Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a new card on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I have made a card with the clear stampset Frogs from Gerda Steiner designs. I have stamped the frog on Florence watercolour paper smooth from Vaessen creative with Versafine clair nocturne inkt and then I embossed the image with clear embossingpowder. I have coloured the image with my Distress inks and then I have fussy cut the image.
On a white card I have made a background with the Mini cloud edges stencil from My favorite things and Tumbled glass distress ink. I have used the Tear away stencil from Clearly besotted with Broken china distress ink to add water on my card. I have glued the image with foamtape on the card. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 110 from Crealies I have die-cut a frame from white cardstock and then I glued it on the card. Then I added a sentiment from the set Frogs from Gerda Steiner designs on the card.

Hello, and welcome! It’s Karen here again and I’ve got two Christmas cards to share with you today featuring the Reindeer and a Tree stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs. We’ve had our Thanksgiving here in Canada, and Halloween is almost here, so I’ve been on a roll making Christmas cards lately - I hope that’s not too early for you! I’m trying very hard to use my stamps and dies more frequently but in different ways, so since I had two cards made with this set, I thought I’d share both of them with you.
Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a new card on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. I have made a halloween card with the clear stamp set Peekin' pumpkin kitty from Gerda Steiner designs. I have stamped the image on Aquarelpapier smooth Wit 200g A6 from Vaessen creative with Versafine clair nocturne ink and then I embossed the image with clear embossingpowder. I have coloured the image with my Distress inks.
I have die-cut the image with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 33 from Crealies and then I glued the image on a scalloped circle that I have die-cut from black cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 53 from Crealies. I have used a black card. I glued orange patterned paper on the card from the Tiny check brights paperpad from My favorite things after I have die-cut it with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 34 from Crealies and then I glued it on the card. I have tied black seam binding around the front of the card and then I glued the circle on the card. Under the image I have stamped a sentiment from the set Peekin' pumpkin kitty from Gerda Steiner designs.

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Foxes. Fall is my favorite season so I just had to create a card using it and the foxes are so perfect for it!

Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today it is my turn to post a card on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I have made a card with the Warm fuzzies clear stamp from Gerda Steiner designs. This image is also available as a digital stamp: Warm fuzzies digital stamp. I have stamped the image with Versafine clair nocturne ink on watercolour paper and then I embossed the image with clear embossingpowder. Then I coloured the image with Distress inks and then I have fussy cut the image.
I decided to make a "mini slimline" card again from white cardstock. On my card I have glued blue and white patterned paper from the Spots & brights paperpad (retired) from Sugarpea designs and then I cut a hole in it with a die from the set Snijmallen DL "Slimline kaart 2" from Carlijn design. After I glued the patterned paper on my card I glued the image with foamtape on the card. On a strip of white cardstock I have stamped a sentiment from the set Coffeesaurus clear stamp from Gerda Steiner designs with Versafine clair nocturne ink and then I embossed the sentiment with clear embossingpowder. I have coloured the strip with Picked raspberry Distress ink and glued it with foamtape on the card. I have also diie-cut a couple of flowers from white cardstock after I first coloured it with the pink ink. I added a coupleof leaves from green cardstock and then I glued the flowers with foamtape on the card. I have decorated the flowers with white pearls.

A month ago, I used the same Ghosts stamp set to create a flashlight card. If you missed it, stop by to check it out as it comes with a video as well.
Today, I really wanted to use these ghosts heat embossed on vellum to give them the translucent look. I did fussy cut the images out but it was totally worth it. I created this background using a October night sky stencil to create the spooky vibe.
These ghosts are so fun for Halloween. I love it so much.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!

Hey my friends...
It's Ashlee here today and I've got a colourful card to share with you today using the "Llama tell you" stamp set....
I coloured up the cute armadillos using Spoectrum noir tri-blend markers in some fun colours so they would pop off the card...

For the background of this card, I've die-cut an animal print cover plate die from Momenta out of black cardstock and glued it to the card base. I then cut a 3" x 4" piece of white cardstock and inked it with Old Paper distress ink. I die-cut the top edge of the cardstock piece with a stitched rolling hills die and glued it to the bottom of the card front.
For a little African savanna scene, I die-cut a circle from white cardstock and inked the top portion with Ripe Persimmon and Scattered Straw distress ink. I die-cut the circle again from black cardstock and used a safari skyline die from Club La-La Land Crafts across the center of the die-cut circle and then glued the circle die-cuts together.
I colored all of the critters and the jeep with Copics, fussy cut them out and glued them to the card front as shown. Since they're driving a little wild, I dabbed a little white gouache around the tires with a paint brush to indicate a little dust and movement.
Hope you've enjoyed and have a great crafty week!

Hello and welcome - it’s Karen here today. I’ve got a slimline card that features the Carol Kittens stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs as well as one of the puppies from the Howl are You set and one of the kittens from the Christmas Kittens set. My card took a bit of a left turn along the way, and I ended up with a second bonus card for you, so you can see that card at the end of this post.
When I went to assemble my card, things took a left turn. I felt that the puppy was rather lost amongst all the kittens, but he was meant to be the singing star of the card. So I removed the Christmas kitten in the tree (who I thought was looking very startled by the dogs’ singing), and he shows up later in the bonus card. I die cut some trees from Sunny Studios Woodland Borders die set and covered them with Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste.
I embossed and heat set the words “Joy”, “The World” and the musical symbols (all from the Carol Kittens stamp set), using some Stampendous Pearlustre Moonstone embossing powder onto my snowbank border. I also used the word stamp “To Youuuuuuuu!!!” from the Howl are You set and changed it to “Tooooooooo” by masking and rotating the stamp to only stamp and emboss the bottom of the u’s. I then cut this out to make a speech bubble.
To assemble my card, I foam mounted the snowbank and adhered it to the background. I added some Nuvo shimmer pen just along the edge of the snowbank and then adhered the rest of my images. Finally, I glued the speech bubble in place to complete my card. I love how that tabby kitten looks somewhat worried by the dog’s howling.
And for the Bonus Card ...
So even though I had this card done, I still had that kitten in the tree image coloured and cut, so I decided to make a second card with it. I coloured one of the other kittens in the Christmas Kittens set, as well as the tree branches.
I die cut a panel of white cardstock with a wonky stitched rectangle die, and cut a lift the flap circle on this. I heat embossed the “naughty or nice” sentiment around the flap in Stampendous Pearlustre Moonstone embossing powder. I did the same for the word “Lift” on the flap. I die cut a frame of gold foil cardstock and adhered this to my card base. I glued the kitten in the tree in place so he would show up behind the flap, and then adhered my white rectangle panel to the card base. I added the second kitten below the flap, and glued the tree branches over the flap itself. I added glossy accents to all the ornaments. On the inside, I stamped the sentiment and added the broken ornament.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day!
