Oh Manatee...Or Maybe Coffee?

September 10, 2018

Hi Everyone! It's Cathy here with a card using the 
 playful Oh Manatee stamp set. These guys have so much personality. 
Who doesn't love a big huggable manatee?!
 



I created a little habitat for him by die-cutting the background pieces and airbrushing a blue-green gradient with Copics. The Avery Elle waves die that I've used here is quite intricate, so it's easier to ink or airbrush the cardstock before die-cutting.
 
I've cut a few areas out of the waves background piece for open space to stamp the sentiments.
I colored all of the images from this stamp set with Copics and also used the coordinating dies to this set.
 
To bring the manatee up out of the scene just a bit and give him the appearance of floating along in the seaweed, I adhered him with dimensional foam tape.
 
Hope you enjoyed and happy crafting!
See you soon!
 
Cathy

Hi, Margreet here from Margreets-scrapcards.


I created a X-mas card with the sweet digital stamp Santa with a Sign
from Gerda Steiner Designs
Stamped the image and colored it with Copics, die cut it and attached it with foam on design papers.
Added Flowersoft on the fur parts.
The sentiment is made with a Sizzix cutting stencil.
It was fun creating with this lovely Santa. Hope you like it.

Hi there, Marilyn here and I hope all is well with you.
Today's card is my second post as guest designer with Gerda Steiner Designs and I was lucky enough to be given the cute Dachshunds clear stamp set to use.  Love these pups, especially the one with the flying ears... I keep looking at those ears and smiling.  Then I try to spell 'dachshunds' and have to look it up every time!  
There is a Dachsh...
