Studio Katia Birthday Blog Hop

  • Hey lovelies, I hope you are all having a great week 🙂

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

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

If you are hopping along you should have arrived here from the lovely Coralynn’s Blog 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.

  1. Oh my gosh, this card is stunning! I love flowers and flower stamps and your colors are very pretty. For me, because I love color so much, I would have made the flowers multi colored, but that’s just me. The gold frame around the flowers is just the right touch. 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. I can’t wait to win something!


  2. LOVING all of your beautiful gold accents, the circle frame die, the beads, that gold embossing and that glorious flower! So elegant!


  3. Loved the sweet soft look of this card. Also loved the use of the seed beads in your shaker. I have oodles of seed beads from my beaded card days. Now i have another way to use them.


  4. Your card is stunning, I love everything about it! Your colouring is beautiful and I adore the background with the stamped dots and hearts, subtle but gorgeous!


  5. Beautiful card! I really like the beads as a change up from the sequins. Thank you for sharing and for the chance to win.


  6. 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!!!


  7. Your coloring of the image is so beautiful. I love the gold frame around the shaker. Add that elegance to the project

  9. Tracey, your beautiful shaker adds a whole new level to the meaning of classy and elegant! You’ve created absolute magic with these products! So fitting that Katia has chosen shaker cards as her birthday theme, as she’s most definitely ‘shaken up’ our crafting community with her success! Thrilled that you’re part of it!


  10. Your no line coloring is terrific. I like the gold added to the top and bottom of the card front. It does tie everything together.


  11. Your card is stunning, Tracy! I love the no line coloring technique (haven’t been brave enough to try it yet) and you did an amazing job! The gold frame beautifully accents that awesome flower and the seed beads look great in the shaker. Thanks so much for sharing!!


  12. Love every detail of this card. The soft polka dot background, beautifully colored flowers, gold frame, beads and embossing, and it’s a shaker. Lovely!


  13. This is so pretty! I have never used seed beads in a shaker but I really like how it looks. This is a wonderful design.
