quick and simple card I have a fun scene. And not a day scene, but night scene as well, as I also got a little carried away with the inks. My crafty friends call my Miss Intense for a reason. haha

And I have to admit I do like this set a lot, especially all the sparkles... But let me tell you how I made  the card before I tell you about all the finishing touches.

First I stamped three monsters on a panel I die cut with a die from Dotted Patterns Set 3. This set my latest favourite and I don't even put these dies away I use them so often. After stamping the monsters I covered them with masks and started stamping buildings. I covered all stamped images with masks (I did get carried away lol) and started working on the background. I used distress inks in blue and purple shades to make this intense night sky. To brighten it up a little I added some splashes with white and golden shimmer pens. And once I did that I knew right away what else did my scene need after I coloured all the images with alcohol markers. A lot of sparkle! I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on couple roofs, monsters' eyes and one of the monster's head. I used Nuvo Glitter Drops to cover a star-shaped sentiment and couple roofs. I also used a clear glitter pen to highlight some small details on whimsical buildings.

Once everything was dry, I foam mounted the sentiment and three monsters. And since I coloured more monsters than I needed, I decided to add one inside of the card.

I couldn't resist making a matching tag. Usually I make two cards that look similar, and are different at the same time. Lately I am into making matching tags. I just can't get enough of that cute tag from Dotted Patterns Set 3. You will definitely be seeing more of card and tag sets from me in the near future. ;) I just love how this little guy turned out!

Hope you were inspired by my projects today! Have a great weekend!

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!
