Let's meet

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this fun card using the sweet little mouse from the Gerda Steiner Designs Fall Mice stamp set for the Spring and Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:

  • cut out a stitched rectangle from smooth white cardstock
  • stamp the coffee mug from the Gerda Steiner Designs You're koalified set and mask it, stamp the mouse from the Gerda Steiner Designs Fall Mice set and mask it as well, stamp the computer and the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Hello you set
  • color the scene with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers - add extra shading with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Zest-it
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • cut out a larger stitched rectangle from patterned paper and adhere all the layers onto a white cardbase

Enjoy the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Hugs,

Paper Pieced Vrooming By...

 Hello Everyone,

Its Hazel from Didos Designs here today with a card made using the sweet Vrooming By Stamp Set. 
I wanted to show you today what you can do using the stamps rather than the digi version of this card. I have paper pieced it so that the image matches the background papers.  

To paper piece you just stamp the image on the backing papers, fussy cut them, and then glue onto the main image picture and you have a well matched image and card. My image has some colouring using my promarkers on it too. 

Its just one of the ways that using an acrylic stamp can be different from just printing out the image and colouring in.  

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope I have inspired you to get paper piecing.

Love Hazelx

Have a ball!

Hi there,

it's Tanja her and I would like to show you another creation using the fabulous new Gerda Steiner Designs Dachshunds stamp set:

  • color one of the dogs and the ball from the Gerda Steiner Designs Dachshunds stamp set with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a damp watercolor brush
  • add color to the sentiment strip with Distress Ink Salty Ocean
  • cut out a stitched window from a stitched panel cut from Gmund Beer Paper Weizen
  • create a shaker element behind the window with the help of acetate, double-sided foam adhesive and Little Things from Lucy's Cards Diamonds Rainbow Bright
  • for the background behind the window apply Distress Ink Salty Ocean through the Create a Smile Focal Point stencil
  • adhere the panel to a grey cardbase after arranging the elements in front of the shaker window

Thanks for stopping by.
