Studio Katia Winter 2019 Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Studio Katia Winter release blog hop!
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!




You should have arrived from Kaja Vezenšek's blog and Ilda Dias is your next stop. If you get lost you can find the full hop list below or visit Studio Katia Blog!

For my card, I decided to use the stencil and highlight this GORGEOUS glitter from the new release.


I started by sponging some inks to a piece of white cardstock using the new blending brushes....I HAVE to tell you they are amazing. Perfect size and that the brush head is white so it's easy to see the colors on them. The soft bristles make it super easy to blend seamless.
I then placed the stencil on top and sponged some more inks. I then took a little transluscent embossing paste, mixed some sparkle glitter to it and applied a thin coating of this. Let this dry.


Now, I die-cut the window using the new cover die and adhered the center hexagon to its place on the cardbase. I then adhered vellum from behind to the mat layer and adhered it to the cardbase. I die-cut the word "Merry" 4 times and stacked them together. Adhered it to the panel. stamped the word Christmas and adhered the stripe. This card looks really pretty in real life. Full of sparkle.

Heffy Doodle: Marvellous Day!

Hello everyone, today I am sharing a pretty floral card on Heffy Doodle blog using the Blooming Marvellous stamp set from the new release. I am sharing how to color the solid stamps using faux watercoloring and the no-line coloring technique.



To start, I smooched tumbled glass distress ink to the Pinstripe stencil, spritz with water and put it onto a watercolor paper (onk side down). Remove the stencil and we get this light texture effect. Let it dry and die-cut it using the Ovally Excited die.

I then stamped the florals and single leaves using antique linen distress ink onto watercolor paper. I added color to them using faber-castell and Zig clean color real brush pens and a aqua brush.

For the leaves twig, I inked them using various shades of distress inks, spritz water about 2 -3 times from a distance and stamped it onto watercolor paper. Once everything is dry, I die-cut them using the Blooming Marvellous dies.

Adhere the oval to a white cardbase and stamp the sentiment. Stamp and emboss the word Marvellous using Passion Fruit Embossing Glitter by WOW! and die-cut it. Adhere the florals and the leaves to create a cluster of your linking.


To finish, I added some black splatters and nuvo drops. Have a wonderful day!
