Miss You Day & Night

July 11, 2015


HELLO THERE! Madey here and it is my turn to takeover the blog today! If you don't already know, we are currently having a blog hop to show you what the latest stamp set going to look like! Since i am on the creative drive, i made an additional 2 cards using the same stamp but in different "weather".

I stamp the lying down bunny on white cardstock and coloured it using Copic markers. Fussy cut it out and lay in on my grass diecuts. I linked the background with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and MFT Sunburst Stencil. I wanted to create more layers because the whole card was looking a little flat, so i added a stitched cloud border die to mute the sunburst. Next, i stamped the "MISS YOU" sentiment on a piece of vellum but i had difficulty finding a way to hide the glue/pop dots. So i added another 2 smaller cloud and a felt heart shape sticker on top of the sentiment piece to hide the pop dots behind. Vellums are always nice to use, but i always have difficulty hiding the glue spots. Ok, so this sums up my making of the Miss You Day Card.

Moving on to the Miss You Night Card. I used embossing paste to run over a starry sky stencil on a piece of watercolour paper. After the paste is dried, i brushed a layer of water over it and used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush to added watercolours. I used mainly dark blues, purples and a slight tint of pink to create the night sky. Instead of fussy cutting out the bunny, i used a circle die cut to cut it out. Then i used my sponge dabbers to lightly dab on some Tumbled Glass and Seedless Preserves ink on the top edge. I ended off with stamping the stars, also provided in the new release stamp set, using a dark blue ink pad to create more starry skies for the bunny to gaze at. Lastly, the rest of the card is the same as the above Miss You Day Card.

Anyway, hope i had inspired you to do something Day and Night with your stamp set. Do share with us by tagging us on instagram (#gerdasteinerdesigns) or visiting us on our Facebook Page. :)
