Sunny Studio - Spring Window Card

Hello everyone! I am on Sunny Studio blog today with a fun card featuring the new Wonderful Windows dies. I paired these with a few older and new products. For this card I decided to not add the sentiment as we all need some general cards in our stock.

I started by adhering the blue pattern paper from the Spring Fever paper pack to a white card base. Next, I die-cut the windows using white card. Adhere vellum behind the window panel. Stamp the images, color and die-cut using the coordinating dies.

Twig, bird - Little Birdie Stamps and Dies

Tulip cluster, bees, catterpillar - Garden Critters Stamps and Dies

Bunnies, tulips - Bunnyville Stamps and Dies

Mountain, trees - Country Scenes Stamps and Dies

Die-cut the fence using the Picket Fence Dies. Now die-cut the grass from the Flirty Flowers paper pack using the grass die.

Color the pot we die-cut from the Wonderful Windows dies and adhere the tulip cluster behind this.

Assemble everything together. Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day!

Studio Katia - Foiled Hi Card

Hello everyone! Today I am on Studio Katia blog sharing a mixed media card using the new "HI" hot foil plate along with some of the previous released products.

I started by adding some inks to the gelli plate and took the print onto white card stock. Stamp the fressia using pink ink onto this piece. Next add embossing paste through the Autumn Leaves stencil. Let this piece dry.

Stamp the butterflies onto vellum, die-cut using the coordinating dies. I then used the "HI" hotplate and foiled using aura foil by spellbinders. Die-cut this using the HI word die. Die-cut the hi using pink and teal cardstock. Adhere the pink onto the teal word and then add the foiled hi on the top, keeping the layers slight offset for a shadow effect.

Add some splatters using black and gold watercolor. Adhere the word and the butterflies. To finish, I added some sequins from the Summer Fusion collection. The supplies are all listed below. Thanks for dropping by!

Sunny Studio - Thinking of You Card

Hello everyone! I am on the Sunny Studio blog with a mixed media card as my designer's choice feature today. I love creating layers while still keeping it one layer. So I used various stamps and dies, even used the dies as stencils.

I started by creating the background panel by adding some inks to the gelli plate. Take the print onto a white card. I then stamped the butterflies from the Watering Can stamp, using the pink ink. Die-cut the leaves from the Spring Greenery dies, use these as a stencil to sponge some leaves onto the panel. Flick some black watercolor.

Stamp the butterflies from the Watering Can stamp, add touch of color using copic markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies. Add spectrum noir clear sparkle pen. die-cut leaves from the Summer Greenery dies, thrice from the white card and also vellum. Die-cut the oval from the Scalloped Oval mat 3 dies, die-cut the word hugs in the center. Sponge some pink ink to the edges.

Die-cut the speech bubble from pink and yellow card using the Comic Strip Speech Bubbles dies, adhere the yellow to the pink slightly offset. Stamp the sentiment. Adhere the panel to the white card and adhere all the elements to it. I used 3d foam on some for added dimension.

Thank you for dropping by and have a nice day!

Altenew Celebrating Watercolors Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

Hello and welcome to the Celebrating Watercolors blog hop by Altenew. I love this theme as you all know my love for coloring, especially watercolors.

You should have come here from Ishani Sai's blog

I've used Altenew Artists' watercolors 24 pan set for my projects and these are just so versatile and GORGEOUS.

For the first card I decided to use the pretty Whispy Feathers layered feathers dies along with the Artists watercolor, Tartan stamp, Label Love stamp and the Delicate Mandala die.

for this next card, I used the Magnolia Ballerina stamp and dies, I stamped the image onto watercolor paper using white embossing powder, added multiple colors from the Artists watercolor palette. Die-cut and adhere to a white cardbase.

card 3: I applied some distress oxide inks to the gelli plate, smoothen it using a brayer and took a print onto white cardstock. I then sponged Altenew crisp ink through the broken Cheverons Stencil. Deboss this panel using the Dotted Swirls Debossing cover die. Die-cut two pieces of the Lace die. Adhere to the panel. Die-cut all the elements of the Magnolia flower and leaves from watercolor paper. Add color using the Artists watercolor. Adhere to the card

I used the outline image of the Build-A-Flower Narcissus, stamped it with versamark ink and embossed using white embossing powder. Color using Artists watercolors. Stamp the leaf cluster using any light ink, color over it using the artists watercolor, die-cut and create the floral cluster.

for the next card, I was trying out the watercolors and simply painted some freehand florals and leaves onto Arches cold press watercolor paper. I used the sentiment from the Incredible stamp set.
Once the image was dry, I flicked some black splatters and stamped the sentiment. 
Since, I enjoyed the freehand watercoloring process, I made the next card a bit easier. I stamped the Watercolor Halftone floral cluster onto arches cold press watercolor paper panel using Altenew Rose
Quartz ink. Now I had a shape ready for me to play with the watercolors. I used the watercolors to color the image.
I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Incredible stamp set using silver embossing powder.

For the last card, I went with no-line coloring technique. I love this technique in all the coloring mediums. First I created a background watercolor wash in muted colors. I then stamped the florals from the Garden Treasure stamp set and the leaves from the Leaf Clusters stamp set using Antique Linen distress ink onto Fabriano Artistico hot press watercolor paper.
I find this ink to be perfect for my kind of coloring. I colored in all the images and die-cut them. Once everything was ready, I simply created the cluster and adhered them to the mat layer.
