Heat Embossing + Watercoloring - Thank You Card feat Studio Katia


Hi everyone! Today I am back to show you a card I created as part of the Studio Katia team for the November Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.


For today's card I used the A Cup of Thanks stamp as a focal point, and for the background I used the Floral Trimmings set. 



I heat embossed the main image with WOW! Gold Rich Embossing Powder and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I used a waterbrush to blend the markers, and the watercolor paper I used is the Windsor and Newton Cotman Watercolor cardstock.



For the background I used the Floral Trimmings stamp set, which I heat embossed on the same watercolor cardstock using WOW! embossing powder in the color Oyster - a new favorite of mine! I used the Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames dies to cut the panel to an A2 size. I used the same die set to cut out the central element, and I did some ink blending on the edges of both die cuts with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.


For the sentiment I used the thanks die  in the coordinating dies to the A Cup of Thanks set. I heat embossed a scrap piece of cardstock twice with the WOW! Rich Gold embossing powder, and die cut the sentiment. I also layered it on top of a second die cut, in order to create dimension. 




I mounted everything on a top-folding A2 card base and that finished off my card!
And that's it for today! I really hope you liked today's project, and I hope I inspired you to create with the Studio Katia A Cup of Thanks stamp set!
Thank you all so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

Quick and Easy Christmas Card feat SugarPea Designs


Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share a fun Christmas card I created with the Merry Makers stamp set for my DT Feature post on the SugarPea Designs blog

For the base of my card I used papers from the Spots & Stripes Brights paper pad. I first die cut the green one with the Postage Stamp Sugar Cut, and then cut three circular openings with the Zig Zag Stitched Circles. 
I added a stitched detail to the red paper by running it through my die cutting machine with the Card Front Element Builder. 


I colored the three cute elves from the Merry Makers Stamp set with Spectrum Noir Markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I raised the green panel over a layer of foam tape and glued down my images as well. 


For the sentiment I did some heat embossing with white embossing powder over some black cardstock, and then I moved on to the finishing touches.


I added glitter to the Christmas lights, to the ribbon on the gift, and to the candy cane with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen. I also added highlights and some dots on the gift with a white Gelly Roll pen. 


For some extra shine and dimension I coated the Christmas lights and the candy cane with some Glossy Accents, and that finished off my card.


And that's it for today! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and I hope I inspired you to create with the fun Merry Makers stamp set! 
Thank you all so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

Winter Scene feat MFT Warm and Feathered Hugs + GIVEAWAY!


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a super exciting post, as I am having a giveaway on my YouTube channel sponsored by My Favorite Things! I will tell you more about it later, but for now let's have a look at what I created for this super special occasion!

I thought for a while what kind of project I wanted to make, and then I decided to go for my favorite: a scene card. To make things more interesting I also decided to create a coordinating tag, which is something I really love to do!


The stamp set I used today is the new Warm and Feathered Hugs set, designed by the amazing Stacey Yacula! It was one of my favorite sets from the amazing November release, and I just had to use this one on today's project!
The owls are stamped in My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. For the trees I did some stamping with Distress Oxide in Pumice Stone. All the images are die cut with the coordinating dies.
I have also prepared a color chart for your reference, where I listed all the markers I used.


For the background I cut some Bristol Smooth cardstock using the scalloped rectangle die in the Blueprints 27 Die-Namics, and did some ink blending with Distress Oxides and my Ranger Blending Brushes. I used Worn Lipstick, Dusty Concord, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire.
Once my inks were completely dry I heat embossed the snowflakes in the Warm and Feathered Hugs stamp set with white embossing powder. I also used a white Gelly Roll Pen to add more falling snow.



To create my hills I die cut some more Bristol Smooth cardstock with the same scalloped rectangle die from the Blueprints 27 Die-Namics as well as the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-Namics. I did some more ink blending with Distress Oxides and the Ranger Blending Brushes. For a cool, frosty look I used Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac.



I stamped one of the sentiments from the Warm and Feathered Hugs set on green cardstock, and I die cut a banner around it with another die from the Blueprints 27 Die-Namics - such a versatile set!


I glued my scene on an A2 base that I cut out of one of the papers from the MFT Petite Plaid 6x6 paper pad, and mounted everything on a top folding A2 card base. 
And that finished my card. 


For my tag I used the new Fold Up Tags Die-Namics. This is such a fun set to create interactive tags for your gifts, or even to create elements for your cards! 
I die cut the base out of the same patterned paper that I used on my card, and the front out of some white cardstock. 


I used the remaining owl for the front of the tag, and I decided to add the sentiment on the inside. 
I did some partial stamping with one of the sentiments in the Warm and Feathered Hugs stamp set, and used again the banner die from the Blueprints 27 Die-Namics to create a banner for my sentiment. I did some repeated die-cutting so that I would get a small enough die cut, and adhered everything together.


I added a green reinforcer around the eyelet on the tag, and threaded some light blue embroidery floss through it. 


And I find it really fun that the recipient can lift the tag front to reveal the sentiment on the inside! 



As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I created a video to show you how I made today's winter card and tag set. My Favorite Things was so generous not only to send me some goodies to play with, but they are also offering a 25$ gift certificate to one lucky winner! I explain all the details on how you can enter the giveaway in my video!






And that's it for today! I really hope you guys enjoyed this post and the video! A big thank you to My Favorite Things for inviting me to guest design for them during the month of  November, and for donating a prize for today's giveaway!
I will be back soon with another fun project, and, in the meantime, I wish you all a great day!

Edit: the giveaway is now closed and the winner is Nunzia Carusio! Nunzia, please send your email address to abitofmycrafts@gmail.com so we can arrange for you to receive your prize!
Thanks a lot to everyone who participate and congrats to Nunzia!
