Sending Happy Thoughts Colorful Pomegranate Trimmings Card | Studio Katia


Sending Happy Thoughts Colorful Pomegranate Trimmings Card | Studio Katia

Happy Monday friends!

I wanted to send you all some happy thoughts in the form of a cheerful card today. I love bright and colorful cards and this one just makes me smile as I hope it does you.

CARD DETAILS

To begin, I had stamped out the image from the POMAGRATE TRIMMINGS set and heat set it using Black embossing powder. I then used Arteza Brush pens to color the pomegranate images in non-traditional colors. I then fussy cut the image out.

Next, I die cut the HALFTONE LINES COVER using 4 different colors of cardstock. I then used the strips to create a colorful background for the card front. Because the die cuts various widths of strips you can use them to create various designs for the backgrounds.

I then added the POMAGRATE TRIMMINGS piece across the card front and popped it up using foam tape, trimming off the excess that hung off the sides.


For the sentiment, I stamped the Sending Happy Thoughts from the PEONY TRIMMINGS set on a banner from the coordinating PEONY TRIMMINGS dies.

For embellishments, I used LEMON BURST, SEAFOAM, PRISMATIC SKY, and BUBBLEGUM PEARLS.

I hope this cheerful Pomegranate Trimmings Card gave you happy thoughts and made you smile today.

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

Thinking of You Flora Stenciled Card | Ink On 3


Thinking of You Flora Stenciled Card | Ink On 3

Hello, my friends!
Today I have a super simple card to share with you featuring the new FLORA Stencil from Ink On 3's April Release. I love that they are coming out with stencils as ink blending is so popular right now and fun to do. Plus they pair perfectly with the Atelier Inks.

CARD DETAILS

To begin, I masked off the leaf areas of the image and then began ink blending. I used PEACOCK BLUE on the outer petals and then ATELIER MY PURPLE JAM ink on the inside petals of the flowers.

I then removed the masks and blended the ATELIER GODDESS GREEN ink on the leaves.

Once the ink was completely dry I stamped out the sentiment from the WATER LILY stamp set using JUICY INK and then heat set it using BLACK AS NIGHT EMB. P.

To embellish the card I added some green and blue pearls, trimmed the card panel, and popped it up using foam tape onto the card base.

I hope this simple Thinking of You card has inspired you today. This would make a great card to send a friend who you are thinking about these days. Please stay safe everyone!

Thank you for stopping by 😊

Graduation Cards | Simon Says Stamp | Sunny Days Ahead Release


Graduation Cards | Simon Says Stamp | Sunny Days Ahead Release

Yay, Simon Says Stamp is Shipping Again! So happy to hear because I need to do some shopping 😁

My cards today feature the new GRAD HAT DIES from the SUNNY DAYS AHEAD Release. These were all pretty quick and simple to make and will be perfect to send to a 2020 Graduate that will need some extra love this year.

CARD DETAILS

For this first card, I cut out the GRAD HATS using only the top layer of the die using various colors of cardstock to create a rainbow of hats. I then pieced and glued them together.

To the middle of the square card, I stamped out the "Heck Yeah" from the CZ Design TABBED SENTIMENTS stamp set.

I then arranged the hats in a circle pattern, making them as equally distanced as possible and then popped them in place using foam tape.

To embellish and finish the card I added some PRISM GEM stickers and just glued it to a black square 5-inch card panel.

For this next card, I used the GRAD HAT DIES again, cutting both layers using black cardstock. I did stack a couple of the top layers together to create dimension. For the tassel, I used a silver foil cardstock and then just added a black gem to the center of the hat and tassel.

Next, I stamped the sentiments onto the card panel using stamps from the CZ DESIGN GREAT THINGS stamp set. Before gluing the hat in place, I die cut the panel using a frame from the STITCHED RECTANGLES Dies.

I then popped the panel up with foam tape and adhered it to grey cardstock that I had glued onto an A2 sized card base.

The GRAD HAT on this last card was done the same way as the previous card only using white on the tassel and a clear stone on the center of the cap.

I then just die cut the top card piece of cardstock using the BEST DAY EVER DIE and used the negative piece. Behind it, I glued the negative die cut pieces onto a piece of back cardstock that I then popped up using black foam tape. I then trimmed down the top panel leaving a black border and glued that onto the card base.

To finish the card I added some SILVER FEVER FUSION SEQUINS on the card front.

And that is pretty much how I created these simple graduation cards. I love how they turn out.

Sending a huge shoutout to all the 2020 graduates! I'm sure this was not what any one of them ever imagined would be happening during their final year of school, but more then ever they need to be celebrated and get the recognition that they deserve. So if you know anyone that is graduating, send them a cardπŸ’›
