So happy we're friends - Lovely panda's - Larissa

Goodmorning, today I am posting a new card on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I made a card with the stampset Lovely panda's from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the panda with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I coloured the balloon with the Clear Spectrum noir sparkle glitter pen and then I applied Glossy accents on it. 

On a white card I added a couple of clouds with the Mini cloud edges stencil from My favorite things and Tumbled glass distress ink. I made a little hill for my panda with the Drifts and hills stencil from My favorite things and Mowed lawn distress ink. I glued the images with foamtape on my card. Then I stamped a sentiment from the stampset Lovely panda's from Gerda Steiner designs next to the image.

Blown Away!

Hi, Crafty friends! Its Rebekah with you today sharing a card made using a new stamp set from Gerda Steiner! I am only sharing one of the images from the new Big Bite...consider this a peek! But trust me, the other images and just a cute and

This set,  like the last few, totally have my heart! I think the images are so cute and I love the font for the sentiments!

I started off by creating by background by using a stencil which reminded me of water. I played it on my background and brushed on a light covering of Distress inks. I then used a frame die from my stash and cut out a frame from blot and from white cardstock.  On the blue, I added a little more inking using the same stencil.

I then colored this adorable little puffer fish with my Copic markers and fussy cut him out. It is a more complicated image but it only too me a minute or two! I then attached a mini action wobble to the back of my puffer fish and the adhered home inside the frame. I then stamped my sentiment in a dark blue ink.

Super easy and super fun and can be used for either a male or female and for so many occasions.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the Big Bite stamp set in the Gerda Steiner shop! This is one you will use a ton!

Hello Summer

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today to share a card I created using Gerda Steiner Designs’ stamp set named, Catch a Wave. I'm a few days late from the start of summer but Happy Summer! Does anyone have any fun summer plans? For me, I have just a few weekend trips planned away and that's enough because I adore doing absolutely nothing and just relaxing.

Since it's the start of summer, I wanted to share an oceanside card and I went with simple. I put this together using distress inks on opposite corners of the card. Abstractly, the blue side is ocean and the bottom right is the beachy sand.

I added the main stamp image from this set and colored him up. I just adore him because he's so hip with his sunglasses! 

Hope you enjoyed this card today and have a great start to your summer! 

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!

Deeply Grateful For Your Friendship

Happy weekend, everyone! Cathy here sharing a card using the new Deeply stamp set and can I just say how much I LOVE these new summer stamp sets from Gerda Steiner Designs?!

This set has the cutest little sea creatures and having the option to add that adorable bear in the submarine is so fun!!

For the background, I played with some Dr. Ph. Martin's radiant liquid watercolors in turquoise blue, juniper green, and jungle green. I've colored all of the images with Copics and fussy cut them out. I love all of the vibrant colors against the turquoise waters.

I've added a few bubbles off to the side using a stencil and Copic markers BG11 and BG10. I've also added some glossy accents just along one edge of the bubbles for a little shine.

Hope you have a fabulous crafty weekend and I can't wait to share some more new arrivals in the coming weeks!

See you soon!

Stay Pawsitive with ... Crafty Girls Lau&Andy

Hello crafty friends!

It's Laura here and I'm so honored and thrilled to be a guest on the Gerda Steiner Designs blog this month. I'm so grateful for their kind invitation and I would like to thank Julisa and Macy for giving me this opportunity.
Today, just a little card to say "STAY PAWSITIVE" that I made using the "All cats" set of clear stamps.

I started with cutting 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch card base, then I worked on the creation of the scene. I stamped the two cats and the little mouse on Canson paper using Versafine black. I colored them using mixing watercolor pencils and distress ink, then I cut them out.
I cropped a small black banner where I stamped and embossed a sentiment in white.   

I created a small background on the right side on the card base. I used a stencil and tea dye distress ink for the brickwork and brushed corduroy distress ink for the ground. Eventually, I adhered the funny colorful friends and the banner with foam tape, and I created a paper layer with a black cardstock. 

Thank you for visiting the blog! I had so much fun making this card and I hope I inspired you today.

Have a good day!

Have a tea-riffic day! - Larissa

Hello, today I am posting a new project on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I made a card with the digital stamp Tea-riffic mouse from Gerda Steiner designs (digistamp). I have coloured the little mouse with my Polychromos pencils, the black glaze pen and a white gelpen. I have cut the image and used a paper distresser on the edges of the image. Then I coloured the edges of the image with Wild honey Distress ink.

Then I glued the image on the card with foamtape. From yellow and red design paper from the same paperpad I have die-cut a couple of flowers with the Blossom 45.3103 from Leane creatief and I glued those on the card. I decorated all the flowers with a little pearls from the set Off-white pearls from Marianne design (A3133).

Inside the card I made 2 little pockets that each hold a bag of tea. I used yellow design paper from the Celebrations pretty paper bloc from Marianne design PK9131 to make the pockets. I decorated them with a hear that I have die-cut with the Hearts dies from Paper smooches from red design paper.

Deeply love this set!

Hello crafty friends! Its Rebekah with you today sharing a card made using the Deeply stamp set! Have you see it yet?

Pretty cute, huh!!?? There are even dues available for this set!

Here is my card for the week! It was a work of Copic cooking and some ink blending! I used distress inks and a wave stencil to create the background. It sometimes help to save time when creating scene cards to use Distress inks rather then only Copic markers!

I first stamped the sub image towards the bottom of the card. I made sure I did not have any ink on the periscope. I wanted it to be long and extend to the top of the water. I stamped the other periscope at the top of the water and connected the two with a black Copic marker!

I colored my images and the stamped some of the fish which are in this set to help finish the scene! I love how such a small things added so much depth to this card!

Some of the finishing touches on the card include, hearts by the sentiment and Crystal Glaze to make the submarine look a little more dimensional.

This was such a fun card to create! Thanks for reading! Remember to tag Gerda Steiner when you share your image on social media. We love to see what your making!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today to share a card I created using Gerda Steiner Designs’ newly released stamp set named, Deeply. This stamp set is awesome and I really didn't know where to start with this one. I have so many ideas running in my head, but I decided to keep it SUPER simple today.

Within this amazing set filled with a ton of images, I decided to focus on the jellyfish. He is super adorable!

I pulled out some yupo paper with alcohol inks to create an ocean background. I wanted a lot of different colors for the ocean and it was achieved through the alcohol inks.

For the actual jellyfish, I first stamped this out on white cardstock and then I also heat embossed it on vellum using white embossing powder. As you know, jellyfish are translucent and the vellum really creates that effect. I fussy cut out all these jelly fish and placed them on the background.

I stamped out the "Sea You Soon" sentiment using a purple ink that matched one of the background colors and placed all the jellyfish around the area. It creates such a fun ocean scene and I really love this card.

To finish off the card, I used some clear embellishment to add water bubbles to enhance the oceanic scene.

I hope you enjoy today's card and I'll definitely have a couple more cards to inspire you with this stamp set. There's so much more I can see myself using it for!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!

Happy Birthday

Hello!  It's Andrea Shell with you today, and I'm thrilled to be a guest designer this month!  I just love Gerda's adorable illustrations: The sweet faces of her critters just make my heart melt.

Panda with Balloons Card by Andrea Shell | Lovely Pandas stamp by Gerda Steiner Designs

Birthday cards are my favorite cards to make, and nothing says "Happy" like a big bunch of balloons!  I gave this cutie pie from Lovely Pandas a whole lot of balloons to hold by stamping and masking just the balloon of the image.  I stamped the panda separately and cut off the single balloon.  I stamped everything with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics.  I  hand-drew the strings with a black pen and fussy-cut both images.

Panda with Balloons Card by Andrea Shell | Lovely Pandas stamp by Gerda Steiner Designs

To keep the focus on the panda and balloons, I kept the background pretty simple.  I used a cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass distress ink for the sky and green Copics for the grass.  I stamped a sentiment from Happy Hoppy with Versafine Onyx Black and adhered the panel to a white card.

I popped up the colored images with foam tape and added highlights with a white gel pen.  For some sparkle, I adhered clear sequins and brushed Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay onto the balloons.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello, crafty friends! This is Rebekah here with you this today! Are you ready for a card made with the newest and one of the cutest stamp set to ever??

I made this scene card using the NEW stamp set  Deeply! I love this set in every way!  The little critters are so cute and the font and sentiments will work perfect for a lot of different types of cards! This little submarine is the star of the set but there are more fun fish to color and even a jellyfish!

For this card I used a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Copic safe paper. I used the markers to create the background by simply dragging the marker from one side to the paper to the other. I was not particularly worried about it being a little streaky because that helps it look more like water.

I was sure to over lap the colors especial around the sand! It helps crate a pretty transition! I added a few dots of a slightly darker marker and a white gel pen to create texture on the sand.

I colored the images and fussy cut them out and then added them to my scene. I used the small solid fish and the small jellyfish in this stamps set _I stamped with randomly on the background and the stamped the sentiment!

It was such a fun card to make and I can SEA myself making many more cards using this set! Be sure to check out the shop! It will be available today!!

Ha-bee Birthday

Hi, Margreet here.
I created a card with the sweet digital stamp Ha-bee Birthday! from Gerda Steiner Designs
 I started with die cutting using Sizzix hexagons.
Then I used distress ink Pumice Stone and the Dutch Doobadoo Mask Art chicken wire on the yellow cardstock.
Finished with some Gnome Ribbon - Bees from Crafty Ribbons
Stamped and colored the sweet image with copics.
Added Stickles on the wings and distressed the edges with yellow ink.
It was a pleasure working with this happy bee.
