VIDEO | Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

Hello there, I am delighted to be taking part in Studio Katia's 2nd Birthday Celebration Blog Hop today. They have released a wonderful new collection of stamps, dies, stencils and embellishments. To celebrate both the release and the anniversary, there is a two day hop going on today and tomorrow.  If you are following along in the hop, you should have arrived here from the amazing Rubeena. I have more details on the hop below :)
 

I am using the gorgeous new Lovely Blooms stamp set today, along with the new Birthday Greetings set. I started off by stamping the floral image from the Lovely Blooms set on to TH watercolour paper. I stamped it with Versamark Ink and then applied detail white embossing powder. This was then heat set. The image was coloured using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section).
 
 
The panel was then die cut using the largest frame from the Dotted Patterns Scallop Frame Die collection. This was added to a white A2 card base with foam sheet and DST. I took one of the sentiments from the Birthday Greeting stamp set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied the same detail white embossing powder and heat set. This was then cut in to a strip using a craft knife and metal ruler. It was added to the card with clear foam tape. To finish off, I added a sprinkling of clear gems from the new Spring Gems collection, which is a free gift with purchase this month.

Here is the video showing how I made the card:
