Summer Fun

Hi there,

it's Tanja here again and I created this Summer Fun project using images created by the wonderful Gerda Steiner.


  • color the Gerda Steiner Designs Watermelon Kid and the Gerda Steiner Designs Bear with Watermelon with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils and Zest-it
  • cut put some Polaroids using patterned paper from the Echo Park Summer Bliss 6x6 paper pad and one of the My Favorite Things Polaroids dies
  • dry emboss a stitched piece of Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock with the Tim Holtz Ringer embossing folder for extra dimension
  • add another strip of patterned paper underneath the pictures and adhere all the layers to a cardbase
  • add the sentiment created with a Dymo Label Maker


Have a sunny day.

Yours,

Stuck with you

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I would like to show you this project. And who would have thought that you could make a GSD-card without a cute critter on it:

  • color the cactus from the Gerda Steiner Designs Kitten in Flowerpot image which is available as part of the Gerda Steiner Designs Spring Digital Stamp Bundle with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • add Wink of Stella clear glitter to the little pink flowers
  • use a piece of double-sided foam tape to adhere it onto a patterned paper cluster - the patterned paper is from the Maja Design Denim & Friends 6x6 paper pad and the doily was cut out using the Tim Holtz Doily
  • stamp the sentiment from the My Favorite Things Sweet Succulents set onto a strip of patterned paper from the same paper pad with Versafine (Vintage Sepia) - ink up the edges of the strip with that same brown ink as well
  • use cream cardstock as a cardbase

Until next time.

Yours,

Guest Designer - Wow! How Old? by Francine Vuillème


Hi crafters! Francine (from www.1001cartes.ch) here! I’m thrilled to be guesting again this month!


Today, I’m showcasing the Go Wild! stamp set and here is what I came up with: 





I created a little scene using different elements. First, I colored the giraffe and cut out the image with scissors. I then stamped the glasses. Actually, the glasses are binoculars but I went out of the box and used them as glasses. They are part of another image in the same set. I cut them out and fixed them on top of the giraffe. Isn’t the giraffe funny with the glasses? Next, I created a rooftop with woodgrain patterned paper. The chimney is from the Up On the Housetop set. The sentiments are from the Go Wild! and the Moody Unicorns sets.

Here is the stamp sets I used:

    



I hope you enjoyed this card inspiration! Have a wonderful day…

Francine
