Memory dex card - Season's tweetings - Larissa

Goodmorning, today I am posting a new project on my own blog but also on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I have made a card for my Memory dex. The card is my own design and I have cut it with the Silhouette cameo.

On my card I have used the digital stamp Snowman and birds from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. With a white gelpen I have added dots on the scarf from the snowman. I have then fussy cut the image. I have diecut a snowglobe from red and white cardstock with the Snowglobe die-namics from My favorite things. On the red part I have stamped a sentiment from the set Winter sparrows from Lawn fawn with versamark ink and then I embossed it with white embossingpowder. I coloured the white part of the snowglobe with Chipped saphire Distress ink. I have diecut snowflakes from white cardstock with the Scenic snowglobe die-namics from My favorite things and glued those on the blue background. I glued the snowglobe on my white Memory dex card. I doodled lines around the edges with a black fineliner. Then I have diecut a couple of little stars from red cadstock with a Freebie die from La pareja creativa and I glued those on the card.

Let it snow Santa

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and as promised I am back with another Gerda Steiner Designs Christmas Project. This time I would like to show you this cute Santa Card made with the help of the Gerda Steiner Designs Snow Angel Stamp Set:

  • stamp the Santa from the Gerda Steiner Designs Snow Angel set with Lawn Fawn River Rock, cut it out and color it with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • create a background on a stitched panel cut from smooth white cardstock using Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac and a Blending Brush
  • add water and glitter droplets for a snow effect
  • stamp the Santa and the sentiment from the same stamp set onto the background panel with Versamark and heat-emboss it with white embossing glitter
  • cover the cardbase with patterned paper before adhering the panel

Have a christmasy day.

Magical Christmas Night by Ildi

Hello sweet crafty friends, it's Ildi here with a calm Christmas night scene card. I used this adorable pup from the set Christmas Puppies .

For starting my card I stamped the image onto a piece of Copic friendly paper. I colored it quickly with my markers. I decided to have a night backgound, I'm so fond of dark skies on Christmas cards.

I sketched my background with light shades and added more colours later. When I finished my backgound, I stamped the sentiment with watermark ink and heatset it with white embossing powder.  As a finishing touch I added snow to the pinetrees and the sky with a white gelly pen. 

I had so much fun playing with these cute stamp sets and hope you liked my cards.

Happy crafting,
