Christmas Window Card feat Studio Katia Winter Kobi

studio-katia-winter-kobi-window-card

Hello everyone! Today I am back on the Studio Katia blog with a clean window card I made with the Winter Kobi and the Origami Winter stamp sets. I really think this little character is adorable, and I was super happy to see him in a winter outfit ;)
To start off my card I stamped the Kobi image on some Canson XL watercolor cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I colored it with Derwent Inktense pencils, and die cut it with the coordinating dies.
I then cut my card base and the window front from some more watercolor cardstock, using the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames and the Creative Stitched Window die sets.

For the inside of the window I created a masked scene. I colored the trees with Inktense Pencils and embossed the snowflakes with white embossing powder. I then did some ink blending on the sky and the snow hill using Distress Inks ink in Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. I coated the back of the window with acetate and used several layers of cardstock to give it dimension.
I stamped the sentiment from the Origami Winter stamp set using Memento ink in London Fog, and added a ribbon to the top of the window. I die cut it using the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames Creative Dies set and colored with Derwent Inktense pencils.

Holiday 2017 Card Making Series - Card and Coordinating Tag feat C.C. Designs - Spotlight on the Tag

Christmas-Tag-CC-Designs-Robertos-Rascal-Snowmen-Kids

Hello everyone! Today I am back with a card I made with a super cute digi by C.C. Designs. I also created a card which matches with this tag - you can read about it here
For this tag I printed one of the images from the Roberto’s Rascals Snowmen Kids set on some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with my Canon Pixma printer. I also printed the same exact image on some re-positionable packaging labels, as this would allow me to create masks later on.
First off, I cut my tag using the I used the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Tag You’re It set. I then colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and masked it off before moving on to the background. I blended Distress Oxides in Faded Jeans and Black Soot on the sky. For the snowy hill and the snowfall I used Lawn Fawn Yeti white pigment ink together with two stencils by My Favorite Things: the Drifts and Hills stencil, and the Snowfall stencil.
I then cut another tag, also from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, and adhered it to the back of the one I had colored. As a final step I threaded some white and green bakers twin through the eyelet of the tag. If you want a deeper insight in the card making process, I created a video for you guys. If you are interested you can watch it below! And don't forget to let me know what you think about it!




And that’s it for today! If you haven't yet, you can check out the coordinating card by visiting this post! Here's a look at how this set looks

Holiday 2017 Card Making Series - Card and Coordinating Tag feat C.C. Designs - Spotlight on the Card



Christmas-card-CC-Designs-Robertos-Rascal-Snowmen-Kids

Hello everyone! Today I am back with a card I made using some adorable stamps by C.C. Designs, as well as the fourth video in my Holiday 2017 Card Making series on YouTube. I also made a tag which coordinates with this card, you can see it and watch the video tutorial at this link. I think having matching cards and tags for your Christmas presents is a great idea, and a way to make your gifts even more unique! Consider yourselves warned, though: this is definitely not a project aimed towards mass production, it is rather something for one of those special people in your life. :)
But let’s move on to the card and tag making process. To begin with, I printed the images from the Roberto’s Rascals Snowmen Kids set on some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with my Canon Pixma printer. These images are also available as rubber stamps, but I decided to work with the digital version, because I was really eager to start creating with these cute images! I also printed the images on some repositionable packaging labels, so that I would be able to create masks later on.
For this project I decided to combine Prismacolor pencils and Distress Oxides: they look perfect together, especially when used on kraft cardstock! 
After having printed my little scene, I trimmed down the card panel to 4.25” by 5.25”, and I did some coloring with my Prismacolor pencils. I then masked the images and moved on to the background. For the sky I used Distress Oxides in Faded Jeans and Black Soot, and for the hill and the snow I used Yeti white pigment ink by Lawn Fawn. I used two stencils by My Favorite Things: the Drifts and Hills stencil, and the Snowfall stencil. I created an additional mask for the hill by tracing the stencil on my masking paper and cut the shape with my scissors.
For the sentiment on my card I used Distress Oxide in Faded Jeans and the Clearly Besotted Stamps Tiny Type stamp set.
I then adhered two strips of Neenah Desert Storm on the sides of the card because I wanted some of the kraft cardstock to show. I also cut another tag, also from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, and adhered it to the back of the one I had colored. 
If you want a deeper insight in the card making process, I created a video for you guys, that you can watch down below!  And don’t forget to let me know what you think about it!



And that’s it for today! I really hope you liked the card and enjoyed the video! If so you might want to check out how I made the coordinating tag by clicking on this link!

Holiday Card Making Series 2017 - Sweet Christmas Scene feat Lawn Fawn


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a super sweet Christmas card I made using a bunch of stamps by Lawn Fawn, as well as their new Knit Picky 6x6” paper pad.
I stamped images from different stamp sets on some Neenah Solar White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink and I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers. I used the add-on die to the Sprinkled with Joy stamp set to cut the oven, and backed the oven glass window with some vellum paper. 
For my background I chose three different designs from the Lawn Fawn Knit Picky 6x6” paper pad. 
For the frame I cut one of the sheets to 4.25x5.5” and used a die by Studio Katia to obtain the frame itself. 
The gray background is also cut to 4.25x5.5”, and for the floor in my little scene I used a strio of red patterned paper from the same collection.
I stamped my sentiment using my MISTI and some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink as well as some Memento Ink in Love Letter. I then went ahead and adhered all the elements to the card base, popping up the frame and some of the images with a layer of foam tape. 
And the fun part of this card is that, thanks to the add-on die I used, the oven door opens and closes, revealing the cookie tray inside. Here is how it looks when it’s closed 


And here is how it looks with the door open:



Isn’t it super fun?

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Studio Katia


Hello everyone! Today I am really excited to be back on the blog with a tag trio I made for Tracey McNeely’s 25 days of Christmas Tags as part of the Studio Katia design team! How great is that?
For my tags today I used images from the Friends of Winter stamp set. I stamped them on some Windsor and Newton Drawing paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored them with Prismacolor pencils, and cut them with the coordinating dies.


For the tags I cut some Windsor and Newton Cotman watercolor cardstock using both dies in the Dottet Shaker Tag 2 set. I wanted to go for an inlaid die cut look, and I decided to leave the outside panel white, and to do some emboss resist on the inside one.


I heat embossed three different sentiments from the Friends of Winter stamp set with silver embossing powder, and did some ink blending using Distress Inks. I used Candied Apple for the elf tag, Mermaid Lagoon for the Santa tag, and Mowed Lawn for the Rudolph tag. I threaded some twine through the eyelet of the tags, and, for an additional fun touch, I added some red jingle bells! 



And that’s it for today! I really hope you enjoyed the post, and I hope you like these inlaid die cut tags! You can check Tracey’s post for all the info about the 25 days of Christmas tags, and how you can participate for your chance to win prizes from all the great sponsors!
I will be back soon with another fun project, and in the meantime I wish you all a great day!

Vintage Christmas Tag Trio with Studio Katia

vintage-christmas-tag-trio-with-distress-inks-and-studio-katia


Hello everyone! Today I am on the Studio Katia blog, and for day 3 of our Theme Week I wanted to show you some cute, vintage Christmas tags I made using the Sweet Holiday stamp set.
To begin with, I stamped my images on some Canson XL watercolor cardstock and did some no-line watercoloring with Distress Inks. I painted the images as I normally would, and, to give the images a vintage feel, I added a wash of Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. I then die cut them with the coordinating dies.

For the tag bases I used the Dotted Shaker Tag 2 Creative Dies to die cut some more watercolor cardstock, and created three different scenes for my images. I used Distress Inks and a stencil to create the sky and some snow banks. For the snow I used Tumbled Glass, and for the sky I used Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Broken China. I added some water splashes to the sky in order to convey the feeling of falling snow. As a final step I blended some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo over the whole card base to give it an aged look. I used a heavier hand towards the edges of the card, and added just a light coat on the center.

I then stamped three different sentiments from the Sweet Holiday stamp set using some white pigment ink. The white pigment ink gives a softer look compared to white embossing powder, which I thought matches very nicely the feel of these tags. I sponged some Vintage Photo over my bakers twine and I threaded it through the eyelet at the top of the tags.

Holiday 2017 Card Making Series - Simple Holiday Card with Distress Inks and Nuvo Mousses


Hello everyone! Today I am back with the second card for my Holiday 2017 card making series! If you follow me on Instagram or on Facebook, you'll have already seen this card - I finally got around to editing and uploading the video tutorial, so I am here to share it with you today!
The card per se is pretty simple: some ink blending and some playing around with Nuvo mousses, but I think the result is really beautiful!
For my card base I blended Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch on some Canson XL watercolor cardstock, and I added some water splashes. Once the background was dry I took a stencil by Craftin Desert Divas and I used in combination with my Nuvo Mousse in Powder Blue. I used a spatula to lay down the Nuvo Mousse on my card, and I left it to air dry.
For the die cut sentiment I did some more ink blending using the same colors of  Distress Inks on a separate piece of watercolor cardstock, and I used one of the dies in the Craftin Desert Divas Wishing set to cut out the word "wishing". I used the second die in the set to cut the outline from some white glitter cardstock.
I stamped the second part of the sentiment, from the Craftin Desert Divas Sending Sentiments stamp set, on some white cardstock. I cut the top of this white panel with the outline die in the Craftin Desert Divas Wishing to obtain and inlaid die cut look, and I glued it to my card base.
I then used the stencil and blended some Shaded Lilac on the sentiment panel, so that the snowflake design looks continuous across the card.
As a last step I glued the die cut word using some liquid glue
If you are curious to see the whole card making process, you can watch the video below. And don't forget to let me know what you think about it! 




And that's it for today's post! I really hope you liked the card and enjoyed the video! I will be back soon for another fun project, and in the meantime I wish you all a great day
