Kobi in love

Hello, everyone. Natalia is here. Today I would like to show you my simple Valentine’s card.
First of all I colored stamped Kobi and bouquet from Kobi’s Hugs & Kisses. Then cut them using coordinating dies. After that I cut square background and frame using Dotted Patterns: Nested Squares | Creative Dies


Background I toned with blue distress inks and pink inks by Altenew. Next I applied Floral Trimmings stamps on vellum using white embossing and cut it to size of square background; stuck them together.



Next I stuck Kobi and bouquet on the right of square frame and put it all on foam tape. After that I cut rectangular background from white cardstock and stuck the square with vellum upon it. Covered it by frame with Kobi. 



It remains only to make sentiment. On black cardstock using white embossing I stamped sentiment from And the Fox Says set, stuck it to the card and decorate with Clear Round Drops – Mix


Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hello, everyone. Natalia is here. Today I would like to show floral card with Blooming Bunch stamp, colored with pencils.

 

 

First of all I took the frame from Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames | Creative Dies and cut the workpiece from grey card-stock. Then I took Altenew beige color inks and, using Misti, stamped Blooming Bunch on the workpiece in no line coloring technique. Using alcohol markers Copic Sketch I colored flowers and leaves. After it I took colored pencils Faber Castell Polychromos and started to draw on flowers and leaves to add them volume (flowers – 187, 283; leaves – 172, 165). Added some glare with white pencil Prismacolor premier.
 
 
 

 

Then, covered painting with the mask, I sprinkled with Wink Of Stella brushes – clean and white.

 

 

 

 

 

On black cardstock using white embossing I stamped sentiment from Happy set. Stuck the bar with sentiment on the strip of vellum and placed it on card. Then I decorate the composition with sequins from Majestic Fusion set and drops from Clear Round Drops – Mix.

You are MERMAZING

You are MERMAZING
Hello, everyone. I finally unpacked my prize for #mftsuperstar and started to use some of sets (did you pity to unpack new stamps too? It’s so white and smells wonderfully 😍). 
 
 
 
And today I want to participate so much in @mftstamps sketch challenge
 
 
 
 (I hope that I’m not late) with my mermaid. It’s a big joy to color mermaids, because you can draw them rainbow hair (don’t wait blue-green colored skin as in tales, sorry, I choose healthy color of face) and scale of unusual shade.
 
 
 
And it inspires a lot

December 2017 Release Day 2: Blooming Bunch

I have always loved cards with flowers. Once I started to make cards with characters, but I still missing flowers. When I got new set I was so excited and started make card enthusiastically.
 
 
 
I made a lot of different options, but this one is the best IMHO. After I’ve colored couple of workpieces I knew, what to do next – I’ll cut them off. 
 
 
 
I toned the background with Altenew inks, cut the window for shaker using Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames die, filled it with sequins from the new relise. 
 
 
 
I stuck the bud above and made the sentiment using hot embossing on acetate

2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with Studio Katia

Hello Coffee Lovers 

We are so excited to be a part of Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop. Today we also start the countdown for the new release and as we are one of the Sponsors we wanted to share a few cards that use some our new Sweet Latte Stamp Set + Scripted Coffee Creative Die


This Stamp Set will be available for purchase this Friday December 15th, 2017.


Coffee is my favorite theme. I love coffee by all heart that’s why this card was easy to me. I used the frame die from Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames set to cut the workpiece. Stamped the elements from new set Sweet Latte using Memento inks and colored everything with alcohol markers – Touch Twin and Copic Sketch. Cut all necessary elements using coordinating dies.


Then I toned the workpiece with Crisp Dye Inks by Altenew – mint and orange. Next I took new die from Dotted Patterns – Loops and cut the place for shaker. I gave the volume to workpiece using cardboard and filled shaker with Pink Winter, Magic Mint, Iridescent Magnolia, 3MM Majestic Sequins, Majestic Fusion and Clear Dust.

Stuck the sheet of transparent plastic above and the cover of card. Using white embossing powder and Watermark Stamp Pad I stamped “Sweet many thanks” sentiment and cut on a contour with scissors. Then stuck all the elements on frame and in the middle I place the sentiment using washy tape. Such a simple card it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

STUDIO KATIA Interactive autumn card

Hello, everyone. Natalia is here and today I would like to show Autumn interactive card with foxes and pumpkins.



First I started to color with Touch Twin and Copic markers all the main heroes: foxes, which I stamped with the “Foxes” set, pumpkins with “Meowy Halloween” set and fur-trees from “Winter Kobi” set, using Memento inks. According to color palette of characters I got, I toned two pages with Distress inks with prevailing of yellow and pink colors. Then I used the die from “Dotted Patterns: Scallop Frame” set to cut of the frame and through window for shaker.




The most interesting part started – positioning. First my goal was to put characters so, that 1st and 2nd pages look self-sufficient separately or together. Here the leafs from “Together we bloom” set helped me a lot, they wonderfully completed the composition.



Now I want to tell about my shaker with Wow-effect.


The similar construction I’ve made once, but now the difficulty was in a lack of place for shaker. First I wanted to put leafs there, thinking it would be cool they to fall when I remove the plug, but then I realized that they can stuck in there. So I hung leafs on golden strings and fill the shaker with Gold Dust Seed Beads and Silver Dust Seed BeadsCrystal Rainbow FusionCrystal Clear Fusion.
 On the photo below I intentionally didn’t cover “technical process” to show how this construction works (not difficult, actually).


If you would like to review my work closely – see the video.

Hello everyone!
Today I happy to announce you the most interesting event of April from Altenew – Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop.



Spring is a good time to enjoy the life in its bloom and also to remember those, who gave us this life – our dear and beloved parents. They gave us care and attention, love and inspiration. So now it’s our turn to let them know how we love them and appreciate everything they do for us. Here we will try to express all this feelings in our cards. Join us in this Blog Hop and you will get a lot of positive emotions, warm feelings, happy smiles which you can share with your dearest parents, because this are the most important things in the world.




This Blog Hope has its goal to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. 20% of the profits earned from Best Dad, Best Mom, Penned Rose stamp sets by 6/18/2017 will be donated to Food Bank in Central New York to support seniors in need. So lets support together the people who really need attention and send our cards, inspired by this Blog Hop, to them. For more details visit Altenew’s 2017 Celebrating Parents Card Drive.

To make our Hop more interesting and exciting there will be some amazing prizes.

Winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the blogs listed below and will be announced on the Altenew blog on May 2nd, 2017.

Second – there will be two winners among those who left comments under my post. The one I will choose in my blog will get $30 gift certificate from Altenew, and the one I will choose in my Instagramm will get my interactive card with warmest wishes. I will choose winners with my heart and announce them by May 1st.


So, lets hop together by the blogs starting from Altenew and down the list you will find below and have fun.


And now, let me entroduce you my cards.

When I knew what kind of stamp set (Best Dad) will be the main in this Blog Hop, I realized that I will make interactive slider card and nothing else. But the thing that I couldn’t decide was how to decorate the front page. I considered a lot of options and spoiled a lot of paper before I found the suitable look. It’s the mirror frame and the imitation of bath tile around it. I am satisfied with my work because of its brevity and … interactivity)))

Here is the video of my card to show how it all works.


The second card, made with Extra Special and Wild Hibiscus stamp sets, came easy to me, like the flight of spring butterflies, that pictured on it.



Hope you have enjoyed watching. Now hop to the next blog. Bye-bye.
