{Studio Katia Video} 3rd Birthday Blog Hop + Shop Discount + Giveaways!

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***
The winner of a $25 gift certificate to the Studio Katia shop is Carol Mayne. Please email studiokatiagiveaway@gmail.com with the subject line "Emily Leiphart YouTube Winner" to claim your prize!


Hello, I'm thrilled to be joining Studio Katia for its 3rd Birthday Blog Hop with giveaways! Today is Day 1 of a two-day celebration and you should've arrived from Isha Gupta's blog.


We're celebrating with a blog hop, new release, shop discount and lots of giveaways! The new release includes 5 new stamp sets, 1 set of coordinating dies, 1 new stand-alone die, 2 new stencils and lots of new embellishments.



All stops will have a giveaway and some will occur on blogs, while others will occur social media channels such as InstagramFacebook and YouTube (like mine!) so be sure to read carefully and enter where applicable for multiple chances to win!


This post is photo-heavy so if you want to skip the photos and watch the video, that is perfectly fine! I made three quick and easy cards using six of the new release products. The first card features the Party Balloons StencilIt's Your Birthday Stamp Set and Pastel Rainbow Confetti sequin mix.


I stencilled all the balloons using four distress ink colours, heat embossed the sentiment with sparkle embossing powder and adhered Pastel Rainbow Confetti and Clear Drops Mix Two with Studio Katia Glue.


I was inspired by the colours in the Pastel Rainbow Confetti sequin mix so I used similar colours to sponge the balloons and then of course the sequins matched. It's practically a party on a card!


While I love my first card, the second one is my favourite of the three because it features Kobi the Bear who's a favourite of mine in terms of stamp set characters. I'm so happy to have another Kobi for my collection!


On this card, I used all of the images and a sentiment from the Kobi Makes a Wish Stamp Set and Kobi Makes a Wish Dies, as well as the confetti from It's Your Birthday. Of course, I coordinated the confetti and Copic colouring with the colours from the first card.


To frame my scene, I used the largest die from the Dot Patterns Mix 1 Die Set and used it to dry emboss the panel in my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine.


For my third and final card, I used the Shaker Balloon Die with the Pastel Rainbow Confetti and sentiments from It's Your Birthday.


I used the negative space for the shaker and the positive pieces, cut from glitter cardstock, to frame the shaker and double up on balloons for an ultra festive card.


I second-generation-stamped the best wishes sentiment in the confetti colours to balance the colour in the shaker.


I added balloon strings with cord in coordinating colours and held them in place at the knot with glue dots and secured to the card with multi-medium matte.
