Guest designer - Pool piggies by Larissa Walgemoed (Part 4)

August 24, 2017

Hello everyone, it is Larissa with a another post on the Gerda Steiner designs blog. Today is my last post with a card made with the Pool piggies. I really had fun making these 4 cards with the Pool piggies. Thanks so much Gerda and Macy for asking me as a guestdesigner!



My last card is a shakercard. A pool piggie has to be in a swimming pool on a pool ring. For this card I stamped a piggie and the poolring from the stampset Pool piggies from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the images with my Polychromos pencils and then I fussy cut the images. I adhered them on top of each other with foamtape.



From white cardstock I cut a rectangle panel with a square hole in it with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 44 & 50 from Crealies. I adhered a piece of plastic sheet behind the window. On a piece of cardstock I made a background with the following colours of distress ink: Tumbled glass, Broken china, Salty ocean and Mermaid lagoon distress ink. Then I went over the background again with Mermaid lagoon distress ink and the Curved lines stencil from Create a smile. This way I got a pretty water background. I adhered foamtape on the white panel and filled my shaker with Sparkling clear sequins 3mm from Pretty pink posh and Blue sequins from Witte boekhandel (a Dutch store). I adhered the white panel on a red card. The sentiment is from the set Pool piggies from Gerda Steiner designs and I stamped it below the shakerpart. Then I adhered the piggy onto the swimming pool and my card is done.

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Monster Fun. This is such a fun set that I haven't used in awhile and I always love pulling out older sets.


Since there are three monsters in this set, I pulled out a Slimline Staggered Rectangledie to be my base for this card. I cut it out of gold, black and white cardstock. I used the gold...
