Guest Design: Coffee Monster by Anika Lerche

Hey stampers, it's me again, Anni, for another guest design post.

I couldn't resist these super cute monster from the set Coffee Monster. After my colourful monsters last week I decided to create a colourful background for this card.



I started by masking of a stripe on a piece of water colour cardstock. I ink blended Distress Oxide inks in rainbow order. On this ink blended stripe I drew some circles with clear water.

While the background was drying I stamped the monster in Copic friendly ink on white paper. I coloured the monster in warm grey tones and added a little bit of silver glitter glue to it's dots. I fussy cut the image. I LOVE to fussy cut but if you don't, don't panic - there are coordinating dies available, too!


I adhered a stripe of black cardstock to the background to make the colours even more and added some dots of Glossy Accents, too.

Then I assembled the card!

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend.

Reindeer and a tree - Merry christmas - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a christmas card with cute reindeer.


This time I made a christmas card with the stampset Reindeer and a tree from Gerda Steiner designs.


I stamped a couple of images from the stamp set Reindeer and a tree from Gerda Steiner designs and then I coloured them all with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. Then I fussy cut all the images. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 42 from Crealies I die-cut a square from white cardstock. I die-cut a square with the same size from red gingham design paper from the Tiny check brights paperpad from My favorite things. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 49 from Crealies I die-cut a couple of circles in different sizes in the square from white cardstock. I adhered the white square with foamtape on the red gingham square and then I adhered them both on a white card.


Then I placed all the reindeer, the tree and the christmasornament in all the circles. I had to cut parts from some of the animals away to make them fit in the circles....Sorry reindeer. ;) I stamped a sentiment from the set Tiny type from Clearly besotted stamps on black cardstock with versamark ink and then I embossed it with white embossingpowder. I coloured all the noses from the reindeer and the christmas ornaments with the Glitter gloss pen from Nuvo and then I applied glossy accents on them.
