Guest Designer - Thinking of YOU-CALYPTUS by Francine

February 16, 2017

Hi everyone! Francine from www.1001cartes.ch here! I’m thrilled to be guesting again for Gerda Steiner Designs. Since 2014, I join Gerda for a few extra spots each year and I enjoy it so much! Gerda’s stamps are extra sweet, aren’t they?

Today, I’m showcasing the You’re Koalafied stamp set and here is what I came up with: 




Oh my… this set is the cutest! I couldn’t resist doing a card with these sweet koalas. I went for a clean and simple scene. I first created a sky background on a top-folded card base. I sponged blue Distress ink over a cloud border that I used as a mask. I stamped the koala hanging in the Eucalyptus on white cardstock in black ink. I then masked the koala and stamped the image again. I drew the missing lines with a black pen. It’s a perfect way to stretch a stamp and get two images from one stamp. So there I had an Eucalyptus with a koala and one without koala. I went ahead and colored the images and cut them out with scissors. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on top of the clouds and adhered the images with foam pads to the card base for more dimension. I trimmed the excess that extended over the sides of the panel. To finish off the card, I glued a tiny red heart below the sentiment. Yes... a tiny (red) heart is always somewhere on my cards LOL! 


Here is the adorable set I used: 



I hope you enjoyed this card inspiration! I will be back later this month with a second card. Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting…
