Paws for Kindness Blog Hop with Studio Katia


Hey there! I’m so thrilled to participate in the Paws for Kindness Blog Hop!


Studio Katia has the newest exclusive stamp set and coordinating die bundle featuring specifically designed to celebrate the World Kindness Day.  


Studio Katia will donate $10 from every sale of this special stamp bundle to Pets in the Classroom, because we truly believe that all children should have the opportunity to learn about the responsibilities, respect for life and being kind to one another.  
Sentiments and words included in this set: 

- BEST, FRIENDS, KINDNESS, HUGS, XOXO, YOU 

- sending, your way, with 

- is in our hearts 

- light up the world 
- be silly be yourself be kind 
- will always be remembered 
- are like stars, you don't always see them, but you know they're there 


My project today features a girl sitting in a small house in an embrace with her favorite Pets. 
I stamped the images in black hybrid ink and colored with copic markers. Then, the images were die cut using their coordinating dies. 





I wanted to create a little pets house so I die cut the Middle Window from the SCALLOP SQUARE die set out of kraft card stock. Then, I used little hearts and stars dies to add a beautiful carved finish on the house. On a separate piece of white card stock, I used my house die cut piece to make the ink blending bottom layer. 

The last step was to make the background. I did blending through the new LOVE FOR PAWS STENCIL. And next I blended it all with dak pink ink. Next I die cut the frame using beautiful SCALLOP FRAMES die. 


The scene is now set, and now I can add friends to the card. I added them into the squares with foam tape. Aren’t they adorable? To decorate the card I used LEMON BURST PEARLS and RIPE PERSIMMON PEARLS.

REVERSE CONFETTI NOVEMBER RELEASE BLOG HOP AND 25 days of Christmas Tags


Hi crafty friends! It’s time for the Reverse Confetti November Release Blog Hop


Also I am happy to announce that we are collaborating with Tracey McNeely and her team for her annual 25 days of Christmas Tags.  I'll be sharing my tags using some of the new goodies with you in just a moment. 




Our new release is fabulous!




 I love pulling together all my sets to find new combinations to use them, and today I decided to bring out all the little cute guys!


My favorite set from this release is Birdie Buddies. So I stamped the images in a black hybrid ink and colored them up with copic markers. I die cut the images out with the Birdie Buddies Confetti Cuts.


For my layout, I framed it overhand with the foliage, also stamped two of them in black hybrid ink and colored with copic markers. I die cut these out with their coordinating dies.
I created a cloud ink blended background with Baby Blue and Island Blue Dye Inks and also die cut a curved snowy hill out of white glitter card stock.
For the front layer, I used Neenah Desert Storm card stock. I trimmed a small piece for the top, and a larger piece for the bottom. And then I embossed the panels using new Snow Stars Cover Panel Confetti Cuts. I deliberately did not want to cut the details completely, just give the texture to the background. On the lower panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Candles stamp set. I love the large font. 

With all the pieces ready, I can now finally assemble it al together, with the mini scene built and the branches and front panel framing it, and the sentiment right below. Whew! That was a lot!

And here you can see my Christmas tags.



I wanted to do something special, a non-standard form. 


So as a basis for tags I used a stamp in the form of a lemonade stand from the Lemonade Stand stamp setBut I transformed it into a new year's stand. 


For my tags I used new Birdie Buddies and Huggable stamp sets. As always I prepared all the details, colored the images with my Copic markers. 


I added all the images and the sentiments to the tag base with foam tape. I made the basis for the tags in the form of a card, so you can write a small wish inside. I cut it out with a coordinating die to the lemonade stand in a partial die cutting technique.

REVERSE CONFETTI NOVEMBER RELEASE WEEK DAY 3

Welcome back to Day 3 of the Reverse Confetti November Release Week




So today we're featuring the new 
THANK YOU stamp set 


with Coordinating Confetti Cuts die



Earlier, we showed you a beautiful THE BEST DAYS stamp set! So I had such a great time creating this card with these products and excited to be sharing them with you today.


I started with piece of the Premier Polar White Cardstock. I stamped flowers in black ink using masking paper to make a flower borderI did it from above and below. When I covered all my images I blended the entire background with the Baby Blue Dye Ink


After my panel was done, I removed the masks and colored all the flowers with Copic markers and sprinkled it all with watercolor.
I created a very simple background using a pattern paper from the new WINTER WONDER 6*6 paper pad. For the rest of the layout, I used a kraft paper for interest. 

Next I made the sentiment using new Thank You Coordinating Die. This is a 2 piece die set that cuts out the words separately and also features a layering/matting die. And the second part of the sentiment I stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed in white onto Dark Roast Cardstock. I added the sentiments to the card with foam tape.
