Studio Katia Birthday Blog Hop

  • Hey lovelies, I hope you are all having a great week πŸ™‚

I am very honoured to have been asked to take part in a fantastic blog hop for the lovely Studio KatiaΒ 1st Birthday !

If you haven’t checked out Studio Katia then trust me you need to ! They doΒ amazing Stamps, Dies and fantastic sequins and embellishments.

If you are hopping along you should have arrived here from the lovely Coralynn’s BlogΒ if you get lost anywhere along the way just head on back to Studio Katia Blog for the blog hop list.

Everyone on the hop created shaker cards and for my card I also used the beautiful Together We Bloom stamp set long with a mix of beautiful embellishments (full list and links are at the end of this post).

I stamped the images onto some Simon Says Stamp Fog card….which I have found out is beautiful for using pencils on ! masking some areas off so I could arrange the stamps around the bottom edge. I used Simon Says Barely Beige Ink pad for stamping as I wanted to use no line colouring technique.

I then coloured the images using Faber- Castell Polychromo pencils.

For the sentiment I stamped it twice to give a shadow look, just making sure to heat emboss only one of the layers.

I then created the shaker element using some Stitched circle dies and fun foam, I filled the shaker element with some seed beads and Sparkling Crystals. I then adhered to the card base that I created using the same Fog card and stamped onto it using Simons Dot & hearts background stamp.

I decided the card still needed something so I took the same gold card that I had used on the shaker and adhered two thin strips to the card base, one to the top and one to the bottom. I then finished the card off with Sparkling Crystals.

Your card, just, inspired a birthday card, for my grandson. Instead of using flowers, I’ll use some fish, or something, and it might look like a port-hole in a submarine. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

Teri that’s awesome I’m so glad I inspired you, I’d love to see the card when it’s finished x

Oh my gosh, this card is stunning! I love flowers and flower stamps and your colors are very pretty.

I love the seed beads which I have a ton of because I also make jewelry. My mother would love this card for Mother’s Day! Thanks for being a part of the hop and showing us your pretty card.

Great job with the no-line coloring, Tracy! I’ve yet to try that as it might be too artsy for me to accomplish. Your shaker framed in gold with the other two strips really jazzed this one up another notch.
