Hello and welcome to Studio Katia release blog hop. You probably came from Valentyna, if not – yo may consider to start from Studio Katia blogunnamedToday a have a Dreaming of Pink Christmas shaker card made using Pink Winter stamp set . This is my first pink holiday card ever. And my first flamingos card. Not speaking of flamingos holiday card. And the pinkest card I ever made. Pink isn’t much my color, and when I think of pink I mostly imagine it’s a girl cards. But it was fun to make. I probably underestimated pink and flamingos on Christmas cards 😉

I created a shaker scene with three flamingos, that are decorating their place for Christmas. Or I should say two are decorating. One is hanging stockings, another put up some Christmas lights, and is untangling the rest. And the third one, wearing antlers, does nothing, just checking on them waiting to start celebrating. He’s like asking – are we there yet?Pink Christmas shaker card. Stamps and sequins from Studio Katia. Card by @s_shayevichTo make this card first I stamped flamingos onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. MFT Electric Red COPICs-friendly inks were used here for stamping. I could stamp them in black, but for this card I wanted to have as less black as possible. Or I should rather say – as less non-pink (or white, or red) as possible.

I have a few MFT hybrid inks for purposes like this. Cannot say they’re good for regular stamping (rather not at all), soon never wanted to have the whole collection of them. But I did purchased several most used colors to use with COPICs.

This set has one “naked” flamingo and lots of add-ons, to put on it or use next to it. Like a hat, boot, mitten, scarf, present, stocking, Christmas lights. So masking paper was used to make masks and use on overlapping elements during stamping. The sitting flamingo I made using mirror stamping technique with my mini-MISTI. And I also made it kind of sitting on the floor (I just stamped the body and legs separately).

After stamping all birds were colored with COPICs and hand cut with scissors.Pink Christmas shaker card. Stamps and sequins from Studio Katia. Card by @s_shayevichNext I made an a2 top folding card base out of Neenah Solar White cardstock and white embossed HA Holiday Florals on it. Followed by inking with Worn Lipstick Distress ink using my ink applicator.

Then I moved to creating a shaker using Stitched Nested Creative Rectangles dies. I put one flamingo inside of the shaker along with Pink Winter sequins mix. Two others went on the top of the shaker. I stamped several Christmas lights strings onto the top part of the window using MFT Electric Red. With the same ink was stamped the sentiment, which then was cut out and added a sentiment to the card bottom. To finish off my card I adhered several sequins using my Ranger Milti Medium with precision tip.Pink Christmas shaker card. Stamps and sequins from Studio Katia. Card by @s_shayevich

    Я когда увидела у тебя это розовое чудо-обомлела. Очень сочно, празднично и, как обычно, с твоим юморком! Запутавшийся фламинго ну просто умора! А тот лентяй с рожками – крейзи супер стар вообще)))
