Heat Embossing over Alcohol Marker Colored Images | Studio Katia Winter 2019 Relase Blog Hop and Giveaways!


Hi everyone and welcome to a super fun blog hop to celebrate the Studio Katia Winter 2019 Release! 
This release includes 6 New Clear Stamp Sets and 4 Sets of Coordinating Dies, 4 New Stand Alone Creative Dies, 3 New Stencils and 2 New Glitter Jars and is now available for purchase on the Studio Katia store! 


For my card today I used the new Poinsettia Border stamp set and the Half Striped Cover Dies. I went for a traditional Christmas palette, with some gold heat embossing for some extra bling. There is a video at the end of this post, that will show you the step by step process for the creation of this elegant Christmas card.


The images and the sentiment I used today are all part of the Poinsettia Border stamp set. I colored my flowers using my Illustrator Markers by Spectrum Noir and for the heat embossing I used Wow! Rich Gold Metallic powder.


The base panel is some watercolor cardstock by Crafter's Companion that I die cut with the Darling Ribbon and Frames dies. I blended my Harmony Water Reactive inks over the edges using my Studio Katia Blending Brushes for some added interest. I used Misty Morning and Baby Blue, and I also spritzed my background with some water to create a distressed look.


The black panel was die cut with the Half Striped Cover Dies and glued on the white cardstock base with some Studio Katia Glue. I adhered the Poinsettia border and the sentiment strip to my card base and added a few Gold Foil Pearls for an extra touch of gold.


And that's my card for today! As I mentioned, there is a video tutorial for you, showing how to create this elegant Christmas card with the Studio Katia Poinsettia Border stamp set. You can watch it down below or directly on my YouTube channel.
