Studio Katia 2nd Birthday Celebration, Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hi stampers!
Happy Saturday! I am excited to be partaking in Studio Katia's Birthday Celebration and new release blog hop today! It's a two day blog hop and today is day #2!!!

You should have arrived from Jessica's blog and your next stop is Heather. You don't want to miss any of their crafty creations, trust me!!

The 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!


For my card today I used the new Lovely Blooms set along with Birthday Greetings and Halftone Dots Cover die.

To make the card you will need to start by stamping the image on white card stock using Extreme Black ink. Use Copic markers and Faber Castell Polychromos to color the image, then cut it out.
Cut the background die from white card stock measuring 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" then adhere to black side folding note card. Adhere the image using dimensional tape.

Next, you will want to stamp the sentiment using Versamark onto black card stock and emboss with white embossing powder. Usually I stamp it on a panel towards the top edge and trim it after I have embossed it.

Hero Arts: Always Here for You

Hi stampers!
As I promised I am back again today with some crafty goodness. I have this sweet card for you today using the new Hero Arts set Fennec the Fox

And before I go into details how I made this card, you may want to check out the Memorial Day Crafty sales HERE

To make the card, you will start by stamping the images on white card stock and then color with Copic markers. Once done, cut them out either by hand or using the coordinating dies.
Next, you will want to grab an ink blending tool (or 3) and do some ink blending onto panel of white card stock using the following ink pads: Just Rust, Orange Soda and Butter Bar. Add some dots using white gel and white paint pens.
Using your Just Rust ink pad ink a thin strip of white card stock to get a custom color ;)
Assemble your card onto Black Folded note card and add some Champagne sequins to finish it off.
But, you still need a sentiment. Using versamark ink stamp the sentiment onto strip of black layering paper and emboss with Detailed  White embossing powder. Adhere onto your card and you are done.

Hi Stampers! 
Welcome to Day #3 of the Catherine Pooler's new release! The new Wild and Wonderful release is now LIVE in Catherine Pooler’s online store. This release consists of couple new inks, new stamp sets (with available coordinating dies),  two background stamps, and two stand alone butterfly dies.
Since there are so many new items, check out What’s New section in Catherine’s store to find the new items this release. 
You should have arrived here from Melissa's blog, but if you didn’t, you can find the whole blog hop list at the bottom of this post.

PRIZES: To celebrate the new release Catherine is so awesome and 5 random winners chosen to receive two free ink pads (and free shipping!)  Announced Friday, May 25.

All supplies and overview of the release are at the bottom of this post!

For the first card today, I used the Wonderful Wildflower set, along with the Kaleidoscope background stamp. To make the card, you will want to start by stamping the images from the set on white card stock using the Midnight ink pad. Once stamped color them with Copic markers or any other alcohol based markers of choice. Cut them out, then using black brush pen, such as Copic go over the edges to mask off the white card stock, so it would blend nicely with the black background. Set them aside.
For the background, stamp the image onto Midnight card stock with Versamark and emboss with White embossing powder. Trim down to 4" x 5 1/4".
Die cut the Hello die from white card stock and fun foam, adhere them together and apply shimmer pen. Assemble your card and you're done :)

For my second card today I used two sets: Focus on the Good and Note of Thanks. To make the card you will want to start by stamping the images from the set on white card stock using Midnight ink, next you will stamp the 2nd step images using the following inks: Limoncello, Be mine, All that jazz, Lime rickey. Die cut them using the coordinating dies. Set them aside.
Make a top folding note card using Premium white card stock and trim the bottom of the front side. Adhere Black Tie Gala paper on the back. Next, you can stamp the sentiment using Midnight ink, adhere the flowers and leaves and you are done ;)

Hello Card 

Thanks Card 

Impression Obsession Challenge - Send a little humor

Hi stampers!
It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time around it's "Send a little humor" I used the My Brain stamp for my card to add a little humor. 
Before stamping the sentiment you'll want to make your watercolor wash background, once completely dry stamp the sentiment using Versamark ink and emboss with white embossing powder. 
Ass pearls and adhere using fun foam onto white note card!
