Studio Katia New Release Preview Day 3


Hello everyone! This week is Studio Katia new release week !!! The release will be available to purchase on Friday 25th. 




I made a shaker card with brand new Lovely Blooms stamp for Preview Day 3.



 First, I stamped the flowers with clear embossing ink on watercolor paper and heat embossed it with metallic embossing powder. 



Next, I watercolored the images with muted pink and coral paints for the flowers and sepia paint for the leaves and splattered it with some of the leftover paint and also with a solution of Perfect Pearls. 




Once my coloring was done, I’ve added more shades with my colored pencils. Next, I die cut a shaker window out of my watercolored panel using brand new Scallop Window die and put my shaker together with foam tape adding sequins.



 For more inspiration and info on the new release then head on over to the Studio Katia Blog

This week is also Studio Katia’s 2nd Birthday so make sure you check out the HUGE blog hop that will be happening on the 25th & 26th. 



Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Simon Says Stamp May 2018 Release - Sending Sunshine

Hello everyone! It's a New Release day at Simon Says Stamp and this time is called Sending Sunshine collection!





 I want to show you my card featuring brand new "You are My Sunshine" wafer dies.


 First, I stamped the center image of "Center Cut Burst" background stamp with clear embossing inks onto watercolor paper and then white heat embossed.Then I wet my paper and slightly colored the background with some peachy orange and beige paints.


Once my background was dry I splattered it with the same colors and also splattered it with gold paint. Next, I die cut the sentiment "You are My Sunshine" from new Sending Sunshine release a few times and adhered them all together with gold die cut.


 At last, I foam mounted my watercolor panel on top of Neenah Desert Storm card base and finished my card with sparkling sequins!




Hope you liked my card and have a great day!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory Release + GIVEAWAY



Hello everyone! Today I have two cards to share using the new Build-A-Flower Morning Glory stamp set from Altenew. 


Altenew have a special release of a Build-A-Flower Set every month and this month it’s the turn of the Morning Glory.

For my first card I stamped the flowers and the leaves with Morning Frost Altenew inks on a piece of white paper. 



Next, I colored the images with my Polychromos pencils, to make the flowers more realistic. 



When my coloring was done, I blended Frayed Leaf Altenew inks on my panel and stamped some branches and leaves with the same inks and added clear sequins to finished my card.





For my second card I blended Ocean Waves Altenew inks in the corners of white panel. 

For the flowers I used Frosty Pink, then Coral Berry and Ruby Red. I do not use other layers of the flower to make my flower soft look. I used Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades for the leaves. 


 I decide to add two branches from Forever And Always and Wings of Hope stamp sets on my card for more intersting look. I used Altenew Golden Peach Crisp embossing powder for gold heat embossed brunch and die cutting with ccordinating die. Next, I foam mounted the flowers on top of my panel and added clear sequins to finished my card.

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway + VIDEO






Hello everyone! Today I'm participating in Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1

If you came from Laura Bassen you are on the right track, but if not please start at the Altenew blog


VIDEO TUTORIAL

A detailed process of this card you can watch here on this post or in HD at my YouTube channel.



Thank you so much for watching!

In celebration of these past four years, Altenew is hosting a special four-day blog hop! With four days, you know there is going to be so much Altenew inspiration heading your way from many talented designers! There are also prizes up for grabs, and even a shopping discount code. All these details will be listed at the bottom of this post.


Thanks Altenew for inspiring me to make my first card in 2016 with their gorgeous Vintage Roses! It's been a real delight to see how they turn into such a successful crafting company!



To celebrate Altenew's Anniwersary I made a card with beautiful Peony Spray stamp set.



 CARD DETAILS

 I've started by stamping peonies set 3 times onto light grey cardstock using clear inks and white heat embossed.




Next, I colored the peonies with Prismacolor pencils. I love the soft look of this pencils on light grey cardstock. I used four shades of pencils along with a white pencil for highlights. 


 Once my coloring was done, I die cut the images with coordinating die. Next, I heat embossed peonies onto light grey panel with white embossing powder for the background. I foam mounted peonies on my grey panel and cut out the excess.


For the sentiment I used the Hello die from Flower Arrangement die set. 


Sometimes I have some troubles with detailed thin dies. So I decided to show you little die cutting trick in my video tutorial. 


At last I glued my panel onto white card base and finished the card with some sequins and drops.
