Hello, it’s Karen here and I’ve got a Valentines Day card today that I think is a masculine one. Every year I get excited about making some pretty pink and red Valentines cards with hearts and flowers, but come Valentines Day, none of these seem appropriate for my husband! So I tried hard not to get out the pink and reds for this one, except for a wee pop of pink on the inside.

Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today it is my turn again to post a card on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I have made a birthday card with the digital stamp Birthday bee from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and a white gelpen. I have fussy cut the image.
My mini card is made from white cardstock and the size of the front is 10x10 cm. On my card I have glued a strip of red patterned paper from the Celebrations paperpack (PK9131 - retired) from Marianne design. On some other white cardstock I have made a background with the Mini cloud edges stencil from My favorite things and Tumbled glass distress ink. I doodled around the edges of the white cardstock with a black fineliner. I have glued the background with foamtape on the card and then I added the image with foamtape on the card. I have rounded the right corners of the card with a corner punch.

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Sending Hugs. I wanted to use a winter set since it's still winter and in my area, it's been pretty cold. These images are super cute in this set and I thought it would be perfect to kick off the new year with this duo.
Along with the new year, the Pantone colors of the year are yellow and grey so I thought I'd pay a tribute to it. Using a hexagon die, I cut out a bunch of grey hexagons to place on a piece of yellow cardstock. I just kept the pattern very simple for this background. Once I was done, I trimmed it down by a quarter of an inch so I could mat it on kraft cardstock.I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock strip so it would really pop and then I popped up the image I colored using copic markers by using foam tape.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
