Guest Designer Pri - Piggies On The Beach

June 10, 2017

Hello...Hope you're having a great day....Pri here as a guest designer today with two summer cards that I have made using the Pool Piggies stamp set...if you follow Gerda Steiner Designs on social media then you must have seen a lot of cute summery cards 'floating around' recently...(pun intended)..

For me summers means time to head to the beach as much as possible so the cards I'm sharing today have a beach theme...and looking through my DSP stash,I found a paper I had never used before and was perfect for the background of this card...

I die cut three strips of watercolor cardstock using wave border dies and then sponged in three different shades of Distress inks on them...I have used salty ocean,tumbled glass and broken china shades here...I also splattered a bit of water on these strips for a bit of interest..

I layered and adhered these waves to the printed DSP and used a pierced rectangle die to create a neat top layer...I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder...also I added a die cut sun and cloud to my card

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the two cute piggie friends and coloured then before cutting them out and placing them between the waves...finally,I adhered the top layer to a kraft cardstock card base and added a few tiny blue sequins to embellish my card...

Now my second card is a simple and quick one...I used a top folded white card base for this one and a white top layer as well...I have lightly sponged in some Distress inks on this top layer to create the background..I have used tumbled glass and twisted citron shades..

I cut a strip of watercolour cardstock and added a couple of blue shades from my Gansai Tambi watercolors and while wet,I covered it with cling wrap and set it aside to dry...I learnt this technique from a recent post by Jennifer McGuire...once dry,I die cut this panel using a wave border die and adhered it to the top layer...I then used a stitched rectangle die to cut off the excess from the top layer...

I die cut the word happy from a shimmery orange cardstock and stamped the word happy on a strip of the same paper and placed them on the card...I added the piggies on the card and added a few Nuvo drops to embellish my card..

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.
I stamped the images...

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

December 13, 2018

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...
