Studio Katia September 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome!! I am so excited to be part of the Studio Katia September 2018 release blog hop. Today is the Day 2 of this two day celebration!



You should have come here from my sweet and talented friend Amy Kolling's blog. If not start at the beginning at Studio Katia's blog. 
This is my first time playing with their products and I simply love them all. I have 3 cards for you today. 

I started by creating my sky using Memento Summer Sky ink and a Gelli plate. I then embossed the tiny snowflake cluster using WOW! opaque embossing powder. I then stamped some more snowflake cluster using the same memento ink.
Now, I stamped the images using Memento Black ink and colored them using Copic Markers. I die-cut all the images using Holiday Village Coordinating dies. I die-cut this mat layer using the Dotted Patterns Set 3 Creative dies and adhered this layer to the cardbase. I now adhered the images to create a scene. To finish I added the Clear Round drops  and some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.





I simply adore this stamp set so couldn't keep it back after one card...lol. I stamped and die-cut the images using Holiday Village stamp set and Holiday Village Coordinating dies. I colored these using copic markers. I then created a wash onto the cardbase using Distress Ink Salty Ocean. Now to create the front panel, I used the oval die from Studio Katia Dotted Patterns Set 3 Creative dies. I created the scene onto the cardbase and adhered the front panel using 3D foam. To finish I applied some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard for some shimmer.






To start, I stamped the Poinsettia Trimmings clear stamp set repeatedly using Hero Arts Unicorn ink. I then stamped the image onto a white cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I then adhered double sided adhesive sheet onto it. Added LawnFawn Prisma glitter to it fussy cut this image. I then adhered it onto the panel using 3D foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment and finished the card by adhering some of the Holiday Cheer ConfettiMidnight Blue Crystals.



All the glitter looks so pretty with this beautiful image.

Love your cards Isha, they are so gorgeous. The cards with the Village stamps set is awesome and the card with the Poinsettia stamps set ( what is one of my favorites)is stunning. Because of the way you have made the poinsettas on the background, the colored poinsettias pop up beautifully. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous cards.

Your Holiday Village cards are adorable, that's a fun set. Your Poinsettia Trimmings is stunning! I love the white stamped on Kraft and the color and sparkle of the Poinsettias really pop.

Isha, I can tell you are a sparkle gal! Your poinsettias are stunning! So much life in them. And I am so excited to see your Christmas village take! I was drawn to both of the previous mentioned sets and I am so glad that you showcased them here. The middle card reminds me of the snowglobes you could get as a kid and shake them up and the snow falls. Great cards!!!
