STUDIO KATIA three Christmas interactive cards

Hello, everyone. Natalia is here. Today I would like to show you 3 holiday interactive cards (different kinds).

First card is the through shaker, which I made like window. 

At the beginning I stamped characters from Friends of Winter, Winter Kobi, Foxes and Hello Alice sets using Memento inks. Colored everything with alcohol markers Touch Twin and Copic Sketch. After it I cut necessary figures using coordinating dies. Using frame die from Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames I cut 2 workpieces. Then I toned both workpieces with distress inks and stencils. Using Stitched Loops die I cut windows on the upper workpiece and volume windows from white cardstock. After it I cut imitation of snowdrifts from white cardstock using hill dies. 

Using foam tape and transparent plastic I made shaker and filled it with Pink Winter, Crystal Rainbow Confetti, Majestic 3mm, Clear Dust. Then the time has come to glue everything together and add banner, which I made as a plate on grey cardstock with Happy Holidays sentiment from Origami Winter set, using silver embossing. Interesting fact – I used the pool from Hello Alice set as a carpet under the Christmas tree.

For the second card I used Winter Kobi and Friends of Winter sets. Making process is the same as on previous card so I’ll describe only differences.

I added splashes on toned background using two brushes WINK of Stella: Clear and White

Here the pool from Hello Alice turns to ice – on transparent plastic with silver embossing. Using spinner dies I cut the track for Kobi’s moves on ice.

With the white powder and embossing pad I stamped “HoHoHo” from Friends of Winter set on the background. 

All the details I stuck on adhesive tape (some on foam tape). And voila, Kobi slips on ice and depart from his sleigh with presents.

The third card – here I used Christmas trees and sleigh from Winter Kobi set and the Kobi himself from Kobi The Birthday Bear set. This card is maximum simple – a lot of white space because of snowdrifts.

Kobi riding the hill on the sleigh. Here I toned the background with distress inks, cut white workpieces which imitate snowdrifts using hill dies. On the background workpiece I cut curved track (in the shape of upper snowdrift) with the spinner dies.

I stuck everything with adhesive tape, placed two nearer snowdrifts on the foreground with the foam tape. Using silver powder and embossing pad I stamped on the white cardstock “Happy Holidays” sentiment from Origami Winter set. And decorate everything with Majestic Fusion sequins.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!



25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017 Studio Katia

Hello, everyone. I’m happy to join to the great event – Tracey McNeely’s 7th annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags, a link up to play along, and of course, prizes!  You can read all the details HERE 

Today I would like to share Christmas Tags, which I made for Studio Katia’s day.

 I like shakers so much, that making tags is one more reason to make little sweet shakers. First of all I cut workpieces using Dotted Shaker Tag die 1. Lower part (without the window) I toned with Distress inks. Then stamped elements from Winter Kobi set and colored them using Touch Twin alcohol markers. After it, using coordinating dies, I cut all the elements. 

Next, I stamped sentiments from Pink Winter set on white cardstock, using silver embossing. Filled the windows with: 3MM Majestic Sequins; Clear Dust Seed Beads; Snowflakes; Crystal Clear Confetti; Crystal Rainbow Confetti; Majestic ConfettiI glued cover to each tag, all cut elements I put on washy tape, stuck the banner with sentiment above and satisfied with the work done.

Christmas Gift Tags | Theme week with Studio Katia

Hello, everyone. Natalia is here. Today I will show my Christmas tags in the framework of the theme week. 

And, of course, the card in the same thematic. There was no question for me, what tags I’ll make, I knew it will be shakers. Also I knew the heroes of my tags. I took the set I’ve never work with before – Friends of winter (because of this cuties I decide to make optional card – just couldn’t stop).
I stamped Friends of winter with Memento inks and colored them with Touch Twin and Copic Scetch alcohol markers. Then I cut them with coordinating dies. Next, I made workpieces, using Dotted Shaker Tag. 2 or 3 workpieces with windows and 3 without. Inner part (without window) I toned with Distress inks, according to colors of the character. After that, I cut 3 workpieces with window for each tag from very dense cardstock which gave volume to the shaker. I stuck all workpieces together and glued to the base with adhesive tape. After that, I filled shaker with 3MM Majestic Sequins and Clear Dust Seed Beads – this sets I put almost in every of my shakers. Also I put: Snowflakes; Crystal Rainbow Confetti; Crystal Clear Confetti; Majestic Confetti. On cover of shaker I stamped sentiments, suitable to each character, using silver embossing. Under cover I stuck transparent plastic and glued everything together. Such beautiful result we have in the end.

Now shortly about the card. I made it, inspired by tags, to have the set.

As I always do 2 workpieces to 1 stamp (in a case of fatality), I have got beloved trio. Additionally I stamped Christmas tree and gifts from Winter Kobi set, using Memento inks. Colored with Copic Scetch and Touch Twin alcohol markers. Cut everything with coordinating dies.

I’ve been thinking for a long time what die to take for central composition, because the characters are quite big. I stopped at one of my favorite dies – Stitched Creative Window. I took frame die from Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames and cut the base with it. Then, using Distress inks, I toned places for windows. White embossed snowflakes took place in windows. Silver embossed sentiment I made with Origami Winter set.

 As it was with tags, I cut 3 workpieces from dense cardstock, using Stitched Creative Window die to add volume for shaker. Stuck all together with adhesive tape. Filled the windows with: 3MM Majestic Sequins; Clear Dust Seed Beads; Snowflakes; Crystal Clear Confetti; Crystal Rainbow Confetti; Majestic Confetti. Stuck shaker together and glued it to the base. Stuck elf and deer on adhesive tape such, as if they look out of the window. In the middle window I stuck Christmas tree and gifts, on top of it I stuck Santa on washy tape and voila, card is done.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
