Studio Katia May 2018 Blog Hop + Giveaway





Hi everyone! Today I am back with an exciting post full of wonders, as Studio Katia is turning two! We are celebrating this Anniversary with a New Release. The May 2018 release includes 6 new Clear Stamp Sets and 4 sets of Coordinating Dies, 4 new stand alone Creative Dies, 2 new Stencils and new Embellishments!

To celebrate Studio Katia is giving away TWO $100 CAD Gift Certificates every day of the Blog Hop! That’s FOUR chances to win. The winners will be chosen randomly from comments left on ALL blogs of our Blog Hop.

On top of that Studio Katia has been even more kind and is sponsoring a 20$ giveaway on my Instagram profile! How awesome is that? You will find all the info about the hop and the giveaways at the end of this post, but for now I wanted to show you the card I created for the hop.



I used the mermaid and merman from the new Mermaid for Each Othet stamp set, which I colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. 
I created the seashell with the Seashell Shaker die and Nuvo Mousse in Lilac Lavender.
For the background I used Distress Oxides in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. I then applied Ranger Texture Paste over the Brush Stroke Waves stencil to create waves on my background. I die cut the panel using the Dotted Patterns - Scalloped Frames dies.


For the sentiment I used the banner die in the Best Ever coordinating die set and I blended some Nuvo Mousse in Mother of Pearl to add color and shimmer to it. I then stamped the sentiment from the stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I cut some textured blue cardstock with the Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames Creative Dies, popped up my sea background over it with some craft foam, and adhered the rest of the elements in place. 


And that’s my card for today.
And now onto the giveaways!
Studio Katia is giving away two 100$ gift certificates to two lucky winners that will be picked among all the comments left on all the blogs in the hop! Visit the Studio Katia blog for more information on how to enter the giveaway.*
