Home is where the Heart is

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this sweet card using the Gerda Steiner Designs Pigeons stamp set:

  • stamp one of the pigeons from the Gerda Steiner Designs Pigeons set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black
  • color the image with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers
  • add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and highlights with a white gel pen
  • add some shine with clear Wink of Stella
  • create a background on a panel cut from smooth white cardstock with the help of the Lawn Fawn Happy Village set - use the masking technique
  • color the image with Spectrum Noir Triblend markers and Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils as well
  • stamp the sentiment from that same Lawn Fawn set with Versafine Vintage Sepia
  • add strips of kraft cardstock to the left and right side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase



I hope you got inspired. 


Hugs,

Pigeon Acetate Bendy Card with *Video*

May 17, 2022

Hello everyone, it's Karen here again today.   I’ve got a fun new card fold idea for you today, using the adorable “Pigeons”stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs. This is a 5” x 7” card that folds flat, but pops out to create a 3D card when it comes out of the envelope. There’s room on the back of the card to write a message and to decorate if you want. I have to give a shoutout to Sam Calcott of...
