Grapeful for Your Friendship Card | Studio Katia

Hello Sweet Friends, I am up on the Studio Katia Blog today!

I have been dying to play around with this gorgeous Citrus Trimmings stamp set for the longest time and today I finally get to share my results. As you may know already if you have been following my work, I love all things rainbow so I thought I would use that as my color inspiration for this slimline citrus card. Gahhh, isn't it so pretty and yummy looking!?! Summer can't get here soon enough!

CARD DETAILS

To start, I began by cutting a watercolor piece of paper 9 X 5 inches. I then stamped out one of the Citrus Trimmings stamps along the bottom of the panel using watermark ink and then heat set it with gold embossing powder. I then took the other citrus stamp and slightly overlapped the image with the previous one and stamped it out again with the watermark ink and sprinkled on the gold embossing powder. This time before I heat set the powder I took a small paintbrush and brushed off any of the overlapped embossing powder that transferred on to the previously stamped image. This just avoided masking the first image.

Next, I used Mijello Mission Gold watercolors to paint in all the images in. Since they were heat embossed it made adding water in the wells super easy to color in as it prevented color bleeding to occur. I began with the purply pink color on the left which I like to think looks like a blood orange fruit and then ended the watercolored citrus edge with the limes. As you can see I added quite a few layers of color to the images to add dimension and texture to the fruit. To do that I simply allowed each layer of color to dry before adding more color.

Once the images were all colored in and dry, I added some splatters of color using the same colors I painted with. I then trimmed the card panel to fit on to an 8.5 x 4-inch slimline card.  

On a piece of black cardstock, I stamped out the sentiment in white pigment ink and heat set it with white embossing powder. I then used the small frame die from the Dotted Patterns Set 2 to die cut the sentiment. Since I wanted the sentiment strip to cut smaller than the die itself I lined it up with the top of the sentiment first and then die cut it again lining it up with the bottom ensuring that the dots all lined up before running it through the die cutting machine again. This is a great way to stretch out your dies and add that extra dotted detail around sentiment strips.

I then finished off the card by gluing on Dazzling Celery, Radiant Pinaple, and Summer Fusion sequins to the card front.

Honey Bee Stamps Brie Mine Blog Hop | Day 2


Hello Friends and welcome to Day 2 of the Honey Bee Stamps Brie Mine Blog Hop. If you have arrived from the uber talented Carly's Blog you are on the right track. I'll fill you in on where to go next at the end of this post. Today I have a couple of cards from the latest Brie Mine Release to share with you so let's get started.

CARD DETAILS

I began creating this card by picking out the patterned paper for the cupcake liners. Then using the Cupcake Builder, I die cut an assortment of different flavors using colored card stock. I then wanted to add some fruit toppings to the top of each of them so I stamped out a few cherries and strawberries from Mae the Mouse set, colored them in with Copic markers and then die cut them with their coordinating dies. Next, I pieced and glued each cupcake together and set them aside to work on the card base.

I wanted this card scene to look like the cupcakes were outside on a picnic table. So I began by cutting a strip of yellow paper about 1.5 inches by the width of the card which measures 8.5 inches. I then stamped the gingham pattern across the paper using a watermark ink and brushed over the top with perfect pearls to add a hint shine to the design. Once that was done I added the scalloped edge to the bottom of the "tablecloth" using the Background Builder Scallop Die

To the sky, I blended out Broken China Distress Oxide Ink just along the top edge of the card leaving white space in the center of the panel.

The sentiments I used come from the Piece of Cupcake and the Friendship stamp sets. I then just used the coordinating Friendship Dies to die cut the word Friend. The hearts die cuts also come from the from the Friendship Die set.

To finish and embellish the card, I added glossy accents, Stickles glitter glue, foam sprinkles, clay white and pink hearts and Unicorn Rhinestones.

On the inside, I stamped a few of the sentiments from the Friendship set.

For my second card, I began with blending Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol Paper. Once the ink was dry I stamped out the sentiment from the Friendship Stamp set in the center and heat embossed the letters in silver.

Next, I die cut the panel using the Deckle Edge Frame and then also die cut a few of the Stacking Stars around the card to frame the sentiment. I then filled any empty spaces with stamped stars, Rhinestones and a spray of white splatter drops.

I then popped the panel using foam tape on to another piece of cardstock that I had added Glimmer Paste to just underneath where each star would be peaking through and then glued that to a back A2 landscape card base.
