Studio Katia Paws for Kindness Blog Hop

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Studio Katia Paws for Kindness Blog Hop!

We are celebrating a very special cause today. Studio Katia is releasing an exclusive stamp set and coordinating die bundle called Love for Paws Bundle. It features images designed specifically to celebrate the World Kindness Day. 

Studio Katia will donate $10 from every sale of this special stamp bundle to Pets in the Classroom, because we truly believe that all children should have the opportunity to learn about the responsibilities, respect for life and being kind to one another.  

You should have arrived here from Olga Moss' Blog and this is your last stop on the Hop. Head over to the Studio Katia Blog and tell us if you enjoyed hopping along.

To make the background on my cards I combined BIRTHDAY BALLOONS DUO and NEW Mini Paws Stencil. I ink blended the balloons through one of the stencils first, using Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Oxide Inks and Studio Katia INK BLENDER BRUSHES. Next, I took the 2nd stencil from the Duo and ink blended with Blueprint Sketch Oxide Ink. I carefully wiped the stencil and while I still had it on, I placed Mini Paws Stencil on top and added some Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. This way I only got the pattern on those darkest balloons. Once the panel was dry I die cut it out with a frame die from  DOTTED PATTERNS SET 1
I stamped and coloured the boy image from Love for Paws Bundle with Altenew Artist markers. Next, I die cut out a hexagon using one of the dies from ELONGATED HEXAGONS die set and ink blended the edges, as it was too clean and too white. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set - sending hugs your way - with brown ink, as I wanted a softer look. I foam mounted the hexagon panel to the side of my background panel and cut off the excess. I die cut out the image with coordinating die and adhered it onto the sentiment panel, so that the leftover hexagon part wouldn't be visible. Next, I mounted everything onto a white card base with a strong double sided tape.  

I made background panel for the girl card the same way. I combined BIRTHDAY BALLOONS DUO and NEW Love for Paws Stencil and used Wilted Violet, Milled Lavender, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Oxide Inks and Studio Katia INK BLENDER BRUSHES and blended colours onto the balloons in a way that they would overlap each other. Next, I added the same Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste onto darkest balloons. Once it was dry, I die cut out a panel using largest die from DOTTED PATTERNS SET 3. I like the rounded corners it makes. 
I coloured the girl image from Love for Paws Bundle with Altenew Artist markers and die cut it out with coordinating die. Next, I die cut out an oval using a die from NESTED OVALS die set. I ink blended the edges with some Worn Pistick Oxide Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the set - be silly. be yourself. be kind. - and foam mounted it onto the background panel a little bit to side. I cut off the excess and adhered die cut image above the sentiment. I mounted my panel onto a white card base using strong double sided tape.
I had lots of fun playing with the new stamp set and stencils!
