Guest designer - Pool piggies by Larissa Walgemoed (Part 2)

August 10, 2017

Hi everyone, it is Larissa with a another post on the Gerda Steiner designs blog. So happy to be back again today! Today I am showing you another card that I made with the cute Pool piggies!



My card from today is a pretty easy one, but because of all the colouring I had to do, it took a while to finish. On a piece of white cardstock I stamped a couple of sunbathing piggies from tehe stamp set Pool piggies from Gerda Steiner designs and then I masked the piggies and stamped the bath towels. I have coloured all images with my Polychromos pencils. I have used many bright happy colours to give the card a nice siummer feeling. I have die-cut the cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 52 from Crealies and then I adhered the rectangle with foamtape on a kraft card. On a piece of black cardstock I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and then I embossed it with white embossingpowder. I have cut the sentiment into a banner shape and then I added faux stitching with a white gelpen.

How sweet are these little bunnies? I just love then and was so excited to use them to make a friendship thank you card. But I wanted to do somthing a little different.

I wanted a softer look for this card so rather then stamping with black ink onto white paper, I used gray...

Wishing You a Very Happy Easter

March 22, 2019

Happy Friday! It's finally Spring!! Easter will be here soon and I just love this bunny from the new Easter Bunnies stamp set.

First, I created a background for the bunny by die-cutting a large egg and inking a few clouds and grass with Distress Inks.

For a little extra interest, I adhered the egg to a piece of white cardstock slightly overlapping the edge and then die-cut using a stitched rectangle...

Hello and happy Thursday Crafty Friends!  Tina here from Cards and Coffee Time with a fun tutorial to share with you.  I am hopping down the bunny trail this month with the too cute Bunny Friends stamp set.
