Peony Trimmings Hexagon Shaker Card | Studio Katia



Peony Trimmings Hexagon Shaker Card | Studio Katia

Hello Friends and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying some downtime with your family at home during this pandemic in this crazy world around us. If you are alone, make sure you are staying active on social media. This is a great time to be more social virtually. Hopefully, this virus will be contained soon so we can return to our usual life and the kids can go back to school. In the meantime, let's make the most of it and do our part to keep our families and our community safe by staying at home. Being a nurse I do have to go to work but will do my best to be safe when caring for my patients and hopefully not bring any virus home with me.

I don't have a St.Patty's day card to share but it is definitely Spring-inspired which gives me hope for the future. I cannot wait to see some color in my back yard and see the busy bees back at work in my garden.

  CARD DETAILS

To begin I stamped and white heat embossed the PEONY TRIMMINGS. I then colored them in using Arteza Brush pens. I then die cut the flowers with the coordinating PEONY TRIMMINGS dies.

Next, I die cut the background using the MICRO HEXAGON COVER and glued a CLEAR ACETATE SHEET to the back of the die-cut panel. To the background, I added a thin strip of foam tape along the perimeter to create the shaker area. I then added the MAJESTIC GLITTER and the IRIDESCENT CRYSTALS to the top of the card front base and glued down the Hexagon cover.

To finish up and embellish the card further, I added the cute little be from the HONEY BEES stamp and DIE set

The sentiment also comes from the PEONY TRIMMINGS that I then stamped onto a banner from the PEONY TRIMMINGS Die set.

For an added touch of shine, I added some IRIDESCENT BUBBLES in various sizes.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you were inspired by this Spring Peony Trimmings Hexagon Shaker Card. Until next time... Happy Crafting and make sure to wash your hands! 👋

Purrfect Day Cards | Heffy Doodle Friends Blog Hop


Purrfect Day Cat Cards | Heffy Doodle Friends Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the Heffy Friends Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the new Heffy Doodle release with some great inspiration and a giveaway, too!


CARD DETAILS

Both my cards today feature the cutest kitties from the Purrfect Day Stamp Set. Seriously, if I was a cat lady this scene would probably be happening in real life all day long, right!? I don't have any cats but I have many friends who do so this will make a great card for them!

To begin, I stamped out the play structure onto a piece of cardstock that will end up being the card front and the kitties on another piece of paper. I then colored all the images in using alcohol markers. I then cut the kittens out using the coordinating Purrfect Day Dies.

Before popping and gluing down the kittens onto the play area, I used the Steady Heart Stencil to blend out some rainbow-colored hearts. I didn't mask off the structure I just avoided blending near the stamped areas.

I then stamped out the sentiment onto the background and the MEOW balloon. I then added all the kitties to the scene, trimmed the panel and glued it to an A2 sized card base.

To the inside of this cute card, I added a little mouse and the PURRTHDAY greeting.

For this next card, I began by creating the sun in the background. To create it, I began by using the Square Masquerade Stencil and blended yellow ink around the edges, leaving a lighter area around the center. I then kept rotating the square stencil and repeating this process to create all the sun rays around the sun. I then used the Circle Masquerade Stencil to apply a layer of orange ink to intensify the area and define the sun.

Next, I masked off the area for the grass and blended out the green ink. I then spritzed it with a little water to distress the area. I also added a light blend of bleu to the sky.

Now that the background was complete, once again I used one of the cute kittens from the Purrfect Day Stamps and added him to look like he was laying in the grass soaking up the warm sun rays.

I then die cut the Sunshine word die a few times, stacked and glued them together and added it along the bottom of the stenciled sun. I then added a jewel to where the dot of the "i" would be and finished this card off by stamping out the HELLO.
