A birthday tag with a cute cat - Larissa

April 25, 2018


 Goodmorning, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs with a new project. This friday my colleague Olivia will be celebrating her 18th birthday and I bought her a little present. I promised her a card, but instead of that I made a tag. ;) I hope she won't mind.


I made a tag and on the tag I used an adorable cat stamp from the set All cats from Gerda Steiner designs. I stamped the cat with versafine black ink on watercolour paper and then I embossed the image with clear embossingpowder. I have coloured the stamp with my new Derwent inktense paint pan travel set. I have fussy cut the image.


I have cut a large and small tag from watercolour cardstock with the Multi-frames die Tags 6 from Nellie Snellen and coloured those with my Tombow dual brush markers. I coloured with 2 shades of pink and a red marker on a sheet and sprayed it with water and then I placed the tag on the sheet. This way you get some nice shaed of pink and red on your tag. I have put the tags back in the dies and then I doodled the inside lines of the tags with a black fineliner on the tags. I have die-cut the name Olivia from black cardstock with the Cutaway alpha die from Waffleflower. On the small tag I stamped the sentiment gefeliciteerd (congratulations) from the stampset Bulletjournal - Tekst diversen from Craft emotions. I tied the tags together with a black ribbon.

Tigerkid and Monsterkid

October 15, 2018

Hi, Margreet here.
This is my second creation with the Gerda Steiner Designs Halloween Kids Digital Stamps Bundle.

I die cut the spider and its web and adhered this in the left corner.
Then I colored Tigerkid and Monsterkid with copics, and added some googly eyes.
The black cats (Joy!crafts) were die cut twice.
