Hi there,

after this post you have seen all my creations with the wonderful images from the Gerda Steiner Designs December-January Digital-Stamp-Bundle. On this tag I used the sweet surprise image:

  • color the Gerda Steiner Designs Winter Girl image which is available as part of the December-January Digital-Stamp-Bundle with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • add highlights with a white gel pen and texture to the rim and the pompon of the cap with white Liquid Applique
  • cut out the snowy scene from the Create a Smile Frosty Fun Kit from watercolor paper
  • color this background with watered-down Distress Inks (Gathered Twigs, Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Iced Spruce)
  • use a generous amount of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter over that snowy hill
  • adhere the sweet girl with foam tape
  • cut out a stitched circle from white glitter cardstock and mount the snowy landscape onto that circle
  • punch out a little star at the top of the circle and thread some natural twine through it - tie one strand into a little bow

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

Meerkats on the Lookout!

February 23, 2020

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with one of Gerda Steiner Designs' newer stamp sets named, Meerkats on the Lookout! Isn't it super cute?



Per usual, I went first with a scene card because I wanted to use all the stamp images. I stamped everything out and masked everything as well because I wanted to do an ink blended background. I first blended browns and greens for the...
