Non-red Valentine's cards!

January 27, 2016

Hi there!

It's Yolanda here, from Scraping Time. I imagine all of you making Valentine's cards! I love this kind of cards but this year, I decided to try new colours apart from red or pink for my Valentine's!! What about brown??

For my cards, I have used some stamps from different sets:


Let me show you the first one! Since I saw the bulldog I fell in love to it!! It seems to be so sad and angry and I feel like hugging and sending some love!! That's why I decided to make a card with soft colours and a big heart!!


I love small stamps to make backgrounds and you have three of them in this set. They are adorable! With the cute bones I made a heart. Firstly, I draw a soft line with my pencil using a heart die. Then, I stamped the dog and masked it with masking paper because I wanted to hide two of the bones behind the legs. Then I stamped the whole heart and erased the pencil. I stamped the sentiment and coloured the bones and dog with Spectrum Noir markers.  A bit of Glossy Accent on the nose and that's all!!  I hope he feels better now!! ;) But just in case... I stamped a cute sentiment from one of the new stamp sets into the card.  


I love the sketch look of the "Ruff day?" sentiment.


Then, I played a little bit with the cute ducks from one of the new stamps sets that you can find on the shop. I think I will use this set a lot in spring and summer but I wanted to give it a try just now. 


I love paper piecing and it´s very easy to fussy cut these ducks. I made the sea background with distress inks, water and a piece of acetate. Then I used a wood decorated paper and some brads for my panel. I love the font from the sentiment. It is so nice!


I hope you enjoyed my cards for today and see you soon!!

If you are here, I am sure that you really enjoy with Gerda Steiner Designs' products so it could be a great opportunity to apply for being a Guest Designer on March!
