There Is No Place Like Home | Whimsical Town Scene Card | Studio Katia


There Is No Place Like Home | Whimsical Town Scene Card | Studio Katia

Hello, my friends. I hope you are all staying safe and healthy at home during this time.

Today's card was sadly inspired by the Pandemic, right now there is definitely no place like home! At the time that this was colored, (Day 15 of Kathy Racoocin's Daily Marker Coloring Challenge) Italy was and still is going through difficult times. I have never been to Italy but I imagine it has some beautiful coastal places like this, maybe even whimsical too.

CARD DETAILS

To begin I stamped out all of the WHIMSICAL TOWN stamps that I wanted to use and colored them in using Copic Markers. I chose the bright colors of the rainbow and then mixed them up to color all the buildings. I think the colorful images just add to the whimsy of the card.

Once all the elements were colored I then used the coordinating WHIMSICAL TOWN DIES to cut the pieces out.

Next, I used the BRUSH STROKE WAVES STENCIL to blend out the ocean for the background. I then trimmed the piece and glued it to the card front and began building the scene from there.

To create the illusion of the water in the background I popped up the houses starting with the houses closest to the ocean. I then used the SIMPLE BORDERS DIES to create the grass and to cover up the bottom edges of the buildings. The middle hill was just the opposite cut of the die that I glued in place and added some trees and bushes to.

For the front row of houses, I added an extra layer of foam only to the top parts of the buildings to continue to the illusion of depth.

To finish off the card I stamped out the sentiment from the WHIMSICAL TOWN stamps onto the bottom grass piece and popped it onto place.

I hope this card has inspired you today. I love how it turned out and hope you do too.

Stay safe my friends, stay home. I still have to go to work but I am thankful for cardmaking these days as it keeps me busy and distracted from the craziness outside.

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting πŸ‘‹

Bloom, You Are Beautiful Friendship Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Bloom, You Are Beautiful Friendship Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello friends, I hope you all are well and coping with the isolation situation during these uncertain times. Thankfully we have blogs, social media, and many other ways to stay in contact with each other. Imagine this happened in the '70s or the '80s when the internet was a baby and all we had was rotary phones and tube TV? Now that would have been a nightmare, LOL!!!

Anyways, today I have a super simple Spring-inspired friendship card. If you have been following me on Instagram you may have noticed I colored this TATTOO ROSE for day 21 of Kathy Raccosins Daily Marker Coloring Challenge.

CARD DETAILS

To begin, I had first stamped the TATTOO ROSE image onto kraft cardstock and colored it in using Prismacolor pencils. I then die cut it using the coordinating dies.

I then added glimmer paste to a piece of kraft cardstock using the POLKA DOT BACKGROUND STENCILS.

Next, I die cut the BLOOM HONEY CUTS using a different color of cardstock for each layer to coordinate with the colors of the rose. To the top layer of the bloom word die (pink) I stacked a few layers together to give it more dimension.

To finish off the simple card I stamped the sentiment from the BLOOM set and used the SENTIMENT BANNER DIES to die cut the sentiment out.

Once all the pieces were done I arranged them onto an A2 sized landscape card and popped the pieces in place.

I hope this simple Bloom, You Are Beautiful Friendship Card inspired you today. Stay safe my friends. Let me know in the comments below, besides cardmaking what else you have been up to?

Easter Bunny Hugs Card | Ink On 3


Easter Bunny Hugs Card | Ink On 3

Hello, my friends. I hope you are all safe and getting lots of crafting done while you are stuck at home. 

Easter will be here before you know it and I thought it would be fun to pull out one of my favorite sets from Ink On 3, Lil Chicks and have some fun with it! Plus if you have been following me on IG, I have been trying to play along this month with Kathy Raccosin's Daily Marker Challenge, so I challenged myself to some no-line coloring today.

CARD DETAILS

As I mentioned I used the Lil Chicks set from Ink On 3 for most of the card. To begin I drew a circle on the front of the card panel and used it as a guide to stamp out the Easter eggs into the shape of a wreath using Fadeout Ink. I then stamped the Lil Chicks wearing their bunny ears in the center of the wreath. I then used Copic markers to color the images in.

I had the most fun adding the gell pen details to the images. To the chicks, I added white details to give them some fuzzy texture, or bunny fur. To the eggs, I used my metallic and gell pens to add designs and make them pop a bit more.

The sentiment comes from the Bunny Hugs stamp set that I stamped in Blackout Ink, and the Hugs die comes from the coordinating Bunny Hugs Die set. To give the Hugs word die cut more dimension, I stacked 3 layers and glued them together. I then added a layer of Liquid Pixie Dust to it and then heat embossed Crystal Clear embossing powder on top to give it a shiny finish.

I think it turned out pretty cute, and I hope you enjoyed this bright Easter Bunny Hugs Card featuring the Lil Chicks from Ink On 3.

Until next time... Happy Crafting and stay healthyπŸ‘‹
