Fall smooches

Hi everyone. Lise Mariann here agin to show my second and last card as this month's guest designer. I would like to thank Gerda so much for having me. Such an honour.

For this card I have chosen to make a fall smooch shaker card using several of Gerda's stamp sets.

I started by stamping the kissy-mice (from the "Fall in love" stamp set) and the mushroom and wreath (both from the "Foxes" stamp set).

I colored all the images using copic markers and gave them some details and highlights using a white gel pen. I then fussy cut the images.



I cut a circle from my card panel (cut to size using a stitched rectangle die), glued my wreath on top of the circle and glued a piece of acetate behind the panel. 

To create the shaker I doubled up foam tape around the hole on the back, filled the shaker with beautiful sequins that shifts in color between yellow, orange and green depending on the angle you look at them and to complete the shaker part of the card I glued a piece of cardstock to "close" the shaker.

I stamped the sentiment (from the "Frogs" stamp set) on the panel before I glued on the mice and the mushroom. I popped the mice up on foam tape to create dimension.

I attatched the card panel on a white card base and finished the whole thing with a drop of glossy accent on the noses of the mice.


Take a look at the video below to watch the shaker card "in action".


I wish you all a wonderful day.

Snail Mail

Hi Everyone, Melissa here.


For today's inspiration I have used the 'Snail Mail' Digital Stamp.
  • The image has been printed onto Copic X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers.  I have cut this image out using scissors on the black line and set aside.
  • Base Card: 10x14cm white card.
  • Using a Blending Brush, stencil the clouds onto the base card.
  • Cut the 2 x Grass die from white card stock and colour using Catherine Pooler Ink (Lime Rickey).
  • Layer the 2 grass dies together and adhere to base card.
  • Adhere sentiment to card, slightly overlapping the grass.
  • Adhere coloured image to base card.  Apply Nuvo Shimmer Pen & Glossy Accents to the shell of the snail.


I hope you have a great day xxx

Sea card by Noga Shefer


Hi crafty friends,  Noga here and I am so happy to share with you another project for Gerda Steiner Designs today.





I would like to make a fun card with those adorable critters.



To make this card I took an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock. The background sky was 
created withhills stencil and tumbled glass and broken chaina distress oxide inks.


Next I colored the images using copic markers. 
I glued them to my panel with foam tape for dimension. 



Next I stamped a greeting from the stamp set using black ink.



I hope you enjoy the project I created and feel inspired to create!

Have a wonderful weekand! Noga
