Japanese Peony Slimline Birthday Card | Studio Katia



Hello dear friends and Happy Monday! 

I am on the Studio Katia Blog today showcasing one of my favorite stamps from Studio Katia, the Japanese Peony Stamp and Coordinating Dies. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers and I can't wait to see them bloom again in my garden in the Spring.

CARD DETAILS

To begin I stamped out two flowers onto watercolor paper and then painted them in using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. Once they were once they were dry I diecut each flower and a few extra leaves with the coordinating dies and set them aside to work on the rest of the card front. 

To create a lattice like background for the flowers I cut a piece of paper that measured 4.25x 8.5 inches and then used the Halftone Dots Cover Die to die cut the panel, running it twice through the machine to create a larger panel. Before adhering the background layer to the card front, I blended out some Broken China distress oxide ink onto the card front and then glued down the lattice-like background.

To finish off the card, I glued the bottom peony onto the background and popped up the yellow peony with foam tape. The sentiment I used comes from the Birthday Greeting set and the Friend word die comes from the Spring Bouquet Die set. To add some shiny details I used glossy accents and added a few iridescent bubbles along the card front.

A Sweet Happy Bee-lated Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps



Happy Monday Friends! 

Today I have a really fun card to share with you featuring a ton of Honey Bee Stamp sets. I thought it would be fun to pair the Blah Humbunny with his stuffed little belly surrounded by sweet treats to make a Bee-lated birthday card. I know it's way too punny but I couldn't help myself 😂 I will also be sharing this card on the HBS Blog if you want to head over there.

CARD DETAILS

To begin I stamped the cupcake and the slice of cake from the Pice of  Cake set, onto a card front then stamped all the other images on a separate piece of paper Neenah cardstock. The rest of the images I used come from Mae the Mouse, and the Birds and the Bees sets.  I then colored all the stamped images in using Copic markers and then die cut them with their coordinating dies.

Copic List: Bunny (W1,W2, W5, RV10, RV00, 0) Chocolates (E18, E29, E39, C1, C3, RV00) Cookie base and cake (E00, E000, E50, E21) Icing (R81, R83, R85) Wrapper (B00, B02) Strawberry (RV29, R27, R46, YG03, YG13, YG17) Bees (Y08, B00)

For the card front sentiment, I used a few sets to come up with the final greeting. The "Happy" and the "- lated" come from the Lily the Lamb set. The "BEE" comes from the Hi Honey set and the "I can explain..." comes from the Blah HumBunny set. I love how the Honey Bee sets all work well together to build your own sentiments.

Once my scene was complete and my pieces were all glued down and popped into place, I added Liquid Pixie Dust to the cupcake and the bee's wings for sparkle and then added a layer of glossy accents and set the card front off to dry.

To the inside of the card, I added the Bunny's excuse by stamping out the "I love my Sweets" sentiment that comes from the Brie Mine stamp set.

Once the card front was dry, I added it with foam tape to a Large Scalloped frame that I had die cut and glued to the card base.  And that pretty much completed the card.
