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!


MY CARD TODAY

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.
