Bunny Friends

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with a card to share with you today using Bunny Friends. This is a 3x4 stamp set that is just incredibly adorable... you can use it for an Easter card, friendship, or a just because.

For today's card, I decided to make it a simple card. I masked off part of my card base and used distress inks to color up the top portion of the card. I used bright and cheerful colors so the bunnies would pop against them. Once I finish adding the ink, I used water to splatter everywhere and picked it up using a towel. I just love the effect of the distress inks for a background.


In this set, there are three sentiments that you can mix and match. I chose to use two of them "Thank You" and "for being in my life". I wanted to heat emboss them on black cardstock and to use the second sentiment as a place for the bunnies to sit. I staggered them slightly just so it looks like the perfect place for the bunnies.


I just adore this set and I hope you do too! Can't wait to use them again!




Thanks for stopping by. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

Happy easter - Larissa


Hello, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a card on the digital stampblog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I have made a card with a couple of images from the Easter bunnies digital stamp bundle from Gerda Steiner designs.


I combined the images on the computer into a scene and printed it. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I have fussy cut the image. I have die-cut a stitched rectangle with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 36 from Crealies and made a background for the image on it with Mowed lawn and Tumbled glass distress ink. I have die-cut a larger rectangle from black cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 24 from Crealies and glued the rectangle with the image on top of it. On a kraft cardI glued some yellow dotted design paper from the Designer mega sheets Dots - Bright colours from Card deco. I have glued the image with foamtape on the card. In the right bottom corner I stamped a sentiment from the set Easter bunnies (clear stamp) from Gerda Steiner designs.

It's Ashlee here today and I have a card to share with you using the funny set "Chicken scratch"
(co-ordinating dies also available)....

This set is full of super cute chickens and an adorable piggy along with some awesome sentiments that match the animals perfectly!!


I created a fun colourful background by using a range of Catherine pooler inks splattered with water for a splotchy effect. Then using white cardstock, I cut out the two co-ordinating layer dies quatrefoil 1 and 2 from Paper rose. 


The sentiments are heat embossed using WOW! opaque white embossing powder on black cardstock...

Of course to finish off the card a touch of clear sequins....

Lots and Lots of Critters!

Howdy all!  I’m Allison Cope and I’m here today to share a video where I pile a whole lot of critters into one fun birthday card and color it up in front of your eyes!

For today’s card I’ll be using the following digital stamps; “Birthday Bear”, “Coffee Mouse” (our FREE digi right now!!), “Cat with Balloons”, the bunny holding the sign from the “Easter Bunnies Digital Stamp Bundle”, “Bunny with Carrot” and finally, “Penguin with Heart”! I know… that’s SEVEN digital stamps all on ONE card!

I decided NOT to speed up the coloring on this so you could hear all the details of my coloring process.  So grab a cup of your favorite drink and join me in my craftroom for a rather long video today.  Trust me… it’ll be worth it!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdBAjNZqjOo&feature=youtu.be

Here’s one more look at the final card…

Once again, thanks for joining me today!  I hope you too get time to get crafty!  Have a great week!

Easter bunnies on a Memory dex card - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today today I am posting a new creation on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I made a card for my Memory dex.


Today I used a freebie digital stamp. This is the Easter bunnies digital stamp from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I have fussy cut the image. I love this advantage of digital stamps, you are able to print the image in the perfect size so it can even fit on a tiny Memory dex card. I only had to use a black fineliner to add some more grass border.
I have die-cut my Memory dex card with the Stencils SL120 from Studio light. I have die-cut the second layer from purple design paper from the Classic gingham paperpad from Sunny studio. I have die-cut the upper layer from white cardstock and then I have coloured it with Tumbled glass, Broken china en Faded jeans distress ink. I have die-cut a little sun and a couple of clouds from white cardstock with the Craftables CR1459 from Marianne design. I coloured the sun with Wild honey and Spiced marmelade distress ink and then I glued them all on the sky. I have glued the image with foamtape on the Memory dex card.

Happy Spring Card With The Easter Bunnies Bundle



Hello friends! Karla here today with another cute card featuring the adorable EasterBunnies Digital Stamp Bundle in the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop. There are so many super cute images included in this bundle and I’m sure you’ll be as excited to get your Easter crafting started as I am! Today, I’m sharing a sweet Spring card using the images of the easel, bunny with paintbrush and paint pots. I coloured everything with Copics and Prismacolor Markers, both alcohol based, and then cut out the paint pots and layered them with foam dots in front of the easel. A pretty floral brad and polkadot bow add texture and dimension at the top of the card.


I used a Happy Spring stamp from my stash with grey ink to add a simple message to the easel area. You could write in your own message or type one in before printing your cute digi! I layered the white cardstock on a scalloped square stitched diecut and popped it up with foam dots.


I added some pretty floral and polkadot ribbons and layered everything over some lovely Spring coloured patterned paper along with some sparkly sequins. Now my card is ready to send to someone special! Be sure to head over to the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop to check out this sweet EasterBunnies Digital Stamp Bundle. I know you’re going to love it!! Thanks so much for stopping by 😊

Hugs,
Karla

Just Chicken In!


Happy Saturday! I’m sharing a card today using the brand new Chicken Scratch stamp set. These stamps are SO super cute and funny!

I just love their expressions!





For this one, I started by stamping and masking the chickens using a light gray Copic friendly ink. I also cut a piece of eclipse masking tape for the ground under them.

I used a light gray ink and a chicken wire stencil for the background and then colored up my little scene with Copics and some colored pencil details.




I’ve combined a punny sentiment from this set with the “hey friend” sentiment from the Foxes stamp set. I liked the look of the different script together and it fit the space just right. I’ve heat embossed them with black embossing powder.

I added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom to ground the scene and add some extra interest.


Hope you have a great crafty weekend and see you again soon!

Hoppy Easter to Everybunny

Hi, Margreet here.
 I created this Easter scrapling using one of the bunnies of the Gerda Steiner Easter Bunnies Digital Stamp Bundle. 
I adhered the design paper and put some Easter washitape at the top and at the bottom.

Printed and colored the image with both copics and Derwent Procolour pencils, fussy cut it and sticked it with foam tape.
The sentiment is handwritten (copied from Create with TLC).

Hoppy Easter!

[VIDEO] Masked Scene with Laura

Masked Scene feat Gerda Steiner Designs Chicken Scratch

Hi everyone! It's Laura here and today I am back with a fun masked scene I created with the Gerda Steiner Designs Chicken Scratch stamp set and a video tutorial showing how to make it!

I created my scene on some Neenah Solar White 110lb carstock that I die cut with the a stitched rectangle die. For the masks I used some removable packaging labels and to stamp the images I used my Mini MISTI and hybrid black ink.

Masked Scene feat Gerda Steiner Designs Chicken Scratch

After I was done stamping, and with the masks still in position, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxides and the Ranger Blending Brushes. I used Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint for the grass and Broken China and Tumbled Glass for the sky. I added some water droplets for an extra detail on the background.

Masked Scene feat Gerda Steiner Designs Chicken Scratch

To color the images I used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. You can watch the coloring process, including a list of the markers I used, in the video tutorial at the end of this post.

Masked Scene feat Gerda Steiner Designs Chicken Scratch

I created a background for my scene using a 4.25x5.5" stitched rectangle die and some woodgrain patterned paper. I adhered everything to a top folding A2 card base and moved on to the finishing touches.

I added some details to the images with Glossy Accents and some enamel dots with Nuvo Drops in Simply White.
And that's my card for today! As I mentioned, I filmed a video tutorial for you, showing you how to create this cute masked scene with the Gerda Steiner Designs Chicken Scratch Stamp Set. You can watch it down below or directly on my YouTube channel. 






Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!
