Naughty or Nice? - Simon Says Stamp

November 28, 2017

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and a while back I had the huge honor to publish this cute little Christmas Card for Gerda Steiner Designs on the Simon Says Stamp Blog:
Gerda came out with some fabulous new Christmas Stamp Sets this year. There really is something for everyone: Christmas Puppies, a cute Reindeer, more Reindeer, a sweet Snowman, baking Mice and Christmas Kitties.
Of course, I had to use one of the fun little cats, for I have four wonderful cats myself.




  • stamp the cute little cat and the bauble from the Gerda Steiner Designs Christmas Kitties set with Versafine Onyx Black and color the image with Derwent Inktense pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • stamp the twig from that same stamp set with Versafine Olympia Green 
  • add highlights with a white gel pen and some sparkle with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
  • apply Distress Oxide Ink Broken China through the Tim Holtz Stripes Layering Stencil to create a background
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black
  • adhere the stitched focal panel to another stitched panel cut from patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Sugar Plum 6x6 paper pad before adhering all the layers to a white cardbase

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

Winter Shaker Card feat Gerda Steiner Designs

Hi everyone! It's Laura here and today I am back with a post and a video in which I will show you how to create a snow globe shaker card. I chose the sentiment so that this could be a card good for any occasion, but you can easily switch that and turn this into a winter birthday card, for example.
