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 🙂

2 Cards Using Gerda Steiner Designs and Papertemptress Card stock

Aloha Guys!

Today I have 2 cards for you, using the new Hippo in Disguise stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs.  I absolutely adore this Hippo, he’s super cute.  I colored him in many different mediums, which I show in the video.  I wasn’t planning on making 2 cards but it just came together.  The first one is colored with Copic markers on Cryogen White card stock from PaperTemptress.  I’ve used this card stock before, showing how nicely the marker blends.  If feels like the marker glides on top of the paper, making blending really easy.  It also has a slight shimmer, which is nice also.  If you have a hard time blending with Copic markers, you should definitely try these out.  It makes blending a whole lot easier.

This stamp set is really awesome because you can dress up the Hippo in different ways, which I think it’s super fun.  He can be a Super Hippo or a Vampire Hippo.  I’ve made both and I colored using Spectrum markers, Prismacolor pencils, Watercolor…I wanted to show you different options for coloring incase you didn’t have Copic markers.

The card stock I placed behind the Hippos are Eggplant Feltweave and Lambwood Feltweave.  These card stocks are very heavy weight and has a really nice texture to it.  I love these colors too, they go great together.  I’m also using the 110lb Neenah card stock as my base.  You can find them at Papertemptress, as well as Tupelo Designs LLC.  I recently got some more in bulk, because I ran out.  I enjoy using this Heavy weight card stock.

The second card was watercolored, using my Akashiya watercolor markers.  I really love how this turned out.  I found this panel, which was made from Brusho’s when I was playing with them the other day and it seemed like the perfect background for the Watercolored hippo.   I don’t show the watercoloring portion but let me know if you guys like to see me use the Akashiya markers again.  I hope you liked these cards and let me know in the comment, which one you like better.  All the supplies I used will be listed below if you were interested in any of the items.  Thank you so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks again 🙂

Easy Shaker Card Using Vellum and Faber Castell Pencils-Gerda Steiner Designs and Paper Temptress

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a Quick and easy vellum shaker card using Paper Temptess Card stock/Vellum and Gerda Steiner Designs Rubber stamp called Monster Kid.  I’ll be using several different products today, and I’ll explain a little about these products as I go.  First off, I’m using Gerda’s Rubber stamp today, and she has Digital stamps, Clear stamps and Rubber stamps available in her store.  I use her Digital and Clear stamps all the time, but I think this is the first time I’m sharing her Rubber stamps.  Just to explain a little about her rubber stamps, her rubber stamps come in Rubber only form.  Which means, it doesn’t have the cling cushion that you normally use to stick the stamp on to your acrylic block.  You have the option to mount them onto a cling foam mount if you choose to do so. I like to use my bare rubber stamps with the Aileen’s tack it over and over glue, which I explain in the video.  Her rubber stamps are excellent quality and it’s very thick and deeply etched, which will give you a really great impression.  I decide to use watercolor pencils to color in this image and I’m using the Faber Castell’s Art grip watercolor pencils.  These watercolor pencils are highly pigmented, great quality pencils which blend really easily, as you can see in the video.  They’re available in color family sets as well as different quantity sets.  I have a few of the color family sets, and I didn’t have all the color pallet available to me, so I implemented the Peerless watercolor as well.  These are fantastic pencils, and I love them dearly.

I also made a simple shaker portion, using some of Paper Temptress’s yummy colored vellum.  I love making this simple shaker, which is simple to make yet very fun.  Her vellum is perfect for things like this, because they are very thick and high quality.  I love these purple and orange card stocks, which also has some texture to them, which will add some more interest to this card.  Her card stocks are very thick and sturdy, making them very easy to work with.  I hope you like this card and please check out the video for the step by step tutorial.

Aloha guys!

Today I’m doing some paper piecing using the Gerda Steiner Designs Monster Fun stamp set.  I just adore these monsters, so I had to use them again.  Instead of coloring them, I’ll be doing some paper piecing.  I’m sure we all have tons of scraps left over from projects so this a perfect way to use up some of those scraps of paper.  I stamped out multiple images on multiple pattern paper and fussy cut all of them out.  I chose 3 monsters for my card and attached them to circles, also backed with some scraps of paper.  I still have many monsters left over from this card which I can use on another project.  I have a full tutorial for this card above if you are interested.  I want to thank you guys so much for stopping by and please hit the subscribe and follow button for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks again

Gerda Steiner Designs Brand New Stamp Monster Party and Paper Temptress Card Stock

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a card using the Brand New Release of Gerda Steiner Designs Monster Party, Now Available for purchase in Gerda Steiner Designs Store.  I’m also using some of the Paper Temptress Card stocks, couple of my Favorite Vellum that the store carries.  I’ll have all the links to the supplies I used in the descriptions below.

I absolutely Love this new stamp set, it has the most cutest Monsters ever, which I’m sure you’ll agree.  I fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw them and I could not wait to start playing with them.  This week was not a good week for me, I am sick and I still am but I could not resist the temptation to make something with this so I made something very clean and simple.  I went ahead and used some of my Favorite vellums from Paper Temptress as well as her Crystal Mica Metallic card stocks.  I personally Love Vellum and I have a hard time finding patterned vellum so I’ll continue to use these vellums, until I use them all up, lol.  These vellums are not your ordinary vellum. They are textured but it’s also a Heavy duty vellum so your adhesive doesn’t even show up, unlike your ordinary vellum.  I LOVE them ❤

I cut 2 of the vellum piece, with a MFT’s stitched bubble die and stamped out the sentiment that says, Do I smell Cake?  I curved the sentiment slightly, so that it’ll line up with the thought bubble. I also stamped out the monster using MFT’s Hybrid black licorice ink on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored the monster with my Shinhan Touch Twin Alcohol markers and attached it onto some Crystal Mica Metallic card stock from Paper Temptress.  I hope you like this card and please check out the video for a full step by step tutorial.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Also, check out both Gerda Steiner Designs Blog as well as the Paper Temptress Blog for more inspirations from the Design Team.  I’ll leave the links below.  Thanks again

Aloha Guys!

Today I wanted to share this card I made using the Brand New Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall Stamp set.  This stamp set is Now Available in the Gerda Steiner Designs Store, which I’ll leave the link below.  This stamp set has so many cute critters, I had a hard time choosing which ones I wanted to use first.  I really love this squirrel with his puffy cheeks, and it reminded me of all the acorns he stuffed in his mouth.  I stamped out a whole pile of acorns using some masking technique and placed the squirrel on top of it.  I decided to use my Prismacolor pencils today as my coloring medium.  I stamped the squirrel in some brown momento ink and colored him using the same brown tone.  I also found some design paper that reminded me of fall and put my card together.  Pretty simple card but I really love the way it turned out.  I don’t have a video for this card because I didn’t know if I was going to share it or not.  I’ll also leave the Gerda Steiner Designs Blog link down below, so you can go visit and see all the fabulous Designs that the Design team made with this stamp set.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much 🙂
