Pugs & Kisses

Hi, Margreet here with a DT card for Gerda Steiner Designs.
I created a birthday card with the sweet digital stamp Pug Digital Stamp.
I started with embossing the blue cardstock with the Swiss dots embossing folder and attached it with foam tape on a white cardbase.
Then I made a striped fishtail and glued it on the blue cardstock. 
Then I printed and colored the image, and die cut it with the Notebook Paper die from Die-namics (My Favorite Things). The cute image goes with and without the sentiment.
I put some washitape under the pug to ground him.
All edges are touched with distress ink vintage photo.
Enjoy your Sunday!

Hello Pumpkin!



Happy Friday everyone! It's Cathy here sharing a simple card today using the cute new Pumpkin Bear stamps!

Teal is my favorite color, so how happy was I when  I turned to Pinterest for a little color scheme inspiration and found a fabulous photo of Fairytale and Jarrahdale pumpkins! I didn't know teal pumpkins actually exist in nature!

Super simple design on this card which I started by die-cutting the white background panel and inking a stencil with Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber distress inks. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment from the set.

I then die-cut a strip of patterned paper using the same die and adhered it to the panel. I wrapped a piece of twine around the panel, tied a little bow and matted the panel on a teal cardstock.



I stamped the bear image and masked it before stamping the pumpkins. I colored them all with Copics and fussy cut them out. Since it's nearly impossible to fussy cut the fringe on the scarf, I cut the fringe off and glued some black embroidery floss to the back of the scarf and trimmed it down.

To add a little dimension, I used foam adhesive to glue the bear and pumpkins to the card front.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend and I'll see you again soon!

Mummy Kitten and Jack-o-Lantern Card with video by Karla

Hello friends! It's Karla back today with a sweet and not too spooky card and video for you using the awesome Halloween Kids Digital Stamp Set, which includes many images that are great for scene building. For this card I'm choosing to use the fence, jack-o-lantern and kitten. (PS You can also find this kitten separately as the Mummy Kitten digital stamp!)


I coloured up all the images with Copic Markers and some other alcohol based markers from my stash. I added some stitching with some embroidery floss, sewing in the holes created with a Sizzix oval dotted die. A few sequins add a little bling - because what would Halloween be without bling 😉


Inside, I added the Happy Halloween sentiment that is included in the Halloween Kids digital stamp set and another pumpkin.



Here's a look at the video where I'm putting this cute card together for my 13 Days Of Halloween Series -


Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop where you'll find lots of cute creatures to colour up, and have a fantastic weekend ahead!!

Hugs,
Karla
