VIDEO: Masking & the MISTI featuring Blast Off & Alien Invasion

June 10, 2016

Hi, everyone!  It's Tara from Curl E. Cue's and I am so excited to be sharing my very first project as part of the Gerda Steiner Designs design team!!  I just love coloring all of the adorable images and am so happy to be joining this talented group!


For my first project I created a set of cards using the cute little alien that is featured in both the Blast Off and Alien Invasion stamp sets.  To me, he looks like a little alien gummy bear - especially after I colored him all up in rainbow colors!  I used my MISTI to help me create six cards with the same one-layer design and used some full-adhesive Post-It notes to create little masks.


I stamped everything on Bristol Smooth White card stock so I could color it all in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers (I'm kind of obsessed with those at the moment).  


I think the best part of these cards is the story they tell.  By finishing off the inside of the card it created a fun finish to the card by letting you know that little gummy bear alien got his cake!!  


If you're interested in learning more about how I created these cards, check out the video tutorial!  I can't wait to see you again with more fun projects!  Thanks so much and have a fabulous weekend!  Bye!

Hi everyone...

It's Ashlee here with you today and I have a card to share with you that I made using the super sweet stamp "Baby boy christmas"....

It's a fairly simple card really but I think it makes the image the absolute focal point of the card. 


First I coloured the background with some distress ink "Festive berries" and added some "Black soot" around the edges. I spritzed it with water for a...
