Summer Time Sunny Studio and Studio Katia Collaboration Blog Hop


Both teams are celebrating Summer Time with fun and colorful shaker cards using stamps from Sunny Studio and dies and embellishments from Studio Katia. There are prizes and a special sale too! Both companies have a prize to give away too, so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

Hello everyone! If you're coming from Svitlana's blog, you are in the right place. For this special collaboration blog hop, I'm sharing a card that features the Magical Mermaid stamp set from Sunny Studio, Dotted Patterns Set 1 creative dies, and Crystal Rainbow Sequins Fusion from Studio Katia.


To begin, I borrowed a balloon stamp from Sunny Studio's Oceans of Joy and used a masking technique to stamp a bouquet of balloons on smooth white cardstock. After, I stamped the mermaids on the same cardstock and colored all the images with Copic markers. I then fussy cut them out. 

To create the background panel and the shaker window frame, I trimmed smooth Bristol cardstock to 11" x 8-1/2". I did this in order to keep the ombre of colors the same for the background, the window frame, and the matching tag. I distressed the cardstock with a combination of Distress Inks and Distress Oxides in the following order: Faded Jeans, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio. To add texture, I splattered water and let it dry.


Then, I took the distressed cardstock and trimmed it in half to create two A2 size cardstocks and die-cut the first one with the largest die from Dotted Patterns Set 1. I used that to create the background. I adhered the die-cut border and rectangle onto an A2 size card base (if you don't want the stitched detailing on the background, you can skip the die-cutting and just adhere the distressed cardstock). Next, I stamped the small fish stamps from Oceans of Joy onto the inside of the rectangle panel (see picture) with Mermaid Lagoon ink to make it more interesting.

To create the shaker window, I die-cut the second cardstock and just used the stitched rectangle. Then, I die-cut that with the second largest die from Dotted Patterns Set 1. This gave me the frame for the shaker window, as well the negative cut that I used to make a matching tag. I trimmed the acetate that will go behind the frame, and heat embossed the sentiment "Swimming By To Say Happy Birthday." After, I added two layers of foam tape behind the frame and mounted it to the background after adding some Crystal Rainbow Sequins Fusion. To finish, I added silver strings behind the balloons, and adhered all the elements to the front.



As I mentioned before, I used the negative cut to make a matching tag. I stamped the small fish, and heat embossed the sentiment. Lastly, I adhered the mermaid.
