Good morning! I'm happy this morning to be joining in a on Day 2 of the HUGE Hop for Studio Katia's 2nd Anniversary Celebration and Release! You should have arrived here from Ilina Crouse - and your next stop is Tracy Freeman. If you get lost, the entire blog hop line-up is at the bottom of this post. You can check out the entire new release HERE!
I actually ended up with a total of FOUR cards to share with you today! Totally wasn't planning on doing that many, but just kind of worked out that way with all the new release goodies I got in my package. So be prepared for lots of photos - you've been warned! :)
My first card uses the gorgeous new Lovely Floral Stamp set - such a gorgeous floral image - and so fun to watercolor! I used my Daniel Smith watercolors to color in the vibrant blooms, then added a splatter of white paint over the top for extra texture.
I added a sentiment from Birthday Greetings, trimmed the panel slightly smaller than my white A2 cardbase before attaching it, so it left a slight border.
Second card uses the same Lovely Blooms stamp set - but this time with colored pencils! It is equally fun to color this way!
This time, I stamped it on kraft cardstock with a soft colored ink, then slowly colored in with my Chameleon Double Ended Colored Pencils. This was perfect for me to take with my on the go (actually, I took this one AND the previously watercolored one with my to my parents house and colored them there). Once I arrived home, I restamped the image (since I left it in my MISTI after the first stamping) with clear embossing ink, and heat embossed with gold.
I trimmed it down, matted with black cardstock, then added a heat embossed sentiment from Birthday Greetings on a thin strip of black cardstock. Finished off with a sprinkling of Nuvo Drops around the image in similar vibrant tones.
Next up, I paired up the Kobi Bearing Gifts, Bubbles Stencil, and Birthday Greetings for a simple birthday card - LOVE that sentiment!
I started off by blending Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink using the Bubbles Stencil over white cardstock and my new Ranger Blending Brushes (LOVE them). I then stamped Kobi Bearing Gifts, colored to blend with my background, and cut out with the coordinating dies.
Finished off by stamping my sentiment, mounting the image with foam adhesive, and then mounting the entire thing on a Sea Glass cardbase.
And finally...a shaker card featuring the Scallop Window Dies!
For this one, I chose some fun pattern paper from a Crate Paper 6x6 pad, and die cut the Scallop Window Die from the center. See that thin strip of white? The die cuts that as well, so I fit that back into the window to add a bit of a frame as I built my shaker.
I filled it with Sparkling Butterfly Chunky Glitter and added a sentiment, again from Birthday Greetings, stamped in a coordinating color. Mounted the entire thing on some new Peacock Cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.
