Miss You Puppy Card by Karla

January 27, 2019

Hello friends! Karla back today with a cute Missing You card using the adorable new digital image 'Miss You Puppy' from the Gerda Steiner Designs shop. This little cutie could work equally well for a thank you, love you or pup-tastic birthday card, but I chose a miss you brush lettering sentiment stamp from my stash to add on top of the Pinkfresh Indigo Hills patterned paper, embossed with Emerald Creek Magical Mysteries Embossing Powder in Dragon's Egg. The subtle striped heart is diecut with a MFT die, which I used inside a stitched circle and layered over a pretty white doily.

It was easy to give this little guy a pretty patterned bed by simply printing out an extra digi stamp on another piece of white copy paper and then gluing the purple patterned paper directly on top of the image. I then ran the whole page through the printer again and fussy cut out around the bed before gluing it down to the image printed on cardstock. I coloured this guy in with Copics and Prismacolor Markers and shaded the patterned paper to give a bit of depth. A white gel pen adds some highlights, and I added some Paige Evans stickers and Maya Road twine for embellishments.

Inside, I stamped a heartfelt sentiment on my kraft cardstock base with Distress Oxide Inks. I just love how they show up on darker cardstocks!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic weekend and a wonderful week ahead Be sure to head over to the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop to see what inspires you to create today!

I wanted a softer look for this card so rather then stamping with black ink onto white paper, I used gray...

Wishing You a Very Happy Easter

March 22, 2019

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...
