First Christmas....!!

Hi everyone...
It's Ashlee here with you today and I have a card to share with you that I made using the super sweet stamp "Baby boy christmas"....
It's a fairly simple card really but I think it makes the image the absolute focal point of the card. 
First I coloured the background with some distress ink "Festive berries" and added some "Black soot" around the edges. I spritzed it with water for a splotchy effect, I just love the result you get when you do this technique!! 
Using the sentiment included in the stamp set I heat embossed it with some WOW white embossing powder.....
The image I coloured with Copics, cut it out and mounted it to the card with a double layer of foam tape for some nice dimension. 
To finish off the card some pretty sequins. 
There you have an easy christmas card perfect for a new baby's first christmas.
Merry Christmas everyone and a happy new year, stay safe... 
I will be back in the new year with some more Gerda Steiner inspiration for you all!!
Hugs Ashlee

Meerkats on the Lookout!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with one of Gerda Steiner Designs' newer stamp sets named, Meerkats on the Lookout! Isn't it super cute?



Per usual, I went first with a scene card because I wanted to use all the stamp images. I stamped everything out and masked everything as well because I wanted to do an ink blended background. I first blended browns and greens for the...
