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..

Puppies' Boxing Day by Ildi

December 07, 2019

A happy hello to everyone, it's Ildi again with another festive card. This time I used a pack of sweet doggies from the set Christmas Puppies.



I stamped three different dogs from the stamp set onto masking paper and fussy cut them. Using the masks I slightly sketched the trio of pups before stamping them onto a piece of marker friendly paper. I coloured everything with my Copics and created an...

Let it snow

December 05, 2019

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...
