Paws for Kindness Blog Hop + Giveaway | Best Fur Friend Cards | Studio Katia


Paws for Kindness Blog Hop + Giveaway | Best Fur Friend Cards | Studio Katia by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Happy World Kindness Day friends! To celebrate this day, Studio Katia has a special Blog prepared featuring an exclusive LOVE FOR PAWS stamp set and coordinating die bundle specifically designed to celebrate 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.

If you have already started the Hop you would have arrived from the Studio Katia Blog. If you are just getting started I will have the complete list at the end of this post.

CARD DETAILS

For both my cards today I started off by creating the backgrounds using the Stencils. For this first girly one, I began by blending Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink (OI) using Studio Katia INK BLENDER BRUSHES  and then adding a deeper red to the single hearts on the panel using Barn Door OI.

Next, I die cut the panel using both the DARLING RIBBON AND FRAMES DIES to cut out the frame and then the SHAKER HEART die to cut out the window for the shaker. I then glued a piece of ACETATE to the back of the panel.

On a scrap piece of red cardstock, I stamped the Best Friends sentiment. I then added some MAJESTIC FUSION sequins to the center of the stamped greeting area and then closed up the shaker and attached it to an A2 card base. I finished the front by adding the cutest image from LOVE FOR PAWS stamp that I had die cut with the coordinating dies. The images were colored using Copic markers.

This next card, my boy version, was done using the exact same process as the previous card only this time created a horizontal card, I used Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Faded Jeans Distress OI and used the MINI PAWS STENCIL.

Again this cute little guy was stamped out from the LOVE FOR PAWS stamp and then die cut with the coordinating dies and colored using Copic Markers. The sentiments inside the shaker heart also come from the same set.

This time I filled the shaker area using, a mix of SPARKLING SEA CONFETTI MIXLIGHT BLUE STARSCRYSTAL STARS.

Water Coloring Christmas Outfit Critters with Shimmer Powders | Tonic Studio

Water Coloring Christmas Outfit Critters with Shimmer Powders | Tonic Studio by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com
Happy Remembrance Day Friends and I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I am super excited to be also posting on the Tonic Studio Blog today!

So are you all getting into the Holiday Spirit yet? I am itching to get my Christmas Decor up as we had our first snowfall here in Edmonton (Alberta, Canada) and it is starting to look a lot like Christmas. Well even if my house isn't decorated yet, my crafty area definitely feels like Christmas as all I see these days are Christmas Cards in the making, like this super cute one I am sharing with you all today.

  CARD DETAILS

For my card today I decided to play with the CELEBRATE LIFE stamps US | UK and paired them with the FREE digital download stamps CHRISTMAS OUTFITS to dress up these cute critters for the Holidays. (Download yours now to dress up any of your Garden Party Critters US | UK)

To begin, I printed off the CHRISTMAS OUTFITS first onto Bristol paper, I then stamped the Critters and present images I wanted to use onto the empty spaces of the printed sheet.

Next, I added a very small amount of Shimmer Powder (colors used listed at the end of the post) to the wells of a paint palette. I then added a few drops of water and mixed up the powder to create a shimmery paint. I then used a water brush to paint in all the images. (I will have links at the end of the post of all the supplies today.) Once the images were colored in I used the ScanNCut to die cut the images out.

To embellish the tree, I thought it would be fun to add some dimension using Nuvo Drops (see links at the end of the post).

Here are a few close-up photos of these shimmery Christmas cuties! To a few of the Critter images, I cut off the arms to dress them in sweaters like the little bear below.

This slimline finished card measures 8 1/2 inches long by 4 inches wide. To add some shine to their noses, cheeks, eyes, etc. I added drops of glossy accents.

Here is what the card looks like when the sunlight hits it. I love how the Shimmer Powders are so amazing and versatile to use. Aren't these colors so pretty with all the sparkles?!

Have you tried coloring with the Tonic Shimmer powders yet? It feels like coloring with metallic watercolors, the finish is so sparkly! I hope you will give this a try I had so much fun water coloring with them.

I hope you got some inspiration from this Slimeline Christmas Critter Card done using Shimmer Powders. Thanks so much for stopping by today and I wish you all a wonderful week! 

Until next time... Happy Crafting ๐Ÿ‘‹
