Now this post is going to be a long one as I have 5 different projects for you along with a video tutorial on how to make a shaker card using the Layered Stars Dies, so grab your favorite drink, sit/ relax and enjoy :)
All the supplies I used for these projects are listed at the end of my post.

For my card below, I used the new Layered Stars Die along with the Kind Confetti Stamp and the GORGEOUS patterned papers from the Celestial paper Pack. All the details are in the video for this card :)

Watch the video for the details. You can watch on YouTube HERE


For my 2nd card, I used the new Dainty Blooms Cover Die along with the sentiment from A Walk In the Woods stamp. I decided to foil this pretty die using the Opal foil from Thermoweb. I die-cut the cover die and then applied Deco foil transfer gel to it. Let it dry, I then put the foil on this and ran it through the laminator.


I created a background for this die-cut panel using various distress oxide inks. I have the colors in the supply list below :) To finish, I added the pretty sequins by Studio Katia.

For the 3rd card, I used the new Delicate Mandala Die, Virginia Rose 3D Die along with the Signature Words Die. I started by die cutting the mandala using a thin cardstock and used it as a mask in the center of the panel. added some Salty Ocean distress ink using packaging technique. I then removed this mask, dried it and adhered to the corners of my panel. I die-cut the flowers and the leaves. I colored them using the Color Burst powders by Ken Oliver (the colors are in the list below)

 I have an older video on how to use the powders HERE on YouTube.


I embossed the last layer of the flower using Sparkle Gold embossing powder. I then flicked some black and gold splatters. I die-cut the word Hello using yellow and black cardstock, layered them a bit offset. Adhere everything to the cardbase. To finish I added these pretty sequins by Studio Katia.


I was having too much fun playing with these new dies so for my 4th and 5th card, I used the new Delicate Mandala Die along with the Super Script Stamp and Die, Leaf Clusters Stamp set. I played with my Gelli Plate and some Acrylic paints by Fun Stampers Journey.

 For this card I die-cut a mask using the mandala die and used it as mask. I used the Candy apple paint by FSJ and some Gold paint by Aquatec Studio


 I die-cut the word Hugs from Gold foil cardstock and added some gold gems to finish the card.


For this card, I used the Cool Pool, Beach Ball, Whip Cream, Candy Apple paints by FSJ and some gold paint. Let me know if you would like me to make a video of the technique.
I used the Heart Beat ink to stamp the word Friend.


I finished the card with some gold thread and some iridescent gems.

Hello and welcome to Studio Katia 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop! We are celebrating with a Blog Hop and a New Release. This Release includes 5 new Clear Stamp Sets and 1 set of Coordinating Dies, 1 new Stand Alone Creative Die, 2 new Stencils and lots of new Embellishments!

Today, I created this fun shaker card using the Shaker Balloon Die, It's Your Birthday stamp and Party Balloons Stencil. I also used the Speckled Sprinkles for the shaker.

I started by creating the background using the stencil, I masked them individually to create a multicolor balloons. It's so much fun and easy. I then stamped the confetti using Delicata Gold ink. I die-cut the balloon on the stenciled layer and adhere vellum behind it. I then adhered the die-cut balloon to the white cardbase. put some speckles and adhere the stenciled layer. I apply scor-tape around the balloon die-cut so that the shaker material doesn't spread everywhere.



Stamp and emboss the sentiment using white embossing powder. to finish adhere the bow. I colored the bow using the same Delicata gold ink we used for stamping.

Now this post is going to be a long one as I have 4 different projects for you along with a video tutorial on how to emboss using multi-color embossing powders and color using pigment powders, so grab your favorite drink, sit/ relax and enjoy :)

All the supplies I used are listed to the end of my post. 

For this card, I used the Pen Sketch Mandala stamp, Super Script stamp and die, Rose Gold, Platinum and Copper Embossing powders.  


Watch the video for the details. You can watch on YouTube HERE.




For the next card I used the Peaceful Reverie stamp and dies, Leaf Clusters stamp and dies along with the Frilly Frame Die from the new release.
            


I started by sponging some pink and orange inks to a piece of white cardstock and then stamp the 2nd. layer of the flower using versamark ink. Emboss using WOW! Opaque White embossing powder. I then stamp the flower center using StazOn black ink. Die-cut the flowers. I stamped the leaves using Sweet Leaf and Evergreen inks, die-cut them. I then stamped some more leaves for the must have Leaf Clusters stamp and die-cut them. I added some shading using Faber Castell Polychromos pencil colors.


Add some color to the background. Adhere the frame and build the floral cluster. To finish, I added some iridescent gems by Studio Katia.

For my 2nd. card, I did some tone on tone stamping, stamping the image using multiple ink colors and made a focal image. I used the Leaf Clusters stamp and dies, Sunflower Daisy Stamp, Frilly Frame die and A Walk in the Woods stamp.


I started by stamping the woodgrain stamp onto black cardbase using versamark ink for a tone on tone effect (You can see the texture in the close-up). I then die-cut the frilly die and applied some Wink of Stella clear sparkle pen to it. For the next step having a stamp position tool helps, I used the Misti. I stamp one of the leaf cluster using Aqualicious, Parrot, Maple Yellow, Orange Cream and Coral Bliss inks. Now stamp the image using versamark and emboss using clear embossing powder. Die-cut the leaf.


Assemble everything together.

My 3rd. card is a tall mixed media card. I used lots of stamp, dies, stencils for all the texture and depth. I used Sunflower Daisy Stamp and die, Leaf Clusters Stamp and Die, A Walk in the Wood Stamp, Broken Chevrons and Sketched Lines Stencils. I also used Pink Pearl, Coral Berry, Sweet Leaf, Evening Gray, Parrot and Moss inks, Altenew Embossing paste.


To start, I added a color wash using Squeezed Lemonade and Abandoned Coral distress inks. I then stamped the woodgrain to parts of the panel. I then sponged some ink through the chevron stencil in a few places. Finally, I applied embossing paste through the sketched lines stencil.
Stamp the 4th layer of the sunflower to the background. On another piece of white cardstock, stamp the images. I embossed the last layer of the layering stamps using Rose Gold embossing powder.


Die-cut the images and adhere to the mat layer. Emboss the edges of the layer and adhere it to the cardbase.
