Studio Katia Watercolor Thank You Card

Hi everyone! Today I’ve created a fall theme card. I used cute pumpkins from the Meowy Halloween stamp set. To start, I’ve stamped a few pumpkins with brown ink on watercolor paper.


It is best to use waterproof ink with watercoloring, but all I had was regular ink and so I had to be very careful coloring my image for the ink not to bleed, which gave me an effect very close to no line coloring technique.


Using masking technique I’ve stamped more pumpkin images. Next I drew light pencil lines for bushes and colored everything with Gansai Tambi watercolors.



Using Dotted Patterns: Nested Square die I cut out a square panel our of my image and adhered it to the square card base using foam tape. To finish off my card, I heat embossed Thank You sentiment with white embossing powder on ivory cardstock.



Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hello everyone! Here is my last card for My Favorite Things 2017 Card Design Superstar contest.

I’ve started by stamping the images from Mermazing stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar white paper and coloring them using Copic markers before die cutting with their coordinating dies.




Then, I made two backgrounds for my card. I used watercolors for my first backround and distress inks for the second background.

After that, I cut out a small banner out of white cardstock using my paper trimmer and stamped the sentiment using black inks.

MFT Card Design Superstar: Coloring Virtuoso




Hello everyone! Here is my second card for My Favorite Things 2017 Card Design Superstar challenge. I'm entering in the Coloring Virtuoso category.

I’ve started by stamping the images from Mermazing stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar white paper and coloring them using Copic markers before die cutting with their coordinating dies.






 Next I’ve started working on my background. I wanted to create the glow underwater effect. I used light markers to smoothly blur the background from center to edge so that the background seemed to glow from within.





Once my background was almost ready, i’ve added some splatters of silvery paint and some dots to add intersting texture.




Next, I cut out a small banner out of white cardstock using my paper trimmer and heat embossed the sentiment. I glued all the elements with foam tape and then mounted the panel on a white card base and added a few sequins as a final touch.

Thanks for stopping by!

Всем привет и добро пожаловать на новый осенне-зимний релиз Studio Katia! Для блог-хопа посвящённого новому релизу, я сделала рождественскую открытку с невероятно красивой пуансеттией.
Я начала с того, что отштамповала несколько пуансеттий на белой бумаге чернилами мементо. Затем координирующими ножами я вырубила маски, и поверх масок отштамповала листья и ягоды. После этого я снова закрыла все изображения масками и затонировала фон голубыми дистресс чернилами. Когда фон был готов, я аккуратно сняла все маски и начала раскрашивать цветы Altenew маркерами. Затем я добавила акценты белой ручкой и использовала нож Dotted Frames. После этого я сделала сентимент Be Merry горячим золотым эмбоссингом на полоске вэллума, и приклеила поверх открытки. В конце я добавила немного кристаллов и конфетти в качестве финального акцента и приклеила мою открытку к белой основе.
Я разыгрываю сертификат на 35$ CAD в магазине Studio Katia и рандомно выберу победителя из комментариев.
Спасибо, что заглянули, и не забудьте оставить комментарий чтобы выиграть призы.

And the winner is... ARIANNA BARBARA! Congrats, AriannaPlease write to info@studiokatia.com with subject SK GC Kristina's winner within 48 hours :)

STUDIO KATIA FALL+WINTER PREVIEW: THANKSGIVING SHAKER CARD



Hello everyone! I’m so excited to share with you my Thanksgiving shaker card for Studio Katia preview week!

To start I’ve stamped the pumpkins from giving Thanks stamp set with memento ink, and coloured with COPIC markers in fall colors. I used coordinating dies and then I toned white card base with orange distress ink and splattered with water. I cut the base to square.

From the scraps I die cut the Thanks sentiment, the sentiment also comes with outline so I die cut outline out of white card-stock and adhered it all together.






Then i die cut the shake base out of the new Dotted Patterns: Fancy Square which measures 4.25x4.25 inches and added the new 3mm sequins Iridescent Veil. 
I've adhered it all together and the card is complete.



3MM Iridescent Veil Sequins

Из оставшейся части я вырубила сентимент Thanks координирующим ножом и приклеила вырубку на белый негатив. Затем я вырубила квадратную форму для шейкера ножом Dotted Patterns-Fancy Square и собрала шейкер добавив пайетки Irediscent Veil. И склеила вместе все элементы открытки.
