Bugs and Kisses....!!

Bugs and Kisses....!!

Hey crafty friends...

I'm back with another card made using the awesome new Ladybugs stamp set by Gerda Steiner designs!! It's a super adorable set so I couldn't resist making another card using them....



I started with a piece of white cardstock and then used a mix of distress oxide inks to create a pretty blend of colour. I then added some splatters using an opaque white paint mixed with a little water....

Using another piece of cardstock I used some of the same oxide ink colours and did a bit of a blend so I could die cut the sentiment HUGS. I also die cut the sentiment from a piece of black foam so that I could glue it to the back of the cardstock cut out giving it nice sturdy dimension!!





I die cut a tag along frame by Heffy doodle from Neenah desert storm cardstock and threaded in a piece of white/black twine before adding foam tape on the back and adhering to the base...

The Hugs sentiment was then adhered to the frame...

I added a sub sentiment by using WOW! Opaque bright white embossing powder on black cardstock (The bugs and kisses sentiment is included in the ladybugs stamp set). Once I embossed it I fussy cut around it and adhered to the card base also using foam tape...

Time for some cute little ladybugs of course...

I stamped/coloured and fussy cut three of the ladybugs and then found them a home just above the large sentiment. To finish it all off a touch of shiny sequins!!


Thanks for checking out my latest card, I hope you feel inspired to get your crafty goodies out and get creative. Happy crafting, hugs Ashlee.

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, What's up?. It's such a cute set with four different animals and I love their expressions!

Hello everyone, it's Karen here again today.   I’ve got a fun new card fold idea for you today, using the adorable “Pigeons”stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs. This is a 5” x 7” card that folds flat, but pops out to create a 3D card when it comes out of the envelope. There’s room on the back of the card to write a message and to decorate if you want. I have to give a shoutout to Sam Calcott of...
