2018 Mice - Larissa


Goodmorning, it is Larissa again. This time I am using a freebie that you can download from the site from Gerda Steiner designs.


I made a card with the image 2018 mice from Gerda Steiner designs. It is the perfect image for a Happy new year card. :) I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I have fussy cut the image. I stamped a little star from the stampset Perfectly penned from Concord and 9th on the numbers with versamark ink and then I embossed them with white embossing powder. Then I coloured the numbers with the Clear Spectrum noir sparkle pen. On a piece of white cardstock I stamped a couple of snowflakes from the stampset Caroling critters from Avery elle with versamark ink and then I embossed them with white embossingpowder. Then I coloured the white cardstock with Tumbled glass and Broken china distress ink and I adhered it on a white card. I adhered the image with foamtape on the card. On a strip of white cardstock I stamped the sentiment with the stampsets Simply said and Simply said II from Uniko. I have cut it into a bannershape and adhered it on the card.

Reindeer Shaker

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this sweet little shaker card using stamps from the Gerda Steiner Designs Peeking Friends stamp set:

  • cut out a stitched panel from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock using one of the My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Rectangles 
  • cut out a Christmas Tree from that panel with the help of one of the dies from the Sizzix Festive Fancies set
  • glue a piece of acetate behind the oping and surround it with a double layer of double-sided foam tape
  • fill the shaker element with clear and green seed beads and close it with a piece of patterned paper from the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa 6x6 paper pad
  • cut out another wonky stitched panel from patterned paper from that same paper pad and adhere all the layers to a Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardbase
  • stamp the cute little reindeer from the Gerda Steiner Designs Peeking Friends set with Versafine Onyx Black
  • color the image with Faber-Castell Albrecht-Dürer pencils and add Stickles Glitter Glue Christmas Red to its nose
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set onto a strip of patterned paper with Versafine Onyx Black and heat-emboss it with clear embossing powder for extra dimension
  • layer a thin strip of red glitter paper underneath the sentiment strip to match the nose of the reindeer

Here is an additional picture o the card:



Have a christmasy day.

Yours,

Be My Valentine...

 Hello Everyone,

Its Hazel from Didos Designs here today to share with you a couple of cards I have made using the Penguin Valentines Acrylic Stamp Set.   These stamps are so versatile and you dont just have to use them for Valentines Day creations. 

The set has 4 stamps and 4 sentiments, all perfect to show you care. 

I wanted to make something super cute with lots of pretty papers for the top card. 
My second card is made using die cuts so that Mr Penguin is out in the snow off delivering this cute balloon to his love. 

I hope that these cards have given you some inspiration. Before I go have you been over to the store this month?? Gerda and Macy have a lovely Advent Calendar with a gift for us lucky crafters every day!!! 

Thanks for dropping by today and Thank You to Gerda and Macy for having me Guest Design for them once again. Its been a pleasure xx

Love Hazel x
