Good morning! This month we’re collaborating with Studio Katia and some of her fabulous design team members have decided to play along with us! First up is Anna Kossakovskaya with a stunning duo of cards for the Bling it Up theme! Here’s a sneak peek at one card but I hope you’ll head over to Anna’s blog and check out both cards!!
I hope you all had a nice weekend ? This month we are collaborating with the lovely Studio Katia for our Bling It up Challenge. If you haven’t checked out her amazing products I highly recommend them…especially if you are a total sucker for sequins and embellishments.
Those who know me know I often go for softer tones, mainly watercoloring but for this card I wanted to go full on rainbow.
I used the beautiful Brush Strokes stamp set from Studio Katia along with my Hero Arts Shadow Inks and Clarity Stencil brushes (If you haven’t tried these yet then I HIGHLY encourage you too, especially with Hero Arts inks).
I stamped the brush heart from the stamp set randomly onto some card stock using clear ink and then heat embossed using Hero Arts White Embossing powder.
Then using a selection of Hero Arts Inks (all are listed in the supplies below) I created a rainbow effect going down the page. With the brushes you build the colour up so it was perfect for this effect.
Once this was dry I buffed over the heat embossing using a cloth and using two circle dies I taped them together and die cut a circle section out of the cars stock off to one side, I discarded the small inner section so I would be left with a frame around the circle.
I heat embossed I Miss You sentiment onto some vellum using Hero Arts Embossing powder and adhered this to the circle.
I then adhered everything onto a light grey card base, the circle piece I popped up using some foam tape. And the perfect finishing touch was some of the beautiful Crystal Sequins from Studio Katia.
That is it from me today. I do hope you have an amazing week and get plenty of crafty time.
Thanks for stopping by.
Coralynn here with a card for our current challenge with our March sponsor, Studio Katia. The theme this month is Bling It Up and it isn’t hard to do with all the wonderful embellishments that she has in her shop.
I started out stamping the flower image all over the panel from the Thank you So much set with white Hero Arts white embossing power and heat set it.
I then took the ombre ink light purple to grape juice and blended it more on one side than the other to give the panel an ombre look. I then took the beautiful dotted frame die and cut out the middle and to switch things up and turned it around 180 degrees and glued it to the panel through the opening.
I took the outside panel and added it to the card base with foam tape and to finish off the card and added a ton of sequins to “Bling it Up”!
I really like how this turned out and I hope you do too. Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon!!
Hello, happy Friday! Kelly here with my card for my March solo post using products from Studio Katia and Hero Arts. Thank you to Studio Katia for collaborating with us, please check out their products here.
When planning my card I knew I wanted to use the Hero Arts Star Confetti Die and the fun Studio Katia Birthday Lions stamp set. For some inspiration I googled images of lions and stars and some of the images from the Lion King movie came up that were perfect. I stamped the lion and gift and colored them with Copic markers then fussy cut the images. The Hero Arts Star Confetti die I cut from navy card stock and than adhered a piece of yellow card stock behind it. Once I adhered all my card stock layers, fussy cut images and sentiment to a card base I used a fine tip glue bottle to put small drops of glue in the stars and used tweezers to help place the sequins and beads (from Studio Katia). I coated the die cut “happy” with Glossy Accents to help it stand out from the background. When I showed this card to my daughter she commented that it must of took a long time to glue on the sequins and beads. I actually the adhering the beads and sequins relaxing, I put on some music, enjoyed some quiet time for myself in my craft room and it didn’t take long at all.
I hope you join our challenge which begins Monday March 6.
It’s Donna here to share with you my project using Hero Arts products and Studio Katia. I am so excited to be the first to tell you that we’re collaborating with Studio Katia for the month of March. I have to admit, I have never heard of Studio Katia, but I must tell you her stamps are so cute and very easy to work with!!! She also has some fabulous embellishments and sequins. Be sure to go check her store and blog out to see all the wonderful things she has to offer.
Here is my project for today!
Closer look of the images and these cute clear round drops
I am in love with this newly released stamp set by Studio Katia called Hello Alice. The set has two sentiments and I love the script. I cut the images out and colored them with copics. I am also using the newly released stamp set by Hero Arts called Woof. Talking about cute! This stamp set has several dogs and several sentiments. This is definitely a go to set that everyone needs in their stash! I used two of the puppies and also colored them with copics. I used some distress ink on the top layer for my background and added the images with foam tape. I finished the card off by adding several of the newly released Studio Katia Clear Round drops.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my card. Thank you Studio Katia for collaborating with A Blog Named Hero! I hope you all will come back again soon to see some more wonderful creations by the Design Team. Also, you will want to come back on Monday, March 6 to join a new Challenge for the month of March.
