Penguin Love

Happy Friday! It's Cathy here sharing a card today using one of my favorite Gerda Steiner stamp sets. These Valentine Penguins are so cute and they're perfect for sending someone a little love any time of the year!
 

I started by die-cutting a piece of XPress It cardstock and a piece of Neenah Solar white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die and then cutting the XPIt cardstock down to 3 1/4" wide. It looks like the card front is one solid piece, but they're layered together.  I found it much easier to do it this way rather than taping off straight lines and I prefer to color with Copics on XPIt.
 
I set the Neenah piece aside and began working on my little scene by stamping the penguins in MFT Cement Gray ink and masking them. I then taped off a horizon line and masked the rest of the piece below it.
 
I airbrushed the sky on this with Copics in YR12, YR61, YR65, R21, and a little B00.
I wanted the clouds to look like hearts, so I die-cut a bunch of  small hearts from eclipse tape and randomly adhered them before airbrushing around them with the YR61.
 
 
 
I colored up the penguins and the rest of the scene with Copics and before I adhered it to the Neenah cardstock, I heat embossed a sentiment from this set on the Neenah.
 
Hope you enjoyed and have a great weekend!

I love this entire scene, but I LOVE that you made the clouds heart-shaped! So adorable.

Meerkats on the Lookout!

February 23, 2020

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with one of Gerda Steiner Designs' newer stamp sets named, Meerkats on the Lookout! Isn't it super cute?



Per usual, I went first with a scene card because I wanted to use all the stamp images. I stamped everything out and masked everything as well because I wanted to do an ink blended background. I first blended browns and greens for the...
