Namasleigh Christmas Card with *Video*

Hello and welcome, it’s Karen here again today. I’ve got a fun Christmas card today that features a brand new Gerda Steiner Designs stamp set called Namasleigh.  I love the idea of the reindeer and Santa getting ready for their big day by doing some yoga together, and even the birds and snowman got in on it!  To fit all these images in (because I had to include all the reindeer), I’ve made a double zig zag card. When the card is folded down, it measures 5” x 4 1/4”. But when it’s opened up, it’s over 16” wide! So there’s lots of room to fit all those images.

I’ve made a video for you to see how this card was made.  If you are interested in seeing it, PLEASE CLICK HERE.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day! 

Boo!

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I have another Halloween Card for you. This time I used the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs Ghosts stamp set:

  • stamp two of the ghosts from the Gerda Steiner Designs Ghosts set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black
  • color the images with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • create a background on a piece of grass cardstock with the help of three different colored striped of glitter paper
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versafine Clair Nocturne and heat-emboss it with WOW! Clear Sparkle embossing glitter
  • add a strip of black cardstock and patterned paper to the left side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase



I hope you got inspired.


Hugs,



Namasleigh with Santa and Rudolph - Alma


I'm Alma from "Alma im Stempelglueck" and today it's my turn to show you a

card with the new Gerda Steiner Namasleigh Clear 4*6 stamp set and the
coordinating Namasleigh die set. Santa and Rudolph are sliding back and
forth on the ice quite a bit! Oh it's so slippery!

I used the mirror stamping technique for this card with which the images can
be mirrored. Isn't the reflection on the frozen pond looking totally
realistic?

It's not that difficult!
The only thing you need is a stamping tool.

1.) Position the card on which the image is to be mirrored on the stamping tool
and place the stamp with the stamping side up on the card exactly where it
is to be stamped later.


2.) Ink your stamp and stamp the image on the upper side of your stamping tool.
It works best by using a slowly drying ink pad!



3.) Remove the stamp and stamp the image right from the top of your stamping
tool onto your card! Sometimes it works better if you put a cardboard underneath the card on the
bottom side of the tool.
Stamp the image! The imprint does not have to be perfect for a pond
reflection! On the contrary, it should look a bit blurry! 


4.) Colourize your image exactly the same like your main image! In addition to Rudolph, I also mirrored Santa.


5.) When you have coloured your images, you can create a scene around it.
I have coloured the pond and added the trees from the Tangled Penguin 4*6
clear stamp set!



6.) To make the pond reflection look more realistic, I put Vellum over it and
glue it on! You get more depth in the background and in addition, the colours on the
reflection are looking softer and more realistic.



Now, you only have to stick all together!
Done!!!!
