How to Make a Shaker Card Using Ziplock Bags-Gerda Steiner Designs






Aloha Guys!

Today I wanted to share another way to make a flat shaker card, just like how people are using the Fuse tool.  If you don’t have a Fuse tool, you can try this method.  I decided to use a Ziplock bag instead of the fuse.  It’s still Flat, which I like very much.  It’s easy to mail, when the card is flat.  That’s the reason why I like making flat shakers.  I mail out a lot of Holiday cards, so this is simple enough to mass produce if you wanted to, which I plan to.  I’m using the Gerda Steiner Designs, Peeking Friends stamp set.  This stamp set is perfect, for shaker cards or tucking them behind an object, behind a window…There’s so many possibilities with this stamp set.  I know i’ll be using this set a lot this holiday season.  All the card stocks I used on this card, can be four at PaperTempress and I’ll leave the links below for all the supplies I used on this card.  I hope you like this card and it gave you some ideas on making your own, easy shaker cards.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please like, comment and subscribe.  Thanks again!

Creating A Simple Scene using PaperTemptress Card Stocks




Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a Simple Scene using only Card stock from PaperTemptress and Gerda Steiner Designs Stamps.  When I normally make scenery, I tend to use distress inks to create the scene, but today, I’ll be using the card stocks instead. The Stamp sets I’ll be using are Happy Fall and Monster Party.  I’m using the Cordovan Leather as my frame, I cut it using the MFT’s Horizontal Stitched strips die.  It created 2 panels which I’ll be using to make my scene.  I’m using the Blue Parchment Card stock as my sky, it matches perfectly for the sky because of the color and the texture of it.  I stamped out the small squirrel and colored him using my Copic markers, on Neenah solar white card stock.  I also cut out a sun and some clouds using one of the Lawn fawn dies.  The texture on the paper I used for the sun is amazing, it almost feels like fabric. It’s the Crepe paper and it comes in multiple colors, to meet your needs.  I stamped out my kites on the sky I created and paper pieced them.  I also embossed the sentiment on the Cordovan Leather card stock.  I have a tutorial above for the step by step, on how I made this card.  I hope you enjoyed this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks again 🙂

Gerda Steiner Designs Little Bunny Girl Card

Gerda girl 1

gerda girl 2

Aloha Guy!  Today I’m sharing this cad I made using Gerda Steiner Designs Little Bunny Girl that I colored using Copic Markers.  I colored this couple days ago for the daily marker 30 day challenge and put the card together today.  I Love this little girl, she is too darn cute!  This is a Digital Image that can be purchased at Gerda Steiner Designs and I’ll put a link below for your convenience.  After coloring her, I cut her out using the New  MFT’s Inside and Out stitched rectangle die and also cut a Kraft card stock using a bigger size.  This die is really cool since it has diagonal stitches instead of the regular.  I also used some retired Stampin Up DSP behind the panel with the girl.  I have so much paper taking up a lot of space in my craft room that I no longer have the room to buy any new design papers so most of my papers I used are now all retired, lol.  I cut this DSP out a little bigger than the front panel and I used the ranger’s distress tool to distress the edges also cutting places here and there to make the paper look even older.  This DSP is double sided so when I curled up some areas, you can see the pattern that’s on the other side, which I thought was pretty cool.  I then added some color to the distress edges using the Vintage photo distress ink pad and a blending tool.  I also added some color to the front panel and the Kraft with the same ink pad.  I stamped 3 small butterflies using Not quite Navy ink pad form stampin Up and fussy cut them out.  These 3 butterflies are all different shapes and sizes.  I attached every thing together and added some Blue rhinestone to the butterflies for the finishing touches.  I also stamped out this Arrow and stamped this sentiment and cut it out and placed it on the bottom corner.  I hope you like this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much for stopping by and much Mahalo:)

All the supplies I used are in the links below Except the Stampin Up Items.  Thank you

Gerda Steiner Designs New Collection-Late but with Love



Aloha Guys!

Today I’m very exited to share with you this Clear Stamp Collection from Gerda Steiner Designs.  As you guys know, I am on the Design Team for Gerda Steiner Designs but I was using her stamps way before being on the DT because I love her stamp collections.  With that being said, she released her very First Clear stamp set.  She has both digital and rubber stamps available on her site which I’ll put a link below.  These Photopolymer stamps are very high quality because I used a lot of different ink to stamp these out to see how well it stamps.  It stamped really clear and crisp.  Without further due, I’ll talk about this card I made using this stamp set.  I stamped out the snail and the envelope in Momento tuxedo black ink so that I can use my Copic markers to color them.  I have a piece of white card stock which I embossed using Stampin Up’s retired cloud embossing folder.  I distressed the edges for the sky portion using both broken china and peacock feathers.  I also cut some vellum using Mama elephants’ Trio die to use for my clouds and cut some actual clouds using Lawn Fawn’s Blue skies cloud die. I stamped out a hill of envelopes using Tim Holtz distress inks and used water to liquify the envelopes.  I also embossed the sentiment “Late but with Love” using Rangers’ Liquid Platinum.  For a Full Tutorial on how i made this card, Please check out my Youtube Channel.  Also, Please press the like button and Subscribe for more inspirations and ideas.  Much Mahalo:)

Hi Everyone!

Today I made a GateFold Card for Graduation using the Tassel I made with Embroidery thread.  I used a stamp that I ‘d purchased from and colored it using Copic markers.  I’ll list the colors I used below.  I attached the image on and Oval paper that I’d cut using Stampin Up’s Oval Framelits with very vanilla Card stock.  After that, I cut 2 pieces of Whisper White paper with Stampin Up’s Top Note Die.  I distressed all the cut pieces  with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink pad.  I put dimentionals on the Oval piece and attached it to the Top note piece.  On the other Top Note cut out piece, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin Up’s Word Play Stamp set.  I put dementionals Only on the Left side on the top Note Cut piece and attached it to the front of the Gatefolded card base.  The Card base was cut with double sided Pebbles Desingner Paper into 12″x5 1/2″ Scored at 2″, 4″,8″, and 10″.  Fold the scor line and make the base of the card.  Thank you for  watching and I hope you enjoyed the video.  Please press the like Button and Please Subscribe if you haven’t already, I’d really appreciate it!  Thanks again!

Some odd girl stamp 60s Mae-Copic Coloring

This video doesn’t exist

Today I’m sharing several videos that I uploaded on my YouTube channel.  I’m quite disappointed with the quality of this video.  I even purchased the new Sony HD camcorder to record so my videos will look better but I’m probably converting it wrong or something:(. It looks perfect on my iMovie but when i upload it, the video gets distorted.  Can anyone help??

This video is a Copic Coloring that I did on some odd girl digital image, 60s Mod Mae.  I am not an expert in coloring with copic markers, I just wanted to share how I like to color.  I want  to warn you in advance that this is a Long video.  I tried my best to edit it but it’s still long.  The colors I used are:

E00, E000, E11, E21, R22, R20, R30, E53, E55, E57, E59,  B06, B05, B01, 100, C09, C07, C05, C03 and colorless blender

Thank you,
