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 🙂

How to Color a Pumpkin-Gerda Steiner Designs

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m coloring some pumpkins.  I am using Gerda Steiner Designs Digital Images as well as Happy Fall Clear stamp set.  The pumpkins came from the Halloween cats and more and I also printed the hedgehog with pumpkin.  I resized the pumpkins in 3 different sizes before I printed them out.  That’s the cool thing about digital stamps, you can resize them to fit your needs.  I wanted to create a fall theme so I’m using some textured Ivory card stock and stamped a background using the Impressions and Obsessions  with Kalaidacolor ink pads.  I really like the way the background turned out.  I colored the pumpkin, using my Shinhan Touch twin markers.  I like my pumpkins brownish orange, I think it makes the pumpkins really pop.  I hope you guys enjoyed this 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-Kitten in Love

2015/02/img_7531.jpg

2015/02/img_7532.jpg

Aloha Guys!

Today I want to share with you a card I made using these adorable Kittens in Love.  This is a Gerda Steiner Designs Digital image and I absolutely love this.  I’ll leave a link below if you like to check it out.  As most of you guys know, I was lucky enough to be on Gerda Steiner Designs DT so I do get Physical and Digital stamps from Gerda to Create projects for her.  However, I LOVE her stamps!!  Not because I’m on the DT but because I Love her adorable, whimsical stamps.  I was using her stamps way before I was asked to be on the team.  So even though I create a lot of projects using her images, it’s because I want to NOT because I have to.

Ok, now lets get back to this card.  I printed the image out on Neenah Solar white, I use this card stock for all of my coloring images besides watercolor paper.  I cut out the Kittens using Stampin Up’s Heart Famelits.  I used a soft sky car stock and embossed it using the Stampin Up’s Retired Clouds embossing folder and distressed it using Tim Holtz peacock feathers distress ink.  I also cut a round hill, free hand and inked it up using Mowed lawn distressed ink.  I continued the hill on the heart piece where the kittens are sitting and distressed that as well with mowed lawn ink to give them a ground to sit on.  I mentioned that this was a Neenah but I used the Inktense pencils to color the kittens.  I only used a little bit of water, just to liquify the color so it was ok.  I gave them some patches as well to give them some character.  I lined up the Heart with the hill so it matched up perfectly and put the card together.  Just so that you know, all the cards that meet the requirement for OWH, I send the cards to them.  So I added Love you more sentiment since they always need love cards:)  I do have a Full Tutorial on my yotube channel if you’d like to check that out.  Thank you so much for visiting and Please Subscribe for more inspirations and ideas.  Much Mahalo:)

Gerda Steiner Designs New Collection-Late but with Love

2015/02/img_7539.jpg

2015/02/img_7540.jpg

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:)

Valentine Lollipop Holder-Gerda Steiner Design and Stampin Up

2015/01/img_7543.jpg

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m sharing this Valentine Lollipop Holder using the Gerda Steiner Designs Cat in Heart Digital image and Stampin Up’s Tag Punch.  I’m making these treats for my Kids school friends and this is very simple to mass produce.  I printed all the images out and I colored all of them using the Alcohol markers.  I made some different than others to give more interest to the design.  I used the Stampin Up’s Scalloped tag punch and punched both ends of the tag measuring 2″x6″ of I can get more out of a 12″x12″ paper.  I need to make about 80 of these so I really wanted to simplify things.  I put the lollipop through the front hole and attached a ribbon and made a bow.  I also cut a little tag using a retired Jewelry tag punch and wrote my daughter’s name on it.  I then used a jump ring to attache the tag through the ribbon.  This finishes off the treat and Now i can pass them out when it’s Valentines Day.  I hope you like this little project and I do have a Full step by step video tutorial on how I made this on my youtube Channel.  Thank you so much for visiting and please subscribe for more inspirations and ideas.  Much Mahalo:)
