You're the Best

Hi there,

here is another creation using the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs Cat in bookshelf stamp set and if my son was a cat he would look exactly like this :o)


  • color the images from the Gerda Steiner Designs Cat in bookshelf stamp set with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a damp watercolor brush
  • as a background I used a leftover piece from an earlier watercolor session cut out with one of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles 
  • stamp the sentiment from the Mama Elephant Labeled Messages with Versafine Onyx Black
  • add a swirl of silver thread behind the cute little cat before adhering it to the watercolor panel

Have a wonderful day.

Hugs,

Dachshunds birthday card - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and I am posting a new card today.


This time I made a card with the stampset Dachshunds from Gerda Steiner designs. I stamped a couple of images and coloured them with my Polychromos pencils. I have fussy cut all the images. On the front of white card I masked with painters tape a strip if cardstock, so I could make a background for my images on it. I made the background with the Drifts and hill stencil from My favorite things. I used Tumbled glass and Broken china distress ink for the sky and I used Mowed lawn distress ink for the grass. I adhered all the images with foamtape on the card. I stamped a sentiment from the stampset Tiny type from Clearly besotted stamps under the images.

More Than Pie - Pull Up card

Hi there!

Today I'm sharing this card using the More Than Pie stamp set that I adore! It's a cute set with bears and pies... who doesn't love that?

I had this idea in my head for awhile but when I went to the stamp set, I realized that the bear I wanted to use was actually holding the pie in his hand. I really wanted to make it so he would pop up from a window to peek at the pie with his mischievous face.

This happens a lot when I have an idea for an interactive card in my head so sometimes I just have to mask and manipulate the image a bit. I ended up removing the pie from his hand and created a standalone bear and used the standalone pie image to go on the window sill.



Also, for this particular slider, I don't need a slider die. I just create a channel using foam tape. Check out the tutorial on my Youtube channel.

Hope you enjoyed this card and checked out the video. It's really cute!
