STUDIO KATIA 2ND ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP

Welcome to Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2! 
How exciting to be a part of this Days! YAY!
I am on the design team for the second year already. And I'm very proud of Studio Katia!


To celebrate Studio Katia is giving away TWO $100 CAD Gift Certificates every day of the Blog Hop! That’s FOUR chances to win. The winners will be chosen randomly from comments left on all blogs of our Blog Hop.

And for today I made this long fun sea card. 
For my card I played with Under the Sea Stamp SetAs always I started with preparing all details of the card. I stamped and colored stamps, cut them with Under the Sea Coordinating Dies
The last step was to make the background: I blended it with blue, yellow and brown inks, sprinkled it with some water and watercolor and trimmed the piece to be just smaller than the card base. I cut and scored a card base from thecraft cardstock and it was slightly smaller than a long sized envelope. 
Then I glued all the details. Also I embelish the card with March Crystals and googly eyes - are just perfect to add to the images as another fun detail.
I really like the elongated shape of the card. So it turned out to place more images on it to better show the inner sea world.

 I am so excited to be a guest designer this month and I have two cards for you with a new Build-A-Flower Set

YOU ARE INSPIRING
I started working on my card by stamping the flowers using Cool Summer Night Oval Ink Set and the leaves using Tropical Forest Oval Ink Set and cut out all of the images. To create the background panel I decided to use grey cardstock. I find it so stylish. So I used the Rock Collection Oval Ink Set on the background to make the shadows of the flowers. 


After my background was done, I added "You are inspiring" and "Hugs" (I've die cut it using one of the Script Words Die Set ) sentiments. This finished up the card! 


YOU ARE THE BEST MOM
Recently, I really like to create a circle card base for my projects. It looks so unusual! For this card I stamped the flowers using Tea Party Oval Ink Set and the leaves using Tropical Forest Oval Ink Set


Then I made the background blending Caribbean Sky Crisp Dye Ink on the white paper. For my composition I also added two twigs from the Forever and a Day Die Set


Next, I foam mounted my images and also stamped a sentiment –You are the best MOM. And embellished this project using some crystals.  



Thank you so much for joining me! See you next time.

I am so excited to join this even and share some of my new cards I created using Altenew products!

"Thank you DAD for everything"
And the first one with Best Dad Stamp & Die BundleAs always I started with preparing all details of the card. I stamped and colored stamps with my Copic markers onto white cardstock and cut them all. I didn't want to make a simple card, so I decided to fill it not only with form, but also with color. So first I tonned the base using Aqualicious Crisp Dye InkRocky Shore Crisp Dye Ink and sprinkled it with some water. Next, I white heat embossed Happy Fathers Day sentiment onto a black cardstock panel, foam mounted it in the center of a milk color panel and added my colored elements around it. For more brutality cards I decorated it with metal brads.




"So proud of you"
Another one card is so simple with Budding Thanks Stamp SetFor this card I just stamped the flowers using Tropical Forest Mini Cube Set & Cherry Blossom Mini Cube Set, cut them with Budding Thanks Die Set, and collected a flower vase using Mosaic Dome Die SetHowever, I turned it upside down and got a vase image. 




"You are my inspiration!"
This is a very simple card using Trigonometry Die Set. I just cut out a lot of triangles of different shapes and colors and made an ornament out of them.




"Wings of Hope"
For this card I played with the Wings of Hope Stamp Set. So I stamped this incredibly beautiful stamps using Deep Blue Seas Mini Cube SetSea Shore Mini Cube Set and Red Sunset Mini Cube Set. Then I cut them with Wings of Hope Die SetI glued all the flowers in the form of flower wreaths. I like how it looks! For the main sentiment for this card I white heat embossed "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly" onto black cardstock.

And I have a flower card to share with you today. 
For my card I played with the Tall Flowers stamp setAs always I started with preparing all details of the card. I stamped and colored this incredibly beautiful stamps with my Copic markers onto Premier Polar White Cardstock, cut them all with Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts.
I really like the Buttercup Cardstock, so I used it for the backgroundThen I glued all the flowers in the form of flower wreaths. I like how it looks! 


For the main sentiment for this card I white heat embossed “Birthday greetings. May all your wishes come true” onto Midnight Cardstock.
Also I embelish the card with white drops. 



In my opinion, the card is a very sincere and pleasant. That's the kind of card I'd give my mom!
