Guest Designer Kimberly- Let's Hang at the Pool
May 21, 2017
from Kimberly's Crafty Spot.
Today I am sharing a fun card as a Guest Designer for
Gerda Steiner Designs
(This blog post contains affiliate links.

For my card, I made a gel card for the cute piggy from the
Pool Piggies 4x6 clear stamp set
to float in on her little pool floatie.
I started the card with a white rectangle, then I die cut a rounded rectangle from it and also embossed the edge of the rectangle. Then I stamped the cute pig and colored her with copic markers, I paper pieced her bikini, pool float, towel and ball from the Sunkissed 6x6 Doodlebug paper. Next, I added some glossy accents to her sunglasses and the ball. Then I stamped the sentiment from the set on the towel and heat embossed it in clear.
Next, I made the 'pool water' portion of the pool. I used a small snack size ziplock bag, I cut it down to size and sealed it with my fuse tool. Then I added some heart and star sequins to the bag then some blue hair gel, then more sequins and again until my bag was full enough.
Then I adhered the bag to the backside of the die cut rectangle panel, then added that to a white card base with foam adhesive. Next, I added the cute pig and ball to the water panel, then the towel with the sentiment to the bottom right corner. Finally, I added some glossy accents around the card to look like water droplets.
The card is so fun, if someone presses on the gel it moves just like water and the cute pig goes up and down. I hope you were inspired by my card, I know I am ready for summer and some fun pool time!
Thanks to Gerda and Macy for giving me the opportunity to be a guest designer again, I am honored.

Hello everyone, my name is Ildi from Hungary and I’m super excited and feel honored to be guest designing for Ger
da 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.
Let it snow

Hi, Margreet here.
I have made a wintercard with the lovely new digi '
Snowman and birds
' from Gerda Steiner Designs.
I started with embossing of the base card.
Then I printed the digi, colored it with copics and die cut with a square stiched die from Crealies.
I added some lovely, tiny trees (dies from Joy!crafts) and glued all on the base card.
For the final touch I adhered 'Let it snow' ribbon from...
