A birthday tag with a cute cat - Larissa

April 25, 2018 0 Comments


 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.

 Hello Everyone,

Its Hazel from Didos Designs here today with a card made using the sweet Vrooming By Stamp Set. 
I wanted to show you today what you can do using the stamps rather than the digi version of this card. I have paper pieced it so that the image matches the background papers.  

To paper piece you just stamp the image on the backing papers, fussy cut them, and then glue onto the main image...
