Guest Designer Kimberly- Let's Hang at the Pool

May 21, 2017

Hi Everyone, Kimberly from Kimberly's Crafty Spot.
Today I am sharing a fun card as a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.

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.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

To cut the icicle die from Joy!crafts I used some blue glitter foam and attached it at the top of the card.
Then I cut some snow with Crealies...
