Hi There...

It's Christine here today (from Cards by Christine) - and I have the honour of having been asked to Guest Design here at Gerda Steiner!  Of course, I quickly agreed - and so today I'm sharing my first make.

I chose to use an image from All Cats - which is a fab set of three lovely fur babies, along with sentiments to match.


I firstly coloured the image with my Copics - and tried to give the look of fur by using lots of short strokes in different shades of Cool Grey.  Then I fussy cut the image, and adhered it to the plain pink square using 3D foam pads, after previously shaping the image slightly with a large embossing ball.  I used a square stitched frame so the the kitty could be peeking out with her gift....  and her tail could be outside of the frame.

Hope you like what I did...  I'll be back with another make soon.

Happy Crafting..

Take a piece of white card and cut it using the same stitched rectangle die. Then using the stitched...

Hello Spring...


Hi Lovelies..  
Today I'm Guest Designing for the wonderful Gerda Steiner Designs. and I've chosen to use this uber-cute bunny from the Hello Spring Stamp Set - as Spring (especially here in the UK) is just around the corner.
I used a cloud stencil and some Distress Inks to create the sky background - then used some post it tape to give a clear line so I could sponge the grass - again...
