AlexSyberiaDesign May Digi Stamp Release Blog Hop + Giveaway | Kokeshi Doll Friendship Cards


AlexSyberiaDesign May Digi Stamp Release Blog Hop + Giveaway | Kokeshi Doll Friendship Cards

Hello Friends! 

Welcome to Alex Syberia Design May Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. I will have all those details at the end of this post. I am in love with these Kokeshi dolls from Alex's release and had so much fun creating these two colorful Kokeshi Doll Friendship Cards. 


CARD DETAILS

For my first card, I combined the KOKESHI DOLL FUMIKO and the FULL BLOOM digital stamps. I used Paint 3D to manipulate and layer the designs, there are various programs out there and tutorials on how to use digital stamps so I will not explain that process.

I then printed the images out onto Neenah Solar White 80lbs paper and colored the images in using Copic markers.

Next, I trimmed the panel and added it to a black cardstock piece cut to fit an A2 card base.

I then stamped a sentiment from Studio Katia's BLOOMING BUNCH stamp set and added some BLOSSOM SPARKLE CRYSTALS. To finish this card off I added some white gel pen detailing and then some glossy accents to add more dimension and shine.

This next card was printed and colored the same way as the previous card. This time using the KOKESHI DOL MITSUKI and again the FULL BLOOM digital stamps.

This time I trimmed the panel a little more to create a larger border around the panel.

The stamp I used here comes from the YOU GOT THIS stamp set from Simon Says Stamp that I curved along the body of the KOKESHI DOL MITSUKI digital stamp.

Rainbow Hugs Friendship Card | No Line Coloring Using Atelier Inks | Ink On 3

Rainbow Hugs Friendship Card | Using Atelier Inks | Ink On 3

Yay, it's Friday!

I hope you all are doing well and have had a wonderful week. I'm sure by now you all know how much I love rainbows, for me rainbows symbolize hope and happiness to come. So I thought it was fitting to add a rainbow in today's friendship card. I pray this Pandemic will end soon so we can hug our families and friends again.
CARD DETAILS 

To begin, I stamped out the cute image from the new FOX AND BUNNY HUGS stamp set using FADEOUT INK. I then lightly drew the rainbow around the fox and bunny image.

I then used both the Atelier Re-inkers and the inkpads to color the images in. I found it easiest to add a drop of ink from the re-inkers onto a paint palette and dilute it with another drop of water. Where I needed a touch of color I picked up ink directly from the ink pad. Once the image was completely dry I added pencil detail for an added layer of shading.

To create the grass I masked off the area under the images and then blended out the area using the ATELIER GODDESS GREEN ink. I then spritzed the area and picked up the water with a paper towel to distress the area. To complete the grass, I added some flicked grass blades using a water brush. To the sky, I added clean water and then added a touch of blue ink from the ATELIER PEACOCK BLUE ink pad.

I then finished the card by stamping out the Hugs from the FOX AND BUNNY HUGS and then the little butterflies from the FOREVER FRIENDS using JUICY INK and heat setting them using CHROME EMB PWD

I hope this Rainbow Hugs Friendship Card inspired you today and for those of you that need a hug right now during this time, I am sending you one too.

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

Citrus Trimmings Friendship Cards | Studio Katia


 
Citrus Trimmings Friendship Cards | Studio Katia

Hello my sweet friends!

Today I am sharing a couple of colorful Summer inspired Citrus Cards. I had recently colored the images during Kathy Raccosin's Daily Coloring Challenge and thought they would make some fun Friendship cards.

CARD DETAILS

Like I said I had previously colored the CITRUS TRIMMINGS images in, but before I colored them with ARTEZA BRUSH PENS, I stamped them out onto Bristol paper and heat embossed the lines using gold embossing powder. Once the images were colored and dry, I fussy cut the Citrus images out.

Next, I created the backgrounds. On this first card, I chose 4 different color cardstock that matched the colors of the oranges I had colored. I then stacked, rotated, and flipped a few of the layers to end up with this colorful lattice-like background. I then glued them all together and attached it to the front of the card base.

I then popped up the Orange Citrus trimmings in the center of the card using FOAM and then stamped out the sentiment onto a tag I die cut from the PEONY TRIMMINGS Die set. I then finished off this card using BUBBLEGUM and RIPE PERSIMMON PEARLS.

For the Lemon/Lime version of the Citrus Card, the process was pretty much the same with a few exceptions.

This time I only used two colors of cardstock to create the background, and I glued the Citrus Trimmings along the bottom of the card without using foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment on to a banner from the DOTTED PATTERNS SET 4 and adhered it in the center of the card using foam tape. Finally, to finish this one off, I added GOLD FOIL PEARLS.  I also added some glossy accents to the center sections of the fruit, but I didn't like how it lost the detail of the watercolor painting I had done, so I did not add accents to the previous card. If you look closely you will see the difference.

Hopefully, you were inspired by this bright and colorful Citrus Trimmings Friendship Cards. I had so much fun designing these.
