Studio Katia December 2017 Release Blog Hop!!

Hello, friends!!  I'm super excited to be a part of the December 2017 Release from Studio Katia!!  We are celebrating with a Blog Hop full of inspiration using these latest products!  Keep reading for all the giveaway details!!


This release is absolutely amazing! From florals to coffee to of course, Kobi!!! Everything was created to work together in this release, which I love!  I created two projects for you today to show you how well everything can work together.

Ever since Kobi the Bear made his debut, I was smitten with him.  So let's introduce ourselves to the new Kobi's Hugs & Kisses and the Best Ever Stamps  and Co-ordinating Dies!!


Isn't he adorable!?  There are so many images in this set that Kobi can hold on to, as the dies provide the cutting lines to tuck things under his arms.  I used the "best" and "ever" dies as well as the "mom" sentiment from the Best Ever sets to create my sentiment.  To finish off, I used the brand new Cupid's Kiss Crystals Mix for a light sprinkling of colour and sparkle.


I wanted to show you one more card just to demonstrate how well these new stamps and dies work together!!


Here, Kobi is holding an iced beverage!  That sweet little image as well as the sentiment is from the new Sweet Latte Stamp Set which also has Co-Ordinating Dies!!  For the background, I used the new and super cool Dotted Loops Die.  I used the negative portion (because I had that left over from another project) as a stencil.  I simply laid it over a panel cut using the Dotted Patterns Set 1 die set and lightly sponged some blue ink to create some ombre circles.


The embellishments on this card are also new!!  The Mint Dream Crystals are beautiful! Now, on to the giveaways!! 

 Make sure you leave a comment on the Studio Katia Blog for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate, there will be 2 to give away!! You can also increase your chances of winning by following Studio Katia on Instagram and "liking" them on Facebook!!

  30. Oo, what a smart idea to use the dots die cut as a stencil. That adds some really fun interest to the background. And I like that you didn't limit yourself to brown bears; the contrast between the two is fun. Also, great tip about mother's day. I should probably start thinking about that and my mom's birthday! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!
