Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY - Under the Sea Cards



Hello, and welcome to Studio Katia's 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop! For those of you that are new here, I'm Ilda πŸ‘‹ and am super excited to finally announce that I have joined the Studio Katia Design Team! If you've already started on the hop, you have arrived from the lovely Emily's blog, and if you are just getting started you can find the next stop at the end of this post.

For my cards today, I stuck to the Under the Sea theme πŸŸπŸ πŸšπŸŒŠ
If you have been following me on Instagram you may have seen a preview of this first card already, if you are not following me yet on Instagram make sure you do, as I will be doing a GIVEAWAY on Instagram too! 

So let's get onto this is the tropical little aquarium shaker I created. I began by making the background using distress oxide inks and then used some micro glaze over top to intensify the colors. Next, I stamped out the images I wanted to use for this card and colored them in with the very vibrant Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers. I then die cut all the images out and also die cut what would become the aquarium using the frame from Dotted Pattern Loops Die

To assemble the card, attached acetate to the back of the frame, to which I then added a thin strip of doubled foam tape along the edge. Next, I placed and glued down the images I wanted to use on the inside of the shaker card. I also attached a very thin plastic thread to the back of the two larger fish and the Blowfish and secured the ends onto the back of the panel. This will allow those pieces to move up and down when shaking the card.  I then added a mix of March, April and May crystals as my shaker bits and added glued down some iridescent bubbles. For the sentiment, I used the Birthday Fishes stamp on the banner from the dotted patters - set 2 dies.

Here's a close look at this fun card.

For this next birthday card, I used the cute little turtle from the Shell-ebration stamp set, colored it with Spectrum Noir Markers and die cut it using the coordinating dies.

For the background, again I used distress oxide inks, only this time I used them for blending out the distress oxide inks with the new Brush Stroke Waves Stencil. I then used the Scallop Window die to create a tunnel shaker window. To embellish the shell I added some lines of chunky glitter to it.

Here is a look at the card once it's opened up. I added a mix of large chunky glitter and Spring Gems.
For the sentiment, I used the positive piece from front background panel and adhered it right below where the window opening would be. I then stamped out the Happy Birthday from the birthday greetings set. Added a little iridescent bubble to the top to reveal a little pearl when the window is open from the top.

For my final card, I used the Mermaid for Each Other Stamp set and did a no line water coloring using Zig clean Color brush pens. Once the images were colored I re-stamped their mermaid tails with a watermark ink and embossed only their tails in gold. I also used the gold embossing powder on all their mermaid accessories.

Behind the mermaids, I used the Seashell die and cut the inner shell shape using a gold foiled cardstock and added a large April crystal between and some gold crystals above them. 
For the background, I used alcohol inks on yupo paper and burnished some of the areas with gold foil. Then I die cut the panel using the frame from the Dotted Patterns: Loops, popping up the center panel with foam tape.

To the inside of the card, I used the outer shell piece and added the "love" diecut from the Spring Bouquet set and stamped out "you".
