Studio Katia--1st Birthday Celebration / Shaker Card

SK Shaker2 

Hello!  I am helping Studio Katia celebrate turning ONE!!  I have been a follower of Studio Katia for a while and was so tickled to be asked to help them celebrate this milestone!  Congrats Katia!

You should have arrived from Laurie C.'s blog HERE.  If not, the full blog hop list can be found over on the Studio Katia blog HERE.  Your next stop is the amazing Anna Kossakovskaya!


The theme of the celebration is SHAKER cards!  Shakers are so fun to make and receive......any age loves an interactive card!  I personally love to say, "shake, shake, shake" when I make one!

I started with making my shaker card using the Dotted Shaker Tag.  I added in a sequin mix called Crystal Rainbow Fusion for my shaker element.  Next I went to work white heat embossing images from Together We Bloom onto Bristol Smooth Watercolor paper.  

SK Shaker


The images were then colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  The colors just blend beautiful on this paper......no water needed!  For my sentiment, I added a black glitter die cut "thank you".  ♥♥

My second card uses Copics to add color to white heat embossed images.  I used RV14, RV25, and RV19 to color in the flower, from Thank You so Much, on the back portion of the vellum image.  I love the results!!  My vellum was layered behind a light blue panel that had the opening of the flower die cut in the center.  Another black glitter "thank you" was added to the front and some Crystal Clear Fusion sequins were scattered.

Gail Plaskiewicz said...

Everyone on this hop made a shaker card, at least as far as I've gotten with you. Was that a requirement or did everyone just want to make shaker cards? I love shaker cards so I'm not complaining I'm just wondering. Usually everyone on a hop doesn't make the same thing. Your shaker card is so beautiful! Yellow is my favorite color and that yellow orange flower makes me smile THIS BIG! LOL I love all the colorist that card as they go so well together. Your second card is also a pretty color but I like the other one better. I love that stamp and when I win, I think that is the one I want to get. Happy anniversary Studio Katia and many, many more. Thanks for letting us win something. Off to the next stop on the hop!
