Studio Katia 2nd anniversary blog hop & GIVEAWAY

Hi there,
it's time for the blog hop celebrating Studio Katia new release and 2nd birthday! This release includes 6 new clear stamp sets and 4 coordinating dies, 4 new stand alone Creative Dies, 2 stencils and new embellishments! :)
Živjo!
Čas še za blog hop ob praznovanju nove izdaje Studio Katia štampiljk in šablon. Tokratna izdaja vsebuje kar 6 novih setov štampiljk in pripadajočih rezalnih šablon, 4 nove posamezne rezalne šablone, 2 plastični šabloni in pa kar nekaj novih dodatkov za dekoracijo! :)


This is a first card I have prepared for today:

To je prva čestitka, ki sem jo pripravila za danes:



I was super excited when I saw that Studio Katia is coming out with stitching die, so this card was the first I made with the new release. I colored the animals using alcohol markers and put them on top of my stitching so it looks like the stitching is water. I finished the card off with the sentiment that reads 'may your birthday be as awesome as you are!' :)
Ko sem videla, da bo Studio Katia izdal šablone za šivanje sem bila presrečna saj sem res želela preskusiti to tehniko in to je prva čestitka, ki sem jo naredila z novo izdajo. Morske živali sem pobarvala z alkoholnimi flomastri in jih prilepila na sešito ozadje, tako da šivanje izgleda kot morje. Čestitko sem dokončala z odtisom napisa, ki pravi 'naj bo tvoj rojstni dan tako super kot si ti!' :)

The second card:
Še druga čestitka:

This card looks easier to make, but it took as much time as the first one. First, I ink blended three colors on my paper and die cut them with the new Halftone die. It took quite some time to put the little circles back in it's place, but it was worth it since I love this background. Next, I added a shell and a mermaid holding a gift in the center of the card, along with fun sentiment at the bottom.
Ta čestitka sicer zgleda nekoliko lažja, ampak je vseeno vzela kar veliko časa. Najprej sem bel papir posenčila s tremi barvami, nato pa sem uporabila novo šablono s krogi in jih izrezala. Vzelo mi je kar nekaj časa, da sem izrezke prilepila nazaj na njihovo mesto, ampak je bilo vredno truda, sej se mi zdi ozadje res prečudovito. Na koncu sem dodala še izrezek školjke, morsko deklico z darilom in pa še zabaven rojstno dnevni napis.

  92. I like how you made the stitching detail look like an ocean. Most of the time I see this type of stitching, it is all rainbow and frankly that gets boring. I am so glad that you changed it up for us and showed us a different twist! Your shell card with the mermaid is lovely. I like how you made the shell with the vellum. Is it also a shaker card too? I could not tell. It is different and I like that! Both cards are just wonderful and thank you for sharing your inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
