Hello and welcome to Studio Katia 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop!


Today is Day 1 of the Blog Hop. If you hoped over from Emily Leiphart 's blog you are on the right track, or you can just start over at the Studio Katia Blog. Details on the Giveaway at the end of this post.

If you have been watching the sneak peeks, you would have seen this card already! I just had to share it again cause it's so cute and I just love the new KOBI MAKES A WISH and the fun new BIRTHDAY BALLOONS TRIMMINGS that come both horizontally and vertically! For more details on this card check out my previous post → HERE.

So let's see some more inspiration from this release.

CARD DETAILS

For this next card, I just had to color in this beautiful FLORAL GARDEN stamp.  How pretty is that design?! 😍

I stamped out this image using Versafine Black Onyx ink onto watercolor paper and then heat set it with clear embossing powder to make water coloring that much easier.

I then used  Zig Clean Color Brushes to color in the entire image and blended the colors using a water brush. Once the coloring was dry I used the large frame from the DARLING RIBBON AND FRAMES DIES to die cut the panel for the card base.

To finish off the card I stamped the greeting from the IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY set onto black card stock and then heat set it in white embossing powder. I then used the banner from DOTTED PATTERNS SET 2 DIES to die cut it out.

For some embellishing details, I glued a few of the new PASTEL RAINBOW CONFETTI. They are so pretty in person, you can barely see them on this card as they blend right into the background.

Hello Friendship Cards | Ornate Alphabet | Simon Says Stamp Rest and Refresh Release

Hello Friendship Cards | Ornate Alphabet | Simon Says Stamp Rest and Refresh Release by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Just like the card says, Hello Friend!

Today I am finally sharing a few cards I made using the new  ORNATE ALPHABET set from the latest Simon Says Stamp Rest and Refresh Release. I love the intricate design of these letters and for some reason, they transport me to a tropical destination which is so appropriate as the release is all about the relaxation and vacation vibes.

CARD DETAILS

For my first card today I began by using the WAVES AND HILLS stencil to blend out some waves in the background using a bunch of shades of Blue Distress Oxide inks. I then stamped out the word, Hello using the ORNATE ALPHABET set. To finish off the greeting I die cut and stacked a few layers of the BIG FRIENDS die using black cardstock and then glue it to the shadow die that I cut out in vellum. I also added a few sequins to embellish the card front.

For this next card, I went with bright rainbow colors. First I stamped out the image with watermark ink and heat set it using white embossing powder and then colored in the Hello that was stamped out using the ORNATE ALPHABET letters using Zig Clean color brushes.

To finish the greeting on this card front I die cut the scripted beautiful from the HELLO BEAUTIFUL GORGEOUS die set, stacked and glued two of them together then glued it to the card front.  For fun, I used an enamel dot to dot the "i".

Altenew June 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello Everyone and Welcome the Altenew June 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Blog Hop and Giveaway.

If you have hopped over from Lilith Eeckels blog you are right on track, or you can just start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog. Details on the giveaway at the end of the post 😊

CARD DETAILS

For my cards today I created a set of Rainbow inspired Encouragement cards using the Leaf Cluster Stamp set. These actually came together really quickly. 

Altenew June 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

In order to mass produce cards this way, I found it easier to use multiple stamping tools. One for each color I was stamping (3 for each card). First I would stamp out the leaf cluster that I wanted in the background and then move my piece of paper to the next stamp positioner and stamp out the next color and so on until I stamped out the last layer which below would be like the red leaf clusters in the image below.

To stamp out these images I used Distress Oxide Inks. Rather than wiping off any of the ink left behind on the stamps I misted them with water and then did some second generation stamping onto new panels in the same order to give me the watercolored look.

I then added some splatters to the top area of each card panel in a coordinating color and then stamped out the sentiment in the white space. The Encouragement greeting stamps come from both the Sentiment Strips set and the Leaf Clusters set.

For this next card, I chose to go with a traditional Red Rose color. I stamped out one of the floral clusters from the Forever in Love stamp set and then colored it in using Copic markers. I then used the coordinating Forever in Love die to cut it out.

To create some drama in the background I used the Warp Speed Stencil to add some black Diamond Glimmer paste and then finished it off with the Always and Forever sentiment from the Sentiment Strips set.
