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.

Hugs,

Relax... Purrrfect Father's Day Card

Hello crafty friends!  It's Lisa here with you today and I have a super Clean and Simple card to share with you that I think would be perfect to use for this upcoming Father's Day...





To create the front part of my card all I had to do was adhere pattern paper, die cut a circle off the lower right corner and stamp the first part of my sentiment.  Next, I stamped the cute kitty from the On the Bookshelf Stamp set where the opening is and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I find these markers are some of my favorite for creating the look of thin wisps of fur.  To finish the card I stamped the second part of my sentiment on the inside of the card and tied some twine in a bow at the top.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you get a chance to check out all of the cute sets available at this time in the store!
Happy Crafting!
Lisa

On the Bookshelf - Jeannie (InsideoutJeans)

Hello there! Today, I'm back with another card using the On the Bookshelf stamp set. I'm a sucker for nerdy glasses and since I didn't use the main cat with the adorable Harry Potter-esque glasses, I had to this time.

I wanted to do a pretty simple card, so I decided to create a circular frame of the items in the stamp set. I stamped these out and created a mask for the circle of the items. I used distress inks to color in a blue ombre (Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, and Peacock Feathers) and colored up the images using alcohol markers.



It's a really simple card, but I think it's pretty cute. The main star is the kitty in the middle. I just love him! I didn't even add a sentiment because I felt like it wasn't needed. I can give this card to any bookworm.



Hope you liked this card. This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites so I hope you love it too!

Until next time!
