Best DAY Ever

Hello, everyone. Natalia is here. And today I would like to show multipurpose holiday card. 

First of all I toned the background with distress inks of pink shades. Then, using Dotted Paterns: Loops, I cut the circles from the background to add volume to the card. I placed negative on washy tape, the circles became below it. After it I stamped Kobi’s Hugs & Kisses and Kobi the Birthday Bear on paper for markers and colored everything with Touch Twin and Copic Sketch alcohol markers

Using coordinating dies, cut everything out. Gave the bunch to Kobi and set him in bottom of the card and placed presents in front of him. 

Using coordinating dies from Best Ever set I cut out according words (two workpieces per word) and stuck together to add volume. Then I stamped the word Day (Happy Valentines Day phrase) from And The Fox Says set on the strip of vellum using silver embossing. Stuck the sentiment on top of the card. At the end I put everything on the workpiece which I cut out using Dotted Patterns: Darling Ribbon die.

St.Valentines Day inspired me a lot, that’s why I chose pink but I believe this color could be changed to any other by desire and the card will still look spectacularly. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Peony sentiment

Hello, everyone. Natalia is here. I can’t stop color flowers by Studio Katia with pencils.

Today I want to show the option of card on all occasions. First of all I took the frame die from Dotted Patterns Set – 1 | Creative Dies and cut out the workpiece from bright grey cardstock. Then, using beige inks and masks, I stamped Blooming Bunch | Clear Stamp Set on the upper left and upper right sides of the workpiece. Next I colored them with the Touch Twins and Copics.


Next stage was coloring with pencils (I believe the pencils lay down better not on “naked” cardstock but on the marker-colored cardstock. Also, using markers, you can change the tone of further pencil coloring). I took Polychromos and Prisma color pencils and colored upon marker coloring in 2 tones – purple and violet.
The important point in pencil coloring for me is the white pencil because it allows not only to add flares but to soften the transitions between colors.


After that I made banner with sentiment using Blooming Bunch | Clear Stamp Set on vellum with white embossing. Stuck it on Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive Clear Drying Craft Glue. Glued the background and decorated with Clear Round Drops – Mix.


Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
