It´s Yolanda here from Scraping Time, in my first post for Gerda Steiner Designs.
I can´t tell with words how happy I am to be here! Gerda Steiner Stamps are amazing and always make me smile!! I met her designs some months ago and it was love at first sight!!!!
I have played with her stamps during some months and when she offered me to be part of her DT I couldn´t be more grateful!!
I am from the South of Spain and English is not my mother language so I hope you excuse my mistakes!!
For this first post, I have made a couple of cards with the new clear stamp set "Hippo in disguise".
This hippo is so much fun and you can use it as a super hero or a cute vampire!!
Some of the members of the team have made fabulous cards these days with the super hero stamp so I decided to transform it into a super heroine!!! :)
I decided to use pink as the main colour of the card in order to give her feminine power!! hehehe I really enjoyed playing with the cute stamp looking at it as a girl!
I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour it and I fussy cut it. I put some glossy accent in her eyes and ready to fly!!
For the pink background I used for the sentiment on the speech balloon, I used some salt.
Firstly, I took a watercolor paper, water, Peerless watercolour (pink and coral) and then, some salt until it got dry! It is a fun technique to get nice backgrounds.
And now, I would like to show you my second card with the same stamp.
In this occasion, I used the complements of the set to transform the hippo into a cute and sweet vampire!!
I am a #shakercardaddicted so I think you will see some of them in the next months here! They are so cute and I love making them! For the purple background I used the same technique (using the salt) I made my own sentiment with an ABC and I also coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers. It was so much fun to see its new look!!!
For the shaker I used differents elements and I sticked some of the stars to the background.
I hope you enjoy the scene!
It has been great to have been here for the first time!
