Some Fishy Love...

Hello!  It is Lisa Lahiff back today as a Guest Designer, and I'm so excited to get to share a project using the new Oh Manatee Stamp Set.  Now, I have to warn you that I went in a little direction with my project.  Rather than focusing on the large and super cute Manatee's in this set I decided to give the smaller stamps some love and the spotlight on my card...


To start I stamped my fish, sentiment, bubble, and seaweed onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  I then watercolored my images in with a mix of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush.  Once these were dry I added some masking fluid to them, as well as created some wave like squiggles to the background.  I was then able to go over the entire thing with a mix of blue markers and a water brush, again leaving time for everything to dry before I slowly peeled off the masking fluid.  I decided to cut the scene into a tag shape and added some white ribbon to the top.  While I was trying various patterned papers behind my tag I came across an old panel of Embossing Paste that I had placed in my scrap pile, and I really loved the way it looked behind my fish so I gave it a new home on my card!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope my card has inspired you to take a closer look at those smaller images in your set and give them a little love too!  And check out all of the cute sets available now in the Gerda Steiner Store, so much love to go around! :)

Happy Crafting!
Lisa

Hi, Margreet here.
I created a Rolodex card with the new sweet digital stamp Watermelon - Dinosaur from Gerda Steiner Designs.

 I recently made some prints with my Gelliplate. I found this print matching the dinosaur well and die cut a Rolodex card from it.

To finish off I drew a white outline and some watermelon seeds.
I stamped the text...

Birthday Bear Pop Up Box Card

July 15, 2020

Hello, it’s Karen here today and I’m back with another card featuring the Birthday Bear stamp set.  This is such a fun, festive stamp set and I thought these characters would go well in a pop up box card. I’ve kept the front of my card quite simple because the fun is really on the inside.





I’ve made a short video to show you how to make this card, so if you would like to see the video please CLICK...
