Reindeer Fun!

Hello!  This is Lisa Lahiff from Lisa's Creative Niche, and I'm so happy to be back as a Guest Designer.  It's been a while, but I couldn't wait to get crafty with some of the newer Gerda Steiner goodies, and in particular the Reindeer and a Tree Stamp Set...


I just love the reindeer faces!!!  So fun and each one different!  I also loved the idea of Santa reaching to put the star onto of the tree.  To create this card I started by stamping, coloring, and cutting out the reindeer and Santa.  Next, I worked on the background by stamping the tree and coloring it all in.  Finally, I adhered the reindeer, Santa, and the Christmas ornaments before going back to add snowflakes with a White Gel Pen.


Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my post.  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with those you love!

And as always, Happy Crafting!
Lisa

It is beginning to look a lot like christmas - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and I made a new christmas card.


I made a card with the stampset Reindeer and a tree from Gerda Steiner designs. With masking paper and a lot of planning I stamped this little scene.Then I coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I coloured the nose of one of the reindeers red and then I coloured it with the Clear Spectrum noir sparkle pen. All the other noses are coloured with the black glaze pen and then I applied glossy accents on all the noses. On a piece of white cardstock I stamped a sentiment from the stampset Santa's wonderland from Neat and tangled. With a black pen I doodled some lines on the white cardstock. I used Soap powder ink from Jenni Bowlin to make a background for the image. I used the same ink and a little snowstamp from the set Santa's wonderland from Neat and tangled to stamp little dots on the background. On a white card I adhered pink plaid design paper from the Country fair plaid paper pack from My favorite things and then I adhered the white panel with foamtape on the card.

It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I just couldn't wait to color the adorable little mouse from the new Gerda Steiner Designs Smell like Christmas set:

  • stamp the adorable little mouse from the Gerda Steiner Designs Smell like Christmas set with Versafine Onyx Black onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper and color the image with Derwent Inktense pencils
  • stamp the first part of the sentiment from the same set with Versafine Onyx Black and the second part with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder
  • cut the panel apart with one of the Avery Elle Dotted Borders dies
  • adhere a strip of pink patterned paper behind the panel and mount everything onto a Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardbase


I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
