Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop + Giveaway

10:00:00 PM


Hello and welcome to the Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2! You should have arrived from Crystal Thompson 's blog, or if you get lost you can find the full hop list below or visit Studio Katia Blog.

Studio Katia is celebrating this Anniversary with a New Release. Their May 2018 release includes 6 new Clear Stamp Sets and 4 sets of Coordinating Dies, 4 new stand alone Creative Dies, 2 new Stencils and new Embellishments. And I bet you'll be in love with them as much as I was!

Ok, it's time to get to my card. I tried alcohol marker coloring on the Yupo paper for my first time in today's card.


To start, I stamped images from Studio Katia Under The Sea Stamp Set and Mermaid For Each Other Stamp Set with copic friendly black ink. I colored them with copic and other alcohol markers and cut them with coordinating dies.

After die cutting the images, I applied white gel pen and Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to some of them. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew and Bubblegum Blush where I wanted them as well.


I pulled out new-to-me Yupo paper from Ranger and drew wavy lines using alcohol maker's broad nips. I then spritzed ethanol using a mister on it and added small dots using markers while the panel was still wet. It made unique texture for my background and I love how it turned out.

I created cover panel using Studio Katia Dotted Patterns: Darling Ribbon Dies. I popped it up on an A2 sized white card base using foam tape. I also mounted all elements as shown in the picture using foam adhesive and glue tape. 


I also adhered newly released embellishments. I used Studio Katia Spring Gems and April Crystals. Aren't they so beautiful?



To finish, I white heat embossed the sentiment from Studio Katia Under The Sea Stamp Set.
