Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Santa with Letters. It's such a cute set that you can do a bunch of things with (I have a couple more ideas).
The first project I wanted to create was, of course, a holiday card. I stamped out the Santa first and colored it up with Copics. Since this Santa is holding a banner, I wanted to stamp up a custom sentiment. For this card, I went with a simple "Happy" to pair with the larger sentiment in the set, "Holidays".
I added the Santa right in front of the circle and then stamped out the "Holidays" sentiment in a green ink matching the copic colored letters on the banner. After this, I thought I would be finished with the card but I thought it needed some finishing touches. I added additional white dots with a white gel pen to the background to make it a really snowy background. I also used some glue on the edges of the snow banks so I could adhere some glitter to it to add a little something extra to the card overall.
I love how it turned out. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!

Hello everyone, it's Karen here today. I was totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s recent video on making simple pendulum cards. It was sheer genius and the minute I saw it, I thought about using her technique with Gerda Steiner's pigeons. If you haven’t seen Jennifer’s video, here’s a link to it - Cards with Simple Movement.
Now, I know this is not your typical wedding card, but it is a fun...
