Studio Katia: You're Wonderful!

Hello everyone! Isha here sharing a CAS mixed media card using a variety of products!



I started by die-cutting a white mat layer. Now, I applied Embossing paste through the stencil and sprinkled some chunky confetti glitter. Let it dry.

I then die-cut the heart, applied versamark and embossed it using embossing powder and adhered a piece of vellum behind it. Stamp the sentiment onto the vellum.

I stamped and embossed some leaves onto vellum and adhered them behind the heart. Adhere the heart to the mat layer.



stamp part of the sentiment onto black stripe and adhere it using 3D foam. Adhere this to the mat layer and then the layer to the card base.

Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome everyone! I am super delighted and honored to be a part of the May 2019 Stamp/Die/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop over at Altenew.

You are going to love the various products with variety of styles. Check out all the May Release products HERE

You should have come here from the talented Sandra Dietrich's blog if not start at the Altenew Blog so you won't miss anything!



Here is the full release view, simply click on it to check on Altenew shop.


Now, this post is going to be a long one as I have 5 different projects for you so grab your favorite drink, sit/ relax and enjoy :)

For the first card I used Basic Blooms, A Walk in the Wood stamps, Dotted Swirl Debossing cover die from the new release along with the Super Script stamp and die. I also used Altenew Pinkalicious, Pink Pearl, Fresh Lemon, Cotton Candy, and Pure Graphite crisp inks.

Other than this I used WOW! Gold Embossing powder, Hero Arts White Pigment ink.



I stamped the A Walk in the Wood background using white pigment ink to a white cardstock. I then stamped the Basic Blooms florals using various inks. This gives a subtle texture. The to add more texture I used the Dotted Swirl Debossing cover die for that extra effect.



I stamped and embossed the word celebrate and die-cut it using the coordinating die. To finish, I added some sequins from Studio Katia.

For my 2nd. card I used the Everlasting Happiness stamp, Dotted Swirl Debossing cover die from the new release along with the Signature Word Dies.



I used the Dotted Swirl Debossing cover die onto a white panel and then sponged Altenew Pinkalicious, Aqualicious and Fresh Lemon crisp inks, I then stamped and embossed the floral cluster using white embossing powder onto vellum. Colored using Copic markers and adhered to the panel.



I die-cut the word Thanks using black and white cardstock and stacked them together. To finish, I added some Gems from Studio Katia.

For the 3rd. card I simply wanted to highlight the Everlasting Happiness stamp.



I stamped the image onto vellum and colored it using Faber Castell Polychromos and Caran D'Ache Luminance pencil colors. I stamped and embossed the sentiment using WOW! Gold embossing powder.



To finish, I added some Confetti by Studio Katia.

For the 4th. card, I used the GORGEOUS new layering stamp Delicate Clusters and the Delicate Clusters die along with the pretty patterned paper from Celestial Paper Pack



I didn't use the stems from this Delicate Clusters florals, I simply used the floral heads, stamped them in rainbow colors using the Shades of Purple, Cherry Blossom, Sweet Dreams, Green Meadows, Pocketful Of Sunshine and Warm & Cozy Crisp inks. These inks are made perfectly for your layering requirements. No need to think and match the colors :)



I wanted to turn it into a shaker card, so I stamped the sentiment onto velum and created a window in the pretty Celestial patterned paper, which looks like a galaxy. I used some stars and confetti by Studio Katia for the shaker element.

For my last project, I made a art journal page using the Basic Blooms Mask Stencil (they are awesome), Ombré Alpha, A Walk in the Wood stamp. The Ombré Alpha is perfect size to create the words and sentiment you want and I love the effect. Basic Blooms Mask Stencil made it so easy to apply the texture paste through the stencil and at the same time, I could mask the flower to overlap them.

I recently bought this spiral book as it allows me to make single spreads which I love making. I write Quotes or sentiments depending on my mood.



The A Walk in the Wood stamp gave a perfect subtle texture for the page :)

You’re the Best Interactive Card: Heffy Doodle

Hello everyone, today, I have a fun interactive card on Heffy Doodle Blog using some adorable stamps and dies along with Chibitronics.


 
I used images from Dinky Dinos, Dino Time, Hootiful, Whatcha Sayin', Prehistoric Pals stamp sets along with the coordinating dies. I also used the Grassy Lass Border die and Swirly Clouds dies.

I started by stamping and coloring the images using copic markers. Die-cut them. I die-cut the grass and sponged them using distress inks. Now, I die-cut the clouds.

Onto a white mat layer, I placed the elements and marked where I wanted my switch and lights. I then made a circuit with the help of Chibitronics booklet instructions.

On the mat layer, I sponged a bit of blue sky. Die-cut the speech bubble, adhered vellum from behind and stamped the sentiment. I cut the inside of the tree trunk too and adhered vellum behind it.



Assemble everything together. I wrote PRESS on one of the stones as that is where my switch is. When you press the switch the magic happens and the lights light up :)



I have a small video to see it in action too. Here is the link to the video.
 

Hope you enjoyed the card. Happy crafting!
