Guest Designer: Safari Race card: how many animals fit in a land cruiser?

May 25, 2017 5 Comments

Hello everyone! I'm Sandy Allnock - and I'm excited to pop over for a guest post here. I'm a coloring fanatic....and as you know, the Gerda Steiner stamp sets are MADE for coloring!

I've had my eye on the Go Wild stamp set for a bit....I wanted to create a "race" card...and see just how many wild animals I could fit into the land cruisers on just one card. I added the Party Animals just for kicks - to make it truly nutty! The little person is just a spectator...and I really hope he stays out of the way when the race comes by!

In the video I show you a quick walk-through of how I layered the images. In general, when masking - start with the image in the front and work your way backwards from there. To create room for the dust, wipe off stamps to remove some ink before stamping.

 Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
Wasn't that just a blast!? The kittywompus cars filled with animals and happy color were just so enjoyable to color.

Hope you enjoyed this little project and might try something like it yourself sometime...and be sure to pop over and subscribe to my blog or YouTube, too, I've got more Gerda Steiner stamps in the queue coming up soon! Sandy

Sandy, I bought these sets when I saw your beautiful artwork. All of your work that I see on YouTube is incredible. I have a number of Gerda Steiner’s adorable stamp and die sets. They are great for Cards for Hospitalized Kids cards.

 Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this vibrant Birthday tag using the Gerda Steiner Designs Birthday Bear stamp set:

  • cut out a Clearly Besotted Stamps Rounded Tag from smooth white cardstock
  • stamp the bear hand with the balloon from the Gerda Steiner Designs Birthday Bear set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black 
  • color the image with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell...

 Hey friends...

I've got some inspiration to share today using the gorgeous Gerda Steiner designs stamp set called Happy bee-day....

It's such a sweet set, one I've used many times hehe!!

To create this card I started with a white cardstock base which I masked off an oval shape and inked up using Distress oxide ink Prize ribbon. I then removed the mask and stamped a bunch of the flower images!
