A boo for you - Larissa

 


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today it is my turn again to post something on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I have made a halloween slimline card with the clear stamp set A Boo for you from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the images with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I have fussy cut the images.


From white cardstock I have cut a large rectangle with a die from the set Slimline Distressed (CR1569) from Marianne design. I made a spooky background on it with Mustard seed, Carved pumpkin, Crackling campfire and Black soot Distress ink. I have added the grass with the Stencil 20 from Gummiapan. I blended the grass on the card with Versafine clair nocturne ink to make it really black. I have drawn the 2 trees on the background and coloured them with a black permanent marker. I have glued the background on a white slimline card. For the little ghosts I used foamtape to add them on the card. I have stamped a sentiment from the clear stamp set A Boo for you from Gerda Steiner designs on white cardstock and then I have fussy cut all the words and glued them on the card. I have decorated the sky with black star rub-ons.

Christmas Card by Noga Shefer


Hi crafty friends,  Noga here and I am so happy to share with you another project for GSD today.



My card featuring the brand new Namasleigh 4x6 Clear Stamp Set and Namasleigh Die Set.

To make this card I took a piece of bristol smooth cardstock and cut a slimline card.

The sky was created by blending cracked pistachio distress oxide ink,I spired some water onto it and soaked it up with paper towel.

I also glued some snow flakes that I die cut from white glitter cardstck.

Next I colored the sweet images using copic markers. I glued it to my panel with foam tape for dimension.

Next I stamped a greeting from the stamp set using black ink.

To finish off, I added a white scallop frame.

I hope you enjoy the card I created and feel inspired to create!

Thanks for stopping by,

Squirrels and Gourds Birthday Card

Hello, it’s Karen here again today. I have another interactive card today that uses the Lawn Fawn Swish ‘N Pop pull tab die and I’ve paired it with the new “Gourds” and the “Happy Fall” stamp sets from Gerda Steiner Designs.  The gourds just make me smile and the squirrels are so cute, so I hope you don’t mind me doing a similar card again.  Here’s a look at the card before pulling the pull tab and after pulling it.






I really wanted the squirrel on the log to disappear as if he was scared by the talking gourds and then reappear hanging upside down in the tree, but I just couldn’t figure out how to make that happen.  So instead, the second squirrel appears from the tree. 

I coloured all the images in with copic markers and cut them out. The trunk of the tree is from an Elizabeth Craft die set just called “Tree”. The leaf canopy was made by adding some Pixie Sparkles (in Copper Splash and Red Oxide) from Cosmic Shimmer, to a piece of white cardstock, and lightly spritzing with water to activate the powder. After it was dry, I added a little Distress Oxide ink in Mustard Seed to get a deeper yellow colour. I freestyle cut out the leafy shape. 

The grass was made by ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint and then I die cut it with a grassy border that is in the same Tree die set used for the tree. For the sky background, I used the Cloud Edger stencil from A Colorful Life Designs and some Colour Cloud ink in Clear Day from Cosmic Shimmer. 

My card is actually a 5 x 7” card, so to use the Swish ‘N Pop die, I had to extend the pull tab by doing some partial die cutting on the pull tab. I also modified the assembly in order to make the hanging squirrel appear from the left. Here’s how that looks:


Basically, I’ve reversed which hole the pull tab is attached to, in order to make it swing up from the left. I’ve added double layers of foam tape along the bottom, and wherever else I could to anchor the grassy border without interfering with the mechanism. Once I had the mechanism in place and adjusted to allow the second squirrel to hang down, I attached the grassy border and then the tree and remaining images. 

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a speech strip and adhered it above the gourds. I also stamped the inside sentiment which is from the Gourds stamp set. And then of course, I had to play with the card and watch the second squirrel come out! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day! 

Have a howly-Jowly Christmas


Hi, Margreet here and today I am posting a tag on the Gerda Steiner Designs blog.
I have made a tag with the clearstamp set Carol Puppies from Gerda Steiner Designs.
I printed, coloured with copics and fussy cut one of the dogs. The fur is made with puffy stuff. The dog is placed on a wobbler, so he can wobble. I made a short video to show this (click 2x).
The tag is made with a Craftables from Marianne Design. The smallest part is made with an embossing folder with music notes, for which I used Prize Ribbon distress ink from Tim Holz.
 
The sentiment is also from the set and is also stamped with Prize Ribbon and heatembossed twice with Prize Ribbon distress embossing glaze.
At the top a ribbon with music notes tied up with a  piece of blue scrapper's floss.
Hope you got inspired to use this fun set.
Have a great day!

Dog dressed ghost - Larissa

 


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today it it my turn again to post a project on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I have made a little box for halloween and I filled it with candy in a little bag. The box is decorated with the digital stamp Dog dressed as ghost from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I have fussy cut the image. 

The box is made from purple cardstock with the Silhouette cameo. I have decorated the box with black and white dotted paper from the Do what you love pretty paper block ( PK9149 - retired) from Marianne design. I have tied a white ribbon around it and then I glued it on the box. I have added the image with foamtape.

On the backside of the box I have added the black and white dotted paper again. I have rounded the corners from the paper with a corner punch. I have stamped a sentiment from the set Happy haunting from Mama elephant on white cardstock. I have die-cut the sentiment with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 33 from Crealies and then I glued it on the box. The box closes with a velcro circle.

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 and this time I have made a halloween card with the digital stamp You are my boo! ghost from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I have fussy cut the image.

With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 76 from Crealies I have cut a rectangle from white cardstock. I used Shaded lilac, Wilted violet, Dusty concord and Black soot Distress ink to create a background for my image. With the help of the Slimline halloween stencil (PS8108) from Marianne design and Versafine clair nocturne ink I added a couple of bats on the background. I used a White Posca pen to add paint splatters on the background. I have glued the background on a white card and then I added the image with foamtape on the card. I have coloured the ghost and all the bats with the Clear Spectrum noir sparkle glitter pen. I have cut the sentiment from white cardstock with the Smalt alfabet (D190603) from Gummiapan and then I glued it above and below the image on the card.

Sweet potato....!!

Hey friends...

I'm back with another card using the fun Yam's and Corn stamp set....

This one is a CAS design where I used a stencil on the card base to create some ink blended lines with CPD ink and then above I added the You're my sweet potato sentiment stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink!!
 
I stamped two Yams also with the same Memento ink and then coloured them with alcohol markers from Parkoo shop...

To finish the card off I added some sequins for a tiny little bit of bling!!

I hope you enjoyed this CAS design and feel inspired to get crafty...
Till next time, Hugs Ashlee

You're a-maize-ing....!!

  Hi friends...

I have some new inspiration for you today using the awesome new set Yams & Corn...

These corn images are just the cutest aren't they, such fun little characters I couldn't wait to colour them up and get them on a card!!

For this one I wanted to create a slimline card so I could fit on three of the sweet corns...


I coloured up all the images using Parkoo shop alcohol markers...

The background paper I made by stamping one of the stamps from the Yams and Corn set onto yellow cardstock with some CPD ink!!

The sentiment is embossed on black cardstock using WOW! Opaque bright white embossing powder, I love using this technique for sentiments on my cards...

(All the dies used to create this card are from Uniquely Creative)

I hope you enjoy this new card, I will be back with another card using this stamp set this week so keep an eye out for that too!!

Happy crafting, hugs Ashlee

You're special

Hi, Margreet here, and today I am posting a card on the Gerda Steiner Designs blog.
I am showing a card that I made with the digital stamp Cold Hedgehog.
I started with printing the digital stamp on Perfect Colouring Paper and then coloured it with copic markers. Then I fussy cut the image. With a white gelpen I have added dots on the cheeks and scarf of the hedgehog.
For the base I have used a black card and added a layer of orange/brown paper from the Basic Grey 6x6 scrapbook designer papers. I trimmed the borders with the Tim Holz deckled trimmer and distressed the edges with black soot distress ink.
The spider's web border was cut in black and placed underneath the hedgehog, who was glued with foamtape.
I stamped the text "You're special" (an old Hero Arts stamp) with the colour Habanero from Versafine. The borders were distressed with distress ink Black Soot.
Have a great day!
