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…

Guest Designer - Two Cards & Two Videos by Therese Calvird!

Hi there,
I'm Therese from www.lostinpaper.com  and I am so excited to share two cards and two videos today.  My first design features a sweet stamp set called Coffeesaurus and can you tell just how happy he is to be part of the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!   Head on over to find out how you can WIN!
I filmed as I created so you could watch the process.

I kept the design fun and simple and used a sentiment from Hedgehog with Sign so that I could use this as an all occasion card, who knows when you are going to need a coffee drinking dinosaur, right?





For my second design I wanted to make it look like this little Pool Piggie was in a swimming pool and I thought it would be fun to make an easy Circle Slider card.


The sentiment for this set came from the Go Wild stamp set


and I have a video here showing you how this came together.


Hope you have enjoyed both of my cards and videos today!  Have a great and crafty day, Hugs,
