Happy Fall and Let's eat Cupcakes

Hi there,

I created two cards using the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall Printable and the Let's Eat Cupcake Printable which are available in the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop:

  • color the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall Printable with Derwent Inktense Pencils, watered-down Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint) and a damp watercolor brush
  • mount the panel onto a piece of kraft cardstock stamped with leaves and from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall set in Altenew Crisp Ink Mocha
  • embellish the card with some natural twine before adhering it to the cardbase

And this is my second project:

  • color the Gerda Steiner Designs Let's Eat Cupcake Printable with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • apply Distress Ink Pumice Stone through the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Feather for a subtle background
  • add a strip of silver glitter paper and a strip of purple cardstock before adhering the panel to a cardbase

I hope you got inspired.

Christmas CUTplorations REDUX

Hi there,

we are having the Christmas CUTplorations REDUX Blog Hop over on the STAMPlorations Blog and these are my creations.

On my first project I used the CUTplorations Let it snow phrase die:

  • stamp one of the houses from the STAMPlorations Houses set and the little fence from the STAMPlorations Houses Extras set with Versafine Clair Morning Mist onto a watercolor panel
  • color the scene with Altenew Watercolors
  • cut out the CUTplorations Let it snow phrase die twice from sturdy white cardstock and layer both pieces on top of each other
  • add dimensional snow using the Tsukineko Radiant Neon Amplify White

And on my second project I used the CUTplorations Stitched Winter Landscape die:

  • create a sky background using a panel of watercolor paper, a Mini Ink Blending Tool and Distress Oxide Ink (Tumbled Glass, Broken China)
  • mist the background with Pearlized Water for a subtle snow effect
  • cut out the CUTplorations Stitched Winter Landscape from smooth white carstock and color the trees and the house with Copic, Touch Twin Brush and Delta Markers
  • stamp the snowman from the STAMPlorations Winter Chill set with Memento Tuxedo Black and color the image with Alcohol Markers as well
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with the same black ink
  • add highlights with a white gel pen

Enjoy the rest of the hop.
