Studio Katia Winter 2019 Release Blog Hop

Hello Everyone! I am so excited to be part of Studio Katia Blog Hop today! We are celebrating Winter 2019 Release with a Blog Hop. This release includes 6 New Clear Stamp Sets and 4 Sets of Coordinating Dies, 4 New Stand Alone Creative Dies, 3 New Stencils and 2 New Glitter Jars! You can see this fantastic release here. I love all the new products!!

You should have arrived from Emily Midgett's Blog and your next stop is Dana Gong.

I made a winter scene card today featuring adorable snowmen from Happy Snowmen Stamp Set. I went a little crazy with masking technique here. lol I had to mask the hats and all the snowmen as well, since I wanted to add golden accents in the background. All the images had to be masked in order for me to heat emboss those golden Christmas trees behind the snowmen. I used WOW! Metallic Gold embossing powder for that. 

After I stamped the scene and embossed the trees, I die cut out a panel using a die from Dotted Patterns Set 3. While I had all the masks on, I ink blended few shades of blue ink going light to dark to make a night sky. I also added some stars with golden glitter paste using Snow-fetti stencil and made a starry night by adding lots of dots with golden gel pen. I know the stencil is called Snow-fetti, but to me those snowflakes totally look like stars if you make them with golden glitter paste. 

I coloured all the snowmen with Altenew Artist Markers and added some sparkle using clear Wink of Stella. It's hard to show all that shine on pictures, but hopefully you can see some of it on the picture below.

To complete my scene I die cut out another panel out of white and glitter gold cardstock using the same frame die and cut out two pieces from those panels using border die from Trimmings Borders. I ink blended the edges of the white strip, so it wouldn't be just plain white. Next, I glued the white and golden pieces together to add a golden edge to my bottom piece. I really like how that golden stripe ties everything together.

I stamped the sentiment and foam mounted it onto the panel with my winter scene. For even more fun, I added pompoms on the hats of two snowmen. Adhered the panel onto a plain white card base and my card is done!

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!
