Hi there,

it's Tanja here for you and I would like to show you this cute little card. I combined two stamp sets to create a little scene:

  • stamp the cute little dog from the Gerda Steiner Designs Howl are you stamp set and the butterfly from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Spring stamp set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) and color the images and the grass with Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • create a cloudy sky using Jaxell Soft Pastels, a cloud mask and a white pompom
  • add details with a white gel pen
  • cut out the "hi" directly from the stitched panel and cut it three more times from blue cardstock - layer the cardstock pieces on top of each other and puzzle them back into the die cut space
I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
