Color Swatch Crafty Friendship Card | Studio Katia


Color Swatch Crafty Friendship Card | Studio Katia

Hello and Happy Saturday Friends!

For my card today I was inspired by color swatches, so I thought it would be fun to create a Colorful Color Swatch Crafty Friendship Card featuring the new DOTTED SQUARE FRAME from Studio Katia's latest release. This die is perfect not only as a frame but because of the square dies you get this would also make a great die to use for swatching ink colors.

  CARD DETAILS

To begin I die cut the DOTTED SQUARE FRAME from a piece of Neenah Cardstock. Once I had the pieces all cut out I began ink blending each square in rainbow order using a variety of Distress Oxide Ink pads. See thumbnails below for the colors used.

Next, I glue the panel down onto the card front and then popped the squares in place using foam tape. To the orange square, I stamped out the sending stamp from the JAPANESE PEONY set.

Next, I die cut 3 layers of the Crafty from the ARTSY TRIMMINGS DIES and the hugs from the LOVELY WORDS DIES, stacked and glued them together. I then glued them in place and finished them off with a layer of glossy accents.

To finish the card, I added some ONYX CRYSTALS as embellishments and then die cut and added the black frame to balance out the black focal points on the card.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you were inspired by this Color Swatch Crafty Friendship Card. Sending you all Crafty Hugs!

Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋

Love Is In the Air Slimline Valentine's Day Card | Honey Bee Stamps



Love Is In the Air Slimline Valentine's Day Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello, my Honey Bee Friends!

Have you ever gone on a Hot Air Balloon ride? It is still on my bucket list of one of the things I would love to do! One of these days...

Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought I would squeeze in another lovey, dovey card to celebrate the Day. Although I think this card could be used for so many other occasions simply by switching out the sentiment I used.

  CARD DETAILS

I began this card by cutting out a piece of Bristol Paper to create the Slimline card front to measure 8.5 x 4 inches. I then stamped out the Hot Air Balloon Stamps from the UP, UP AND AWAY set and then covered them up with some masks.

Next, I used the BACKGROUND BLENDER BRUSHES to blend out some colorful clouds using Atelier Inks and the OUTDOOR SCENE BUILDER Stencils.

Once the clouds were done, I removed the masks and colored in the balloons using Copic markers. I should have used Neenah paper for the Copic coloring, but at the time I thought only about the ink blending.  So I went with a Bristol paper which wasn't the best choice for alcohol markers as the paper is much too absorbent, making it more difficult to blend the alcohol inks. Regardless, I made it work, lol!

I then stamped out the banners to embellish each hot air balloon from the UP, UP AND AWAY set and then cut them out with the coordinating UP, UP AND AWAY DIES dies.

Next, I stamped out the Love is in The Air sentiment from the BLOWN AWAY set onto the stamped banner and used the coordinating BLOWN AWAY DIES to cut it out and then foam mounted it on to the center of the middle balloon.

To finish off and embellish this colorful card, I used some sticker gem from the OCEAN BREEZE GEM STICKER pack to add some bling to the middle balloon and added a sprinkle of SWEETHEARTS CLAY HEARTS here and there.

It is hard to see from these pictures, but I used a sparkle Gelly Roll pen to add highlights and details to the balloons.

I hope this Love Is In the Air Slimline Valentine's Day Card inspired you today and I wish you all a great Valentine's Day this year.  As for me on Valentine's, you can find our family at a Boston Pizza eating a Heart-shaped Pizza which has become a family tradition that started over 20 years ago when my husband and I first started dating. Yes, we are that romantic and now we even include the kids, lol! Do you have Valentine's Tradition? Let me know in the comment below if you do💖

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋
