Caroling Cats by Ildi

Hello everyone, my name is Ildi from Hungary and I’m super excited and feel honored to be guest designing for Gerda Steiner Designs this month.

I'm sharing my home and my life with three cats and three dogs and at tis beautiful time of the year I used to create many cards with them, partly because it's so much fun and partly because I can support animal rescue by donating papercraft goodies.

For my first card I used the adorable clear stamp set Carol Kitten. First I stamped the images onto a piece of masking paper and fussy cut them. I continued with stamping the kitten onto a marker friendly paper: I went from right to left making sure to cover them with the matching masking paper before stamping the next one. 

The rest is the fun fun fun colouring. I added a street lamp and some trees with just a few lines and generously covered them with snow for which I usually use a white gelly pen. It gives a cool winter effect and it covers all the imperfections of the colouring too. 

For finishing my card I attached my front panel onto a red card base. 

Thank you for reading my post, I hope you like it.

Hi Ildi! Beautiful card!!!! May I ask how you did the background? How did you get the white shading over the trees? Watercolor? I’m stumped:(

 Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this vibrant Birthday tag using the Gerda Steiner Designs Birthday Bear stamp set:

  • stamp the bear hand with the balloon from the Gerda Steiner Designs Birthday Bear set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black 
  • color the image with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell...

 Hey friends...

I've got some inspiration to share today using the gorgeous Gerda Steiner designs stamp set called Happy bee-day....

It's such a sweet set, one I've used many times hehe!!

To create this card I started with a white cardstock base which I masked off an oval shape and inked up using Distress oxide ink Prize ribbon. I then removed the mask and stamped a bunch of the flower images!
