Hi crafty friends, Noga here and I am so happy to share with you another project for Gerda Steiner Designs today.
Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Melon Friends. It is such a cute summery set that I just thought it was perfect for a picnic scene.
Using a spring scene builder stencil, I created a super simple background of a tree and the grassy area for the picnic table to sit. It was so easy to do and then I added some blue into the sky to add some color. Finishing off the card, I just added the sentiment in the sky to fill up that space. That little bear is so freaking cute, isn't he?
Hi and welcome, it’s Karen here today. I have a really quick and easy card today made with the brand new stamp set “Grow Happiness” from Gerda Steiner Designs. This set is full of plants and one little kitten that managed to sneak into a flower pot, as well as some sweet sentiments.
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 stamped an image from the set Frogs clear stamps from Gerda Steiner designs with Versafine clair nocturne inkt on Aquarelpapier smooth Wit 200g A6 from Vaessen creative and then I embossed the image with clear embossingpowder. I have coloured the image with Distress inks and then I have fussy cut the image.
I have made a mini slimline card and I glued patterned paper from the Tiny check paper pad from My favorite things on it, after I first cut a circle out of it with a die from the set Love2craft cutting dies from Action. I have wrapped white embroidery thread around the patterned paper. I have doodled lines on the patterned paper with a black fineliner I have glued the frog inside the circle with foamtape. With the Smile large sentiment dies (retired) from Stamping bella I have cut the word smile three times from black cardstock and after I glued the words on top of each other and then I glued them on the card.
Ashlee here with another card to share with you and this one is a slimline with the super duper cute chickens from the "Chicken scratch" stamp set....
I just love this set, it is SO much fun to use!!
Once I removed the mask I stamped a sentiment underneath the gingham from the same stamp set chicken scratch!!
I then added a tower of chickens that I coloured using Parkoo shop alcohol markers...
This completed the slimline card, I hope you like it!!
Until my next post, happy crafting my friends...
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 digital stamp Picnic penguin from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and a black glaze pen and then I have fussy cut the image.
I have die-cut a grass edge from white cardstock with a die from the set Snijmallen Slimline randen 3 Gras & wolken (CDSN-0091) from Carlijn Design. I have coloured the grass with Card deco essential dye ink Olive green. I used the same ink and also Rustic wilderness Distress ink to add paint splatters on the grass. I have made a stencil with a cloud die from the set Snijmallen Slimline randen 3 Gras & wolken (CDSN-0091) from Carlijn Design and made a cloudy background with the Card deco essential dye ink Light blue. I glued the grass on the cloudy background and then I glued this background on a white card. I have used foamtape to glue the image on the card. I have stamped a sentiment from the set Simple script (retired) from Clearly besotted next to the image, I have dry embossed two lines above and belowe the image.
Hey crafty friends...
It's Ashlee here and today I'm sharing a card using the adorable bear from the "Birthday bear" stamp set!!
I coloured him up using Parkoo shop alcohol markers then fussy cut him before adding it to the card base....
Once I set up scene in pencils, I stamped out the images onto the card and then used a copic friendly pen to draw in the lines and stamped all images I wanted to use. I almost used all the images from this set except for one and two of the sentiments.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
Hi and happy Wednesday everyone. It’s Karen here today and I want to share a card made with a brand new stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs called Melon Friends. This is such a cute stamp set as you can see from the little critters on my card and it will be available in the Gerda Steiner Designs shop tomorrow!
To make this card, I drew a rough watermelon (just an oval with a round end), and when I had it looking the way I wanted it, I went over my pencil lines with a copic marker. After colouring it in with copic markers, I fussy cut it out right against the coloured line. I stamped and copic coloured almost all the images in the stamp set and cut them out.
Next, I diecut a lattice background frame from white and black cardstock. I paper pieced the black pieces into the small oval shapes, gluing them in place. Any cover die would work here or just leave the card as it is - the die is hardly noticeable. I then glued the lattice frame down to my card base. I had made a mask of the little bear image, and I placed this where I wanted it to go on the watermelon. I was hoping it would look like he was inside the watermelon to match the sentiment, but I was also conscious that inside the card, his body would have to be able to fit towards the bottom of the card. Now here’s the scary part - I fussy cut out the bear image through all the layers of cardstock. If you have the dies, this would be much easier! I started in the middle of the bear’s head and cut out to the edge. It got a little dicey around the ears, but I was fairly happy in the end. I went around the cut edge with the same red copic marker I had used for the watermelon to give it a smoother look. Now, the easier way to have done this, would be to stamp, colour and cut out a second bear head and then just glue that to the front of the card. But that’s hindsight at work ...! :)
I spread glue across the back of my coloured bear image, held him up to the inside of the card, and once I had his head lined up with the opening in the watermelon, I carefully pressed him down to the inside of the card so he was positioned correctly. I added the watermelon border just underneath him on the inside. On the front of the card, I attached the dinosaur with foam tape and glued the rinds just under the bear. The sentiment is stamped and embossed in black, and popped up on foam tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day!
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. I have made a card with the one of the sweet frogs from the set Frogs clear stamps from Gerda Steiner designs. I have stamped the image with Versafine clair nocturne inkt on Aquarelpapier smooth Wit 200g A6 from Vaessen creative and then I embossed the image with clear embossingpowder. I have coloured the image with my Derwent inktense pencils and then I have fussy cut the image.
On a white card I have made paint splatters with the black Posca pen and then I doodled lines around the edges of the card with a black fineliner. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 33 from Crealies I have die-cut a circle from orange patterned paper from the Take note paperpad from Doodlebug. I used the Crea-nest-lies XXL 92 from Crealies to cut a larger circle from black cardstock and then I glued the orange circle on top of it and then I glued them both on the card. With the Stitched alphabet die-namics from My favorite things I have die-cut the word Hoera (hurray) three times from black cardstock. I glued all the letters on top of each other and then I glued the word on the circle. I used foamtape to glue the image on the card. I have stamped a sentiment (congrats) from the set Stempels "Grote teksten 4" from Carlijn design under the word hoera. I have cut a couple of stars from black cardstock with the Star confetti die from Alexandra Renke and I added those on the card.
Hello, Margreet here.
I made this card with Make a Wish Mouse Blowing out Birthday Cake Candle for Gerda Steiner Designs.
On the tag I have used one of the frogs from the set Frogs clear stamps from Gerda Steiner designs. I have stamped the image with Versafine clair nocturne ink on Aquarelpapier smooth Wit 200g A6 from Vaessen creative 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.
The tag is cut from dark brown cardstock with the dies from the set Big labelzz & tagzz Rough edges (CLBigLT19) from Crealies. I have cut the layer on top of it from flower patterned paper from the Bundle of joy paperpad from Echo park. I used the die set to cut a little rectangle strip from the dark brown cardstock and glued it on the tag together with the frog. I have glued a little pink enamel heart on. With the Simply said hugs die (retired) from Avery elle I have cut the word Hugs three times from the darkbrown cardstock. I glued them on top of each other and the I glued the word on the tag.
