I'm thrilled to-the-moon-and-back (on Cloud 9 still!) to be a guest designer for Studio Katia's 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 celebrations! Studio Katia has just released 6 new Clear Stamp Sets and 4 sets of Coordinating Dies, 4 new stand alone Creative Dies, 2 new Stencils and new Embellishments. Yesterday's hop was filled with outstanding inspiration by stellar designers and today...more, more and more!
You should have arrived here from talented, enthusiastic Simon Hurley who, at only 15 years old, is already a crafting phenom! Lovely, creative Laurie Case is next on the hop, with cards that always dazzle and delight. You can find the full hop list below or visit the Studio Katia blog.
As you can imagine, I'm ever sooooo nervous being in the midst of all the AWE-mazing designers joining in the celebration! Hope my little offerings will make you smile....
This releases sees a newcomer to the Kobi family – Kobi Bearing Gifts – illustrated by Zlatina Goncheva. His tagline reads that he's a 'year round' cutie...and I agree 110%! I've created a quartet of cards featuring Kobi as the star of the stage, with the theme of 'seasons' (more or less) threading through my Copic colour selections.
Card 1: Welcome a 'Spring-ish' Kobi, "bearing" an assortment of pink, blue and purple gifts, along with a shaker-filled balloon. How fun is that background, created by another new product: the Bubbles Creative Stencil. With variations in the bubbles' sizes, fanning out from teensy in the center (Kobi's hiding those *grin*) to larger around the edges, this stencil has possibilities galore...
Card 2: Summer brings thoughts of hot weather, gentle breezes, fluffy clouds sailing through blue skies and, of course, rainbows! Here, 'Summer' Kobi is bringing an assortment of rainbow coloured gifts to the party. He's set atop an embossed version of the Bubbles stencil and paired with a sentiment from Birthday Greetings. The sentiments are a charming assortment of birthday wishes...including some for our crafty friends!
May Crystals - for the fill.
As you can tell, I had an absolute blast playing with Kobi and some of the other new products! Thank you, Katia and your Design Team, for inviting me to 'play cards' with you for this celebration! To everyone who drops in: thank you immensely for your comments. Studio Katia's awesome products did all the work here; I just coloured, inked and glued!
Time to send you off to hop, hop, hop!
