Where is the candy? - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a halloween card. :)


I made a card with the stampset Where is the candy from Gerda Steiner designs. I stamped the funny dog and then I coloured it with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I fussy cut the image. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and added faux stitching lines above and belowe the image. I have cut the strip with the sentiment and then I adhered it on a purple card. I adhered the image with foamtape on the card. I also added faux stitching on the card. Then I stamped stars in a couple of sizes from the stampset Big greetings from Avery elle on the card. With the banner punch from Stampin up I punched a little banner from white cardstock and I stamped another 3 stars on it. I added a staple with the Tiny attacher and then I adhered the banner on the card.

Where is the Candy | Distress Background | Scrapbena Creations

Hello, it is Jenn from Scrapbena Creations on YouTube. I am back with another card as a Guest Designer. This time I am using the adorable too cute to spook stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs called Where is the Candy. I chose the cat and dog in costumes images for this scene card. The fence and bats were from a My Favourite Things stamp set called Frightful Friends, but you can use whatever you have in your stash!


My watercolour paper of choice is Canson XL watercolour paper because it is high quality and affordable. I stamped out the images with Versafine Black Onyx ink and created masks to make an outdoor Halloween scene. The moon was created using a circle punch with full adhesive post-it note paper, which I used for all of the masks. Once everything was masked, I used Distress Inks to create the background. I love purples for Halloween night scenes. From lightest to darkest, I used shaded lilac, wilted violet, seedless preserves and black soot. For the ground, I used bundled sage with a tiny bit of black soot. I spritzed some water over the entire scene with the masks still on the images and blotted it with a paper towel for an amazing textured background.


I watercoloured the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I list the colours used in my process video, which you can watch by clicking the play button on the image below.




Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you enjoyed this card and it inspires you to make some cute Halloween cards. Happy crafting.

Fall is here - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting my first card as an official member from the Gerda Steiner designs design team. Gerda asked me for the team. I am going to make cards with new stampset and I really love it!


My first official card is made with the stampset Fall in love from Gerda Steiner designs. I stamped both the tree and the owl couple and then I coloured them with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I have fussy cut both images. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 50 from Crealies I have cut a large square from white cardstock and then I cut a smaller square out of the large square, With the Fresh cut grass border die from My favorite things (retired) I cut a grass border from the smaller square. I have coloured the grass with Mowed lawn distress ink. With the Mini cloud edges stencil from My favorite things and Tumbled glass distress ink I made a sky background on the upper part of the smaller sqaure. I placed the smaller sqaure back again in the larger square and then I adhered everything on a white card with foamtape. I adhered the tree and the owls with foamtape on the card. I have used a sentiment from the Fall in love stampset from Gerda Steiner designs for the card. I coloured the sentiment with Scattered straw and Spiced marmelade distress ink to give it a fall look that matches really well with the images on the card.

Fall Coffee Lovers BlogHop | Coffee Monster - Insideoutjeans (Jeannie)


Happy Friday everyone! Can you smell Fall in the air? It's almost here and I'm really excited because Fall is my FAVORITE season. I love chunky sweaters, cute scarves, the Fall chill in the air, and my favorite, Salted Caramel Lattes.

I'm participating in this Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop and wanted to share this super duper cute card featuring one of Gerda Steiner Design's newest stamp set, Coffee Monster. I'm an avid coffee feen and if I don't get my morning cup, I'm grumpy.

I created this card with the new set:
It's a shaker card! In addition to using sequins, I wanted to make this a little special and use coffee beans... and let me tell you, it smells amazing! For this card, I had to use four layers of foam to create the shaker compartments and used the sentiment to hide the foam tape. I wanted two compartments for the coffee beans so they just didn't just fall to the bottom.

For the back of the card, I used distress ink with some water and used an actual coffee cup to create the cup imprints. It looks like I used that paper to set my coffee cup on! 
These little monsters are so adorable! Pair them with coffee and this just may be one of my favorite set! Now if only coffee shops made their Fall coffee drinks all year... mMm... 


Thanks for stopping by. Until next time!

Hippo with Butterfly | You Were on My Mind | Scrapbena Creations

Hello my name is Jenn. Some of you may know me from my YouTube channel Scrapbena Creations. I am thrilled to be guest designing for Gerda Steiner Designs. First up, I have a card using the adorable Hippo with Butterfly stamp. The expression on his face gets me every time!


I coloured the images using a combination of copic and spectrum noir alcohol markers. I used greys for the hippo and added a light purple to his undertone for a twist! There was purple in the paper so I thought it would be fun! I coloured the hippo's t-shirt and all of the butterflies in bright colours that matched the paper I used from the Doodlebug Designs Fairy Tales collection.


I stamped the images onto spectrum noir premium cardstock and cut it out using a stitched journal die from Lawn Fawn. To cut out the flower patterned paper, I used a fancy scalloped rectangle die from My Favourite Things. I adhered fun foam on the back of the panel with the hippo to give some dimension to the focal image. For the t-shirt, I added an enamel heart. I then used my spectrum noir glitter overlay pen and glossy accents on the butterflies to make them sparkle and shine! I glittered up the t-shirt as well because you can never have too much glitter!


I used a banner die on paper from the same collection to stamp and heat emboss the sentiment, "You were on my mind." I felt like the hippo could not get that little pink butterfly off his mind as it tickled his nose! You can watch the process video for this card by clicking play on the image below.


I hope you enjoyed this clean and simple card. I look forward to coming back and sharing more card creations using the Gerda Steiner Designs Where is the Candy? stamp set. Have a lovely day and happy crafting!

Lucky Duck Pop Up Box with Bottom Window - InsideoutJeans (Jeannie)

Hello everyone! I had made this pop up box awhile back for fun and Gerda had asked me to make a tutorial because there were a lot of questions about how to go about doing it.
It's actually a pretty simple card, especially now since there are pop up box dies out there. I, however, did it the old fashioned way and made mine from scratch. It's actually bigger than the pop up box dies since those are A2 sized so it's a really good card for a special person.
It's quite hard to explain how I created it since there's a lot of steps, so I made a YouTube tutorial on the steps and all the measurements are listed at the end of this post.

Tutorial

The bottom window, which is the main feature, is one I cut out with an Xactoknife. Using acetate and a xyron sticker maker to adhere the images, it adds a special element to the card. The fish hang from the waves above and appear to be floating in the "aquarium". Don't you just love acetate?!
I hope you all enjoy this card! It's a really fun one. It has a lot of moving parts but if you pre-cut everything out first, and then assemble, it actually goes pretty quickly. 


→ Dimensions  
Card base: 6.5” x 12”
Score lines on the long side: 2.75”, 5.5”, 8.25”, 11”
Score lines on the short side: 2.75”

I love you this much

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this Wedding Anniversary Card for my husband using the new cute Gerda Steiner Designs More than Pie stamp set:


  • stamp the little bear from the new Gerda Steiner Designs More than Pie set with Versafine (Onyx Black) and color the image with Faber-Castell Albrecht-Dürer Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • apply some Distress Oxide Inks (Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet) to a piece of watercolor paper and add Pearlized Water for more texture
  • cut out a heart from this background using one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hearts Stackables dies
  • run a stitched panel of cream cardstock through the Big Shot together with a woodgrain embossing folder
  • stamp the custom-made sentiment with the help of the Gerda Steiner Designs Holiday Friends, the Gerda Steiner Designs Cheerful Hedgehogs, the Gerda Steiner Designs Bats and Memento (Tuxedo Black)
  • color the sentiment strip and the edge of a panel with Alcohol Markers to match the rest of the card
  • add a strip of silver glitter paper underneath the sentiment strip and layer all the pieces together

I hope you got inspired.

More than Pies - Spinning Pies - Jeannie (InsideoutJeans)

Hey everyone! It's Jeannie, back again with another card using the More than Pie stamp set. I noticed the bear that wasn't holding any pie and wanted to surround him with pies!

Using acetate, I created a spinner wheel for the pies to stick to and spin around the bear. For the bear to be in front, I had to create a stationary piece that the pies can move freely behind. That's where foam tape comes in handy.



It's a bit hard to explain in words, so I'm also including my YouTube Video Tutorial for it.

Regardless, I think the card comes out to be really cute and it's an easy card made interactive by adding a brad to it. The acetate also makes it look like the pies are floating as long as you don't look too closely.

Hopefully, you enjoyed this card and checked out the video to learn how to create one as well.



Thanks for visiting and I'm sure I'll be back with another card for you guys soon.

Guest Designer- Fall In Love

Hi Everyone!
Kimberly from Kimberly's Crafty Spot.
Today, I am sharing a project as a Guest Designer for
Gerda Steiner Designs.
(This blog post contains affiliate links which adds no costs to you but helps me out! So Thank you!!)

I am using the Fall In Love 4x6 stamp set,
so fun and perfect for all those fall cards and projects.

 
For the card, I started out with a cream colored top folding A2 card base made from 110# cream card stock from Recollections. I stamped the two separate leaves from the stamp set in three ink colors: Desert Storm (Memento), Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke (SU!) inks. Then I sponged the edges with the Crumb Cake Ink. Next, I stamped the cute squirrel couple on Crumb Cake card stock (SU) in Rich Cocoa ink (Memento) then colored them in with copic markers with some white color pencil accents, then fussy cut them out. Then I die cut a rectangle using the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles dies (MFT) out of crumb cake card stock and stamped the sentiment "Fall In Love" in rich cocoa ink as well as, the leaves then I popped up the rectangle on the card base with foam adhesive and the cute squirrel couple to finish off the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

This month the image is Sweet tooth mouse from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the cute mouse image with my Polychromos pencils.

I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set Circle flowers from Woodware above the image.

More than Pie - Peek a Boo card - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hello everyone! It's Jeannie back again with another card using one of the newest stamp set, More than Pie. These bears are ADORABLE!

I really liked the stamp of the bear staring at the pie and the bear eating the pie. It tells a pretty simple story so I wanted to translate it into a card. More specifically, I used these two stamps in a Peek a Boo card. The idea is that when you open the card up, a new image slips into the place of the initial one. Pretty cool, huh?

Here is the front of the card: the bear is staring happily at the pie.


Once the recipient opens the card, you see the bear eating the pie! This card tells the story perfectly with a little magic. 


I also posted a short video of this card in action on my instagram, InsideoutJeans, if you want to check see how it works. 

Hope everyone enjoyed this fun card and I can't wait to see what everyone makes with this set.

Guest Designer- Happy Fall Owls

Hi Everyone!
Kimberly from Kimberly's Crafty Spot here today.
I hope you are having a great day so far.
(This blog post contains affiliate links which adds no costs to you but helps me out! So Thank you!!)

I am sharing a card featuring a *NEW* Gerda Steiner Designs stamp set: Fall In Love.


For this card, I started with a crumb cake (SU!) side folding card base. I took another piece of crumb cake card stock and stamped the tree, leaves and sentiment all in Rich Cocoa ink (Memento) then copic colored the images. I also stamped the cute Owl couple from the set and copic colored them and fussy cut them out to pop up on the tree branch. I added a strip of chocolate chip card stock to the edge of the panel once I cut it down for the card front. I round the two corners then layered everything. I finished the card with some white prismacolor pencil accents and some glossy accents to the beak and feet.
Thank so much for stopping by!
