Ginger Bread Couple

October 08, 2016

Hey everyone,
it's Maike again and I would love to share a card with you using the new Snow Angel set.


First I stamped and coloured two of the cute ginger bread men, colouring one a little darker than the other. That one was supposed to become the male, so I coloured his accents in a teal colour and the lighter one - the girl - got the red accents ;o) Next I fussy cut them out, which took almost no time at all, and painted their edges black to make it look like I had cut them out perfectly ;o) Now it was time to give the cute couple a place to "sit", so I die cut a rectangle from some patterned paper and die cut a circle from that. I marked down on the card base where the opening was going to be with a pencil and stamped the circle sentiment in place. ("Frohe Weihnachten" is German for "Merry Christmas".)


When I placed the patterned paper over the circle again, the white from the background felt too bright, so I decided to take some "Candied Apple" Distress Ink and sponge some on the inside of the circle. That was a lot better ;o) I used foam tape to glue the paper to the card base, added a red frame around the window to match the colour on the inside and place the ginger bread couple inside. I glued one of them directly to the card, the other one is raised up with foam tape. In order to bring some red to the patterned paper as well I used a red marker to highlight some parts of the Christmas carol and also used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen to add some shimmer to the red frame. Unfortunately it is really hard to see in the pictures though.


I hope you have enjoyed this Christmas card even though it is only October. ;o)
Have a fabulous weekend and happy crafting,
Maike

Winter Shaker Card feat Gerda Steiner Designs

Hi everyone! It's Laura here and today I am back with a post and a video in which I will show you how to create a snow globe shaker card. I chose the sentiment so that this could be a card good for any occasion, but you can easily switch that and turn this into a winter birthday card, for example.

The stamp set I used today is the Gerda Steiner Designs Snowman Friends stamp set.

Hi, Margreet here from Margreets-scrapcards.


I created a X-mas card with the sweet digital stamp Santa with a Sign
from Gerda Steiner Designs
Stamped the image and colored it with Copics, die cut it and attached it with foam on design papers.
Added Flowersoft on the fur parts.
The sentiment is made with a Sizzix cutting stencil.
It was fun creating with this lovely Santa. Hope you like it.

Dachshunds

Hi there, Marilyn here and I hope all is well with you.
Today's card is my second post as guest designer with Gerda Steiner Designs and I was lucky enough to be given the cute Dachshunds clear stamp set to use.  Love these pups, especially the one with the flying ears... I keep looking at those ears and smiling.  Then I try to spell 'dachshunds' and have to look it up every time!  
There is a Dachsh...
