I ruff you - Larissa

September 12, 2018 1 Comment


Goodmorning, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious  and today I am posting a new card on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. Today I made a tiny card. About a year ago I bought some little envelopes in other than normal sizes and this card has the perfect size for one of the envelopes. The front of the card is 7 by 14 cm.


On my card from today I have used an image from the stampset Dachshunds from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the little dog with my Polychromos pencils and then I have fussy cut the image. On a white card I adhered a layer of red design paper from the Gingham-linen rainbow petite prints from Doodlebug. Then I added another layer of white cardstock. With a black pen I have drawn a frame on the white cardstock and then I made a background with Tumbled glass distress ink. I have diecut a couple of hearts from red, grey and black design paper from the Gingham-linen rainbow petite prints from Doodlebug with the Mini hearts set from Simons says stamp and I glued those with foamtape above the nose of the dog. The sentiment is from the set Dachshunds from Gerda Steiner designs. I have fussy cut the words and then I added them with foamtape on the card.

Wishing You a Very Happy Easter

Happy Friday! It's finally Spring!! Easter will be here soon and I just love this bunny from the new Easter Bunnies stamp set.

First, I created a background for the bunny by die-cutting a large egg and inking a few clouds and grass with Distress Inks.

For a little extra interest, I adhered the egg to a piece of white cardstock slightly overlapping the edge and then die-cut using a stitched rectangle...

Hello and happy Thursday Crafty Friends!  Tina here from Cards and Coffee Time with a fun tutorial to share with you.  I am hopping down the bunny trail this month with the too cute Bunny Friends stamp set. I love scene building and today I kept the background pretty soft and spring time-ish:) I used a die for my fence background, but in the tutorial I show how you can re-create one using 1/4"...
