Gerda Steiner Designs Stamps!

Hello everyone, I am sorry it has taken me so long to get these up. My life is very busy but I post when I can. I am trying to get on a good schedule but it's been very hard. So in past post I showed you some new stamps I got. Well, I am excited to share with you what I have done with them. I absolutely love these stamps and can't wait to do more with them.

The two stamp sets I used were by Gerda Steiner Designs. "Happy Fall" and Peekin' Pumpkin Kitty". I colored them with Distressed inks and used the "Thanks" die by Lawn Fawn.

I wanted to let you know she has some really cute Christmas stamps that are adorable. I am save up for them. (hee hee). Enjoy  and happy crafting!!

Hip hip hooray... the holidays are here!

    Hello, everyone! The holidays have started. I am so excited! I have two cards for you from "Lawn Fawn". I just loves these cute stamps.

     I have been so busy with work but did have to get my some cards done. It's my outlet...apart from my family and friends, this makes me happy. Now who do I send these too? (smiles)

     The card on the left is from the stamp set "Booya" by" Lawn Fawn". Don't you just love the cute little spider hanging from the tree. (smiles) I also used the "grassy border" from "Lawn Fawn" as well.  The tree die is from "Impression Obsession." I love how I could make it an eerie looking tree or I could change it up and make it a fall festive tree if I want to. I masked out the moon by using a 1" circle punch and the blended the colors of the night sky with Tim Holtz "Distressed inks".  ( I am still learning that technique.) I also did this technique with the grass as well. I colored the cute little ghosts with "Copic Markers." I just love these marker. They are a little pricey but I have to say so worth it! Last but not least...I cute the card out using the "small stitched Rectangles" by "Lawn Fawn."

     The Second card, I also used the new Lawn Fawn "Toboggan Together" stamp set. I just love these little deers. To make the falling snow, I used "Simon Says Stamp, " Falling backgrounds." The inks I used were Memento Black, Memento Rhubarb Stalk, Tumbled glass by distressed inks and Staz-On Opaque. I colored the little deer with "Copic Markers".  The dies I used in this card, from "Lawn Fawn", were the "Mini Snowflakes", "Small stitched circle", "Forest Border", the "small stitched rectangles", and the "hillside borders. "To give this card a little pop, I used "Stickles, Xmas Red", by Ranger and added a little clear "Wink-of-Stella, " just to give it that touch of glittering snow.

I hope you liked my cards and would love to hear feed back from you. Just leave a comment below. Thank you all so much and Happy Crafting!

     Here are a few video's that have really inspired me! Enjoy!
